Barbecues Got You Down Because Your Weight Is Up?

Posted Posted in You Can Fix That

oh!Ah it’s summer barbecue time, which typically means plenty of friends, plenty of fun, and plenty of food.  But, it can also mean plenty of pounds!  At some point in your journey to become a slimmer, healthier you, you may have realized that dieting is merely a quick fix and does not address the longer term goal of losing weight and keeping it off.  This is where hypnosis for weight loss is at its best.

To better understand how hypnosis can be the tool to make lasting changes it is important to understand why many of us eat the way we do.  Early in our lives we learned to associate food with love.   We found comfort in our food and often chose high carb / high fat foods that temporarily raised our moods.  In essence, we were training our subconscious minds to protect us from hurting.  This began the pain / pleasure cycle that drives much of human behavior.  We do what we can to avoid pain and what brings pleasure.

This pain/pleasure cycle is also responsible for failed dieting.  Fad diets are quick fixes that all too often result in bounce-back weight gain.  The question is why?  The answer is found in understanding the way our minds work.  Will-power is a short-term.  The conscious mind deals with short-term feelings and events.  Lasting change, that is changing habits, requires learning techniques to tap into the subconscious mind, where all our habits and real learned skills reside.  Hypnosis provides us with the key to open our subconscious mind and replace negative thinking with positive.  No longer does that voice inside continue to sabotage with messages of “Why bother dieting when you know you are only going to fail, again!”  Through hypnosis, you are able to get to the root of the emotional eating and make lasting changes in your thoughts and behaviors.

We both know the time has come to be a happier, healthier you.  You know how much you have wanted to make these changes.  More importantly, you know that what you’ve been doing hasn’t worked.  You also know that so many others have found the answers to improving their lives through hypnosis. That is why you’re reading this.  Don’t wait another minute!  Contact me right now and see how, together, we can make that change lasting.  Email me at: info@hypnomarc.com or visit my website: www.hypnomarc.com.  Conveniently located in downtown Westfield with day, evening, and weekend hours available.

High Anxiety . . . College Admission Test Anxiety

Posted Posted in You Can Fix That

High anxiety is not just the title to the 1977 Mel Brooks homage to Alfred Hitchcock, but more accurately describes that “pit in the stomach” feeling that so many people get when having to take those all-important college entrance or promotional exams (SAT, ACT, LSAT, MCAT, GRE).  Sure, you’ve spent hundreds or thousands of dollars taking classes to get you ready.  You’ve spent weeks on practice exams and studying.  But, you can’t shake that uneasy feeling; the test anxiety that gets in the way of you performing your best.  You don’t want to walk out of that test saying . . . “I knew the answers to those questions!”

Studies have repeatedly shown that stress and anxiety are major contributors in our inability to recall important information at critical times.  The stress of achieving a score that makes you the optimal candidate for your new position or college entrance works against both the ability to learn and retain information, as well as the ability to easily recall it.  This is where hypnosis can be most beneficial.

Hypnosis provides you with the ability to reduce or eliminate stress so you are open to receive and effectively process the material you get from those prep classes.  More importantly, hypnosis to eliminate test anxiety provides you with the ability to recall and apply knowledge you have obtained throughout your experience, not just in your preparation classes.  This allows you to perform with confidence and at your best.  Contact me today to schedule your session and learn how to “Marshall the Power of Your Mind.”

With offices conveniently located in Westfield, NJ and Shaftsbury, VT you can finally feel confident.

I Believe that We Will Win!

I Believe. . .

The US Men’s Soccer Team (#USMNT) are through the infamous “Group of Death” and on to the round of 16.  So what could this possibly have to do with hypnosis and hyno-counseling?  I believe everything.  Hypnosis is a state of hyper-focus that gives those who experience it the ability to make positive changes in their lives.  These changes allow you to not only believe you will win, but provide you with the skills to succeed by removing self-doubt and failure loops in our thinking.

The chant … “I Believe that We Will Win…” is much more than a catchy slogan.  It is, in every sense of the word, a mantra that focuses the subconscious mind and raises the spiritual level of the players allowing them to rise to a level not envisioned by the pundits.  In the same sense, it is our own self-doubts that frequently sabotage our own abilities to make important and lasting changes in our lives.  We get into failure loops in our attempts to lose weight, stop smoking, deal with phobias and fears, or to heal from the traumas of life.  Our minds are incredibly powerful.  The challenge, however, is that we must learn the techniques of by-passing that self-doubt and replacing our “stinkin thinkin” with a confidence that can be quickly gained through hypnosis.

Are you ready to get through the doubters and “Group of Death”?  Are you ready to get that promotion; to stop smoking; or lose and keep off that excess weight?  Are you ready to find the power within you to believe that you can win? Right now you can make that decision a reality!

Right now you can take the action to become the person you want to be!  Right now, I BELIEVE THAT YOU WILL WIN!  I BELIEVE THAT WE WILL WIN! Be that winner and set an appointment with me to set those changes in motion.
