Visualize Your Perfect Body

Hello there Fit Fem’rs! Hope you are doing fantastic and have enjoyed your weekend. I wanted to start the week right by posting an article that’ll motivate you and set your week straight. So Happy Mindset Monday! I think that the biggest component to attaining your perfect body is to actually picture what you would look like with that perfect body. Can you even imagine what you would look like and how you would feel? I bet it feels so awesome!

You are what you think! Your mind has powerful potential to help you get the results you want, and one good way to use it is to visualize your perfect body. With visualization, your mind creates strong mental images of what you desire. Since images have stronger effects than words, having these mental images will attract your desires more powerfully. This is what is stated in the natural law of attraction, which, in the simplest terms, tells that you physically attract what you mentally think. When you visualize your perfect body, your mind generates thoughts of the results you want. And by generating these thoughts, your mind then becomes some sort of a magnet; exerting forces and energies that attract these thoughts and make them a reality.

I know it sounds really silly right? You are probably thinking, what is this chick Syl smokin’? Ummm, well I’m high on positivity. Whoop Whoop! Ever notice how people who are always complaining of pain or some illness or condition never seem to get better. And they always stay that way? Well, that’s because they are a super magnet to negativity.

So anyway, when you visualize your perfect body, your mind makes use of your subconscious. The subconscious mind is a powerful, yet untapped part of the brain. As you create a clear picture and visualize your perfect body, you program your subconscious mind to accept this visualization as a fact. Together with a strong desire, visualization makes your mind exert unseen forces with its vast potential energy that will make the reality in your mind manifest in the physical world and bring you tangible results. Ok don’t laugh at this, but its true… you can create anything you want to create including your perfect body.

Visualize your perfect body by first finding time to relax and be comfortable. Close your eyes and take a deep breath. As you get more and more relaxed, paint a picture of the perfect body you desire by using your imagination. Include every detail, from the long, shapely legs, slim arms and waist, and a cellulite-free figure. Think about how hot you look in that bikini, or a really sexy tight fitting dress. Oooo can we say hot mama!! Or how about your soon to be wedding dress. Be the Fit Fem you’ve always wanted to be. Imagine yourself having that body and how your life will be better with it. Think and feel on how much you want to attain such a perfect body. Enliven your desire with strong emotions and a conviction that you WILL have this body of your dreams. Maintain the strong feeling and the vivid mental picture for a few minutes then breathe deeply and open your eyes.

The best time to visualize your perfect body with the sample exercise above is during before sleep time, when you are most relaxed and lying comfortably. Your subconscious mind is also more open as you drift into sleep, thus creating a longer-lasting mental image. It is ideal to do it do as you wake up. This is the time when you are also relaxed, most focused and motivated to make the most out of the day ahead. However, you can also do these visualizations throughout the day. I, also, use this technique when I’m working out. I look at myself and see what I perceive to be my perfect body. I even sometimes cut out pictures of the body I want and place a picture of myself on it. I’ll usually place this perfect body image on the bathroom mirror or bedroom mirror. So every time I look at it, it creates this energy and I feel more encouraged to adopt the habits that’ll get me to achieve that perfect body. The more you think about attaining the perfect body, the more you will be inclined to achieve it with the help of your mind’s natural energies.

Visualizing and thinking of yourself as healthy, fit and sexy is just one of the ways your powerful mind can help you get the gorgeous perfect body you’ve always wanted. Visualize your perfect body now and make the most out of your mind’s innermost potentials to realize the body of your dreams!

So tell me what your perfect body would be like in the comment box below. Let’s encourage each other to get to the right mindset and become awesome Fit Fem’rs.

Colin Hay – from Men at Work (full band show)

FIERCE MERCY is an epic, cinematic step forward from singer-songwriter Colin Hay, most beloved for his intimate, confessional live shows but most widely known for being an influential and celebrated frontman. The range of artists who have chosen to cite him as a muse or who have found themselves on stage with him in the past year spans the genre landscape from heavy metal, to Americana, to Cuban rhythms and beyond. His inclusion as a playlist favorite from the likes of Metallica to The Lumineers reflects his continuing relevance and broad appeal.Recorded in both Los Angeles and Nashville and mixed by Vance Powell (Chris Stapleton, Jack White) and Gordon Hammond (Buddy Miller, Don Williams), FIERCE MERCY explores themes of love and loss, mortality, and even the odd UFO sighting, but always with the singular perspective and insightful wit that define Hays work. He has created a new classic in his impressive repertoire (this is his 13th solo release), using a palette of pop songcraft, Americana flourishes, and soundtrack-ready strings. FIERCE MERCY is animated by its pensive, honest, and impassioned lyrics, and, Hay adds, by a sense of urgency felt deeply in the song The Last to Know, which introduces the albums title concept of fierce mercy.When youre in your 20s, you think youve got all the time in the world, Hay said. You get older, and you go through a quickening. Everything seems to get faster.Using his gift for expressing struggle in a way that resonates with a wide variety of people, he compares this to the messages mankind is getting on a global level: With the changing weather patterns, or the polar ice caps melting, were getting all of these warnings, and a lot of them are incredibly fierce. But they still feel somewhat merciful theyre not destroying us totally. Were all being told, Listen, you can still maybe address this, and it wont get to the point where I have to take you all out. Youve still got a shot.Ten of the albums 13 stellar compositions were collaborations with Michael Georgiades, who contributed to Hays previous sets Next Year People (2015) Gathering Mercury (2011) and American Sunshine (2009). The pair co-wrote two of the albums clear stand-outs, the pop vocal ballad A Thousand Million Reasons and the Americana leaning Come Tumblin Down. Michael Georgiades is my secret weapon but I guess now with this album its not a secret anymore, Hay jokes.Some of the songs are deeply personal: She Was the Love of Mine, is an elegy for the singers mother, who died three years ago. Some are novelistic: Frozen Fields of Snow recounts the story of a war veteran returning to his childhood home after outliving the other members of his unhappy family. Sometimes lyrical ideas will come into your head, so you follow them and see where they go, Hay says.Largely recorded in Topanga with Hays wife, Cecilia Nol and Hays regular accompanists bassist Yosmel Montejo, drummer Charlie Paxson, keyboardists Fred Kron and Jeff Babko, and guitarist/tres player San Miguel Perez FIERCE MERCY was completed in sessions at Compass Sound Studio in Nashville with Compass Records principal Garry West at the helm, who also contributed bass on a few cuts.Hay says, Garry is always trying to get me to Nashville to do some recording, to get me out of the comfort zone of my own studio get me out of my lair! So I went to Nashville and we recorded the strings with a nine-piece section, and he introduced me to some players that he loves, who added another fantastic layer to the album.The Nashville players include guitarists Audley Freed (Sheryl Crow, the Black Crowes, the Dixie Chicks) and Doug Lancio (John Hiatt), pedal steel guitarist and organist Jim Hoke (Iris Dement, Don Henley, Darius Rucker) and Compass co-founder Alison Brown (banjo).Though many music fans will be glad to see the end of 2016, it was something of a breakout year for this career artist that included a three-week run at the Edinburgh Fringe; performances on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel Live! and ABCs Greatest Hits; sharing the stage with Of Monsters and Men, Milk Carton Kids, Choir Choir Choir!, Kings of Leon; being publicly cited as an influence by artists as distinct as James Hetfield of Metallica, Jeremiah Fraites of The Lumineers, Troy Sanders of Mastodon, and The Infamous Stringdusters; as well as the completion of a documentary film about his career entitled Waiting for My Real Life, named for one of his best known solo recordings. Now finding himself in the unprecedented place of having both 80s fame and indie credibility, its possible that Hay has delivered the defining album of his solo career.
