Warrior Weight Loss II
on APR. / 19 / 2011 | 0 comments
In Part I of Warrior Weight Loss I discussed the proper use and focus of your mind and words. Your thought or mind diet is the most crucial element in getting the leaner you that you want. This involves using your imagination, which I consider to be your mind’s katana, or samurai sword.
It is important to know how to use your mind-sword of imagination as it can either help you or harm you. The same goes for your second mind-sword. This is your wakazashi, or short sword of the mind…your Emotions.
It is the second sword that makes your visualization have more power and effectiveness. It allows you to create what you see in your mind faster and easier. Your emotions are the secret weapon in helping you become leaner and healthier and here’s how.
What do you really want when you are lean and healthy? You want to feel happy or have a sense of relief or a sense of accomplishment, right? These emotions are easier to bring forth right here and now than the lean body you desire. The shape of your body will follow the images you put in your mind and will move faster when coupled with strong emotions.
The fun part is emotions can be influenced right now. All you have to do is think of a past happy or exuberant time and if you were to dwell on it and really daydream it, you will feel like you are actually there. This skill is very important, because the subconscious mind that is in charge of your weight works in associations, not logic.
It will change your body’s shape based on the feelings of feeling good right now!
So, when you visualize yourself lean you should always have the feelings of how great that is. If your feelings are in a state of “I hope so….or this isn’t going to happen”, your visualization will not happen. You will get frustrated and most likely revert back to old ways.
Leanness will occur when your feelings of ‘how great this would be” are strong and coupled with the visualization of the lean and healthy you. Now, some people have a hard time generating good feelings, so here is a quick technique I call ‘bridging’ to help you.
Here is how I do it. My last great ‘Yahoo’ experience was when the Packers won the Super Bowl. I was totally elated. So, when I need to generate strong good feelings, I remember what it was like at the end of the game and my family and I were jumping with joy.
Then, when my feelings are high, I quickly insert the goal or goals I desire. They are now associated with very strong feelings of jubilation and victory. Exactly what I want when I achieve my visualized goal.
This bridging technique will quickly help you accomplish your goals of a lean, healthy and happy you. I will soon have on my website, www.blackbelthealing.com a self-hypnosis CD or mp3 download on Warrior Weight Loss. Check back from time to time…I hope to have it within the month.
