How to Clear Stubborn Fat and Cellulite

A few weeks ago I did a healing meditation at the gym, intending for the emotional baggage stored on my body to slip away. It was a fun way to combine my healing studies with my workout, and you know what? It worked!

Many people meditate with their eyes closed, but I like to keep mine open. The cool thing about the Third Eye is that it works even when we're in motion, while jogging or doing crunches.  

Why combine healing with weight loss?

I should mention that I am already slim, but there are pockets of stuck energy (fat) that I want to clear. Most of it sits on my bum, hips and stomach area. There is not much of it. The main reason I go to the gym is to stay toned and get rid of stress. Why not kill three birds with one stone and heal myself as well? 

A lot of us can relate the topic so I'm putting it out there even though I'd rather not write about fat and cellulite. How we feel is more important than how we look and I would rather focus on emotional baggage and how it can lead to a bit of extra weight on our bodies... 

Louise Hay on Stubborn Fat:

Fat often represents fear and the need to shield ourselves. For example, many empaths and intuitives gain weight around the belly because it shields their physical and emotional bodies from other people's stress and drama. 

IHeal Your Body Louise Hay tells us that fear masks hidden anger and a resistance to forgive the past. The location of any stubborn fat on the body gives clues about its meaning: 

  • Cellulite is stored anger and self-punishment
  • The buttocks represent power and/or loss of power. 
  • Fat on hips and thighs represents stubborn anger from childhood (often at parents)
With this in mind I set out to do a clearing meditation that would wipe away all traces of anger, self-punishment, fear, need for protection and the perceived loss of power in my life. I don't often weight myself, but I can feel a difference in my clothes and more importantly, how I feel about myself and about my life.

Try It Out! (Eyes Open, Please) 

Step 1) Intense Workout With White Light

I began with 20 minutes on the elliptical cardio machine, visualising white light scrubbing and releasing all traces of anger from my energy field. I then placed a huge grounding cord at the bottom of my Aura and let that energy fall to the center of the Earth for purification. 

Wherever I felt I had pockets of fat or cellulite (the last stubborn lumps), I focused my attention and asked my intuition to show me what was held there. The flashes I had were from my first job. In hindsight, I wasn't living up to my potential and felt powerless to change. 

Eventually, I quit that and moved to London, where I now live and work. Some of that energy was still with me and as the workout continued, I let that frustration fade away.  

Step 2)  Walk It Off ... 

Next, I moved to the treadmill and power walked it off.  I visualized myself leaving behind all of the baggage I had just cleared. My third eye popped open and I saw myself walking in a forest. The terrain became a bit steeper and I adjusted the treadmill to reflect this change of scenery (eyes open, always!)

As I continued climbing I could sense the trees around me, the wind in my hair and the moonlight shining down between the tree branches. All along I had my eyes open and was perfectly conscious of my surroundings. 

I could feel my spirit soaring and soaking in the light, the air, and also the nutrients from the soil under my feet. This went on for a few minutes, and then the mental image shifted to a slight downhill slope, and it finally disappeared. At that point, I went to do a light "toning circuit" and then went home. 

One Last Suggestion!

Read my Tiny Buddha article, Stop Crash Dieting: An Enjoyable Approach to Weight Loss, for a comprehensive view of emotions and eating (what are we really feeding?)

If you're an empath, learning to clear and shield your personal space will also help by reducing the need to shield yourself with weight. Download the intro to my Chakra Healing book and learn how > {A Gift Here!}

  1. I am a huge fan of Lousie Hay and it was her book, "You Can Heal Your Life", that made a huge impact in my life. I was able to stop smoking and drinking after 20 years of use. However, the most difficult part of journey has been my weight gain over the past 3 years. A total of 35lbs. I eat healthy 75% of the type, hardly any processed food and excerise at least 3 times a week. I know I must be angry about something but do not feel angry. I did suffer great pain from both my parents as a child, and sometimes my heart still feels hurts. I meditate often and talk to God and the angels but something is blocking me and my body is shutting down.

    1. Hi Anonymous, Have you seen a doctor (nutritionist or a endocrinologist)? I'm not sure what you mean by "your body is shutting down" but it sounds like you might need one.

      On another note, if there is a spiritual or emotional reason you can also ask your subconscious mind to tell you when you are sleeping. What do your dreams say?

      Take care,

    2. Hi Anonymous,
      I can highly recommend Inner Child work, to say it is profound and fundamental would not do it justice. The major shifts I have had with this simple and easy process is far more than I can put into this little box. Our emotional patterning, belief system, self image is all created when we are kids, and these are often formulated by childlike views. So by addressing current issues right at the core level, you pull the weed from the roots... And the joy with doing this type of process work, is that it is gentle... You, as your grown up self,are managing the process... So you approach your Inner Child in the way you always wanted to be treated. You become the 'parent' you always wanted. The Inner Child heals, which affects you currently, your relationship with others changes too, as your relationship with this aspect of yourself developes more. I find that now, when I see myself reacting to something, I connect with my Inner Child immediately and find out what is going on with her... Often it is because she feels unsafe. After reassuring her and giving her the comfort she needs, she is fine... And I then see my current situation differently. As your relationship with your Inner Child strengthens, you might find your relationship with your Higher Self does too. If you need assistance in getting started, you can ask a Hypnotherapist to connect you with your inner child or a Reiki Master to use guided meditation. WIshing you all the best, in love and compassion Dawn Penny

    3. Hi Dawn, That's really interesting, thanks for the comment. I hadn't thought to connect with my Inner Child in that way. Why do you suppose the link with your Higher Self also strengthens?

      Thanks

    1. Hi Anonymous,

      Thank you for reaching out. Forgiving is extremely personal and I like to think it is about setting ourselves free from the past. I would suggest to start by doing meditations where you send yourself love, to the past, and to your family, including your parents. I also believe prayer can help us chip away at the shell of emotions that keeps us from forgiving. I personally like the Our Father and a Hawaiian healing & forgiveness mantra known as Ho Ľoponopono.

      It consists of asking your inner child for forgiveness; the idea is that there is a little part of ourselves that holds onto anger, guilt and resentment. We work and pray with that part of ourselves to let to of any anger in our body and mind. The mantra for this technique is: "I'm sorry, Please forgive me, I love you, Thank You" and the idea is to repeat it numerous times every day. We apologize to our inner child for putting it through that situation, we send it love and we thank it for opening up to forgiveness. Sometimes I visualise my 6-7 year old self filled with love. Or I imagine moonlight filtering through every part of me, past, present and future, and clearing and healing. It takes time to let go of these feelings and if its hard for you, I would suggest seeing a psychologist to talk about your past.

      The Ho'oponono can also heal feeling of guilt, which can often arise when we regret our past behavior. We may wish we had done things differently for ourselves. This might not be the case with you, though I thought I would mention it, just in case. Please remember that healing is complementary to medical care and any self-work should be combined with treatment from a medically trained doctor. Thanks
