Session 2-releasing my shame
This weight loss hypnosis mp3 session (40:01) explores shame. Shaming is
often used to keep people in line and to shape behavior. We see this in homes,
on the playground, in school settings and in the work environment. We also see
it in the personal internal environment.
The use of shaming begins at an early age, usually with
well-intended but stressed amateur parents. Most parents do their best to use
positive reinforcement, redirection and distraction. Unfortunately, what is
often remembered by little subconscious minds are the comments that fed the
“less then” identity.
Shame is often still used in adulthood as a means to
“motivate” people to shape up. A little pat on someone’s bulging tummy, a
little snide remark at a second helping, a raised eyebrow during “weigh ins”
are all examples of subtle shaming.
In fact, some shaming is so subtle that the conscious mind
does not compute it, but the subconscious mind certainly does. When we
experience shaming the subconscious mind files it away for easy reference.
Shame is likely one of the most damaging emotions that we
can experience. However, it is often a daily reality for people who are over
weight. We can begin to create new meanings and new associations around how we
pick up external messages, how we filter them and the meaning that we give
We were not born with feelings of shame, and in that sense,
it is not a “genuine” emotion. It is a borrowed experience that does not need
to be accepted into today’s reality. Subconsciously managing shame, putting it
in its place is a free-ing experience.
