So, the question is, how badly do you want permanent change? Maybe you are struggling with weight loss, maybe you desire relief from illness or pain, maybe it’s time to quit smoking for good. Let’s talk weight loss for a moment.
Many weight loss challenges have their base in security within. Security is attained through familiarity. That which is familiar to the person is secure. And when a person lives their life in a familiar way, same job, same routine, similar experiences, it is a very secure place to reside. However, there may come a time when things in life need to change, such as in losing weight. Sometimes, life in this familiar, secure environment just isn’t acceptable anymore. And these challenges can force the person into needing change to happen. That can be scary for those who really value the feeling of security and familiarity.
If the weight could be permanently reduced within the familiar secure environment, great. However, weight loss, as well as other health problems, most likely will require an inner change for the person. The part of the person that values security and does not want change, could be standing in the way of the change that person desperately wants and needs to make.
If the part that doesn’t want change stays where it is, there will be NO CHANGE within. The person can go through all the pills, the diets, even weight loss surgery, and any change will be temporary. It MUST be that way, because the part that is resistant to change is ruling. The person knows this, as they have not yet found permanent weight loss success. (Now, this scenario is a general rule of thumb. For each individual case, there may be conflicting parts that have concerns, OTHER than simply resisting change. The variety of reasons for the conflicting part is endless. However, the need for security is quite often linked to weight loss challenges.)
So how does one overcome this and help to make thing happen? Stephen Parkhill, author of “Answer Cancer”, is a sort of a miracle man who has helped thousands of people overcome cancer and chronic illnesses through hypnosis. In his book, Stephen says:
“When a person has a problem, there are only two agencies anywhere that know the cause and cure for that problem—God and the person’s subconscious mind. Go anywhere else for answers and we’re wasting time.”
When the subconscious is enacted, the resisting part is brought out and has the opportunity to be fully heard. Compromises may need to be enacted, as mediation from a hypnotherapist skilled in parts therapy will provide for inner resolution. Success is then sure to follow once all parts are in harmony and not conflict.
Unlike many hypnotists and other healing/helping people, a hypnotherapist with this skill can easily get to the deeper issues and help to resolve them--with the client’s cooperation, commitment, and willingness to go out of their comfort zone. With the trust that they are in good hands, the client is on their way to successful and permanent weight loss.
So the question is, how badly do you want permanent change?
