Night tape suggestions The Safe Room: You can see that in front of you is a hallway. And as you look down the hallway, you can see a door. That door is a door to a room of your own choosing, in which you will feel safe and comfortable. As we come closer to the end of the hallway, you can see the door more clearly. This door will keep out all the negative messages, the words, the behaviors, that you perceived from your world as a child, which made you feel bad about yourself. There's no room here for such negative messages. Look at the door very carefully, even the doorknob. And know that this is a room of your own choosing, in which you will feel safe, and comfortable. Early positive messages and experiences enter, but all negative messages must stay outside. And now I want you to open that
Page 6

door, and then close the door behind you. And look around that room, this safe room, that you can visit any time you wish, by just closing your eyes. Look around, and enjoy what you see there. Now I'd like you to sit, or lie down some place in that safe room, wherever you will be comfortable. And listen carefully to whatever I say to you. There is a life energy inside of you. It is unique to you. It is your life energy, not anyone else's. It is the energy from whence you came. Life energy has only one purpose, to help you reach your potential as an organism. It is protective; it is healing. And since it is healing and protective, it is therefore loving. I want you to experience that life energy of yours, by feeling a light above your head, a light from which issues warm streams of energy, warm streams of energy, that surround you like an imaginary cocoon, soft and pliable, that lets you move about, that protects you, like a cocoon. Feel that life energy also penetrating every cell of your body, surrounding you, and penetrating you. This is your life energy. It represents your true self, your natural self, your essence whatever you wish to call it. It belongs to no one but to you. It is protective; it is healing, and therefore loving. Within that life energy are no negative messages; they cannot exist there. Feel that positive life energy, coursing through every cell of your body, surrounding and protecting you. That life energy has sometimes been expressed within you, perhaps as a still inner voice, that many of us ignore; words of wisdom inside of us that we don't always listen to, but are really there to protect us. That still inner voice is a nurturing part of you. And that nurturing part is an entity, that exists because it becomes a kind of spokesman, for that life energy, for that healing energy, for that essence, which is you. That nurturing part of you is capable of healing, both mind, and body. It is capable of helping, healing those parts of you that are not happy, that don't feel good about themselves. And it is possible for that nurturing self, to seek out other parts of you, that are not happy, and help them, help them become happier, help them become more worthwhile in their own eyes, and most of all, help them to feel loved from the inside, not from the outside world. To help this process, it is worthwhile for you to think about that nurturing part within you, and perhaps to visualize that process going on, as you go about your daily business. Visualize the process of that nurturing part helping out those, that are not so happy inside, in a way that comes naturally to you, in your mind's eye. And as you continue to do this, thinking about the nurturing part, you will stimulate that
Page 7

aspect of you, and it will become stronger within you. As you go to sleep tonight, you will have a healing dream, a healing dream to heal mind, body and spirit. And that healing, nurturing part will know, what you need in a healing dream. And that healing dream will not only have an effect tonight in your dream, but will affect you during the day as time goes by. And as healing progresses, you will come to feel better about yourself, stronger, more self-condent, and therefore happier. And when you feel happier and better about yourself, the world will respond to you in more positive ways. And now, in a moment I'm going to sign off, and you will nd that you will drift into a natural sleep pattern, and when you awaken in the morning, you will be aroused just naturally from this sleep pattern. The Serenity Place Now, as you continue to relax, more and more deeply, just allow yourself to oat across time and space. And in a moment, your unconscious mind is going to suddenly take you, to a very special place, that's associated with tremendous feelings of peacefulness, and tranquility, and safety, and happiness. It may be a place you've been before, or some special place that you nd yourself in for the rst time. And you can just allow such a place to spontaneously come into your awareness now. And as you nd yourself there, give yourself the opportunity, to experience all the refreshing feelings of calm, and contentment, and security, and happiness, associated with this wonderful place. And I'm not really sure whether you'd rather just sit and rest back, and look at everything around you, or if you'd rather walk around some, and explore this special place, that's here right now, just for you. And I don't know for sure, the things that will stand out most for youwhether it will be the sounds in this special place, or the beauty of it. Perhaps you'll especially enjoy the sensations and feelings as you touch things, and maybe even the smells will be unusually pleasant. And I wonder if you've already begun to notice the fact, that as you just experience, and enjoy this special place, you soak up and absorb these tranquil feelings. And you can just allow these feelings of deep contentment, and peace, and calm, to ow, all through you, to all parts of you, allowing all of you to experience these soothing feelings. And as each moment passes in this special place, these wonderful, invigorating feelings increase, and become more a part of you. And you can savor this place, and your enjoyment of it can be heightened, with every moment
Page 8

that you spend here. And as you rest here, and recharge your batteries, this experience may remind you of other places and experiences, where you've felt happy, and contented, and lled with peaceful feelings. And in this place of serenity and security, things can come into perspective. You can be aware of actual feelings, with a correct sense of proportion, free from the distortions of a mood or set of circumstances. As you rest in this place, things come into proper perspective. And in this special place, independent of anything that I say, you can receive what you most need right now. Your unconscious mind knows what you most need. And I don't know exactly how you'll receive that. It may be that you gain a new perspective, or just nd yourself feeling differently. Or maybe, before awakening, you'll receive from your unconscious, a special gift, of an experience or a memory that gives you the understanding or the perspective or the feelings that you most need right now. Or perhaps, you may hear, what you need. It may be that you hear a still voice, maybe a voice in your mind, or seeming to come from deep inside you, saying what you most need to hear, giving you the suggestions you most need to receive right now. And in a moment now, I'm going to stop talking. And you can remain in this special place of yours, for as long as you need. You can remain in this place of contentment, and happiness, and tranquility, for as long as you need, recharging your batteries, and soaking up these feelings, receiving what you need. And there's something that's going to be embedded and remain in your mind: you will know, that you can return to this special place of yours, whenever you need or want to. You will know, that whenever you need to rest, or replenish your strength and energy, that you can put yourself into a deep and peaceful hypnotic state, and return to this place. And when you're ready to awaken, you can drift back across time and space, bringing these wonderful feelings, and this sense of perspective with you. And you'll awaken feeling well; refreshed, alert and clear-headed. And what you have experienced can remain with you, after you have awakened. Now, as I stop speaking, you can continue in this place, receiving what you need, for as long as you like. I know you have a conscious memory of what you have experienced and learned, but your unconscious mind has a much more complete record of everything that you have ever learned or experienced of any signicance since you were born. I want to ask your unconscious mind to review all of that material, and it can do that much more quickly and completely than you could do it consciously. Review all of your learning and
Page 9

experiences; scan all of them and select only positive experiences and feelings. Review them, and strengthen them, and begin to make them available to you as your inner strength to cope with whatever you need to cope with now. And although you won't be aware of most of this consciously, it will be going on beneath the surface, just as your unconscious mind works on problems and continues to operate beneath your awareness most of the time. Perhaps you will be more aware of some of this, a small sample of it surfacing into your conscious awareness perhaps an experience, a positive experience, that gives you a good feeling. It may be one that happened last week, last month, last year, or many years ago, but the thought of it makes you feel good about yourself. Then, perhaps occasionally a good feeling will surface, just a positive feeling, a feeling perhaps of being secure, condent, happy; or perhaps this feeling may be unattached to any particular experience, just a good feeling and you can enjoy it again, a feeling of inner strength. You'll begin to feel much better about yourself, and you will have the inner strength it requires to pursue some positive strategies that we have talked about, and where some of these may have been threatening before, now they will represent a challenge to you, and you will feel positive about taking a bit of a risk in meeting this challenge, and feeling good about it. Condence Building - The Cloud Visualize a normal white, soft, uffy cloud hovering over your head into which you will be able to place all the reasons, direct and indirect, which you think have contributed to your lack of condence. These reasons are the unconscious "computer" programs which are maintaining your unwanted behavior. Thus, they need to be erased. Let your mind drift in a pleasantly relaxed way and, whenever any reason for your lack of condence, no matter how trivial, comes into your mind, put it into the cloud. As you do so, your unconscious mind will put in other reasons of which you are unaware, causing the cloud to become increasingly dark. When you have put in every reason you are able to think of, it will be inky black. Look at the black cloud containing all these negative programs and, as you do so, somewhere behind it you will see a source of light. At rst quite dim, it will become increasingly bright. That light is really a sun, the sun of your own desire to be free of everything that has been preventing you from living life to its fullest. The light grows stronger and brighter until it begins to burn away the black
Page 10

cloud. As this is happening, you will become increasingly aware of the warmth of the sun so that, as the cloud burns away completely, leaving no trace of either cloud or anything it contained, you will be able to bask in this warmth, feeling the sun's rays penetrating every cell of your body, bringing a wonderful sense of self-assurance and self-condence. Condence Building - The Pyramid Imagine yourself back in ancient Egypt, standing in the desert before the cave-like entrance to a large pyramid. As you enter, you nd yourself in a downward sloping passageway, well lit with torches. Feeling a sense of security and condence, you follow this passageway as it takes you deeper and deeper into the heart of the pyramid. At the very end of the passage is a vast storeroom lled with treasures of all descriptions. This is the storehouse of all the vast untapped resources, all the potential for good and for achievement, which you have not yet turned to your advantage. All of this treasure is rightfully yours, for it has been stolen from you through force of circumstance. However, unless you carry it back into the world outside to enjoy and to share with others, it will eventually be sealed up within the room and lost forever. Naturally, you attempt to gather this treasure, for it is rightfully yours. Yet, you cannot. Some force is preventing you, a force emanating from a huge black statue in the center of the room. This statue, powered by a brilliant jewel embedded in its forehead, is the embodiment of all the negative forces of failure and defeat within you. It has been placed in the room as the guardian of the treasure, making all other guardians unnecessary. To free this vast storehouse of your potential so that you can become the person you are capable of being, you must rst overcome the negative tendencies, the forces of failure and defeat, within you which are acting to prevent this, these tendencies being personied and embodied in the guardian statue. Go to the statue and knock the jewel from its forehead. As it lies on the ground, its lustre fades, so that it looks dark and ugly like a piece of coal. This can be stepped upon and crushed into black dust. Its power gone, the statue may then be pushed so that it falls and breaks into many pieces. You are now free to gather up as many of the treasures as can be carried, taking it with you as you retrace your steps up the passage to the entrance. There is no need to attempt to take all the treasure, for you will be able to return to this treasure room whenever you want to. No matter how much you may take, or how many times you
Page 11

return, the room will never be empty. Step outside into the warm sunshine, and return to the world of our everyday life with the treasures you have gathered. These treasures, which can be anything you want them to be, will reveal themselves in new habits, new ideas, and new directions. On any occasion when you feel a lack of condence in your ability to do something, think of the pyramid and the treasures it contains. As you do, you will feel a sense of condence, strength,and power surging through you, lling you with the certainty that you are capable of accomplishing the task about which you were doubtful. Condence Building - The Lake See yourself standing on the shore of a lake, looking out over the water. Where you stand, it is a dreary and depressing scene, the water rough and treacherous, whipped into waves by wind and rain. Yet, the other side of the lake is quite different, with people enjoying the bright sunshine and lively atmosphere. This is the shore of health and normality. Visualize yourself crossing the lake in some way that requires considerable effort. Rowing a boat, paddling a canoe, or even swimming would be possibilities. Not only are the waves and wind to be combatted. Other obstacles will attempt to impede your progress from the shore of dreariness to the shore of brightness, but these you overcome. If the distance seems too great, or your efforts are exhausting, you can use the islands dotting the surface of the lake as temporary resting places. When you nally reach the bright shore, as you will, you feel a tremendous surge of condence, a belief in your ability to live your life as you want to, coping effectively and happily with whatever your environment provides. Increasing Determination: The Snowball Picture yourself standing at the top of a tall snow-covered mountain, looking down into a valley below. In this valley is the place you have been attempting to reach. Though your journey has brought you as far as this mountaintop, further progress towards your objective is blocked, for all along the mountainside are numerous barriers and obstacles. These represent everything standing between you and the attainment of your goals. Bend down and pick up a handful of snow. Examine this. You will nd it to be soft and powdery, comparable, in a way, to your own determination which has, at times, lacked rmness and strength. Add more snow, packing it more tightly in your hands, compressing it into a
Page 12

snowball which is rm, round, and hard. As you do so, feel your own assertiveness and determination becoming stronger and rmer too, as hard and as rm as the snowball being prepared for its trip down the mountainside. Walk over to a very steep incline at the side of the mountain and gently roll the snowball down it, straight at the obstacles below. Quite slowly the snowball rolls down the mountainside, growing in size as it does so, until it attains the proportions of a large boulder. It then becomes an avalanche, sweeping everything before it as it continues on its journey to the bottom. The way is now clear. As all obstacles have been swept away, you can begin to descend the mountainside where your courage and determination have gone before to clear a path. As you imagine yourself striding purposefully down the mountain, you will know that, in your own mind, your determination is continuing to grow, as did the snowball, until it will become sufciently strong to sweep away every obstacle in its path. You will then be able to attain whatever goals in life you have set, just as easily as you can now imagine yourself descending that mountainside. Stein's Clenched Fist Technique Now I want your unconscious mind to search through your memories and identify a time when you felt (e.g., condent, happy, peaceful and calm, healthy, needed, accepted, competent, strong). Just allow your inner mind to identify a time when you felt (e.g., condent, happy, peaceful and calm, healthy, needed, accepted, competent, strong), no matter how brief the experience, or how long ago, and no matter how intimate or personal the experience, because it isn't necessary to tell me anything about it if you don't want to. And when your unconscious mind has identied that experience, just allow your "yes" nger to oat up. Good. Now I'd like your unconscious mind to take you back through time to that experience. Just allow yourself to drift back to that experience, and when you are there, allow your "yes" nger to oat up again. Good. And as you enjoy that experience again, you can begin to sense those feelings associated with it feelings of (e.g., condent, happy, peaceful and calm, healthy, needed, accepted, competent, strong).And when you're aware of experiencing those feelings again, allow your "yes" nger to oat up to signal me. That's right. And notice how those feelings get stronger, as you enjoy that experience again, in complete privacy. And now as you feel these feelings, I'd like you to close your dominant hand into a tight st, and as you
Page 13

do so, these positive feelings become even stronger. That's right, just close your dominant hand into a tight st, as a sign and symbol of condence and determination. This is the hand that you trust and depend on. And as you clench it tightly, feel the feelings of (e.g., condent, happy, peaceful and calm, healthy, needed, accepted, competent, strong) becoming even stronger. And when you're aware of feeling those feelings even more strongly, just nod your head to let me know. That's right, and just continue enjoying that experience, and these good feelings, allowing them to ll you, and to ow all through you. And as you continue experiencing these feelings, take several deep, refreshing breaths, while your unconscious mind memorizes, all of these wonderful feelings. Because in the future, whenever you close your dominant hand into a tight st like this, you will feel once again, these feelings of (e.g., condent, happy, peaceful and calm, healthy, needed, accepted, competent, strong), owing back over you and lling you. Whenever you want to experience these feelings again, all you need to do is clench your dominant hand into a st, and this same kind of memory and feelings, will come back into your experience. And now you can feel pleased, and feel a sense of condence in knowing, that you have learned a method for recapturing these feelings, whenever you need them. Your unconscious mind has memorized these feelings, these experiences, and they will remain just beneath the surface, as inner resources. And because of this conditioning, they will be readily available, whenever you need them. All that you'll need to do is to clench your right hand into a st, as these memories, and positive feelings, wash back over you. And I'd like you to demonstrate this for yourself now. In a moment, I want you to squeeze that right hand into a condent st. And as you do so, notice, just notice how one of these same wonderful memories, and these same feelings, come back into your experience. Go ahead. And enjoy this experience. And the stronger you clench that st, the more vivid the feelings become, do they not? And I'd like you to appreciate, your own ability, to recapture these feelings, whenever you wish, knowing that they are always there, just beneath the surface for you. Now allow that st to relax, and allow yourself to drift into an even sounder, and deeper hypnotic state. And now you're going to have an opportunity, to learn another method, which will allow you to even more effectively neutralize the feelings of negativeness, and replace them with feelings of (e.g., condent, happy,
Page 14

peaceful and calm, healthy, needed, accepted, competent, strong). In a moment, I'd like you to permit yourself to remember an unpleasant experience, that made you feel negative. It doesn't have to be so unpleasant that it makes you miserable. I don't want you to be that uncomfortable. But allow just enough of an unpleasant memory to come back, so that you begin to feel some of those feelings of negativeness. And when you're experiencing some of those unpleasant feelings, signal me with your "yes" nger. All right. And now I want you to enjoy discovering something, very interesting. I want you to notice, how these negative feelings can be transferred and displaced, into your non dominant left hand, as you close it into a st. Close your (left) hand into a st, and as you do so, be aware of how those unpleasant feelings and sensations funnel down, through your shoulder, your arm, your forearm, down into your left st. Allow all those unpleasant feelings and sensations, those negative emotional and physical knots, to ow down into your left hand st, condensing and concentrating there. Lock them up tightly in that st, keeping them there until you're reasonably sure that all of them, or the majority of them, are in that st, where you yourself have displaced and transferred them. You may not always be able to keep unpleasant feelings from appearing in your mind or body, but you'll be able to transfer them into your left hand st, where you can control them. And when it feels as if all those unpleasant feelings, are collected into that st, just nod your head to signal me. Good. Now, since you're the one who put those feelings into that left st, you're the person who can remove and neutralize them. And I want you to observe how easy it is, to get rid of those feelings, and replace them with positive feelings. I want you to squeeze your right hand into a strong, condent, happy st. And as you do so, allow your left hand to relax, letting go of all those unpleasant feelings. That's right. Just move those ngers around, allowing all those unpleasant feelings to ow out of your hand, as if they were just evaporating, or falling onto the oor. And you'll discover that the unhappy memory disappears, and is replaced by a positive one. And you can enjoy that happy memory again, in complete privacy, with that happy st tightly closed, as a symbol of condence, and strength, and determination. Enjoy taking several extra deep, relaxing breaths, as you just luxuriate in these positive feelings for a while. And these good feelings will remain with you, far longer than you might expect. You now have a method for controlling your own feelings, and for creating this

same sense of well-being, whenever you need to. So whenever you feel (negative feelings), just close your (non dominant) hand into a st. As you do so, you'll feel all those unpleasant feelings and sensations owing, and funneling, and concentrating into your left hand. And after a short time, when it feels as though all those unpleasant feelings are locked up in that hand, then you can neutralize them. You can get rid of them, and then replace them with positive feelings, by simply squeezing your right hand into a tight st, while you open your left hand, and let go of all the unpleasant feelings and sensations. And I want you to really enjoy, all the positive feelings, and wonderful memories that ow over you, and that will increase, the tighter you squeeze that right hand st. And after a minute of two of clenching that st, you'll discover that those pleasant, good feelings, will remain with you. Almost as if, by clenching that right hand st, you've infused your whole being with so many, good feelings, with so much of those natural endorphin substances from your brain, that for a long time, there's just nothing to bother you, and nothing to disturb you.
