Do You Push Against Being Fat?
"If you could get to the place where you no longer feel a need to push against anything that you disagree with, you would become in alignment with what you do agree with. Even within your own body, it is your pushing against those things you don't agree with that causes you to be out of alignment with what you do agree." I really love this daily quote from Abraham (Jerry & Esther Hicks) for 3/7/12. I know I still push against things in life, like traffic jams, my kids and husband being moody, getting a speeding ticket,
any uncomfortable emotion.
Honestly, there's a part of me that would rather have a glass of wine or a piece of cake rather than feel something uncomfortable. This tendency isn't as noticeable when life feels relatively comfortable. I went for years without needing food to comfort me because my life was fairly stable, at least with my personal trigger points. Then I put myself into a position where I gave up the financial security of a six-figure job to
pursue my passion full-time, and I've found myself wanting to rely on food for comfort again, sort of my fall-back position. In the quote above, Abraham said "Even within your own body, it is pushing against those things you don't agree with that causes you to be out of alignment with what you do agree." Here is an example of how to apply this.
Let's say I don't agree with, am fearful of, and/or push against the notion of being fat. This type of thinking causes me to be out of alignment with being thin (what I do agree with or want). What does this mean? It means I need to stop resisting or pushing against the idea of being fat. Honestly, this is so hard for me because it means I need to accept my body exactly as it is and even be at peace if I were bigger. Sometimes it feels like I'm straddling the world of physicality (I have a body) and the world of spirituality (I am 99.99% a spiritual being having a physical experience). Since we are spiritual beings, why am I so attached to my body? Sometimes it seems vain to me. I do know this.
A thin, healthy body is not going to come from a mindset of disliking my body, and so I'd better find
a way to make peace with my body the way it is right now. And perhaps you should consider it too,
if your ideal body is important to you. So what can we do about this? I'm only going to suggest one
thing today, and Abraham calls it the Process of Pivoting. So let's say you look in the mirror and think
you look really fat. This brings up negative emotion and self-rejection and self-criticism. Stop yourself
and ask what you want. You don't want to feel fat. You want to feel loved and accepted and attractive.
Again, to quote, Abraham, from the 3/9/12 daily quote, "In the moment you turn your attention to what
you want, the negative attraction will stop; and in the moment the negative attraction stops, the positive
attraction will begin. And--in that moment--your feeling will change from not feeling good to feeling good.
That is the Process of Pivoting." The way that I've begun to "pivot" is when I have a self-critical thought
about my body, I say to myself, "I love you, I'm sorry, please forgive me, thank you," which you may have heard me talk about. It's a Hawaiian tradition called Ho'oponopono. Do you push against being fat? If so, try to pivot your emotions to something that feels better and "lean" into life, rather than resist it. No pun intended.
