Self Hypnosis Metaphors

Gathering Resources

There are a wide range of metaphors you can use to access your internal resources for change. You can use metaphors either through visualisation, a narrative, feelings or some combination the three.


You can visit a pyramid, forest, castle, somewhere in space or any place you can imagine. When in these places you can imagine objects or beings representing obstacles and you can use other tools, companions or objects to remove them.


You can represent internal resources as hidden treasure, precious antiquities, secret books or anything else that symbolises what you need.


Try an imagined journey, discover special previously hidden gifts in a room or cupboard in your mind, meet characters for guidance. There are infinite ways of using your imagination to gather your internal resources.


Other useful techniques are "travelling in time" and the "control room".
