The simple explanation of the law of attraction is that you attract the situations, ideas and positive circumstances in response to the predominant thoughts and desires you hold in your mind. Recently, this phenomenon was explained from a scientific point of view. Your ability to apply the law of attraction to maintain real weight loss results is a fact! In this article I'll help you to understand the key principles of this law and show you how to correctly use it for your weight loss purposes.
The Power of Your Subconscious and Infinite Intelligence
The human brain acts like an outcome-achievement center. Eben Pagan calls our mind "the Google for Goals". Without a doubt, it's one of the most powerful computers on this planet - and we all have free access to it. Our mind consists or two parts: the conscious and the unconscious. The subconscious mind is a neutral and obedient servant of the conscious mind. It acts upon our strong desires and dominant thoughts and beliefs, waiting to implement those commands 24/7. The key distinction here is that the conscious part of our mind may give both positive as well as negative instructions. The sad reality of the situation is that every day our thoughts are more likely to be negative than positive. This stream of unconstructive message about ourselves creates the program for our subconscious mind, thus manifesting our outer world in accordance with that "software". This can either be good or bad. The way to use this innate mechanism to our benefit is to change the programming of your subconscious mind from negative to positive. The only difficulty is that it can not be done immediately. The negative mental programs creating the circumstances of your life that were formed in the brain during several years cannot be changed easily.
The Most Effective Tool to Change Negative Programming
By now, you're most likely convinced of the fact that our negative beliefs and attitude towards weight loss or any other area can be altered by us. This means we can take control of the results we experience. If you are dieting and exercising, but still not getting big changes in weight reduction, if you see yourself everyday in the mirror and feel frustrated, if you are not confident and not secure, this is how you can change that and attract a fit body by with your thoughts:
Visualize! The visualization is a process of repeated visualization of the fit, healthy, and confident You you're aspiring to become. Visualize how you would look when reach your weight loss goals. Think about every detail of your new self...the feeling of confidence and satisfaction that you'll experience. Imagine everything in bright, vivid, and intense colors. Add music to the picture. To supercharge the results of visualization, do the following: make this picture still and mentally throw it up in the air and start making it smaller and smaller until it becomes the size of a small photograph. Then, make it explode into million copies and make it rain...into your future, the present, and past. Don't worry about getting it "right" - your subconscious will help you. Remember, "Thoughts are things", so condition the positive ones and they will help you in your weight loss.
The Magic Behind Written Goals
There is something almost magical about putting what you want onto paper. When you write down what you want in paper every day or at least every other way day, your vision of what it is that you want to achieve becomes clearer, you start believing that you in fact will achieve your goals, and your desire for them magnifies. By writing your goals down in clear, positive, first-person (starting with "I"), and measurable terms -as if by miracle you "transform" and "shift" reality to bring about your desired outcomes. It's also vital to write down all your goals and make specific plans about their accomplishment. Make a plan about what diet you will chose or what changes you will make in your current diet, what you will drink and how you will exercise. It's crucially important to set the dates/deadlines for most of your fitness goals. You have to know where to start and how to measure your results.
How to Talk Your Way Into Weight Loss
Positive self-talk is a very important technique in the process of weight reduction. Self-talk can be either positive or negative and both of them have big influence on our attitude and behavior. Start to take notice how you are usually talking to yourself and why. You can find out some phrases that closely resemble: I am a lazy..., I will never be slim, I can not stick to healthy diets.... Once you take notice of them, you should begin to use positive and optimistic words and phrases instead even if you might not believe them at first. One powerful way to actively ingrain positive self talk is to set aside 15-20 minutes per day, turn on some music that makes you feel powerful, write down 3 of your goals as positive affirmations, close your eyes, visualize yourself as fit, healthy, confident, and say out loud those affirmations as you clap your hands to the rhythm of the music. While in the shower, on your way home, when you're daydreaming - whenever you can - tell yourself that you look good, that you like yourself, that you will look even better, become more attractive, that you like exercises and that you feel more energetic and committed every day, and that you will persevere and in your weight loss and fitness program.
Action + Repetition = Lifelong Habit
Destructive though patterns and habits cannot be eliminated quickly. As a result, you should repeatedly talk to yourself in a positive way, continue to write down your goals, read encouraging material, and change your focus by thinking about the solutions to your challenges. Gradually you will form new habits, create a new attitude toward yourself and life and your weight loss challenges will seem like a bad dream you once had. Use the law of attraction everyday to develop innate ability to attract what you want and to form a "I can do attitude!" that will not only bring about a healthy and attractive body, but also decrease the level of stress in your life, and make you a more confident and successful individual.
