Your imagination is your greatest tool for weight loss. Weight loss happens naturally when you use the power of your imagination to shape your beliefs and your body. What you imagine can be made real. If you can imagine it, you can be it!
To lose weight with the power of your mind, you need to have a clear vision of what you want to look like. Take the time to develop a clear image of what you will look like at your ideal weight. This weight is what is appropriate for your height, frame and age, not what society deems "acceptable."
Now that you have an image of yourself at your ideal weight, you will want to describe this new you in full detail on a piece of paper. This is the manifesto for your new self! Write out your physical description as completely and clearly as you can. Describe how your body looks, its specific parts, and how it feels. Write this description completely in the present as if it exists now. If you currently weigh 150 lbs. and you want to be 120 lbs., write "I weigh 120 pounds."
Now describe your ideal self. This is the vision of you operating at the highest expression of your being. This is the self that you have always longed to be. See yourself living the life you were born to live!
Describe your new self in as much detail as possible. Describe your personality, your talents, and your skills. How would you look and act if you fully owned your power and potential? How would you look and act as a fully expressed, powerful being - radiant, confident, abundant, and successful - with a full, happy and balanced life?
What kind of activities would you enjoy? What kind of friends would you have? What kind of career would you have? What kind of car would you drive? Where would you live?
Imagine a life that isn’t hampered by a weight problem, fears, or limitation of any kind. Let go and dream. This life is only limited by the power of your imagination. Let yourself soar above your mundane life to embrace a life of infinite possibility. See yourself living this life! Know in your heart that this life is possible for you.
This is your personal manifesto. This is the vision for your new life! Read this description every day to imprint this new reality into your subconscious.
After reading your manifesto, repeat to yourself, "I align myself with the creative vibration of the universe to make my vision a reality!"
Once you have a very clear vision of yourself at your ideal weight, you will want to make a vision board of the new self you want to create. This is the time to let really let your imagination go wild. Let yourself dream up a new self and new life for yourself!
A vision board is a collage and visual manifestation of something you want to manifest in your life. It is a potent reminder that what you can imagine, you can be. It sets the stage and your intention for creating a new life for yourself. Remember, life happens from the inside out, not the other way around. Use the power of your imagination to create the life you really want.
Cut out pictures from magazines that depict the life you want for yourself. Paste and glue these pictures on a large piece of paper or poster board. Cut out pictures of clothes, jewelry, hairstyles you will wear at your ideal weight, pictures of people near your perfect weight, (better yet, add a picture of yourself at your ideal weight), pictures of people enjoying the lifestyle you want for yourself, the activities that you would like to do once you reach your ideal weight, pictures that represent the work that you would like to do, vacations you’d like to take, etc. Don’t hold back. Let yourself go for it! Envision a new life for yourself!
Put this vision board somewhere that you can look at it every day. Looking at this every day will imprint your subconscious mind that this is what you want to create for yourself. Your subconscious will see this as a command and will work to bring this vision into reality. If you can imagine it, you can be it!
