Make Resolutions Stick with Your Hidden Power

Dec 31, 2012 05:39PM ● By Sue Sawyer

The top ten resolutions for 2012 were to socialize more, get fit and lose weight, quit smoking, enjoy life more, quit drinking, get out of debt, learn something new, help others and to get more organized. Yet most people have given up on those resolutions by the third week in January.

Your conscious, everyday mind is the part of your mind that controls will power. It is also the part of your mind that is very analytical and judgmental and tends to “get in the way” of making changes. However, each one of us possesses a “secret weapon” that can help us build the life we really want for ourselves…and that secret weapon is our subconscious mind.

This part of your mind is extremely powerful and very creative. One of the most interesting aspects of the subconscious mind is that it doesn’t know the difference between fantasy and reality. This makes it easy for you to implement the changes you want quickly and without a lot of angst.

We all go in and out of hypnosis (aka: altered state of consciousness) every day of our lives. Athletes refer to it as “going into the zone.” Many of us have experienced “road hypnosis” where you suddenly find yourself having arrived (safely) at your driving destination without a conscious memory of the trip. Still others have been hypnotized while in church, listening to a favorite piece of music or even reading an interesting book or article.

To make desired changes, a hypnotist can guide you to actualize those changes quickly and easily by changing unwanted thoughts, feelings or behaviors into positive and beneficial ones by attending just a few sessions. Unlike other modalities, the average number of sessions needed to change a single issue is only three.

Make friends with your subconscious mind and make your New Year resolutions happen.
