Happy New Year With True Love

December 31st, 2010

There was a wonderful photo art project that i am proud to have been involved with. The photographer, Zack Seckler created some amazing images of people in the grip of the powerful emotional state of Love!

The emotion jumps right out of the image and you can actually feel the love that the subjects are feeling. The subjects of the pictures are not actors or models, they are real people that were hypnotized to re experience love. Hypnotists, Marc Carlin, (me), Joel Elfin hypnotized these everyday people to feel the love that they have felt at other times of their lives. Zack then went ahead and photographed them.

Here are some of the photos:

A hypnotist in Massachusetts, Erika Slater, took the training with Sheila Granger’s Virtual Gastric Band and then immediately put it to the test. Even during one of the most difficult times of year for people looking to lose weight, her volunteers lost significant amounts of weight. Proving how effective Sheila’s Virtual Gastric Band Program is.

I have been using Sheila Granger’s hypnosis gastric band program with clients and having great success. Sheila has reported a 95% success rate with her 2 trial results and I have seen similar results with most of my clients losing weight as well.

Lapband Hypnosis Hype Or Real Deal?

December 3rd, 2010

There is an interesting discussion that was brought about by the segment that was run on CBS -TV last week on the work that I do using what CBS called lapband hypnosis. They were wondering if lap band hypnosis was real or if it was just hype. If you haven’t seen the segment you can see it right here:

I can tell you that it’s real for the people that are losing weight. And this program that I use is based upon Sheila Granger’s study that had a 95% success rate over in England. She worked with 25 people in her original study and 24 of them lost weight.

She has been working in a surgery in England since this past summer, and the doctor, who does gastric band surgery, wanted Sheila to work with some of his patients who didn’t qualify for the surgery. So once again Sheila took on a group of volunteers to go through her program. This time it was 13 people who participated in the study she conducted in the Doctor’s own office. This group was a horror show as Sheila describes it. They didn’t believe in hypnosis, they were entirely skeptical and Sheila was afraid that all of her good work and her reputation would be damaged when she realized what she had let herself in for, agreeing to work with this doctor’s patients. When she went to the doctor with her concerns, the doctor told her that these patients were hard core over-eaters, and if she got even a 20% success rate, he would be thoroughly impressed.

Well when she concluded her study, once again out of 13 volunteers, 12 of them lost weight, proving that a high success rate in groups was not a one time occurrence.

If you would like to find out more about how lapband hypnosis can help you,assist you in losing weight you can visit lap band hypnosis and get more info, or call my office at 212 223-1832.

Lapband Hypnosis on CBS Television

November 24th, 2010

On November 23, 2010 CBS TV news broadcast a story on Lapband Hypnosis.  They described the process of the virtual gastric band and how it can help you lose weight.  They highlighted the work of Marc Carlin, the NYC Hypnotist and how Carlin is able to use hypnosis to help people lose weight.

You can view the segment of CBS TV on Marc Carlin and the use of what CBS calls Lapband Hypnosis here:

Marc Carlin uses the virtual gastric band method developed by Sheila Granger in the UK. Marc Carlin introduced Sheila’s gastric band hypnosis method to the United States in October of 2010, when 24 hypnotists from all over North America came to NYC to be trained in the process of using Sheila’s method. Sheila Granger was the guest speaker at the training.

There will be more trainings for new facilitators of this method in the coming year. It is our goal to help more and more overweight and obese Americans to reverse this growing problem. If you would like to become a facilitator of this program you can visit the Virtual Gastric Band Training website to get more information about the upcoming seminar class for Sheila Granger’s Virtual Gastric Band taking place in Las Vegas in January of 2011.

You can call Marc Carlin at 212 223-1832, to find out more about the Virtual Gastric Band process in New York. Or visit his site at Virtual Gastric Band Hypnosis.

Avoid Failing at Your First Hypnotic Visit for Weight Loss

November 22nd, 2010

You’ve probably been considering using hypnosis to help you to lose weight.  And if you have never had a hypnotic experience before, you probably would like to know how to assure that you will be successful when you do.  So I thought I would recount a tale of a recent hypnotic failed session that I was involved in, so that you could benefit from it and be able to succeed with your own.

First off I want to tell you that it is impossible to fail at going into trance, unless you have a very low IQ.  One that is less than 70 on the IQ scale.  And because you are reading this article, this assures that you have the ability to experience and benefit from hypnotic trance.

So maybe you are asking, how did someone come to see me and have a failed session?  Were they someone who had a less than 70 IQ?  Was I less than effective in my work?  So you’re probably asking, what could possibly have happened to cause this person to have a failed session?

In answer to your questions, no this person was not an idiot with an IQ of less than 70.  No I was not less than my stellar self using the tools that I am quite accomplished at to help facilitate the normal human to change.  I have to be quite frank with you, you might never find out why this particular person failed at being a good hypnotic participant.  But I am sure that I can give you enough insights into why they failed that this information will help you to make sure that you will have a successful session.

Hypnosis is a dance of sorts.  There must be a leader and a follower.  Imagine what it would be like if there were two people on the dance floor who both wanted to lead.  Now imagine there being two dancers on the floor who both wanted to follow.  No good, right?  Not really a satisfying dance for either of them.  Now imagine what it would be like if there started off being one leader and one follower, and after a while, one of the dancers decided to change roles and the other refused.  Still not a good picture right?

Well that was what happened during this failed session.  The subject who came to see me to be guided into hypnosis, achieved a great level of hypnotic trance.  Their trance was verified covertly by me in a number of ways on a few different occasions.  And then this hypnotic trance state was verified by the subject as they followed along perfectly.  We hypnotists call this a convincer, which is usually interpreted that way by the subject.  This time, the subject for some reason refused to accept that the convincer really took place.

There are a lot of myths and misconceptions about hypnosis by most people.  During the course of my sessions, prior to hypnotizing my clients, I work diligently and thoroughly to dispel any and all of these myths and misconceptions that might be held by my subjects.  But sometimes people refuse to let go of what they expect hypnosis to be.  And if you expect for some reason that hypnosis will mean that you will be unconscious, and that you will not have any thoughts in your mind at all, then no matter what I tell you about your trance you will not accept it.

So here’s the big lesson for you.  You must find a hypnotist that you want to trust.  You must be willing to trust their expertise and ability prior to allowing them to guide you into your trance state.  You will get better at going into trance because your skill does improve each time you experience trance.  You should know that you will have thoughts.  You might at first have many outside thoughts, perhaps even thoughts about if what you are experiencing is really hypnosis.  Do not entertain these thoughts or give them any weight.  They are not real, they are just that other part of your mind refusing to relax.  The good news is that hypnosis isn’t really about relaxation.  You can go into hypnosis without the need to relax but relaxation does help.  Over time you can learn to let go and go more quickly into hypnosis.

And sometimes you must just rely upon the hypnotists expertise as to whether you have achieved hypnosis or not and then when you begin to follow the suggestions during the session and continue to follow the guidelines outlined to you by your hypnotist after the session then you can notice the change and verify your results.

But if you think you weren’t hypnotized and here’s the real problem, you decide not to follow through on the instructions provided to you by the hypnotist on how to behave after the session, then you just chose to waste your time and money.
