Why You Can’t Lose Weight—It’s Right Under Your Nose?

A prestigious business in search of a new CFO tapered its candidates down to two persons of interest. Still undecided, the owner of the business took the candidates out to dinner at a lovely restaurant. Both candidates dressed appropriately. Each asked the perfect questions, creating wonderful and thoughtful conversations. Each of the candidates were compassionate and also passionate about life and the company’s core values. The owner was betwixt as to which one he should hire, that is, until the main course arrived.

One candidate waited until the host picked up his fork to begin eating. She tasted the food. Delighted that the chef had seasoned the dish perfectly, she continued to eat.

The other candidate also waited for the host to pick up his fork, but before this candidate tasted her food, she salted it.

In that moment the owner decided to hit the candidate that tasted the food before she had salted the food.

I remember this story from when I first began interviewing for jobs at 20 years old, fresh out of college. I can’t ever remember being wined and dined to get a job position, but I always understood the concept that you must first test or try what you are doing, before you make a judgment. (cont. below)

(Below is a hypnosis meditation designed to help release anything, including weight.)

 

With that being said, I have been one who consistently salted my food, usually after I tasted it. I never seemed to get enough salt. In fact, as a chef understanding the need for proper seasoning, spice, and herbs, I always insisted that I had to have a certain amount of salt in my food to taste the spice.

By 50 I was having heart problems, even though I am a health fanatic. I chalked it up to all of my family having heart conditions. Doctors asked if I ate too much salt, but I never considered my usage of salt to be on overkill. That is, I never considered my salt intake until I got married to a man who doesn’t salt his food at all, and who would consistently look at me like I had killed my food ever time I put salt on it (even though, most of the time I was the one who seasoned the food we were eating).

After much discussion about it, I decided I would go salt free for a month and see what happens. Everything tasted completely bland and flavorless to me. It was as if I was just eating for sustenance and nothing else. Interestingly enough, though, four great things happened in that difficult month:

  1. I ate about half the food I normally eat;
  2. I lost weight;
  3. my arthritic condition lessened considerably; and
  4. I was able to wean off of 3/4 of my heart medication.

All of this came from limiting salt intake.

After the first month, I decided that I would add a bit of salt back into my diet. I chose pink Himalayan salt and kosher rock salt with Iodine for the two types of salt I would use. Also, I added Bragg’s liquid aminos, coconut aminos, and some low sodium soy sauce or tamari to some of my food, especially of the Asian variety.

I initially noticed that the amount of salt I needed was minimal to none. I had truly gotten used to tasting the true taste of food and spice. However, I would get a very good idea of the amount of salt that I stopped when I would go out to dinner. I consistently would get bloated and often would eat way too much.

I’ve always have known that sugars are addictive, but I’m going to go out on a limb and say that for me, salt was way more addictive. I can understand now why I could sit down to watch television and eat and entire bowl of potato chips, popcorn, or any other salty food. Eating salt, just makes you want to eat more salt.

One other thing I noticed on this endeavor was that I should never eat any food when I am:

  1. watching television;
  2. working;
  3. sitting at my computer; or
  4. doing anything that requires my full attention.

I hope this helps you.

Hypnosis Helps Millions Lose Weight!  

Over the past 20 years, many studies have shown the #Hypnosis_weightloss is by far the most effective way to change negative habits into positive ones? Why?

(Actual Client pictured) In the past 30 years, Bo Sebastian has helped thousands of people lose 10-150 pounds by altering brain waves that keep clients from caring for their unhealthy bodies. Their brains have learned by rote and negative input how to act and react. As a Clinical Hypnotist, Sebastian effectively gets inside the maze of negative thinking and recreates a pathway of positive thinking by using a combination of Neural Linguistic Programing, Positive Reinforcement and Hypno-therapeutic techniques.

As the body enters somnabulance (or a dream state), the Observer Mind awakens. This is the same state of mind yogis and meditation users access to create peace and also to download wisdom and perspective into the human brain from the One Source, One Mind. To make effective change, one MUST access and rewrite the pattern from within this State of Mind to effectively see change in the body and physical out of the brain.

 

Upon awakening, ultimately the hypnotist will lay down new wiring for the brain that operates from a metaphoric light switch (or trigger) that is initiated through touch or a verbal cue, creating a brand new CHOICE. Each time you choose the new neural-pathway, you strengthen the new thought paradigm.

Bo Sebastian has worked for 30 years as one of the most successful hypnotists in the business and has also written 16 books on health and effective change—physical, mental, and spiritual. His latest book: Your New Story, Your New Life is available now. Sebastian also has an office in Fort Lauderdale and sees private clients In-office and On-line.

Thank you for your gift of buying this important book! It will change your life.

A FREE HYPONSIS MP3 TO HELP YOU DURING TIMES OF PAIN. SEND THE RECEIPT TO bosebastian5@gmail.com and I’ll send the Mp3 within the week, I promise.

3 Ways that Guilt Can Weigh You Down

I read an article in Huffington Post written by Carolyn Gregoire that suggests the emotion of guilt can actually make you gain weight! She goes even further to state that two other ways guilt can block the good in your life is that it contributes to depression and makes you procrastinate more.

I’ve never been one to act on guilt, generally. But after I read the article, I thought about the times in my life that I have, and how it contributed to depression and negative thoughts. I don’t believe, for me, gaining weight was a factor.

Family is probably the prime contributor to guilt, especially mothers. I know too many matriarchal queens who wield the power of guilt on their very prone children. My mom sulks when she doesn’t get her way. In times of old, I would simply think: well, it would take less energy to do what she asks, then actually confront her and bitch about it.

But now when she sulks, I simply say, “Are you enjoying that sad feeling? It’s causing you stress, but it’s not changing a thing for me. If you want or need something from me, all you have to do is ask! If I can do whatever you’re asking, I will. If I can’t, I’ll simply tell you, and you’ll have to deal with it!”

This way of dealing with guilt has changed my life, I actually take my own advice. Sometimes, still, I resist the urge to do what’s right and acquiesce to her old ways.

I have another family member who loves using guilt to get her way. For as long as I can remember, this is has been her prime force of power. She uses it with her children, her siblings and her parents. Of course, I feel virtually void of her guilt, because I have parameters and boundaries that supersede this kind of control. You need this kind of power, too, if you want to exist in this world without undo guilt causing you to carry extra weight, depression, and procrastination.

Women are primary candidates for carrying guilt. A recent Spanish study in 2010 shows that women acquiesce to guilt more than men. Read the article: http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2010/01/100125123305.htm. Why is this so?

I have many women clients who have been trapped by demanding mothers and parents who keep them practically jailed in their own homes because of shame and guilt. It takes a lifetime of manipulation to be able to engage a fully-grown adult into the kind of shame that would put a life on hold to take care of a parent and give up a job and/or relationship. Trust me, it happens frequently, though.

In these cases, most of the time, the woman has her own set of issues that help debilitate her, as well, needing to rest on her parent’s laurels for help and security. This symbiotic mess causes a reduction of the protective boundaries in my clients and a maze of codependent and co-narcissistic behavior.

If you feel you need help with this kind of issue, take it to a professional. Regaining power and the resources to overcome dependency and narcissism take time and a complete renovation on the neural impulses that cause this detrimental behavior.

Go to Week 3 of the “Year to CLEAR Challenge” 

______________________________________________

Look for MY LATEST BOOK: “Finding Authentic You, 7 Steps to Effective Change” with a Year to CLEAR (C-larity, L-ove, E-nthusiasm A-nd R-elationship-Ready) on my Website in the Webstore. Thanks!

Below is information that I will be sharing for about a month, as not every person on my list reads the blog every day. If you have already read it, just skip over it. Thanks for understanding.

A Year to CLEAR Challenge:
(Please Know: You Can Join Us At Any Point in the Year Challenge.)

The masses search outward for things that qualify them as a person, but I always go inward for that which quantifies me for greatness. At twenty-five I preached on street corners in NYC as an in-the-closet Pentecostal minister. One day I heard a still small voice say, ‘God cannot be contained in a book or a law or even in a religion. Dig deeper, reach further to find me, and you will find your authentic Self.’”

A Year to CLEAR Challenge!

The acronym CLEAR stands for (Compassionate, Loving, Enthusiastic, And Relationship-Ready). The goal of this project is to engulf readers in a weekly study that will transform them by removing blocks, promote self-growth, and give them wings to fly freely into daily life. Each week, by going to BoSebastian.com and choosing the Year to CLEAR Challenge tab, a new challenge or thought to provoke conversation, growth, and group functionality.

My vision is to make Finding Authentic You the book to have in your Kindle or on your computer. The book is a comprehensive look at growth—spiritually, mentally, and physically.

As a yoga teacher and student of the Ayurvedic tradition, I bring to the table understanding of physical challenges, the ability to overcome mental problems with Life & Health Coaching, as well as hypnotherapy, and expertise in meditation and spirituality as a minister.

The combination of all three in one book with an interactive connection to like-minded readers, for one year, is what makes this Year to CLEAR Challenge a must-do for every spiritual seeker.

The One-Year Approach to Change

No one believes he or she can change overnight. But success in change comes from the metaphors of nature. Seasonally, life changes all around us in nature. Finding Authentic You offers a gradual change perspective, looking at the triune aspects of change as in yoga: Body, Mind and Spirit.

Accessing the ability to change and finding yourself actually pursuing change must be a daily search, which I call getting to the “observer mind.”

In this frontal cortex of the brain we find the anatomy of change and the power to counter every negative trigger of the human process. The workings of Hypnosis, NLP (Neuro-linguistic Programming) and EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) are all positive actions to help the mind and body flow to a positive space for change.

Every aspect of FINDING AUTHENTIC YOU fulfills this constant need for diffusing the negative past and dreaming of a fulfilling future.

Step 1: Recognize That Change is Inevitable
Step 2: Release from Resistance to Change
Step 3: Understanding Change and Allow Spirit to Define It
Step 4: A History Lesson—About You
Step 5: Look at Your Past with Compassion
Step 6: Making a Strong Commitment to Change
Step 7: Dream Your Fabulous Future
