4 Steps to Using Hypnosis to Lose Weight Permanently

You don’t have to believe in electricity for it to work. All you have to do is plug in the lamp and turn on the switch.

What if you and I are the lamps, the subconscious mind is the power and intentional hypnosis and self-hypnosis is the switch?

What if there were some amazing, miraculous latent power inside of you that is just waiting to be tapped? There is! It’s the power of your subconscious mind.

Hypnosis is a way to tap into that extraordinary healing power in your subconscious. In my experience with my own self-hypnosis practice, I am tapping not only into my own subconscious mind, but beyond, to the Higher Intelligence that powers all of life. This is where real change can occur.

In my hypnosis practice with others, it’s incredibly rewarding and humbling to reach deep inside myself and seek the words, suggestions and images that will speak directly to the subconscious mind of the person or group that is being “hypnotized.” The goal is always to create lasting and profound change.

To me, hypnosis is a form of prayer. It’s a mystery, not in the sense that it’s magic, but in the sense that it’s mystical because it transcends the realm of ordinary consciousness.

The outcome of hypnosis and self-hypnosis is often similar to the outcome of any prayer. Things change in our inner and outer worlds, after hypnosis, in a way that often defies explanation.

In the area of weight loss, it’s only a change in consciousness and perspective that can truly bring about the permanent change that you are seeking.

It breaks my heart to hear people recant to me all the diets they’ve tried and how much they have struggled in this area of their life.

I, too, was one of those people who struggled with my weight, dieting, food addiction and even eating disorder, so I truly understand.

But the way out that I discovered wasn’t the fact that I found the perfect diet, after all. That’s because there is no perfect diet. Ultimately, success in this area of my life requires what all success does. An awareness of the results I’m getting versus my actions, and changing those behaviors (what and how I’m eating) based on the results I want.

That sounds simple enough, but when you’re following someone else’s diet, you are not listening to your body, but rather you are trying to force an outcome with a pre-determined set of actions.

What I mean is that you’re going to eat whatever you’re “supposed to eat” based on this diet, regardless of what your own body is trying to tell you.

What does this have to do with hypnosis as a way to tap into the power of the subconscious mind? Everything. You can’t change your actions until you change your thoughts about yourself and the way you see life.

Ultimately, the change in your consciousness achieved with hypnosis creates a whole new way for you to relate to your life circumstance—in this case, your relationship with food.

The hypnotic conditioning can help you change your whole orientation from, “How little do I have to eat to lose weight?” which never works in the long run because you end up feeling deprived, denied and bingeing, to “What does my body need to be healthy?”

Asking your subconscious that question while you are in a hypnotic state, your perfect food plan and lifestyle, for health, is revealed to you.

When that shift in awareness occurs at the deepest level, your whole experience is transformed.

The download of information you need, to learn what will ultimately work for you in this area of your life so that you can finally be free from struggle and feel at peace, may be overt, like a message falling out of the sky, or it may be quite subtle.

As you listen with your inner ear, you’ll receive messages that guide you to a new way of relating to yourself and food. This then makes you more receptive to the positive suggestions in the hypnosis. Here are the 4 steps to making this successful shift:

  1. The Awakening

You get to a point where you realize that there is an Intelligence deeper within you that is trying to reach you—to help you.


  1. The Seeking

You go within through hypnosis as a form of prayer and, with sincerity, you ask to be shown a new way to live, think and be.


  1. Receptivity

Drop deeper into a hypnotic state and open to receive the download of information that wants to be revealed to you.


  1. Positivity

Flood your mind with positive suggestion to override the negative habitual thoughts and beliefs that have been dominating your psyche.


Like prayer, hypnosis is not a one-time thing. It’s a way of life and a practice of going within and connecting to the deeper layers within yourself. If you never turned the switch on your bedside lamp, you’d never know the miracle of electricity. You may even say that you don’t believe electricity exists because you’ve never seen it.

Suspend disbelief and go within yourself to discover the miracle of your higher, deeper, wiser self and the infinite power of your subconscious mind to give you everything you need to turn your life around.
