Self-Acceptance and Intuitive Eating through Hypnosis (giveaway)
Posted Apr 02 2013 2:51pm
In the very beginning stages of my blog, I wrote about hypnosis for weight loss . Hypnosis is something I am a huge believer in, I find it to be extremely successful in re-wiring our subconscious to make for better habit changes and behaviors that would otherwise be difficult to change.
I have been using hypnosis on an occasional basis for 4 years or so. I don’t do it religiously, but I use it when I feel like I need a boost. There are hypnosis recordings out there that can help with almost any issue. Most recordings help you better yourself and take your great self even higher. It’s also a great way to relax.
Hypnosis and guided meditation recordings are very similar in that they both take you to an extremely relaxed and meditative state of mind: your mind becomes calm and relaxed and also very open to receiving any hypnotic suggestions. This is where the magic happens, the hypnotherapist (in a recording) taps into your subconscious to give you subtle suggestions that your mind will accept and therefore, eventually, change your behavior. Because this is done on such a deep and profound level, these changes are more likely to stick. The only caveat is that you have to believe it works! The whole idea behind hypnosis is that the more you believe it can work, the more easily you will be able to get into the hypnotic state, and the more effective the suggestions will be. I suggest you give it a try, whether it’s a recording about intuitive eating (like the ones I’ll discuss here) or one for something else, just to relax.
About a month ago, I gave up on dieting and began my journey into intuitive eating. I started searching the web for people with a similar mindset. That’s how I came across Jennifer Polle . Jennifer Polle is a Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist and EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) Practitioner and has worked in the field since 2001.
I contacted Jennifer telling her about my beginning journey into Intuitive Eating. I read her page about intuitive eating and I was happy to see that she offers numerous hypnosis recordings that may help a person immerse themselves in the practice. I listened to these two recordings:
“Clearing Emotional Blocks” (29 min) – Designed to gently assist the subconscious in releasing beliefs, emotions and past experiences that may be keeping you from being as happy and healthy as you can be. Special emphasis on building self-acceptance and self-worth. Voice over soothing background music.
“Intuitive Eating for Weight Release” (28 min) - Especially effective after using Clearing Emotional Blocks for a month, this CD will assist you in getting re-acquainted with your natural, intuitive sense of what your body needs and wants for food and exercise. It’s based on the basic principles of intuitive eating and does not advocate “dieting”, but rather encourages you to trust the part of you that knows exactly what you need. Voice over nature sounds and soothing background music.
