Self-Hypnosis for Weight Loss
Self-Hypnosis is the ability to influence the mind with positive (or negative) thinking. It is also a well-kept weight loss secret. A study in the Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology showed that, when comparing the results of adding hypnosis to other weight loss treatments across many different methods, adding hypnosis increased weight loss by an average of 97% during treatment.
The first step to weight loss management is to decide that it is possible. We all have everything we need to succeed within us. We attain self-hypnosis by becoming influenced by our own thinking. Anyone can start with the following simple steps.
Get into a comfortable position with relaxing instrumental music in the background. Close the eyes and take a few deep breaths. On the exhale, breathe out slowly through the mouth. Feel the release of stress and tension throughout the entire body. Notice how good it feels.
Once in a relaxed state, imagine the body as if it is already at the intended goal—at the ideal weight and shape. Choose a weight for that end goal. See the body at this weight and notice how good it feels to be there. Connect the image to the feeling and know that it will manifest.
Do this visualization every day, for a period of 21 days, to make this a habit. Be consistent in order for the subconscious mind to accept it as truth. Self-hypnosis always causes positive changes and positive results.
