What a success! Our 3rd Annual Hypnosis for Weight Loss Series has begun with a BANG! We even had a guy join our group and not mind the room full of ladies one bit!
Tuesday night we started things off by explaining what hypnosis is: the technique of relaxing the body so much (to the delta level of sleep), and take magical metaphorical journey’s within a safe, ‘secret place’ (our unconscious mind) to find that strength and power we’ve always had, but cover up with nasty energy sucking critical thoughts residing in our critical mind (conscious mind).
We can be brutal on ourselves! Or, some hold a lot of rage and are mentally brutal toward someone else…damaging their own good energy in the process.
When we allow our emotions to take control of us (usually because many of us were not really raised with healthy coping skills) we are allowing these emotions and stress from the emotions to reside in our bodies. Have you heard that stress attacks our organs? I’ll put it a more clearer way; when we feel stress we usually feel it in some part of our body. Some feel it in their tummy, some feel the stress pain in their chest, or shoulders, or head (where do you hold your stress in the body?). If the stress is not resolved it will eventually make you sick in that part of your body.
So in our journey last night we were introduced to the secret place, and found a little wooden bridge going over a creek of cool running water…so we focused hard on that bridge, knowing that if we decided to cross it, we are making a serious commitment to ourselves. We are going to lose (insert number of pounds each participant decided to lose) by (insert the date for completion of goal).
We then learned an amazing technique for confronting those emotions that get in our way of peace of mind and happiness. It brought some tears, which is normal, things are beginning to open up and shift by now.
Having a seat in the theatre of our own minds and watching ourselves in the body shape and weight we aspire to. Whatever the mind can conceive and believe, it will achieve!
Later we met the person who had a special message for our participants and they listened to those messages intently. The person was the wise old man, or woman, and everyone listens in their own minds to what they are hearing. These messages are often extremely profound and meaningful to the receiver as they are relaxing and visualizing.
Next Tuesday is our 2nd session where we will experience a hypnotic gastric band surgery which lessons the appetite instantly.
If there was a little bit of an upset, I did invite the Kelowna Women’s Shelter to have two of their clients join our group at no cost, and the organization said they couldn’t support ‘services like that.’ Sigh. No matter, when the student is ready, the teacher will appear. Nothing can be forced, but I plan to continue educating people on what it is that I do do for my livelihood, and what it is I do is help people lift out of depression and anxiety DRUG FREE! I’ll never be ashamed of that.
Live well everyone, you deserve it in spite of yourself. ❤
