21 Spiritual Lessons for Surrendering your Weight ForeverA Course in Weight Loss

By Marianne Williamson

What is the connection between spirituality and weight loss? Best-selling author Marianne Williamson is about to answer that question for you in her ground-breaking new book, bringing you 21 spiritual lessons to help you surrender your weight forever. These lessons form an holistic paradigm for weight loss, addressing the spiritual, emotional, and psychological elements involved in what Williamson refers to as “conscious weight loss”.  If you are a food addict, a compulsive eater, or someone who for any reason sees food as the enemy, this book is for you.

A Course in Weight Loss addresses the true causal root of your weight-loss issues: a place within you where you have forgotten your divine perfection. This forgetfulness has confused not only your mind but also your body, making you reach for that which cannot sustain you . . . and reject that which does. As your mind reclaims its spiritual intelligence, your body will reclaim its natural intelligence as well.

The 21 lessons in this book will take you on a deep, sacred journey. One step at a time, you will learn to shift your relationship with yourself—and your body—from one of fear to one of love. And you will begin to integrate the various parts of yourself—mind, body, and spirit—to become, once again, and in all ways, the beautiful and peaceful person you were created to be.

As Williamson writes: “If your ‘weighty thinking’ does not change, then even if you lose weight you’ll retain an overwhelming subconscious urge to gain it back. It’s less important how quickly you lose weight, and more important how holistically you lose weight; you want your mind, your emotions, and your body to all ‘lose weight’”.

“Weight that disappears from your body but not from your soul is simply recycling outward for a while but is almost certain to return. It’s self-defeating, therefore, to struggle to drop excess weight unless you are also willing to drop the thought-forms that initially produced it and now hold it in place.”

“When it comes to your enjoyment of eating, your best days are not behind you but ahead of you!” So get ready to begin a new relationship with food . . . and with yourself.

What a great book to work on issues around weight and healthy eating. I have read my share of diet books in my life and none have given long term effects. Whether this book is any different will need to be proved over time, but at least I can say this book takes you on a spiritual journey past struggling with yourself to lose weight.

Marianne Williamson is a wonderful author. Her writing flows and uplifts as she challenges the reader to move beyond diet and willpower and give problems over to a higher source. The book gives 21 steps to work on weight loss in a truly profound and spiritual way.

The spiritual insights gained from the book will need to go in hand with following up on the assignments given, such as building an altar, invoking the real you, building a relationship with good food and much more.

I am looking forward to putting it to the test!
