People keep asking me this question: Does hypnosis work for weight loss? And as much as I would love to say: YES, IT DOES, the answer is much less satisfying: It depends. I’ll reference some scientific studies on this later on, but before doing so, I want to cover an important distinction you need to make.

Hypnosis won’t help you to magically get in shape while no other part of your life changes. If you keep eating the way you’ve always eaten, if you don’t live a more physically active lifestyle, hypnosis won’t help you shed all these pounds.

That is for example why MayoClinic does not recommend hypnosis for weight loss—because they took it out of the larger context of life and examined whether hypnosis works without any behavioral changes:

Most studies showed only slight weight loss, with an average loss of about 6 pounds (2.7 kilograms) over 18 months. But the quality of some of these studies has been questioned, making it hard to determine the true effectiveness of weight-loss hypnosis.

Weight loss is usually best achieved with diet and exercise.

I couldn’t agree more, BUT…

Hypnosis can be very effective for weight loss by helping you to make the behavioral changes that will result in weight loss easier.

How does hypnosis work for weight loss?

A study conducted in 2014 found that hypnosis helped women improve their eating behavior, body image, BMI, and weight.

That’s why Harvard Medical School psychotherapist Jean Fain advises you to use mental imagery guided by hypnosis to change your behavior. Think about it: advertisements for a pizza or a burger, or whatever your craving of choice, can make you feel like you want to eat it. But you can also use the power of your imagination to change the craving—to change how you feel about that food.

We all know how difficult it is to change your eating habits. We all know how difficult it is to be physically active on a regular basis over a long period of time. Changing your behaviors is what’s so difficult. Breaking out of the emotional pattens you’ve lived with for so many years is what’s difficult. And that’s exactly where hypnosis can help.

Because the hardest part about sticking to a diet and becoming more physically active is to establish it as a habit that comes natural to you. The hardest part is to be able to resist your cravings when you feel like you really need it.

Whatever it is that you crave—chocolate, ice cream, chips, a burger, fries, bread, pasta—will you give in to that craving or are you able to overcome that impulse and instead make a healthier choice?

And that’s where hypnosis can really help.

Does weight loss hypnosis really work?

The short answer is: Yes. But make sure to approach it with realistic expectations, and understand what hypnosis actually is. Hypnosis won’t magically do it for you. It’s not like some hypnotist suddenly takes control of your mind and manipulates you into eating healthy and exercising regularly. There is no “lose weight overnight subliminal hypnosis” session that will usher in a magical body transformation—and honestly, if anyone makes you these promises, I would advise you to stay away from them.

hypnosis for weight loss Even with hypnosis, you are still the one in control. And that also means that you are still the one responsible. It’s extremely important that you do take responsibility and ownership. Hypnosis is just a method that helps you to do this better.

A study conducted in 1986 found that hypnosis for weight loss helped overweight women lose 17 pounds, compared to 0.5 pounds for women who didn’t participate in the hypnosis program.

So if you are willing to change, and if you are willing to take charge of your health, then hypnosis will most likely work very well for you if you want to lose weight.

How much does hypnosis cost for weight loss?

Again, the answer really is it depends.The good news is that cost isn’t really a limiting factor when it comes to weight loss hypnosis. You don’t need to sign up for a lengthy treatment plan with a hypnotherapist. You can use self-hypnosis, in conjunction with a hypnosis recording from a reputable source, just as (if not more) effectively.

There are multiple options for you available:

The full package: $97
This consists of 10 hypnosis downloads that cover all the major aspects that lead to weight gain.

A single, focused hypnosis MP3:

As you can see, money is not an issue. In fact, you can even try all of these because you’re covered by a money-back-guarantee.

But before you get your hypnosis for weightloss download, it’s important that you do make a commitment to it. It’s not enough to buy these, download them and listen once. You actually need to make time in your schedule to listen to them on a regular basis. And that can’t be while you’re driving in your car on the way to work. You want a setting that allows you to stay fully focused and relaxed on the self-hypnosis session.

The best advice I have for you in this regard is to actually schedule this in your calendar—that’s what many of the people who successfully lose weight with this self-hypnosis program did. It takes less than half an hour per day, and listening to it when you go to bed can be a wonderful routine.

Social media addiction is a real thing—and the fact that a lot of people think it is not only makes it worse. They don’t consider it a problem at all. It’s just something people do nowadays. But it does have a heavy toll on people, individuall, and as a society.

Want to try hypnosis for social media addiction? Click here!

In this article we’re going to focus on the effects it has on individuals, and leave the part about society aside.

Causes of social media addiction

It’s not by accident that Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, WhatsApp and SnapChat are worth billions of dollars: They’re deliberately engineered to exploit the way our brains work. A lot of the top-level people who work on “growth” have one objective: make the app more addictive. And these are very smart people who have a lot of resources and a team of very smart people at their disposal to help. If you think that’s exaggerated, just watch this video, which shares talks from some of the people who worked on these social networking apps:

As you can see, the causes of social media addiction are simply that these apps are designed to tap into our neuro-chemical reward systems. The teams developing these apps really do know how to trigger a dopamine response in your brain. (Samsung even released a phone in 2018 that has no access to the internet especially for students who want to avoid online distractions.)

Here’s what Sean Parker, the founding president of Facebook, said not too long ago:

“The thought process that went into building these applications, Facebook being the first of them … was all about: ‘How do we consume as much of your time and conscious attention as possible?’ That means that we need to sort of give you a little dopamine hit every once in a while, because someone liked or commented on a photo or a post or whatever. And that’s going to get you to contribute more content and that’s going to get you … more likes and comments. It’s a social-validation feedback loop … exactly the kind of thing that a hacker like myself would come up with, because you’re exploiting a vulnerability in human psychology. The inventors, creators – me, Mark [Zuckerberg], Kevin Systrom on Instagram, all of these people – understood this consciously. And we did it anyway.”

So far for the bad news. Exploiting the way our brains work to “increase engagement” is ultimately what makes these companies valuable for their shareholders.

The good news is however that ultimately we are in charge of our own brains and can take control of what we do with them. And recognizing that you’re addicted to social media is the first step in overcoming the addiction. Once you have the awareness that it is a problem, you can take the next step and find a solution.

Hypnosis is a powerful way for social media addicts to develop a more healthy relationship to social networks. After all, the goal doesn’t have to be to completely stop using social networks. It’s simply to use it in a responsible way that does not have a negative effect on your life.

Social media addiction facts

  • 24% of teens go online “almost constantly” (2015-this number has more than likely increased in the past 3 years).
  • users aged between 15 and 19 spend at least 3 hours per day on average using platforms such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. [source]
  • 18% of social media users admitted that they cannot resist the urge to check out what’s hot on social media. [source]
  • 28% of people who have iPhones check their accounts on Facebook or other social networks right away after waking up in the morning [source]
  • The more frequently people go on Facebook and update their status the lower their self-esteem. [source]
  • Spending a lot of time on Facebook is related to low self-esteem. [source]
  • Social media platforms are using intermittent variable rewards to make their apps more engaging and addictive (according to a former Google designer) [source]

Here’s a video that explains what intermittent variable rewards are:

Social media addiction symptoms

There is no exact “checklist” or test to tell you whether you are a social media addict, but here are a few questions that can give you a good idea how serious your social media addiction is:

  1. Do you check social media first thing in the morning when you wake up?
  2. Do you constantly check notifications from social media apps?
  3. Do you feel a strong urge to immediately view the content of notifications from social media apps?
  4. Do you obsess over “likes”, “comments”, and “shares” of your posts? Do a lot of likes give you a feeling of elation, and does a lack of likes make you feel down?
  5. Do you compare yourself and your own life with the life other people display on their social media accounts?

Hypnosis for social media addiction

Hypnosis can help you break the cycle of social media addiction and be more centered. Rather than compulsively having to check your social media accounts, you can use them in a productive way and enjoy the benefits they bring to your life. You can stop obsessing about how others react to your posts, and what they think of you.

Social media can be a wonderful tool, and it’s a technology that you can use to better connect with people. But it’s important to practice healthy habits and not let social media use you.

Again, the point of this post is not a call for us to go back into the woods and abandon technology. It’s about learning to master technology, instead of it mastering us. And even some of the worlds most prominent thinkers in tech agree. Here’s what Apple CEO Tim Cook said: “I don’t have a kid, but I have a nephew that I put some boundaries on. There are some things that I won’t allow. I don’t want them on a social network.

I have had a problem with blushing for as far back as I can remember. The minute anyone said something slightly titillating or embarrassing to me, my face would turn as red as a fire truck.

downloadDownload: Hypnosis For Blushing

When I was younger I didn’t worry about it so much, but it gets to me now that I am an adult. I don’t like the idea that people can make assumptions about me based on my reactions to certain things.

The first time I decided I had enough was when I was asked about cheating by an ex-girlfriend’s mom.

I was so embarrassed that she would ask me such a personal question that I turned beet red.

She took this as an admission of guilt and convinced my girlfriend to end the relationship.

At first I was angry at her for not trusting me, but I realized that I would have come to the same conclusion if the shoe were on the other foot.

When I am in a situation where I know it is likely I will start blushing, I started willing my face not to change color. It wasn’t that easy, and I have continued to blush just as much, if not more.

Apparently the power of my thoughts is not enough for my face to remain its natural shade. This is one of the main reasons why I am single and I am currently working from home.

downloadDownload: Hypnosis For Blushing

Let me explain a bit more about the job front. I worked in sales for a while, but my facial expression kept giving information to the customers.

For example, when I tried to convince someone to buy something simply because it was expensive, they would notice me blushing and decide to buy nothing. This happened at several jobs in several different industries before I decided I would be better off working from home.

I live the life of a shut-in and I am just 28 years old. I figured there had to be other people out there that suffer from this same issue, so I did a search for it. As far as I can tell, there are a lot of people affected by this and many of them have talked about how hypnosis can make things all better.

I have never heard such a thing, but I see no reason why I should not give it a shot. If it stops me from blushing at any old time, I want to try it as soon as possible.

I thought I would have to go in to see some type of hypnotist and that made me a little nervous. I have seen plenty of shows where people are hypnotized into doing strange things, and it made me a bit wary.

It is actually possible to purchase audio that will allow you to perform the hypnosis on yourself. That is great since I would probably be too embarrassed to work with anyone else when it comes to this.

I got to say at first it was just very relaxing to use this hypnosis for blushing session, but I didn’t think it would be enough to help me really stop this.

But I kept at it, partly because it was just feeling nice to relax in this way, and probably also because my subconscious mind somehow told me: “You’re on the right path here, keep going.”

I listened to this hypnosis audio many times over the next weeks. And I didn’t notice that I was blushing less – but I was! After something like two months, I once thought for a while: “Hey, when was the last time that you blushed?” And the answer was it’s already been… well, weeks? This was pretty strange, because I used to blush daily before, for any little reason you could think of.

So if you have the same kind of blush face that I had, I can really recommend that you try the power of hypnotism 🙂

This impulse control hypnosis mp3 download will help you to get in charge of your emotions. Being emotional is not a bad thing – but being controlled by your emotional impulses, and not having the freedom to make a conscious choice, that’s not a good thing, and it can in fact wreck your life.

arrowImpulse Control Hypnosis MP3

Yes, it is important to listen to your heart. It’s important to listen to your heart. But if you…

  • let your heart rule your head and
  • it’s normal for you to be on a short fuse and
  • you overindulge and give in to temptations
  • you sometimes act like a 4-year-old (and can’t help it)

… well, then it’s really time to get a grip on things.

(Hint: things = yourself).

If you’re like most people I work with, then you’re a slave of your impulses. And you want to get back your freedom.

Because here is a very basic, simple, but profound fact of life:

Life is easy when you live it the hard way, but it is hard when you live it the easy way.

But when you’re governed by whim, sometime it’s even hard to think clearly. Because these tumultuous emotions and overwhelming impulses can cloud up your thinking.

And when you’re having a hard time to think straight, you’re having a hard time to do pretty much anything worth doing.

And you’ll probably say things that you will regret later on.

When you lack impulse control, it’s easy to get yourself into trouble.

arrowImpulse Control Hypnosis MP3

Bad impulse control is at the heart of addictions and compulsions – things that get people spinning out of control.

With hypnosis you can retrain your brain to balance out desire with reason, passion with logic, anger with calmness, frenzy with rationality.

Hypnotic training can help you to keep a cool head. And when I say training I mean it.

Because it’s important that you approach this with the right attitude. If you think hypnosis is somehow a magic bullet that will change your life overnight, well, there is a real possibility that it will take longer to develop good impulse control that you thought.

And you should really think of it as a training method, or a recondition program, rather than a quick fix. You will get the best results from this impulse control hypnosis MP3 when you listen to it every single day for three to six weeks.

The best time to listen is actually before you fall asleep or directly after you wake up – both of these times are the times when you can make the deepest impressions on your subconscious mind.

“It’s all right letting yourself go, as long as you can get yourself back.” ~Mick Jagger

I don’t know if you have heard about Dr. Milton H. Erickson?

He was one of the greatest hypnotherapists of all times, and he is pretty much the father of modern hypnotherapy. He had a very special way of using hypnotic trance states to initiate therapeutic change in people.

You see, when you use classical hypnosis, it’s a very authoritative approach. A therapist who basically tells you what to do.

Now this kind of hypnosis works well with some people, but it simply is too easy to develop resistance. And this is specially true for people who have low impulse control – I’m pretty sure that the authoritative hypnosis approach wouldn’t work well for you.

Ericksonian hypnosis is much more elegantly – it doesn’t use hypnotic commands, but rather simple suggestions, stories, relaxing words that will gently take your subconscious mind by the hand and walk along the path of personal transformation.

That’s why this hypnosis download for impulse control works so well – because rather than pushing or coercing or manipulating you, it’s about helping, supporting and advising you in a very effective manner. Your problem is that you can’t control your impulses.

But the solution is already within yourself – what you need is just a way to find access to that solution, and a way to make use of it.

And that’s what you find here:

There are a couple of things you should know when you’re looking for an erectile dysfunction hypnosis MP3. Yes, it is true that most cases of erectile dysfunction (ED) are caused by mental issues, not medical issues (which is a good thing – because it means they can be fixed without expensive treatments or medication!). But not every ED hypnosis MP3 will be effective – there are huge differences in quality.

downloadErectile Dysfunction Hypnosis MP3

When you go about choosing a provider of the audio hypnosis session, make sure that you chose a competent hypnotist. There are plenty of free downloads on the web which you can find with a simple google search – but most of them won’t get the job done and are made by amateurs who have no true expert knowledge, aren’t really professionally trained hypnotists and have very little or no experience dealing with real cases of ED.

In fact, because of the way hypnotic suggestions get processed by the subconscious mind, they could even make things worse. The most basic, yet still surprisingly common mistake many pseudo-hypnotists make is to use negation in the wrong places. Sentences like “you don’t need to worry about your sexual performance anymore” for example can be very damaging during a hypnosis session, even though on the surface they seem to be “good suggestions”. The problem is that the subconscious mind doesn’t process negations – so in order to understand and make sense of the previous suggestion, your subconscious mind needs to imagine you worrying about your sexual performance, and then someone negate that – which isn’t something the subconscious mind is really good at.

However, unless you want to spend a couple of years studying hypnosis and becoming a hypnotist yourself, it’s quite hard to be able to tell a good hypnosis MP3 from a bad one – so better go with trusted and reliable hypnosis download providers.

downloadErectile Dysfunction Hypnosis MP3

Erectile dysfunction is a serious issue, it’s not just about manly pride – it goes to the very heart of your being, your identity, your sense of self-worth and self-esteem. Sexuality is an important part of who we are as human beings and how we define our personalities. If that are of your life needs fixing, all other areas of your life will be affected in one way or another.

Statistics show that just in the USA around 15 million men suffer from ED.

You can achieve strong and manly erections that last long enough to satisfy your partner. With the help of hypnosis your subconscious mind can be retrained to let nature take its course – because in most cases the problem is simply too much mental interference. Reducing higher brain activity and instead increasing the amount of instinctive brain activity is enough to help you overcome impotence in most cases – and that’s why this hypnosis can be so powerful.

You can become a totally confident lover again. But simply listening to some hypnosis MP3 every now and then won’t be enough – you must really take time to regularly listen to it and allow yourself to take these 20 minutes a day where you won’t be distracted by other tasks or thoughts, free of disruptions. Give it a couple of weeks where you listen at least three times a week (ideally even daily) and you’ll see the magic happen.

If you want to become more successful in life, there’s probably nothing more important than to get rid of limiting beliefs. You see, all the information, all the know-how, all the technology to make money is out there. There are plenty of step-by-step guides that teach you how to make money and that actually do work. But you know what is strange? Most people who buy these systems and do these courses never achieve success, even if the techniques and methods work. Why? Because they are stuck in limiting beliefs. They have a low sense of self-esteem. They don’t believe in themselves.

Get rid of limiting beliefs and start to…

 Think Big

One of the reasons is that many people kind of got fed a negativity when they grew up. Maybe your parents, maybe your teachers, maybe your friends or family members – they just didn’t plant the seed of positivity in your mind at an early age.

And now you’re grown up, and you’ve got this limited mindset.

Maybe you believe it is difficult to make money.

Maybe you believe it is difficult to find fulfilling work.

Maybe you believe nobody likes you.

Maybe you believe you’ll never find the right person.

Maybe you’re caught in a web of scarcity, where there never seems to be enough for you to give you a good life.

But the universe is a place of abundance. Really.

And if you find a way to create more positive thoughts, you can find a way to tap into that abundance.

 Think Big

Yes, it still takes work. I’m not one of these people who say that you only have to think positive and suddenly a Ferrari parks in front of your door and you’ll find the keys in your mailbox.

But positive thoughts are a prerequisite to success and fulfillment.

If you don’t get rid of limiting beliefs, life will be a constant uphill battle.

Do you sometimes feel as if you’re swimming against the tide? As if you’ve got to put in so much effort to reap even the smallest reward?

It doesn’t need to be that way. You can go with the flow of abundance and experience the amazing joy of effortless success. Not effortless in a way that you don’t need to do anything, but effortless in a way that you can easily earn and get what you want in life, and do so with joy.

Big results come from big thoughts. Fruitless struggle is often a result of limited thinking. Don’t be a slave of small-mindedness. Be a master of imagination. Dare to dream big dreams that really motivate you.

Many times people advice you to set “small, realistic goals”. And while that advice has it’s merits, if your goals are too small, they won’t motivate you into taking the action that is required to pursue happiness and fulfillment. In order to find true joy you need to get rid of your limitations and then make a true choice. A choice not based on your idea of what is possible or impossible, or what’s attainable or realistic for you, but a choice based upon what it is you TRULY WANT.

So what are you waiting for? Get rid of limiting beliefs and start to…

 Think Big
