Weight Loss Hypnotherapy
It’s mid-morning. Jayanthi stands in front of the refrigerator struggling with herself. “Eat the cake. Don’t eat the cake. Maybe just a little piece.” She gives in and begins eating until half the cake is gone. Thinking she has ruined the whole day anyway, she rationalizes that she may as well finish the rest and start her diet tomorrow. At this point she is thinking in blocks of time – a day, a week or a month. What if we were able to let go of that type of programming? What if we were able to let go of the guilt of the big breakfast we ate, as we sit down for lunch? Or the anxious anticipation of dinner, seen in the context of the day? When you consider that you will eat approximately 80,000 meals and 50,000 snacks over a period of a lifetime, this is a staggering number of eating events to cope with.
The good news is it can be changed through subconscious programming. Here’s a tip on how to start. Begin to think of each eating event as a unique and separate event on a continuous chain – such as a timeline. There is no before and after. Once you have completed your meal, it’s over forever. The next one is a brand new opportunity to nourish yourself successfully, both physically and mentally. You become free of the emotional burden that sabotages even your best efforts at control. There is no more waiting for tomorrow to start again. The same concept works with letting go of the kilos. Need to lose 9kg? That’s a daunting task! But as you let go of one kilo, it’s gone. Now you need to let go of another one. You will repeat this process for the number of times you desire but the task becomes easier with your new perspective.
Hypnosis allows direct access to the subconscious mind, where your belief systems reside. Desired changes are easy when your conscious and subconscious works together. Associations lodged in the subconscious can be altered. This allows for changes in behavior and thinking – which are often immediate. Food or situation triggers. which might send you off on an eating spree are desensitized in this manner as well. When you are able to view eating this way, and believe it, each meal becomes a pleasant opportunity for success and control.
Take in a few deep breaths and concentrate on relaxing all the muscles in your body. Let your mind clear and now repeat silently to yourself that you were focussing on eating on timeline, just dealing with one meal at a time. There is no past, nor future. Think about this and you will begin freeing yourself of old perspectives and develop new ones.
