I read a couple of quotes this morning. The first being a quote by Albert Einstein who said “I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination. Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.”
Think about this, if visualization is one of the keys to creating anything we desire, and visualization begins with the imagination then can we not create anything? We can imagine anything by tapping into all the visual images stored in our mind to create the perfect picture, a very real picture of anything we desire. We can create anything that we can imagine.
Deepak Chopra said “In order to change the printout of the body, we must learn to rewrite the software of the mind.”
Michael Thurmond is probably one of the most recognized trainers in the country. He is the creator of the 6 week body make over. One of the physical training methods he uses most is resistance training.
Resistance bands are relatively inexpensive very effective tools in the world of core muscle definition. Basically a giant rubber band in a world of Bow flexes, and other high end equipment that you can build your home gym around.
I’m not a fitness expert, but I have been told that the basic concept of building muscle definition starts with breaking down the tissue, or causing injury, and then the recovery process begins. I guess that’s where the no pain, no gain expression comes from. In my mind the very thought of this is beyond comprehension.
However, I was watching an infomercial early one morning, and I really began to grasp the concept of resistance bands, and why they are such an effective training tool. See resistance bands, giant rubber bands when used correctly allow you to connect using your mind to the core muscle you are looking to define. I believe one of the reasons Michael Thurmond is such an effective trainer is because he is an expert in the mind body connection, by using a resistance band as a tool he can actually teach people to use their minds to zero in on the core muscle group to maximize their results in a very short period of time without tremendous discomfort.
Visualization once again is the key to change, only in this example it’s applying your attention to change within the body. In order to change the printout of the body, we must learn to rewrite the software of the mind. The mind body connection is key in your desire to live in the perfect body now.
Another validation would be hypnosis; there are now very effective audio materials that professional hypnotists have made available in mp3 format for people to overcome just about any challenge, such as smoking, and eating disorders, the science behind hypnosis which I find amazing is that they are actually applying technique to re programming the brain, or rewriting the software of the mind. Literally creating a new belief in your mind, and once the belief is reprogrammed it becomes your reality. The change in your belief becomes your result.
Mind body connection. No matter what physical changes have occurred in your body they can be reversed. I have a friend who lost I think it was somewhere around 30 pounds a few years back, and remarkably enough she did this by writing her ideal weight, or at least what she wanted to weigh on index cards, and she put them in various places around her house, now the funny thing is all of the cards were turned over except the one on the fridge, but it didn’t matter because all they said was a number, 128, she didn’t have to see it because she didn’t see the card, she saw the number in her mind, the card only served to remind her of her goal. To this day she says that was the easiest thing she ever did. She never focused on what she had to do to get there, she just knew she would, and the cards served the purpose of keeping that goal in the forethought of her mind.
The one thing you have to know is there is always the beautiful body within, it never goes anywhere, it’s always there waiting.
One way to reconnect with that body is based on the same theory as resistance bands, the ability to mentally feel that sculpture, to think inward instead of outward, because therein lies the secret to uncovering what is already there.
Remember we approach everything from the inside out, not the other way around, everything on the outside, is outside influence, and it serves very little purpose in us creating our desires.
Even though my friends cards were on the outside, her belief was on the inside and the only purpose, just like a vision board that they served was as a reminder of what she needed to focus her mind or attention on.
Weight loss is a trillion dollar a year industry, but yet time and time again we hear testimonials that people tried everything and nothing worked. Finally something came along that did, I personally believe the only thing that really changed was their belief for some reason they believed more in the results that could be achieved with one product over another, not that it was really more effective, or that it really did anything more than another, but the sales pitch was right, the psychology was well written and their belief based on actually some very crafty wording, it was the change in their belief that actually created the results.
Body sculpting, or body revisualization is a technique that works along the lines as resistance bands, body sculpting is learning to effectively feel the inner body you desire, if you can relax and clear your mind you can do body sculpting exercises. Body sculpting is simply the ability to feel what lies behind the surface of what is to be able to think inwardly and sculpt or trace the lines of that which you desire. To use your imagination to mentally trace the size and shape of your body. When you begin the process of doing this you are training your mind to see yourself in this way, as a result your beliefs will become altered, and other habits that have perhaps resulted in a change that is less than what you desire will become altered as well. The more you do this the easier it becomes, you are simply feeling it real.
Amazingly enough this can actually work outwardly as well, if you want to grow the size of your body you can trace or sculpt beyond the surface of what is.
Our minds are the most wondrous things in the universe, yet for hundreds of years we have become content with using a very small portion our minds to guide us through the process of daily living, and have chosen to ignore our infinite human potential that each of us possess.
The one thing that above all else you have to come to terms with is that you can have anything and everything you desire, an infinite list of change and growth is achievable once you accept your potential and commit to using more of it to change that which is less than you desire
