Why, when I set a goal to get rid of something like my fat belly, do I just get more belly? The answer to your question is that you may be literally creating what you don’t want by un-creating your goal with the word BUT.
We had a woman who was working with The Guardian Code System to deal with health issues one of which was an alarming increase in her weight and particularly of belly fat. In her youth she had been quite athletic and she had been very comfortable with her naturally well shaped and conditioned body. She had developed some health issues and among other things began to gain weight in the form of pronounced increases in belly fat. She complained that the goal she had set for reducing her weight was not working.
She was taking her pills and remedies regularly BUT she was gaining more weight. She was sticking religiously to what should’ve been a good weight loss diet BUT the scales proved every day she still had a serious problem. She was also careful to have written her goal clearly and was daydreaming it every day with positive strong emotions BUT she continued to look and feel worse every day. She found it more and more difficult to “feel” excited and happy with her daydream of slim and trim when the mirror said “BUT nothing is happening”.
If our thoughts, feelings and words literally create our conditions and our lives then here is what is happening. If the goal that we desire requires us to focus totally on the desired outcome and never on the fear or question that it might not occur what happens to our goal when we say “BUT it’s not happening”? “It’s not happening” becomes the “goal” or outcome that is being created (felt strongly about).
When you set a goal, in this case weight loss, you focus your thoughts feelings and words on the outcome that you desire. If you get up in the morning and weigh yourself, look in the mirror and try to find evidence of whether anything is happening what are you focusing on?
You are focused on whether your goal will be reached, not the outcome that has already been achieved. Every time you look in the mirror, weigh yourself or say the words I don’t see anything yet, you literally un-create your focus on the outcome as having already occurred.
When you follow your statement of a goal as having been already achieved with the word BUT you just told yourself and the universe that your belief in your goal was a lie.
When you set a goal to achieve your positive outcome and then you spend your time all day when the problem comes to mind saying to yourself “BUT my problem is still here and I hate it” your real problem is that your “BUT” is In your way.
