Emotional Eating – Control your appetite
The good news is you can!
The human mind functions on at least two levels of awareness; the conscious mind and the sub-conscious mind. These two levels of awareness are complimentary and operate simultaneously. The conscious, analytical mind acts as a filter for incoming information. Comparatively, the sub-conscious mind has limited reasoning capabilities; it believes what it is told and proceeds to act on this information as though it were true.
When dealing with the issue of excess and unwanted weight, it is important to reframe the idea of your sub-conscious mind, from being the enemy to being your strongest ally!
Your sub-conscious mind always accesses information that it believes you need, but lacking judgement, it may also be accessing unwanted behaviours and beliefs. This information includes, old hurts and traumas, protective instincts, and any myriad of negative concepts and ideas that the vast storehouse of your mind has hoarded. Habits are also created and stored in your sub-conscious. This is helpful when you need to remember the skills involved in driving your car each morning , but it is much less appealing if each evening when you sit on the sofa and reach for the remote control device, your sub-conscious mind sees that as a trigger to get up at the commercial break and check the refrigerator for a snack.
There are three primary pathways to sub-conscious learning, repetition, association and emotion. When using Hypnosis for Weight Loss, a qualified Hypnotist will work with the client, speaking directly to the clients sub-conscious while in trance, giving the client positive and post-hypnotic suggestions and creating new, healthy eating habits. Techniques employed include behaviour modification, creating new habits and associations and sometimes hypnotic regression to address deeper emotional reasons for excess weight.
