Stressed: 7 ways to pray, chant and breathe it away.

ART want power.jpgAre you stressed? Irritable? Having trouble sleeping? Do you feel like screaming? Crying? Pouring a jug of water over your boss’s head?
We all feel stressed from time to time, so it is essential to have an arsenal of coping mechanisms at hand. Instead of heading for the refrigerator, here are some stress management tips that should help ease the pressures of life!
Breathe. No kidding! Taking in a few deep cleansing breaths and slowing down does wonders. Are you ready? Breathe deep…. inhale, exhale. Ahhhhhh.
Change your routine. Shake it up baby. If you’ve been sitting all day, get up! Let’s get physical! Stretch. Walk. And … if you’ve been lifting heavy boxes (anyone out there lifting???), then sit down and take a load off. Think deep thoughts.
Keep things in perspective. When you find yourself in an emotional twist, ask yourself … “Will this matter in ten years? Five years? Tomorrow? In ten minutes?”
Smile and Laugh. Every chance you get. (Laugh lines are sexy!)
Add Vitamin C to your diet. Studies show that vitamin C knocks out the secretion of stress hormones.
Pray. Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee. ~ Isaiah 26:3 KJV
Chant: Aum Mani Padme Hum (pronounced “Om mahnay pahdmay hoom”). The most popular translation is “Hail the Jewel in the Lotus.”

Laws of Un-Attraction: Top 10 Tips on How to Be Fabulous

Goddess of Lost and Found PoundsChances are you’ve heard about the Laws of Attraction. The basic concept is that you attract into your life whatever you think about. Positive thoughts and beliefs create a positive life; negative thoughts and beliefs attract negativity.
One sure way to get those positive vibes swirling out there is to be attracted to yourself, in a healthy and self-affirming way (not in a narcissistic, oh my goodness, I’m the greatest ever, where’s the mirror – I need to look at myself again – kind of way). Truthfully, if you aren’t attracted to you, if you don’t fully recognize your qualities and embrace yourself, how attractive could you possibly be to the universe.
One thing we don’t want to do is throw a false blanket of positivity on top of a basement full of unattractive thoughts and behaviors.
Our Lady of Weight Loss wants us to get in there, excavate, STOP ….. and make some mind-altering changes and create space for the positive life that we are craving!
Top 10 Appealing, Eye-Catching and Attractive Tips
on How to STOP Being Unattractive

1. STOP doing what is bad for you!
Keep in mind that determining what is “bad” is completely subjective. So dig deep and be honest. Make a list of at least ten things that you are currently doing that are bad for you – from sleeping too late, to eating too much, to dating bad boys! Or bad girls, for that matter. And then STOP doing those things!
2. STOP doing what you others think you ‘should’ do!
It’s one thing to be respectful and responsive to others, and it’s another to live your life the way others want you to or think that you should! You heretofore have permission to lead your own life, the way you want to. No should about it!
3. STOP being so darn nice!
You don’t have to be ‘that’ nice all the time. You don’t have to say ‘yes’ to requests that you want to say ‘no’ to. You don’t have to smile and make small talk when you are exhausted. You can even be cranky once in a while.
4. STOP moving so fast!
Would ya’ please SLOW down? You’re making me dizzy. I know that we all want to get from A to Z in a flash, but seriously, you’re missing the nuances and beauty of the journey. Take in a deep breath, and pay attention to each and every remarkable part of your journey. You don’t really want to rush through your life and miss it, do you?
5. STOP trying!
As Yoda from star wars says, “Do or do not … there is no try.” Every time you say that you are ‘trying’ to do something, you are essentially making certain that you have a way out. There’s no commitment in ‘trying.’ How many times have you said, “I’ll try to make it to your party.” -or- “I’ll try to stop by.” Did you?
6. STOP measuring your success by comparing yourself to others.
Human beings have a need to make order, rank things, and create points of reference, because it helps us to make choices and set priorities in life. However, comparing ourselves to others is a trap. It only leads to jealousy, bitterness and a sense of losing when someone else is succeeding. There is nothing to compare. We are unique individuals on our uniquely individual journey.
7. STOP trying to be someone else.
As Oscar Wilde so fittingly stated, “Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.” Let go of worrying about how you others perceive you, think about you, or what they might be saying about you. In order to be yourself, you have to tap into and go with your inner flow. Be open and honest. You’ve got absolutely nothing to hide; nothing to be ashamed of; nothing to be insecure about. Embrace your uniqueness.
8. STOP reacting to life.
Take in a deep breath and start responding to life and directing it! You have an opportunity to step back and take an objective look at your unattractive knee-jerk, automated reactions to things. Take in a deep breath, and create a space in which you can take action that is in alignment with your future.
9. STOP doing the same things the same way.
At one time or another, we’ve all experienced what it’s like to press the print button on our keyboards and have nothing happen. What do we do when the paper doesn’t print? We hit the print button again and again and again, to no avail. If your life isn’t working as well as it might, try finding a new point of view!
10. STOP denying yourself.
It’s okay to be selfish. If the word selfish holds a negative connotation for you, substitute the word ‘self-full.’ Take absolute care of yourself – eliminate stress, do things that bring you extreme pleasure, give yourself the things that you desire, and take time to just sit and recharge your batteries. Not only is it a good idea to be self-full, it’s a generous act. There’s no way you can effectively help another, if you are running on self-empty.
What is unattractive about you?

Weight Loss Wisdom: Stuck On Chocolate

ART Stop.jpgJanice Taylor, Beliefnet blogger, reporting in from Omega Institute of Holistic Studies in The Catskills, New York.
Our Lady of Weight Loss and I are leading a workshop entitled “Our Lady of Weight Loss EnLIGHTens.” (She always gets top billing!) There are about twenty fabulous people in Our Lady’s group.
Yesterday’s afternoon session centered around taking a good long and honest look at our self-limiting beliefs and excuses. In other words, we explored our very brilliant “Stay Fat Strategies.”
Think about it. If you have been ‘trying’ to lose weight, permanently remove the excess and have not succeeded, then you’ve implemented your very own ‘stay fat strategy,’ haven’t you? And it stands to reason that if you have figured out how to stay fat or stuck, then you are capable of turning your strategy around, doesn’t it?
As you know, it is Our Lady of Weight Loss’s mission to make weight loss fun. So we are most definitely having lots of laughs as we learn about ourselves and ‘let go’ of our excuses, ‘let go’ of what’s holding us back.
Here are some of the fun strategies from us at Omega to you (wherever you might be)!
Top Ten Strategies on How to Stay Fat!
1. Blame someone else; our mother, husband, kids … anyone else!
2. Wear stretchy clothes.
3. Never partake in activities that make you sweat.
4. Go grocery shopping when hungry, and be sure to bust open a bag of chips before you hit the check-out line (yes, do pay for them).
5. Declare Friday greasy pizza day.
6. Delude thyself … often.
7. Believe that food tastes better at midnight.
8. Eat out A LOT.
9. Drink alcohol when eating out.
10. Chocolate always and forever!
How are you keeping yourself stuck?
