The Best Version of You!

April 30, 2015

When you have an issue or concern that needs some resolution or healing, you can be certain that the frequency of what you'd like to experience in its place is not aligned with the frequency you are holding. If it were, it wouldn't be an issue for you because you would already be in the space that you desire as an energetic match to the matter at hand. It's all part of being a work in progress on the journey of life as you step into your fullest potential, your greatest self and the best version of you!

Let's take a look, for example, at the issue of weight and/or body image. Every thought or belief we hold around this subject is an energy or a vibration - alive and breathing and living within each of us! On a collective level, you can imagine how the energy around weight and body image has been used and abused, traumatized and distressed throughout time. The thoughts, beliefs and programs from family, society, cultures and the entire world have been handed down to each of us through many similar and diverse ideas, thoughts, concepts and notions. We carry them all within - conscious and unconscious perceptions around the topic of weight.

If you're wanting to do some work around this, or any other issue, it's important to become an energetic match to any changes you wish to produce. So it would then be a significant step and the perfect time to heal and create a new and improved relationship with your topic. An effective method to get the ball rolling would be to begin by loving, embracing and showing gratitude for the body you do have. Take a deep breath, as you place your hand over your heart, with the intention of connecting directly to the energy of whatever beliefs, programs, perceptions or opinions you have (conscious and unconscious) around weight.




As you connect to the energy of your beliefs, you are ready to begin the work of transforming your relationship. With a sincere heart, you can make a few proclamations, such as: "Body, you and I are in this together. We are one. I am sorry for all those throughout time who have mistreated you in any way. Please forgive me for my part in this experience. I am so very grateful for all you have done to take care of me, to keep me alive, to serve and support me. Now it's my turn - please show me how I can serve and support you!"

This is an example of aligning, supporting and blessing your body and releasing the old, outdated beliefs that do not serve you in the highest way. When we include all the views, opinions and programs from the past, we are connecting to the zero point where it all began and got passed on down through the generations of time to the present moment and beyond. Envision all being released and transmuted. Make a claim or a statement that you intend to connect to the awareness that you are one with the knowledge, wisdom and understanding of Source, the Universe, the I AM Presence - and you know you will be guided, assisted and supported in aligning with what you wish to create around the subject of your weight or body image. Imagine that the energy of all you need to know, the awareness, the understanding - is being offered and presented to you every step along the way as needed.

You can then proceed and request that you be shown how to function, thrive and flourish with ease and grace on your path of transformation. You might even wish to consider asking to let go of any resistance which stems from the mind thinking it has to give up something it feels it needs. You can then reassure your mind that it will be gaining so much more from the process or any changes to come.

I've begun using this simple yet effective method regarding several different topics for myself. And I have added the practice of giving love and gratitude for the outcome I wish to see on a daily basis. A few weeks ago I began doing some work around the issue of allergies. Part of my daily routine is to power cleanse my space, my energetic field with a guided meditation to relax and connect more deeply with the healing and restorative energy of Source. I always end with several minutes of gratitude. I send love and appreciation to every cell (all 10 trillion of them) in my body for all they do to care for and support me each day. I see these cells all glowing and overflowing with the powerful energy that love and gratitude generate. This allows my cells and my body to align with a good feeling frequency in order to receive the greatest of outcomes. An empowering place to live and create as you step into your fullest potential, your greatest self and the best version of YOU ... woo-hoo!

Quotes to Ponder


The energy of the mind is the essence of life.
~Aristotle

To heal and release a pattern that does not serve you, it must be pulled out by the root in order to keep it from "growing" back. You must go to the origin or underlying cause to really let it go and be free.
~Sherri Bishop

When you catch a glimpse of your potential, that's when passion is born.
~Zig Ziglar
