Reiki helped me become more centered, grounded, and in tune with my body. Sometimes, people have excess weight because it is your body literally trying to weigh you down to keep your energy/your soul on the earth plane. When this combination happens, you are ungrounded. I spent probably the first 27 years of my life this way. I am an empath but I didn’t know for the longest time. If you are an empath or sensitive person and don’t know how to harness your abilities, you might just feel kicked around by life. I share that with you because often people talk about being ungrounded from a lens of judgment. If you are not grounded and they are, they might feel as if they are better than you. I know no one can ever make you feel “less than” without your permission, but I was on the receiving end of this vibe many times. While I tried to figure out why I was not grounded, it took years to find a teacher who explained this way to me. The idea of your body trying to ground you with excess weight might seem like a silly idea, but it is true.
At the soul level, we remember the awesomeness and loving energy of the heavenly plane. Often our energy can start to lift out of our bodies because of traumatic events or simply the unpleasantness of everyday life. A person’s body can also stored traumatic events. This excess weight can especially happen to sensitive/gifted people. You might like to read books from Doreen Virtue such as “Assertiveness for Earth Angels,” “Connecting with your Angels,” “Losing Your Pounds of Pain,” or “Constant Craving.” Use your intuition to pick the best book for you to read at this time. Excess weight can happen to sensitive people for many reasons. When you arm yourself with the knowledge from these sort of books, you can better solve your own excess weight mystery.
For me losing the weight in compassed reading books, doing self-reflection, and giving myself lots of reiki. The book “You Can Heal Your Life” by Louise Hay might also be helpful. I used Louise’s charts in the back of the book in addition to reiki to help unravel some of the mysteries of my own health. I used those charts as a tool to have a dialogue with my body. Having this dialogue, helped me to work through some of the trauma in my energy field. Become aware of issues and unraveling them, helped me to become more grounded and lose weight!
