A Chance for New Beginnings

Written by 
Most people who are Christians will be celebrating Easter this coming Sunday. Regardless of your religious affiliation I'd like to share a few thoughts on some spiritual aspects of the holiday and how it may relate to your own physical change while losing weight.
There is a term called transmutation, meaning, "the action of changing or the state of being changed into another form." Charles Fillmore wrote in the Revealing Word that transmutation is "a lifting up of mind and body, from material aspect to spiritual character." This might be compared to Jesus' appearance after his resurrection to his disciples who then "opened their minds to the scripture." In other words they opened their minds to a higher Truth, and saw what they had not seen before.
We can apply this same type of thinking into our own challenges while losing our weight. A good example could be a person who is a stress/emotional eater. People really can change dieting obstacles by taking on a different view of their lives and challenges from a different perspective. What I'm saying here is nothing new, although many people simply neglect or refuse to see life's obstacles from a different viewpoint. Rev. Dale Worley states that hardships can actually become breakthroughs. Bad endings can become new beginnings.  What you might think as the very worst thing that has happened to you can turn into the best thing that could have happened. Many other motivational speakers repeat these same mantras. It's all about stepping back and really examining the situation from a different viewpoint and making any needed changes.
Dieting is a big hurdle for just about anyone and it's harder for those who use food to deal with life's problems. For those who keep repeating the same process over and over, it might seem like it can never change. But if you look at your challenges from that different angle, and optimistically tackle those mistakes head on, you can ultimately reverse your unhealthy habits and become a happier and healthy person. 
You have to make peace with food. You have to decide to embrace and accept healthier changes from the inside out. The essence for this "transmutation" is found deep within you. It's there. You just have to see how any condition of the mind, body and spirit can be lifted up and made into something better. You have to reframe how you think about things.
As an example, I was an emotional/stress eater myself. I relied on food to get me through all my tough patches in life. Food might have made me feel better for a short time but ultimately it kept me overweight and unhappy about myself, chipping away at my self-esteem. Once I could honestly listen to my true feelings and my own personal truth about issues, then I could take the necessary steps to address the needs that I was not getting met.
Understanding your feelings is the gateway into change. (For more specific help on this, ask for the handout on the Feelings List in your clinic.)
Spring is like the beginning of a new year, another new beginning, a transmutation! If you didn't quite get things right in January, spring is another chance for beginnings. 
"Your life does not get better by chance. It gets better by change." -Jim Rohn
