More often than not people believe that weight loss is strictly a physical process. After all, we look in the mirror, and it reflects what the whole world can see too.
Then, we become distracted by this illusion of ourselves, and we also forget that we are not just a body – we are a vessel of a spirit. This is exactly why we have to learn ways to see past in the reflection of the mirror, as well as gain lasting weight loss, as well as physical fitness.
Physical weight loss and fitness are closely related to our thoughts, as well as our spiritual well-being.
Sometimes, it is quite easy to think that people are not going to notice us if we add some extra pounds. That is not true at all. We garner the attention which we are hardly trying to avoid, as of the deep seeded pain which we are carrying in our core self.
Simply said, we are something more than just a physical body. Our logic may deem that losing weight is only connected with our physical body. The physical body reflects our physical aspects of too much weight. It also harbors painful joints, illness, as well as chronic sleep problems.
This is the physical manifestation of the problems that trouble us.
So, the first step to losing weight is acknowledging that we are perfect the way we were created. The problem is not ours. It actually belongs to the abuser, and they wanted to give it to us. So, we should let it go.
Beyond our bodies, our minds also think thoughts all the time. Our brain does not shut down unless we permit it to be quiet.
In order to reach this ‘quiet’ state, we can meditate or drink a glass of wine, or even do some exercises. The question actually becomes, do thoughts stop, slow down, as well as become clear or they merely continue uninterrupted?
The second step is to gain some understanding, as well as control over our thoughts. In fact, our belief system is based on our thoughts, as well as our feelings. We are influenced by all those events which occur to us in the physical, as well as the spiritual realms. Our thoughts are energy, and we are energy too. We should focus on becoming the energy beacon which reflects our internal beliefs.
The spirit portion is actually not necessary as clear-cut as our body and mind. Indeed, it is something less physically tangible. One part of it is the energy flow through our physical body, and mind, as well as our energy field that surrounds our body. It is the soul essence and that part which is activated when following your heart or dreams.
Our spiritual body holds onto the energy of the trauma or abuse, and it also reflects our physical being, emotional state, as well as thoughts. It carries our past life, unresolved problems and it is also our connection to the Universal Life Force energies.
Those three parts of us are the key to successful weight loss, as well as to attaining greater fitness. If we believe that we can lose weight, we will lose weight.
Our self-talk actually directs our physical appearance and our spiritual presence. Each of them is equally important to address when we are making changes in our lives.
Losing weight is actually a fundamental life change. It takes courage, strength, as well as determination, and it is one of the most critical choices which we can make. It is for no one else but only for us.
This new, challenging, yet amazing journey I've been on for over a year has completely opened my eyes to some amazing things, especially in the spiritual part of life.One thing I'm still working on is loving myself more. Oh yeah!!! And NOT being in my head all the time! Man! That's a hard habit to break! Lol!
On the health and wellness aspect of what I've learned when it comes to finding the BEST ways to see long lasting results is that most of us are forgetting a very important piece of the puzzle. -So, the first step to losing weight and feeling better is acknowledging that we are perfect the way we were created-.
What I have been saying for the last 2 years is that I'm a recovering perfectionist, and striving for perfection will only cause more damage. But what I didn't realize until recently is that I was/am already perfect. My journey continues to stay on this path that this article talks about.
If you're interested in my progress, I'll keep you posted! 💜💚💜
