I lost 10 pounds in one month. I know, I know — it’s hard to believe. Frankly, I was skeptical that losing 10 pounds in only one month was even possible. How could simply thinking about something make it happen? Pills, potions, fad diets and exhausting workouts were all things that I’d regarded as concrete and quantifiable. Therefore, somehow, some way, sticking with them would work.
They didn’t work, though. Every morning I’d get up, look in the mirror and see the same overweight person I was ashamed of, the same rolls of fat that I loathed and the same defeated expression. I had to face the facts: none of the weight loss methods I’d tried were working, so I decided to give this law of attraction thingy a whirl. Amazingly, the law of attraction for weight loss worked, and I shed 10 pounds in one month. Here’s what it is, how it helped me quickly shed weight and how it can help you too.
WHAT IS THE LAW OF ATTRACTION?
The LOA is a manifestation force that attracts into our lives whatever we focus upon. Positive attracts positive and negative attracts negative. You attract conditions, people and circumstances that correspond with your dominant thoughts and beliefs. The law of attraction is neutral. It doesn’t deem something good or bad. It doesn’t reward or punish. It simply matches your vibration and reflects it back to you.
My negative thoughts about my weight didn’t align with the positive result of losing it. When both aligned, the result was remarkable. These are my tips for the law of attraction for weight loss.
FOCUS ON WHAT YOU WANT
If you think, “I don’t want to think about my creepy ex-boyfriend anymore,” you’re placing your focus on not thinking about Mr. Wrong, and he remains front and center in your mind. That’s not conducive to releasing thoughts of a relationship that didn’t work and moving on.
Thinking “I hate my body” will keep your weight elevated because you’ve established the condition that you need to hate it. “I lose weight easily” or “My body is beautiful and slender” will be much more effective in aligning you with your goals.
Keep these thoughts in the present tense. Avoid some pie-in-the-sky version such as “I will lose weight easily,” or “My body will be beautiful and slender.” Your weight will follow your state of mind. You’re not stuck with your current weight. You can create something different. The key is believing that you already have it.
ALIGN YOUR THOUGHTS WITH AN EASIER EXPERIENCE
Do you believe that weight loss requires suffering and sacrifice? Then that’s what you’ll find in your world. Believe that weight loss will come easily and naturally. Believe that you already think of yourself as slim. Align yourself with people who have a healthy body image. The law of attraction will transform your thoughts into reality.
CREATE A VIBRATIONAL MATCH WITH THE BODY YOU WANT
I learned that I could move beyond feeling hopeless and helpless. I could be a conscious creator instead of a victim. I’m proof that these methods work. They’ll work for you too.
• Practice daily visualizations. Shakti Gawain, bestselling author of “Creative Visualization,” says, “Creative visualization is the technique of using your imagination to create what you want in your life.” Search the internet for “visualization.” You’ll find resources that can help you learn how to practice it. Visualization only takes a few minutes a day.
• When you eat, thank each and every morsel of food for making you slender.
• Use a vision board. You can create this collage online, or do it old school with cardboard or corkboard. Fill it with images of people who exemplify you at your ideal weight. You can also use images that express your joy at being that weight (for example, fireworks blazing or the sun bursting through clouds.) Look at it every day, and let it fill you with positive thoughts.
TREAT YOUR BODY LIKE A FRIEND
Your body is doing many amazing things right here, right now. It’s keeping your heart beating and your breath flowing. It’s letting you enjoy the gifts of five wonderful senses. It’s purifying you by removing wastes and toxins. Your body is incredible! Don’t scorn it. Talk to it lovingly. Applaud your weight right now, as though it’s already your ideal weight. Ready? Watch the LOA swing into action!
“Whether you think you can or whether you think you can’t,” said Henry Ford, “you’re right.” These wise words are the foundation of the law of attraction. I lost 10 pounds in a month because I told myself my body was gorgeous and slender on day one. Tell yourself the same thing after you read this article, and see what happens!
