Can self-hypnosis make you slim?

Hypnosis largely involves the process of getting your mind into a condition-accepting state. It has to do with convincing your mind to believe, accept and effect almost anything. During this therapy, a patient can take a depthless trip into the subconscious just to eliminate habits and beliefs that are detrimental to to his/her living. Hypnosis is also popular for getting one to lose weight and become slim. While many would seek the services of a professional, be informed that you can do it all by yourself by means of self-hypnosis, without having to incur any expense.

Step 1

The first thing you would want to do in your bid to lose weight through self-hypnosis is to find some time in your day where external factors and other environmental conditions will not be a distraction to you. Work round your own clock and religiously set out a 30 minute, personal, quiet time which you will keep to piously. In this 30 minute period, you will immerse yourself in a trance, thusly, it is crucial that you are 100% focused and relaxed during this timeout.

Step 2

Set weight loss goals for yourself, realistically. What you need to do is aim for the specific amount of pounds you intend shedding. Be exact with the time lag through which you wish to lose such weight. While you ready yourself for your hypnosis session, you need to say the goal out loud to yourself as many times as possible in order for the thought to fill your mind and become almost a part of your subconsciousness.

Step 3

Are you a fan of Kylie Jenner because of her attractive figure? Visualise that body shape if that is what you crave for a physique. You just need to imagine what your body will look like once you cross the threshold and gain the ideal weight you have in mind. You need to use the power of your mind to cut yourself down to size. You just have to make the visual as vivid as possible, rich with colour, smell, sound and feelings. It just has to be real enough to you.

Step 4

Shut your eyes and get your body into a relaxed state, until it is completely limp. Take deep breaths for about five minutes until a not-so-identifiable sensation runs from your skull through to your feet. Once you feel that sensation, relax that part of your body and you will enter into a trance. In that trance, you need to ideally imagine yourself. Develop thoughts about your world view, how others will see you and just how incredible it would be when you are healthy and in your desired body shape. In the trance, view your body in its trimmed, slim and light state.

Step 5

Finally, after all your subconscious thinking through positivities, gradually return to your present state. All the feelings and convictions should be brought back with you as you return. Repeating this process everyday will help train your mind to experience the good feeling that comes with weight loss. Gradually, you will make the behaviour changes crucial to having the figure you want.

The above is just one method to do self hypnosis that is simple and works for many people.
