What words would you use to describe yourself? How is your internal conversation with yourself? Would you be one that could have a long list of loving things about yourself? Or would you find it easier to make a list of more negative thoughts or fear thoughts about yourself?
I know over the years when I was interviewing people, it appeared easier for people to list their weaknesses than their strengths. How can we receive what we want in life when we are not comfortable talking about our strengths or things that we love about ourselves? Are you fortunate to have learned to focus on loving yourself, focus on what’s right with your life? Think about what you are saying to yourself and about yourself. How kind are you to yourself?
I am teaching this class “A Course in Weight Loss – 21 Spiritual Lessons for Surrendering Your Weight Forever” based on Marianne Williamson’s book titled the same. All of us have tried numerous “diets” and have mostly had the weight return. The premise of this course is that weight problems are not about your relationship with food; it is about your relationship with love. “The cause of our excess weight is in our mind. Mind is the cause-body is effect.” (p. 10). The course is a journey in loving ourselves.
I can say that my words to myself have not always been the kindest, most loving words with excess weight on my body. What shifts in your thinking would have to be made to have more loving thoughts? Maybe you don’t have a weight problem. See how your words are creating your reality in an area that you are not having the results you want. If you think more about what you want in your life, and what is right in your life, you ultimately create more of what you want rather than what you don’t want.
