Today, I want you to play “What If?” with me. It’ll be a way to gain a different perspective of your body. Ready?
What if, when you were born, you only had a tiny, little speck of a concept about your life and then your body, so your body looked just like your concept - tiny?
What if, as you matured, your sense of yourself involved input from your parents “My, you’re becoming such a Big Girl” so your body again assimilated your new sense and looked bigger?
What if grandma patted you on the head and said “Oh honey, you have such a good appetite” and you thought it was making your body too big, so that is what your body reflected back at you?
What if the ads on the TV began to talk about fattening foods, and your school teachers taught you that food had some effect on your body, and your Dad stood in front of the fridge so you couldn’t get in because he thought your body was too big, and then your body reflected all this out into a much bigger body?
What if you didn’t know your thoughts, ideas and sense of self was automatically reflected forth onto your body so you could see what you are thinking?
What if one sense you entertained said “I cannot control this weight gaining” so your body dutifully reflected it back for you to see?
What if this went on for just years and years so that you completely lost track of when and how it began; you only knew it was a giant, emotional pain?
What if you heard the medical community saying you were going to get high blood pressure and/or diabetes because you were a large woman, and you believed it, so your dutiful body (scratching it’s head and thinking “Are you really sure about this one?”) reflected back to you obesity and high blood pressure?
What if everything you’ve been told is wrong? What if your body is only mental phenomena - a spiritual picture of what is going on inside your mind?
What if you changed your mind, changed your sense, and began to think something better about yourself and your body reflected that back to you?
What if you persevered with the new thinking until you began to see changes, and what if you persevered until all the changes were 100% complete?
All of this is possible. You’ve been doing it all your life. You now need to set some filters for what you will permit in and believe — and thus, reflect — and you can, without diet and exercise, change the way your body looks. Please begin. An untested idea is such a waste.
