Being overweight doesn’t mean you have to feel bad about yourself. That energy is counterproductive to your health. While you’re making progress towards your ideal weight you can feel good about yourself and appreciate your body at the same time. This life-giving attention invites waves of healing energy into your life.
Exercising and eating a balanced meal are important steps to shedding those extra pounds and you hear so much about that. But what about the more intangible aspects that affect us on a subconscious level?
You could be exercising and eating right and still feel indifferent to what you currently see in the mirror. And this negative feeling towards your body creates hindrances to enjoying your life on your journey to reaching your weight goals.
Let’s look at what you can do to shift your thinking so you can positively influence your emotions followed by your actions and then your results.
Ask yourself this question, “What can you begin to feel good about today?”
Feel good about yourself as you are thankful - bless your body
You are alive, you are here, it’s a new day and all is well. Breathe deeply; breathe in life-energy into your cells. See your cells becoming rejuvenated with every breath you take. See your blood being flushed and cleansed.
Take a great big stretch loosening the tension in your body and allowing the fresh breath to move through you, again as you breathe deeply. Give your body the attention it needs, your undivided attention.
Use affirmations to nourish your body
“You are beautiful. I love you. You are strong and healthy. You are full of life. I fill you with love, peace and joy.”
As you repeat these words see and feel the beauty in your body. See and feel the strength and health. See and feel the love, the peace, the joy and the life flowing into and through your body.
Doesn’t that feel good as opposed to the negativity you’ve been pushing into your body? Now, your turn; create some more affirmations that you can use every time you look at yourself in the mirror. You don’t have to be rigid about it; you can be spontaneous and add new ones each day.
Connect with your inner core
All life comes from the universal power, flows through your inner core and into your outer experiences. Connect now with your inner core and as you consciously allow the Presence of Unconditional Love to flow into you and fill your inner being, see and feel this energy emanating from within and expanding into all areas of your life.
