Losing Weight with Law of Attraction

Law of Attraction Weight LossAn LOA weight loss coach recently sent a guest post on how to drop weight using law of attraction.

I haven’t written about that subject lately, so I was interested to share it.

Until I read it.

It was about she used meditation and self love to stick to an organic raw foods diet.

Yikes! A lot of people could get the wrong impression from that – that her success came from eating a particular way.

She was all about using spiritual processes to stick to a “healthy” diet.

That is not LOA weight loss.

At least not my idea of it.

Because we don’t necessarily know what food or exercise serves our body best. But our body does. A nutritionist, a doctor, your physical trainer, your spouse – even an LOA weight loss coach – doesn’t know.

They can’t know, because they can’t hear your inner guidance.

Conscious creators know it’s all vibrational. And each of us is unique. What serves you nutritionally could be my undoing. And vice versa.

We can’t copy eating habits or exercise routines and expect the same results.

What we can do is learn how to activate the vibrations of what we want. And then do whatever feels best.

That’s my idea of consciously manifesting a more ideal body: find the frequency of body love and then follow her instructions. She knows best, all I have to do is listen for what she wants and then give it.

Maybe she does prefer organic raw food, but it would have to be her idea, because I would never impose that on her (again).

I did a bunch of crazy eating routines in my ridiculously misinformed youth – including an entire year of no sugar. Another year of no fat. A couple months of no processed foods, half a year vegan. And I won’t recount all the juicing and cleansing fasts. That’s insane stuff when it isn’t prompted by inner wisdom or body intuition.

One doc said I ruined my metabolism and launched adrenal fatigue with all the fasting and ridiculous diets. This was way before I knew about energy, attraction and my body’s wisdom.

 

If I were writing an article on how to lose weight with law of attraction, I’d say this:

Find the frequency of what you want, then do what feels best.

That’s it.

Finding the frequency of your desire could be done many ways:

There are lots of ways to shift the vibe. And that’s what you want to do first.

After that, learning to trust and respond to your body’s preference is your only work.

Sometimes your body might say ‘nap’ instead of ‘workout.’ She might prefer dancing over CrossFit. She might suggest chocolate instead of grapefruit one day.

When you’re dialed on what you want, you can trust whatever your body asks for.

You won’t know what serves best until you tune in to that frequency and listen for inspiration.

Lots of folks (mostly muggles, but some LOA savvy people, too) make decisions about what’s best for their body from a place of dissatisfaction, frustration or even fear. We’re not likely to make successful choices from that vibration.

And sometimes we mistake physical addictions for true desires, so it’s helpful to get clear on the difference. (That’s actually a great time for a skilled coach like the one who wrote!)

But imposing external rules that drown out our inner knowing is not the way to go.

So. For the record. To use your creative powers to manifest a more ideal body, just engage your skills to find the vibration of what you want and let your body lead you to it.

And when your inner guidance says “organic raw” or “gluten free” or whatever it might say, please don’t assume that’s the healthy diet we should all be on.

If Your Workout Doesn't Work, Tweak This

a mental tweak to get more out of your workoutSometimes even conscious creators slip into old habits when it comes to how we think about our bodies and working out.
If you’re exercising to get rid of flab, sag or jiggle – versus working out for the love of movement or in aspiration of good health or a fab figure – you can make a minor tweak for big results.
Here’s the deal we sometimes forget:
Any time we engage action out of resistance, we enhance what we don’t want.
(Which means you may be inadvertently building a bigger belly, flabbier arms, a jigglier butt – or whatever else you’re trying to get rid of – in that time spent at the gym.)
Effective workouts aren’t just about the body. Harness the power of your mind to get the most out of your physical training.
Like, if you’re at Zumba every Tuesday because your friend told you it would get rid of that baby weight you haven’t been able to drop, don’t be surprised if it doesn’t change a thing. It’s a totally different vibe to Zumba because you love moving your body and are looking forward to feeling even better in it than it is to Zumba because you hate your muffin top.
Or if you’re on the treadmill to run off the middle age spread you detest, that’s not as effective as running with the intention of a fit physique.
Can you feel the difference? Same action, different focus, leading to very different results.
That’s because any time we’re focused on “not this,” that fixation can’t take us where we want to go. It defies the laws of our universe. What we focus on grows.
(It is possible that strong belief can get temporary results, but sustaining that in the long run is challenging.)
So it’s important to be dialed on positive intentions and results rather than spotlighting the contrast that inspired you to the desire. Make sense?
Seems like a small thing but it actually makes a big difference.

Yesterday I wore a pair of shorts that weren’t particularly flattering to the thighs. My first thought was that I needed to get back to the exercise room.
Which is what I did later that day. And working out on the Bowflex is where I remembered that exercising to avoid what I don’t want (untoned thighs) was a waste of a workout.

If I’m not lunging or squatting with a focus on health, fitness, beauty, self-love or whatever I’m really wanting – I may as well be lounging in the shade with a good book. Enjoying myself in any other way would be better than trying to get rid of something I don’t want.
Because we get what we think about.
So if you’re working out while dwelling on flabby arms or stubborn belly fat – tune your mind instead to thoughts of how you want them to look and feel. Activate the feelings of satisfaction and enjoyment in place of loathing and discomfort. You’ll get a lot more bang for your buck with that vibrational shift.
There’s another way to get more out of your workouts, too.
Set an intention before you start exercising as to how you want your body to respond. Jeanna Gabellini taught me this trick: she used to intend that her body responded to this 30 minute workout as if it were 3 hours. Way to leverage the power of your mind in support of your physical experience!
My point with this is that as we’re flexing the muscles of our body to enhance our physique, let’s remember to also flex the power of our mind to make sure we get where we want to go.

Q&A: How to Help Another Heal?

How to Help a Loved One HealHow to help manifest a loved one’s healing? It’s a situation many of us bump into sooner or later.
Today’s question comes from a reader who has tried visioning her son’s health and wellness, but his symptoms persist.
Here’s the question:

It’s easier to manifest healing in oneself. However I am having challenges when it comes to healing for my son.
He developed some pain on his legs and all the doctors and lab tests come up clean. The doctors are stumped and I am at my wits’ end. I try to see him healed and well again but … it does not seem to be working.
Any ideas or tips on what process I can do?

I’ve run into this challenge myself when it comes to the health and vitality of my dogs and cats. (That’s one of my toughest times for being able to focus on what I want vs. don’t want.)
Since this can be a highly charged situation even for LOA savvy folks, I’m soliciting your wisdom.
Thanks in advance for sharing your thoughts and experiences, fellow creators!

LOA Approved Diets?

law of attraction diets

It seems everyone’s talking about diets this month, which made me wonder if there’s room for a good LOA-er in those conversations.
Is there such a thing as a law of attraction friendly diet?
One that doesn’t violate our understanding that vibration rules the day, not carbs or calories?
Because any time we set aside our own inner knowing or inspiration in favor of someone else’s rules, it’s easy to get out of sync with our best path to health.

There’s no doubt that many creators become inspired to embrace specific traditional diets that allow certain foods and ban others.  (I know a fellow LOA coach who had a lot of fun losing 50+ pounds on Weight Watchers, and another who dropped two dress sizes when she started paleo eating.)

That’s all well and good when someone finds a traditional diet that lights them up.  (We know whatever we’re inspired to when we’re aligned to what we want is bound to serve us well.)
But what I’m wondering about is a diet in accordance with what manifesters know about energy and thought – one that honors our understanding that there’s no such thing as a “good” food or a “bad” food and doesn’t impose rules that potentially drown out our own inner guidance.
After hearing from several of you in the comments, here’s what our updated list looks like so far:

Paul McKenna’s I Can Make You Thin.
The Joy Diet (Martha Beck)
The Laughter Diet
The Sex Diet
The Donut Whisperer
Sondra Ray’s The Only Diet There Is
Carmela Ramaglia’s Happy Calories Don’t Count
The Gabriel Method

Let’s take a look at a couple of these …
From I Can Make You Thin, Paul’s advice may not be considered a “diet” per se, but more of eating guidelines. These instructions seem very much in alignment with what deliberate creators know about how the world works.  (Meaning, it isn’t the food that makes the difference, it’s our thoughts, i.e. vibration, that dictate our experience.)
Paul’s four rules are:

1. Eat only when you’re hungry.
2. Eat what you want to, not what you think you should.
3. Eat consciously and enjoy every mouthful.
4. Stop when you are full.

A lifestyle based on conscious awareness of the body, food enjoyment, and free of “shoulds”?  That sounds LOA-friendly to me!
As is Martha Beck’s Joy Diet, which actually isn’t designed for weight loss, but for life happiness.  It seems to me, though, those two things often go hand in hand.
Here are Martha’s ten guidelines from the joy diet:

  • Nothing: Do nothing for fifteen minutes a day. Stop mindlessly chasing goals and figure out which goals are worth going after.
  • Truth: Create a moment of truth to help you unmask what you’re hiding—from others and from yourself.
  • Desire: Identify, articulate, and explore at least one of your heart’s desires—and learn how to let yourself want what you want.
  • Creativity: Learn six new ways to develop at least one new idea to help you obtain your heart’s desire.
  • Risk: Take one baby step toward reaching your goal. The only rule is it has to scare the pants off you.
  • Treats: Give yourself a treat for every risk you take and two treats just because you’re you. No exceptions. No excuses.
  • Play: Take a moment to remember your real life’s work and differentiate it from the games you play to achieve it. Then play wholeheartedly.
  • Laughter: Laugh at least thirty times a day. Props encouraged.
  • Connection: Use your Joy Diet skills to interact with someone who matters to you.
  • Feasting: Enjoy at least three square feasts a day, with or without food.

It’s easy to see how following these tips would lead one to embrace and enjoy life in a way that encourages ideal health.
The laughter diet seemed like it could be right up our alley, but most of what I found online focused on how many calories laughter burned.  Which kind of misses the point for conscious creators.  (I wouldn’t be surprised if laughter was an effective weight loss aid, but more from the standpoint of the alignment it leads us to rather than stomach muscles engaged.)
For a minute it seemed like the Sex Diet could be a possible contender as well (focusing on orgasmic bliss – how could that not be effective?), but results are mixed on that one.
What do you think – have you found any “diets” that operate in conjunction with conscious creation?
(And big thanks to everyone for sharing your suggestions in the comments!)

Activate: Healthy Body

Vibration Activation: Healthy BodyAs part of our vibration activation series, this post is designed to help align with ideal health in a thriving body (when that isn’t already the case).
Use it when you’d like help focusing off of unwanted symptoms and back on a comfortable, healthy body.
We know this works because whenever we find a way to feel what we want like it’s already here, it cues Universe to make it happen.
One read through should be good for a 17 second vibe activation, and that’s all it takes to make a shift.  All you have to do after that is honor inspiration (that is, do what feels good).
Enjoy the vibration of a healthy body:

You know, in the past there were times when it was easy for me to notice what wasn’t quite right with this fabulous body of mine, but the truth is it’s actually done a pretty good job for me.
There are tons of things going right here that I often take for granted. But when I look at what’s working well in comparison to the couple things that maybe could be better, I realize just how good I have it.
I know my body is my most reliable partner in life – it always tells me when I’m on track or off track, clues me in to how I’m feeling, and lets me know when I’m flowing resistance that would be good to let go of. It’ll never fail to speak to me, no matter how much I might have ignored it in the past. What a great partner!
I also understand that ideal health is always possible – all I have to do is chill out, listen to the messages, and honor guidance once I’m focused on what I want.
I’m not dependent on perfect health in order to feel good about myself and my life, which actually makes it even easier for me to thrive physically. (Funny how that works!)
From here on out I’m committed to getting even better at appreciating what my body does for me. Even the stuff that might be considered “symptoms” in some circles, I know is in complete service to me. Whether it’s my body’s way of bringing my focus back to the present moment, or a message it’s sending through, or maybe even just part of its journey back to health, I know I can trust my body to serve me well.
And SO many things are going right! That’s a long list when I think about it. That focus is exactly what allows more health to manifest, too. Pretty cool deal I’ve got going here.
As I revel in what’s going right in this physical form of mine, it’s even easier to enjoy life as is. I don’t have to have a perfect ‘everything’ in order to be happy with myself – because there’s plenty to be happy with already. And I’m not surprised when that perspective allows my body to get even healthier than it already was.
Life is good and my body is amazing!

You could finish up your activation by consciously giving thanks for the specific things you love most about your body – it thrives in that kind of spotlight! Also be aware of the story you’re telling about your health, since your body is always listening and obeying your every command.
Quick reminder how this works: we get our attention on what we want, and then honor whatever inspirations arrive. We don’t try to make it happen or figure it out. Rather, we let divine power coordinate success for us by simply staying focused on the desired result and then doing what feels right (i.e. honoring inner guidance). It’s a powerful formula to live by!
