Close Kept Secrets to Weight Loss Lesson #4

How's the practicing going? Are you spending time each day to practice RET, EFT and affirmations? When you make yourself a priority, then everything else falls into place.

When we lose our connection to God, to ourselves, then we get off track. The answer is very simple! Spend time with yourself each day and focus on you.

Do you make excuses why you can't spend time with yourself? Do you come up with all sorts of reasons why you couldn't do it?

Take some time right now and write down the excuses you generally use when you don't focus on you? Example: I couldn't exercise because I had to do the laundry. Just name everything you use as an excuse. If you have weight issues, I guarantee the list will be long.

God created you as the most awesome person in the Universe and spending time with yourself would please Him. He wants you to feel that joy and love of yourself. One way to spend time with yourself is being thankful.

I thought it would be appropriate to take some time to be grateful. Expressing gratitude is important to adopt as a daily practice. When you're thankful for all you've received, it opens your heart up to attract great things. You look at everything in such a different way and realize all that you have is given to you by God. How powerful is this?

A great daily practice is seeing the Divinity in all things and this is what I would like you to do right now. Take a look around you in the room you're in and notice everything. Now, we're going to be thankful for all that you see.

I am grateful for the walls
I am grateful for the paint
I am grateful for the computer
I am grateful for the windows
I am grateful for the doors
I am grateful for the lights

You get the picture. See how many things you can say or write down that you're grateful for in just that room alone. You'll feel a sense of calm and won't be stressed.

You can expand on this to include your body. Remember to act as if it is already happening.

I am grateful for my thin body

I am grateful that food nourishes me

I am grateful I no longer have cravings

I would like to express my gratitude to you and how much I appreciate you being a part of my life. I know your weight has been (I'm using past tense here) an issue, but remember I will be the light that helps you know you have everything within you now to overcome this. I'm destined to help you uncover those layers you're using as protection.

The big lesson today is focus on you. There is no bigger priority than you. You deserve it!

Love and hugs,
