How will a spiritual cleansing help you lose weight?
I am concluding the spring cleaning series. We explored the mind and body. Now for a moment, let us explore the soul. Weight gain and emotional eating are often signs of a imbalance. When we are out of balance the body becomes distressed. My weight loss journey has taught me to look deep within. I have had to address a number of uncomfortable beliefs. What I learned from my work is that most of our unhappiness, and stress is rooted in negativity. When you release the negativity in life, you become free to take care of you!
Why am I am referring to this as soul cleaning? I believe that all healing is a spiritual process. Releasing negativity is not done through will power. It requires accepting that you are not in control of people or their behavior. This insight allows you the wisdom to not try to control others, no matter how much you love them. In time you will appreciate the differences and trust that there is a grand plan. We cannot possibly know why things happen the way they do. I will ask you to trust that there is a grand plan, even when you can’t see it.
I can write a book just on this topic. For now, trust me when I tell you that all of my clients that have lost weight and kept it off have had to do some soul searching. It is healthy for your mind and body. In my humble opinion, forgiveness is the fastest way to cleanse the soul. It is not easy, but will release the root cause of what is negative in your life.
Your assignment is to make a decision to forgive. It is not for them, it is for you to release the negativity and allow the positive to replace it.
