Let’s Bust An Old
Weight Loss Hypnosis Myth Today![be sure to scroll down for the fabulous video I made for you as well as a very cool weight loss hypnosis SONG]
A lot of people seem to think that if they go to a hypnotist for weight loss (fat loss really), then they won’t have to exercise or change their eating habits… the pounds will somehow, suddenly, just magically melt off…
Somehow after spending an hour with “The Wizard of Oz” they will just magically start to crave only foods that are healthy and slimming and will somehow want to go to the gym every day.
And if that mythical experience doesn’t happen, then they feel justified in blaming the hypnotherapist for their failure to reach their goals.
The reality is that hypnosis is a good way to retrain yourself to stop eating crap, and to actually get yourself to get up off of the couch and move your body but first you have to stop hypnotizing yourself to be the way you’ve always been.
The bottom line is that YOU are the actual hypnotist. The professional trained in hypnosis who you pay money to is actually coaching (or “coaxing” ) you into changing your thoughts. Changing your thoughts changes your behaviors. Changing your behaviors is what actually gets you the results you desire.
Hypnosis is a tool to communicate with your unconscious mind so that your unconscious mind actually starts giving you more of what you want and less of what you don’t want. You are the one doing the actual communicating.
On this journey we encounter a few challenges that really boil down to rejecting the Mass Hypnosis of our dominant cultural patterns.
One challenge is that your unconscious mind is really the “soft animal of your body”. And all us animals are pre-programmed to save energy. Unfortunately resting whenever possible to save energy evolved as our “default” program. And in today’s world of “labor saving devices”, and constant sitting at work, in cars, on the couch etc, we all move our bodies a lot less than in a traditional hunter/gatherer society where we evolved.
Instead of walking 5 miles to get something to eat (or 10 if necessary), we walk 5 steps to the refrigerator or the kitchen cabinet.
Another challenge is that any TV you watch, even if it’s only in the waiting room of your car dealer’s service department, is filled with hypnotic food and beverage ads. And THAT hypnosis is constantly bombarding your little unconscious mind over and over with vibrant, riveting images and stories that promise PLEASURE from food… RELIEF from stress… HAPPINESS with each lip smacking mouthful…
One of the reasons I dislike going to the gym is that they have the televisions blaring all the time… banks and banks of hypnotic media preaching exactly the opposite of what I want to feed my mind while I’m working my body.
The most important message I can convey to you is that YOU are the world’s most powerful hypnotist. Your best approach to cancelling old eating and exercise habits is to learn how to take charge of your own mind.
Careful! There ARE side effects! You might start seeing through all the dominant cultural baloney that “everybody just accepts”. :o)
I’d like to suggest if I may that it might be time for you to Stop allowing random Television strangers (ad agencies and food manufacturers) hypnotize you.
It just might be time for YOU to take charge of your change. I’m not suggesting you Master Your Mind For A Change right this instant. But you certainly might want to consider starting soon… Like today. or Tomorrow… or perhaps this coming Tuesday… You don’t have to change now unless you truly want to with all your heart!
Here’s a short video I made the other night after I worked out… for 5 minutes. Yep. You heard that right. My workouts are about 5 minutes long. The video is even shorter. You could even stretch while you watch it.
(below the video is a song that is actually a weight loss hypnosis session. Yeah really!)
I’m gearing up for my next 90 day challenge and one of the areas I’m personally working on with my body is to lower my body fat percentage. I would like to see my abs. However going form 18% body fat down to the 9% or so that would showcase my “washboard” is a bit of a leap, even for me. So the goal I’m going to set will probably be to move my body fat down to a significant 15%. That’s a bit of a stretch but it still seems “doable”.
So along with my other goals in other areas of my life, this is one I will start using self hypnosis to make into my new reality. What I’m looking for is long term, sustainable health, not some crash diet or crazy workout that might cause me to hurt myself.
If you’d like to go deeper with me in this area of your life, check out my course, “It’s Not Just About The Food!” my online fat loss course. and join us for the 90 day Transformation Tuesday Challenge
