For making a recording of your own voice to make available online, many people are currently using and recommending the free, open-source software called Audacity, which, despiite its initially formidable appearance, is as easy to operate as a $30 recorder that you could purchase at a drugstore.
All the control buttons are in the upper left-hand corner and if you mouse over them it will show you what they do. And if you have background noise or a cheap microphone and cannot afford to rent a recording studio, not to worry. Here are two brief You Tube videos on how to fancy up the presentation, once you get your recording done. The first one shows you how to make two simple adjustments using Audacity to produce major improvements in your presentation. In the second one, the same presenter shows you a few additional choice tricks. After using them, I no longer sounded like Donald Duck with tonsillitis. (Kermit the Frog, perhaps?)

|Listening to your inner healer|
You love being hypnotized! Each time you enter hypnosis, you enter it more rapidly and more deeply. Each time you enter hypnosis,, your Best Me -- the person you are becoming -- gives you more strength to work out your issues, in many different ways and on many different levels, some of which you may already be aware of, and some of which you may not yet realize until they actually happen
Now we will return from these higher realms of being to the everyday state of consciousness and the time and place from which we left.
You will obtain everything you desired from this session, regardless of whether or not it was actually included in the suggestions you were given, and regardless of whether or not you were consciously aware of all of them youtself.
Because time passes so much more slowly in hypnosis., even though you may only have been hypnotized for only a few minutes, it can seem as if we had been gone for an eternity, and the benefits you derive from the experience will be correspondingly increased.
Regardless of how much or how little you actually remember of these higher and more powerful levels of reality, you will always recall these hypnotic sessions with fondness, even as you look forward to the next opportunity to return to them with ever increasing anticipation; for you will obtain from each session everything that you hoped to get from it, regardless of whether or not it has been specifically suggested to you.
The sound of my voice will have much the same enjoyable effect as if you were in hypnosis. For this reason, whenever you can safely do so, you will be able to listen to recording of nt voice ob the computer and it will have just the same effect as if I were actually there, hypnotizing you right then.
Tonight, you will be able to fall asleep easily, and you will have a pleasant, refreshing sleep from which you will awaken rested and refreshed, and feeling wonderful; for your Best Me is always with you, guiding your path in the way it should go. Know who you really are. Be who you really are.
By the time I get to the count of five, you will be able to open your eyes, feeling wonderful. Your mind will be clear and alert. You will easily be able to concentrate on anything you have to do, and you are going to feel better than you have for a long, long time!
One. Getting ready to open your eyes now.
Three. Almost ready.
Four. . . .
Five. You can open your eyes now, feeling wonderful
