  • Breaking alcohol drinking habits

    Time to break those bad alcohol drinking habits 

    There really is much more to life than just drinking. By breaking alcohol drinking habits you can go out and find an AMAZING life that does not rely on alcohol.

    Throughout your life, you may have been programmed by people drinking around you, by television programmes, adverts or living in a culture of drinking that has normalised it in your mind. Remember that there are people in every country in the world who drink very little and still have a good time.

    If you are using alcohol to help you relax or are relying on it in any way, try to find other, non-alcohol-related ways of relaxing and enjoying yourself so that your drinking doesn’t end up getting out of control. Sort out every area of your life so you can feel happier and more relaxed in your week.

    I recommend listening to alcohol reduction hypnotherapy recordings at bedtime to break drinking habits and also to help release emotional stress so that you feel relaxed and sleep better. You can listen to other titles of hypnotherapy recordings as well, such as ‘Build Confidence & Self Esteem’ and ‘Relaxation’, which will boost your positive feelings about yourself. When you are naturally relaxed, you won’t feel the need for a drink.

    TIPS for breaking alcohol drinking habits:

    • Take a shower or have a bath after work to relax you
    • Change into comfortable clothes when you finish your working day
    • Drink herbal tea in the evening
    • Drink sparkling water in a wine glass with a slice of lemon instead of alcohol
    • Listen to hypnotherapy recordings after work or at bedtime
    • Use the techniques in this book to change your life for the better
    • Listen to hypnotherapy alcohol reduction recordings to release cravings and reset the program in your mind

    Take the b out of booze and ooze personality without alcohol. Be the life and soul of the party without a drink. Work on your confidence so that you don’t feel you need to have a drink to enjoy yourself.

    Visualise your life positive technique

    Let go of the negative film in your mind of you being ‘the drunk’. Instead, visualise yourself doing healthy things with your time, such as going to the theatre, sailing, running, watching movies, reading books ... It’s your choice.

    Photo drink diary

    Use your phone camera to make a photo drink diary by photographing everything you drink (alcoholic and non-alcoholic). This way you will really see what you are consuming. Share the pictures with a supportive friend so that you have to face up to what you are drinking. Eventually, your photo drink diary will include mainly non-alcoholic drinks, with the occasional drink of alcohol.

    SMILE as you think about being happy without a drink. it is easier than you think to start breaking alcohol drinking habits.

  • Let go of the negative

    How to let go of the negative to achieve true success -  

    The book that is changing lives...  "Cut the Crap and Feel Amazing" by Ailsa Frank

    Have you ever wondered how to let go of the negative to achieve true success? Well, this book has been stirring up the publishing world with the rights already sold in several languages. What makes this book different is that author Ailsa Frank is a seasoned hypnotherapist. She teaches you how to let go of the negative to achieve true success. Early on in the book, Ailsa stresses the importance of shifting the negative thoughts and patterns from the subconscious so you can make amazing things happen in every area of your life.

    Many people believe in the law of attraction and positive thinking. If you haven't released the limiting beliefs on an unconscious level, you will end up layering positive feelings on top of a negative foundation. Eventually, you can become frustrated as you find yourself unable to achieve what you really want to. Just like building a house with unstable foundations, eventually, the house will begin to develop cracks and problems. The book has been written in a way which moves your subconscious mind on from negative thoughts to positive ways of thinking as you read it.

    The aim of the book is to “gradually cut the negativity from your life and feel AMAZING.”

    Cut the Crap and Feel Amazing empowers you to rise above the drama and get into the AMAZING zone. Ailsa shares her tried and tested methods which she has used with thousands of clients in her one-to-one hypnotherapy sessions and in her established hypnosis CDs and download range. By adjusting your mindset you will learn to manage your life better and sort through the things you need to change. The useful step-by-step tips and chapter summaries make it easy to apply the techniques to everyday issues; stress, finances, relationships, parenting, addictions, health, heartache, and loss...making it a guide for life. Written with common sense guidance, inspiring client stories and great anecdotes you will soon be living life in the AMAZING zone with new motivation. The book is easy to read with simple but effective techniques to show you how to let go of the negative and achieve true success.

    Daily challenges

    Ailsa is an experienced hypnotherapist working with topics including alcohol reduction, building confidence, wealth, career success, weight loss. She works with adults, families, children, and teenagers. The thread of the book is to find the way through the negative challenges which people face on a daily basis. Even when things are not amazing, she encourages readers to use their energy to find solutions by taking control of thoughts and ultimately the situation.

    "People face real problems on a daily basis perhaps a parent with dementia, a friend with cancer or a financial struggle. By using the techniques to shift the negative worries you can stop yourself slipping into more negative thoughts and situations. The techniques will also release old situations from reoccurring such as always attracting having a difficult boss, never finding the right love or never having enough money. By healing the deep beliefs you unconsciously hold, you can free yourself to find an enjoyable way through even a tough situation" says Ailsa.

    People often question why bad things happen when they were trying to be positive. The book explains how the subconscious can be holding you back. Then the book gives you the tools to eliminate and ultimately let go of the negative thinking on a subconscious level. You can live your life in the amazing zone by using the techniques in this book.

    One of the techniques from the book to help you release negative spiralling thoughts is Ailsa's "Clouds in the Sky" technique.

    To release negative thoughts or worry, using the fingers of your right hand to rub, tap or press the knuckles of your left hand to reassure yourself that everything will be fine. You can do this subtly in front of other people – if you clasp your hands, no one will notice you rubbing, tapping or pressing your knuckles. Say to yourself, ‘Let it go. Let it pass.’ Imagine the bad feeling passing by. Thoughts are fluid, moving objects that will pass like clouds move across the sky if you allow them to do so. Repeat the exercise until the bad feelings pass. Also repeat it regularly throughout the day to ward off anxious or worried feelings. 

     “This book leaves you feeling like you’ve had a heart to heart with a wise friend. Ailsa has something new to offer with no mumbo-jumbo nonsense. I stayed with the book to the end. Go on then why not Cut the crap and Feel Amazing!” Amanda Riley-Jones, freelance journalist

  • How can hypnosis help to reduce alcohol?

    How can Ailsa Frank hypnosis help you to reduce down alcohol consumption?

    Hypnosis for reducing alcohol works by breaking the bad habits in your subconscious which is the part of your mind that stores your habits and experiences. Your drinking behaviour probably built up over time.  The exercises I will talk you through during the hypnotherapy sessions or if you are using my hypnosis downloads will reprogram your mind with positive ways to feel and behave around alcohol.  My hypnotherapy techniques will release daily stresses and your patterns of association with alcohol. This will help create a more take it or leave attitude towards drinking. After the hypnosis you'll begin to make decisions such as only drinking socially, sticking to just one or two drinks at a time, throwing alcohol away when you know you have had enough, putting the cork or lid back on the bottle. If it's good for you to stop altogether then you probably will. When you are ready to fully let go you'll find yourself making different drink choices such as having a sparkling water or a cup of tea instead of alcohol. Most people prefer to just be in control of drinking rather than stopping altogether.

    Ailsa Frank Hypnosis methods

    The messages in the hypnosis recordings or the techniques used in a one to one hypnosis phone appointment will go into the deep part of your mind to release the drinking habits. The recordings and sessions deal with drinking triggers. When listening to the recordings it is best to lie down on a bed or sofa, put the volume down low and let the messages wash over you. You will only make safe changes at a pace you are ready to let go at.  My system of hypnosis releases the layers of drinking as well as the root causes. Afterwards, people feel more relaxed and comfortable in themselves. The changes happen in a way that feels natural, for instance, you may think about having an alcoholic drink but then you may decide not to have a drink. Just in the same way when you've had too many cups of tea or coffee if someone offers you another cup you say "no" as you just don't fancy one. The same thing happens with the alcohol, after the hypnosis you find yourself having less interest in drinking alcohol.  My methods used have been tried and tested with hundreds of one to one clients and thousands of people have successfully taken back control of their drinking by listening to my alcohol hypnosis recordings.

    Before Hypnosis, Steven said "I can't keep drinking like this. It is ruining my life, career, and relationships."

    After Hypnosis Steven said "I am thinking about alcohol less. I don't automatically reach for a drink when I get home from work. I feel I have some control over my choices. I am less stressed and don't wake in the middle of the night, in fact, I am sleeping better."

  • Tips to let go of excess summer drinking

    Too much drinking this summer? Here are my tips to let go of excess summer drinking

    Summer might be a time to let your hair down with more socialising, holiday drinking or having a glass of wine in the garden but if you are struggling to keep your drinking under control my tips will give you a few pointers to change your mindset.

    Here are some tips to help you:

    1) Visualise yourself living your life without alcohol. Say 'I can be in control. I am in control. I make healthy choices.'

    2) Take a few minutes to work out what the main stresses are in your week. Stress often triggers the need to drink. Gradually work through each problem by making small changes to the way you live your life. Remember a big problem is only a series of small things which usually can be easily resolved. By sorting through the layers of stress you can begin to get back in control of your life and your drinking too.

    3) Use your phone camera to make a photo drink diary by photographing everything you drink (alcoholic and non-alcoholic). This way you will really see what you are consuming. Share the pictures with a supportive friend so that you have to face up to what you are drinking.

    You can read on my blog, click here, about a client who recently took control of alcohol with my one to one phone sessions. Joanne is a married busy mum of two who also runs a successful business. Like most people who drink regularly, alcohol habits gradually creep up over time. It is all too easy to reach for a glass of wine or a beer when the pace of life gets on top of you. For lots of busy working parents alcohol can be the glue holding your life together. Hypnotherapy deals with the stresses as well as breaking the bad habits. A one to one hypnosis session will be tailored for you to deal with any issues which you may be facing such as work pressures, family stresses or financial worries. Alternatively, you can try my hypnosis downloads which you can listen to at bedtime. Take Control of Alcohol breaks daily drinking habits whilst Stop Binge Drinking helps you get in control of bouts of excess.

    Take control of alcohol
    Reduce alcohol safely by changing the bad drinking habits in your subconscious mind. Release cravings and let go of emotional or boredom drinking. Improve sleep patterns, boost confidence to feel relaxed with less alcohol. Two short tracks to fit into your busy schedule.

  • Stop drinking stories

    Some stories from my clients who I've helped to stop drinking

    Dan's story

    I have been using "Take Control of Alcohol" to stop drinking for close to 2 weeks now and I have to say that I am very very impressed. It is still early obviously, but so far the effect has been undeniable. I also have to say that I am blown away by your ability to put me under every single time I listen. I've tried other online hypnotists before and have had mixed success. Something about your tone, cadence, and style just nuke me every time. :-) It is so easy to go under for you and I love it. I am very grateful and appreciative of this recording and I plan to buy more. I've seen some other hypnotists online with recordings like that but after experiencing you I don't think they can compare. Your newest fan.

    Carolyn's story

    I’m 62 years of age and a product of parents who grew up during the war. Consequently, when I began my singing career at age 15,  drinks during a set break was all part of the game.  I grew into it or I should say fell into it. I had made myself a promise at age 8 that I would never drink like my father.  The only time he was coherent was at 7am before he went off to work.  I never invited friends home from school for fear of what I might find.  We lived fairly well. My mother was a kindergarden teacher who I know worked very hard at keeping us all going but she drank too.  She never seemed to have a problem though.  She could turn it off after a couple.  My dad and I could not. He died at 67 after several strokes.    I’ve tried many times over the years to stop because you can only quit once. I tried AA too. I’m glad I purchased 2 of your tapes.  My youngest daughter (20 years) of my 4 children seems to have an issue that the other kids don't have.  My first husband drank a lot so perhaps the older three saw and were more resilient to what can happen when you drink to excess.  My second husband doesn’t drink at all unless I offer it to him.  He never bought me a bottle of wine, unless I asked him to. And that didn’t happen very often.  A thing he said to me some 22 years ago was, “if you’re going to drink,  do it at home where no one can see you”.  Now, what kind of advice is that!   I spent a good deal of time alone.   I knew it was time to stop drinking. Anyway suffice to say,  I believe I have a great command of my situation now thanks to you.  I’ve listened to the hypnosis downloads on my computer every night and I wake up in the morning now having to rub my eyes to get the sleep out of them.  I shall continue on this path.  I’m not promising myself that I won’t have a glass or two of wine for a special occasion, but I feel confident that after two,  I will know how to stop. Thank you because no one does it alone!

    Matt's story

    Since I bought your book I am feeling better about life. I sought help to stop drinking due to a heartbreak issue. I just want to let you know I'm still reading the book in small hits before I go to sleep at night and it's having a positive effect. I find myself in everyday situations quietly referring back to techniques in the book and it truly is changing me. My outlook is more positive and I just feel better about things. I find it helps to tell people that I'm reading your book and to tell them what I'm feeling. Some close people have noticed the change and want to borrow the book! I just tell them to go and buy their own copy!! I just wanted to let you know how I'm getting on!

    Lisa's story

    I just felt compelled to write a quick testimonial, I would never normally leave reviews or anything of the sort. However, in all honesty, the "Stop Binge Drinking for Women" download has changed my life! Haha not to sound dramatic but it has. Moderation is something I struggle with in life, be it trying to get fit, I go crazy for a fortnight and then exhaust myself and give up, likewise with food, money plans, study and of course alcohol! I wouldn't say I had a problem with alcohol as such - although my mother did worry as alcoholism runs in the family - I just binged completely. And sometimes I was a nice drunk and everything was fine but, oh god, sometimes my alter ego (we called her psycho Lisa) would make an appearance. She only made a few appearances over the years but I'm still reminded of them. As I started getting older my hangovers were steadily getting worse and worse and worse. To the point that a few hours of drunken fun that I could never remember anyway would lead to two days of illness. Not to mention the fear, depression and regret over things I may or may not have done, it was all a little blurry.

    The thing is I'm Irish! When I declared boldly on a Sunday that I was never drinking again, everyone else cheered and agreed and yet we would all be in the very same state the next Sunday, and so on! When I finally gave up drinking and even now when I meet people, they find it difficult to grasp that they have encountered a sober Irish person. It's a touch degrading still but such is our stereotype I suppose. The people that gave me the most hassle for giving up drink were actually not Irish, I think they didn't quite like the idea that I was no longer the drunken Irish friend. For a long time, they could rest easy about any mistakes they made on a night out as usually I had been drunker and had made bigger and even more ridiculous mistakes. So yes that took a while for people to grasp.

    Anyway, it all came to a head in May and I decided I was simply fed up and exhausted of being hungover, being regretful and yet still anticipating the upcoming Friday after work drinkies! I turned to the internet in hopes of a miracle. This is when I stumbled across your website, at first I dismissed it as a bit silly as if hypnotherapy would really work to stop drinking. However like I said I was desperate, it couldn't hurt, I downloaded the tracks and I have never looked back. Within a week, I was out socialising with a big group of friends I would usually feel that I needed a good few drinks to feel fun and sociable around. I had one glass of cider which I couldn't even finish. I was amazed, it must just be a fluke. Nope since that very first week, my craving for alcohol is completely gone. In the 5 and a half months since I started listening to the downloads, I've had a handful of drinks and feel fantastic!

    As I now no longer waste all my free time being hungover, I end up heading out and socialising more than I ever have. I have lost over a stone in weight, just by simply having the energy to go for a quick run and not gorging on fast food whilst hungover. I managed to save an absolute fortune, simply from not drinking and went travelling in Europe for the month of August. Life is fantastic.

    Not only has the "Stop Binge Drinking for Women" download been so helpful, I also started listening to the "Build confidence and self-esteem" download and I really really cannot thank you enough. I just feel so happy in my own skin and happy with the way my life is going. I feel like these downloads have set me free, there was always so many things I wanted to do and places I wanted to go but I was trapped in my old habits and lifestyle. Finally, I can achieve these goals whilst also maintaining a fantastic social life, I did worry that I would become a sort of hermit and not want to be around drunk people if I was going to remain sober but that has not been the case. Ok little rant over, thank you so much and all the best for the future!

    Sam's story

    I have to say this and I hope it doesn't sound over the top: Your recordings have changed my life and I am so incredibly grateful that I found your site. I am blown away by how effective your hypnosis mp3s are. No one else compares to you. I actually had so much incredible success with the alcohol stop drinking recording that I decided to buy three more sets of mp3s! I've been training myself with the weight loss for men set for about 2 weeks and the effect has been undeniable. I'm down 8 pounds and feeling leaner than I have in a long time. Next, I'll try the financial mp3 and then confidence. I just ordered a copy of your book "Cut The Crap and Feel Amazing" too as you suggested. :-)  Can't wait to receive it. Thank you!!

  • Drinking too much alcohol?

    Help! Why am I drinking too much?  

    You have probably spent your whole life surrounded by alcohol which normalises it in your mind.  Most people know family, friends or work colleagues who drink regularly. TV commercials for alcoholic drinks are regularly on television. Whilst advertisers use alcohol to promote other products such as sofa and kitchens which sometimes show someone with a glass of wine or a bottle of wine as a prop designed to sell you a lifestyle. British TV programs such as Eastenders, Emmerdale, and Coronation Street are based on people drinking in the pub. This is all building subliminal messages to your subconscious mind so it actually feels weirder not to drink alcohol than drink excessively. This is why hypnotherapy is a real solution to combat alcohol habits.

    Your drinking habits build up like layers of an onion, every time your drink you are reinforcing the behaviour which builds habits around the alcohol and the emotions you feel at the time. The drinking layers include the emotions you feel at those times;

    • Stress
    • Boredom
    • Worries
    • Concern
    • Social pressure to drink
    • Drinking for the sake of it
    • Happiness having fun
    • Celebration
    • Switching off from daily life
    • To help you get to sleep
    • Cope with financial worries

     

    Drinking alcohol also may have masked confidence issues which usually begin at an earlier age. Hypnotherapy helps build your confidence as you let go of excess drinking.

    Just as someone learns to drive a car or tie their shoelaces, once you have learned to do something it is hard to forget it. In the same way, once you have learned to drink alcohol in a certain way it is hard to change the habit. On top of this, you have the cravings to deal with as most people like the taste. You may be rewarding yourself with alcohol after a hard day and you may look forward to a drink for social enjoyment.  All of these feelings make it harder to stop drinking. This is why without re-setting your subconscious mind using hypnotherapy it can be difficult to take back control of alcohol.

    The best time to start taking back control is right now. Remember, anyone who drinks regularly can become an alcoholic. For those people who become alcoholics, it creeps up on them as they begin to rely on alcohol more and more. No alcoholic would imagine it could happen to them. It only takes a few life events to push you further to increase your drinking to out of control levels. An unexpected redundancy, a financial stress, family illness or bereavement can all play a part in increased alcohol consumption.

    My system of alcohol reduction will help you take back control, I recommend ‘Take control of alcoholfor everyday drinkers who want to break the habit and ‘Stop binge drinking for Women’ or ‘ Stop binge drinking for Men’ for those who drink bouts of excess alcohol. Or if you want one to one hypnotherapy phone appointments contact me through the website.

    Chapter 13 of my book "Cut The Crap and Feel AMAZING" covers addictions and obsessions and will help to break alcohol habits.


  • Let go of Brexit stress

    How to let go of Brexit stress or other uncertainty you may be facing

    Here are some tips to help you to be more optimistic about the future.

    1) Say to yourself "Everything happening in my life is good for me. Everything happening at this moment is good for me. Everything happening is creating a great future." Visualise a wiggly string leading you through life helping you to find everything you need along the way.

    2) Put any worries in your mind on to clouds then imagine the breeze blowing them away. Allow your feelings to pass as the clouds pass too. Repeat regularly.

    3) Visualise a time ten years from now. You are looking back at what has been a wonderful ten years.  See yourself having a happy life enjoying work, financial security, hobbies, activities, family, and friends. Imagine things have worked out amazingly well.

    Whatever your thoughts about Brexit, you may have found it stirred up uncomfortable feelings. It is important to manage those feelings rather than let them spiral into negative thinking. The above techniques will help you. I would also recommend you listen to my Release Everyday Stresses hypnosis recording which has messages to help you cope well with change. By dealing with stress it will help you to stop drinking alcohol to excess.

    Also my hypnotherapy Money-Increase Your Wealth recording is great to help you to feel good about money so that you wake up relaxed with new ideas and the confidence to earn more.  If you believe Brexit will be great for you then it will. When people listen to this one they change their spending, saving and earning habits to be better off. I gave a copy to my window cleaner who came back 6 weeks later and charged me more. The recording had given him the confidence to put his prices up although it was a little cheeky to charge me more too! Actually, I was very proud of him and it was another proof that the recording works.

    Retrain your mind with my hypnosis download "Money - Increase Your Wealth" to attract more wealth to you, use your money wisely, create success in the best way for you, progress your career, create a positive relationship with money, make the correct investment choices, release financial stress or worries. Three short tracks easy to fit into your busy schedule.

  • 4 Tips to Break Addictive Alcohol Habits

    Here are some tips to help you to take back control of your alcohol drinking and some extracts on breaking habits from my book Cut the Crap and Feel Amazing

    Cut the Crap and feel AMAZING Book Cover 1861px

    Firstly, Identify the stresses and emotions that fuel your alcohol addictions. Then deal with them to set yourself free. You need to focus on making changes that will break the bad alcohol habit. Habitually drinking alcohol creates a habit in the subconscious in the same way hypnosis forms new habits of not drinking alcohol in the subconscious. Do the following experiment to prove to yourself that it is possible to adapt to something new.

    Try this technique

    Move the rubbish bin in your kitchen. For a while, you will keep going back to the old place, but before long you will get used to the bin being somewhere else and will go to it automatically, without having to think about it. It’s the same thing with an alcohol addiction or bad habit that you want to change: you need to change the behaviour and do it over and over again until you get used to the new way of being. It works because you store the habit in your subconscious mind and, once you have reprogrammed yourself, it will become natural for you to behave in a new way. The same will happen when you change your alcohol drinking habits over time eventually the new habit will override the old one. Hypnosis for changing alcohol habits fast tracks the process.

    You invested time in learning the addictive alcohol behaviour. You need to spend time breaking the alcohol bad habits too.

    4 Tips to break bad alcohol habits

    photo_10106

    1) Saying: "I won't drink alcohol this week" and then as soon as the week starts you have a drink and decide to stop another day.

    How to break the alcohol habit:

    Make as many small changes in your day so that you break some of the familiar habits which contribute to you alcohol drinking. For example, drive a different route home, get home at a slightly different time, change the evening routine, go straight for a shower after work, have sparkling water in a wine glass instead of alcohol. Self-talk positively "I can be in control, I am in control, I am sober". Visualise yourself without an alcoholic drink, visualise yourself having a herbal tea, brushing your teeth and getting into bed totally sober, see yourself waking in the morning refreshed.

    2) Saying: "I won't get stressed" but then finding yourself do just that which leads to an alcoholic drink later that evening.

    How to break the stress fuelling alcohol habit:

    Speak positively to yourself throughout the day "I can get this done really easily, I am getting more done in less time, I am finding ways to be relaxed." When you feel yourself rushing, feeling stressed or hear the tension in your voice, consciously pull back to avoid getting caught up in the drama and say to yourself "It's all working out fine, it is all resolving AMAZINGLY well, what if this is AMAZING."  Imagine your stresses passing like clouds in the sky, let them pass. Imagine everything has worked out well. The less stressed you are the more in control of your alcohol habits you will be.

    3) Saying: "I won't spend money" and then allowing yourself to buy alcohol.

    How to break the money spent on alcohol habit:

    Imagine all the people who have less than you and instantly you will feel more wealthy. Say to yourself "I am happy with what I have, my life is AMAZING and AMAZING things happen to me".  Visualise yourself going through your week without spending money on alcohol such as avoiding the alcohol section in the shop. Imagine having more money saved each week from not buying alcohol.  Set up a savings account specifically for the money you would have spent on alcohol, with monthly payments to build up your funds. Even if you think you can't afford to save start saving you need to begin saving now. When people stop or reduce their alcohol drinking they find they have a lot more spare money. Set a goal of something healthy you would like to do such as a spa day, a flying lesson, a Ferrari track day..., build your alcohol fund to pay for it at some point in the future.

    4) Saying: "I will eat healthy foods" which you manage all day but then you get home and snack on foods which you associate with drinking alcohol.

    How to break the eating linked to alcohol habit:

    Change your routine when you get home such as having a shower then change into a comfortable tracksuit, sit in a different chair to eat your dinner and sitting on a different seat in front of the TV.  Also, move the snacks in the kitchen to another cupboard so your mind doesn't slip into old comfortable habits which may trigger alcohol habits.  Do yoga stretches whilst you watch TV also try drinking a herbal tea.  The more healthy a routine you create the less likely you will be to want an alcoholic drink. Visualise a red triangle in your mind imagine putting the cravings into the triangle and shrinking it down until they are gone.  Visualise your healthy routine without alcohol in your mind last thing at night and first thing in the morning.

    Hypnotherapy sessions or hypnosis recordings allow you to make alcohol habit breaking changes on a subconscious level. You can read more on each of the product pages of my hypnosis downloads:
