The mind predominates
‘Being svelte’ has more to do with how you feel than with the mere fat content of your body. The mind comes first in this. As soon as you are svelte in your deeper self, your body automatically follows. The Aurelis-method gives you the opportunity to make this being-svelte become true in your deeper self, without medication and without self-deception.
Your deeper self does what is needed
Can you imagine something more straightforward than ‘eating less’? You don’t need to do anything. In fact, not doing a specific something is what is required. If you look at it this way, of course everybody can do it. As soon as you are svelte inside, you too can do it. As if it’s nothing: in the beginning you don’t even notice that you are making an effort, for the simple reason that you absolutely do not have to make an effort. Your deeper self does what is needed for you. And there it doesn’t mean making an effort. There it is the most natural thing in the world, because your deeper self IS nature inside you.
Finding back your own slim self
By becoming svelte in this way, at the same time you come closer to who you really are and always have been. You find your own svelte self, that you lost somewhere on the way in the midst of the over-eating and all the extra weight. Now you lose weight and in its place you receive your own true self. These together may always have been the goal of your wish to become more svelte…
Imagination: 'circle of excellence'

The lake and the swimmer
In your imagination, you feel yourself becoming one with a lake and at the same time with a swimmer in that lake. The swimmer is a symbol for the part of you that makes conscious decisions. The lake is a symbol for the nature inside yourself. If the swimmer and lake get well tuned to each other, then as a whole person you attain an elegant way that is ideal for you.Play Session
Imagination: pushing away a surplus of food on a cloud
In your imagination, you place all the surplus calorie-rich food that you may otherwise eat on a little cloud that passes by. You give the cloud a firm push and the calories, together with the urge for them, float further and further away from you.Play Session

Positive change of self-image
The image you have of yourself as an irrevocably fat person can be a very burdening factor in your attempts to lose weight. In this session, you will practice changing this self-image, so you can replace it with an image of yourself as a slim person.Play Session
