When you find it difficult or impossible to change an unwanted habit, it often has to do with the way you relate, or communicate, with yourself. Hypnosis works because its highest goal and purpose is to help you develop a caring and compassionate relationship with your inner self. Essentially, you realize greater integration or alignment of different parts of you, inside, that may be failing to communicate because they ‘think’ they are at odds with one another.
When you feel stuck in some area of your life, it can seem as if part of you wants to change and another part does not. It may annoy or perplex you not to be open to your own suggestions.
It seems like it should be easy to stop doing something you’ve decided is harmful, such as stop binge eating or angry outbursts, or start doing something beneficial to your health, such as enjoy a lifestyle of regular exercise and nutritious food on your way to a strong, trim and fit body.
More often, this resistance means differing parts of you are in conflict.
