The revelations continue from the book I finished yesterday by Nick Pfennigwerth. He stated that you will only manifest the amount of money that you are not overly excited about. And then I looked at what I was doing when using visualizations or vision boards. We are taught to cultivate the feeling of already having that we desire…. well I thought about how excited I would be, how incredible I would feel, how I would be jumping up and down and doing the money dance… because that is what financially free people do right? Uh.. wrong! People who are not struggling with money don’t do the money dance every time they get money because it’s normal. Of course they get money, of course they have excess… duh!
One: Accurate Visualization Techniques:
So let’s look at this from the perspective of weight. How are you doing your visualizing when you imagine your ideal body? Are you jumping up and down because you moved down a size? Are you shocked that you were able to lose weight while enjoying all the foods you love? Is it a miracle that you skipped a week of exercise and lost weight? Well if so, then it will never be your every day normalcy. I don’t get excited because I ate food and didn’t gain weight, I expect that to happen. I would be shocked if my weight ever went up not down. Can you see how important this is?
On a scale of 1-10, 1 being it would be a miracle if I lost weight and 10 being it would be a miracle if I didn’t… where would you rate yourself? How expectant are you of losing weight in a manner that doesn’t suck? If you really devoted your life to only focusing on making this present moment as amazing as possible (and dieting has no part in that) can you expect that to be enough to release the weight for good?
If you are low on the scale start with small steps. If believing that weight loss will happen simply from living an incredible life is too far fetched, start with the idea that if you are truly listening and honoring your body then you definitely won’t gain weight because it has no reason to communicate to you through excess weight. Weight is just a way to get you to wake up, pay attention and change something. So if you are already in the process of doing that, it doesn’t need to continue to climb.
Once you see those results you can move to, of course my body would release weight because I am creating an ideal life for myself. Excess weight doesn’t fit in with this new inner world I am creating so I don’t need to hold on to it anymore.
