If one sees reality as a reflection of their thoughts, dreams, desires, yes, even their meditations, they begin to realize they have the power to change their reality.
Be prepared when you do change your reality, as it will make others uncomfortable. When others become uncomfortable, they tend to attack, usually using character attacks and or whispering campaigns.

A magic question that best predicts if you’ll be alive and happy at age 80, according to Martin Seligman:
“Is there someone in your life whom you would feel comfortable phoning at four in the morning to tell your troubles to?”

Picture yourself on a boat with others amid a massive storm, and you start to change your reality to your heart reality. It rocks the boat. All the others on the boat shouting stop it. You are rocking the boat. You are putting us all in danger, you could kill somebody, sit down, and be a good boy or girl. But you continue to rock the boat with your heart reality as others become angrier, the character attacks begin, the anger increases, perhaps even to the point of throwing you off the boat.
We are all in the same storm, but not the same boat. What boat did you choose to ride out the storm? Do you have the ability to change boats? Do you want to change boats?

We are all creators of our reality, but many do not understand what reality is or how we created it. I will use an analogy of baking a cake. Let's look at the old-fashioned triple-layer dark chocolate cake called devil's food. Interesting name. Now you are going to create a reality called a chocolate cake. You put all the devil's food ingredients into a bowl and mix very well, pour it into a baking pan, and put it into the oven to bake. If you followed all the directions, it would come out just like the picture on the box of Pillsbury Devil's Food Cake Mix. If you were to have 100 people in a large kitchen making the same cake, you would expect the same results. All the cakes would look beautiful, and they all would all taste the same. Now, what if you had 10 of those people in the kitchen that changed the recipe, say they did not put Sugar, Enriched Bleached Wheat Flour, GMO Soybean Oil, Propylene Glycol Mono, Xanthan Gum, Maltodextrin, and of course Artificial Flavors in their cake. Let's say they made their cake only using natural ingredients. Now, you have all 100 cakes sitting on a very long table, but ten are natural. The cakes are now going to be judged by a panel of judges who are perceived as smart and follow all the rules and are praised by Old Age society and are addicted to sugar. Watch them bite into a piece of that natural cake with no sugar. What would be their reaction? They would probably spit it out. You would be called a loser, a mediocre cook, told to get out of the kitchen.
What ingredients do we put into our reality? When you have a person creating their reality, they are often judged for not having a lot of sugar; mass-consciousness beliefs are frequently sweet to the taste, but deadly to the brain.
How many stand up and create their special recipe and are judged by the old consciousness?

Dieting is a form of self-love: I wish good health for myself, or I wish to be regarded as beautiful and fit - so I will take steps towards that. Perhaps most of us don't think in those words, but underlying our dieting these are frequently the intentions...
That self-love then needs to translate into our food selection: whether dieting or eating "normally", to support yourself - I strongly encourage you to eat only foods that you consider good quality for you
. Does that mean - in your case - organic? Or is conventional just as good in your mind? Does it mean non-pasteurized dairy? Pasture-raised? GMO? Anything goes? McDonalds? Wendy's? Local? Sugar-free? Gluten-free?
What are the best foods you wish you were eating for yourself
- not the highest in price, but the healthiest for you, according to you?
Same goes for snacking
- have around you for snack only those healthy things that you really don't mind snacking on. For example, if you 'recognize' that ice-cream is bad for you but sometimes it's ok - then you probably should not have ice-cream in your fridge at this time, as that would be a mis-treatment of self, stepping away from self-love.
Wishing you well :)
