Dealing Naturally With Obesity and Weight Loss

April 10th, 2006

Dealing with obesity – avoid short term entrapment

Modern living often means a diet of fast foods and quick energy needs. This can lead to obesity and many people are overweight due to inactivity and years of eating the incorrect foods.

Comfort eating, or eating to fulfill emotional needs is another important cause of weight problems.

While fashion dictates that we need to be slim and attractive, many women embark on a series of yo-yo diets or even purging in order to Lose Weight and conform to society’s vision of Beauty.

This may lead to short-term weight loss, but in the long run it disturbs the Metabolism and makes the weight more and more difficult to lose.

Isn’t it strange that so many people are always Dieting, yet the numbers of obese and overweight people are rising every year?

Years of Dieting have even been shown to cause slow Metabolism which can lead to weight gain.

Smart lifestyle and EcoSlim - the safe, effective approach

“I tried every diet in the book. I was always on a different diet but if I lost weight it would go straight back on.

The Slimming Drops made a big difference and every time I stood on the scale I had a smile on my face! After two weeks I had already lost 11 lbs, after 6 weeks I weighed 30 lbs less than when I started! I have never felt or looked so good!” - Janey, USA.

“I usually don’t write in but I really felt that I wanted to tell you that EcoSlim did everything it promised to do. I usually Exercise twice a week and am not a big eater, but I just couldn’t Lose Weight, especially in my thighs and hips. I have now lost 6 pounds without any effort. There is much less cellulite too.” - Tabitha, USA.

“I am an emotional eater and I could never stay on a diet. Michele said I should take MindSoothe together with EcoSlim. I have succeeded for the first time in keeping to my diet and I have been eating sensibly with no binging for the last 6 weeks, which is a record for me! I can see the pounds coming off and everyone at work has been complimenting me!” - Malinda M., USA.

Why Use Crystals

April 10th, 2006

What is it about them above all other stones that makes them so special?

Quartz Crystals have been used since ancient times as powerful healing objects and Meditation tools, and to make medicinal elixirs. Wise adepts have long known about their qualities and have used Crystals for powerful talismans and amulets. Throughout history people have valued the Beauty of Quartz Crystals and have used them for ornamental decoration. References to Crystals are found in both the Old and New Testament, and in many other sacred teachings throughout the world.

How can minerals or stones have any influence or value? It is because there is a consciousness inherent in all forms of matter. Even rocks have their own consciousness! We use these Crystals of the mineral kingdom to aid us in Attunement with different aspects of ourselves.

Crystals have their own particular vibration of a precise and measurable intensity. This vibration attunes itself to human vibration better than any other gem or mineral. Quartz crystal is used to amplify, clarify and store energy. When you create a thought, you can amplify and clarify it by using a crystal. Quartz has long been recognized for its ability to produce electrical impulses. (Pressure on Quartz crystal generates a minute electrical charge called piezoelectricity.)

You can learn how to handle and work with Crystals to heal yourself, others, and the Earth. Crystals have long been revered for use in magick, for psychic development, and to see into the “hidden dimensions” that permeate physical reality. It is said that crystal has the ability to rebroadcast energy from the Universal Mind so your “inner self” can pick it up, granting you heightened perception. A crystal is a Focus for this knowledge and help, and it magnifies and transmits psychic energies and healing powers.

Crystals have a hexagonal, symmetrical shape. This is a basic form in geometry, physics and atomic theory, and is a universal, perfect form in the structure of matter. The energy that radiates from clear Quartz, the piezoelectric effect, amplifies healing abilities.

As a Rose has been called the most perfect representation of Beauty in the plant kingdom, the Quartz crystal is the essence of perfection in the mineral kingdom.

The use of any form of Quartz crystal will benefit you. What can you do with these Gemstones and Crystals to help yourself? Use them in your Reflexology treatments. Meditate with them. Place them on a part of your body that needs healing. Carry them around in your pocket. Wear them as jewelry or use them as a keychain. Sleep with them under your Pillow. Put them on your desk, kitchen table, coffee table, anywhere that you will be near them and enjoy the benefits of their vibrations. They are just like a good friend—one whose companionship you delight in. Love them. Look at them. Enjoy them. They help you by their very presence. It’s a gift they freely and lovingly give to you.
