Over time, most of us become slaves to habit. Once we find our comfort zone, we don’t want to leave. But quite often, our comfort zone isn’t a healthy one. Hypnosis for weight loss is an excellent way of dragging us out of our unhealthy comfort zone, eliminating the bad habits and replacing them with good ones.
Throughout time, food has been a source of pleasure. We eat because it tastes good, We eat because it makes us feel good. Sometimes we eat just because it’s there. What party would be complete without a table full of munchies.
Most of the time, we eat unconsciously. We walk by an open bag of cookies, we take one, right? Many times we eat because we are bored, tired, happy, or one of many other assorted reasons other than hunger.
Hypnotherapy works by reprogramming your subconscious mind to eat only when you’re hungry. It works at the subconscious level, where habits are formed. By eating only when you’re hungry, your body will automatically begin to return to a more ideal weight. It also helps you eliminate those cravings for junk food, so the food you eat will naturally be healthier.
Bad habits, as well as good ones, become unconscious, or automatic. Have you ever driven your car and arrived at a destination before realizing that you were on “auto pilot” the whole time? You stopped for the red lights, stop signs, made the correct turns, and got to where you were going without consciously thinking about it. Driving has became an unconscious task for you and hopefully, all your good driving habits got you safely to where you wanted to go.
This also applies to our good and bad eating habits. That bag of chips, cupcake, or candy bar can disappear almost without our knowledge. Many overweight people often find that their eating habits have become an unconscious habit. Our unconscious habits can keep us safe when driving our car, but our eating habits can ruin any diet.
Hypnosis is a very normal, pleasurable state of mind that occurs at least twice a day for most people. It is that dreamy far away sensation that we sometimes feel just before drifting off to sleep at night, or just before being fully awake in the morning. Another example of how being in a hypnotic state can make you feel would be gazing into a fireplace or campfire. You are aware of everything around you, but you feel totally relaxed, in sort of a dream state. Hypnotism can do the same. It puts you in dream state, but at the same time, you will be completely aware of what’s going on around you, but the awareness is in the background.
The hypnotic state opens the subconscious mind, making it susceptible to suggestions by a skilled hypnotist or audio guide. These suggestions can reinforce our good habits and replace our bad habits.
Hypnosis can provide powerful suggestions to our subconscious mind to eat healthier, more nutritious foods and snacks. So the next time you reach for that cupcake or bag of chips, your hand will stop in mid air and you will realize that you are now in control. It just goes to show how powerful your subconscious mind can be.
Weight loss hypnosis is a powerful tool for following the doctor’s advice to eat right and exercise.
