Use Hypnosis To Acheive New Years Resolutions

Updated on December 6, 2012

This Year Really Will Be Different

The New Year is here, and there are so many things that you wish to be true in this upcoming year. You have reflected on events, emotions, and situations of the year going out an have so much hope for changes in the future.

Perhaps improving your health is on your mind; you may wish to loose some weight, you may wish to eat more healthy food, exercise more, or change an unhealthy habit like smoking or nail biting. Maybe you found that in the past year you longed for a sense of happiness and overall peace in general. There may be a need to improve relationships with loved ones, get along with people well, overcome social fears. Some may even wish to make more money, make a job change, relationship change, or simply view your life from an entirely new perspective. Whatever possibilities your heart desires for the coming year Hypnosis is a great tool for making them reality.

Hypnosis is the process by which we can get in touch with the subconscious to address the thoughts and beliefs that have been preventing us from manifesting the positive changes in our lives, and living the life we want to live. We all have thoughts and beliefs that run our lives. We may be aware or unaware of the impact that these thoughts and beliefs have on us, these beliefs produce both desirable and undesirable behaviors and emotions. Hypnosis allows us to move past the barrier in the mind where these thoughts and beliefs are in control and introduce a new beneficial thought in place of the damaging one. A damaging thought or belief, which is the root cause of a damaging behavior, if replaced by a healthy thought or belief will ultimately produce a new positive behavior or emotion in place of the old damaging one. In the end a whole new possibility exists that did not exist before.

Sounds very in line with resolving to change, does it not?

If Hypnosis Is So Great,Why Don't More People Use It.

Over time Hypnosis has gained some stereotypes that have led many to believe it to be scary. Frequently people believe that they will be made to do things they would not normally do, they can be manipulated, and they can get stuck in hypnosis. Because of these untrue beliefs many think that Hypnosis has some element of danger, loss of control, or embarresment. Many of these beliefs have stemmed from stage Hypnosis, the thing about stage is that anyone on the stage apparently being made to "quack like a duck", is willing to participate. The same is true with any kind of Hypnosis an indidvidual can never be made to do anything they are not willing to do, people are not capable of believing or doing anything that is outside of their basic life governing values. When an individual is under Hypnosis they are completely aware of everything going on around them, they are capable of standing up and walking out of the room at anytime during a session for any reason. Hypnosis merely guides you to a relaxed brainwave state in a controlled an focused way, that our brains naturally go in and out of all the time, if an indidvidual decides that they don't want to be in that brain wave state anymore then they will leave it and go back to a less relaxed cognitive state. Think of sleeping, sleeping is a much deeper brain wave state than those used in hypnosis, if one is sleeping and the fire alarm goes off will they continue to sleep being stuck in that brainwave state? No. An individual will wake up and engage cognitive function to save themselves.

To directly address the question of why more people don't use Hypnosis, at its most basic root many misunderstand what Hypnosis is really all about.

What is Hypnosis Used For? How do I Go About Using It?

Hypnosis is used for just about everything but this list is is dedicated to those things most directly related to self improvement topics.

  • Weight Loss
  • Smoking Cessation
  • Stress Management
  • Behavior Modification
  • Sports Performance
  • Business Performance
  • Achieving Goals
  • Social Interaction
  • Overcoming Fears
  • Pain Management

Hypnosis can be applied to just about anything.

There are many outlets to become involved in Hypnosis.

  • Check for Classes and Workshops run by professional Hypnotists. Weight Loss courses Stress Management, and Self Hypnosis courses are common. These courses are a great way to be introduced to Hypnosis and local Hypnotists. You can gain a great deal of self improvement tools from them.
  • Private Hypnosis sessions with a Certified Hypnotist are great for working on a specific issue. In sessions you will receive one on one attention, and focus to specific aspects of your particular issue. Private sessions are especially beneficial for chronic issues that one is aware of but just can not seem to figure out why the behavior persists.
  • There are always books and cd's that can be helpful aids. It is reccomended that you initially have a certified professional as a first step in exploring Hypnosis to really understand the process.

There is an organization called the NGH (National Guild of Hypnotists) that is devoted to ensuring the quality work provided by Hypnotists, it is highly recommended that when seeking a Hypnotist they are certified by and registered through the NGH.
