The Best Weight Loss Advice

I am one of those lucky people who lives in a state with places and for hiking, beaches for combing or beautiful cities to wander. Finding something to do here is not hard. But we have a high occurrence of depression due to our weather (lots of rain) and early nightfall in the fall/winter. This causes many of us to gain weight.

Like most people I stress about the weight gain. What I have noticed though, is that focusing on it and being diligent about what I eat and my exercise wasn’t helping. It was infuriating! Then it hit me! What you focus on grows. If you are meditating on losing weight, exercising even when you want to garden instead and limiting your diet, you are focusing on unwanted fat.

I then realized that on days where I gave up and just did what I WANTED to do, the scale moved more. Basically, when I forgot about weight loss, I lost weight. When I obsessed about it, I either plateaued or gained.

So… the best weight loss advice I ever got, I got from my spirit guides. They have been pushing me to go beach comb. Find sea glass, have fun. Basically, go do something that makes you forget about the number on the scale, and that lifts you up.

So, your homework today is “go do a hobby that makes you forget about time, weight, stress or problems”. I guarantee as soon as you truly lose yourself in this hobby, the answers will be found.

Don’t be a Pinterest fail

I’m not gonna lie, I am guilty of getting in to a spiritual hygiene routine, which is wonderful, but I take it one step too far and become OBSESSED with the routines. I will get to the point I feel like it’s bad luck if I miss a step.

I become so focused on micro managing my manifestation process that I can’t see or I miss all the easy options the universe gives me.

I’m the person who sees exactly what I want online, but instead of spending $50.00 on the item I want, I spend $75.00 on the supplies and waste 5 hours making a shitty version, which I then accept as what I deserve because clearly I didn’t deserve the real version, since mine turned out bad. Seems super logical right?!

How often do you do a version of this in your life? Take the harder route because the easy route is too good to be true. Miss the cues because it came too easily. Ignore the offer because you haven’t struggled enough. This is all literally the same logic we put in to our Pinterest fails.

We are convinced that we can’t have exactly what we want. So we pare down your dream to what we would accept. And we struggle to get that watered down version. Meanwhile, the universe is like…. if that’s what you want…. ok…..

So, stop doing that! Accept that offer, see that cue, know that both are the universe making your life easy because you deserve it!

It’s one thing to be crafty and have a good time making something unique. It’s another to try to copy something on the cheap because you don’t think you deserve the real deal. See the difference?

Schedule a basic reading and add on a situational reading to help see where you get stuck! I’ll also give you a few tailored suggestions on how to change these blocks quickly and easily.

Lack Mentality

My car is convinced I’m starving him because he can see the bottom of his bowl. He can’t see the food around it, he only sees what he doesn’t have. This is lack mentality. I used to think it only applied to how you saw money. It came to me the other day, that my lack mentality shows up in how I address food. Kind of like my cat.

In my case tho, I restrict my calories, convinced I will gain weight if I have any “no no items”. In my head sugar of any kind goes straight to my hips. And because I have been brought up to believe that how I look is all important, I restrict myself.

I kept getting the message to let go of the lack mentality that isn’t serving me, and I kept thinking “why is this coming to me!?” My relationship with money is healthy. But food, yeah, that is anything but healthy.

I was raised by a woman who thought I only looked great when I was basically starving myself. At the age of 11 she told me I needed to make sure I wasn’t too fat. I was constantly told to suck my stomach in, and called thunder thighs. (Mind you I was a competitive gymnast my entire life).

When I was pregnant, and shortly after my c-sections, my mom would show me her post baby pics bragging about how quickly she got back in her jeans… then would tell me “you’ll get back to yourself soon”.

Once she died, I realized just how unhealthy she was. I realized I could never say the things she said to me to my kids. It was eye opening. Yet my relationship with food didn’t improve.

I was talking to a fellow calorie/carb-a-phobe the other day who said that the calorie counter I suggested to her suggested she eat WAY too many carbs. And that’s when I realized how the relationship to lack.

Food is energy, it is literally how our body fuels itself. If we restrict it, it finds ways to store “energy”. It figured out ways to keep itself alive. How can I be on the vibration of abundance and be simultaneously be obsessed about eating a normal 1500 calorie diet (I was down to 1000 calories while working out, and was perplexed as to why I was exhausted).

So long story short, if you are not seeing abundance in your life, where are you restricting yourself in an unhealthy way?! It can be friends, love, food, entertainment. I’m not saying to binge in any of these areas, but find out what is normal, and trust that it’s normal, and your perspective is skewed.

No Man is an Island

This may shock you as it shocked Mj, but if you want to manifest ANYTHING you MUST include other people. I tend to forget this or at the very least overlook this aspect of manifestation.

I kept getting the message that I needed to work on my relationships, to which I kept thinking, my marriage is fine! We are happier than we have ever been. But, I listened to my guides and put on a “relationship meditation”. I figured it wouldn’t hurt to be happier, lol.

Not more than 5 minutes after listening to this meditation, my renter texted me saying she wanted to buy the house she’s renting from me (I had told her I wanted to sell) and at the same time my realtor/good friend texted me also. Right there I was shown why relationships matter….

So, I’m now on a mission to reach out whenever I get the whim to reach out. I’m going to smile at the people around me more, and engage in conversations with the cashiers and waitresses. I’m embarrassed to say that I have been known to be the person who seems oblivious to everyone.
