“The problem is not your thighs, Sweetie, the problem is your head.” — Carrie on Sex and the City
You’ve heard it said that you are what you eat. Don’t believe it. You’re NOT what you eat. You’re what you THINK. It’s not the food. It’s what you believe about the food. What you believe about the food you eat determines how it affects your body. Your body is a direct reflection of your thoughts. The inner world of your mind creates the outer world of your body, therefore, if you want to change your body, start by changing your thoughts. Here’s the secret: Changing the way you eat is optional. Changing the way you THINK about what you eat is essential.
Every thought causes a reaction in the body. Think about a lemon. Imagine biting into a juicy lemon wedge right now. Can you taste the sour, tangy juice? Do you notice the saliva forming in your mouth? It’s a psychosomatic response. Your body is reacting to your thoughts.
Do you think your overweight condition is set in stone? It’s not. Quantum Physics tells us that nothing is fixed, that everything is in a state of potential. Einstein’s 1905 formula E = mc2 explains that Energy and matter are interchangeable; that, in reality, everything is Energy. The fundamental aspect of the Universe is dancing, fluid, ever-changing Energy. The Energy of the Universe is shapeable, formable, and moldable; and you shape, form and mold this Energy with your thoughts. Quantum Physics has scientifically proven that you create your own reality based on where you focus your attention.
My client, Sandra, literally reshaped her body with her thoughts. Realizing that weight loss begins in the mind, she has transformed her body into a fat-burning machine with her thoughts. She now imagines herself thin. She now thinks of herself as a thin person and she likes herself as a thin person. She likes her body and happily gives it healthy, light foods. In just three months she has lost thirty pounds and is well on her way to her ideal size. As she thinks of herself as thin and imagines herself thin and feels good about herself, she is actually becoming thin for the first time in her life.
“You have absolute control over but one thing, and that is your thoughts. If you fail to control your own mind, you may be sure you will control nothing else.” – Napoleon Hill
It’s true. You have complete control over nothing but your thoughts and, happily, that’s the only thing you need to control. When you control your thoughts, you control your life. Your body responds to the instructions it receives from your mind. So, as you tell your body what you expect from it, it will begin to behave accordingly. When you consciously choose your thoughts, you can consciously choose your body. Your thoughts created the body you now have and your thoughts can create the body you would like to have.
As a society, Americans have tried EVERYTHING to fight the battle of the bulge. We’ve tried surgery, supplements, drugs, liposuction to vacuum fat out of the body, inserting stables in the ear, tummy-tucks to remove excess skin and fat, gastric bypass to reduce the stomach to the size of a walnut, vinyl sauna suits to sweat off pounds, and EVEN caffeine tights. Yes, Americans have tried everything to be thin – everything except one thing – applying the power of the mind. We’ve tried every type of action. Now in the Age of Mind, it’s time to apply the awesome and unlimited power of the mind.
