Close Kept Secrets to Weight Loss Lesson #5

Wow! You must be on fire by now burning and churning up those calories on your way to your ideal weight. I know that taking steps to better your life is not always easy. It takes courage to do this. Sometimes it's easier just to keep in the mind set of surviving and do what you've always done. When you do what you've always done, you'll get what you've always gotten. Is this what you desire? Or do you want something different, something that is absolutely amazing?

You know what I believe? I believe you're ready to burst out of your shell and manifest everything that is yours by Divine right. You are so ready to soar above the clouds that nothing can stop you from achieving success. God has these plans for you, and he wants you thriving, not surviving. You're now recognizing what you need to do in order to obey His commands. To thrive means paying attention to yourself so that you can be all that God intends for you. If sometimes you feel that you're not living God's plan, He forgives you even when you're not connected to Him. Now, if God can forgive you, then let's work on forgiving yourself.

I want you to take out a mirror and look into it while reading the following statements. If you don't have a hand-held one, then go stand by a mirror.

________________ (Fill in your name), I forgive you for _____________________ (fill in the blank with whatever it is you need to forgive yourself for). I know that you were doing the best you could.

________________ , I forgive you for _________________________.

________________ , I forgive you for _________________________.

________________ , I forgive you for _________________________.

There might be several things you want to forgive yourself for or you might just have a few things. The important thing is to focus on forgiving so you can release it.

Last week I worked with a client who had an amazing break through. Her core issue was not forgiving herself for making mistakes in her second marriage, which led to divorce. She has been very hard on herself for seven years because she thought she asked all the right questions and should have known better. I did chakra work with her and the message was loud and clear?..FORGIVE YOURSELF. (Incidentally, I will explain chakra work in another lesson).

Now, while looking into the mirror, take your right hand and form a fist and rub over the heart and repeat out loud:

Even though I have had the issue of not forgiving myself, I deeply love and accept myself and this issue is healed. Divine Love floods my whole body with light and every cell is filled with love. Say this ten times.

In addition, while the mirror is in front you, tell yourself, "You look marvelous, baby!!"

How do you feel? Stupendous! Awesome! Supercalifragilisticexpealidocious! (Okay, I am a fan of Mary Poppins and I love that word).

Practice! Practice! Practice! (Affirmations, Rapid Eye, Emotional Freedom Techniques, gratitude, forgiveness). The more you do it, the more it just becomes natural to bring in all the positives and surround yourself with them. Your ideal weight is already there. Believe it! Know it! Expect it!

I appreciate you and your efforts and am so grateful that you're part of my life. I am sending you pink light energy. Hug yourself with this light and be surrounded in love.

Love and hugs,
