Do you wonder how to lose weight easily? Is this a question you pondered? Diet’s don’t work for everyone, if they did there would be no overweight people. So why can’t you lose weight? The short answer is, you don’t want to.
Often, it is because more going on in our subconscious mind than we realise. We use negative talk on ourselves, which creates self-fulfilling prophecies.
We must want the change; we must want the benefits of the change; we must want it badly enough so that we will do what is required to make the change happen. We must believe the change is possible.
10% of your mind represents your conscious mind. That is where you reason, make decisions, where your willpower is stored. 90% represents your subconscious mind. This is your auto function. This is the area that makes you breathe, manages your body and your emotions. That is where you store your beliefs, your automatic responses, your habits. This is also where your primitive area housing ‘fight or flight’ reactions is.
Many of our beliefs are formed in early years from what we see, hear and experience. As a child, you are ‘programmed’ for your adult years during the developmental phase, and it is this subconscious ‘programming’ that will run 95% of your adult life. So if your subconscious mind has been taught eating is comfort, or pleasure or I can’t exercise, that is what 90% of your mind will steer you to do. The conscious 10% that does not hold to that believe, which is your willpower, then have to contend with the 90%, and it becomes this tug of war.
Pain and pleasure principle
To make it even harder is the fact that the subconscious also work on a pain and pleasure principle. The things that the subconscious mind knows, the familiar things, is considered pleasure and the unknowns, the new things, are are considered pain. This is not logical. It has nothing to do with the fact that on a conscious level you can see whether something is good or bad for you. Your subconscious mind wants to stay the same. It avoids change, that is why we find change so scary and overwhelming because 90% of our minds don’t want change.
So how does this work in practise
When a child is born, they have no logic, reason or inhibitory processes. The only fears a baby is born with is the fear of falling and the fear of loud noises. All other fears are learned over the years via identification (you see or experience something) and association (you link that experience to something good or bad).
So the child starts to associate and learn about the world around them. The child is going to have some positive experiences, neutral experiences, negative experiences For each of us that is going to make up how we are going to interact with the world around us.
Example as you grow up you spend time a beach, was good, you have positive experience with ocean. Somebody else went to the ocean and had a negative experience So for you the idea of going to the ocean will bring up positive reaction where for the other person it would be negative reaction. Associating threat with it.
Different people in the same world, given the same stimulus, can react very differently based on what we have learnt. These things are what we call our knows, what have become knowns to us. These knowns (when we identify, make a association and have and emotions) become subconscious in nature, you do not consciously decide how you are going to react, becomes an automatic response.
Identification, association, response
Therefor your subconscious mind work with identification (hear a song), make an association (certain moment) and have a response (feel emotion). So for instance, for a smoker, smoking is a known and the association is that smoking give stress release and the emotion is happy. This is not logical but that is in the data base of the subconscious mind and that is why people can decide on a conscious level that smoking is bad on subconscious level they want to smoke.
So if there is a disagreement between conscious and subconscious, a conflict of mind, most often the subconscious mind wins.
So if you having a hard time to lose weight, chances are that you need to correct the interpretation on a subconscious level.
You need to take away your mental prison bars that you created for yourself away. The negative emotions that causes you to eat for all the wrong reasons. The eating habits like eating when you are bored and angry and the guilt that go with it.
You need to can change your mindset
So weight control and freedom comes, not through denying yourself, but ending the confusion. Your subconscious mind has a positive intent for you. This gives you incredible power because it means that you can decide and chose who you want to be and how you want your life to be from now on. You have all the resources you need to bring about the change and success.
Hypnotherapy and virtual reality therapy is the tools that can help you focus on what you need to achieve success.
Hypnosis works because it works on the level of feelings, patterns, and subconscious motivations. You can let go of negative emotions, anger, limiting believes and correct associations. Hypnosis gives you the power to choose. To no longer think about getting rid of something but creating a new relationship with food and your body. Change becomes easy by reprogramming your subconscious to see the benefit of the change and not the loss of what you are not longer allowed to eat.
Virtual Reality Therapy enables you to see yourself as the new person. If you imagine it, it will come. The changes is cemented into your subconscious because for the subconscious mind reality and fantasy is the same.
Seeing a Healthy Image of oneself has a Profound Effect on attitude and behaviour. The altered reality impacts on how the mind thinks about it’s actual self, resulting in positive change.
