Hypnosis scripts help those seeking help from hypnosis to lose weight by providing a pre-written guide to a self-hypnosis session. These scripts can also be used by hypnotists to read to subjects during a hypnosis therapy session. Hypnosis scripts are the framework for a hypnosis session because they outline the important mental exercises and suggestions that aid in reprogramming the mind to assist in weight loss.
Writing a hypnosis script for weight loss is easy and can be done by anyone, not just professional hypnotists or hypnotherapists. There are a few keys steps to follow when writing a weight loss hypnosis script:
1.Decide what you want to concentrate on with the weight loss hypnosis script. For some, the issue will be emotional eating. For others, the issue will be motivation and exercise. Determine what main issue you would like to deal with throughout the hypnosis script so that your embedded commands, suggestions, and positive affirmations will all be consistent in dealing with the issue.
2.Choose a type of hypnotic induction to begin your hypnosis script. A hypnotic induction quickens the relaxation process and brings the mind into a state of deep relaxation. In this state, deep levels of consciousness can be reached, allowing for a very receptive learning state. Popular hypnotic inductions involve things like counting backwards, fixed eye inductions, visualizations of calming objects and situations, and deep breathing.
3.The bulk of the weight loss hypnosis script will deal with the issue you chose in Step 1. Begin the hypnosis script by describing the problem and how it affects the body and mind. This description should concentrate on feelings, habits and behaviors. An example would be “Food will not determine your level of happiness or satisfy your emotional desires.” Implanting these thoughts early in the hypnosis script will allow the subconscious mind to reflect on these statements and then build new thoughts and mental skills for dealing with food and weight loss later in the script.
4.Build up the hypnotic script by using powerful imagery and visualizations. These can range in nature depending on the issue being dealt with. For example, if the issue is exercise, a situation should be constructed using very vivid words that will conjure up and image of a person running on the beach or being in total control of their body. If over eating is the issue, an image could be described where a person is driving a car with a full tank of gas and does not need to fill the tank again until most of the gas has been used. Forming these parallels between images and real life will assist the mind in building connections between thoughts and actions.
5.Include suggestions and commands wherever possible. Direct suggestions and commands should be repeated often throughout the script to encourage the mind to reflect back to the commands when fully awake. These suggestions and commands should be embedded within the words, visualizations and imagery throughout the script. For example, an embedded command could be to say “STOP” whenever you have an urge to eat when you are not hungry. Another example could be to provide options for redirecting the feelings that cause over eating or night snacking, such as taking a walk whenever the urge happens.
6.Wrap up the hypnosis script by again touching on the key issue of the problem and healthy ways to deal with the issue. The end of the hypnosis script should be full of positive affirmations so that the hypnotized person leaves the session feeling happy, calm, empowered and confident that they can lose weight for good.
Hypnosis scripts are useful for weight loss because they train the mind to think about food and exercise in a new way. These thoughts and new mental skills developed during hypnosis will affect the daily life and behaviors that the person exhibits in regards to food and exercise. Hypnosis scripts for weight loss also deal with the emotional component of weight loss to build confidence and self-esteem.
