Weight Loss

Anonymous,  NSW, Australia

Since regularly attending Universal Medicine events my body has gone through the following changes:

My weight has gone from 91.5kg to 69.5kg, or from a BMI of 27 to 21. The first 10kg through dieting (I was in a hurry and decided off my own bat to do something), the next 12kg happened by themselves.

I drank almost daily until five years ago and have never had any alcohol since. The interesting thing is that I don’t miss alcohol at all.

I drank my last decaf coffee two years ago because drinking a cup was like being kicked and I was unpleasantly racy for two hours afterwards. I love the taste of coffee but even decaf (let alone caffeinated) coffee is no fun.

The upside is that I have no problem working eight hours a day, six days a week, sometimes longer, and I don’t fade at all after lunch and am only pleasantly tired in the evening.

My blood pressure has gone from 125 to 109 and sometimes as low as 98, which is pretty good for a male aged 53. I had elevated cholesterol 10 years ago and my cholesterol is now deep in the healthy zone.

I regularly took multi vitamin pills in the past but gradually reduced it to one a week, one a fortnight, one a month and now no pills at all. When I took a vitamin pill during a very stressful time two years ago my urine turned a very bright orange which in the past only happened when I took too many vitamin pills, so I didn’t take any more.

  1. It’s amazing the fastness in which our body regenerates and recovers its natural shape and balance, when we remove what intoxicates it and lovingly treat it. This is simply common sense and something very available to everyone, that creates a healthy foundation in our life.

  2. In a world where lifestyle choices are pushing up rates of illness and disease, and where it’s proven that diets don’t work (in fact the majority of people put on more weight than before they started the diet) then this example is absolute gold. It shows the rock solid outcomes from the presentations offered by Universal Medicine for those who commit to loving themselves and their body – and it’s pretty simple compared to what’s on offer out there like complicated diets based on willpower, or rah-rah motivation.

  3. I have to admit since attending Universal Medicine workshops and without exercising, my weight had dropped off on its own accord. I used to be a gym junkie and following a stop moment, I couldn’t exercise anymore.

    My body is constantly changing, Now my body has gone the other way and I have gained more weight. For me it is learning to love my body no matter what is going on for it and still be able to look in the mirror.

    A message came through my awareness the other day, ‘love me not my body’. Which for me, has a double meaning. It doesn’t mean I ignore the body, (I used to constantly shaped it), so I could love me more and be loved. When I can love myself no matter what shape it is.
    The other meaning is for a previous partner who used to remind me that I was gaining weight, and I would work harder to shape it. For that person, it is to love ME and not my body, (no matter what shape it is going through).

  4. I met someone many years ago who said to me that drinking coffee for her was like taking drug because it made her go crazy. And I thought she was crazy for saying that. I also met quite a few people who say coffee helps them to keep going therefore it is good for them. Different opinions, but one thing for certain is that it does something to our body and changes our way of being.

  5. When we make life about self-love the things we have tried to achieve previously, like weight loss, may just come naturally. That’s how it happened for me after attending Universal Medicine workshops, I was previously locked into a mentality of watching what I ate, exercising to reduce the possibility of gaining weight (especially if I overate). It was a constant surveillance of diet and weight, and a focus on a certain body image. That all fell away when I became more in tune with my body and honouring of how I felt, I lost weight and dropped two dress sizes but it actually didn’t mean what it used to, I didn’t need the weight loss or a certain body image anymore because my purpose for myself was simply to be self loving.

  6. For me the Sacred Healing modalities have been absolutely GOLD in removing unwanted and unloving energies from my body. No trying, no pushing. The healing enabled me to let go of many things I and my body had taken on to the point that I stopped drinking alcohol without even realising!!!! Something I never thought would ever of happened in my life, especially in being labelled at one point of my life as an alcoholic. That along with many other things. The result is my body feels so much lighter, clearer and stronger. I have a deeper relationship with myself and others, more vitality and joy and this continues to unfold … there is no peak, just a forever deepening which is pretty amazing, and I am only at the tip of the iceberg. We seriously have so much to learn and put into place for our whole well-being when it comes to energy and the choices that we make and where our choices come from.

  7. Weight loss without trying is something that happened to me too. After being overweight for a few years and failing to lose weight with diets, it just fell away when I stopped eating gluten. I stopped because I could no longer deny that it did not agree with me. More fell away when I naturally stopped eating dairy, it just disappeared from my diet without any conscious decision. This was surprising in both cases as I had grown up eating both. It was a good lesson to me to not assume that foods are okay and to keep refining what I eat based on what my body needs.

  8. When we live honoring the truth of our bodies and what it is always communicating to us we are guided to live in a way that supports us to live with vitality, maximising our day by living the true potential of who we are and our true body shape is then generally naturally a reflection of this.

    1. Carola, your comments ring truth, ‘honouring our body… we are guided to live in a way that supports us to live’. Such pearls of wisdom.

  9. These are just the minor changes that happen as we let go of the abusive energy we have allowed in the body fore aeons. For the energetic disorders in our body are far deeper and far more painful than any physical symptom can manifest.

  10. Like you anonymous I lost weight when I stopped drinking alcohol. But I realised that it was not just the sugar hit from the alcohol I wanted but also the associated impairment of my faculties meant I let other things in that if I was sober I would not have – such as pigging out on food or having a drink instead of going for a walk. There are many other examples I could give too….

  11. Universal Medicine never tells us to change our life. Only what is presented makes so much sense and leaves the space open for us to experiment with changing our lives and coming to the answers and results ourselves.

  12. When we give ourselves space to feel how our body reacts or responds to certain foods, activities, drinks etc. without being attached to the outcome it’s easy to make decisions that honour our body more.

  13. Making a choice to give up something that is addictive and harming to our bodies such as coffee, alcohol and sugar for that matter, is a step on the ladder of evolution. Plus our bodies will love us for it.

  14. A testament to The Way of The Livingness. Simple. Not a big deal – its normal.! HOWEVER, how many can permanently give up alcohol, coffee etc? All that is out there and it does not work. Universal Medicine has the answers.

  15. When we practice being present and observing life more and create space of us making choices, we naturally expand.. The whole trying disappears. Simply by listening to who we are and what we feel.

  16. When the body is treated with respect and love, it responds. Weight changes can happen, clearer skin can happen, vitality can return. All of these changes are rooted in the honouring of the body, what we eat, how we move, and how we see ourselves. Universal Medicine has been central in supporting me to understand this.

    1. I agree Heather as all too often we come from a lack and want to fix something instead of from a foundation of love and respect and of course self-care.

      1. Treating the body with love, respect and honouring is fundamental in building a strong foundation of love and care for our bodies.

  17. Being more body aware has certainly supported my weight, I was bloated and exhausted, becoming more interested and aware of self care has deeply changed how my body feels and looks.

    1. What I found also was that once I stopped digesting things that were harming to my body it was easier to see what didn’t belong because my body wasn’t weighed down by the ailments I had just taken as normal for so long.

      1. True, I am noticing this also in how I eat, so important to really feel how food feels in the body and from there it is more simple to let go of what does not support us.

  18. When we understand the body from an energetic point, it becomes much easier to give up alcohol, coffee and foods that cause us to bloat and become lethargic. It is not that we don’t see the symptoms, it is just that we don’t put it all together in a way that makes sense. Once we start to listen to the body, alcohol no longer has the appeal it once had and as you say Anon, you can feel the raciness in the body for several hours after a cup of coffee and there comes a time when you can feel it is no longer worth it.

  19. I few women and I were talking about dieting today and how most the time it follows with a yo-yoing from losing weight to putting it back on… but that is because it isn’t based on a lifestyle change that is permanent, it is usually based on wanting to fix something and look good and coming from pictures, instead of making a change from the whole body. As you found Anonymous, once you feel something is not right in your body, it’s super simple.. you don’t have it again. No trying, no pushing required.

  20. This is a great reminder that when I deal with the underlying energetic cause (as Universal Medicine presents) and address my feelings, those activities, behaviours and foods/drinks that don’t agree with me become unpalatable, they simply drop away without effort.

  21. It is quite simple really and all of what happens in the blog can come through living an increased awareness.

  22. One really significant change that happened in my life when meeting Universal Medicine and attending the Sacred Esoteric Healing courses, was that I dropped alcohol really quickly and without even noticing. This was actually really HUGE for someone that was brought up with alcohol being a part of their life and it got so bad that someone who I considered to be a serious alcoholic said they were worried about how much I was drinking!!!! Yet there have been so many positive and truly beautiful changes happening in my life because of knowing Universal Medicine and starting to live the way of the livingness (how we live matters knowing that every choice we make has an impact on our life and those around us) that this quite huge and significant change went under the radar of truly registering that it happened .. it was that quick and natural. I find this both amazing and incredible. Definitely one to appreciate.

  23. People that work in the health profession may be wondering how you achieved all those changes to your body and lifestyle, as weight and alcohol consumption, etc, are areas that have a huge impact on health and wellbeing. And, the difference for students of Universal Medicine is that changes to lifestyle and health are not based on willpower or struggle, such as it usually is with weight loss diets for example, but achieved through simple body awareness, self care, and self love.

  24. Inspired and supported by the presentations of Universal Medicine I too have lost a lot of weight but to me that wasn’t the end goal but a wonderful bonus. The reason I began to change the way I lived, including what I ate, was that my body had been suffering needlessly as a result of the inconsiderate way I had treated it for such a long time. These days, from choosing to take deep care of myself my quality of life is now amazing and at 68 my long suffering body is feeling more vital and alive than it has ever done.

  25. The best kind of weight loss is done without any effort at all. This is how it happened for me too once I stopped eating gluten. True choices that come from your body will naturally restore health and vitality.

    1. Yes, eating well and not needing the protection (or the feeling of protection) that extra weight gives and the weight can just go.

  26. These are amazing changes, complete opposite to what seems to be happening to many people all over the world. And if these are the result of the choices being made as inspired by Universal Medicine, it seems like a good idea to at least have a listen to what they have to say and give it a go.

  27. I drank almost daily before Universal Medicine, in fact I’m not even certain if there were any days that I would go without a drink and yet now I would never even consider having a glass of wine because I know how it would leave me feeling.

  28. It is amazing to experience the positive changes that naturally occur to our body when we begin to live in honor of and guided by what our body tells us. The more we live in connection to what is true, the more our body is restored to reflect its true and natural vitality.

  29. Choosing to no longer consume substances that are not conducive for our body is the greatest way to support our body. To identify those things that are not conducive is by trial and error and trying for oneself what works for others. I did this and my health and wellbeing is completely different to what it was before.

    1. Yes jstewart51, when we tune in and listen to our body it isn’t hard to feel what works for it and what doesn’t. It just requires a bit of honesty and a few home truths!

  30. When we turn our attention inwardly instead of outwardly and with that become to honour that what lives within, our bodies will naturally respond and become very communicative in what it likes or not.

  31. When our movements reflect the essence of who we are, our bodies go through a metamorphosis that reflects our natural body shape; we realize then that there is no longer an attachment to look a specific way as there is a deeper level of self- acceptance as instruments of God’s work.

  32. Weight like water seems to adjust to it natural level when we don’t obstruct our body with food and drinks.
    I know this from my own experience.

  33. This is so wonderful and so clear as to the power we have in our own hands if we make the choice, thank you for sharing.

  34. Living from how we feel and being honest and open to what is being shared with us constantly allows us to live from our bodies and not against them. it is in this union of connection we find true vitality, love and support and life becomes more about feeling and not finding the next quick fix.

  35. Developing our relationship with self allows us to be honest about the consequences of what we ingest through all our senses, for in truth when we live from our essence there is no need of stimulation or dulling as we understand that life evolves around the awareness within.
