There are strong relaxation components as well. By relaxing and de-stressing, we reduce cortisol in the bloodstream and that helps shift our blood chemistry into a healthier zone, as well as assisting with weight loss.
For many people, this imagery has been found to reduce symptoms and make managing blood sugar levels easier. It’s called A Meditation to Help You Control Diabetes, and it has affirmations on a separate track. This would work really well for you, especially in conjunction with A Meditation to Help You with Weight Loss.
We know from psychological research that one of the things that helps motivate people to behave more healthfully is imagining themselves feeling better and doing better. For many, this is a much better motivator than feeling “life or death” scared; or than being disgusted with yourself for “misbehaving”. So what we’ve incorporated into the affirmations are these more positive images and motivators.
Samples of a few of the affirmations:
I call upon my intention to heal myself and keep my body well. I engage my powerful will to assist me in doing this.
The blueprint that I hold in my mind’s eye, that I instruct my body to follow, is the picture of a healthy, vital, strong body. I can see it and I can feel it as I hear these words: healthy, vital and strong.
I invite assistance from my friends and loved ones, past, present and future, to lend me their support and strength. I see myself surrounded by their love and caring, and I feel it all over my body like a warm wave.
I can see and feel radiant sunlight, entering my body and penetrating all the way to the cells, encouraging them to find the insulin in the blood, connect with it and open to the abundance of glucose that is available.
So you get the idea. It’s tough to stay on track with diabetes, because extra insulin floating around in the bloodstream (because the cells aren’t able to make proper use of it) along with extra blood sugar, can make you feel so logy, depressed and unmotivated. That’s why the imagery can help break up that defeating pattern.
To this point, I just found this comment on the review page for this audio program – check it out and take heart:
This is not the first time we’ve heard this.
Best of luck to you.
