Just like Leroy of the Lockhorns I know that I used to make up any excuse I could to justify why I was eating junk food and why I was putting on more weight. I hear my clients talking about fat loss and saying they want to burn fat and lose weight and yet they find amazing reasons as to why their weight held this week or why they only lost one pound instead of two. Sometimes I giggle to myself as I listen to their justifications – its almost as if I’m their Priest at confession.
I never have to be hard on anyone and I never judge them – they are always so much harder on themselves. Hearing their judgements also makes me feel sad. What clients don’t realize is that their negative self-talk is a hypnotic trance – they are giving themselves negative suggestions.
If you have been reading my blogs, you know that my definition of hypnosis is taking control of the trance that you are in. In other words, when in that negative self-talk trance, you can use self-hypnosis and end the stinking thinking and give yourself positive suggestions. Hypnotherapy works – take back your control!
