I’ve heard you say that one should, if one really wants to lose weight, you should “make your home your safe haven.” What exactly do you mean by that?
— One Confused Mary
Good question, Confused Mary. Well, just imagine that you arrive home from a hard day’s work and your house is a mess. You haven’t dusted or swept in more than two weeks –dust accumulates, doesn’t it? There are piles of paper everywhere, mountains of laundry, no ‘real’ food in the house, only fast food junk, no good books to curl up with, and on top of all that, your glue gun (assuming you like to glue things together like I do) is jammed up and broken.
How do you think the above mess will impact on your healthy living plan? If your home is basically an obstacle course, heavy in energetic barriers, you are going to find it almost impossible to manifest all that your heart desires, most especially that svelte body you’ve been dreaming about a.k.a. permanent weight removal.
Our homes ought to (as in ‘should’ even though I am reluctant to tell people what they ‘should’ do) …
1) fully support our goals
2) accurately reflect who we are and who we aspire to be
3) allow us to flourish (vs. stagnate and feel stuck)
So what to do?
1) Clean and declutter with enthusiasm, knowing that you are …
2) Clearing your path to a better life.
3) Cleanliness is next to Godliness. So … thoroughly clear and clean your kitchen.
4) Toss any ‘food products’ that are not ‘real food.’ You know, the processed junk.
5) Stock up on fruits n’ vegetables!
What else can you do to create/make your home a safe haven? Maybe put on music that either soothes the soul, or makes you shake your booty. Perhaps, light some candles, and pray, meditate or chant. And/or create an altar to Our Lady of Weight Loss, with offerings of fruit, of course!
Please share your creative ideas! What are you going to do today to make your home a safe haven, that fully, completely and for real supports your goals?
Remember … Our Lady of Weight Loss is with you every ounce of the weigh!
Spread the word … not the icing!
