The modern world brought advancement and ease in our lives, but at the same time introduced a new health issue to us and it is called obesity or being overweight. Our ancestors, who were very close to nature, may never felt this physical condition. Judging from the current scenario, we can obviously see that our current lifestyle is full of mental stress, very little or no physical activity, and eating foods, which are genetically modified, packed and preserved. No proper schedule for breakfast, lunch, and dinner and being less aware of how we spend our daily routine life including unhealthy diet leaded to this problem.
Our body is at best when we are living life close to nature, but now we live in a modern world where we are getting far and far away from nature, which results in poor health condition. Obesity is also one of the main outcomes of this scenario.
In order to lose weight, one has to accept the fact fully that his/her weight is more than what it should be. This is the first step to self-acceptance that you are overweight. Second he/she has to decide what is his/her ideal weight is. For this, you can consult a family doctor or a dietitian. After this you have to understand what amount of extra weight you have to deal with and if not acted upon what kind of serious effects it can have on your mind, body, and in turn on your life. So, the real task begins from here.
We have heard so many seminars on how to get perfect weight, but none of them works for us till now. I want to share my personal experience with the weight management. I have seen myself of 78 kg fat for more than 2 years. It was a really difficult situation and high time for me as I was 23 years of old. That drove me in severe depression, no enthusiasm and living life in the secluded world. I didn’t like to go out or meet people at that time and the shopping for my clothes was one of the nightmares. I got all the possible health problems due to this including the disturbance in hormones.
I was looking for the solutions for myself by eating less, skipping meals and trying the walk and everything, but nothing worked really. I would say my dad is the real motivator to make me come out of this situation. From the childhood, I have seen him encouraging me at every moment. He could feel the situation I was passing through. He said, “You are the person who makes big goals all the time and achieve it. You achieve best results in studies or any competition, but you are zero at taking care of your health. Why don’t you use your goals for getting the perfect weight?” And he challenged me that I should make myself perfect in every way and ready to help whatever I need. This was the real challenge for me as I was not eating much that time but still gaining more weight. He asked me to use Reiki, the law of attraction and also took me to the dietitian. I am vegetarian by nature and don’t eat eggs or any meat. But trust me; what I am going to share with you in this article will work for all of you regardless of being vegetarian. I lost 14 kg of weight in less than 3 months without any severe exercise or physical activity. Everything is in your brain. “Whatever you think, you become.” And this became really true for me.
There are three main things I focused on:
According to my dietitian, I was eating too little due to fear of getting fatter and that caused even more accumulation of fat in my body. My body was in tension that it would not get enough food so it was storing everything it got. Also, I was living a very stressful life due to a variety of reasons including lack of sleep. She taught me, I need to eat small portions of food at the regular interval, which was every 2-3 hours for me. Take a small plate and make it full with enough vegetables and salad and eat with what you love to eat. She told me to control on salt and sugar and also the amount of oil. During the whole day, I was eating 1 teaspoon of sugar, less salty food and 2 spoonful of oil in total with whatever I eat. One more thing, it is important you add more protein in your diet and can eat them alone in the morning. I used to eat boiled beans with all the spices.
And the most important thing, after every 5 days, I took a one-day break. It means I don’t take any solid food or salt after the lunch till the next day morning. And take plenty of liquids, including coconut water, milk, lemon water, fruits and tea or coffee. Also, I need to sleep 7 hours per day at minimum to recover from all types of stress. During the first week, I lost 3.5 kg by following this and it went on.
Reiki played a crucial part in this. Clearing aura is very important before the session. I do Reiki on each and every food and liquid I consume and also was keeping a journal for the food I ate and every night I planned out for the diet I am going to eat on the next day. In the evening, I used to eat whatever I like with one small plateful. I also drink a plenty of Reiki lemon water every day. Chew and feel the positive Reiki energy in every bite. I give Reiki to my weighing machine and also Ajna chakra. People who are having obesity due to stress should give Reiki before sleep, which helps them to remove stress from their life. The important chakra is the Solar Plexus as it takes care of metabolism and your digestion. Also, give Reiki to Ajna Chakra, which makes you more conscious about your eating. Not to forget the heart chakra as many emotional blocks create this situation.
You should visualize yourself everyday as you want to become. That creates a new picture in your mind of yourself, which creates structural friction with the present. So, either you will lose weight or you will drop your goal. So, visualizing everyday stops you from regaining back the weight you have lost. Also, make a note whenever you lost some weight. Give a gift to yourself by buying a new dress or any new thing, which makes you remind you are doing all well for your health and your body. That motivates you even more. Visualize before you sleep and every morning that you are being perfect at every aspect. Seal everything with the power symbol all the time.
And at last, I would say, I am blessed to have amazing parents and fiancé in my life who have supported me with everything in my life also when I was at my worst. So, whoever reading this article, this is a hearty request from me, help everybody around you facing this at every stage and keep them positive and motivating to make them be the best version of their authentic self.
Love and Light! Be Blessed!
