Script for finding the purpose of life

Leave the past behind and find your life's purpose

What is life? What is the purpose of life? This free hypnosis script uses a hypnotic metaphor for letting go of the past, to visualize the past as something you can change and give meaning to your life. The metaphor reconnects to the good parts of your life, wipes out the bad memories, and lets you find meaning in what happened, find the purpose of your life.
The basic metaphor concept is a corridor of rooms full of memories. Some rooms have happy memories and some have bad memories. The script works to show you the purpose of life and shut off the bad memories. The script uses hypnotic words and phrases to aid the subconscious mind in letting go the past.

  I once had an old friend who liked to go for walks... walks around town... walks in the country... walks by the shore...and no matter where you are... my friend said... you can always find a pleasant walk .... I Dissociation
Memory And I wonder if you can remember a time...when you went for a walk ... somewhere nice... just for relaxation... maybe by a river... or in the country... or it could be a park or somewhere like that   Invoke memories of relaxation
Memory and maybe if you closed your eyes you can remember how pleasant it is... enjoying that feeling you get ...when you are amongst trees and grass and things you like... and far away from things that might disturb you... I Time congruency
Memory ... people remember different things... the breeze in your hair... the swish of your clothes as you walk ... the warm sun on your face... maybe the feel of soft earth under your feet... the smell of new cut grass or country air... sounds of the outdoors... freedom... times like that can make you feel so good...   using all the modalities

Truism
  and maybe if you take a deep breath now you can feel that feeling... that relaxation... now... as you breathe out...   Breathing = relaxing
  and with each gentle breath out you might like to wonder how relaxed you can become... and you might be feeling that relaxation starting... and spreading...   Breathing induction
  and sometimes in times like that you find your mind drifting away... I Dissociation
  to some place away from here... and you find yourself on a gravel path... and you can feel the gravel crunching under your feet... you can hear each step... as you go along comfortably... wondering where this path might take you... and all around there's sunshine... trees... flowers... everything is calm ... and there's a sense of quiet and expectancy...   Seeding 'comfortable'
  and the path goes along and down into a dell... you have to go down a number of steps... and each step takes you down... deeper and deeper... you go down each step... and counting... Five... deeper and deeper... Four... deeper and more relaxed... three... deeper and deeper... Two... so relaxed... One.... maybe more relaxed than you have ever been in your whole life...   Countdown deepener
 
Changing the past
   
  and then you find yourself in a large... grassy area... a dell... it's quiet... and up ahead you can see a small building...    
  it looks welcoming... and you continue across the grass... and you become aware of your feet... making footprints in the dew... Everything seems fresh, clean , new... You walk up to the building... It's a very old fashioned style... almost like something out of a an old book... and right in the middle is a door... and you look at that door ... and wonder... where it might lead... and you reach out your hand and you turn the handle in that door... you push it open and it swings open soundlessly... and there... to your surprise... the door opens on to a long corridor...   footprints = the trace of where you came from
  it’s amazing such a small building has such a long corridor... you realize that there is something special about this building... and you realize there is something you haven't seen before... above the door some writing has been carved into it... and you go forward into that corridor... and away in the distance... at the end of the corridor...you can see another door... that door is brightly lit and looks welcoming...    
  and along each side of the corridor there are many doors... and each of those doors is open just a crack... just a little... and as you go along that corridor... you look at each door...and you stop in front of the door.... and you bend your head... and you listen... and you realize that each of those doors... opens into an area of your life... starting from your very earliest years... going up and up and up... through each stage of your life... and you realize that if you listen closely... you can hear people talking... or there might be a scent... a col our... a feeling... something that reminds you so strongly... of that time and place... of that situation... of what is going on now behind that door...   Locate a memory
  and each of those doors... if you want to... will open on to a situation... and if it is a pleasant situation you can go through that door... and get in contact with it and enjoy it... almost as if you were there again.... and if it is not... then you can put your hand on the handle of that door... and pull it closed... and lock it.    
  And what you can do now... standing at the entrance of that corridor... and all those doors there... you can go along... examine all the doors on the left and the doors on the right... and pause in front of each door... and determine whether that door ... opens on to a situation... which is pleasant... or one that you would rather forget about...    
RULE because you know... you don't have to remember everything... there are things you can choose to forget... and there are things you can choose to remember...    
Memory and many good things happened in your young life... that maybe you haven't had time recently to think about... but they are there... and they are there for you to enjoy... and maybe you might want to make a game of deciding each day what good things you want to remember that day...and what you will reserve for the next day...   Connecting to and strengthening good resources
  and the people in your life... Well, they had problems at times... and sometimes they didn't behave so well... but deep down they tried... maybe in their own way... but they did love you... as much as they were able to at the time....and while it might seem that some people only had bad points... the reality is that they had good points too... It's something you can think about...   Reframe
  they gave you memories... that maybe you couldn't deal with at the time... but you can reconsider them now... things can seem different when you look at them from another perspective... from the outside... and you can choose how you want deal with them...    
  and you can start at the beginning... and look up that corridor... to that bright door at the end... and begin to pass through all the stages of your life... and go along ... and for each door... put your hand on the door... and open the door a little wider... and determine whether that is a happy situation that you want to keep....  or one you'd rather not have around any more...    
  and if it is a pleasant happy situation for you... you can go in there... see yourself at that age... and enjoy all the feeling you have, those wonderful young feelings of joy and spontaneity -- parties... dressing up... playing games... with friends... reading... whatever you really enjoyed... the times when you learned and enjoyed being young...    
  and for the other doors you can put your hand on the handle... keep still... and become aware in what ever way is best for you... of what is going on in that room... and if it is not something you want to know about... if it is something best discarded and forgotten... you can pull the door closed... and it will lock... and you are protected from that... and you never have to feel those feelings again...    
  and as you pull that door shut... you hear the click of the lock... and a huge bolt slides across... and that door changes... it begins to darken... and it begins to fade... and it becomes indistinct... shrinks... merges with the wall... so can't tell if it was even there... and that door fades right out of memory... when you look back that entire door has disappeared... there is nothing there now but a blank wall...   visualization
  so you take a bit of time now... all the time you need... you go along that corridor...  pausing in front of each door on the left and on the right... or the right and on the left... becoming aware of what it going on behind each door... and deciding whether you want to spend a little time in there... maybe to enjoy those old feelings... to remind yourself of the all good times... or whether it is a particular situation where you will close and lock the door... and move on quickly... and leave that behind...   Process the memories
  so when you are ready to do that I would like you to signal to me by raising a finger or a thumb or maybe a hand or some other way and that will let me know that you are ready to go on... and then when you have dealt with all those doors... and are standing in front of that last door... facing into the corridor... you can give me another signal... so let me know now if you are ready to examine those doors... to decide what to either close them for ever or enter and enjoy the delights within... and forgetting things that are not happy. D Ideomotor signal
  [Await signal]    
  Thank you I see that.    
  Now take whatever time you need... and acquaint yourself with all the positive things that happened in your young life... and decide what things you want to leave behind... and when you have done that you can signal to me again... and we will continue...    
  [Await signal]    
  Thank you... I see that... you have done some very good work today... All those doors that you have closed and locked... the feelings that were in those rooms will never bother you again... and all those doors where you opened and went in and enjoyed the situation... all those good feelings will be available to you... today and tomorrow and whenever you need them... whenever you need to be reminded that you have so many good things to think about... to remember...    

 

 

LIfe's Purpose VISUALIZATION

 
You CAN SEE your own FUTURE
   
  And there is one door left, and that is the door which is right at the end of the corridor... that's the door that you open to go away from this place... but it is a very special door...  I would like you to look at that door... really look at it...    
  And tell me, what colour is that door?   Depth Test
  Red.    
  OK. and does it look easy to open?   Safety Test
  Yes.    
  And do think it opens away from you or towards you? I  
  Towards.    
  And can you go through that door? I Safety check
  Yes.    
  It opens towards you...and you know, that's a very special door... and it is easy to open...    
  and behind that door, that special door..., is something you may not be aware of ... behind that door is... bliss...   Build expectation
Capability Now bliss is a very special thing... bliss is not just the absence of problems or feeling OK. Bliss is the positive feeling of joy of life... of total well being... Bliss is what you think you deserve from life... it is the purpose of your life. Now I don't know what bliss means to you... but your own mind knows what bliss means to you... life's purpose for you... you have been thinking about it... longing for it ... all your life...   Define the concept
  and you may be surprised when you open that door... and realize what is on the other side... exactly what lies behind that door... but when you open that door you will be opening up a vision, an experience, a real is at ion of what it is that you really want, what represents bliss for you... it may be something very specific... it may be something unformed and difficult to define... I don't know...   Prime the mind for a revelation
  [pause]   Give the client time to think about what bliss might be...
  but your mind knows and is eager to show it... your mind will allow you to become aware of it after you step through that door... D Permission to access it
  and you will go through that door... now... step boldly forward now... become aware of that bliss... and I don't know what your mind has revealed to you... but you can enjoy that right now... and what your mind has revealed to you now is what you are going to be working towards for the rest of your life... it is something that is for you... something good... and you can be glad of it...    
  [pause]   Give time to experience it
  but now is not the time to be in that room... that room is for learning.... so now I want you to look at the back wall of that room and you will find another door...  on the other side... is the way out...   Do not leave the client in the bliss room
   when you see that door you go towards it... and push it open and when you push it open NOW you are on the outside... you  are back in that grassy dell... you can feel the sunshine on your face and you can also feel a strange sense of freedom... a sense that in that building you have gained something wonderful and you have also left behind things that no longer matter... and you will be taking with you all those good things and the message of that vision of bliss...    
  and so now you walk back across that dewy grass... it's been a remarkably short period of time you can still see your footsteps on that grass... I see your footsteps = remember
  and now you walk back up to those steps... and you go up those steps... and each step brings you a little more aware... a little more awake... One... two... beginning to get feeling back in your arms and legs... Three getting ready for a deep breath and a maybe a stretch... Four eyelids fluttering... coming back to the present... FIVE wide awake... welcome back.   Reorientation

 

 

 

This hypnotic metaphor is a way to allow the mind to forget past hurts, to learn the purpose of life and move on. It allows the mind to symbolically let go of things that happened in the past and turns the attention to the future. The subconscious mind knows what it wants but sometimes old fears and feelings prevent the person knowing what their goal is. The Bliss part of this hypnotic script lets the mind learn the purpose of life by offering a vision of the future. Not everyone sees their own purpose but those who do are usually surprised at what it is that they really want from life.
