Why Self Hypnosis For Weight Loss Is So Effective

By Jaclyn Hurley

Hypnosis refers to the act of inducing a trance state of deep relaxation, and heightened awareness. Usually, a qualified hypnotherapist would guide a client into such a meditative frame of mind, for purposes of what can be called deep reprogramming. Self hypnosis for weight loss involves the same principles, except that here hypnotically induced reprogramming, accompanied by appropriate suggestions, are self induced.

Clients generally consult a hypnotherapist to help with changing a negative behaviour or attitude - like smoking, gambling, or chronic anxiety - and to learn a new one. Under hypnotic induction, such efforts toward behavioural change amounts to reprogramming the deeper subconscious mind. Inducing, and working with, the latter mental state is key, since this is where the root of the problem, as well as the solution, resides.

Newcomers to hypnotic induction will be better off consulting the right professional first, to not only experience what it is like, but also to learn the proper techniques. One will also get ample opportunity in the presence of an experienced professional to practice and rehearse mastering the technique for purposes of self induction. It is the only way to make sure the wished-for goals can be achieved, and to avoid disappointment, and wasting time.

Much of learning to reprogram the subconscious mind hypnotically involves replacing old, limiting, self-defeating beliefs and behaviours with new, empowering ones. It is in essence a matter of offering specific, appropriate suggestions to the mind while it is deeply at ease. Moreover, in that mental mode of utter calm and alertness, the person gets to visualize many times over what the new personality looks and feels like, after having reached the desired goals.

When it comes to losing extra fat through self-initiated hypnotherapy, the first step would be to make a list of the problem behavioural patterns and beliefs that contribute to being overweight. These might include overeating, consuming unhealthy foods, or impulsive eating, or even feelings of anxiety when under stress. For the process to work, it is important to have a clear idea of what the problematic, target beliefs and behaviours are, and what the alternative, wanted ones are, before going into a hypnotic state.

For example, a person might want to change negative thoughts and beliefs like, 'I will never get thinner, ' or, 'there is no point in trying to get rid of extra fat.' In addition, one might want to focus on new, empowering actions that could include eating healthier foods, chewing food slowly, eating smaller portions, and going for regular, brisk walks. Part of the hypnotic reprogramming might also entail imagining oneself actually looking thinner, and wearing clothes that fit comfortably on a trimmed-down body, for instance.

Hypnotically induced suggestions for therapeutic purposes are not about wished-for fantasies. Fantasizing about losing excess pounds is not going to help, if no concrete action is taken to address the issue. Applying under self-generated hypnotherapy is one such action step, and a powerful one that delivers sought-after outcomes, if done correctly, consistently, and with patience.

Hypnotherapy might not produce the desired results for everyone. Whether aided by a therapist, or created through one's own efforts, it does require consistent practice to achieve success. People that have managed to achieve the longed-for body shape and size through the process have been at it regularly, however.
