The HypnoBooks are a brilliant new development of image-based, self-help courses

The HypnoBooks are an instruction manual and a DVD. They present a series of courses that incorporate the repeated screening of an hour long DVD program that affords you the time to enjoy a self-paced and deeply relaxing experience.

Viewing the DVD quietly, safely in your own home, you can build up your skills of memory and imagination. These are the tools you need to invisage and then create a new outlook on your life. This is a self-administrated, self-help course to help you change the conscious and unconscious blockages that may be stopping you from living the life you want.

Firstly the HypnoBook manuals help you plan the course of your new life rising above the distraction of pain. Then the trance-inducing DVD allows you to settle this chosen course into your unconscious and so fully resource yourself for the changes you want. The gentle hypnotic images providing self-help in an enjoyable and entertaining format.

How this program works

Rising above Pain is a unique program that combines the healing principles of focussed self-awareness and the power to make positive changes to your unconscious mind. The research, psychological theory and principles upon which the program is based recognise that you already have an array of personal resources to manage pain.

These personal resources include the natural ability to relax and an ability to choose what you pay attention to. This program will help you enhance these tools.

Pain is intrusive and disruptive. When it becomes chronic, pain dominates our thinking and feeling. Trying to cope with it takes up all our time and energy. The energy our body produces is a precious, yet limited resource. We need to understand how to make best use of this wonderful energy.

Medically prescribed and self-prescribed pain relieving medications can lose their effectiveness in the medium to long term, resulting in the need to take even stronger drugs. This can become an endless path, as our body becomes increasingly accustomed to the drugs, undermining their effectiveness. Fortunately, there are other approaches available for overcoming pain that can shift the control back into your hands.

This course offers the techniques to methodically establish, reinforce and achieve your goals to rise above pain.

Together, book and DVD combine to provide you with the tools to begin the road to successfully attaining the full enjoyment of your life.

Rising above Pain - ( excerpt from Chapter 1 Introduction )

The experience of pain, especially chronic pain, draws upon our physical, emotional and spiritual energies, energies that could be better spent on enjoying and expanding our lives. Feeling controlled by our experience of, and ineffectual responses to pain is no longer neccessary.

This program uses a potent set of techniques including some drawn from NeuroLinguistic Programming, guided imagery, cognitive restructuring and the teaching of self-hypnosis to help you to learn to discover and achieve comfort and ease from your current experiences of pain.

It also includes a revolutionary new development. For the first time, the known ability of moving images on a screen to focus attention is harnessed in this way for therapeutic ends to increase your ability to learn and use self-hypnosis.

Why use a DVD?

Moving images on a screen together with the spoken word are known to be a powerful hypnotic medium. Millions of people for a hundred years now have gone to the movies and willingly suspended their belief in a public yet very private place and let their imaginations soar. You can respond to and weave many messages on many levels through the flow of images and words. And that’s why there is a DVD component to this program.

The images in the DVD / video are of small birds coming to a suspended feeding bowl. The everyday, simple activity of the feeding blends in and out with their other life of sweeping through the sky. The guiding, spoken words are mixed with a very slow natural heartbeat that in turn blends with a gently pulsing, tidal water sparkle. These softly pulsing ripples float in and out with the natural intervals of deep, refeshing sleep.

This program will teach you to recognise, extend and actually enjoy applying skills you already have. It will help you to learn new skills and enjoy applying these. With this learning you can have a sense of mastery over your pain and over the management of your life.

As part of this process, the program will teach you how you can reconstruct your habitual ways of operating, to make your life more satisfying.
