Wasn’t Valerie Bertinelli just so touching in that Jenny Craig commercial where she said she wouldn’t have to worry about losing weight because she’d already done it, as she waved her fingers in front of her face to cover up her tears?
That made me sad, that commercial. “Why?” you might want to know. Well, not to pick on anyone who’s lost weight this way, because this type of accomplishment is phenomenal, but the weight loss that was accomplished was based entirely on the manipulation of effect. Eating less, plus a belief that if one eats less, one would lose weight allowed ha manifestation of weight loss. But “Cause” was not used in this process. Only effect was manipulated.
If you know anything about the Law of Cause and Effect, you know this: Cause is YOU, THINKING. Effect is the manifestation that results from YOU, THINKING. Your body is one of those effects. It’s the Report Card that tells you what you’ve been thinking about your Self.
When you resort to the same old weight loss techniques - pay someone your money so you can eat less and manipulate effect into weight loss - it does not have permanent results unless you continue to manipulate the effect, because once you stop, you KNOW you regain the weight. Why is this? Because you think that food (the effect) has the same properties as Cause (your thinking) does. It does NOT. Oh, you use your thinking in the old mind-model of a weight loss plan, but you never change your mind completely. You continue to think that food has the ability to cause you to gain or lose weight, and what results is this:
You become (with your complete permission) the slave of an inanimate effect when the truth is that you are Cause Itself, sitting there in neutral, not knowing how to kick your Sweet Self into Gear!
How sad is that? You have the power, the strength, the courage, the persistence, the honesty and the chutzpah to get this job done mentally, but you:
1) Never even knew that such a thing existed or
2) Haven’t made it your #1 focus and did the work to get the job done for once and for all using mental means alone.
Now I know that people out there who know me personally know that I fall into the #2 category. I have lots of excuses for this as you know. I detest my excuses. I think that developing a business that will allow lots of women like me to know about these truths, and then as I work the business helping them, I will HAVE that focus that I so make less-than-a-priority and will enjoy the results we all want.
I also know that talking about Cause and Effect as deeply as I do is confusing to some of you. Not to worry! The World of Within is going to have a Community where you can ask tons of questions and get great answers so that you CAN gain the necessary understanding. There are fourteen tele-classes designed to help you understand how this works, too.
2008 will be here tomorrow. Lots of activity happened in December that is bringing my book My Cats Have Seen Me Naked: How I Achieved Self-Acceptance and Self-Love While Obese all that much closer to being sent off to the publisher. New talent has been found to complete the website The World of Within. Improvements to this blog Chubsey Ubsey are under development.
So, we all have a lot to look forward to in 2008. I want all of you to be sure you are signed up for my ezine In-Sights. You’ll love all the tips and the meaty article you’ll get each month. Please be with us from our maiden voyage.
Blessings! Peace! Love and Joy!
