You should treat the use of a hypnosis cd just like you use a tool. In other words, any tool has the potential to do a great job as long as it is used for its intended purpose. The message here is that a tool is only useful if it is used.
People who purchase a hypnosis cd want help in a specific area of their life. These areas might be stress management, alcoholic addiction, smoking, concentration, study, weight, insomnia and more. Often the hypnosis cd is being used to undo or reprogram a specific behaviour or habit. That behaviour or habit may have been in existence for many years.
In order to change that old program (behaviour) it is important to listen to the hypnosis cd on a regular basis. Although there will be people who will get instant results others will need to make a habit of tuning in to the suggestions on that hypnosis cd.
Some hypnotherapists suggest listening to a specific hypnosis recording everyday for 30 days and then to reduce the frequency to 3 or 4 times a week and then maybe twice a week. The idea behind this thought is that the suggestions contained in the hypnosis cd get compounded each and every time someone hears them. Compounding, or the repetition of the same suggestions is a therapeutic strategy that all hypnotherapists use.
So the advice is to listen to any hypnosis cd recording frequently when you first get it. Although it is not suggested that you listen to it more than once a day. You can also get around the excuse of not having the time to listen to it by playing the hypnosis cd when in bed and go to sleep to it. The beneficial suggestions will still pass to the subconscious mind even though consciously you are asleep.
