Is losing weight a spiritual process?

26165833_10155604180542479_3197253846801062266_nLast night I received a beautiful insight into weight and why we hold onto it.

It has to do with the hunger cue – is it physiological or spiritual? 

What does the hunger cue feel like for you?

For me, when I felt into the depth of it – it felt desperate, like my breath was being taken away – felt deep – like a karmic wound. 

Last night I sat with it and didn’t react on impulse – allowed the feelings to come up. Became curious and whoa – so insightful. 

If you are carrying more weight than you would like to (like I am) listening to your body and discerning between spiritual and physical is a great step towards release.

Geneen Roth, author of “Women Food and God” speaks of the spiritual element of weight “issues.” In this book the author shares concepts that can be appreciated intellectually but to actively be inspired to follow them in the moment, is a learning curve. Being curious is the first step towards greater awareness of patterns and a clue to the layers of self sabotage.  It can be tough to follow through with what you know versus how the body reacts to its environment.

Taking a moment to pause, reflect, breathe, gives life to a new way of being. All you need to do is repeat often and create a new neural loop.  Awareness is the key. Inspired action is the step. Calling in awareness takes a moment and the result will be, breaking the feedback loop and creating a new you.

Another part of this exploration is to discern between physical hunger, spiritual hunger and emotional hunger and learning to feed the body physically only when it really needs it, and feeding the soul/spirit regularly with spiritual practice.  What spiritual practices have you introduced to your life or can you introduce to your life?

Some have reported to change the relationships with the sensation of hunger. As a result they move energy far differently than they experienced in the past. For example with the simple observation of a 48 hour fast monthly and intermittent fasting too. Others have said that this seems to reset the urgent need to eat too, that instant need to eat. Fasting has also healed low thyroid function 

Another resource is Julia Cameron’s Writing Diet. She uses journaling to access some of what you speak about here. Use it and discover why the cravings and patterns?   And there is also permission to eat food from childhood (mindfully, fully remembering what it brings up) and trying new foods on food dates. This book is similar to her famous Artists Way book, but all around food.

The processes shared in this book dovetailed nicely with using food as medicine. The cravings are messages about what the body is in need of for physical sustenance rather than emotional or spiritual sustenance.

Mirror work is another powerful tool to reveal any undercurrent stimulus to patterns and behaviour.  

Mother Earth offers many resources too. Think essential oils that stimulate the olfactory sensations.  Also think crystals which connect you to earth and grounding. Spiritual? Yes and physiological too!  The impact on senses can change the way you behave around food, therefore establishing healthier patterns and choices.

Then what about posture – something to say when the spinal – kundalini energetic challenge is kept clear and clean – do you have more flow? Yes! More energy? Yes!

When you explore the matrix of physical, emotional and spiritual components of weight and why weight, there is definitely a more graceful and longterm, sustaining approach to weight management. I am loving this journey – I hope you will too.

As I discover the spiritual component of weight, choices and freedom are on the increase. No more need for a quick fix. Compassion has been restored. Acceptance has been returned and love has been invited back. A much happier and more confident individual has been re-birthed.

What does Bandwidth and Energy have in common?

Have you ever received message “internet connection unstable”?  What does this have to do with energy?  

There is a correlation between the bandwidth and energy.  Here is a video where I describe this correlation.

It’s a 3 step process.

  • Contraction
  • Integration
  • Expansion

Same with expanded energy and vibrations – it’s important to feel safe when you are expanding and attracting more clients, more visitors, more of what you have been working towards – yes towards your success.

electricity-705670_1920There is a saying that is bandied around “new level, new devil”.  So if you are feeling excessively expanded and bandwidth (vibrations) is unsteady – take a moment and ground.

Go through the 3 steps – contract, integrate and then expand.

This process will steer you towards expanded awareness and ultimately to your success.

If you are interested in more join us in the Business of Healing Facebook Group where we share from a expanded awareness and provide support to feel safe in the world of Business of Healing.

 

Where do you find the Master Healing Chambers?

aurora-borealis-744351_1920After decades of searching on the outside, from external sources, I have discovered the unique Master Healing Chambers. 

Where do you think they are located? 

Sure you can visit temples, churches, sacred monuments, and so many other variations of these. Have you? I have! 

Now, I know where the Master Healing Chambers are. They are in every cell of your body. 

They are ignited through thought, intention and healing. Healing clears the space. The space is then infused with light.

Sacred intention is the secret sauce. Yep – hold the intention. If you can’t hold it because fear has seeped in, in a big way – it happens. Then ask someone else to hold the space for you. 

This is when you go to a healer (or me a Medical Intuitive). 

Sometimes, it takes a lifetime to heal but sometimes, it can take an hour with the right person. 

So what does healing mean to you?

rays-656582_1280It can mean

  • remembering who you are, what you are;
  • holding space to allow other room to find their wounds and mend them
  • administering change and transformation
  • acknowledge the part disconnected in pain to then reconnect through love to become whole
  • a different colour
  • journey to become whole and complete
  • healing is a lot about acceptance and trust
  • always coming back to love
  • moving beyond hurt
  • free to thrive
  • sometimes it means just being ok. No extremes, no radical transformations. Just being ok
  • the moment of peace

Have you journeyed to your master healing chambers? Some of us have many times. For some things it takes a life time but for others there are many layers to explore. Journey daily and you will feel lighter and energetic.

Remembering that awareness is the key and transformation the gift. Conscious evolution the result.

3 Phases of Spiritual Development

I am sitting here brainstorming for a program that I am creating and came up with the 3 phases of Spiritual Development.  This is a personal process I have experienced.  It is also a process I see my clients experience, too.

Phase 1

You want to be fixed (outside of yourself).

You wake up and you want to be fixed.  You go and start to search for the answer.  You search everywhere to find someone and keep asking yourself “when am I going to find someone who will fix me?”

This is a necessary part of the awakening process.  During this phase you will connect with spiritual souls who will show you aspects of your future.

They also support you in developing the sense of enquiry.  Is the metaphysical world real?  Do I really receive the right information?  Am I making the right decisions?  Is this my path?

You go searching for the question.  This phase sheds light on the cellular matrix and experiences that are embodied within.  It is first point of enquiry.  Without enquiry there is no enlightenment.

Once the question arises you are ready for the answer.

This phase is the research phase.  It includes reading personal development books, watching youtube videos, going to professionals – healers, psychics and other esoteric professionals.

You are searching. You are exploring.

Until you quieten the ego down and travel within, the answers won’t present.

The victim archetype plays havoc with the soul.  Fighting with ego.  Know that there is an answer.  But until you find the right question, the answer will not present.

This is a time of clarity.  Working through ego and soul.  You get to know the difference between the two.

Phase 2

You realise that you can “fix” yourself

In this phase – you know from a soul level that you are the master.  You can fix yourself.  You  have searched and found the right tools.  You are willing to do the work.

You have tools and modalities that you can access.  You know it takes work and commitment to the practices.  It can be done.  You are empowered with information, knowledge and insights.

You start to trust yourself more and more.

spiritual development phase 2

Phase 3

You know there is “no fix” needed

The next phase and the final phase is you learn the secret.  That is that there is no need to be fixed.

It is now that we say “there is nothing wrong with me.’

You have the superconscious awareness that you are the same as everyone else.  You are one with the consciousness whole.  You realise that we all have the same experiences but with different content thrown in.  You start to look for the lessons.  You appreciate the experience.  The enlightenment occurs in this phase.

spiritual development phase 3

If you are reading this, you are probably in phase 2 – you know you can do it yourself.   I want to take you to phase 3 – where you don’t need to fix anything.  You are already whole and complete.  I have crafted a program specifically for you – we walk the path together for 3 months of immersion and igniting the inner sanctuary of soul wisdom.  If you would like to chat and see if this program resonates – click this link to find out more Lightness to Enlightenment.
