Weight Loss and Teaching a Dog To Sit

Jack Russel terriers

I’ve written a lot about weight loss recently because I think it’s a very misunderstood area.  For some reason many of us who are well versed in energy work, universal laws, law of attraction and such topics, don’t realise that the same laws apply to weight and body image issues – they do!

Before I moved into Energy Therapies, I trained in Dog Behaviour. We used kind, effective, reward based training never allowing the dog to fail and very rarely, if ever, using the word “no”.

The trick was to take the dog’s mind where you wanted the body to go, quietly, gently and without force. For example, to teach the dog to sit you hold a treat in front of and just above the dog’s face. If you have their attention and position the treat correctly, their bottom will eventually lower to the floor – success! Most importantly, you have not used force, you have not created an unpleasant experience nor have you created resistance or conflict – even bigger success!!

The very same can be said about successful weight loss. If you get your mind, in our case, the subconscious mind, to go where you want your body to go, without using force (will-power) or creating resistance or conflict, you are on your way to success.

Unlike dogs, most of us already have conflict and resistance in our minds, so first it is essential to clear out all the old emotional debris and this is where energy therapies and affirmations come into their own.

One lady wrote to me recently after having used our Heal Your Relationship With Food meditation once:-

“I had used your Food meditation the other night for the first time (I always feel guilty about food choices even if all I’ve had is a bagel and I find it difficult to know when I’m full, etc.) Well this morning I laid out my breakfast and was happily eating it and then with about 3/4 of it done, I suddenly decided I didn’t want any more, I just wasn’t hungry any longer. This might seem very normal for most people but that doesn’t happen to me. So I was very surprised and pleased!”

At a subconscious level that meditation had eased the emotional drivers that were causing her to over-eat. With them out of the way, it was then completely effortless for her body to tell her when it was full and for her not to finish her breakfast.

Using force is by far the hardest, most unpleasant and least effective strategy for both dog training and weight loss!

Healing the Weight Loss Struggle of the Empath

I’ve written a lot about weight loss recently because I think it’s a very misunderstood area.  For some reason many of us who are well versed in energy work, universal laws, law of attraction and such topics, don’t realise that the same laws apply to weight and body image issues – they do!

As I wrote in my Make Friends With Food article, everything we’ve learned in personal or spiritual development studies can equally be applied to weight and body image issues. We have a relationship with food, just as we have a relationship with everything and everyone else in our lives. If we create conflict and struggle in that relationship with our negative beliefs we simply create more resistance and more struggle.

I covered a lot of the reasons for stubborn weight issues in my article What Was Going On In Your Life The Last Time You Were at Your Ideal Weight? some of which apply to empaths too. But there are also a few different reasons an empath may struggle with weight issues.

In my e-book, Healing the Heart of the Empath, I described how so many of us have spent our lives being told we are “too” something. “Too sensitive, too emotional, too serious, too passionate, too opinionated too ….Fill in the blank, it’s been endless.” Many of us also struggle to know where our energy and emotions end and other people’s begin and this can contribute to over-eating and failure to lose weight.

As with everything our bodies do, there are deeper, eminently, sensible and logical reasons for it but until we understand those reasons, it can be hard to know where to turn when we keep failing to lose or maintain weight.

Firstly let’s look at being “too much” for people. I hope those of you who have read the e-book or used my Healing the Heart of the Empath meditation package are leaving that belief behind by now! But even when we have healed the emotional roots, our bodies take a bit of time to catch up. Your body may still be holding on to excess weight in an effort to slow your energy down and stop being “too much” for people. The comfort aspect of over-eating may feel good in the moment but after a few minutes you feel that heavy feeling which is a great way of slowing your energy down!

Look at where you still believe you are “too much” for others and see if your over-eating is related to that belief.

The second reason an empath may struggle with weight issues, is a lack of emotional grounding. If you are going into the emotional fray every day without consciously grounding yourself, your body may have decided it has to ground you!  If you are giving too much of yourself in a healing capacity, over-eating dulls your senses and your sensitivity giving you a much needed emotional break.  (Once again, I marvel at the wisdom of our bodies and how they really are always trying to do the very best they can to support us!)

Consciously and deliberately find another way to ground yourself and your body will move towards it’s natural balance again.

Using our free Heal Your Relationship with Food Affirmations will help you change your energy and beliefs and therefore your relationship with food. Read or tap along with them for a few days and you’ll feel the difference!

When You Change Your Relationship With Food, You Change The Way Your Body Reacts To It!

Most of what we’ve been taught about achieving and maintaining our ideal weight simply isn’t true! Calorie counting, weighing and measuring have their place, but if you don’t address the emotional drivers behind over-eating or choosing food that doesn’t nourish you, any weight loss you achieve will be hard won and almost certainly won’t last.

 

Everything we learned in personal or spiritual development studies can equally be applied to weight and body image issues.  We have a relationship with food, just as we have a relationship with everything and everyone else in our lives. If we create conflict and struggle in that relationship with our negative beliefs we simply create more resistance and more struggle.

What We Resist Persists

When we push against something we automatically create resistance.  When we focus only on what we want, not what we don’t want, it manifests for us. When we focus on the end result, rather than perceived hurdles and difficulties, we reach the desired result a lot faster and painlessly.

I covered a lot of the reasons for stubborn weight issues in my article What Was Going On In Your Life The Last Time You Were at Your Ideal Weight? so I won’t cover that ground again.

Emotional Drivers

We know that in other areas of life, making war against something never achieves peace.  The same is true of our relationship with food and how food affects our bodies. If we are not aware of the emotional drivers behind our behaviour we are powerless to control the behaviour for very long. Willpower alone will only take us so far.

The truth is, when you clear the emotional drivers behind over-eating or eating what you (or others) consider to be the ‘wrong’ foods you take back your own power and your body, in its infinite wisdom will bring itself back into balance.

Boost Your Immune System With E.F.T.

Boost Your Immune System With E.F.T.

Boost Your Immune System With E.F.T.

Our immune systems are designed to recognise and eliminate viruses, bacteria and other foreign invaders. For the most part they do an amazing job!  However, our immune systems can become less effective when we are under pressure, feel like giving up, are pushing too hard, feel insecure, threatened or manipulated. If you are feeling under the weather, check to see if you are feeling any of those emotions. That will give you ideas for what to tap on. But you can start boosting your immune system right now by tapping on the following the suggestions.

If you are not familiar with E.F.T. Just follow the tapping points illustrated here.

EFT Tapping Points Illustration(For more instructions about tapping  points, pop over to my article about using E.F.T. to ease cold and flu symptoms.)

If you have symptoms of illness, pain or discomfort, use those in your set up statement as you tap on your Karate Point. For example, “Even though I have this cold, I deeply and completely love, accept and forgive myself”. Repeat this three times then tap the Eyebrow Point gently, around ten times, saying “I have this cold”. Move to the Side Of Eye point and repeat, “I have this cold”. Repeat this at all the tapping points finishing off with the Top of Your Head point.

If you don’t have any symptoms but want to give your immune system a boost try tapping a few rounds saying these, or similar statements:- “I know my immune system is doing the most amazing job and I deeply and completely love, accept and thank my immune system”.  “My immune system is fabulous, it knows exactly what it is doing and it keeps me healthy and well. I deeply and completely love and thank my immune system”. “My immune system is powerful, wise and strong. I am grateful to my fantastic immune system and I deeply and completely love, accept and thank my wonderful immune system for keeping me safe and healthy”. “My immune system is doing the most fantastic job protecting me from all those viruses and bacteria and I deeply and completely love, accept and thank my amazing immune system, thank you, immune system, for everything you do for me”.

 

 

The Best Way To Prepare For 2018 And Help The Planet!

The Best Way To Prepare For 2018 And Help The Planet!

Top Tips To Prepare For 2018

lady in red and candles

2018 is a year of rising heart energy, a year where the feminine energy and the energy of no more secrets continues to rise. While we may have thought, imagined or fantasised about what that would look like, it doesn’t look the way we imagined it would!

As empaths, sensitives and lightworkers we know what is really going on. We feel energy and see the bigger picture but even knowing that, we can sometimes lose our focus and get sucked into the energies of fear, conflict, separation and dissonance. So what are the best things to do to prepare for 2018?

Heal Your Own Emotional Wounds Now!

In order to be as effective in playing the part you came here to play at this time of huge transition, you need to be in good emotional shape yourself. If we don’t take care of ourselves first we can fall into blame, judgement, anger, frustration, self-pity, depression and a whole host of other dark places. So please think about that, are there any areas that you still need to heal in yourself? If there are, now is the time to recognise and attend to them with love and compassion (no beating yourself up or self-judgement!).

Make Sure Your Own Emotional Boundaries are Strong and Healthy

Being so attuned to other people’s feelings and emotions, empaths, sensitives and lightworkers are often unaware of where their boundaries end and other people’s begin. We often take on other people’s issues and fears and we aren’t even aware of it. This can be devastating to our sense of well-being and balance, you can’t remain heart-centred when your (or what you think are your) emotions are all over the place!

Stop Trying To Get Others To Understand You

This has been part of the life path of so many of us! So many of us have felt misunderstood all our lives. We have tried relentlessly to get people to understand us and for most of us, it hasn’t worked! What if simply being yourself and forgetting what other people think of you was enough?

Remember That Your Light and Energy Are Making A Profound Difference

When we feel we are small and powerless it is easy to forget that we are here for a reason and that our presence on the planet at this time truly does make a difference. This is true whether you are on a deliberate spiritual path or you simply spread your love, compassion, wisdom as you go about your daily life. Your light is much more powerful and important than you ever imagined!

Shake Off Fear

Fear and hiding constrict and diminish us on all levels. Fear causes us to become smaller, it silences us and appears to make us safer. After all, if we can’t be seen or heard we are less likely to be attacked. On a human level this makes perfect sense, however on an emotional, spiritual and physical level there is a huge price to pay for constriction. Just think what can happen to your heart if your arteries constrict! For help to step out of fear download my free Release, Heal & Transform Fear guided meditation on the Release, Heal & Transform mobile app. or as an MP3.

Love Your Own Heart First

Use your own love to heal your own heart. So many of us have decided that being an empath or sensitive soul is challenging and painful. We can attribute any meaning we like to anything! So why not decide that being an empath is an incredibly wonderful and powerful thing rather than believing it is a weakness or curse?

Bring More Love into the World

Bringing more love into the world couldn’t be simpler and it starts with you. Send your own powerful love to you own heart by putting your hand on your heart and telling it how much you love it.

Listen to an excerpt of Healing For Your Heart

The Best Way To Prepare For 2018 And Help The Planet!

The best way to prepare for 2018 and help the planet usher in the rising heart energy is to spend any free time you have from now until the New Year, healing your own wounds, giving your love to your own heart. From the time you read this until 2018 (and hopefully beyond!) treat yourself as you would treat a beloved child, lover or pet. That is the very best way you can prepare for 2018.

If you need help healing and sending love to your own heart, I have created a special package, Healing The Heart of the Empath to help you rebuild your self-confidence, heal your heart, trust your creativity and intuition and most importantly realise just how important your presence is on the planet at this time of huge transition.
