Does Self Hypnosis For Weight Loss Really Work? by Sherri Frost

Yes, self hypnosis for weight loss absolutely does work.

We all have mind power waiting to be tapped into. Yet, it's not for everyone. Many people have hypnosis fears for different reasons. They may have seen a stage show in Las Vegas or on a cruise and don't want to end up clucking like a chicken every time a bell rings.

Stage shows are very entertaining and that's the point. You can still realize that hypnosis is quite valuable as a tool for change.

Honestly, if a hypnotist can make you do something as simple as clucking like a chicken when you hear a bell... can you imagine what can be done to help you with your weight loss?

A hypnotist is simply a teacher and hypnosis is simply learning. Put the two together and self hypnosis means creating a lesson that will be learned and absorbed into your subconscious mind.

There are two minds at work here. Your conscious mind is the critical mind and the subconscious mind is the part that holds your beliefs. With hypnosis, you put aside the constant evaluations of your conscious mind and allow your subconscious mind to accept new suggestions and beliefs.

By practicing self hypnosis, you create the suggestions that are perfect for you.

Hypnosis occurs in a tranquil state of trance. Someone in trance-like state doesn't walk around with arms outstretched like a zombie - unless a stage hypnotist tells them to anyway!

This peaceful relaxation feels wonderful. Too many people don't take the time to relax and unwind on a regular basis and you may find that you want to stay there for a while.

Here's why hypnosis works: While you are in a relaxed state, your mind is open to suggestion.

The critical mind has relaxed allowing all of the suggestions to be more easily accepted and put into action.

What happens when you believe strongly in something?

You take action because you believe it to be true.

If your belief is "I eat only when I am physically hungry" Then you aren't going to eat if you don't feel hungry. Instead, you'll wait until you hear it growling before eating again.

The pounds will begin to drop off naturally.

This is what self hypnosis for weight loss will do for you.
