Seth, the very high level, spiritual teacher and guide channeled many years ago by Jane Roberts, impressed me with his great wisdom and I started applying his exercises and concepts as soon as I discovered his books. One of the exercises I practiced and loved was his natural hypnosis exercise.
Seth explained how we are our best hypnotist. Natural hypnosis is simply giving ourselves our undivided attention. We have mind chatter anyway, repeating words and phrases over and over again, making it part of our belief system and reality. This is natural hypnosis, nothing mystical about it.
Using natural hypnosis deliberately to manifest what we want is easy to do. We already have much practice doing it unconsciously. Using positive affirmations repeated for a brief period of time is very powerful and works exceptionally well. I’ve used written and verbal positive affirmations since childhood and I can give numerous examples of how well this works.
Now some of you may be thinking, “I do affirmations all of the time, this isn’t anything new!” What’s different is the use of a specific period of time – five to ten minutes only – of deliberate focused attention on one affirmation. And forgetting all about it when you are done. It’s very concentrated and more powerful than saying or writing affirmations in general.
Seth suggests that we take five to ten minutes each day to focus on one particular statement as vividly as possible. This is a statement or an affirmation we want to see manifest into physical reality. This affirmation must feel comfortable to use — if it doesn’t, change it.
Let’s say, for example, you want a new job or career. Your affirmation may be something like, “I now have my ideal job, doing what I love and earning a great income”. You may want to insert an actual income figure in your affirmation. Word it so it feels just right.
I did this one several years ago for a particular job I wanted after graduating from college. Although there wasn’t an opening at the company I wanted to work for, I did get the job in an unusual way. In the meantime, I easily and quickly attracted another job that was similar which led me to certain people and circumstances. In a brief period of time, I was able to get my foot in the door of the company I wanted to work for originally. By doing this exercise, I set energies in motion which opened doors and attracted opportunities I was not aware of. I didn’t worry how it would play out, I just allowed it to happen. It all worked out even better than I expected.
So decide what affirmation you would like to use and begin. Every time your mind tries to wander, bring it right back to your statement or affirmation, repeating it mentally or out loud, over and over again – for only five to ten minutes (you may want to set a timer). Then forget all about it until the next day when you do this exercise again.
What you have just done is focused attention, natural hypnosis. According to Seth, if you do this exactly as mentioned, in at least three days, you will start to see the results of your intentions. Some may see it sooner. Continue doing the exercise regardless and allow the miracles to happen. Seth explains:
“Inner channels must become repatterned. There will be a feel to this that will serve as your own individual guidline. There is no need to continue the practice over ten minutes. In fact, many will find that difficult to do. Spending a longer period of time simply reinforces the idea of problems involved.” [The Nature of Personal Reality by Jane Roberts]
I wish everyone great success using natural hypnosis sessions in this way — it really works! For other great exercises and techniques by Seth, some of the books I highly recommend by Jane Roberts are Seth Speaks, The Nature of Personal Reality, Dreams and Projections of Consciousness and by Lynda Dahl — Beyond the Winning Streak: Using Conscious Creaton to Consistently Win at Life and Ten Thousand Whispers: A Guide to Conscious Creation.
