Using Law of Attraction to Rid Cellulite?

use law of attraction to get rid of celluliteThat’s what someone asked me today. How to use law of attraction to get rid of cellulite.

Forget world peace and planetary health, let’s use our creative power where it really counts: on those thighs!

I get a lot of emailed questions, but I liked this one in particular.

Partly because I’ve been running into a similar obstacle with something I’ve been trying to get rid of lately.

Which is the recurring thought: “What’s wrong with people?!”

I don’t remember where it started – probably a conversation with someone in animal rescue. (I get tripped up on that subject sometimes.)

And now it’s popping up in all sorts of conversations.

  • Senator Weiner tweets inappropriate photos, or
  • Arnold cheats on Maria, or
  • my brother tells me about his lawn mower appropriated by his ex-wife, or
  • Bachelorette Ashley falls for the jerk

… and there’s that thought again.

Which isn’t a surprise, since that’s how law of attraction works. I held the thought with strong emotion at some point, revisited it a time or two, and now Universe has it on my playlist“What’s wrong with people?” 

(not my proudest manifestation)

I don’t like it and I don’t want any more of it.

Kind of like how many of us feel about cellulite, right?

It’s easy to see where I’m going wrong with my “what’s wrong with people” mantra. Whether we’re battling cellulite or cancer or the IRS or exes with illegally obtained lawn mowers – it’s all the same.

When I resist it, it persists.

I create more cellulite (or other things to dislike about my body) when I loathe it. And when I push against a thought I don’t want, it replicates like rabbits in my mind.

So does that mean I should embrace my love for all that is wrong with people? Well, that would be an improvement to what I’ve been doing – which is trying not to think it.

It’s finally gotten to the point where I burst out laughing when I say it now. (Which is also a step up the vibrational scale – laughter!)

Because “trying” is no match against law of attraction.

If you want something to be gone, whether it’s cellulite or stupid people – here’s what works better:

  • make some peace with it
  • and then focus on the opposite (or at least something alternative)

I’m practicing this by not beating myself up when I hear myself repeating my “What’s wrong with people” mantra, and then consciously noticing what’s right with folks.

And there is SO much evidence of that!

If it’s cellulite you want law of attraction to take away – start by stop making it such a problem.

Soften your thinking about it; let it be a smaller deal.

And then notice what’s RIGHT. With your body, your life, the world, whatever – get your attention on what’s easier to appreciate.

That’s the kind of vibration Universe can deliver you something good with.

Because anytime we do battle with something – whether it’s cellulite or thoughts or drugs or cancer or terrorists or true loves – we lose. And we deliberate creators know too much to play it that way.

    Thank you for the informative article and is very valuable.

  • Jussi says:

    Thank you for your article, it gave me a good mood. I also showed it to my wife who pretends that she’s got cellulite – hope she got the idea!

  • Kristine says:

    Hi Jeannette,
    I’m new to your site & just loving it – so much delicious exploring to do.
    Another layer to what’s been said is to pivot from “What’s Wrong With People” to “All this Contrast is OK, in fact all this Contrast is FABULOUS – It’s helping me zero in on what I DO want.”

  • Hi Jeannette,
    Thanks for the article. I wondered if I was the only one feeling that way. I have given up the news because it only promotes fear and distress. I have been meditating more and have decided that there are only two emotions, fear and love. You have to be in love ( to manifest, or to adjust your health or body. I was wanting a way to improve my health and to lose weight despite a long commute each day, and I was inspired to a new way of eating that is melting away the extra fat. ( I thought these might be of interest to you and your readers.

  • Yay for embracing the intention for a positive focus, Suzip! I’ll join you in that one.

  • suzip says:

    Thanks for the article, it’s just what I needed today and brought a smile to my face. You are so right. I was feeling a bit down today it’s been raining and now the sun is shinning so thanks and have a good day. I will start to focus on something good for the rest of the day.

  • Aw, compassion for belly fat! Howie, I’m impressed.
    First thrilled to see you posting here, second thrilled with what you shared.
    Thank you!
    And I might quote you on facebook, I liked that last line of yours so much! 🙂

  • Loathing my body (or parts thereof) is a perfect vicious circle: “I feel bad when I look at you. I get depressed when I feel bad. I grab guilty pleasures foods and mope around when I’m depressed.”
    The tricky part, of course, is not trying to push away the unhelpful thoughts that are trying to push away the things I don’t want.
    I’ve found that even in the infinite loop of self-judgment, it only takes a single atom of compassion to bring the whole thing to a halt: “Oh, look, a part of me that’s really scared of this belly fat. Gosh, it must be painful to be so confused.”
    Thanks for bringing some reality to LOA, and vice versa!

  • Marita, you have the coolest name I’ve run across in a long time.
    I’m probably not saying it right, but even my version is beautiful! lol
    And yes, cent or a million – the process, the pattern is the same. Thanks for posting, my friend!

  • marita Mitropoulou says:

    I really enjoyed your article, Jeanette! I totally agree with you. Whether is about a cent or a million, world peace or cellulite the pattern of our thoughts should be the same!
    I always enjoy reading your thoughts!

  • Yes, horrible image. lol Replacing that one now!! Which is easy to do – I made peace with cellulite after my weight started creeping up. Kinda put things in perspective. lol
    So I’m thinking of a good “I am” for appreciating all sorts of people and their behaviors. I AM getting a kick out of how everyone chooses to do life.
    Could be a winner.
    Thanks for chiming in, Laura! 🙂

  • Laura says:

    This is great…I can relate to this on a number of levels. First, I find myself “guilty” of the same thing Jeannette (the “What’s wrong with people” – not the cellulite, although I’ll get to that in a minute – lol). Or I might say something else that has the same effect and once I realize I’ve done it again, I too, laugh. To me, what this does is increase my awareness of it and also reinforce that that is not really the energy I chose to be flowing. Do I really want to walk around “looking” for what’s wrong with people? OMG…NO!
    Like Janette and Kim mentioned, I use it as an opportunity to pivot immediately and feel compassion for them. There must have been some motivation (you can never know what it is like to BE someone else) and while it doesn’t excuse the behavior, it can help to explain it. It also makes me that much more grateful that I am who I am and do not see things that way (or behave that way, you get the point).
    I think in this case, you thought of “what is wrong with people” is a little different energetically than “how do I get rid of this damn cellulite”. In terms of resistance, yes, focusing on the cellulite will most likely keep it stuck there like cement (ew..what a horrible image, huh?). This is the perfect opportunity for an “I AM” statement. I am experiencing beautifully toned, smooth thighs. I swear this stuff works, I use “I am dropping weight every time I walk”. Also, when I do see the cellulite, I notice it, say “okay, I see you” and then focus on some other area (s) that I am happy with. Since it is a physical thing it is easy to visualize the way we’d like it to be.
    With recurring thoughts, you will probably never get rid of that reaction but but you might notice what it is saying to you: This (person/behavior) is so not in my pie and is not aligned with who I am. It can serve as an opportunity to appreciate who you are and how you chose to live your life.
    Not sure if this making sense….didn’t sleep much and am a bit tired, but got inspired to respond. Love the topic, J!

  • Glad it hit the spot, Gemstone. Sounds like we’re in good company.
    Elizabeth, that sounds like a plan for a nice month! “Embrace.” Whew. Like high powered allowing!
    You go, girl!

  • Elizabeth says:

    Thanks, Jeannette! I needed this reminder. I think my theme for the month is going to be Embrace. I think I could use a dose of focusing on the things I love and want to embrace in a few areas of life.

  • Gemstone says:

    Another timely post with great reminders of a better way to think about loathsome subjects. I’ve been so irritated this past week, and this post really made me stop and think how I can make things better for myself.
    Happy 4th everyone!

  • Nikky, I already like the kind of parent you are striving to be! Way to walk the talk, too.
    That’s something special to behold. 🙂

  • Nikky says:

    Thank you Jeannette ,
    I have learnt and am still learning so much from you and this community.
    Just recently I became aware and had a discussion about the same with my hubby….
    The premise being that we want to raise our kid using vibration and energy management as our tools yet many times when the rest of the world ( well meaning grandmums, friends etc) intervene to give their bit on how it should be done and if that is against what we believe is the LOA way…. we ( My husband and I ) push really hard against it. Sometimes even get upset ( resist) at these very well meaning people….. trying to correct them.
    What a stupid thing to do? I realised all we needed to do was not resist, not push , not even be aware and be tuned in to stuff that doesnt resonate with us.
    And that really made a difference. And this was last week and today I read this post……Thanks universe for reiterating the same message.
    love nikky

  • Really nice twist, Zannie! That feels like a very LOA friendly improved version.
    Thank you for it!

  • Oooh, Kim, loving this: “Sometimes an answer can dissolve the question and release judgement.”
    Hmm. Thank you for that! I’ll be playing with it!

  • Zannie Rose says:

    I came across a lovely queation that may well contribute to this discussion. Instead of asking ‘whats wrong with this ‘(cellulite/person in the news/me) we can ask ”whats right about this that I’m not getting”
    love this topic

  • Kim Falconer says:

    Jeannette, thank you for this great topic.
    It’s simple when we break it down: Get okay with the body in this red hot moment. Find the feeling we WANT to experience (what doe smart people or no cellulite represent to us?) and feel that way right now!
    Janette, you make a great point. IF we are going to ask the question, then by all means, use the answer as a pivot to compassion and release. ‘What’s wrong with people?’ Answers might be: He was never loved. Someone did that to her as a child. He has forgotten who he is. Her grass is ridiculously long.
    Sometimes and answer can dissolve the question and release judgement.
    Thank you again, everyone, for your comments!
    🙂 Kim

  • Janette says:

    Great post!
    I can also hear a subtext behind the “what’s WRONG with people?” which is “what’s wrong with ME?”
    The things we notice in others is what we have in ourselves. I used to think that only applied to the stuff that annoyed us, but you taught me Jeannette that it also applies to the things we admire! But right now, we’re only talking about the annoying.
    So…. if I’m holding and trying to push away the thought “what’s wrong with people?”…. does that mean I’m also denying a thought “what’s wrong with me?”
    Once we allow that thought “what’s wrong with me?” we get to provide an answer: NOTHING. But we can’t answer the question while we’re pushing it away.
    We live in an inclusive universe, where (it seems to me) the only way to expand into peace and joy is to embrace ALL of it, even the thought we don’t want to think. Once we allow or even embrace that thought, then it has the chance to dissipate and dissolve into light and love.
    D’you think? 🙂

  • Janette, have you watched the Seven Essene Mirrors video that Nancy Barry-Jansson posted in the GVU forums? (It’s on YouTube if you search that with Gregg Braden.)
    Anyway, I haven’t finished it all yet, but it seemed to offer another take on this sort of thing. (What we see in others is a reflection of ourselves.)
    But I can’t say that for sure since I’m not done and was distracted while listening. 🙂

  • Nancy, I’m replying after hearing the jury’s verdict, and hearing a collective cry of “what’s wrong with that JURY?”
    Yeah, great opportunity to find a better feeling thought!
    Thanks for reading, Nancy, and especially for posting. 🙂

  • Nancy says:

    I have been entertaining increasingly vehement reactions to the coverage of the Casey Anthony trial. From a disinterest to resistance to the media coverage to wanting to shoot the TV this morning, I decided I needed to work on my thoughts about this. Thank you for such a clear post. Now I know that what I thought was disinterest was really disdain as in, WHAT is WRONG with this woman!

  • Ming says:

    haha.. enjoyed your post! My neighbor left in my mailbox a CD of Abraham Hicks talking in LA. I just finished it and they are saying the same thing .. just about any topic you want you can use LOA.. it was the one where they use the “F” word to the rapper.
    Love that – If you want something to be gone, whether it’s cellulite or stupid people – here’s what works better:
    •make some peace with it
    •and then focus on the opposite (or at least something alternative)
    Thanks Jeanette for the reminder, happy 4th!

  • It’s not one I’m particularly proud of, Valerie, but this stuff seems so much easier to grasp when we’re talking about it terms of real life, rather than abstract principles and concepts.
    So I’m happy to offer my own self up as an example whenever it works. lol
    Thanks for reading and for commenting, my friend!

  • Valerie says:

    Jeannette, thank you as always, for your humor and your truth!

  • Ooh, that’s one of my favorite workshop excerpts lately!
    Thanks for reading and for posting, Ming.
    For those who are really here to figure out how to get rid of cellulite, I’ll add what I wrote back to the person who asked the question:
    Resistance to cellulite is the first order of business to change.
    What we resist persists, so the more we don’t want it, the more we create it.
    How would/will you feel when you have nice smooth gorgeous skin?
    However you’ll feel THEN, that’s the best “diet” to go on now. Make that feeling your #1 activated vibration and you’ll be in good shape.
