The process of counting DOWN is crucial in self-hypnosis. You may be asking, “Why can’t I just count from 1 to 50?” Your subconscious mind loves the principle of counting…it helps your brain zone out. And going down is soothing. It’s relaxing. Counting up is energizing. So remember, if you want to start calming your mind and body down, you’ll need to count DOWN instead of up. Give it a go…I think you’ll be surprised!
