How to Listen


  • For at least one half hour prior to listening to this exercise, refrain from eating heavily, drinking alcohol, or using drugs.
  • Go to the bathroom and empty your bladder.
  • Loosen any tight clothing and remove shoes, eyeglasses, and contact lenses.
  • Adjust the volume to a low comfortable level. It is only important that you hear the words; your brain will automatically respond to the background sound.

  • Listen in a room with low light where there will be no interruptions for the duration of the exercise.
  • Have a blanket available.
  • Lie down or sit in a comfortable position. Keep your head supported.
  • If you have an itch, scratch. You will be able to easily return to your pattern of relaxation.
  • Visualize yourself doing what the words state.

  • This exercise will alter your state of consciousness. Therefore, do not listen while driving or operating heavy equipment.
