Thus, self-suggestion is the suggestion by the subject of his consciousness of ideas, attitudes, different thoughts and feelings. Self-expression of a person can be embodied with the help of autogenous training, which is an independent reading (either self-explanatory or out loud) or pronouncing certain words and sentences with the purpose of influencing one's own personality.

The regular reproduction of settings for the subconscious is the power of autosuggestion.
Suggestions for auto-suggestion should be pronouncedmentally in an imperative tone from the first person in affirmative form. Negative meaning or negative particle "not" in the formulas of autosuggestion are prohibited. If the subject, for example, seeks to quit smoking using the formula of auto-suggestion, then instead of saying "I do not smoke", you should say "I quit smoking". Also it is not recommended to say long monologues. The settings should be short, and they should be spoken slowly, focusing on the object of suggestion.
