- Promises, promises, promises. They're everywhere right now. "Get Your Beach Body!" "Lose 7 pounds in 7 days." "Get Back into that Sexy dress." Pick up any magazine at the grocery store checkout and you'll be bombarded with headlines just like these assuring that THIS is the best way to get everything you want and more! But something odd is going on here.
Try this. Go online and look at the headlines of your favorite magazine from the previous 2 or 3 months. What will you find? Typically the same types of headlines, and sometimes the exact same promise with a slightly different twist! If there always selling the same bag of goods to the same readers, doesn't it seem like they're missing something?
Yes, they are. Each of these headlines is trying to portray an image of external value: Looks, Sex appeal, Societal expectations, etc. What you're really after though is a feeling....of a vibrant, energetic, lean, peaceful body that supports you and makes you feel amazing. The problem is that all a quick fix can do is provide these feelings in a fleeting, short term way. Ditch this food and you'll feel good today, but tomorrow you'll go back to feeling depressed, disconnected, and drug down because yet another diet didn't work and another promise went unfulfilled.
Instead, create the feeling first. Feel Light in the body and then let your body guide you towards the foods, exercises, and ideas that will create lightness (both dropping pounds and feeling great) in the body. Will the pounds go away? Yep. Will you feel amazing? You bet. Will you find a tool that you can always use to support long term change? Absolutely. And this one is the kicker. The more we rely on outside factors to make us feel a certain way, the more reliant we are on those outside things being present. Take them away, like a special pill, and we're screwed. But if you create the feeling, actually sense the body being delightfully full of light, you take control of this pattern and instead the outside factors are brought in by your personal choice to support your feeling! You feel light, and create lightness, every moment of every day.
Then the only headline you'll need is: Wow! I feel Good!
