Where does the influence of the mind begin and where does it end? How much can we take charge of our body and its functioning? To a certain degree we are the master of our life. Since we choose how we react when life deals us cards that we would prefer to not be handed. So is it true that we are also the master of our body? Can we influence how are body uses our food for example?
This line of thinking happened after reading an article on a Dutch website while researching auto-suggestion and how to change habits. The article stated that by a simple and very effective experiment you can raise the energy available to you. It said the following:
Before you begin a meal, take time to tell your body and the food that the energy of the meal is not for storage (in fat tissue) but to be used by your muscles and organs. You will notice that you have more energy, and loss of weight will follow soon after. When the weight remains fairly the same, it is time for the following phase: ask the body to release all excessively stored energy and make it available for muscles and organs.
If this is true, what I rationally can see as such, it opens up more ways that we can be in charge of our bodies. How about telling your body to remove warts? Or grow blond hair instead of the grey hair that has been progressively taking the blond hair over?
I am curious about the experiment mentioned. Steve Pavlina often says how we need a 30 day period to change a habit. I think it would be interesting to tell all my food to be used on organs and muscles and not for storage.
Would it change my level of energy?
Would I loose weight?
What is your bet on that happening?
P.S. on December 28th I found out that Abraham through Esther Hicks has a new video on you tube called Think and Get Slim, Natural Weight Loss. It is from 240 minute video on natural weight loss. Here is the question from woman that has tried every diet, done every exercise, and still cannot lose weight.
Your mental attitude is all that you need to effectively loose weight!
