Dean Ornish, M.D., has been teaching for years that love is more powerful than fear. What he means by this is that making lifestyle changes because you are fearful of the consequences of being overweight, or smoking or other unhealthy choice will leave you overweight and smoking. When a person has a heart attack. The physician has their full attention, and they’ll do just about anything the doctor tells them they need to do—but usually only for about four to six weeks or so. Then, they often go back to their old ways. They tune out. Clients at Seattle hypnosis, Bainbridge hypnosis, Forks hypnosis and now with the Hypnosis Health Info Internet Office all learn self hypnosis and other tools to help you to find the love and joy in living your healthy lifestyle changes.

Love, Not Fear,
Will Help Us Fix Climate Change
Because fear is not a sustainable motivator
—in health or in politics.
Time, Dean Ornish, September 30, 2014: In the short run, fear is powerful, it gets our attention. It activates a primal part of our brain, the amygdyla, that helps us survive a short-term crisis (e.g., the proverbial saber-toothed tiger jumping out in front of us).
In the long run, though, it’s too scary to think that something really bad may happen to us, so we usually don’t, at least not for long. The human mortality rate is still 100%—one per person—but it’s not something most people think about very often. Until something bad happens, but, even then, only for a short while.
Fear is not a sustainable motivator. What enables people to make sustainable changes in their lives, both personal and planetary, is not fear of dying; it’s joy of living. Love is more powerful than fear as a sustainable motivator.

I read on Facebook, “You want results – then eat like it.” If it was only that simple. Too often, Slender For Life™ hypnosis for weight loss clients tell me that they want to continue eating the foods that make them fat and sick and that they want to become slender and healthy. Sorry, it doesn’t work that way. When I ask why they want to be slender and healthy, I hear things like, “for my health,” and “I wouldn’t hurt so much.” That’s nice, but moving away from fear and pain is not sustainable. To be successful at achieving your goals, you must emotionally connect to what it is you do want. When you learn hypnosis, you are able to focus on what you want and rewire your neurology for success.
