Chances are that you have probably heard all the hype surrounding hypnosis and weight loss by now. Are they really connected? And if so, is hypnosis a good way to lose weight? Well, let’s think about this scientifically. Your body weight is just mass, and mass is related to energy. Energy is just a name for the moving particles at various frequencies through space. Hypnosis is a force that alters the frequencies of energy in your brain.
So what we are saying is, hypnosis and weight loss are clearly related and there is even scientific theory to support the fact. Not that science knows everything there is to know about either subject, but surely you see the connection made earlier.
Let’s say you want to know more about how weight loss hypnosis is done. Is an overweight person put in a hypnotic trance and left that way for a week, or however long it takes until they lose weight? Not really. It doesn’t quite work that way. An overweight person will attend several 30-minute or hour-long hypnotism sessions to successfully lose weight.
Your mental state and the physical condition of your body are intertwined. The mind drives the body. Have you ever been preoccupied with a task that you are doing, only to realize that in the meantime you’d completely forgotten lunch? Conversely, when your mind is preoccupied like when you are zoning out in front of the TV, you can go through an entire bag of potato chips and not even notice.
Can hypnosis help you not to feel hungry? Sure, it can. A lot of business executives and professional people use a form of self hypnosis every day. They train their brains to function without eating lunch because that is the busiest time of their day. This is just how hypnosis works, but on a smaller scale. Hypnosis is giving a suggestion to your mind to think and feel a different way. It all works very logically.
Under the careful supervision of a trained hypnotist who knows what he or she is doing, a person under hypnosis can explore childhood experiences. Metaphysics maintains that negative energy over past traumatic experience is sometimes bottled up in the body as fat. If you resolve leftover feelings from childhood, the fat will melt away. It requires the patient to be introspective and willing to talk about negative emotions, but in time it does work.
Another common reason for fat to accumulate is the mental signals we generate in the body. Everyday a friend of mine would not have breakfast. I read somewhere that by doing so she was telling her body “buddy I haven’t eaten in 16 hours” (10pm dinner to 2 PM lunch). The brain takes that as starvation. So the brain generates fatty cells to protect her body from starving. No way skipping breakfast was helpful to her weight loss goals.
To conclude, hypnosis and weight loss have various ways of coming together. See what agrees with you and start on it with a long-term view. There are no magic remedies. But you could well be the case study modern science is looking for.
