Learn Katherine Heigl’s Secret Spiritual Way To Lose Weight
Actress and fashion model Katherine Heigl lost weight after pregnancy, dropping 50lbs fast.
What will amaze you more is the way in which Katherine Heigl lost weight.
You might think that Katherine Heigl went on a fad diet, given how popular Paleo and the Alkaline diet are right now. Or, being a fashion model, that it was a personal trainer who helped her lose weight.
(Perhaps she used our guide to meditative weight loss).
Actually, it was a much more enlightened, spiritual method of weight loss.
“My best weight loss advice is to start every morning by saying out loud a positive mantra of your choice about your body,” Heigl tells us.
Mantras have been in use for more than 3000 years. They originated in Indian in the Hindu tradition when the texts the Rig Veda were written. These laid down many sacred mantras.
Traditional spiritual mantras work by tuning the mind to certain frequencies.
When we hum a sound we produce a certain frequency of sound. If we then meditate on that sound we change the frequency of the body and mind to that of the mantra.
This is how traditional mantras work.

Over the past 3000 years mantras have evolved. Today, when many people say “mantras” they actually mean “affirmation.”
An affirmation is different to a mantra. A weight loss affirmation is simply a statement of phrase that we recite to ourselves to create positive beliefs.
Katerhine Heigl’s weight loss mantra was this type of affirmation.
“[My mantra] is ‘I am easily, with good health, inspiration, grace and gratitude, losing weight faster than I can even imagine with harm to none’.”
You can see how Katherine Heigl has constructed her mantra. It’s a positive statement (“I am losing weight”) mixed with various positive emotions and attitudes (“inspiration”, “grace”, “gratitude”).
Interestingly, Katherine Heigl has also stated in the mantra that she is losing weight “with good health”.
At a time when numerous people have died after having weight loss balloon surgery (source: SHAPE) and others are getting weight loss grants to have other such unhealthy and costly medical procedures for weight loss, it’s reassuring to see a celebrity losing weight in an enlightened, spiritual way.
You too can lose weight with a mantra.
Follow these steps to create you own weight loss mantra
Grab a notebook / phone / Word and follow these steps to create your perfect weight loss mantra.
1: State your goal in a way that makes you feel positive. This is important because different people are affected by different words. For instance, for myself, “I am consciously creating a health body” works great. You might prefer, “I am stripping off the pounds fast” or “I am crushing my weight loss.” Pick something that feels good to you.
2: Choose positive attitude to load your mantra with: Katherine Heigl loaded her mantra with the attitude of gratitude and grace. What attitudes would you most like? Some good examples are “appreciation”, “inner peace” and “love”
3: Insert those attitudes into your mantra: Now you’re going to insert the attitudes into the mantra. For instance, if we pick “I am consciously creating a healthy body” as our seed mantra, and “love” and “appreciation” as our positive attitudes, we can rework our mantra. For instance, we could write “I am consciously and lovingly creating a healthy body out of appreciation for myself.” You might like to rework your mantra a few times until it feels perfect (you will know because it will feel inspiring).
4: Close your eyes and focus: Take five minutes to relax your mind.
5: Recite the mantra 108 times: Speak your mantra out loud 108 times. This will instill the mantra into your mind, creating the positive belief.
Using her weight loss mantra, Katherine Heigl lost 50LBS.
“By saying them out loud with love and gratitude I have found that I not only start to believe, but my body exhibits what I say and believe.”
Heigl states that weight loss mantras are more about positive intention than about magic. And she supports her mantra with basic healthy eating and exercise.
“The difference I’ve found in doing the work with a loving and positive attitude versus an anxious, frustrated and negative one is that the weight really does seem to just fall away with less struggle.”
Recent scientific research proves that our weight loss mindset is pivotal to success.
Mantras like this are a simple and affective way to create positive beliefs in the mind. Once the belief is in the mind, it motivates positive actions that lead to desired results.
