A while ago I attended a seminar with Caroline Myss, incredible author, medical intuitive and spiritual teacher.
One of the simple and profound things she said that really stuck with me was how physical weight is related to waiting.
We can see the surface relationship all the time.
Women tell me: “I don’t go to the beach, I couldn’t possibly put on a swimsuit!”, “I was having a fat day, so I just didn’t go out.”
But the correlation goes deeper than just not doing things that you want to do because you’re feeling overweight and you have nothing to wear, or are embarrassed to be seen.
Caroline, similar to my own teachings related that physical weight is simply a SYMPTOM and reflection of excess spiritual, emotional and mental weight. Energetic weight. This kind of weight cannot be seen with the naked eye, but can be felt in the heart and with our intuitive senses.
She drew a little drawing relating how small and large traumas over our lifetimes accumulate as energetic weight inside our chakra centres; these became like anchors holding us in a stuck patterns of thinking and behaving.
The frequency of the trauma is like an energy button inside us, and whenever it gets triggered by a similar situation, place, person, thing, or event, we are unconsciously behave according to the age the pattern was created.
Or become a moody teenager with a co-worker?
Ever given your partner the “silent treatment” like you might have observed adults around you when you were a child?
She said that she had observed that the more energetic weight she saw in a person, the more they WAITED when presented with opportunities to rise and move toward their goals and dreams.
All the time, all around us are opportunities for us to fulfill our dreams and accomplish our goals.
Those with less energetic traumas weighing them down, are more able to be light, nimble and move fast when those opportunities come by, so they seem to get more done and achieve their goals, and have an easier life.
Those who are weighed down with their past energetic weight, literally have to carry their emotional baggage with them, and overcome their old unconscious programming each time they want to move forward, so acting on an opportunity becomes a much slower and more painful process.
Caroline is an expert in the chakra system, the energy centres in our body. Her book Anatomy of the Spirit is excellent.
You might not know that different types of traumas live in different centres of the body.
For example, an experience of struggle with money is an energetic pattern of beliefs that lives in the second or sacral chakra, in the area of the body around the pelvic bowl, also related to the sex organs, lumbar spine and adrenals.
Back trouble, money problems, and fatigue anyone?
An issue with not feeling heard, or holding back from speaking your truth, is a 5th chakra – throat issue, which also relates to your metabolic function and thyroid.
Having trouble with energy, weight loss and feel misunderstood, or invisible?
If you have traumatic energy “anchors” in your body, when those situations and opportunities show up, instead of taking action, you wait, and boom, the opportunity is gone… And then that event becomes another memory reinforcing your disempowering belief that you can’t earn what you want, or aren’t good enough, or that nobody listens to you.
Firstly, the energetic weight creates a pre-disposition in your hormones and bio-chemistry to hold weight in the areas that you’re “stuck”. (Check Bruce Liptons work on epi-genetics for the science on this.) And secondly, you create it through your disempowered, procrastinating “waiting” decisions.
Have you ever hit snooze, when you had planned to get up and go for a walk? Or bought take-out instead of cooking the healthy food in your fridge? Occasionally these kinds of decisions are not an issue, but when they are your repeated pattern of thinking, then it is a big problem.
In order to truly shed the energetic weight on all levels of your being; (spiritual, mental, emotional and physical) you need to learn about this, do the necessary self-inquiry to discover your core issues, and set your intention to clear the energy blockage, then practice mental control to act, even and especially when it is uncomfortable, when opportunities show up that move you forward to your goals. I am creating a whole new syllabus of short courses this year combining Meta-Coaching, NLP, Hypnosis, Advanced Energy Healing and Consciousness Activation that will allow you to learn and master this. In order to keep in the loop when these get released, be sure to sign up to my newsletter, so you don’t miss out.
I’ve passed the big 4-0! I’ve now ‘released’ 48kgs, since the birth of my son 2 years ago. To Kylie, Selina and all my GBQ sisters, you helped me to get out of my own way, so I could coach my inner critic and encourage my cheerleader. I am getting my pre-babies mojo back and am in a better headspace than when I was fighting fit! I feel like GBQ really delivered on the greatest gift, self-love and clarity, and has given me the confidence and conviction to continue my journey! Thank you.
With Kylie’s help I released the hopelessness & anger I was using as an excuse, and have stepped out of my shell with a vengeance! I’m now clear on what I want to do with my life and I’m taking steps towards making it a reality, and in doing so my entire eating habits have changed… the ‘hunger subsided’ & I’ve stuck to my better eating habits and gym workouts easily. It’s been amazing!
Working with Kylie has been life changing. Kylie helped me get back in touch with my own body, taught me how to nourish myself and get my glowing, gorgeous body. She helped me move from self-loathing to self-love. She taught me how to consciously turn down the critical voice and turn up my inner cheerleader. Without a doubt starting with your mindset is the first place to start on your weight loss journey. Lasting results for sure and totally life changing!
What I have gotten out of the course can’t be measured. I glow from the inside out! For the first time in years; I am happy because I am happy! I love myself – I can actually look in a mirror with no self loathing… I love the woman smiling back at me and not just because my body has changed on the outside – I have changed from the inside and it is a reflection!
Everything has really changed, I finally let the girl inside out. I feel like my life has really just started. I’ve had a massive increase in personal power (from zero), sense of possibility, happiness, resilience, CONFIDENCE! Reached my first weight loss goal, I have gone from a size 12 to an 8-10. I love myself and respect myself for the first time, I cannot express how much this has changed me. Thank you does not even cut it.
I have been struggling with my weight and feeling of not being good enough for as long as I can remember…This has changed for me now. I have had more awakenings and realisations and learnings than I thought possible in the past few months. This really is SOOOOO not about the weight. I TOTALLY get that now.
I have loads more energy… I’m eating so well and exercising when I can. With my 1st baby I couldn’t cope with the emotional roller-coaster that is pregnancy. I ate, and ate, and ate non-stop. My head is in such a great place at the moment. I owe it all to Kylie and your Goddess Body Quest program x
