    you can get better at self hypnosis and meditation by practicing but not wanting it too much.
    there is a great course about self hypnosis (link below)
    what about some recorded tapes for whatever subject you want?

    Self-hypnosis and meditation are skills that get better with time, like riding a bicycle. Intuitively, I feel you are pushing yourself a little too much to “go deep.” Lighten up around the subject and also remember that you can start with just 5 minutes once or twice a day. When that becomes easy, increase to time to 8 or 10 minutes. Later on, when you are ready, practice more.

    In the beginning, it helps to use guided meditations or hypnosis CDs. You can find them cheap on eBay or google for them. Maybe the link the other answerer suggested is good.

    Over a thousand years ago, a book was written in India detailing over 100 forms of meditation! What works best for one person may not work so well for someone else. Find a form of meditation that feels right to you. A great book on all these forms of meditation is

    In general, some people visualize easily and can picture themselves in a relaxing environment. Tibetan Buddhists visualize themselves as forms of the Buddha or other deities.

    Some people meditate best by using a sound like a mantra. Other folks are body oriented and can meditate on the breath or other body sensations.

    I can’t go into self-hypnosis, except to say it is similar to meditation. It involves physical and mental relaxation and usually focuses on peaceful visual images. Best of luck to you.

    EDIT: I recommend the site for great hypnosis CDs.

    First — do not confuse self-hypnosis with meditation. They are two different things.

    I can answer about meditation. The main thing — do not try to achieve any particular effect (like a deeper relaxation). Practice the technique, and accept whatever happens.

    One meditation technique is called gibberish. Make all kinds of sounds, as long as they are not a real language. Pretend you are talking in a language no one knows. Make loud sounds, soft sounds, angry sounds, sad sounds, just create any non-word sounds you like. Really get into it! And move your body around too.

    After five or ten minutes, stop, and sit silently for five minutes, becoming aware of your thoughts, feelings, or sensations. Just watch. Do not try to change or fix anything. Do not try to stop the mind. Love yourself, and accept whatever happens from your heart.

    Do this every morning for a few months, and things will start to happen.

    when i first started medatation i found it dificult to
    and these other guys are right if you try to hard you will never get into a true medetative state but there is are several realy good forms including mantra (the repetistion of sylobles) physical stimulus, visual stimulus and hundreds of other ways to get into a true metatitive trance one that works best for me is called tree meditation (do not confuse with the yoga move of the same name) clear your mind and put your breathing into a rythmic pattern 7 5 works good for most meaning inhale for a count of seven and exhale for a count of 5 now imagine yourself in a clearing (let all your senses belive that you are in that clearing) feel the breeze that is blowing acrost your face feel the sun shin down on you feel the rough bark of the tree at you back
    then start to feel yourself absorbing into the tree feel how the sun reacts with your leaves and feel the earth through your roots feel the energy flowing through you from the top of the tree down to the very ends of the roots after a few minutes let your self become aware of your breathing again clear you mind and slowly open your eyes

    dont worry if you cant get it the first few times just keep practicing and eventualy you will get there

    anouther good medatative extorsize is to just see how long you can keep your mind blank try to think of nothing for as long as you can just that act in itself can make your whole day better
