Can I become more suggestible?

I use suggestions I give myself before sleep to a) remember my dreams and b) induce lucid dreams. Some lucid dreaming induction techniques work on the basis of planting a suggestion, but they don't seem to have much effect on me.

Is there anything I can do to increase my susceptibility to hypnotic suggestion?

I'm also planning to do a past life regression at some point (which costs a lot!) and would like to prime myself to be more open to the therapist's suggestions.

Does having a regular meditation practice help?

Looking forward to hearing your suggestions.

Hi Delina,
I also had a hard time in the beginning. Just keep trying and telling yourself it is going to happen believe it you could also drink mint tea before bed this helps with lucid dreams. Ask you guides to help you. I meditate every day and this also helps. Later this year I will be going to a Life Between Life session and will be practicing past lives from a mp3. Set a dream diary by your bed and write a question to your guides, when awakening write your dream down we tend to forget quickly if we don’t write these down. Once this works keep doing it. Practice makes perfect and nothing comes easy work on it, be it, live it and it will manifest in your life.
Love Joe

Hi Joe,
I had one amazing lucid dream already so yeah, I know it's possible! I do keep a dream journal and record dreams I remember right away.

The question was about suggestibility. A lot of the techniques rely on the idea that you will suggest something to your subconscious, and these techniques don't seem to work for me. I'd like to increase my susceptibility to hypnotic suggestion in general. Lucid dreaming was just one reason why.

Regarding suggestibility, I recommend that you focus on the issue of trust: in yourself, your Higher Self and your hypnotist. As a trained hypnotist myself, I know that full and complete relaxation is vital to a deep hypnosis - and that in turn is partially (but not totally) dependent on trust. If you are worried from the beginning by thoughts such as "What will the hypnotist say to me when in trance?" then your critical factor (please Google if you do not know that phrase) will make your hypnosis much more difficult, even impossible. Trust is essential.

Some affirmations might help. Prior to meditation or self hypnosis, repeat "I trust myself, my Higher Self totally, with complete openness. I will listen to my inner voice". Prior to any visit to a hypnotist, similar affirmations might help: "I have complete and total trust in the hypnotist to help me access previous lives".

However, regarding going for a past life regression session, I repeat the word of caution which I posted on another thread. See:
http://www.spiritualforums.com/vb/sh...39&postcount=6 Do not hesitate to question your hypnotist about whether s/he personally believes in past lives. If you get an equivocal answer, such as "It doesn't matter what I think", then choose someone else who clearly says, "Yes".

Every best wish to you!

Thanks, LPC. Trust does sound like a good thing to focus on.
