Downsizing at Large Group Seminars is Unlikely to Be Successful in the Long Run
Kitty says Pawsitively no to Downsizing with Group Hypnosis
I joke about how people expect to “Downsize” quick, fast, and easily, but the reality of it is that we are all very different people.
Even cats are different from each other. Some sit around all day and will eat, eat, eat, and others will roam and explore and just nibble all day.
I never promote, or even recommend, seminars to lose weight specifically. Don’t expect to downsize at them, but they can have benefit from an informational standpoint.
Big groups are too impersonal to be able to help everyone in the room.
Get the help you need individually, and you’ll stand a better chance to keep the weight off
Sometimes I come across a hypnosis seminar in the news, and like getting my two cents in there about
the importance of one-on-one sessions instead of those big groups.
We are all different people, and the person sitting next to you at one of those seminars may have completely different reasons, or triggers, for over eating.
Get some information, then seek out a hypnotist or hypnotherapist for individual sessions.
She suggested to those taking part in a demonstration last week that they get comfortable. They would go into a heightened state of consciousness, she said, and would not lose consciousness. Everyone was asked to close their eyes and relax, while she counted to three slowly.
“You will go into a state of peacefulness, Imagine every time you breathe, you are in a wave of peace. The ocean of peace is to the right and the left of you, connecting you to a life force that is all around you.
Remember that people are different, and we all have different reasons for being overweight
These specific triggers are different for most people. That’s what makes us unique, just like our pets.
Who knows, maybe your cat is copying your behavior. My dog sure did.
