Mind Bites for
food, eating and body awareness
Consider how much time you think about your body, food, eating, weight and that you need to exercise.
Give it a percentage. 50%, 80% of your day?
You push at your belly, resist eating to lunch with others, eat too fast, tell yourself 'it's ok,' or maybe you hide behind your desk so no one sees you.
Not pretty. This is the dark, silent side of WEIGHT LOSS STRESS!
You might not realize what all you do to punish, condemn, negate or sabotage your want for weight loss success. Like a placque, this shadowy side will slow or thwart any effort you take toward your achievement. Ask yourself this question:
Will your current thoughts, emotions, habits, health, food choices, and behaviors lead you to sustainable weight loss? Most likely not.
The truth is weight loss stress consumes your mind, your time, and sabotages your efforts. Weight loss stress can cause weight gain!
Life stress, dissatisfaction with body weight and eating habits, and the stress of weight loss is personal. There is a part of you that knows any effort is temporary because you have not made the life style shift AWAY from what has contributed TO THE WEIGHT GAIN, diets are temporary, and let's face there is a magical quality, again wishful, that the weight will fall off in three days.
Weight loss programs provide a compelling lure. Diet programs designer know about your cycles of despair and may sympathize, however, we all lose weight, but studies tell us that 95% gain it back over 5 years.
I had a client who did a leading weight loss program 13 times! The effort, money, and time/food/mental investment (not to mention your trust in the process) and you gained the weight back. Granted, some of the problem is yours and some of it is the diet mentality set forth in All-You-Can-Eat America.
Next question: How many diets have you been on? Seriously, make a list right now. I want you to see the list in front of you.
Weight Watchers, The Zone, Rice, Grapefruit, Juice fasting, Hydroxycut, and specialized potions. Is it time to stop playing the game?

Hypnotherapy and EFT
Hypnotherapy is a therapeutic approach for helping to resolve most human complaints, i.e. problems, worries, habits, situations and traumas, and can be applied to mental, physical and spiritual conditions. While it is true that many situations cannot be resolved in a way that we desire (return of a deceased loved one, or cure), hypnosis provides an opportunity to shift to a new perspective, to change a viewpoint or to gain a wise insight. We are then able to integrate the experience differently.
Many view hypnosis as a practice limited to behavior modification for smoking, weight management, nail biting and so on. Although hypnosis has been found to be effective in changing these behaviors, the application of this, and other approaches, such as EFT, include physical conditions (immunity, illness, surgery prep, pain management), grief, anxiety, depression, childhood struggles and adult issues (money, business, performance) can be helpful.

Alchemical Hypnotherapy is a highly interactive style of hypnosis. Called Mind Ware, Mental Technology - it reshapes the human psyche, a.k.a. the subconscious, in accordance to the clients desires guided by the higher self, source or spirit.Alchemical Hypnotherapy is empowering. The processes of Alchemical Hypnotherapy can be creatively applied to the arts, health, sport and all life challenges.
The word "alchemy" has been used for thousands of years and speaks of transformation. In this case, alchemy in Alchemical Hypnotherapy refers to the metaphor for 'changing one's lead into gold.' In practical terms, your problematic perceptions shift into empowerment. The energy that 'held' the emotions, thought forms, behaviors and physical tension changes and becomes useable, forminable life energy directed toward your goals.
The Mind State of Alchemical Hypnotherapy: There are varying levels of consciousness states of mind. We slip in and out of them all day. Even within hypnosis, different states of consciousness are used. In Alchemical Hynotherapy an 'alert trance' has been determined to be the most powerful healing place. When you wake up in the morning or go to sleep at night, there is a lulling experience that is similar to and 'alert trance.' You always remain in conscious control, see images, experience sensations, and hear my guidance for processing. We talk during the sessions and you remember the experience.
These processing sessions are longer than a traiditional therapy session, one and a half to two hours in length. You accomplish more in a shorter period of time.
The Alchemical Process: Like traditional hypnosis, the subconscious mind is accessed because your life experiences are stored in the subconscious mind. You also have symbols and images of your dreams and myths. The focus is on the interaction and communication with these symbols, images, energies and subpersonalities.

Medical Hypnosis refers to processes that target conditions of the body, surgery and recovery. There are countless studies that demonstrate the effectiveness of mind-body change work for conditions of the body, including injuries, illnesses and healing. It is estimated b the Center for Disease Control that 80% of illnesses are stress related. Certain personality traits have been correlated with cancers, hypertension and even the common cold. If stress is a factor in activating illness then does it not seem likely that less stress improves the health of the body.
Thoughts (attitudes, ideas, beliefs, inner dialogue, rantings) have a profound effect on the functioing of the body.
Hypnosis is ancient in its practice. Unfortunately through certain periods of time it was presented as demonic and mysterious. It is not the work of the devil as some cultures or religious zealots proclaim, and the manipulative mind control that Hollywood represents has no basis other than entertainment. The idea that a hypnotist can zombiefy the mind is absurd.
