Weight Loss With Hypnosis
I was so motivated to write this article after viewing yet another senseless ad about that monster we call weight loss and inform as many people as possible of the safe, natural effective process of weight loss with hypnosis. It will help you to know I have worked with thousands of people from all walks of life to assist them to their weight loss goal using hypnosis. This was after America watched me help a pastry chef lose 40 pounds with no struggle whatsoever during the Dateline NBC show The Ultimate Diet Challenge.
There is one problem with that word diet when it comes to using hypnosis, and that is you don’t diet at all. The big secret or key to it all is to be able to change your way of thinking, feeling and behaving about food and create a healthy lifestyle that will allow your body to shed fat (what we really mean when we say lose weight) and look and feel better as well as be healthier and happier and live not only longer but have better quality of life during those living years.
Just imagine what it would be like if you just didn’t want to eat junk food and fat causing food. Imagine just seeming to want to stop eating once your natural signal for hunger was satisfied. Wouldn’t that be better than the struggle and constant nagging thought about your weight? It sure is and you too can make it happen when achieving weight loss with hypnosis. This might be the time I remove a few myths for you regarding hypnosis.
1) Guided imagery, visualization and any other form of positive thought is actually hypnosis.
2) There are only 4 brain wave levels – thinking, daydreaming, dreaming and unconsciousness. The state of daydreaming and dreaming are where we are when we are in what is referred to as the hypnotic state.
3) The word hypnosis was first coined in a book in 1843 by Dr. James Braid because people who were in the hypnotic state appeared to be sleeping and the Greek God of sleep is Hypnos.
You see, there is nothing strange or weird about hypnosis. It’s just a word for what we do all day. Any time you are spaced out or zoned out or get startled, you were in a light trance. And in that state you are more open to suggestion. Maybe you now understand why advertising works.
But back to weight loss with hypnosis; just like an athlete using visualization to improve their game we can all use the same process to achieve any goal. However, when using your imagination and acting as if you already have achieved the goal, using all your senses and making the created scene as real as possible, that may not be enough. What I have found in the 11 years of practice with people from all around the world is that the subconscious mind, which controls our behaviors (why will power / conscious force doesn’t work) has accepted this behavior associated to unhealthy eating as serving some purpose… an emotional purpose.
At the subconscious level we are directed away from pain and toward pleasure. And though the unhealthy choices and amounts people eat cause other problems such as excess, uncomfortable weight gain, blood, heart and joint problems as well as emotional issues like decreasing self esteem and more, the bad eating patterns are serving some other purpose. I have found it can be because there was a painful event like having your heart broken so getting fat will keep people away. Or life isn’t being lived in a satisfying way and there is lack of attention, companionship… pleasure. Many times it begins because of boredom and becomes a bad habit.
Either way, please know it is not necessary to continue with unhealthy habits, no need to diet and deprive yourself and be miserable and there is no need to struggle with will power to reach your goal of being healthy and fit. Instead of working against your subconscious, work with it and achieve weight loss with hypnosis… the natural, safe and effective approach. Like all my clients have said, “I wish I did this first.”
