Hypnosis is a powerful ally in your struggle to quiet that critical inner voice so that you can successfully use hypnosis for weight loss and permanently lose weight. We all have lapses when we overeat or snack on the wrong foods. Far too often you then might experience a bout of self-criticism and disappointment. The “critical inner voice” starts speaking up, and its message is extremely detrimental to your emotional and physical well-being. The voice beats you up by calling you weak or a failure. For some, the inner voice is less harsh, mildly disapproving or merely somewhat gloomy. However you experience it, how you respond is vitally important to your efforts to lose weight.
Why is it so important?
These negative thoughts can, and usually do, sabotage your efforts to lose weight. If you want to lose weight, it is absolutely necessary to overcome this negative self-programming. That critical inner voice can be thought of as that part of you whose job it is to defend and fulfill the beliefs of your subconscious mind. Think of your subconscious mind as a vast library – the repository of all you have seen, heard, felt and experienced. It also contains the template for all of your beliefs and behaviors about what you deserve or, in this case, how you respond to food.
Your critical inner voice operates like a head librarian, deciding upon and implementing policy based upon what you feel you deserve. That voice is actually trying to protect and guide you, although it does not know how to accomplish those goals in a gentle way. It wants you to be strong in the face of life’s challenges. Therefore, like an overbearing parent, it forcefully tries to control your thoughts, emotions and actions. It treats you like a child, convinced that you are unable to deal with stress, anxiety, loneliness, sadness and other feelings. So it has you eat, distracting you from your emotions, escaping from your issues with food or drink. Do you see how powerful it is? It both forces you to do something against your conscious will and then it beats you up for doing it! It overcomes your will power then scolds you for being weak.
Why does it do this?
It wants to remain in control. It feels you are incapable of coping without food or some other form of medication. This cycle of failure keeps you from becoming empowered and regaining control over what you eat and drink.
What is the solution?
Hypnotherapy can be a huge part of ending this cycle of sabotage. It is important to confront the part of you that keeps you from succeeding. Hypnosis gives you access to your subconscious mind, opening a doorway so that you can anchor in new positive beliefs and behaviors, beginning the process of regaining control of your life.
Remember the analogy of your subconscious mind and the library? Often the most popular books in a library are found up front on display. They are current, influential or significant. Hypnosis helps you place up front in your personal library thoughts, beliefs and behaviors that reflect your desire for health.
The more constant and important those thoughts become, the sooner you begin to eat better foods in the right sized portions, reduce snacking (and choose healthier snacks), drink more water and exercise. Hypnotherapy essentially creates in your subconscious mind an ally for your conscious mind, boasting your willpower and ability to resist then transform that critical inner voice.
While hypnosis is very easy to use, you only begin to see the powerful benefits when you experience it. So read more about these benefits at http://GreenwoodHypnotherapy.com
