Here’s a story to share with you, all about the hypnotic power of a half-eaten rotten banana.
I was working with a Seattle man the other day on quitting smoking. One of the elements of this work is our search for a useful feeling called “hell, no!” This gentleman, his “Hell, no!” was the thought of eating a rotten banana–he declared it the worst disgust feeling he could conjure. Coincidence, and propinquity! I had a half eaten well-past-its-prime squishy black banana in my trash can at the office at that very moment. I fished it out and we gave him several good whiffs, while I used my hypnotic tool kit to set that disgust equal to smoking. He’s done with cigarettes. Cravings are dead.
Long live the rotten banana! And long live the happy and healthy nonsmoker.
At the same time, and on the flip side of the coin, we also customized some powerful, good Designer Feelings™ in place of smoking, and attached those to undo the habit. Wonderful feelings that encourage healthy: calm, contentment, in control, and so on. Just as what generates disgust is unique person to person, so, too are the good feelings which can kick smoking desire to the curb. We explore and generate both in our Greater Seattle hypnotherapy center.
There’s a science and methodology to Neuro Linguistic hypnotherapy blended with fun and creativity, and, guess what? It works! For quitting smoking, as well as a variety of other positive changes. Are you ready to quit smoking? Let’s do it! Call me and let’s get started.
