Permanent weight loss is the work of opening your heart to all that is good in you and the world. It means living a life of gratitude. Gratitude puts you in the flow of life! Nothing shifts your energy as quickly as gratitude. Love is the highest vibration there is. When you are grateful you are letting love flow through you and toward you. You are in a heightened state of receptivity.
Emotional overeaters tend to be negatively focused. They focus on what is missing or what is wrong with their life. Negativity leads to feelings of overwhelm, despair, failure, and powerlessness. These feelings lead right to the refrigerator!
Negative thinking is a bad habit and can be shifted with a little practice. The use of affirmations and gratitude can quickly shift negative thoughts into powerfully creative ones. When you feel better, you will eat better!
Do you regularly count your blessings? Do you focus on what is working well in your life? Or, do you choose to focus on what is missing? Do you say thank-you often? Do you choose to focus on what is good in others? Or, are you a fault finder, always looking for other people's flaws? Do you give others frequent compliments and words of praise?
The most powerful prayer in the world is a simple thank-you. When you are grateful, you are radiating love and good will towards the whole world. You are able to spread your love out into the world and you will find it coming back to you in a myriad of ways. I call this spreading a little sunshine. Gratitude is the sunshine of an open heart.
Today I will give thanks for all the good in my life. I choose to notice the beauty and goodness in others. I will stop and smell the roses. There is so much beauty in the world and I am grateful to be a part of it. I choose to spread the sunshine and appreciate all that is well in my world.
Every morning upon awakening I will open my eyes and say thank -you!
I am so grateful for all that I have been given. Even though there are problems in my life, there is still plenty of good. Today, I choose to notice the good!
