What is weighing you down?

Our Lady of Weight Loss Alter Your Thinking Altar
Yesterday, at the Our Lady of Weight Loss enLIGHTens workshop at Omega Institute of Holistic Studies, we not only discussed all that is weighing us down, stopping us from moving into our ‘lite;’ we bundled it up and offered it to Our Lady! We will continue to let go of old belief systems and that which no longer serves us well, as we envision our compelling futures. If you would like to follow along with us, feel free to write out what is weighing you down on paper, roll it up and tie it tight. Offer it to Our Lady of Weight Loss … or – simply read today’s Motivational Musing and comment below!
What are you tolerating? Putting up with? STOMACHING?
An Illuminating Question that LIGHTENS.Our Lady of Weight Loss Alter Your Thinking Altar
This question was discussed at length as we explored, discovered, and investigated the various things in our lives that are WEIGHING us down. Things from dust behind the refrigerator to people in our lives; from bad hair days to our own thoughts and beliefs.
I promise you that as you take the time to be honest, be brave, look deep and write down at least 50 things that you are STOMACHING, you will be brought to a place where you can see, feel, experience and even taste your ‘lite.’
The things that you are STOMACHING are in your WAY.
Imagine all your tolerations as stones, twigs, and rocks – maybe even fallen trees – which you have essentially placed (tossed or thrown) onto your path; that you now unconsciously maneuver around.
These stumbling blocks slow us down and sap our energy. As you clear your path, you will build your ‘clear sailing muscle.’ It will become increasingly easier to recognize and to say no to anything that would slow you down.
Have Second Helpings.
Let the weight and heaviness of your tolerations go. Create an airy and spacious path. Have second helpings of fun and happiness.
What are YOU stomaching? What’s weighing YOU down?
Do comment and leave below! Unburden your soul; lighten up!
Spread the word … NOT the icing,

    I don’t even know where to begin. I am putting up with, tolerating – my entire life right now and because I’ve been ill, because I need my decent paycheck, because I haven’t saved enough money, because after 9/11 my positions have been, for the most part, eliminated, I am very stuck. Stuck in a miserable job (but good pay), a tiny apartment (but good rent), and a health situation I can only move along toward wellness at it’s pace, not mine and that includes my physical weight, along with the mental weight. I am tired. I am scard. I am stuck. And I am tolerating being stuck because I just don’t know how/where to start.

    Tea Bird,
    What do you mean you don’t know how or where to start? You’ve already started!!! Just acknowledging your situation & saying it “out loud” is a HUGE first step. You are on your way!!! All the best from Chris in TX

    I lost 250 lbs in one weekend about 2 months ago when my husband said he wanted a divorce and moved out. Since then I have lost 15 lbs of “real” weight, without dieting or depriving myself. I had been “stomaching” a bad marriage for a long, long time…
    What else am I stomaching? a job that pays well and that I do well but provides no emotional satisfaction, dreams put on hold to pander to the man who just left me for somebody else, a dirty house, and a brush pile in the yard that needs burnt off.
    that’s all for now but I think that’s Enough!

    I was stuck with my grown son living in my house. tormenting all who would dare to come there. He disrespected us no matter how much we repeatedly told him not to. On last night I rid my self from him. Before he left he let us know that we were not his parents and that we were wrong for asking him to leave. Children of all age listen your parent get tired of put up with you. Get your own place let them live in peace. They have taken care of you now you must leave and began your life. All I want to do is focus on being the human being that God is calling for in this hour. Not a punching bag for my grown kids displeasures. I worked on losing weight this year it was a struggle but I did it. Now I’m trying lose the last 10 but it is hard maybe now I can focus on me for a change!!!!!! I glad he gone. I wish I ask him before now. Peace is the prize.

    My dusty house, my full email boxes-personal and work, my messy home office, my unfinished projects, my trying to lose weight-I am now focused again and feel like this time it will work. I lost about seven ty pounds and put on twenty in about three years. I have stopprd the gain and am slowing losing again 1.6 pounds lost, some of my co-workers are not easy to work with, I will not judge and see it as “it just is.’ I feel better already!!
