The 7th Key to Mindful Weight Loss
Written by: Kathy Best, May 2, 2018
“Love yourself” may sound so obvious and simplistic, but the truth is, it is probably one of the most difficult keys for most people to master. When I say “love yourself”, I don’t mean the conceited, superficial, ego-centered, superiority complex, false pride mask that so many people walk around projecting out to the world. Love yourself means that you can look yourself in the eyes each and every day, (we all have a favorite mirror we use to get ready for the day), and say, “I love you so much!! You are perfectly imperfect and are doing the very best that you can do in each and every moment and I am so proud of you! I have the utmost respect for you and I cherish you with all my heart! You are beautiful, intelligent, powerful, courageous, strong, kind, compassionate, generous, loving, vibrantly healthy, and completely perfect in Spirit’s eyes, which are my eyes too! You are a magnificent light created in the eternal image of Source and like the Universal Spirit you are a co-creator of life and the co-creator of your life!” When you can start looking in your eyes and saying these statements, (or something better that you created for yourself), with passion, belief, compassion, and love in your heart you will begin to see miracles in your life.
You cannot change your body, life, relationships, or anything else in your world with the same thinking that created your current problems. Life flows in cycles, cycles often seem to repeat themselves when we aren’t paying attention to the message. If you always do, say, or believe what you’ve always done, said, and believed, you will continue to get what you’ve always gotten. Life, Source, Spirit, God, or the Universe does not play favorites or punish some and reward others based on randomness or on our supposed sins. Judgement is a human ego concept and has nothing to do with the Creator. Every one of us is divinely created, loved, and united with our divinity. The only difference is that some of us know it and some of us don’t. You were created to live a life of joy, prosperity, and love. You can have, do, be, and experience your heart’s desire. Every thought, belief, feeling, word, and action is a prayer or request for what you want more of. Be mindful of what you focus your attention on and practice making them all wonderful, positive prayers of the joy and prosperity you want to bring into your life. When you do this you will begin to see how the Universe aligns with you to orchestrate your intentions and always has! Even as you grow in your confidence and creative powers problems will come up, but they will not devastate you as they used to and you will be able to resolve them with more ease, peace, and calm and less drama, fear, and frustration. Remember to be gentle and forgiving with yourself. Your beliefs, thoughts, behaviors, and problems were not created overnight and they will not change instantly, but the more you practice self-love and self-respect the easier and more enjoyable it will become and the faster your good will manifest.
