Today I want to talk to you about the definition for true power, which is the title of my next book, The Beauty Detox Power (which by the way, is launching tomorrow!!) When most of us think about trying to control or to create the body, the health, the weight that we want, most of us are just thinking about the calories that are on our fork, or the way that we’re working out.
Power, true power, involves aligning all parts of your being. It means aligning your words, your thoughts, your beliefs, and your actions such as how you’re eating. This becomes a very powerful way to create the body and the health, everything that you want without struggle.
You may think, how can my thoughts, my mind really influence my weight the way that my food can?
I want to delve into this discussion, but I want to read you this really interesting study which is on page 39 in the section called, Why Attacking Fat Backfires. Basically it was this study conducted out of Harvard where they took a group of cleaning women and divided them in half and told half the group that the exercise that they were doing from just their normal work, was satisfying the Surgeon General’s recommendations and it was so great for them. The other half of the group wasn’t told that information. Nothing else changed. Their food habits, how they were working, nothing else changed except for being given this information. After four weeks, they measured both groups and they found an actual decrease in weight, blood pressure, body fat, waist to hip ratio, and body mass index compared to the control group. In other words, their thoughts changed their bodies.
What I’m going to be teaching you and sharing with you in The Beauty Detox Power is how you can create this alignment and how your emotions and your thoughts have to really support your beliefs and how you’re eating. This in turn also affects gut health and digestion.
In the beginning of the book, which is right here the title page, this is a … The book is so personal, even the photographs. This is a picture on a beach in Portugal from last summer. I just remember being out there and feeling really connected to the nature and the sun and the ocean and the wind. It just felt like the most phenomenal, free sunset ever.
Here at the very beginning of the book I define True Power, which I’ll read to you, “Arises from the alignment between your thoughts, core beliefs, words, and actions. Comes from within. Not from controlling or trying to grasp at anything outside of you or ego based. Allows you to become extraordinarily powerful and able to shape the body and the life you want. Enables you to surpass perceived limitations.”
That’s what this is really all about, just creating that alignment in your life to accomplish your goals and your dreams, both on a physical level and also in your personal and your professional dreams. That’s what that power is all about. It actually SIMPLIFIES your life when you learn how to align all parts of your being, and makes it easier for you to maintain your weight and health. You just have to tune into the specific tips, tools and perspectives I share with you…and it will change your life forever.
I can’t wait for you to get this book in your hands as well and we can talk further about some of this information. It’s something that has helped me personally a lot and it’s something that I see just a tremendous need for in the world right now. We can all share in it and support one another.
Thank you so much. I can’t wait to see you back here soon.
