Wikipedia says “Contrary to a popular misconception—that hypnosis is a form of unconsciousness resembling sleep—contemporary research suggests that hypnotic subjects are fully awake and are focusing attention, with a corresponding decrease in their peripheral awareness. Subjects also show an increased response to suggestions.”
I have purchased two of Glenn Harrold’s apps and am giving them a go. Even if they do not actually help with weight loss, his soothing voice with the soft British accent helps me relax so I can fall to sleep easier. :)
The two apps I have are Lose Weight and 741hz Solfeggio Sonic Meditation.
The 741 is a combination of Glenn’s hypnosis and music by Ali Calderwood based on the ancient solfeggio musical scale. You can read more about this here: http://www.hypnosisaudio.com/product/741hz-solfeggio-meditation-expression-communication-370
I am also reading about the solfeggio scale in other places because it intrigues me. Not that I believe it works, but I find the concept pretty interesting and I don’t think it does harm either. Music is very moving in general in so many ways. Some music makes you want to move, some music can affect your libido, and other music can be soothing and lulling. I’m not sure it can heal you or make you lose weight, but it is pleasant to listen to.
I have lost a lot of my impulse to eat junk food and for emotional eating in general in the last week or so. Is it because of the apps? Can’t say for sure. It could be that as I force myself to stick to a healthier regime, I am becoming more accustomed to this and developing healthier habits. But I want you to know that a full box of donuts were passed around our workplace Tuesday morning followed by pizza at noon in celebration of National Rehabilitation Month and I had no desire to indulge in either. I got out the lunch I brought with me and ate it with no problem and without a feeling of being deprived.
At night I will often eat my supper and immediately crave something sweet afterwards. Last night after eating my supper I had a mental discussion with myself weather or not I wanted something sweet. Even something healthy like an apple. I was trying to decide if I really wanted to stop what I was doing to bother with eating something sweet just because that was what I always did. I was even arguing with myself that if the desire was not there and I did not really want it, why add the calories? Not adding them will help with the weight loss.
I think maybe the apps are helping. Can’t prove it, but I just feel like they are. I am not saying you should all go buy these apps, you have to decide how you feel about such things. But I think I will continue to listen to them. They do no harm and they may be doing good. *note to self…you need another topic to write about now don’t you?* I will do some research on other subjects this afternoon, but first I want to pick some pecans up from under our trees. Have a great afternoon!
