What role does polarity play in health oriented intentions such as your desire to lose weight? Does polarity have a practical application in your quest to engage the Law of Attraction to lose weight? Find out if you can apply manifestation to successfully weight loss.
So you form an intention that you weigh two hundred and thirty eight pounds.
What is the polarity of such an intention? Is this a love-based (out flowing) intention or a fear-based (inflowing) intention?
It is a fear-polarized intention.
Polarity applies only to a thought’s energy, not its content. So the mere text of a thought does not dictate the thought’s polarity. It is an empty intention as there is not enough information to determine the polarity.
The specific words you use to phrase an intention do not matter much compared to the energy you put into the thought. An intention like “I weigh two hundred and thirty eight pounds” can be either polarity or it can be neutral. At the end of the day it depends on why you want to lose weight..
Do you want to lose weight because you will gain more energy to serve others (love)? Or do you want to lose weight because you’ll gain more energy to pursue your self-centered goals (fear)?
Maybe you want to lose weight because it will help you attract a mate. But do you want to attract a mate because you want to express your love with someone on a very deep level (love/outflow)? Or are you mostly afraid of being alone (fear/inflow)?
Our true motivations for an intention can be very complex. You might have a dozen valid reasons for wanting to lose weight. But ultimately when you keep asking, “Why do I want this?” and trace each reason to its source, you will end up with a combination of love and fear based motives. Either you want something because of your desire to express love, or you want it because of your desire to allay your fears.
This whole notion of polarization tells us that the more polarized your intention is (either pure love or pure fear but not both), the more easily it will manifest.
Fear and love are very powerful motivators, but when you mix them together, they dilute each other and you fail. Intentions of mixed polarity may possibly work, but. fully polarized intentions must work.
Suppose you are a dedicated to the cultivation of inner presence and the elevation of awareness in self and other people; someone who is love-polarized. And you realize that you need to lose some weight. Your motivation to lose that weight will ultimately come from your commitment to serving the greater good – not self centered. Since we all serve as role models for each other, you would want to serve as a positive role model for others. You would also want to have abundant energy available for fulfilling your purpose. You would also want to feel good about your body, so you can help others feel good about their bodies too. The fitness level you achieve for yourself is driven by your desire to serve and inspire others. This is a very powerful motivator for someone who is truly love-polarized.
Now suppose you are a only looking to serve yourself, someone who is fear polarized, and you realize that you need to lose some weight. Your motivation to lose that weight will ultimately come from your commitment to serving your own self-interest. You could care less about being a role model for others, but this extra weight has to go because it is getting in the way of your goals. You need energy to achieve the success you crave, and a better looking body will make it easier to attract a mate to satisfy your lust. Weight loss may also help you advance in your career. Also, it is important to be more fit than those around you, since you are always in competition with them, and extra fitness will give you that edge. The fitness you achieve for yourself is driven entirely by your desire to serve your own needs. How fit or fat other people are is irrelevant to you, except to the extent that you look better by comparison. This is a very powerful motivator for someone who is truly fear polarized.
Now the interesting thing is that the two opposite types of people may go on exactly the same diet, adopt the same exercise program, and achieve a similar level of fitness within the same timeframe. But they will each be doing it for very different reasons. One is driven by the desire to serve and inspire others, while the other is driven by the competitive desire to dominate others. So one would be more inclined to help others lose weight and encourage people to improve their diet and exercise habits and no personal gain, and the other would only deem help others for personal gain.
How much emphasis they both place on their health depends on their specific mission, how they are expressing their polarity. For some a high level of fitness will be very important. For others only a certain degree of functional fitness will be necessary.
Most likely you are neither type of person, but you can still apply polarity to an intention to lose weight to make it easier to succeed. Here are a couple examples.
Losing weight with love
To lose weight in a love polarized way, you might form a support group of people who also want to lose weight. You would commit yourself to their weight loss as well as your own, celebrating their milestones as your own personal victories. You would probably provide the service for free or for a very nominal fee if you can reasonably do so, so you can help as many people as possible. This commitment to helping others is going to boost your own motivation for losing weight. People are looking up to you as their role model. You are not just doing this for yourself; you are part of a team. Does this help you get an idea of how you would approach weight loss from the standpoint of love polarization?
Losing weight with fear
Now how would you lose weight with fear polarization? Forget about helping others. This is all about you, your pleasure and your pain. In this case you will use fear to create more pressure, so you are driven to succeed. Once you identify your goal weight, make a bet with someone you dislike that you’ll achieve your goal by a certain date; someone you know will just rub it in your face if you fail. If they do not want to accept a bet with you, then just promise to pay them if you fail. Make sure there are witnesses. For good measure, promise yourself a vacation or some other reward when your goal is achieved. Think often of how good you would look to your opposites. Does this help you understand how to use fear polarization to lose weight?
Plain text can not ever do justice to polarized intentions, since we are still reducing energy to content, but these examples will help you see the big picture. In each case we are using polarized energy to make the intention very strong.
Can you use a blended approach?
What would happen if you tried to combine both approaches? What if you blended the love strategy with the fear strategy? The problem with mixing both of these polarities together is that they will dilute each other, so your motivation will be greatly reduced. A single polarity provides a level of clarity and focus that drives you with much greater intensity than an energetically mixed intention. How can you express love and fear at the same time?
In order to use fear polarization, you have to hold a mindset that is inconsistent with love polarization, and vice versa. While it might seem possible if you have never tried it, in practice it simply just does not work. You might be able to mix bits and pieces of both techniques, but you will get the best results if your underlying motivation is either service or selfishness, and the techniques you select arise from that singular motive. Nevertheless, if you still think a blended approach will work, go ahead and try it yourself and see what happens. It is probably an experience you need to have, and you’ll learn far more by making that attempt than you will by reading this text.
You can certainly extend the ideas in this article to apply to other areas like relationships, family, and finances. Using polarized intentions is about being effective. Having supportive relationships is better than having no help at all, so both polarities would want decent relationships. Having more resources is better than being broke or in debt, so again both polarities would aim to have sufficient resources. But in each case the underlying motivations would be different. A love polarized person seeks leverage to increase his/her service. A fear polarized person seeks leverage to increase their personal gain above all other considerations.
So now you understand the role polarity plays in health related manifestations, you should be in able to judge whether you can successfully apply the principle to weight loss.
