Getting Unstuck?

Getting Unstuck

Do You Feel Stuck? It happens to the best of us. We hit a plateau or we just seem to lose steam. We drop our attention from our goal. Even if you don’t feel like you hit a plateau but you do feel like your focus has been waning, there are many things you can do to get through this.

Here are a few practices I recommend:

    • Change it up!  Change up your routine a bit. There’s nothing more invigorating than change.

 

    • Begin your day with Intention setting meditations. Setting intentions at the start of your day sets the tone for the rest of the day. Remember the key to intention setting is putting it in the present tense as if it has already happened, and make sure to feel it! An example – “I am so happy and grateful now that I am more mindful and present during mealtimes.”

 

  • EFT – Here are some tapping phrases you could use to get unstuck, using the conversational tapping method:

“I feel like I’ve lost focus on my weight release goal”

“I feel stuck”

“I’ve lost a bit of steam and motivation”

“It would be great if I could get unstuck”

“I always feel so good when I am on track with my goals”

“I just have to start”

“Baby steps are okay”

“I can start there”

 

“It’s going to feel really good to be motivated again”

“I am feeling a little bit better now”

“It will be easy to get on track again”

“I just need to be more mindful”

“That’s easy to do”

“I can tap for 5 minutes a day, to help me move through this”

“I’m excited to be getting back on track!”

“I can do this!”

 

  • Using Afformations – Afformations just like affirmations, focus on the positive. The key difference however, is asking a positive question rather than using a statement. Based on Noah St. John’s book The Secret Code of Success, an afformation is the formulation of a question to empower your mind. Rather than just stating something is true (as with an affirmation) an afformation asks why it is true. Our minds appreciate questions and are eager to search for answers. He likens this process to an “automatic search function” in the brain. Doing afformations isn’t necessarily about finding the answers, although sometimes your mind will offer up some. According to St. John, asking the questions helps you to positively manifest your desires.

 

Some afformations you could use are:

“How is that I am able to stay focused on my goal each and every day?”

“How is it that I am so motivated to achieve my goal?”

“Why is it that I am releasing weight so easily now?”

“Why was it so easy for me to get back on track?”

“How is it that I have no desire for sweets?”

“How did I get so good at being prepared?”

“How have I been able to release attachment to the outcome?”

“Why do I easily get enough physical exercise each day?”

“How is it that I have so much energy and vitality?”

“How is it that I fit into  size __ clothes?”

“Why is it that I only eat until I am satisfied?”

“How did I get so good at listening to my body’s signals?”

“How did I end up at my goal weight so quickly and with such ease?”

 

  • Join a Challenge. A challenge is a great way to get you back on track and to help you get your mojo back. I have put together the 6 Week Synergy Breakthrough Challenge and the energy is high and intentions are flying.

 

  • Get some additional support – enlist the help of a friend, coach, or group to help you get back on track and to help keep you accountable. Sometimes you need an accountability buddy to help put the fire under your butt.

 

  • Visualize yourself being motivated and doing all the things you used to do when you were focused on your goal. Periods of visualization throughout the day can be very transformative.

The Book That Kept Falling Off My Bookshelf

The Book That Kept Falling Off My Bookshelf

  If you’re new to my blog you may not know this fact about me – I am a huge book lover! I am a total self-help junkie (in the best way possible), and I am always striving to better my life, and improve my emotional, spiritual, and physical health. So, with that being said, you can imagine how many books I have in my house! 

  Last week, in front of one of my bookshelves, I noticed an old book on the floor in front of the bookcase.  I put it back in it’s place on the shelf, and hours later I found it on the floor again, I picked it up and returned it once more. The next day, the same thing. The day after that my partner noticed it too and mentioned that he keeps putting it back on the shelf only to find it on the floor again.

  Seeing this as a MAJOR sign from the Universe, I decided not to put it back on the shelf,   but to read it instead.

I am about half way through the book and am paying special attention to any messages that I may need to hear.  The book is Richard Bach’s One.

The Zen of Weight Release

The Zen of Weight Release

The Zen of Weight Release has nothing to do with losing weight. When you think of yourself “losing weight”, do you have visions of yourself at the gym in baggy sweat pants, sweating in all the wrong places, and gasping for your next breath of air, while the twenty something sorority girl running full speed on the treadmill besides you is barely breaking a sweat? 

 

Do you also associate losing weight with deprivation, diets, long forgotten willpower, and anal retentive portion control?

 

Well that’s how many people envision losing weight. When you lose the word “lose”, and replace it with “release” you are one step closer to letting go of extra weight. 

 

The Zen of Weight Release is not a physical discipline that can be taught by the weight trainer at the gym, or by your Weight Watchers Instructor. The Zen of Weight Release is actually the practice of studying the mind and seeing into the nature of who you are.   read more

Step 4 To Achieving Independence From Your Food Obsessions

Step 4 To Achieving Independence From Your Food Obsessions

In this series I am explaining the 7 steps to achieving Independence from your food obsessions. So far we’ve talked about:

 

Step 1 – Tuning In

Step 2- Discover

Step 3- Clear

Today we are going to discuss step 4 which is RELEASE.

 

In order to be free from your food obsessions, you need to release them.

 

Release and clear are two very similar concepts, however with regards to the Synergy Weight Release System™, when I refer to release I am referring to the process of releasing the story, releasing the attachment to the outcome, releasing the HOW that it’s going to happen, and releasing the need for this obsession in your life.

Angel Card – Solar Plexus Chakra

I have decided to Post 10 days of Angel Card Readings using Doreen Virtue’s Angel Therapy Oracle Cards.  Today is Day 8.  As I sit quietly in a calm and relaxed state, I ask the Universe to show me a card with a message that is important for whomever stumbles upon this post.   While keeping the cards down I select a card from the fanned out stack.  Today’s Angel Card Reading is the Solar Plexus Chakra.

On the card it says:  “It is safe for you to be powerful and take charge of your life in positive ways.”

The in depth meaning per the booklet enclosed with the Oracle Cards:  This card comes to you because the angels wish to help you with issues concerning power and control.  They first want to reassure you that you are powerful. You, who were made in the image of the Creator, hold those same qualities, including power.  It doesn’t matter if you feel it or if you’re afraid of your inner might – The fact is: You are powerful. read more

The Benefits of Mindfulness Meditation

The Benefits of Mindfulness Meditation

Mindfulness Meditation  is one of the best ways to silence the mind and release resistance.  There are many benefits of mindfulness meditations, but before I list them here, you may be wondering what mindfulness meditation is.  Mindfulness meditation is the style of meditation where you focus on a mantra, or your breath, or both.  It’s purpose is to draw your attention inward and to be at peace with the present moment.  When you focus on your breath or a mantra, and thoughts creep in, which they often do, you simply and gently bring your attention back to your mantra or your breathing.  When you quiet your mind for 20 minutes, once to twice a day, you begin to release stress, calm your nervous system, and quiet the mind.

The Benefits of Mindfulness Meditation:

  1. Clearing the internal chatter or “monkey mind”. By clearing the monkey mind you are processing your stress and freeing your mind of the cycle of endless repeated thoughts throughout the day, leaving your mind more open to insight and solutions.  When the mind is overactive with chatter, it can sometimes lend a hand to self-sabotage, so when you release the chatter you are releasing your tendency to self-sabotage. read more
