Close Kept Secrets to Weight Loss Lesson #8

Life is extraordinary filled with wonderful people to show up to teach us things. Mitzi, a special friend from high school, sent me a book, The Game of Life and How to Play It, when I was struggling with a sickness years ago. The author speaks about the law of attraction, which I have written about previously. In addition, she writes, "No man is your enemy, no man is your friend, every man is your teacher." When you look at life this way, it becomes so simple.

Rather than be offended by what a person is saying to you, think a new thought. What is this person teaching me? What can I learn from this person? This book changed my life as it showed me how I could change my thoughts. I had always functioned from a foundation of worry and fear. Worry and fear are lower vibrational energies and then I attracted lower energies. Today, I see things entirely different as a result of changing my thoughts, and am so grateful for this transformation. I am now attracting higher vibrational energies and am amazed who is showing up for me!

What I would like you to do is write down the top five people in your life. Don't try and analyze this-just write down those people that first pop into your mind. Now, write down the lessons they are teaching you. This might be a challenge if there is conflict with any of them. I once read that your true soul mates are the people who challenge you to be better.

You have been given many great gifts. You are to share your talents with the world. By remaining stuck in your weight issues, you are ripping off the world of what you came to this earth to do. Recently, I worked with a personal coach who said these exact words to me?.that if I wasn't sharing my talents, I was ripping off the world of all that God intended for me. This really made a powerful impact. Everything you are today is because of your thoughts and your decisions that you have made as a result of those thoughts. In the book, If You Think You Can, the word decision comes from the Latin root meaning "to cut off from." "There comes a time in every person's life when making a decision is truly necessary. A decision where you thought so deeply in what you want that there is no option for turning back."

Make the decision today to gain your power back and lose the weight. The answers are within you. Keep focused on your goal. Surround yourself with people who will support your decision and release those who won't. Give up the lifestyle that supported your weight gain. See the weight as a gift to you so that you will be conscious in becoming all you can be. We all get off track and the weight becomes a reminder that you want something different, something more meaningful. Again, it's very simple. To quote Wayne Dyer, "Surround yourself with the conditions you want to produce."

Who are the people you are going to surround yourself?

Who are the people you are going to have limited contact?

Who are the people you are going to let go?

Just to let you know what is coming up in January. I'll be offering a teleconference call to help you outline your goals for 2005. The only cost to you is the price of the phone call. I'm so excited to be able to talk to you-I'm shakin' my booty right now in anticipation.

Remember that you are already whole and complete just as God created you. You're peeling back the layers to discover the beauty that already exists-you only need to see it. Quick, grab a mirror or go stand in front of the mirror and repeat after me. Put energy into these words and smile while you're saying them.

I am the most beautiful person on this earth!I am a wonderful child of God!I am powerful!I am God's gift to the world!I am my ideal weight!I love myself!

Thank you for being you!
