Close Kept Secrets to Weight Loss Lesson #6
I am so proud of you and your accomplishments. You're embarking on your own journey and you astound me because you want something more, something that surpasses what you currently know. You are such a gift from God and He is right there with you as you're on your journey to discover you-peeling back the layers to find the wholeness that already exists.
When I went through my transformation to discover myself after being very sick and peeled back my own layers and changed my thoughts, I had a difficult time adapting to the new me. For years I had been this person who lived in fear and worry and attracted everything that was separate from God; I didn't know the person I had become.
Here I was experiencing a higher vibration of energy encompassing peace, love and joy and didn't quite know what to do with these feelings. I was having new conversations with people on a whole different level and saying goodbye to some when I felt the need to do so. You may experience this as well. People are going to see changes in you and might be unsure of what this means for your relationship with them. Try not to be alarmed as there might be relationships that you're going to have to say goodbye to because they don't represent who you are any longer. Make sure you thank them for the role they played in your life (either in person or writing it down in a journal). This is necessary for your healing. Be aware of it and embrace it.
Wayne Dyer, my mentor who wrote The Power of Intention, eloquently states "Surround yourself with the conditions which you want to produce." If you're looking for harmony, then attract only those people, those experiences that will produce harmony. Likewise, if you want to attract weight loss, then attract those people, those experiences that will help you produce weight loss. If you are around people who always want to eat in an unhealthy way, how is this going to help you in your quest to lose weight? What are you going to do about it? To quote Ralph Waldo Emerson, "Nothing can bring you peace but yourself."
This is the intention of these lessons. To show you that you already have all the answers within. I am the one who holds your hand to guide you to your answers. As Wayne Dyer serves as my mentor, I will serve as yours. I'll be your coach, your cheerleader to say, "You can do it." It's so easy to look outside yourself for the answers, but the answers always lie within. We need to be ready to be open and to listen to our inner voice, our spirit. Sometimes we can listen to the itty bitty committee that is within us as well. Have you ever heard of this committee? They tell us that we can't do it. They shout at us and say "Who do you think you are to lose weight. You're never going to be able to do it. You've tried in the past and haven't been successful."
Take a few moments and write down all the thoughts you've had in the past that supports the committee's existence. Every thought that you've had that you couldn't do it, it's too hard, everyone else can lose weight but me-all those I can't statements.
Right now, express gratitude to the committee. Take a moment and thank them for their presence because you needed them at one time. Our challenges can be our greatest gifts so it's important to communicate gratitude because of the lessons we're supposed to learn. Remember, the itty bitty committee is our own negative thoughts.
Ready to have some fun? Stand up and visualize the committee as these small, troll dolls lined up across the floor. Now turn around and shake your hineys at this committee while shouting and laughing, "I am my ideal weight. I am a beautiful person. I am a lean, mean, sex machine. My butt is nice and shapely. I am a Divine child of God." You can keep going with this and use any affirmations you would like and have more fun. Here's a bumper sticker we could make?.my thighs are smaller than your thighs. Now, you're changing your thoughts to embrace a higher vibration of energy to attract only positive people and experiences in your life. Keep practicing and use the EFT tapping points too!
We haven't talked about exercise yet so here's your homework. Exercise your little (notice I said little) hineys off. Pick something that you like to do and do it for at least ten minutes a few times each week. It can just be walking around the house. You can turn on butt movin' music and dance around the house for a few minutes?even more. If you have children, get them involved. Dance with your significant other. They will love this time with you.
As you're exercising throw your body into it. Let your body know that you love it and are giving it the attention it deserves. Your blood is moving, your toxic cells are leaving your body. Your lungs thank you, your muscles thank you. Every part of your body is feeling the exhilaration. Ba bye, fat cells!
Thank you for letting me part of your life and help you. You are the most incredible person there is and I'm very blessed to have you in my life.
