The Universe is On My Side, My Thoughts However Are Not…

Last Thursday I had a revelation. I have been working with my coach on my limiting beliefs like: I will not be a good coach, I am never going to be successful, I won’t be good enough….etc. She continues to point out to me that all of these beliefs are falsities. It is simply my mind playing a trick on me to get me to stay exactly where I’m at, this I am aware of being a coach. She said that everytime those thoughts creep in to push through them and then amazing things happen, and I have been. That is all fine and dandy.

The revelation that I had last week is about these last ten pounds that have been haunting me. I am perfectly comfortable in my body, I am not overweight at all, however I know I could lose ten pounds and live a little more comfortably. I already eat healthy and prepare my meals, I workout at least 4-5x week, and I keep my thoughts positive and uplifting. On paper everything looks great! When I tried to lose weight before and failed, I was doing everything I thought I should be doing as well, with a constant weight gain. Now that I have lost weight and kept it off eating whatever I want, whenever I want; I turn again to that piece of paper where everything looks perfect….

There are times when I talk myself out of working out. There are times when I talk myself into sitting on the couch watching TV for many hours. There are times when I talk myself out of going to the grocery store and all of this seemed just fine before. What I realize now is these are all lies. I love working out, there is nothing I would rather be doing, so if I am talking myself out of doing it, that’s a lie. I hate watching TV for hours, I really do! If I am doing that, that is a lie! I love cooking and going to Trader Joes and the Farmers Market, if I am not doing this, this is a lie. What I now know is that everytime I have “talked myself out of doing something” my mind won. Yes, that tricky little thing actually made me believe that these things are true when in fact the fear of change is driving all of them.

I am ready to change. I am ready to lose ten pounds. I am ready for my business to grow so that I can transform many lives. I am ready to recognize my thoughts as lies to keep me exactly the way I am, but I will not listen. The universe is always on my side and it is on yours too. Whatever you desire it will give you, but you must treat it with love, compassion, and integrity. Then the universe will move you right along through discomfort, pain and fears and out the other side, ten pounds lighter.

When will you truly start to trust the universe? When will you throw out the thoughts that are really lies guided by fear of change?
