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. 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.

  2. 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).

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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….
