The Spiritual Side of Weight Loss: Yes, Thoughts Affect Weight Loss

The Spiritual Side of Weight Loss: Yes, Thoughts Affect Weight Loss

It has been theorized that we have over 180,000 thoughts per day. That’s a lot of thinkin’. Some of those thoughts are fleeting, in one lobe and out the other. But what happens to those thoughts that we just can’t let go of? What happens to those ideas that we dwell and stew on?  Our thoughts and ideas, both good and bad, can’t stay cooped up in that brain forever. What happens to the ideas that we just can’t let go of our refuse to address?

Well, there’s an old saying that goes, “We hold our issues in our tissues” and spiritually speaking, it’s totally true.  Thoughts are energy and energy tends to be the most useful and productive when it’s allowed to flow freely. As a matter of fact, it’s the nature of energy to want to move, ebb and flow. So when we keep our thoughts cooped up within us they tend to force their way out one way or another. And more often than not they’ll force their way out in  the form of physical or emotional issues.

We, as spiritual mentors, can take a look at the thought-energy root of a physical/emotional problem and address it from that perspective, the perspective of stagnant energy. Now, that doesn’t mean ‘miracle cure’ but it can mean enlightenment as to the root of the issue which can lead a person to more productive physical healing modalities or productive changes in personal thought-behavior.

Now springtime tends to be when people focus on developing their ‘beach bodies’. First of all, let me say, that you are perfect just the way you are, but if you are looking to make some changes in your weight (either gain or lose) it’s imperative that you begin with changing the way you think.

Most people who have struggled with weight are well familiar with basic do’s and don’ts, but almost everyone who has tried and failed to achieve a more healthy weight has failed to realize that what we think and how we think it affects our body’s ability to lose weight AND our own behavior.

The first step for anyone who has tried to change their weight and failed is not changing nutrition or exercise programs, it’s changing your thoughts. Find a helper who can dig deeply into your history of thought and behaviors. Find a helper who can see beyond standard do’s and don’ts and peer directly into the spiritual soul of why these thoughts have kept you from reaching your goal. It’s not as hard as it seems and when that lightbulb flips on, you’ll see your energy change and your efforts will finally begin to yield results.

Thoughts have power, power to change the body, in good ways and bad ways. So, why spend another day letting old, stagnant, useless, thoughts keep you from your personal health goals?
