I have been looking into hypnotism for the purpose of losing weight/maintaining weight. i've joined weight watchers and when I do the program , it always works, but i've never finished the program and always always have trouble maintaining my weight loss. so, i contacted someone who does weight loss hypnosis. The only issue is after researching a little bit about whether or not hypnosis is biblical, i'm having some second thoughts. I talked to the woman and she basically plays a cd for 30-40 minutes and then gives you some cds to take home with you. The cds are SUPPOSED to put you into a deep relaxation, like deep sleep and then you listen to them, but you can't listen to them while driving. I'm really wondering now if by going into such a deep state am I opening myself up to things I shouldn't be? What does the Bible say about hynosis and is it the occult or at least opening yourself up to something you shouldnt? on another level...it feels kinda like cheating to me, like it's too easy. She said she can give a book where you can lose 9lbs in 3 days, but it's a healthy way. That seems to easy to me and also I know from weight watchers that 9lbs in 3 days isn't a healthy amount to lose, after the first week you usually should be losing 2lbs a week roughly...that is for all healthy forms of weight loss...so it seems too easy like there might be a cost. what do you all think?
