Hypnosis is a proven technique that allows people to reprogram their subconscious to change unwanted behaviors. Most books on self-hypnosis require the reader to memorize or record scripts, then put the book aside while they do their hypnosis work. But Instant Self-Hypnosis is the only self-hypnosis book that allows you to hypnotize yourself as you read, with your eyes wid ...more

I have a growing interest in Hypnosis and after some research I decided on this book by Forbes Robbins Blair. I found the concept of Self hypnosis very interesting and Robbins Blair helps cut through much of the mystique and myth surrounding this seemingly black art. The book does not rush the reader in to hypnotising themselves but put the reader at ease by dispelling any preconceived ideas about hypnosis before taking you through self hypnosis sessions. I found the book a useful first book to ...more
This was a really speedy read that gives a quick background on hypnotism but spends most of its time on application... which I appreciate. There are a variety of topics that you can choose from... from having better sex to melting fat to being motivated towards a goal of your choosing. After reading the book, I researched hypnotism a little bit on the internet, and apparently medical studies show that patients have less pain and require less meds if they are hypnotised... and one study showed th ...more
This isn't the kind of book you really finish reading. And I haven't had a chance to read it in a while- (plus I recently bought the new book by this author) The hypnosis excersizes actually do work but you have to be consistent, it's not a one time miracle cure. I have actually started seeing a hypnotherapist recently because sometimes it's hard to find that quiet time to do this for yourself. I really believe that these books combined with NLP meditation and Hypnotherapy will help me to find m ...more
If you're looking for more information about hypnosis, this isn't the book for you. However, if you don't care much about the history and just want to get on with it, then this is perfect. For being informative, I'd have to give this book two stars (as there are only three main ideas touched upon). However, that's not this book's focus; this book's focus is to get the reader into a hypnosis state and with the material provided, it does that indeed. The true title of this book should be "Hypnosis ...more
Brilliant! And so easy. If you journal regularly (and if not, why not?) you can use these techniques in your journaling. If you need to take five during the day, use some of the scripts to adopt a change or two. So simple even children can do it!

As a result of Hollywood and stage hypnotist, people have so many misconceptions about hypnosis. so much so, that if people don't want to lose their reputations, they need to use euphemisms because the word hypnotism carries with it so many negative connotations. But yeah, unlike many assume, hypnosis is not some trance state where one becomes like marionette doll, subject to the whims of the puppeteer. but yeah, rather hypnotism is something we've all experienced, it pretty much is a relaxed st ...more
I'm not certain if it is truly hypnosis, but the exercises included in the book definitely put me in a VERY relaxed state--and that is really what made this book worth my time.
After you read this book, about half are scripts for you to try out but I did have some time without my birds pestering me and I did seem to go a bit into this. I am going to try various scripts and try it out more. I am very interested in hypno right now since I am looking to have it professionally done. I have never been, so thought I would read about it since of course this was offered as a Kindle free book. yay.

Instant Self-Hypnosis was free when I downloaded it to my Nook.

The author provides some good scripts for autogenic training. It may help break habits that are unhealthy and not useful.

I recommend it to anyone who wants to use the techniques.
A very interesting book. I can't say that it worked particularly well for me, but when doing the first part you do fall into a bit of a trance, which is pretty damn neat. If you like screwing around with your mind, by all means pick it up.
Not sure I was helped by this book but I liked it. Since English isn't my first language the self hypnosis stuff didn't feel that it fit me exactly.
Robyn Wheeler
Blair gives you exact templates to help with bad habits like smoking and overeating as well as many more. Can't hurt to try, right?
Very informative. I have begun to use it although not long enough to know how well it works.
Interesting theory, I like the idea of self-hypnosis...
