The Law of Attraction is one of the universal laws that we can utilize to our advantage in all aspects of our lives. We are the deliberate creators of our reality. We each have our own set of struggles in this life. For many, healthy body image and self love is one of them.
If you made it to this post, I have great news! Your are at a pivotal point in your self-growth and physical transformation. There are no coincidences. If you are brand new to this concept, welcome! If you have studied this subject in the past, let this be a gentle reminder of what you already know.
The 3 key points I want to emphasize are: Request, Surrender, and Give Thanks.
Request: Ask the universe for guidance in supporting your goals. Be specific. Give details, don’t be timid. Whatever you want. Just ask! The important part here is to focus on what you do want, not what you don’t. The universe responds to the level of energies you have surrounding a subject, it doesn’t discriminate between positive and negative. Feel passion and excitement for where you are about to be. The answer to your request will be granted in as little or as much time as you believe it will take to happen. Have faith that it is going to happen. You can even have the timeline be a part of your request. As long as you are clear, and focused when asking, your request will be granted.
Surrender: The next step may feel unnatural at first, but it is completely necessary for your request to be granted. As much as you may have focused on what you do not like about your body in the past, from this moment forward: LET GO. You have made your request, now trust the universe to do it’s part. If you continue to focus on the subject, you will slow the attraction, and push what you want further away. Feeling the best you can feel at any given moment will accelerate the answer to your request. The universe responds to your energy. If you have ever heard “fake it ‘til you make it,” that applies here. Act as though you have it, eventually it will become your reality. This leads to the third and final part of the equation, which is gratitude.
Give Thanks: If you were granted your request right now, what would you do? This isn’t a trick question. Maybe you would buy new clothes, walk a little more proud, or book a bikini photo shoot, but before any of that you would have extreme gratitude that your request has been answered. This goes hand in hand with acting as though you already have it. Thank the universe as often a you can for granting your request. When you are filled with gratitude for what you do have, there is no room for thinking about what you lack. This is the most powerful piece of the equation. The more you are grateful, the more you will have to be grateful for. Give thanks for other things in your life that are not related to your request. You have so many gifts, and you are perfect in this moment. You are alive, you are working on being the best version of yourself that you can be. You are giving thanks for the many resources that are available to you for gaining new knowledge. I believe in you, you should believe in you too!
This leads me to a final note: Working on your “self” seems “selfish” at face value, but when we look at the bigger picture it is actually “selfless.” When we feel our best and are filled with gratitude, we are more available to those around us. We can serve others in the best way we know how because we are not letting our insecurities leak out and unknowingly affect others.
Think about one of the best days of your life, how did you feel? How were your interactions with others? Things that come to mind for me are: smiling, exuding joy, willingness to help, feeling my light shining upon others. On the flip side, during a bad day, I was not my best self. I complained to others, had cold interactions, was ignorant to the gifts given to me daily. When we feel our best, we do our best. Don’t be hard on yourself if you have a bad day, it is probably residual energy from past experiences. The main objective is to break the cycle by focusing on what you do want, surrendering to the universe, and giving thanks! Be the best version of yourself that you can be, so you can extend that version to others. This high vibrational energy is contagious and will act as a catalyst for positive change in others as well.
