I Need To Lose Weight

How many times have you looked in the mirror and said to yourself, “I need to lose weight?” Is this a trick question? Seriously, how many minutes are there in a day? That’s probably how many times you have said these words to yourself just yesterday as a matter of fact.

Those little words, “I need to lose weight” can bring on a stress level and intimidation that is hard to get around and hard to understand. We all know for a fact that if we want to lose weight that there is no magic pill that we can take when we go to bed and we will be thin and beautiful when we wake up.

Too bad there isn’t but we all know that to lose the weight we need to lose will take some hard work on our parts and we are not sure we can sustain that level of commitment for the long haul. Maintaining motivation is difficult and most human beings are inherently lazy. I’m not dissin’ anybody, I am the same way, and I will be the first to admit it.

What we do not realize is that with just a few little adjustments we can change our lives and our weight with very little effort. If you follow a few simple suggestions and guidelines then you will be on your way to having a new body to show off to all of your friends and family.

The first thing is to eat sensibly. Go to your kitchen right now and throw out all the junk food. This may be the hardest thing you have done in a long time but it needs to be done. Ok, I will let you save one item for your first weeks reward. Pick one and put it away.

Next, when you go shopping make a list beforehand and stick to it. Start by buying fresh foods, fruits, and vegetables. Or go to a local farmer’s market on Saturday morning to get some really fresh stuff from local growers. You might have to spend a little more but the quality is well worth it.

If you really do not know where to start find a cookbook and choose several recipes that you think may be good and good for you. Make your fresh food list from the recipes. Buy only what you need for the recipes, if you want to be successful then make sure you have all the ingredients you need for the dish you want to make. I find that nothing is more frustrating than starting to make something and then finding out that I don’t have all the ingredients.

Most importantly here, drink plenty of water. Try this, put a cup (or more to taste) of fresh or frozen berries into a gallon jug and fill it with water. Let the berries infuse their juices for a couple of hours and then strain the berries off through a fine mesh strainer lined with cheesecloth to catch the pulp and seeds. This will help with the mundaneness of water and add some vitamins and minerals, too. If you feel the need to sweeten it then do so with an artificial sweetener to keep the calorie count down. Following these suggestions will change your statement from, “I need to lose weight” to “I need to go buy some new, smaller clothes”.

Spirituality

How do you feel spiritually when you eat a meal that contains meat? You’ve probably never given it any thought, but that may because spiritually you feel nothing after eating a meal of meat except tired and sluggish. A diet of meat makes our bodies less functional, and we think of nourishing our bodies in terms of our organs and blood, but we don’t often think about how what we eat can impact the most important organ in our body, the brain.

When you eat a vegetarian diet, you begin to feel physically lighter and fit. When your body is fit, your mind is also lightened. Most cultures that focus more on spirituality and enlightenment are also vegetarian cultures. From the beginning of recorded history we can see that vegetables have been the natural food of human beings. Early Greek and Hebrew myths all spoke of people originally eating fruit. Ancient Egyptian priests never ate meat. Many great Greek philosophers such as Plato, Diogenes, and Socrates all advocated vegetarianism.

In India, Shakyamuni Buddha emphasized the importance of Ahimsa, the principle of not harming any living things. He warned His disciples not to eat meat, or else other living beings would become frightened of them. Buddha made the following observations: “Meat eating is just an acquired habit. In the beginning we were not born with a desire for it.” “Flesh eating people cut off their inner seed of Great Mercy.” “Flesh eating people kill each other and eat each other… this life I eat you, and next life you eat me… and it always continues in this way. How can they ever get out of the Three Realms (of illusion)?”

These are cultures that are considered more enlightened and focused more on spirituality than is Western culture. If we are to evolve into more spiritual beings, then we must begin to manage our physical lives in a way that will enhance our spirituality, and this means taking the path of vegetarianism as a path to enlightenment.

Achieving Spiritual Development Despite A Materialistic World

During the earlier days, people primarily used their instincts as well as their psychic abilities in order to figure out the world and live life in such a way that they will attract positive energy at all times. However, it has become a totally different scenario nowadays, especially that we now live in such a materialistic world wherein scientific technologies and discoveries rule our lives.

Although these things make the lives of human beings much easier and bearable, they have also unfortunately, created a barrier between us and a thing called spirituality. With such blockade obstructing our minds and hearts, we are then limited to what we can only sense and therefore, hinder us from achieving spiritual development.

Shield From Temptations And Negative Energies

Truly, it is very important that we are able to achieve spiritual development in our lives, especially in the world that we live in. Essentially, it can be our tool in shielding us from the temptations and negative energies which the modern life presents to us. With a developed spirituality within us, it can therefore be much easier for us to ignore materialistic fantasies and desires and stresses coming from the busy and hectic demands of the world. What is more, when we have finally obtained a developed spirituality, it only means that we have freed ourselves from becoming victims of the negative energies that surround us. In other words, we can always do something to protect ourselves from the things that can harm us; not only to our physical bodies but also our mentality and balance as well.

Auras Emanating From Within Ourselves

All of us have an inner spirituality and energy which generally emanate from our bodies. This is what many people call our aura. Basically, our aura comprises of the things which our body holds including our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual being. A person with a lively aura may simply mean that he is satisfied with all of the beings present inside of him. And when a person emanates a negative aura, it means exactly the other way around. However, auras are not only emanated but can also be shared with another person. This means that if a person exudes a negative aura in him, he can definitely influence other people’s aura into being in the same state.

Negativity Making It Worse For Human Beings

Furthermore, it is true that our world today is filled with such negative auras and unhealthy temptations. Many people are deprived of spiritual development simply because they are distracted by the countless materialistic things which they think are indispensable in order to survive. And what is more, instead of making people content and fulfilled with their lives, these materialistic things only make it worse for them. And so what happens is that they are ushered into wanting more making them more focused on materialism instead of on developing their own spirituality. Clearly, as long as a person does not recognize that having a fully developed spirituality is necessary, he can never be satisfied and happy with his life.

Therefore, as soon as you feel unhappy about yourself, you must immediately fight that vulnerability to be attracted to all of the negative energies around you. Such a state is very difficult to handle especially if you do not want to open your mind and heart to making your very own spiritual development. One thing is for sure, for as long as you stay in a negative state, you will certainly be geared towards getting engaged in unhealthy and negative activities as well as experiences.

Healing Through Spiritual Medicine

The world in which we live in today consists of countless material possessions and desires. Indeed, it has become a difficult task for people to acknowledge the simple things in life since they are now blinded by the quantity of riches and fame. Remember that however simple these things may be, they are much more important to the lives of human beings than those materialistic possessions you can never ever bring with you when you pass away. These simple things include the concept of spiritual medicine wherein people can truly feel saved and protected from the temptations and evils in the world. With the term spiritual, it is simply saying that we are openly bringing ourselves to our faith to God and restoring our bodies in their spiritual state.

Balanced Aspects Of The Body

It is true to say that the human body is not simply composed by the physical being but rather of other aspects as well including the mental, emotional and spiritual beings. These four things should be balanced inside the human being in order for the person to have a healthy state. However, more often than not, one or two parts of the body do not perform well and therefore; the body is left vulnerable to all sorts of negativity.

Most of the time, people do not realize the importance of their spirituality in order to maintain their well being. Especially today that we are living in such a materialistic and egoistic society; people tend to totally forget how to develop their spirituality and thereby, ultimately saving themselves from harm. And when a person experiences a decline in his spirituality, chances are his physical body is also affected. This is when his body can be ill or be inflicted with all sorts of diseases. Although scientifically he can be cured in his physical state, it does not necessarily mean that he is cured completely.

Healing A Body Through A Healing Force

It is during this time that spiritual medicine comes in. It is when a person is healed not by tangible drugs or therapies, but rather by a healing force that is much greater than any medicine that can be found on earth. This healing force comes from the external part of the universe and therefore enters the wisdom of the person and restores his functions and the areas that have been affected by his illness. Such transfer of energy is indeed a mysterious thing that nobody ever seemed to prove in a scientific and experimental manner; however, for most people it can simply be called faith.

With a suffering person waiting to be healed, spiritual medicine can readily exchange the healing force that comes from the outside or from God to the negative forces that are building within his body. Such a method can be done by a healer who has experienced spiritual awakening and development and is capable enough to mediate the transfer of the healing force. As soon as the spiritual aspect of the body is restored into its normal state, the person can already say that indeed, he has finally been cured from the burdens of his sickness.
