How many times have you thought, “If I just join a gym I will lose weight?” How many times have you joined a gym only to stop going after a few months, or maybe you do go and do the same sad workout, day after day, not seeing any significant results in the mirror?
It isn’t that exercise is bad. Movement that feels good, is so amazing for your body. An active lifestyle is even better than just a trip to the gym every other day. Building movement into your day helps your body burn those calories efficiently all day long.
But if you think that exercise alone will help you lose weight permanently, you will be disappointed. Exercise is but one ingredient in the weight loss formula. Exercise helps you feel stronger, more confident, burns calories, reduces stress hormones and helps your mind relax.
But weight issues are more complex than just throwing on walking shoes and going for a run. Weight issues have physical, mental, emotional and spiritual causes, and usually it is a combination of all of them. And just exercising is like putting a band-aid on a gunshot wound. It might help stop the bleeding, but you still have a deeper wound to heal.
And as we are each unique and divine, so is the root cause of our weight issues. You can have a physical body imbalance that triggers weight gain; even some medicines can cause your body to retain extra weight, but I find that there is always an emotional upset or trauma (real or perceived) that is the actual root cause from where the physical manifestations begin to blossom.
I often find that if you dig and dig some more, you will find that the root cause of weight issues (and quite frankly all health issues) is lack of love. Love of body. Love of self. Sounds kinda cheesy, but it is true.
Lack of love can look like a million different things; not feeling worthy, depression, low self esteem, sabotaging yourself, addictions (all of them), people pleasing, door mat, etc.
So you can go the gym like a boss, and cut all those carbs and you will see your body shrink most likely, as long as you are doing all those things. What happens when you stop cutting carbs though? You know what happens; you begin to put the weight right back on. This is because you have not gotten to the root of your particular weight issue, and the weight just keeps coming back not unlike a weed.
When we don’t truly and completely love our bodies, we can find ourselves constantly berating ourselves, quietly in the comfort of our own minds. If you walk by a mirror and think, “OMG, I am so fat...” how do you think your body will respond to that? Is this love and care? Yet we do this to our bodies all...the...time. It is not helpful.
And if you think about it like this, everything is energy. Everything has a vibration. This isn’t New Age stuff either; this is scientific fact. Everything has a frequency. Thoughts. Emotions. Objects. And if you are in a constant state of thinking bad thoughts about your stomach, your thighs, your butt, arms, chin, scars, stretch marks, cellulite, etc you are eating spoonful after spoonful of lower vibrational energy.
Love, however, is high vibe frequency; the highest. What if you thought loving, kind thoughts about your body, yourself, your life? How do you think that would feel? Which would you rather eat spoonfuls of? Love or hate? I know which one I prefer.
Let’s go back to the self loathing for a minute though. If you are thinking negatively about your body all throughout your day, how do you think it will affect you? Your mood? Do you think it would affect your food choices? The way you dress or carry yourself? Perhaps you would sit around more because, why bother? Or maybe it would get you fired up to make a resolution full of willpower and action (for a few weeks).
Do you see where weight issues are not as simple as go to the gym and eat more vegetables? I hope I have enlightened you on this. You gotta heal the root cause, and that root cause is ultimately healing your lack of love of your body.
When you can come into alignment with your body and body love, magic happens. The choices you begin to make are more effortless, flowing, feel really freaking good. You walk by a mirror and smile more. You begin to appreciate all that your body has done and does for you every moment of every day. You feel more confident in your skin.
Yes there is deep healing that needs to happen, but you see this as self love vs. sheer will of force.
I have created a group program that can help you lose weight, with way more ease and love! It is called in fact, Body Love, the energetic approach to losing weight.
Body Love will help you embody the love that you are. Body Love will help you acknowledge, heal and release emotional traumas from this lifetime and before (yes, we can carry these traumas over from other times and places). Limiting beliefs will be pulled and released (1000’s of them). Your physical body will be healed, the systems, organs, cells and your DNA will be cleansed and supercharged, so that your physical body can begin running more efficiently.
Body Love is a 3 month deep dive investment in your body transformation. The weekly healing and support you will receive will not only keep you motivated, but also super focused on your particular goal of weight loss. This is not a get skinny quick program. This is a commitment you make to yourself to heal from the inside out. Your outer self will begin to reflect that deep inner love you are cultivating within.
Are you ready to love your body deeper than you ever thought possible as you begin to lose the weight you so desperately want to lose?
