Jon:  

So we’ve got Helen from New South Wales has a question about –

Helen:  

Hi, Jon.

Jon:  

Hi how are you?

Helen:  

Hi. Pretty good, pretty good thank you.

Jon:  

Great. How can I help you?

Helen:  

Yeah, I have a couple of very quick questions. The first one is just to do with flax seed versus other sources of Omega 3 such as fish oil. What would happened, I was on the fish oil and that was fine, and I just had a few weeks where I was tight financially so I just got some organic flax seed and started to grind it up and I find that actually suppresses my appetite. Well, I think that’s what it’s doing. It’s doing something.

Jon:  

It will do that. Let’s face it, I mean, you’re talking about — when you talk about you’re financially pressed — but fish oil is — probably you’re talking about spending $30 a month on fish oils and maybe $5 a month on flax seeds, so $35 on something that’s going to give you an oil, that’s going to totally change the way your body functions.

And let me just explain to you why it’s so crucial to get Omega 3s in different forms. Flax seeds are one form of Omega 3 and fish oils are another, and you need as many different types of Omega 3s as possible. But let me explain why Omega 3s are so crucial to weight loss.

Omega 3s are a specific type of fat. It’s called an essential fat. And it’s an essential fat that used to be very plentiful in our diet thousands of years ago, but it’s almost nearly extinct in our diet right now because they get corrupted so easily. Now this oil — every cell of our body, all of our brain cells and every other cell of our body is covered with a layer of fat. And the types of fats we eat these days are saturated fats, fried, oils, these fats are a hard type of fat that causes the cells of our body to be coated with a hard kind of layer.

Now the cells in our body need to communicate with all the other cells of our body with something called hormones. Hormones are chemical messengers that travel through your body and communicate from one cell to another. How does your heart know how to communicate with your liver or how does your stomach know how to communicate with your brain? How does your brain know how much fat you have on your body? All this is communicated through hormones traveling through your body. Your fat cells communicate to your brain cells how much fat there is with hormones, your stomach communicates to your brain how much you’ve eaten through hormones, your heart communicates to your brain how much beating it’s doing and your brain communicates to your heart how much beating it should be doing all through hormones. So these hormones travel through your body and they communicate with the cells.

Now if the cells of your body are covered with a hard layer, the hormones can’t communicate as effectively with your cells, so your body just can’t communicate properly with itself. It’s almost like you’ve got a car and using the wrong oil and everything’s getting all corrupted, and the worst place where it affects you the worse is in your brain cells because when your brain cells get covered with a hard layer of fat then neurotransmitters can’t communicate properly then people end up having bipolar disease and then they take anti-depressants and that causes an even bigger rebound affect and it’s all because the oil that we’re using and that’s coating the cells of our body is a hard oil.

So over a six-month period, if every single day you’re adding Omega 3s in the form of flax seeds and fish oils, over a six-month period all the cells of your body get covered with this really permeable soft fat that allows for really proper communication with the hormones so your body’s running smoother. And from a weight loss perspective what it does, is it reduces inflammation which turns off the FAT programs, because the hormones that cause inflammation activate the FAT programs. And it also gets your body to become very sensitive to the hormone insulin so that your insulin level’s lower and your body is able to stabilize its blood sugar.

Now the reason why that’s so important is because insulin is the fat storage hormone, and when our bodies are covered with this hard layer of fat, when all the cells are covered with a hard type of fat, our bodies stop listening to insulin and that causes our insulin levels to raise and because insulin is the fat storage hormone, what it does is if your insulin levels raise, it turns off your body’s ability to burn fat. Because if the fat storage hormone is in your blood stream, you’re not going to store fat and burn fat at the same time, so you’re in fat storage mode.

So you get into this perpetual type of fat storage mode where you’re unable to burn fat and people go on a diet and they think it’s calories in, calories out, but nobody even asks the question, “Do I even have the ability to burn fat?” And when your insulin levels are too high, you lose the ability to burn fat.

Now the way to get your insulin levels lower one way, well two ways. One is to reduce stress because stress causes your body to stop listening to insulin, and we talk about that a lot. The other is to add Omega 3s to your diet. So over a six-month period, your insulin levels lower, you become very efficient in burning fat, and that’s why usually following this approach, you lose weight quicker later on because you become more and more efficient at burning fat. So yes, there’s really nothing more important than spending that $30/35 a month, whatever it is, on Omega 3 fatty acids in as many different ways that you can and sprinkle it on all your foods, take fish oils, look for foods that have it and always ask yourself, at every meal, where’s the Omega 3s?

Helen:  

Yeah, okay, will do.

Jon:  

So I hope that answers that question.

Helen:  

I’ve been struggling though. Have I got another minute? Sorry.

Jon:  

Yeah, sure. Go ahead.

Helen:  

I started putting on weight when I was about 19. Prior to that, I was slim and very attractive. I’ve just been thinking about it basically. Like, what’s done this? So at around that age I broke up with a boyfriend and I had no tools to deal with it. I didn’t cope well at all. So I reacted the only way I knew how, with my sexuality, and became quite promiscuous. And then drugs and alcohol came in to numb the pain.

Then 10 years later I was about 28 and got away from that and pulled my life together, but was left with again and started to lose weight again. It was just up and down basically with my weight. What I’ve discovered with your method, is that when I try and visualize myself thin, and there’s been so many times to choose from, it bring up shame and it brings up pain, and I don’t trust myself.

Jon:  

I understand.

Helen:  

I heard another lady talking to you about a similar issue, but hers was more to do with not wanting people looking at her. Well, that’s not — that wasn’t mine. It’s more my own shame. I’ve hurt people in the past.

Jon:  

And you’ve done things that you weren’t happy with.

Helen:  

Oh, God, yeah.

Jon:  

Yeah.

Helen:  

Yeah.

Jon:  

And you’re afraid that if you –

Helen:  

I’ve got about 10 kilos to lose now, and so when I’m overweight I’m not — I don’t have that risk. I mean, now I’ve been married for 15 years today actually. And we have children and it’s all fine, but this weight is still here and it’s a constant, constant struggle to me. And I’m rapidly putting it back on. I lost 16 kilos about a year and-a-half ago. I put five back on immediately.

Jon:  

Well, you’ve got this issue, okay.

Helen:  

So I’m not quite sure what to do.

Jon:  

Yeah, yeah. Well, it’s important to understand the issue. You’ve got an issue where you have very unpleasant associations with being thin, both from the actions you’ve taken and from the way people have reacted to you and you’ve got a lot of fear surrounding what’s going to happen when you’re thin. So what I’d like to do with you, right now, is just create a vision, if we could.

Helen:  

Okay.

Jon:  

Okay. First thing I want you to do is I just want you to imagine that you’re in your perfect, most beautiful, most ideal weight. Okay? Can you do that?

Helen:  

Yes.

Jon:  

Okay. Now just tell me — let’s just talk about what’s coming up right now. You’re beautiful, you’re in a perfect, ideal weight. What’s coming up?

Helen:  

Oh, I don’t even want to say.

Jon:  

Yeah. Well, I think it’s going –

Helen:  

What comes up is there’s one particular person knowing that he’s finding me attractive and I don’t want him to find me attractive.

Jon:  

Right.

Helen:  

Because it’s going to cause pain.

Jon:  

To who?

Helen:  

To a lot of people.

Jon:  

Okay.

Helen:  

To a dear friend.

Jon:  

Yeah.

Helen:  

That’s one of them.

Jon:  

That’s what’s coming up?

Helen:  

It’s a combination of others.

Jon:  

Okay. So this is what I’d like to do. So stay in this vision for a minute. I’d like you to be right there. You’re in your perfect, ideal weight, and you’re beautiful, you’re stunning, you’re radiant, you’re glorious. You’re everything you want to be, okay? Stay with that. Are you there?

Helen:  

Yes.

Jon:  

And there’s this person.

Helen:  

Yeah.

Jon:  

He’s finding you utterly, irresistibly attractive, okay?

Helen:  

Yeah.

Jon:  

Okay. So this is what I’d like you to do. Now what I’d like you to do is I’d like you to be there radiating your beauty and then just look at that person, and look at him with communicating a feeling to him through your eyes that, yes, it’s okay for you to be as attracted to me as you want, that’s your business, but me, right now, I’m totally settled and centered in exactly who I am and totally happy with exactly the way my life is. And while it’s okay for you to be attracted to me, that’s your issue, it’s not mine, and maybe I feel love for you as a person and I respect you and I honor your journey, that’s your issue, not mine.

Just see yourself being very confident, very radiant and feeling really good about yourself, just settled knowing that it’s okay to be as attractive as you want and it’s okay for other people to be attracted to you. And you can just be really settled that everything in your life is perfect exactly the way it is, nothing has to change. So can you imagine that feeling? Almost like you’re this evolved confident, beautiful, goddess that just can allow people to be attracted, but that doesn’t affect you at all. Whatever people — people can be attracted or not, that’s their business, and you are totally centered in yourself and feeling totally confident and it doesn’t sway you one way or the other. Can you imagine feeling that?

Helen:  

Yeah, that’s wonderful.

Jon:  

Okay. What I’d like you to do is I’d like you to keep this vision and I’d like you to have this vision and take it with you as you go to sleep at night, and let this vision of this goddess, confident, radiant, beautiful and totally content within herself, not letting anybody else’s feelings or attractions or opinions sway you one way or the other. And that’s you, and just take that vision with you as you go to sleep at night, and each day, more and more, you become that vision, you become that person. Let it be a magnet that draws you every day closer and closer to becoming that vision. Okay? Can you do that?

Helen:  

That’s great. Thank you so much because it’s been really plaguing me and it’s only been since I’ve been doing the visualization that I’ve even been aware of it.

Jon:  

I know, and it has to be addressed. Just like when I was talking to the first caller, it has — if you’ve got an issue that’s keeping you from losing weight, it has to be addressed because you always undermine your efforts until it gets addressed and this is how you can address it. But one other thing I’d like you to do is I’d like you to listen to my Living Goddess Meditation.

Helen:  

I’ve got it.

Jon:  

You’ve got it?

Helen:  

Yeah, I’ve got it, yeah.

Jon:  

Okay. Have you listened to it?

Helen:  

I have a few times. Not that many, but I have a few times and I’ve also got the other one.

Jon:  

Morning visualization?

Helen:  

The meditation music. I’ve got everything you’ve done basically.

Jon:  

Okay. So what I’d like you to do is find a time for a couple of weeks. I’d like you to have this visualization. As you’re going to sleep at night, just really connect with it every day, and then in the morning — is there some time during the day, best in the morning, that you can listen to the Living Goddess Meditation on a daily basis?

Helen:  

Hold on.

Jon:  

I’m asking you is there?

Helen:  

I get uncomfortable. Pardon?

Jon:  

Well, I’m asking you is there certain –

Helen:  

I get uncomfortable.

Jon:  

What do you get uncomfortable about?

Helen:  

Yeah. I guess having that Goddess behind me or with me. I think I’m faking it.

Jon:  

Yeah. Well, just imagine that it’s to you. That it’s the highest aspect of you. This person that’s going to come in — this part of you that’s just so radiant and confident and beautiful and unswayable. Just imagine that that’s you and all you’re doing is just bringing the most purest, highest form of you into this life. Can you do that?

Helen:  

Thank you, Jon. Yeah, I can.

Jon:  

Okay. So what I’d like you to do is I’d like you to listen to it. Listen to it the same time of the day every day for two weeks, okay?

Helen:  

Yeah.

Jon:  

Can you do that? Okay, good. Then have this vision and that should take care of that issue for you. That should take care of the issue. All right?

Helen:  

All right.

Jon:  

Check back with me in January on my webinar, okay?

Helen:  

Love to. Thank you very much, Jon.

Jon:  

Okay. Thank you.

Helen:  

Merry Christmas, all the best.

Jon:  

Merry Christmas to you, too, sweetheart. Bye.
