If winter hibernation tends to pack on the pounds, take heart. There are some simple steps you can take this winter to prevent yourself from gaining weight. Even though it’s a “natural” process to put on weight during the winter, it’s not all that pleasant. So check out these simple steps to winter weight loss magic:

>> WEAR RED: The color red is pure fire energy and it will literally melt fat. Add red to your wardrobe. For great weight loss while you sleep, wear red bicycle pants to bed (if you have weight around your belly and butt) or red pajamas. If you start to get too hot or a racing pulse, just wear red during the day.

>> DOWSE: You can use your pendulum to get rid of fat by swinging it clockwise to remove the negative thought forms from your body that cause fat. Keep swinging until it stops. For more details, check out Polly Cady’s dowsing audio at http://www.shamanschool.com/experts/polly.html.

>> BLESS YOUR FOOD: Before you put anything in your mouth, bless it. Thank the beings who have made your food possible, and ask that the food to be raised to its highest vibration. Ask that your body retain only what is necessary for you to stay at your ideal weight. You can even hire an angel to increase the power of your intention!

>> FIND OUT: Ask yourself what is causing you to hold onto your fat or gain weight. You might write “What am I holding onto that is causing weight gain?” with your dominant hand, and answer with your other hand. The answers are usually quite interesting. Once you address the issues at hand, you’ll have an easier time shedding weight.

>> USE HERBS: Since weight is a very physical manifestation, you might need some physical herbs to help you lose weight. Simplexity’s (formerly Cell Tech) Naturalight is one of the easiest and safest formulas. Order online at Prosperity Abounds.

When working with weight loss, just remember the law of “as above, so below.” Your physical weight is usually tied to your emotional and mental baggage. Shed one and you’ll lose the other. You can either start at the physical end, or at the mental and emotional end. Enjoy the journey!
