I gained 10 lbs and feel better than ever.

Hey there lovelies,

It is a beautiful sunny windy rainy day here in Florida and I feel so blessed.

Yesterday, when I looked at the scale, I noticed I had gained 10 lbs. TEN POUNDS in the past 2 months. How did that happen? I don’t know, ’cause I feel fantastic. I’ve been doing yoga, bachata, swimming, running, you name it. I take sunset-filled walks and hot Himalayan salt baths.

In the past, this would have sent me into a nutty tailspin. I would have FREAKED out and gone Nazi on my ass. I’ll be honest, I still freaked out, but today, I can proudly say that I have cultivated the practice of making my life a fabulous whirlwind so that when something goes wrong and triggers my fear/anger/sadness I’m able to deal with it, drawing upon a full reserve of energy.

The trick is to wash away the darkness by filling yourself with light. You don’t try to extinguish the dark, do you? But you can crack open that window and let the light flood your room.  (If you like, it Tweet it!)

I got this idea from my hypnosis teacher and the term ‘crowding out’ which refers to filling up on good things, so that the bad things tend to naturally fall away. It’s brilliant. And it has been my saviour! If you want to know more, check out my video :)

And as always, please leave a comment below sharing one pleasurable thing you can add to your life to take yourself higher! 

Thank you for reading!

  1. That’s wonderful. ‘You cant extinguish the dark but flooding it with light’, that something similar to what Einstein said about God. On my side, i already know where my light is :-)

  2. Wonderful blog post, m’dear! Congratulations and thank you so much for sharing this! Good point. I am going to post it on my desktop to remind myself. Other ways to add more light to my life…. I have decided to finally go out and buy some little speakers so that I can sing and dance my way to happiness in any part of the house any day! That and write to at least one or two friends or family that I haven’t talked to in a while every week to reconnect and be reminded of the wonderful group of people who love me.

  3. Regarding your video: WONDERFUL! And perfect for me right now, as I am also in a transition period. You are brilliant and I am so thankful that you are sharing your knowledge with us. You are a beautiful person and by watching your videos and reading your blog posts, etc, you bring joy to my life. Hugs, Alia! Love you!
