How to loose excess weight and how to keep it off is a question many people ask every day.New York Times best-selling author, Marianne Williamson’s latest book “A Course in Weight loss” can show you how to feel comfortable in your own skin and how to surrender your weight forever and give birth to a new, beautiful and loving you! When Hay House asked me to review “A Course in Weight Loss” and I received a free copy in the mail, I was truly excited! I believe Marianne Williamson is one of the most influential spiritual teachers of our time and if you have read any of her previous books, such as “A Return to Love: Reflections on the Principles of a Course in Miracles” or “Illuminata: Thoughts, Prayers, Rites of Passage” I’m sure you have come to realize the great wisdom and love contained in her teachings. “A Course in Weight Loss” is no exception. This book is not just about what you eat, but instead it is more about letting go of your fear and replacing it with an immeasurable love. Williamson provides 21 lessons to help you explore and understand the root of your suffering and she guides you in ways in which you can cultivate new strengths. This is a journey into conscious weight-loss. Marianne says ” It is conscious in that it goes beyond the mere letting go of weight; it is a letting go of the part of your personality for which eating excessively and self-destructively has felt natural. Your losing weight is not just the removal of excess weight from your body; it is the removal of unwanted dynamic from your mind. You are building new synapses in your brain, new tracks in your nervous system, and new thoughts-forms in your problem-solving repertoire.” Getting involved in the lessons will show you the deeper joy you are searching for is not found in food but rather in living fully and embracing life. If you are ready to participate in a profound spiritual journey and return to your truest self, then this book will gently help you face your biggest fear, that of giving birth to a new you. If you are ready to be free, to be extraordinary, to be your most joyful self, then this book and it’s 21 lessons will help you align yourself with the lightness of your true being so that the heavy energies of addictive and compulsive eating and unhealthy lifestyle choices will fall away of their own dead weight. This book is written for people who are ready to look at the deeper causes of their suffering and pain. It requires an honest, sometimes difficult examination of your unprocessed pain and how it may be expressing itself as a desire to eat more than your body requires to stays healthy. In Lesson One, Williamson gives you an opportunity to explore feelings of shame, fear, anger, unforgiveness and many more emotions that may be holding you back from living fully in the light of love. As you continue on with the lessons you will learn how to replace old, unproductive, unhealthy habits with a new, vibrant and fresh way of being in the world. You will be given the tools to create a new life, step-by-step. However this does require a commitment and time set aside everyday to read the lesson, write in a journal, take action in new ways, and quiet time for reflection and prayer. I would not recommend this book for someone who cannot find at least 1 hour a day to focus on the lessons and who does not want to approach weight loss from a spiritual perspective. If you are ready to take a deep and honest look at your life and your eating patterns, then I truly believe that this book can change your life. This book is a priceless gift for anyone who wishes to break free from the crippling restrictions and limitations that come from living a life filled with fear. It is a valuable resource for anyone who wants to live a life filled with more love and light.
