Close Kept Secrets to Weight Loss Lesson #10

By Tami Close

WOW!! Here we are on lesson #10. Hasn't it been an amazing journey over these two months? What you are discovering is all the secrets to your weight loss are within you. You"ve always had the power within you to lose it; you just needed to discover that you hold that power. As women we feel we need to manage the Universe and that's a huge responsibility. When this happens, we take care of everyone's needs first and then leave us to the last and lose our power. We find we run on empty most of the time and then wonder why we struggle with weight. Who are we really mad at? Us!

When I did some introspection work when I got sick years ago, I was really mad at me. I was struggling with my marriage and I kept blaming my husband. Then God kept sending me messages, "Tami, this is about you and learning about you." I was having some heart to heart conversations with God telling Him that it wasn't about me"it was my husband. I felt like a little kid with my fingers in my ears telling God, "Neener, Neener, Neener. You're not the boss of me! And then running away. God, in His gentle, loving way kept insisting that I needed to work on myself. I finally listened! I can be pretty stubborn. Can you relate to this? Then I had the AHA moment. I was giving away my power by having to please others. WOW! What a revelation! Whenever I have a moment where my power wants to sneak out, I just get a rope out and lasso it and shout, "Oh, no you don't! You come on back to momma!

I just recently watched The Divine Secrets of the Ya Ya's for the second time. This movie depicts what can manifest when we hold on to our stuff and give away our power. It affects us and those around with whom we come in contact for generations. This movie also demonstrates the power of sisterhood and provides a lot of humor and bonding that can take place.. With this in mind, we're going to do a little Ya Ya lesson. Ready Ya Ya's?? I can't hear you. Are you ready? Shout it from every cell in your body. "I am ready to release my stuff and have some fun." Remember, clothing is optional! After all, you're in the comfort of your own home, embrace your body and tell it that you love it.

Before we begin, I need to explain something about chakras. They are spinning circles of energy in your body and govern the endocrine system. With this in mind, they bring your hormones and thus your emotions into balance. We're going to be working with one particular chakra"your power chakra.

Take a deep breath in and feel the energy surrounding you as you realize the full power within. Put one hand on your solar plexus, which is located in the area between the belly button and the rib cage. While rubbing your hand counterclockwise over the solar plexus, I want you to do Rapid Eye moving your eyes left to right. Find two points on the wall so you can move your eyes from left to right. Now start up at the ceiling moving the eyes in a zig zag format all the way down to the floor. While moving your eyes, repeat after me: I release the pain, I release the trauma, I release the guilt, I release the anger, I release the sadness, I release all the negative emotions past, present and future. How did that feel?

We're going to activate your POWER NOW!! While rubbing your hand clockwise over the solar plexus, continue with the Rapid Eye movements as above and repeat after me: I have my power, I retain my power, I love my power, I am a powerful child of God, I love me forever. How did that feel?

Okay, now we're going to have some fun. Now that we have our power back, let's do a Ya Ya Power Ceremony. Visualize you, me and everyone who you want to be in a circle of light underneath the stars late at night. The moon is bright and illuminating its full potential. We are going to moon".oopps I mean we are the moon illuminating our full potential. Some day I'll have to tell you about my mooning experiences.

We breathe in our power! We're wearing our slinky dresses and swaying our hands up in the air. Darn, we look good! Someone starts drumming and we dance to the beat of the drum while chanting the power song, I've Got Da Power and You Don't! Keep chanting first softly and then louder and louder until you're screaming it from the depths of your soul. We are the Ya Ya's and true Ya Ya's always retain their power. It is done now and forever.

What a ceremony! Thank you for joining me in the Power Ceremony. God wants us to keep our power. It's His job to manage the Universe so you don't have to.

Keep up the GREAT work. You are AWESOME!

Love and hugs,
