Can You Think Yourself Thin?

By: Laura Saltman

Affirmation, manifestation, and the Law of Attraction. If you’re using any of these trendy terms in your life, you might believe that thinking positively can lead you to be rich and thin forever. The problem with this new trend of spiritual awakening and mindfulness is that most people understand it, but don’t actually believe it. They don’t believe the universe is guiding us to our best self. Together we can create the body we want or give us the willpower to stop eating that morning donut. Not to mention that every day we have thoughts about ourselves that underserve our true nature, “I am not looking my best today,” or “This shirt makes me look fat.” My personal favorite that I hear time and time again would be, “My butt is gigantic in this.”

Actually, your butt looks great! Stop hiding it and, more importantly, stop saying it. Those type of statements may seem harmless out loud, but when internalized, they burrow deep into our subconscious. This is where they live without our knowledge and continue to damage our self-image over and over. In order to change our outward experiences, we must first change our inner thought processes. This is how you think yourself thin.

In my new book, The All of Everything, a Spiritual Guide to Inner World Domination, new thought processes are presented to help change our perception of ourselves. Simple, consistent, daily practice of the following can help you towards a New You:


Step 1 –  See A New You

Wake up every morning, look at yourself in the mirror, and see through to what is really inside. Catch the vision of how who you truly are at the core, a soul in a human vessel. Even if you have bed head, picture yourself as the radiant beauty with the perfect body staring back at you.

Step 2 –  Speak A New You

As you look in that mirror say, “I declare myself to always be perfect, beautiful, and genius.”  Repeat it 3 or 4 times until that better version of yourself forms in the mirror.

Step 3 – Question A New You

Ask yourself every day, “Who Am I?” The only acceptable answer is that you are whole and perfect exactly as you are. Let no other thoughts enter your mind.

Step 4 – Reveal A New You

Ask yourself, “Where Am I Holding onto Fear?” Revealing our innermost demons is the only way to remove destructive patterns of thought. Take some time every day to think about it, write it down if you have to, and see what type of fear bubbles to the surface. Are you holding onto resentment or depression? Do you feel unworthy and unlovable?

Once you recognize a fear, toss it over to the universe for transformation by saying something like, “I don’t know how to release this persistent fear, but you do and so I give it back to you.” Then believe it can be done for you and it will happen through you.

Step 5 – Fuel the New You

Recognize that you cannot continue to put junk food in your body, period. You can’t meditate, affirm, or attract a healthy body without knowing this spiritual truth. Steps 1 – 4 do not work without step 5. There is no getting around the fact that in order to maintain optimal mind-body function, to truly think yourself thin, we have to fuel our bodies properly. That means losing the chemicals, processed foods, and things like casein and nitrates.  Below is an excerpt from The All of Everything on what we do need to be putting in our bodies daily.

“Water, sulfur, amino acids, niacin, thiamine, and vitamins A, B, C, D, E, K and B-12 as well as a few other non-essential but primary elements on which bodies thrive such as calcium carbonate, alkali, unrefined and unprocessed cane sugar and plant protein (particularly from ground sources).”

Remember this quote and you’ll find the person that you’re meant to be, “See a new you, speak a new you and a new you will emerge.”
