Supernatural weight loss – the result of God’s intervention only, without human effort—rarely happens, but God often empowers people to successfully lose weight by helping them develop new attitudes and actions that lead to weight loss. So if you’re committed to taking good care of the body by working hard to lose weight, you can count on God and his messengers, the angels, to help you change how you eat and exercise. God’s power at work in your life through angels can bring you the results for which you’re hoping. Angels who specialize in healing—led by Archangel Raphael—are especially helpful angels to call on for help through prayer or meditation to encourage and strengthen you in your quest lose weight. Holistic Healing God sends healing angels (who work within the green light ray) to help people with health—be it physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, etc—to achieve a complete state of peaceful well-being. Angels will take a holistic approach to help you lose weight. They’ll show you how to get rid of excess weight in your thoughts and feelings that are contributing to the excess weight on your body. Once your mind and spirit are healed of the burdens that weigh them down (such as low self-esteem, fear, greed, loneliness, or bitterness), you can make the healthy diet and exercise choices you need to make for your body to heal. Motivation to Get Started The hardest part of the weight loss journey is usually getting started. Considering all the hard work ahead of you can be daunting, and even overwhelming. Angels can motivate you to begin by helping you envision how healthy you could be once you reach the weight that’s best for your body. They can help you see yourself as God sees you, so you can understand how valuable you are and how worthwhile it is for you to take good care of yourself by becoming physically fit. Wisdom to Set Fitness Goals Angels can give you the wisdom you need to set realistic and measurable goals that will help you gradually lose weight: from what foods to eat and how to control your portions to what types of exercise to do and when to schedule your workouts. If you regularly ask God and his angels to guide you, they can help you make the best decisions throughout your weight loss process. Energy to Exercise Exercising can be exhausting for a while until your body adapts to your new workout routines. Angels can send you fresh doses of energy to strengthen your body for physical exertion. One way angels do so is by redirecting the balance of energy within your body through your chakras, which are energy centers in different parts of your body that affect your overall health in different ways. The chakra that corresponds most directly to the process of transforming your body by losing weight is the sacral chakra, which is associated with angels who work in the purple light ray. Eating Differently Changing your eating habits can be difficult when you’re eating too much, regularly craving unhealthy foods, or eating for emotional comfort rather than for physical nutrition. If you're having trouble controlling your portion sizes, angels can deliver the self-control you need. Angels can empower you to break your food cravings by placing new thoughts in your mind. Those thoughts can give you a fresh perspective on those foods, so they won't be enticing to you any longer. Then angels can give you ideas for new ways that you can enjoy healthy foods in your diet. If you've got an unhealthy habit of eating for emotional reasons, angels can help you break that habit when you pray about your emotional needs and ask them to help you turn to God (rather than to food) to meet those needs. Resisting Temptation Just as your body needs physical strength to exercise, your soul needs spiritual strength to resist temptations that can derail your progress. It's okay to occasionally treat yourself to reasonable portions of foods that you don't usually eat (such as potato chips or chocolate ice cream), but it's important not to let occasional treats tempt you to go back to unhealthy eating on a regular basis. Angels can help you stay strong and aware when you eat, so you can decide intentionally how to eat rather than simply slide from eating treats back into an unhealthy diet overall. Angels can encourage you every step of the way throughout your weight loss journey. Anytime you need fresh doses of encouragement to keep working diligently, angels are only a prayer away!
