Hypnosis is a procedure during which you experience changes in sensations, perceptions, thoughts or behavior. The procedure begins with an induction period that includes suggestions for relaxation, calmness and well-being. The induction period is followed by a variety of techniques often used by a hypnotherapist to help you change your mind. Some of these techniques include:
- Reversing the behaviors that led you to gain weight.
- Strengthening your will power and determination.
- Re-shaping your attitudes towards healthy foods and exercise.
- Visualizing a new, healthy body as well as a new, happy, YOU.
USING HYPNOSIS TO PRACTICE MINDFUL MEDITATION
These days, hypnosis is commonly used to help people with Mindful Meditation. After entering into a relaxed state, or hypnosis, your attention is simply focused on your thoughts with no judgement. It might help to imagine that part of your brain is simply the “observer” of you, your thoughts and behaviors.
The goal of Mindfulness is to slow down your pace of life which results in significantly less stress and more peacefulness and allows you to be more fully engaged in life. Practitioners of Mindfulness report more happiness and joy in their lives, healthy weight loss and research shows much less dementia in seniors who practice Mindfulness regularly.
