Sara Lewis ([Link Removed]) is a writer and teacher, but she's alsoan amazing Transformative Meditation coach. She's written and recordedtwo scripts for me, based on changing the way I feel about exercise and diet, and I've had amazing results.

I simply don't want the fatty junk foods I used to crave. It's not that I have to work to resist them, they just aren't on my radar anymore. When I listen to Sara's tape, and visualize walking, it reminds me of my flying dreams. I used to dream about flying all the time. Not in an airplane, not with angel wings, just me, somehow, lifting off all on my own. I'd get off the ground and be happy and pleased until I got higher than the trees, and then I'd panic. My body would fill with terror and I'd wake up in a cold sweat. I'd dream this dream several nights a week.

Then I happened across an article about lucid dreaming, which is where you know you're dreaming, and you deliberately change the dream, from scary to fun, for example. I started training myself to dream lucidly by re-dreaming while awake. I'd lay there in terror in the middle of the night and make myself close my eyes and and put myself back up there above the trees and tell myself that flying so high was fabulous. I told myself how lucky I was. How great it felt to get so high, to see from such a perspective, to feel the air holding me aloft. After I did this a few times, it started to happen in my actual dream. I didn't have to wake up and pretend. It just happened.

I still have flying dreams sometimes, and I enjoy them now. I know I'm dreaming and I let myself sway with the winds and swoop around. It's actually fun. It's the same thing with food and exercise. Sara taught me that I can simply change my mind, swap crisp green salad for potato chips and be happier taking a peaceful walk instead of laying on the couch stuffing my face with an entire sleeve of cookies.

I am amazed at the change in my relationship to food and exercise, amazed that it really is as simple as listening to Sara's script. And now, I think I'll go for a nice walk around the neighborhood. Walking is so pleasant, it almost feels like flying.
