Another and also very appropriate word for autosuggestion is mental self-influence, because that is what autosuggestion is about at its core. Through autosuggestion, we can influence our thoughts, feelings and actions through the power of our thoughts alone. In this way, people gain access to their subconscious mind and thus can activate self-healing powers and positively influence the psyche. Autosuggestion means, among other things, that you recite suitable guiding sentences to yourself and suggestions are not recited by another person like by the hypnotist (suggestion). The goal of autosuggestion is, for example, to strengthen self-esteem, to improve the way you deal with problems and your fellow human beings, or to come to rest more quickly.
