• Dick boasted while he ate a large slice of cake- “I didn’t need hypnosis to quit smoking, I quit through shear will power!”


    Now his “will power” may have stopped the smoking habit but apparently Dick had picked up another habit-eating!  For that matter, his finger nails were looking like what he fed on, when food was not available. To give Dick’s “will power” credit, that was some mighty powerful change but perhaps, not in the ways Dick had thought.

    It was immediately clear that he had a very determined mind; determined to CHANGE THE WAY HE FELT-SOMEHOW. That same determined mind was completely capable of ignoring the obvious, namely the 50 extra pounds he was carrying around his midline and the connection between all of this and having stopped smoking. Talk about some powerful Self-Hypnosis!

    Habits-whether thoughts, feelings and/ or behaviors- are not necessarily good or bad, they are just useful or not useful. You are your habits.


    And habits do change-think about it, you have been changing habits your whole life!


    And they change quickly, and easily, when your unconsciously held beliefs and values are in line with your consciously held goals. BUT when the unconscious has another agenda... well, “will power” alone is often not enough or ignores the deeper needs the habit was intended to address.

  • From our Affiliates at Uncommon Knowledge and Hypnosis Downloads: A trance that recognizes how habits serve purposes in our lives, even bad habits. Changing them is really a matter of finding more useful ways to get those same needs met. Remember, these are for general audiences. If it does not help as much as you want, we are here to help you get past your individual "stuckness".


    Escape the compulsion to make yourself feel better with food

    Do you turn to comfort eating more often than you would like?

    Are the costs outweighing the benefits?

    Life can be tough sometimes. And sometimes the things that make life difficult can go on for a long time. It's only human to want to help yourself feel better, and there's no getting away from it, what's easier to lay your hands on than what's in the fridge or food cupboard? Reaching for a tub of delicious ice-cream, a tasty deep base pizza or a packet of thick chocolate biscuits does not make you a bad person.

    But although you get the instant reward of the great taste or the satisfyingly filling sensation, you've already discovered that reaching out for those sweet, filling foods on a too regular basis is bringing other consequences that you're not so keen on. And making you an unhappy person.

    Which was why you reached out for them in the first place...

    It's a trap, isn't it?  But there is a way out.

    Hypnosis can help you overcome the habit of comfort eating

    Stop comfort eating is an audio hypnosis session created by psychologists with wide experience in helping people with the psychological side of healthy weight management. It uses the power of hypnosis to help you break out of the behavior patterns that seem to have such a grip on you.

    As you relax and listen repeatedly to your download, you'll notice that

    • the problems and challenges you're facing start to seem much less daunting you find yourself getting creative about developing real, practical solutions you develop a new relationship with your own emotions, and feel more at peace with them you find yourself naturally eating so much more healthily, and enjoying occasional treats without guilt or anxiety you feel much more relaxed and confident within yourself

    Download Stop comfort eating and take back control of your own life.

  • How quickly did this pandemic create new habits for you, have you noticed yet?Compared to last year, have you considered how different are your habits; of thinking, of feeling, and doing?

    While I would not wish 2020 on anyone, it was a wonderful example of an external event can motivate a change in our habits.

    And we are our habits of course. What we do over and over and over again, defines our lives.

    Which is great, as long as it is working for you.

    But when a habit is no longer possible (as in a pandemic, for example), is no longer useful (a bottle of wine every night, for example), no longer is serving us ( bad relationships, for example) or may even be hurting us ( feelings of low self worth or smoking, for example);


    And change is much easier with the right tools, easier when the unconscious mind is on board. Trance based approaches offer tools to facilitate change at a deeper level of mind, where it becomes “ automatic”; the same way the “ problem” habit is experienced today.

    You can learn more at our FREE, on-line, January meetup: “Changing Bad Habits; Hypnosis and Health”. https://www.meetup.com/TampaBayHypnotherapy-Community-Group/events/274775136/

    Sometimes, a good hypnosis download is all that is needed to get the unconscious “on board”, if you have specific habits you would like to change for 2021, why not explore our affiliate who offers over 1200 hypnosis downloads at really great prices?https://www.hypnosisdownloads.com/bad-habits?6081!top100

    If those bad habits persist; if your conscious mind wants to change but your habituated unconscious keeps doing something else- this is not failure, only feedback. Find someone you trust to work through whatever unconscious needs are being met by the thoughts, feelings or behavior.

    Of course, we are always honored when that someone you can trust, is us.

    Wishing you all a peaceful start to the New Year.

  • January 2020. How time does fly.

    If you could go back to speak to your younger self, what advice might you give?

    How would your life be different today, if you had accepted your older, wiser, more experienced, self’s advice?

    More importantly, here in 2020, are you living proof of your own best, “ lessons learned” and sage advice? If so, good for you!

    If you find it easier to know what other people should be doing, but are not actually doing it yourself; you are not alone.

    And you can change that!

    Contrary to popular psychology that says resolutions are a set up for failure...We DO support making resolutions for change and believe that a New Year, a New Decade, is a GREAT time to start your change…

    To accelerate you being your best version of you ever-you just have to have the right tools to make the change easy and permanent, and hypnosis is a fabulous tool for change.

    Join us for or FREE Hypnosis Meet Up, “Achieving Your 2020 Resolutions with Hypnosis; Hypnosis and Life Mastery” , Thursday-January 9th.
