Cure affluenza and overcome the urge to keep acquiring more stuff

Have you got affluenza? You might be interested to know what symptoms to look out for.

Some key indicators are

  • getting fixated on acquiring specific 'desirable' items
  • being unduly influenced by whether such items are bigger/faster/latest fashion/owned by so-and-so
  • believing that these items are 'essential' to your happiness
  • constantly thinking about acquiring the next thing/more things
  • feeling restless and uneasy if you resist buying
  • overworking in order to raise money to buy items
  • taking on unsustainable loans to raise money to buy items
  • feeling that people who own those items are 'better' than you
  • sensing that others look down on you for not owning them
  • gnawing sense of dissatisfaction no matter how much you already have
  • feeling trapped in a pattern of hoping that the next item will finally make you really happy

The problem with the pursuit of more

The affluenza epidemic has spread across most of the developed world, and even less well-developed places have not entirely escaped. The word 'affluenza' gained currency when British psychologist Oliver James published a book of that name looking into the spread of this painful, contagious, socially transmitted condition of overload, debt, anxiety and waste resulting from the dogged pursuit of more.

There wouldn't be any personal problem for anyone with this pattern of acquisition (leaving aside the social and economic implications), if continuous acquisition actually did make you happy. But it doesn't. Not only that, but it can't make you happy, as Professor Robert Lane of Yale University explains in his analysis of all the research on the subject in his book The Loss of Happiness in Market Democracies.

How to use hypnosis to overcome the urge to buy more things

But you already know you're not happy with what is happening. The question is: is it possible to cure it? What is the appropriate 'medication'? You have probably already found that just trying to use will power to resist the urge to buy doesn't get you very far. What you need is something that will fundamentally change your mind-set so that it will feel natural for you to be more satisfied with what you have.

Overcome Affluenza is an audio hypnosis session which uses powerful hypnotic suggestion to help you radically change that seemingly fundamental conviction that having more and getting more is what life is all about. It will tap into the unconscious roots of this pattern and allow you to construct a new 'template' of what matters to you.

As you relax in deep trance, removed from the world and seeing it from a whole new perspective, you will find yourself effortlessly 'pre-experiencing' what it is like to have this new balanced template operational in your life. This allows you to get so familiar with your new way of being that you will find yourself effectively 'immunized' against affluenza and won't catch it again.
