I am – Weight loss exercise 1

woman4

The weight you are seeking to let go of was added to your consciousness before it was added to your body. Your weight is the weight of your emotional shadows that haven’t yet had the light shined on them. Your weight is your thoughts and your feelings frozen within you. If you do not process through the thoughts and feelings but eat to numb the pain instead, it is unprocessed pain.

Unprocessed pain has to be released. There are two types of thoughts: those from fear and those from love. Fearful thoughts are released through a transcendence of loving thoughts.
