2015 is almost here. What are your dreams and resolutions for the coming year?
Will you try to quit smoking or maybe try to lose weight. These are two common New Year resolutions among many.
Others include not drinking as much, saving more, spending less, being a better person and.....the list goes on and on. In fact there are probably as many Mew Year resolutions as there are people.
Everyone has a different perspective on what that change means.
BUT, the big question is........
after making them how will you implement them in a way that makes them stick?
It happens at almost every show And in many one on one or group therapy sessions. Someone will come up and ask me "What if I can't be hypnotised?" or tell me"You can't hypnotise me!"
Both interesting questions and demonstrate that many people today are confused about what hypnosis is, and also , what it isn't"
Lets start with what hypnosis is.
It is a state of deep relaxation where the volunteer is so focused on the hypnotist's voice that they simply block everything else out.
Sometimes you can see great insights in simple things.
Take kid's movies for example. Like Kung Fu Panda.
Here is this panda, called Po, who works in a noodle shop.
All the time he is dreaming of being a kung fu master.
When he wakes from his dreams he is just a panda.
And yet, he still dreams of his goal in his waking moments.

Are you one of those people who weigh themselves on the scales regularly?
Did you know that it actually makes your situation worse not better?
My statement is based on the statement "you tend to get more of what you focus on".
Even if you are focusing on moving away from something. You tend to get more of it because that's where you focus is. May sound a little crazy but it's true.
If we dig a little deeper for an explanation or a contributing factor then we will do well to refer to Psycho-Cybernetics by Dr Maxwell Maltz.
It happens to most people who are go on diets.
1. They start the latest fad diet.
2. They starve themselves.
3. They lose some weight.
4. They stop the diet or get distracted.
5. The weight comes back and even more.
Why is it so?
Firstly, it is based on willpower not belief. Willpower only accounts for about 5% of change. The problem is that most people don't have the rigid discipline required to consciously focus on their diet 24/7. Secondly, you are working against the life force of nature.
If you have had enough of looking in the mirror and not enjoying the reflection of an overweight body......if you don't like the feeling of wearing baggy clothes to cover yourself up......if you are thinking about Christmas and dreading the thought of eating your way through it....
Then it may be time to make a change for the better.
What if you could work on your weight while you sleep?
What if you enjoyed eating the right foods for you without having to think about it?
Imagine how much more you could be enjoying life!
Weight Loss - seems like a lot of people have an issue in this area of life.
