Skinny Kari's Blog – Adventures in Fat Loss and Beyond

{April 12, 2010}   Visualize Whirrled Peas!

Whirrled Peas. World Peace. How bout just 10 pounds off the scale in my bathroom when I step on it in the morning?  When combined with other weight loss techniques (for instance your bios life slim), visualization his said to have been proven to vastly improve the chances of successful weight loss.  If you can see it, you can be it.  and all that “ra ra” stuff.

Starting today I will be visualizing stepping on my scale and seeing it read 131 pounds instead of the 141.5 it appears to be stuck at.  I’m not sure how I keep looking thinner, and my clothes keep being roomier and yet that scale stays the same.  I know I should be thrilled with a flatter tummy and a little less jiggle in the trunk, but I still want the scale to move.

Lets see how it goes.  I will spend 3 dedicated minutes every morning after my yoga for a month visualizing my scale reading lighter and see if it works.  Anyone want to join me in this charade? If so read on past the closing for some visualization tips and techniques I stole from another blog.

Love ya! Mean it!

Some notes before you begin.

Remain positive no matter what. In practicing any techniques that are designed to help you manifest your desires it is important to remember that the Universe Knows Best.  Do the meditation with your full reverence and energy and then just allow the Laws of Attraction and other subtle laws of the Universe to work their magic for you.

Guided Weight Loss Visualization Meditation w/ 3 Step Rhythmic Breathing Technique:

  • Set your alarm or other time device for 3 to 11 minutes.  You may wish to start with 3 and then build up to 11.
  • Lie on your back comfortably,  ( I actually sit up against the walls with my legs crossed in a yoga like position…however you are most comfortable is fine) close your eyes and begin 3 Step Rhythmic Breathing (3srb) as follows.
  • 3 Step Rhythmic Breathing: Without changing the quantity of air you normally take in, start to breathe in and out to the following rhythm.  3 seconds for the inhalation and 2 seconds for the exhalation.  So 5 seconds per complete breath.  This will mean you are breathing at 12 breaths per minute (down from 15-17 you normally do).  In addition, have your chest and abdomen rise and fall together as you inhale and exhale respectively.
  • Spend at least 1-2 minutes just doing 3SRB to establish the rhythm and then move forward.  Your mind and body should now be relaxed and everything should be ripe to receive your intentions.
  • Now while immersed in this rhythmic breath begin the visualization meditation below.
  • Without animosity to the fat cells of your body (as they are a part of you), visualize a white light entering from the soles of your feet.  Imagine now this light traveling up your body slowly and as it moves up it is dissolving fat deposits and reshaping those regions.  For areas where you carry excess weight spend more time.  All the time keeping up 3 Step Rhythmic Breathing.
  • Once the light has reached the very top of your head, inhale deeply, hold your breath and visualize your body exactly as you would like it to be.  Make sure when you visualize your body shape you are also sending the message of being not just slim and trim, but, also healthy and fit.
  • You may repeat the visualization meditation a few times if you like.
  • Once you complete your last visualization meditation cycle, try to think of nothing and just remain silently empty, only doing the 3 Step Rhythmic Breathing.

Hints & Tips for Weight Loss Visualization Meditation w/ 3 Step Rhythmic Breathing Technique:

  • When doing the visualization concentrate on the light and its action on the body and allow the 3 Step Rhythmic Breathing to happen by default if possible.
  • At the end really concentrate on doing the 3 Step Rhythmic Breathing and try to just relax as much as possible.  It takes some time to master 3SRB so don’t worry if you can’t do it perfectly right off the bat.

The above tips were taken from another blog…you can read the entire article by clicking HERE.

I would like to add that if you are not comfortable with envisioning yourself with white light melting away the pounds, you can visualize other things.  As I said, I will be visualizing the scale with lower numbers.  I already see my fat melting away so I’m cool with that part.  You could also envision yourself running on the beach in a bikini, or whatever it is you wish you were in shape enough to do.  Running around with your kids,  Wearing those skinny jeans you put away two years ago.  The idea is to get into a relaxed state and just see what you want to be.  Create that and it will come.   Again, lets see if it works.  Let me know if you’ll join me.  Print off a calendar from your office suite and check off the days. We’ll start together tomorrow and Compare notes next month on May 13th.

Good Luck! xoxo
