Visualization And Meditation For Weight Loss
Weight loss through meditation and visualization starts by you visualizing your weight loss goals in your mind. This is especially helpful if you’re having trouble with setting and achieving your goals.
Here’s how you do it.
After you’ve finished your daily tasks, and you’re absolutely sure you won’t be distracted, find a quiet room and dim or turn off the lights. Lie down or recline in a comfortable position. Close your eyes and take deep slow breaths. Focus all your attention on your breathing (the sound of your breathing is a natural relaxant.)
After you’ve done this for two or three minutes, start repeating to your self the word “relax” each time you exhale with a deep slow breath. Feel your limbs and your whole body droop into a totally relaxed state. Do this “relax” breathing for about five minutes.
Now you’re ready to start your mediation for weight loss (don’t fall asleep yet!). First visualize an empty white screen, like a large movie screen. Take your time and try to make your image of the screen as clear as you possibly can. Now place on your screen the most serene picture you can imagine.
A picture with calm water in it often works well. Hold on to this calm image for about a minute, and then clear your screen back to blank. Now you’re ready to visualize your goals. You may find it effective to split up your visualization between long-term and short-term goals.
A long-term goal would be a vision of you slipping your slender body into a silky new dress. A Short-term goals would be a vision of you walking faster than ever, and feeling wonderful while you do it. The key here is to use all of your senses when you visualize in order to make your vision as real as possible.
See the slender and fit new you standing in front of the three-way mirror in the store dressing room.
Feel the silky smooth dress slide onto your firm new body.
Smell the store smells and the smell of your new dress.
Hear other shoppers milling about the store.
Use all of your senses and visualize your goal for about five or ten minutes, until you fall asleep, or can no longer keep a clear, powerful image in your head. It will take time, 15 minutes a day, every day for several months, but you’ll know when you’ve succeeded. When you become proficient at visualization, your goals will be much easier to attain, because your brain is convinced you’re attaining them briefly each night!
