Changing Bad Habits with Hypnosis-September Newsletter

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.

Featured Trance for September: STOP COMFORT EATING

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.

September's FREE HYPNOSIS MEET UP-Changing Habits with Hypnosis

Bad habits-how do we get them? More importantly, how do we change them!?

We be discussing habit formation, how to get to the core of what your habits are doing for you, and how to easily establish new habits with the hypnotic arts.

Featured Trance of the Month-Public Speaking

Overcome Public Speaking Fear Today-From our Affiliate Hypnosis Downloads!


Note from tampa Bay Hypno-Therpay, LLC: These audios are offered as a low cost option and introduction to hypnosis. They are generalized direct suggestion recordings. If they do not do the trick, don't give up on hypnosis, you probably just need a little individualized attention!

Banish speaking anxiety and nerves with hypnosis

Public speaking confidence is an audio hypnosis session that will completely retrain your brain to be comfortable and confident (and only a little excited) when in front of an audience.

Is public speaking fear your biggest fear?

Does even the thought of standing up in front of an audience bring you out in a cold sweat?

You are not alone! Surveys of people's worst fears consistently rank giving presentations and speeches in the number one position. More frightening than jumping out of a plane at 20,000 feet. Into a swamp full of man eating alligators.

Ridiculous, isn't it?

What could be safer than standing in a room full of (mostly) friendly people and sharing information and ideas with them? Especially if you know your stuff and have done all the 'right' things in preparation? Yet here you are, acting like twenty man eating alligators are snapping at your knees. Share information? Speak coherently and intelligently? You must be kidding! I gotta run! Now!

How does this happen?

How public speaking fear works on you

For one reason or another, your brain has learnt to provide you with the wrong unconscious response when you speak in public.

Instead of getting just the right amount of adrenaline and excitement to optimize your performance, you get a fear response like you're being attacked by a wild animal.

The good news is, this piece of 'faulty wiring' can be fixed. And much more easily than you might expect.

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

Feel a very welcome lessening of tension generally in your life (that old fear had its hooks everywhere) Notice that the thought of making a presentation or anything similar no longer troubles you Feel comfortable with the idea that you don't have to be perfect to be good Begin to feel a deep implicit trust in yourself to speak well, no matter what happens Start actually looking forward to having more opportunities to speak Enjoy that little spurt of adrenaline that signals that you are now ready to get out there and speak. Download Public speaking confidence and let your audience know what you want to tell them.

The Power of Shifting Your Perspective

Today was the absolute worst day ever

And don’t try to convince me that

There’s something good in every day

Because, when you take a closer look,

The world is a pretty evil place.

Even if

Some goodness does shine through once in a while

Satisfaction and happiness don’t last.

And it’s not true

Its’s all in the mind and heart


True Happiness can be attained

Only if one’s surroundings are good

Its not true that good exist

I’m sure you can agree that

The reality


My attitude

Its all beyond my control

And you’ll never in a million years hear me say that

Today was a good day.

Now read this from bottom to top.
