Reflect on all your spiritual beliefs. Heal your relationship with God. Accept what frightens you. The weight on your body is nothing compared to the weight on your heart. You are carrying burdens that you were not meant to carry.
A child trusts an adult like adults trust God. In healthy environments this is free and relaxed. If a child learns that adults cannot be trusted, he believes that he is on his own and has to handle everything by himself. Thus, he cannot process his emotions effectively. He cannot work through them, so he holds them.
Don’t resist the flow of your life; relax in the middle of it and marvel at the ever-unfolding marvel that is life itself. God knows how to be God, so let him. Trust him to help with your healing. Relax and be free in this relationship. Wanting to lose weight is not wanting to be less yourself. It is wanting to be more of your true self.
- Create a place in your home that will remind you that love, not fear, is the true power in your life. Create an altar of love. Add a chair, some meditative readings, and some objects meaningful to you.
[My place has a starfish, sea shells, sea glass, rocks, petrified wood, a wood bowl, feathers, and a couple of photos. Feel free to share what you put in your special place.]
- Remember what is holy. Remember what is not holy cannot hurt you.
