Have you ever thought about dreams that you have during the night? If we are to assume that in a dream the inner mind is communicating with the conscious mind, what is the language it's using? Does it yell out, "Hey, listen to me for a second, I've got something important to discuss with you."
Maybe yours does but mine doesn't. First of all it would just kind of be reporting in, second, it would use images and feelings. Very rarely words. Images and feelings is the language of the inner mind most of the time.
What this article is focusing on is using this language in reverse. For instance if we were to imagine ourselves 20 lbs lighter, what would we look like? How would our clothes fit? You have to use your imagination to do this, let it run wild. Focus on the details, what clothing would fit and how would it fit, and how would it feel to achieve this.
Now we're talking the language that the inner mind understands. It's starting to get the blueprint down. And you know what? If it has an objection or thinking that runs against the grain on this "new you," it will let you know. In a way that is just right for you.
Let's take an example. You see/feel yourself 20 lbs lighter in the months ahead. You focus on this and really get into it.
By doing this questions will arise. How do I do this? With a plan.
What plan? One that is safe and right for you. You will find it.
Now if my doctor says I'm able to join an exercise program, which one? One that you will enjoy. Which one is that?
Your inner mind is getting into the picture now, it may suggest something that you haven't done in a long time. The first thought that pops up may be: "oh that's silly, I can't do that at my age". Oh yea, who says?
Now you're getting the picture, and your inner mind is getting the picture and together you will discover new ways, exciting ways to stay on your diet, to eat healthy, to have fun exercising, it's endless. And it all started with your imagination.
You know there's a lot of nice, wonderful things in life that started in someone's imagination... maybe in your imagination.
