There are two life transforming resources that I would like to take this opportunity to make you aware of. Each of these can help you immensely along your journey and taking advantage of both of them can supercharge your self-help efforts. They are amazing!
The first is The Secret by Rhonda Byrne. Many of you may have learned about this phenomenal book on Oprah’s show on February 8th. (It is also a CD or DVD and you can visit www.thesecret.tv for more information or to order), The secret is a compilation of writings from many great thinkers of our time, past and present, such as Plato, Einstein, Edison, Alexander Graham Bell, Jack Canfield and many others. What is remarkable is that all these wise people have been disseminating the same message – a message that can literally change your life.
Before I tell you more, however, I want to acquaint you with Abraham-Hicks, the second amazing, life- transforming resource I mentioned above. Abraham is a group, not a single entity, of spirit guides who speak to us through a woman named Esther Hicks. (www.abraham-hicks.com ). Now for some, this may be a stretch but, if you are open to the idea of spiritual guidance, as I am, this will propel you along your path. What is so wonderful to me is that the messages of Abraham also match the messages of the great thinker’s quoted in Ms. Byrnes book.
The message, or secret, is that in our universe like attracts like. You may know this as The Law of Attraction. What we think about is what we attract. So, if we are thinking “I am fat and I need to lose weight” the universe hears that and keeps us in a state of feeling fat and needing to lose weight (which we have not seemed to be able to lose in the past, despite all our most sincere efforts). When we give thought to something, we invite it into our life. So, could weight loss be really as simple as changing our thought patterns? Yes, I believe it can and in fact I believe it is impossible without shifting our thought to a positive vibration whenever possible.
So, how can you use this wonderful information to your best advantage? You can begin by ceasing to beat yourself up. This never helps, as I emphasize so strongly in The Taming of the Chew. Instead of putting yourself down or punishing your “bad” overeating behavior, focus on the positive things about your body. Think about how fortunate you are that your body can serve you in the marvelous ways that it does. Appreciate yourself! Think of joyful things and have more fun. Any positive, happy thoughts will raise your vibration and enable you to transform not just your physical body but your life.
This is powerful and magical and just about the most important news you can hear at this time. Of course there is much to know about the Universal Law of Attraction that can help you – much, much more than I could possibly share in this brief newsletter. So, please do visit the websites above and read and listen for yourself. I think you will be most pleasantly surprised. Invite more joy, balance and peace into your life. You deserve this!
