Do you see a beautiful woman (or man) with a beautiful body which has the proportions you desire?
Or do you see a “fat” person, with a “fat” body which is ugly?
What Good is a Mirror, Really? If You Have Unwanted Weight, That Is
If you have unwanted weight, I’ll bet that most of the time it’s the later. I know; I’ve been there too.
So my knowledge of quantum physics leads me to ask you this very important question: “Why do you look in the mirror?”
Wait a Minute? Doesn’t a Mirror Just Reflect “The Way Things Really Are”?
If you are reading my blog, you already know that there is no such thing as subjective reality. There is no such thing as “the way things are.” You create the way things are with your observations (and, more importantly, your expectations – which are derived from your beliefs). Your beliefs create expectations, which you then use to command the sub-atomic particles of the universe to form a “fat” and “ugly” body when you look in the mirror!
Does that sound unreal? Crazy? I’ll grant you that. But, crazy as it sounds, what I just wrote is actually how our universe works! It is not science-fiction, nor is it some philosophy that may or may not apply to you.
You are creating your universe (and your body) each moment of every single day. In the manner I just described. You couldn’t stop doing it if you tried!
So, if looking in the mirror continually produces a “fat” and/or “ugly” body – stop doing it! Seriously. Just stop.
What Does a Doctor Tell You About Doing Something That Hurts? Until It’s “Fixed” – Stop Doing It!
In fact, if you feel bad about your unwanted weight, don’t ever look in the mirror again unless you truly are feeling good about your body (and yourself) in that moment.
And if you accidentally fall back into old habits, and catch yourself looking in the mirror and seeing a “fat” and “ugly” person, stop what you’re doing and look away. Then remind yourself that your outer world (the reality you’re seeing) is merely a reflection of your inner world (the way you’re feeling).
And give yourself a break, realizing that you must have been thinking some old thought patterns (as we all do from time to time) before you looked in the mirror. You were only seeing, after all, what you were feeling.
Until your new reality is “I am thin” do not use a mirror to “confirm” how you look – because you won’t see “thin”. There is no way around this, so just don’t do it.
And make sure you are reading (or re-reading) Why Quantum Physicists Don’t Get Fat to build your new, “I am thin” beliefs. Before long you will be able to look in that mirror and love what you see! I guarantee it.
