Why your New Year’s Resolutions don’t work?

Why your New Year’s Resolutions don’t work?

Dan Lohmeyer CH

Chances are pretty good that over the course of your life you have tried making personal changes starting at the beginning of the year.  It might even be that you have tried making those same changes repeatedly over the course of many years.  You’ve had the best of intentions, worked yourself up for weeks and started your New Year’s Resolutions at the beginning of the year. For most people its start exercising, eat better, lose weight, quit smoking and stop procrastinating etc…. Then, usually about a week or two into the New Year (or a few hours if you’re trying to quit smoking), all of your resolution goes out the window and you fail. So you begin to think what’s the use?

Why New Year’s Resolutions don’t work is because you programmed yourself to fail!  Your subconscious mind is in charge of your habits and changes, and unless you change things on that level, you simply will fail (hypnosis). If your subconscious mind is conditioned for failure on January 1st, then the best thing to do is to start get reprogrammed for success with hypnosis before you start your New Year’s Resolutions!  Do it right now.  Do not wait. When you are not programmed for failure, it makes success much easier.

An important concept to think about is that for most of us, willpower will not work.  Where imagination and willpower are in conflict, imagination will always win.  In essence, most people use their imaginations to fail, when they could be using them to succeed!

Let’s say you set one of your New Year’s Resolutions to want to lose weight.  You have a favorite food that is a problem for you such as pizza (or whatever it may be). Using your best willpower you struggle against eating it all the while imagining how good it tastes in your mind.  You imagine the satisfying taste as you bite down on a slice and then the taste of heaven as you chew.  You imagine eating one slice after another, enjoying the melted cheese and toppings until your heart’s content.  In essence, you are convincing yourself to eat pizza! Hypnosis will help you so when you have a thought about a pizza, you can imagine yourself in exactly the right outfit, feeling wonderful about yourself, feeling healthy and alive, seeing what you would see, hearing what you would hear, and feeling all of the great feelings of being at exactly the right healthy weight for you. Choosing to eat healthier and drink more water instead of eating bad. You could imagine your friends, family members, and even strangers commenting on how good you look.  You could imagine yourself exercising and feeling fantastic about that.

You could get hypnotized for what you WANT instead of what you do not want.  And since your mind can not tell the difference between a real or vividly imagined event, and since success breeds success, the more you imagine yourself being successful at whatever change you want to make, the more success you will have.

Hypnosis the Power of the Mind

You can, you know, through the power of your own subconscious mind. All you have to do is re-program it. Where you are in life, right now, is the perfect place for you. Your subconscious mind has followed your plans and desires to a tee. Whether you are rich, or poor, extremely successful, or struggling, happy, or dissatisfied and miserable, THAT is where you directed your subconscious mind to take you.

Your subconscious has the power and knowledge of the universe, but it has no imagination, no direction of its own. It is like a magnificent ship capable of taking you anywhere in life’s ocean. It even has its own, built-in navigator, but YOU are the MASTER. You have to plot your course, and it will follow your every command. This is why hypnosis is so successful. Its your mind being guided to where or what you want.

You may take exception to the first paragraph, particularly if your life is among the more negative of the examples. There lies the point in question. The universe is in perfect balance, made up of “positive” and “negative” vibrations. If you seek, or even accept, the negative vibrations, that is what your subconscious projects, and what you, in turn, receive. Those who can only feel positive thoughts and project positive vibes, summon in powerful, positive strength to achieve anything. Just read any book on success or the mind and I promise you its talking about the power of the subconscious mind aka “hypnosis”.

Mind you, if you have suffered from “poor-meitus” for any length of time, or issued a great deal of negative vibes to yourself or others, this is hard to cure. The moment you try to put yourself on a “positive” course, you will find you have awakened a sleeping beast. Mr. Negative is a grasping, clinging monster who never wants to lose a slave. As you first begin feeling the results and rewards of a positive stance in all walks of your life, don’t be surprised, or alarmed, by a series of negative occurrences. Just hang in there and, if you laugh at each weak attempt to discourage you, you will find your positive vibrations will always win out. Through hypnosis it can be achieved much more quickly like immediate to within 72 hrs.

Everyone has a subconscious mind with the ability to do wonderful things for them. It is while developing in life, from childhood on, that so many negative messages can stunt its growth. From “don’t touch that, you’ll burn yourself,” “get back or you’ll fall,” “look out, don’t break that,” to “you won’t amount to much,” “you’ll never make it in that business,” “you want to be a what?” – it’s a wonder we ever make it to adulthood. The good news is all of these pre-programming thoughts can be overridden by “You” through hypnosis.

What your battered being has been most exposed to, or whatever compromises you have made in your development, can convince your subconscious mind that you want to be in a dull, unrewarding job, content to squeak by, at or near minimum wage.

Who do you really want to be? Where do you want to be? How wealthy do you want to be? Your birthright is to have health, wealth and happy relationships. Your subconscious mind can draw an abundance of each from your own treasure trove in the universe if you just go about it the right way. How do you get the attention of your subconscious mind and make it accomplish these things for you?

It is possible through deep study, concentration, and trial and error to make contact yourself. It is much easier with the help and guidance of an extremely well-trained Certified Hypnotist.

Your author was first introduced to Hypnosis at age 18. Using the techniques of positive mind, through self-hypnosis, he was able to become a US Marine, Owner of a large financial company, before realizing that what he really wanted to do was to guide others to their dreams. To learn how to apply this ability to others he enrolled in, and graduated (with Honors) from the National Guild of Hypnotists Course. This was an intense study of over 108 hrs of training and clinical time with clients.

Having been in private practice for a little over 2 years, he has gained great pleasure in helping clients who were feeling bogged down in their careers, relationships, and lives in general, find new enthusiasm and, in hundreds of cases, great success.

Your mind can make many things happen for you, too. You want to reach the top, enjoy life to the max? Don’t ever say, “I cant.” DO IT! It’s easier than you think, through Hypnosis.

What is hypnosis?

What is Hypnosis  

Hypnosis comes from the Greek ‘ypnos’ which means sleep because of the highly relaxed state. However Hypnosis is not sleep because the subject stays alert, can talk and move, and the brain waves differ. Hypnosis has been defined in various ways by different people. The most popular traditional view of hypnosis is a very relaxed state or a type of tunnel vision.

Hypnosis is a natural state we all experience from time-to-time, for example when we daydream. When we daydream we are mentally focused on some internal event, and we have decreased awareness of the things around us. In “Tunnel Vision “one’s attention is focused narrowly – on imagery, on internal events, on a spot on the ceiling, on the voice of the hypnotist, etc.

A state of relaxation and heightened suggestibility is often seen under these conditions and this is what hypnotherapists / health practitioners use for treating various sorts of problems that also have an underlying mental / emotional factor – such as weight gain due to emotional eating or smoking under times of stress.

Do you sleep well?


A good night’s sleep is said to be the best way to restore and rejuvenate your body and mind and when you cannot achieve it for long periods your life and health will suffer considerably. Many people live with insomnia or lack of natural sleep for different reasons.

Lets first look at what insomnia is. Insomnia is a sleep disorder, the most common causes of insomnia is stress at work or home, financial or marital and certain medical conditions. Insomnia symptoms are generally lack of sleep for long periods of time, interrupted sleep or not being able to fall back to sleep once your sleep has been interrupted.

Insomnia treatment has been approached in many different ways and one of them is hypnosis.

A lot of people mistakenly believe that hypnosis is sleep, but effective hypnosis insomnia programs will only work if you are awake but in a deep state of relaxation. In this state, your unconscious mind is more open and accepting to suggestions. In the most successful programs, post-hypnotic suggestions are given to you to eliminate stress and set up a positive expectation of restful sleep.

How does hypnosis for insomnia actually work? Hypnosis is a natural state of mind that is in between sleep and awareness; in this state one can access the subconscious level and thus, access most of your brain functions.
Hypnosis is used in treating many diseases most of which are mentally bases in order to induce a familiar pattern and bring back natural habits that once existed within you. Hypnosis for insomnia works in the same pattern, there may be required more than a few sessions to bring back your natural sleeping habit but at the same time hypnosis for insomnia is one of the safest and most natural ways to bring back sleep in your life.

After thoroughly relaxing, the next step in self hypnosis insomnia therapy is finding out what compels you to suffer from sleep disturbance. Another key component of a hypnosis insomnia course involves looking at small changes to your nightly ritual that will have the greatest effect on your ability to quickly fall asleep for sound and restful slumber.

Relieving stress is paramount for a hypnosis insomnia treatment to work. Visualizations can train the unconscious mind to automatically extinguish disturbing thoughts and feelings of anxiety and stress. These peaceful feelings stay with you through the day so that when it is time for bed, you can fall asleep quickly and rest throughout the entire night without interruption.

To permanently overcome insomnia, learning to relax with self-hypnosis is imperative, but it is not always possible to listen to a CD or watch a DVD. Learning how to give yourself post-hypnotic suggestions anytime, anywhere to bring about deep relaxation can easily be accomplished.

Hypnotherapy instructions for insomnia can be directives to the unconscious mind to use pleasant memories or places of serenity.  You will feel peaceful at bedtime and have a positive expectation of sound and restful sleep. And that positive expectation will make you fall asleep quickly, and the dreams will make you sleep soundly and restfully all through the night.

Everyone responds differently to each type of hypnosis but most hypnosis insomnia program participants find their sleep issues are cured by hypnosis, and insomnia simply fades away.
