Hypnosis is not rocket science, it’s not scary nor complicated, on the contrary, it’s simple, touching, and warm, it is the most widely known method of mind control, it does a real effect on you and your behaviors, because it can control the most powerful unit in your brain, the unit which includes all your actions, thoughts, and your interests, it can help you turn your negative habits into positive ones, and it can help you feel better about yourself.
So how can hypnosis help us lose weight? Let’s figure this out!
What is hypnosis?
According to Wikipedia, hypnosis are defined as follows:
“Hypnosis is a state of human consciousness involving focused attention and reduced peripheral awareness and an enhanced capacity to respond to suggestion. The term may also refer to an art, skill, or act of inducing hypnosis”
So hypnosis makes it easier to break the barrier between the conscious mind and the subconscious mind,
as a result, the hypnotic skips the conscious mind and communicates with the subconscious mind directly, which puts the person in a state of concentration and relaxation, where he’s more responsive to messages and suggestions given to him, it’s not like sleep, where you totally lose control of yourself, it’s just like a daydreaming with full control on yourself.
Your subconscious mind is the key, it handles all operations take place in your brain, it controls things that you do automatically every day, like driving, cleaning, breathing, heart beating, thinking, and taking decisions, and here where changes take place in your personality and behavior, but that can’t be done without hypnosis, because we need to move the conscious mind- which makes a continuous filtration to everything received from the surrounding- out of the way, to reach to the subconscious mind, where freedom and imagination have no limits, that time only it is possible to deliver messages and suggestions to your brain, and start making real changes.
Our weight problems are a combination of wrong eating habits
Why scientists thought of hypnosis as a solution for weight loss problems? Simply because our unhealthy eating habits, our wrong view to eating food, and our lack of self-esteem and confidence towards our body image, all of which are present in the brain.
We don’t eat only when we’re hungry, we eat when we’re feeling stressed, bored, frustrated, overwhelmed, and excited, we chose the wrong act to respond to our diverse feelings, and that thing needs to be fixed in the brain itself.
When we celebrate an occasion we eat, when we have a party, we eat, when we have a funeral we eat, when we watch a movie at the cinema or watch a match at home, we eat, and we link every occasion to a certain type of food, for example, we link watching tv with friends with nibbling on chips and dip, with too much soda, we link going to the movies with eating a big pack of popcorn, that we finish fast without our consciousness.
These linkages are caused by our society, they became obligatory in our brains, and getting rid of these habits, needs a big effort to control yourself, or simply go for hypnosis.
Hypnosis and Weight Loss
Hypnosis is a simple way to reach your dream body, it is an easy path for a successful noticeable weight loss and exercising.
As we mentioned above, hypnosis can make drastic changes for human brains, the hypnotherapist can communicate with the subconscious mind and deliver him positive suggestions, and when we talk about hypnosis for weight loss, those messages should be about healthy eating habits, controlling your appetite, eating only when you feel hungry, and getting motivated to exercise.
Hypnosis helps people fix the psychological issues causing them to overeat, crave high calorie sugary food, binge at night, eat without conscious, and hate to workout, it stimulates the inner mind to be more committed to healthy eating habits, and choosing the right food to eat throughout the day, it encourages sticking to exercising and improves self confidence, it changes the way people think about themselves, about food, and about exercise.
Hypnosis simply teaches people how to deal with their emotions and stress away from food and eating, and teaches them how to be more relaxed, and how to avoid stress.
And for super results, always visualize yourself with the body image you really want, visualize looking good in a certain outfit, walking confidently between people, imagine your friends asking you what the heck you did to lose weight! Keep these thoughts on your mind every now and then, so your subconscious mind will automatically start working hard to fulfill that image, and you’ll end up with a great result.
Repetition is the key
Hypnosis is not a single treatment session, you can’t get the best out of it when done once or twice, it is a multiple session treatment, as you have to keep communicating with the subconscious mind continuously to get the result you’re looking for, otherwise the brain will simply forget those messages given to it in the last session, and no development will take place.
Gradually, session after session, you will realize that you’re changing for a better person, with better decisions and choices, and a better self-esteem, you’ll choose your food carefully, and adhere more to your workout plan, you will see the pounds drop easily, easier than just dieting without the involvement of your brain.
Where to get hypnotized
You can choose to attend one to one hypnosis sessions in one of the hypnosis centers, you can find many good hypnotherapists who can help you lose weight, but if you’re on a budget; then online hypnosis is your good choice.
There are plenty of hypnotherapists on the internet selling their sessions online, they save your money and time, you can – while you’re at home- get comfortable on your couch, put on your headphones, get relaxed, and listen to those sessions.
But before that, you have to believe that hypnosis is able to make you lose weight, if the brain is not convinced with the idea, it will keep resisting all the messages delivered to it through the sessions, and those sessions would become useless and time wasting.
You can repeat your sessions daily, which is highly recommended, you can choose the most convenient time for you to listen to those sessions, it’s much easier than setting an appointment with a hypnotherapist for one to one sessions.
I found an article for a fat woman who lost 50 pounds only using weight loss hypnosis, which made me certain that hypnosis can make great changes, and when I practiced hypnosis, it was really a nice experience, the hypnosis itself made me feel super relaxed and light, I enjoyed every second of it, but I was skeptical about it’s results, but later, I found myself choosing fruits to dessert when I used to crave something sweet, and felt uncomfortable laying down on the couch the whole day, I began feeling more motivated to exercise, at least to walk, and If I was more committed to those sessions, I would definitely feel different about the food which I used to get addicted to.
So If you choose to try hypnosis to lose weight, and you were committed and found results, please share us your story, to help others lose weight gently and away from stress.
