Weight loss hypnosis is used with compassion – not perfection. Perfection is often a built in guarantee for failure, especially when it comes to weight loss and hypnosis. In my Seattle weight loss office of Slender For Life™ I teach clients how to do hypnosis with the Light Switch self-hypnosis technique. This is just one self-hypnosis technique, there are many variations of excellent hypnosis techniques. What is important to me is that you learn an instant hypnosis method so that you can create positive changes in your life. you can watch my video hypnosis trainings on YouTube.
The other day in Slender For Life™ weight loss session a client was talking about self-hypnosis and was beating herself up because she wasn’t doing it perfectly. Now mind you this woman has had two weeks experience at learning how to do hypnosis and from what she described to me I thought she had done at outstanding job. You see there isn’t just one self-hypnosis technique, the variations hypnosis techniques are limitless.
We talked through what she was doing and I told her my flute story. I love the flute music of R. Carlos Nakai and have many of his CDs. Years ago I bought a wooden flute made by a Native American and having no musical training or talent had the idea that I would learn to play it. After a few days of squeaking and squawking and not sounding like Nakai, I gave up, set it on a book shelf and occasionally dusted it off. It sat on the book shelf unused for years.
One day, while listening to Nakai, I picked up my flute and it still squeaked and squawked. But, I had an ah-ha moment. The obvious occurred to me. I will never sound like Nakai and that is OK. If I want Nakai music, I will play one of my CDs. And, it is one of my pleasures to on occasion pick up the flute and play it – and yes, it still squeaks and squawks and that is OK too! I have learned to enjoy my flute and my flute playing in all its imperfection.
I now think of my flute story numerous times throughout my life. It used to be that if I didn’t think that I could do something perfectly on the first time, I didn’t try. If I did try and failed on the first attempt, I quit. Today, I let of having to do it perfectly the first time. I no longer let that be a reason to keep me from trying.
When I teach clients how to do hypnosis with the Light Switch self-hypnosis I urge them to adapt this method so that it works for them. I focus on teaching instant hypnosis so that you can create positive changes in your life without having to do it perfectly.
