21 May Letting go for good
Posted at 10:21h in Uncategorized
Have you ever lost something?
Maybe your car keys? Do you remember that feeling of dread, annoyance, panic and then the ensuing madness in trying to find it?
You probably started turning out drawers, emptying handbags, pulling up seat cushions in a desperate attempt to find what you’d lost.
And when you found it, everything settled back down to normal. The status quo restored.
When you lose something you look for it. You keep looking for it. Until you find it.
So how do you think your mind and body react to losing weight?
You do the diet, you do the excercise and you lose the weight.
Then you go on a mad binge to find it again… and usually you do.
How many people do you know who set out to lose weight and didn’t find it again?
I know people who’ve reached their ideal size through enjoyable changes in lifestyle whereby they let go of the weight as a side effect, but I don’t personally know ANYONE who set out to lose weight and didn’t find it again.
Ideal size is such a contentious subject for so many of us, I know I’ve been on the ‘weight loss’ journey myself many times and true to form, every time I lost the weight I found it again.
What I’ve realised on my journey to wholeness is that letting of excess weight is about more than diet and excercise.
It’s about confronting what the excess weight represents to you.
It’s about understanding the deep rooted beliefs
– my whole family are big therefore…
– I have a slow metabolism
– I’m not athletic
– losing weight is hard
It’s about facing the trauma and consequent layers of protection that have covered you and the side-effect of this healing is reaching your ideal size. It’s about self-love and knowing that your size doesn’t determine who you are. It’s about learning to treat your body like the temple it is, nurturing it and loving it with whole, healing food and soulful, uplifting excercise.
There isn’t a pill and it doesn’t come with a 6 week money back guarantee. Letting go of excess weight and attaining your ideal size is about healing, if you’re ready to heal you can achieve anything.
Letting go isn’t a quick fix and it isn’t always fun but when the end goal isn’t size but healing it is effortless, meaningful and worthwhile.
If you are compelled to embark on your healing journey you can book a session of mindfulness coaching during which we will utilise NLP, Timeline practice, hypnotherapy, yoga, meditation and a variety of modalities to set you back on your path to wholeness.
What are you ready to let go of?
In grace and gratitude
