What Is My Spirit Trying To Learn With My Fluctuating Body Weight?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, PE.

PE: I was wondering if you could give me some guidance about what’s going on with my body weight? I’ve struggled with maintaining a healthy body weight for many years, and I’m tired of going through the cycles of yo-yo dieting.

Council: There were other times (lives) when you were uncomfortable in your body, and so we see why you chose this particular challenge again.

PE: Can The Council help me understand what my spirit is trying to learn or achieve with these challenges related to my body weight?

Council: Because there were many ups and downs in other lifetimes, in your current lifetime you wanted to experience both being very thin and being very heavy, and find out how to acknowledge how you felt in each experience, in each time you experienced the difference in weight, the difference in the shape of your body, your face, and your hair. Did you take more care of yourself when you were thinner or when you were heavier?

You wanted to find out who you are. That was behind the wish in experiencing both, to know when you realize how you feel thin, how you feel heavy, and to go beyond that. Who are you? To start asking the question: Who are you? Who are you really? What does it feel like to believe that you are more than just your body? But at first it was to experience the body in different situations so you can get a hold on it and an idea of how it felt either way, and now to take it further. Who am I really?

And as you begin to ask this question and perhaps meditate on it, you’ll find a way to create experiences for you where you begin to feel the lightness of being a soul. You’d be able to acknowledge the confidence you’re looking for when you know that you are more than just this body. So step by step, it was to lead you to find out who you really are, and this is the way you chose to do it.

Bob: And as they get closer to understanding who they really are, their body weight will fluctuate less?

Council: Yes. And then you would find the shape of the body you are most comfortable in and then take it beyond.

PE: I’ve recently joined Overeaters Anonymous because I don’t know where else to turn. I’d appreciate any guidance in this matter. Thank you so much in advance.

Council: Meditate. Read the book, Emmanuel. Read all three Emmanuel books and get in touch with spirit. Once you read the books you will be led in a completely different direction so you will be able to focus on spirit, get acquainted with it, and move forward from there.

  2. Great question and answer! This too has been one of my lifelong challenges, and when I finally went within, I not only began to know the “true” me, but also began to heal.
