Weight Loss through the Law of Attraction with Rebbie Straubing

My college friend, Rebbie Straubing, who I interviewed earlier this year in The Yoga of Alignment-An Interview with Rebbie Straubing, has created a unique weight loss system using the Law of Attraction. She is offering a Weight Loss Workshop starting 1/11/11. I’m always so impressed with the unique way Rebbie’s mind works, and I’m sure from the promotional materials that I have seen that this is an opportunity to really change deep unconscious patterns of eating, and lose weight without feeling you are on yet another diet. In fact, I was so impressed by what I saw, I asked her to set up an affiliate program so I could offer her workshop to you.

To quote her materials:

Here’s what you get:

The Weight Drop Workshop ebook containing all the visualization exercises (not available elsewhere.)
Recorded commentaries on each of 5 modules.
Live Q & A Telephone Workshops. (Get the recordings if you can’t attend.)
Hot Seat calls. (You can have a personal coaching session on the workshop material while the group listens in.)
Module 1: Getting in the Groove. This is where you get the foundation for working with the visualizations.
Module 2: The Knower. This is where you gain access to your inner guidance and begin shifting your appetite and hunger levels almost instantly.
Module 3: Metabolism. Use your mind to jump start your metabolism and decrease your appetite.  Here you learn to use your mind to act like diet pills without any of the side effects of the chemicals.
Module 4: Food, Eating & Satisfaction. Improve all other aspects of you life as you bring your eating into alignment.  In this session  your whole life gets more satisfying while at the same time, food becomes less important to you.
Module 5: Body Form. Use your mind to bring your thin self out from all that outer padding.  This is a lot of fun.
Materials are posted on Tuesdays. Login to the members area to access the visualizations.
Live calls on Fridays (Time to be announced.) If you cannot make the live calls, you can send in your questions and hear the answers on the recordings.

I hope you will find this helpful. I have been receiving Rebbie’s JHE sessions (you can learn about those in the older post, The Yoga of Alignment-An Interview with Rebbie Straubing) for some time and feel they are very helpful.

From The Law of Attraction to Zero Limits

I have written before about Joe Vitale’s and Hew Len’s book, Zero Limits: The Secret Hawaiian System for Wealth, Health, Peace, and More. (if you missed these posts please see Psychologist Cures the Criminally Insane with Hoʻoponopono and Ho’oponopono & Tapping for Healing & Energy Clearing). Like many of you, I spent a number of years listening to materials about the Law of Attraction. Certainly there is truth in the idea that cultivating a more positive vibration in your body and mind can help attract a more positive experience of life. But, probably, also like many of you, there are circumstances and events in my life over which I seem to have no control.

From my experience it seems that there is a higher power than my human mind, an intelligence far beyond the scope of the mind, that is orchestrating the unfolding of my life.  This intelligence isn’t separate from my mind, it is in truth what I am, but the mind arises from it, and seems to operate best when it is in service to it.  At a certain point I dedicated my life to this intelligence, this Truth, this Love, and put aside thoughts of the Law of Attraction. I could see that on a certain level it did operate, but on another level something greater was at play. I couldn’t reconcile these two realities very well, so just did not try to. When I read Zero Limits, I found several pages which Joe Vitale wrote that quite clearly, at least to my mind, showed the relationship between these seemingly opposing views of reality. I would like to quote from pages 192 and 193 of Zero Limits. If you have found that the Law of Attraction is just not quite a complete explanation of the intricacies of your life, maybe Joe Vitale’s view of stages of awakening will be of help.

“…by saying ‘I love you” and the other statements (I’m sorry, Please forgive me, I love you, Thank you), I’ve been led to a deeper awareness, what some might call an awakening, maybe even enlightenment itself. I came to understand there are at least three stages to this awakening, and they’re almost a map of life’s spiritual journey. They are:

  • You’re a victim. We are virtually all born feeling we are powerless. Most of us stay that way. We think the world is out to get us: the government, the neighbors, the society, the bad guys in whatever form they seem to take. We don’t feel we have any influence. We’re the effect of the rest of the world’s cause. We gripe, complain, protest, and gather in groups to fight those in charge of us. Except for a party now and then, life, in general, sucks.
  • You’re in control. At some point you see a life-changing movie, like The Secret, or you read a book, such as The Attraction Factor or The Magic of Believing, and you wake up to your own power. You realize the power of setting intentions. You realize the power you have to visualize what you want, take action, and achieve it. You begin to experience some magic. You start to experience some cool results. Life, in general, begins to look pretty good.
  • You’re awakening. At some point after stage two, you begin to realize your intentions are limitations. You begin to see that with all your new found power, you’re still not able to control everything. You begin to realize that when you surrender to a greater power, miracles tend to happen. You begin to let go and trust. You begin to practice, moment by moment, awareness of your connection with the Divine. You begin to recognize inspiration when it comes to you, and you act on it. You realize you have choice, but not control of your life. You realize the greatest thing you can do is agree to each moment. In this stage, miracles happen, and they constantly astonish you as they do. You live, in general, in a constant state of amazement, wonder and gratitude. ” (Joe Vitale, Zero Limits, pages 192-193)

I found this simple outline of stages of growth very much in tune with my experience. I was delighted to see that someone, whom many closely associate with the law of attraction, was moving beyond those ideas, not because they are wrong, but because life is just more complex than we first realized. I applaud his discovery, and hope many of his followers will have the same experiences.

We need miracles in this world. We have enormous problems to solve if we are to continue as a species. We need to allow the Divine to inspire us, to stop and surrender to what is, letting go of resistance (which naturally creates a more positive vibration in your being). And waiting, if only for a moment, and allowing the Divinity that we are to inspire the next action.

Are you ready to live fully in each moment, not knowing what the next moment will be, but open to the Divine inspiration that is your deepest source of manifestation?

To explore these ideas further I recommend:

  • Zero Limits Seminar. Joe Vitale And Dr. Hew Len Present Worlds First Zero Limits Seminar On Audios And Transcripts Based On Actual Live Event.
  • Zero Limits Live From Maui DVDs. Let Dr. Joe Vitale And Dr. Ihaleakala Hew Len Teach You How To Get To The Incredibile & Euphoric State Of ‘Zero’ – (this Is Where You Clear Yourself Of Past Limitations And Open Yourself Up To A World Filled With Unlimited Possibilities).

What We Think We Know – The Grace of Not Knowing

What do we really know?

If you are like me you have spent years processing your childhood through one method or another. We Baby Boomers are the psychological/spiritual “processors”. We’ve developed and used all sorts of techniques for exploring our inner selves. They have all had their usefulness, I don’t intend any criticism of them. I’ve been one of the biggest “process junkies” of them all.

But what do we really know? What does the past, or our selective memory of our past, have to do with the truth of this moment now? I learned a powerful lesson about this during a weekend retreat I attended recently.

I spent my 20’s doing Primal Therapy focused on my past, my thirties and forties engaging all sorts of meditation practices and “fifth dimensional” technologies, trying to assist in the evolution of the planet, focused on creating a new future for humanity. Then there was also the more personal work with the law of attraction and creating my personal future as I wanted it.

And then in my early fifties I learned about being present in the moment, the power of now. I learned lots of theories of “how things are;” and was constantly redefining my reality. But what did I really know? Theories, concepts, even powerful experiences of other dimensional phenomenon – what did they teach me about truth, about love?

I’ve experienced a great deal in the last few years. I fell in love with a spiritual teacher (a phenomena I didn’t even know existed before it happened to me) and through that relationship I have experienced truth. I have experienced love. I’ve experience who I truly am. But what do I really know?

Until a few days ago, I thought I knew how a pivotal experience in my childhood had effected me, what it meant in terms of my experience of who I was, what it meant in terms of my relationship with my father. I thought I knew what the limits of that relationship were, I thought I had accepted what could never be. I thought I knew what could and couldn’t be.

Then in a moment of grace, with this beloved teacher, all that changed. A door opened and I allowed the possibility for something I had assumed was not possible, for something to be different from the way I had always held it in my mind. And the result has been that a connection, an exquisite expression of love, deeper than anything that has ever been before, has been exchanged between my father and me. And the past and it’s “traumas” have fallen away. All that I thought I knew, and that had defined me, shifted, and there is only love.

I’m deliberately being a bit vague, not wanting to make a private moment between my father and me something public. But I hope you can feel the energy of what I am offering. What we think we know is not always true. And when you can allow a moment of not knowing, truth can be revealed.

I offer you this opportunity I had. Let yourself not know how things are for just a moment. Open your mind and heart to a door you thought was closed, for just a moment. See if it is really closed. Don’t know. Allow yourself to express the depth of who you are and see what the response is. Maybe, you’ll find that what you thought you knew is true. But if you are lucky, maybe, like me, you’ll find that what you thought was the truth never really existed outside your mind. And finally, there is nothing real but love.
