Can I Be Hypnotized?

“Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t. You’re right.”  – Henry Ford

Hypnosis 101

Hypnosis is real. However it is not what you’ve seen on TV and in the movies. There is no “mind control” or anything absurd like that. As a hypnotist, I cannot make you quack like a duck, reveal secrets, give me your money, or do anything against your will. While you are hypnotized, you have a higher level of concentration and focus on your inner thoughts. You will only do and say what you want to do and say.

I perform a free screening and consultation with every client, just to see if hypnosis is will work for them and if they can be hypnotized. Many clients who come to see me, are not sure whether or not they will be hypnotized and if they can accomplish their goal. I explain to them that hypnosis can be a very effective tool whether their goal is to:

  • lose weight
  • quit smoking
  • break a habit
  • build confidence
  • reduce their stress
  • get over a fear

Results

Generally speaking, virtually anyone can achieve successful results using hypnosis. All hypnosis, whether it is accomplished with the aid of a hypnotist or not, is self-hypnosis. However in order for hypnosis to be effective, there must be a belief and expectation that it is going to work.

So only you can decide to let go, and allow yourself to be hypnotized. But the more that you let go, relax and follow instructions, the better chance you have of hypnosis working, and the more beneficial experience it will be for you.

Practicing Self-Care

“I see my body as an instrument, rather than an ornament.” – Alanis Morissette

It All Starts With You

Everything in your life starts with you. I have many clients who come to the Greater Toronto Hypnosis Centre office, because they are in need of fixing something about themselves. Whether they are trying to quit smoking, lose weight, increase their confidence, reduce stress, or get over some fear or performance anxiety, I explain to them that it all starts with YOU first. If you do not prioritize self-care and attention to yourself, then how can you possibly have enough resources to give to someone else (your kids, your job, your spouse, etc.)?

You Are A Priority

The idea of practicing self-care is not a new one…but it is one that not many consider as important as other things. Taking care of yourself must be a priority.  The analogy I use finds its roots from being a passenger on an airplane. Before the plane takes off, the flight attendants always go through the safety information. Included in this are the instructions that if there is a cabin air decompression, an oxygen mask drops down from above your head. They explain that you are to take the mask and put it on, and breathe normally. However the direction that many people miss is that if you are sitting beside a child or someone elderly, you are to put on your oxygen mask FIRST and then help them with theirs. The reason is that if you collapse from lack of oxygen, then you’re certainly no good to your companion to assist them in breathing. I find this example to be an ideal illustration of how you must practice self-care, and in life, put on your “oxygen mask” first before helping or doing for others. If you don’t take care of yourself and get sick because you’re working so hard for your company, then how are you to continue your job?

So the concept of self-care is one I talk to my clients about a lot. I explain that while taking care of others is important, they must prioritize THEMSELVES first. Take the time to be good to your mind, body and spirit, and then you can work on the issue that you’re trying to fix. If one of these self-care items involves kicking a habit, losing weight, getting rid of stress, etc., then hypnosis might be a perfect tool to help you do this.

What Do You Wish To Achieve And How Hypnosis Can Help

Start small, get the ball rolling, and just move forward to achieve the goal that you want.

Question: Do you know what the best thing about procrastination is?

Answer:  It always gives you something to do tomorrow.

Goals

We all have them. Some are big. Some are small. Some are short-term Some are long-term.

Often we feel that we are just coasting along with life, never really accomplishing what we want. We procrastinate, and don’t reach our full potential. The most amazing part is that while many will tell you what they don’t want in their life, they rarely can properly articulate what they DO want. If you keep focusing on what you don’t want, you actually will end up heading in that direction and attracting the negative energy.

As a driving instructor taught me about winter driving:  “If you’re in a skid, stop looking where you don’t want to go (i.e. the rapidly approaching snow bank). Instead keep looking to where you WANT to go, and steer in that direction.”

So the first thing to do when you want to achieve something is figure out what you really want. Make sure that your goals are realistic. If you try to set a goal that you know deep down is hopelessly not achievable, you will set yourself up for failure and disappointment. This could cause you undue stress and anxiety.

Try instead to aim for smaller and realistic goals such as:

-deciding to eat healthy snacks instead of junk.

-finding the time take a brisk 20 minute walk every 2 days.

-starting the search for a new job that will bring you more satisfaction.

-committing to spending more time each week with your family.

If you would like to make some changes to help you get what you want and achieve your goals, it is important to prepare and as well make plans for what you want. The idea is that you want to start small, get the ball rolling, and just move forward to achieve the goal that you want.

You have made the decision to go for your goal

Congratulations on taking a step that many never will, because they often aren’t ready to make choices to create change in their lives. After you’ve made the decision that you want to do something, hypnosis is a great way to help you achieve your goal. I’ve had many clients who have been successful at doing this.

Goal setting with hypnosis

The action of setting a goal is a very meaningful and powerful process towards your development and to help you evolve. Hypnosis allows you to get your subconscious engaged and in-sync with your conscious goals. By using hypnosis, you can also learn to relax and let go. You can then center yourself, and learn to cut out the “noise”, so that you can expand your imagination and thought process so you can better focus on what you want to achieve.

Hypnosis can help you take control of your own life! Why not see if hypnosis will work for you, motivate yourself, and help achieve your goals? Call now for your free 30-40 minute screening, and see if hypnosis is right for you:  (647) 210-8842

HOW WILL YOU KNOW IF HYPNOSIS WORKS

Image from: Hypnosis Help Info

I get such a great feeling seeing the changes in my clients, as they progress through their individual programs. For instance to witness the physical transformation of a weight loss client as they drop the pounds and tone-up, is amazing. Or observing people who come to have me help relieve their stress with hypnosis; I love seeing their newfound relaxed demeanor and energy as they go through their program.

Examples:

Sometimes it is common for clients not to  notice or feel their changes right away. However; other people in their lives (family, friends and co-workers) see the changes in them, but they may take a little while to see it themselves. It does happen eventually. It really is the absolute best experience when my clients express how they themselves notice their transformations.

In one case, I had a client who recently quit smoking with hypnosis. She noticed how they could suddenly smell things that they never realized they hadn’t smelled during the years they smoked. She went out to eat Dim Sum for the first time as a non-smoker, and was amazed at the aromas she inhaled — something she had totally forgotten from her childhood when she wasn’t a smoker!

Another client who came to me for help with relieving stress in his life, was incredible to watch as he progressed through his program. Each session he acted more and more relaxed; a stark contrast to the fidgety and nervous person I met during our initial meeting. About halfway through his program, he proclaimed that he was seeing huge changes each day, and loved the newly enhanced life he was experiencing!

So if you have some issues and/or habits that you would like to change, why not see for yourself how hypnosis may be able to help.

A NEW, POSITIVE RELATIONSHIP WITH EXERCISE AND FOOD

Now that the holiday season is behind us, it’s time to look forward to the warmer weather that will (eventually) be here. One of the biggest concerns that many have at this time of year is losing weight—especially getting rid of the pounds that they put on during their holiday meals. 
Whether you’re trying to get healthier, look and feel better, or just want to fit into that bathing suit at the beach this summer, losing weight can be a long and challenging journey. If you have tried and failed to lose weight in the past, you know how frustrating it can be. It is quite common for people to get into a cycle of dieting, then overeating, and then feeling guilty, and dieting again. This “yo-yo dieting” as it’s known, is not only unhealthy, but makes any long-term weight loss very difficult to sustain. Fad diets, nutritional plans and supplements focus on what you put into your mouth and also how often. However, hypnosis is much different.
Hypnosis changes how you FEEL about what and when you eat. As an example, on a diet you might eat an apple, and be unhappy because you wish you were in fact eating an apple pie. But with hypnosis, you can learn to enjoy the apple and simply not give it another thought. What a strange concept:  living in a world where you’d happily turn down your favourite food for something that is healthier for you! With certain hypnosis techniques it may very well be possible to change your patterns of thinking, and get control over your cravings in a way that doesn’t depress you.
Using hypnosis, we target the unconscious mind with powerful suggestion techniques and help you to develop a new, positive relationship with exercise and food. The way a weight loss client recently described it was:  “I now look at the donut that I normally would crave and want, and just say, ‘Oh yeah, it’s a donut, but I don’t feel like eating it.’ and then I just walk away and don’t really think about it any more.”
To lose weight and keep it off, you cannot just go on an eight-week purge, or an intense exercise regime, or a fad diet, and then go back to your previous habits. Instead you have to make real lifestyle changes. This is where hypnosis may have a major advantage over other techniques, and the reason is that in order to change your body, you first need to change your mind. The aim with hypnosis techniques is to make you feel confident about yourself and your body, to alter any negative thoughts about eating, and to help you to lose weight in a healthy and responsible way without impacting your emotional well-being.
Hypnosis is completely safe, and you cannot be made to do anything against your will; it is not possible to get “stuck” in a state of hypnosis. Hypnosis is a positive, relaxing, safe and enjoyable experience.
One question that is often asked is, “Will hypnosis work for me?” Generally speaking, virtually any person can achieve successful results with hypnosis. However we carefully screen each client to ensure that hypnosis will be beneficial to him or her. The best part about this screening process is that it is FREE! If we do not feel that hypnosis will be beneficial for you, then we will tell you so. As you can see, you have nothing to lose by calling and starting to improve yourself right now.
People are losing weight, stopping smoking and relieving stress with the programmes offered with hypnosis.
So keep your New Year’s Resolution! Call us now and book your FREE screening, and find out how hypnosis can help you!
