Only eight percent of people who make New Year’s Resolutions actually keep or achieve them, according to recent studies.
One tool that can make it easier for people to keep and succeed with their resolutions is Hypnosis. Many people are using it to eliminate negative beliefs, create positive ones and increase motivation.
“Hypnosis is not like what you see in the movies and on TV,” said Master Hypnotist Diane Edwards, CMH, owner of Hypnosis Groups and CEO of The San Diego Hypnosis Clinic. “It is not a form of mind control. It is a natural state that we all experience several times a day.”
The use of hypnosis is gaining traction from many members of the medical community. Hypnosis is widely used in Europe for anesthesia. The Stanford (University) Center for Integrative Medicine website states that hypnosis can be used for: “pain and physical symptom control, smoking control, procedural anxiety management, medical treatment side effects such as nausea and vomiting, stress management, phobias and stress-related neurological problems.”
According to the Mayo Clinic website, “Hypnosis can be used to help you gain control over undesired behaviors or to help you cope better with anxiety or pain. It’s important to know that although you’re more open to suggestion during hypnosis, you don’t lose control over your behavior.”
In fact, people experiencing hypnosis are usually aware of everything that is going on. Some examples of the spontaneous hypnotic state are similar to playing or listening to music, reading an enjoyable book or watching television.
It is wildly popular with the general public for successful weight loss, quitting smoking and stress reduction.
“The reason it’s so tough for people to keep their resolutions is that their subconscious programming sabotages them,” Edwards said. “Hypnosis can help you to change those negative beliefs to much more positive ones, so that it becomes easier to achieve your goals, whatever they might be.”
Diane is offering small workshops in San Diego to help people make and keep their resolutions. For more information, visit http://hypnosisgroups.com
