New Age Easy Weight Loss Diet Ideas

One Seth book passage about being overweight, I read for the first time nearly twenty years ago. It then seemed very weird and likely will seem so to many of you reading these words. Yet the psychic involved, slender Jane Roberts, was one of the most gifted psychics of the twentieth century and, as far as I know, never had a problem with being overweight. So what were Seth's words in Chapter 16 of the The Nature of Personal Reality?
You are overweight. It is a physical fact. It grieves you, but you believe it completely. You begin a round of diets, all based upon the idea that you are overweight because you eat too much. Instead, you eat too much because you believe you are overweight..... In the oddest fashion, then, your diets simply reinforce the condition..... Until you change your belief, you will continue to utilize your food in the same fashion- and to overeat.

If the above words are true, then how does one stop believing the facts of the rolls of flab, the extra pounds on the bathroom scale, and the extra difficulty doing physical things a slender person does easily? Stopping these beliefs can be done with natural hypnosis as suggested in the above book, or you can use pretending or imagery or affirmations that I have suggested elsewhere on these pages. No matter what method you choose, however, there must be temporary images or pretending or hypnotic beliefs that COUNTER what you think of as reality. You cannot concentrate on the fat and the flab; that REINFORCES the weight loss problem.

Another relevant comment from the above book:

Whenever you are trying to rid yourself of a dilemma, make sure that you do not concentrate your attention on it instead. This acts to cut off other data, and to further intensify your focus upon your difficulty.
The above message, which tends to be confirmed with experience, is that we get what we concentrate on, more of it. If you concentrate on the fat and the flab, then more of it will be the easy result; instead, focus on the goal of the "normal-weight-you."
