More than 10 years ago, my doctor said I was overweight. I made multiple attempts to lose weight. For instance, eating diet pills, doing yoga, jogging, sauna baths in slimming centres and replacing lunch with slimming coffee. Unfortunately, these were not effective. My weight only dropped by one to two kilos and I would regain the lost weight quickly. Dieting also weakened my body’s constitution and caused my skin to become dull.
In 2014, I came to know about Bodhi Meditation. Back then, my purpose was not to lose weight but to achieve spiritual elevation. However after learning the “Full Prostration”, my weight dropped by 10 kilos within 6 months of daily practice. This made me extremely happy! Since then, I fell in love with prostration and would practice diligently everyday.
For the past 3 years, my weight has remained in the healthy range and I no longer feel troubled over the need to lose weight. I look more radiant and need not rely on collagen supplements to tone up my skin. Now I look good even without makeup and can leave the house simply with just having lipstick on. My friends are very curious about my transformation.
Besides, for the last 30 to 40 years, I could only sleep two to three hours each night. Since I started practicing Energy Bagua in 2015, I can sleep well for 10 hours every night. Gradually my dark eye circles lightened.
Since meditating, I feel more at peace. Even when my family members raise their voice at me, I will still speak to them in a calm manner. My family has since become more cohesive and harmonious. Although I am 69 years old, I feel young mentally. I am healthy, energetic and happy! I introduced a few friends to Bodhi Meditation hoping that they will persevere in their practice and experience for themselves the benefits of meditation.
