Manifest Your Desires, The 2 Cup Method

clear water drops

There is a method of manifesting your desires called the 2 cup method. The method is based upon the idea that we have many different parallel realities running at the same time and the idea that in quantum physics, a particle can be in more than one place at the same time.

There is also the strange situation that the outcome of a quantum experiment can change, depending on whether or not the person decides  to measure some property of the particles involved. This suggests that it is the observer that is exerting control over the behaviour of particles. Quantum theory also hold that an entity can be particle and wave at the same time.

 

Dr Masaru Emoto conducted studies on  water for a long time He published a series of photographs in his book which are said to be frozen water crystals that have been subjected to human intentions/thoughts, some positive and some negative. The crystals subjected to positive thoughts appeared attractive and intricate. The crystals subjected to negative thoughts appeared ugly, polluted and unhealthy. This finding led Dr Emoto to conclude that thought can affect matter.

 

I have seen several variations in the manner of conducting the 2 cup method. The consistent factors are:-

 

one should get 2 cups, fill one cup with water and think about your present situation regarding what you want to manifest.

 

One should then pour the water slowly and deliberately into the second cup.

 

Once the water is in the second cup, the person should then concentrate on what he/she wants to manifest regarding the situation.

 

Once a person thinks that they have projected the positive outcome into the water, drink it all in one go.

 

Other variations include writing the current situation on a sticky note and putting it onto cup number one. Write the desired outcome on another sticky note and put it onto cup number 2 and then continue as above.

 

If you are going to do this, I would suggest using glass cups and use spring or purified water. I haven’t found these suggestions mentioned, but it makes sense to me that if you want the best results, you should do your best to ensure that impurities in the water and the receptacles are minimized.

 

Does it work?

I have tried it once recently, and while the immediate result wasn’t exactly what I wanted, I did get a communication the following day,  that will lead to the desired manifestation. Without that communication, the manifestation could not hope to come true. I had been waiting for such a communication for several weeks. I can’t say for sure that the 2 cup method brought this about, but it certainly appears that way to me.

 

The information that I have seen on this method generally states that you shouldn’t expect immediate results, although it is possible that you could get them. Be patient and don’t keep repeating the 2 cup method too frequently, give it a few weeks to manifest first.

 

The theory is that by transferring thoughts of your current situation into one glass of water, and then pouring the water into another glass and stating your desired outcome of the situation, you have completed a shift into another parallel reality where your desire does exist, a quantum leap.

 

Make of this what you will, it won’t hurt to try it and the least you will get is a positive………one of your eight, eight ounce cups of water that you should be drinking every day for health.

Maybe we could try this for weight loss too!

What Can Help You To Lose Weight?

What can help you to lose weight?

As I have mentioned before, the major principle for weight loss is to expend more energy than you receive. In this post I will look at some consumable substances that may aid healthy weight loss. None are proven to be effective for every individual because each person’s body responds to different inputs in a unique way.

Traditional Exercise

Not a consumable, but very important, exercise has always been a major component of weight loss programs, in combination with diet. The practice adheres to the major principle, as it burns off large amounts of energy. A person who is significantly overweight may have to start with an exercise regime that is not too severe at first. Walking, swimming and light weight training is ideal, and build up to more strenuous exercise if desired.

For a person who only wants to lose a few pounds and is reasonably fit, jogging (progressing to running) aerobic classes and weight training should produce good results.

It is not necessary for a person to drive himself/herself into the ground with exercise, the main function of exercise when considering weight loss, is to help get the right balance of energy input/output by following the major principle of expending more energy that one receives.

The chosen exercise program should be used in conjunction with a sensible diet plan that contains healthful supplies of all of the main components, carbohydrates, fats and proteins. I advocate a diet that is not so severe that it completely cuts out one of the three elements although such diet plans have worked for some people, and as always you will have to experiment and see what your particular body likes. One of my concerns for such diets is the fact that they may not be sustainable in the long-term which is why I prefer the more traditional approach. There is a great Diet plan called “Beyond Diet”, it is not really a diet plan as we think of them, it is more of a total long term eating lifestyle change. I am not an affiliate of Beyond Diet, I just think that it is very sensible and one of my family members uses it to good effect.

Your food should be as healthy and natural as you can possibly get it, and be sure to double-check the claims of “Organic” and “Non-GMO” on all of your food.

Diet and exercise should be the foundation of any weight loss program. The following is a list of extra assistance that may or may not be of use to you, depending on your psychological tendencies and things that your individual body responds to.

Apple Cider Vinegar

The major active ingredient of ACV is acetic acid. Drinking ACV diluted in water, is said by some to reduce hunger pangs and reduce fat storage. Studies on rats that were given acetic acid seems to have shown a reduction of belly fat. ACV is said to have many benefits, I personally use it as a treatment for spots and it works great. The reader will need to experiment with ACV to see if it works for them, but remember to get the natural unfiltered Apple Cider Vinegar containing “the mother” . The mother is a cloudy weblike substance within the vinegar which is believed to hold the key to the substance’s properties.

Green tea is said to have several health benefits, and it is believed to be very effective for losing weight. Green Tea has a high level of catechins, natural antioxidants that can improve metabolism and increase the burning of fat.

It also contains the substances caffeine and EGCG, which can have a positive effects on

metabolism. Other components in green tea increase the levels of hormones that are responsible for fat burning in our system and they release more fat into the bloodstream.

Weight Loss Pills

There are many pills on the market that claim to promote, assist or cause weight loss. The wise potential buyer would research each brand to discover the ingredients and read reviews. Some pills contain herb extracts and some contain a lot of caffeine. There are prescription pills for weight loss and they may be effective but the ingredients and side effects should be reviewed before taking them.

Foods For Weight Loss

Real butter from grass-fed cows, full fat dairy products and beef (preferably grass-fed) all contain high amounts of a compound called conjugated linoleic acid, CLA, which is a polyunsaturated fat. The human body does not make this substance. CLA is believed to be beneficial in weight loss because it may decrease body fat mass and increase lean body mass. These food also find approval with myself, as I believe that some full fat foods have gained an undeserved bad reputation over the last 30 years or so. People who lived 100 years ago were eating all of these full fat products and there was not an obesity problem like there is today. The CLA found in food is thought to be superior to supplements containing it. AS always, try to eat organic and natural products.

Coconut Oil

Coconut oil contains medium-chain fatty acids and it can  help the body burn fat for fuel and use up more energy. Coconut oil have also been found to be very satisfying for hunger and may support thyroid health, which is important for keeping your metabolism working correctly. I use coconut oil exclusively when I need to cook food in oil. The oil comes in a solid form but melts under heat and can be used for frying. I cook my burgers and eggs in coconut oil and they taste wonderful.

Foods High In Protein

These foods make the body work harder to break them down than low protein foods and that requires more energy. As you are eating you are also burning energy. High protein foods also help to make you feel full so you may eat less.

Water For Weight Loss

Water is essential for everyone, so you are going to have to drink it regardless. Most studies suggest that a normal healthy water intake is 8 ounces, 8 times a day. If you are exercising, then you may need more.

Water is said by some, to be a nutrient in it’s own right and it performs various functions, such as eliminating waste via urination, perspiration and bowel movements. Water keeps your temperature normal, lubricates and cushions joints and protects sensitive tissues. Water is also believed to boost metabolism. If you are in a weight loss program, all of the above functions of water are extremely useful to you.

I believe that the type of water that is consumed is also important. Distilled water has its uses but I would not recommend it for a weight loss program. Despite the fact that in general, plastic bottles are used to supply us with the natural spring water found in stores, I believe that this is the best option for drinking water. Filtering your own water is probably the ideal, but the equipment is very expensive if you want to do it right.

So, what can you do with all of this information?  Here’s a suggestion:

 

  • Sit down and either buy a diet plan or formulate your own, incorporating several of the foods that are discussed above. In my opinion, the food and drink must be as natural as you can get in order for the plan to work to best effect. Because of the modern way of life, if you are formulating the plan yourself,  it is advisable to plan out every meal for the whole week, every week.

 

  • Research exercise routines, pick one that you like the sound of and start it. I would recommend some aerobics and also a weight training routine because muscle burns more energy than fat and the aim is to burn energy. You don’t necessarily need to invent your own plan, you can look for existing plans that incorporate aerobics and weights and buy the plan.

 

 

If after a few weeks, the plan isn’t working for you, add something to it or replace an element of the plan.

 

It takes a lot of effort and knowledge for a person to effectively devise their own weight loss plan. The easy way is to buy a diet plan, buy an exercise plan and incorporate the herbs and foods (all or some) discussed above, into the plans.

 

The bottom line is that whatever you do, you have to follow the plan. You will also have to tweak the plan to fit your body, expenses and schedule.

 

I also think that a mindful approach to weight loss will help enormously. Meditation, affirmations and yoga are all great.

Water For Health

Is drinking water necessary for good health?, the answer is yes, but the water that you drink needs to be as pure as possible. It seems that obtaining untainted food and drink is virtually impossible today but just by attempting to obtain the most high quality, natural food and drink products will help.

Water makes up approximately 60% of the male adult body and 55% of the female adult body. We are constantly losing water from our bodies throughout the day and this needs to be replaced. An average human loses 4.5 to 6.5 lbs of water during the day through exhalation, perspiration, urination and consumption of heavily processed foods.

 

How Much Water?

The general health industry advice is 8 ounces of water, 8 times a day. There is a wide range of views on daily intake from independent researchers but the 8 ounces, 8 times a day seems to be a minimum. Studies have shown that we cannot survive more that a few days without drinking water but we can survive for a few weeks without food. The required daily water intake for maximum bodily efficiency is (as is most everything else in life) highly dependent on the individual.

Can I Drink Too Much Water?

Studies say yes. The medical term for this is Hyponatremia ( low sodium in the blood) and this can occur due to the amount of water you drink over a short period of time rather than the total amount during a day. In basic terms, a large amount of water consumed in a short period of time will lower blood sodium levels and could, in the most severe cases, lead to death. I would think that moderation is the key to avoiding this issue.

The Purity of Water

There are many factors affecting the purity of our drinking water. The Municipal supply to our houses and businesses has chemicals added to it due to the “purification process” and the pipes carrying the water can also add unwanted chemicals into the supply. Fluoride is added to many Municipal water supplies. The Fluoride is added to prevent tooth decay but there are rumors that it is not effective in preventing this. Some Countries have banned, rejected or stopped fluoridation of their water supply. China has banned it’s use, most Western European countries have stopped fluoridation and Japan has rejected it’s use due to it’s toxicity. My opinion?, I would rather that Fluoride was left out of the water supply and I’ll take care of my teeth myself.

Obtaining Pure Water

I have researched this topic in a casual manner on and off. I buy bottled “spring” water from the local grocery stores to drink and use for cooking but I know that the quality ranges from good, to variable, to suspect.  The “spring” water is usually packaged in plastic bottles and the chemicals in the plastic can tend to leech into the water. The claim of “pure spring water” in bottled water products has been shown to be suspect in certain cases and the Fluoride content is unknown. I think that the only sure way of obtaining the purest water is to filter it yourself. There are several companies that supply whole house filters for residential use and these filters can remove heavy metals, pharmaceutical residue, fluoride, bacteria and more. The best, most effective filter systems are expensive but do I aim to install one eventually.

Conclusion

The body needs water and at the end of the day, drinking any water ( that is not infected) is better than not drinking it. We should strive to drink the purest, most untainted water daily, but this can be expensive, time consuming and involve much research. My personal opinion is that drinking water in it’s basic form, not in the form of coffee, tea, flavored drinks etc, is essential. If you are carry out fitness training or have a physical job, then my experience tells me that you need more than the 8 ounces, 8 times a day in order to function efficiently. It is a pity that we can’t get the pure drinking water that we need to function at optimum performance easily, but “it is what it is”.
