    So I have somewhat my accident (by definition not by accident anymore) been making use of the techniques of autosuggestion. I don't really fully trust myself to try to dream with it yet, but I figured it would be of interest to the people in this subforum

    Looking this up, it seems along the lines of Affirmations and repeated use of positive thoughts to bring about a change of behavior.

    I am sure this works for many. Maybe it is a way to reprogram oneself, but personally, I have never found this to be an effective tool with me ;) Seems my bad habits are too ingrained.

    I'd say that is an accurate description of the more mild (perhaps healthier) side of this concept. The deeper end seems to be much closer to the concept of hypnotism.

    If I may, why beat around the bush, what techniques have you been using, and what do you think about them?

    Honestly, I'm just waiting to hear Sheliawhisz's thoughts, because she has a lot more experience with this than me. I'm not going to bother to rush her though

    Well, I see Sheila on fairly often so maybe she will....but, if you are going to start a thread of Autosuggestion, why post it in such a way that it requires another to present to topic? I'd like to know what it meant to you and how? Since you have the first hand experience. Maybe there is something of value to be learned. If it is something that can be helpful to others, your experience would be useful to know.

    One of the things I seem to have autosuggested to myself is a trust of the Socratic Method
