I was working with a client recently who wanted to lose weight and she told me that she was often angry with herself because when she went out for a meal she always said, “I’m not going to have a pudding.” Then she went ahead and did just that. She said, “It happens every time.”
I explained to her that her deeper mind, (the part of her that is in charge of her body) only works from the pictures it receives. When she said “I’m not going to have a pudding,” she had to see herself having a pudding to make sense of that statement. The deeper mind acts on every picture it receives which means she always had the pudding.
I gave her these words to use instead. “I’m going to really enjoy my meal this evening. I’m going to have a great time and when I get home I’m going to feel really proud of myself.” She couldn’t wait to get back to me and tell me that it worked perfectly. Everything went as she’d planned and puddings didn’t even come in to it. .
Remember to talk about what you want instead of what you don’t want.
