I have suddenly realised that losing weight is part of your healing process. It can take place in any forms and shapes. I decided before I start putting my thoughts together about Hypnotherapy I will publish SW article on Weight Loss I read about a year ago but did not have a chance to share.
Fat is stored heat. The measure of that heat is a calorie. A calorie is the amount of energy needed to raise the temperature of one thousandth of a kilogram of water, one degree Celsius at sea level.
Hell is cold; heaven is nice and warm. Trust me on that one. Fear is a form of hell; it is cold. When we are scared or insecure we seek heat. That may come in the form of laughter, or an embrace, or the warmth of other’s personality, or it may be heat in the form of sex. But usually we treat the icy blasts of our threatened psychology with food. A Big Mac is 600 calories of heat. Two slices of pizza are 560 calories. Spaghetti with sauce is 820 calories. A pound of fat on your waist or hips is equivalent to 3500 calories of stored fear. It’s all mathematics.
Women doing light office work say, burn about 2200-2500 calories a day, depending on their height and weight. Men use about 10% more than women, up to about 3000 a day, if the man is six feet tall. If you do really hard physical work like digging ditches for a living, you can add about 500 calories a day to your needs.
Doctors say you should exercise everyday; doctors almost never get old, they usually die young. You can lose a little weight thinking about that; the electricity in the brain needs calories to operate successfully. Deepak Chopra once told me that if you exercise each day you only increase your lifespan by exactly the amount of time you have been running about. I can’t see the point of it myself. Certainly you can burn about 60-80 calories an hour rushing about at the gym, but it always seems a lot of effort; it’s not activity well suited to the gentle mind, especially when you can save a 100 calories if you drop just one piece of bacon from your breakfast. Still, if you walk to the pub rather than drive round it may help you a bit, who knows?
Crash-bang Hollywood diets usually work but if you lose weight quickly you will put it right back on again. You have to train your mind to be less fearful and cold, and you have to train your body to consume less heat. If you can get down to ingesting just 1500-1700 calories a day, you will lose weight gently over a period of time and you’ll train your body and your appetite to get used to it. It’s a mind-set first, and a personal discipline second. 1500-1700 calories a day is quite a lot of food; you won’t starve, if you consume your calories wisely. Obviously, salads and vegetables have hardly any calories at all, but the dressings can catch you out. One tablespoon of butter, oil or margarine is 100 calories.
Westerners are often emotionally cold, blob-like people that worry a lot. If you start your weight loss plan by developing a warmer, less scary lifestyle that will help with food craving because you don’t need the sudden influxes of heat to cope with the fear, and if you learn to meditate it helps you stay calm. I took to the Taoist philosophy a long time ago. It’s very detached. If the airplane goes down, you shrug and die. If it rains, you get wet. The Taoist accepts that the way things are is the way things are. It’s not Taoist to fight against circumstances, or to try to control others, or force them into actions you approve of. Acceptance is the key to the Taoist way of looking at things.
It doesn’t work for me all the time and I sometimes rant and rave and shake my fist at the gods, but I didn’t come here to be perfect and nor did you. If we were perfect we’d be flying about with little wings firing good ideas at loads of rather hopeless humans below. If I ever make it to the status of angel I want to be the angel of “Staring into the Distance, Humming.”
Humming uses calories but not many.

I met a music producer called Kofi. He was very interesting and entertaining, he was originally from Accra, Ghana, where I grew up.
Kofi the 50,000 cals a day man
He told me he eats 50,000 calories of food a day, he’s very slim and muscular and fit. A man of his size would normally eat 3000-3500 calories a day. I asked him why he didn’t get fat, he said it was because of clarity.
He told me he eats 60 scrambled eggs for breakfast, five days a week, then for lunch he has three 20 inch pan pizzas, and risotto enough for ten people, then three osso buccos, they are veal shanks, and he ends lunch with two large fish. At night he said he likes to eat light, he has two whole chickens.
A singer he works with at times told me that if he does not eat these vast quantities of food he drops off to sleep. I was with him for an hour and half, he constantly ate little candies one after then next.
Kofi asked me “How can I add value to your life?” I am not a person that wants anything, but I was touched that he asked.
Khris Krepcik of hardly ever eats, he has just three small spoons of rice and vegetables at night, it’s about 500 calories, and I eat light about 1500 calories a day, 2500-3000 would be normal for a man my size.
There are lots of different people in this world. A-mazing. Stuart Wilde
...and now... about theHypnotherapy and Your Weight Loss...
From my own experience: it changes your image about yourself - and this shifts your state of mind and your habits dramatically. Sometimes such Hypnotherapy session can become a real life changing experience.
I personally do not know how it works - it might remove some blockages in your mind inherited from your childhood or from your past lives; it might release you from your gilts feelings about something personal or it might just bless and open you up once again to start from scratch... I leave the technique and the approach up to specialists; what really shocked and surprised me was the results from only one session that I had with IMHO one of best Australian hypnotherapists and healers. It might depend on a power of the person who assisted me in the regression session ... once again - I do not want to speculate on that. It might be my openness and acceptance, my trust and my will to go all the way through no matter how embarrassing it was for my ego (as I looked terrible: all in tears and trembling), how hard it was to face myself, my darkness and the far corners of my mind and how scary the unknown was. I just know that it works.
The true and genuine healing is instant. If you go to see your healer for more than a year consider yourself trapped, dependent, not learning and giving away your power: you are now like a drowning person hanging on the last straw. The straw is your healer. You can not live without him and you can not breath without him. All your life actions are the matter of questioning him what do you do next, how to fix this or that. Your power is lost.
The true healer is Love Itself. you will know when you meet one. He tells you that you are perfect the way you are, he accepts all your weaknesses, he teaches you with his own example, his healing takes one glace (less than an instant). You feel completely safe and you are running your won program. You can be with him or will be still comfortable on your own. The energy is there. He opened you up, he cracked you and there is only one way to go - the path of your heart.
And remember one thing: the student comes when the teacher is ready... not the other way round...
