What if you could ‘think’ your way to your ideal body? Or ‘think’ your dream life into reality? Today’s podcast guest, author Jon Gabriel says that you absolutely can. And this isn’t just ‘pie in the sky’ talk, he’s actually done it — he’s the living, breathing proof that this is 100% possible. And in today’s episode he’s spilling all his secrets…

Jon Gabriel is a best-selling author, international weight loss expert, and successful entrepreneur.

If you’ve never heard his story before, it’s insane: Jon shed a whopping 103 kilos in just over two years, and went from being unhappy and unfocused to living his absolute dream life. He attributes his success to a secret weapon that we’ve all got access to, but that most of us don’t know how to use properly: our brains! Yep, when he got his brain on board — which he did using a powerful form of visualisation — everything about his body and life started changing rapidly. Today, he’s pulling back the curtain on the mental techniques that had the biggest impact on his transformation, so that you can try them for yourself and see the difference in your own life.

So if you’d like to know how to add rocket fuel to your visualisations, convince your brain that it’s safe to let go of excess weight, and ‘think’ your dream life into reality, then press play on this life-changing episode… you’ll never think about your brain the same way again!

    I loveddd this Melissa!! I have been looking for someone who speaks about weightloss and visualisation for a long time after hearing Louise Hay mention that weight gain can be to do with protection – thank you for this beautiful interview. Kimberley x

  4. Belinda Gonzalez says:

    This one made me cry! It’s my story too and when I heard him talk I knew this was my path…. I’m going to use his free resources and not jump straight in like I always do and really go inward too see if buying his transformation kit is what I should do…..

  5. Carolyn says:

    Wow!! First ever podcast that I have listened to from The Melissa Ambrosini Show and it didn’t disappoint! Loved it!! Thank you ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

  6. Georgia says:

    Hi Melissa! Love love love all of your work and podcasts. Have listened to them all! I have noticed you talk a lot to your interviewees about the morning ritual and your own: how you get up often around 430am and do two hours of self work …. would love to know what your two hours of self work encompasses? XX

  7. Katie E says:

    This was the most incredible conversation!! The simple realization that I was using food as protection has been absolutely life changing. I have been using the visualization practice since listening to this episode and it’s magical. I’m beginning to feel like the best version of myself. A huge thanks to you Melissa for interviewing wonderful thought leaders and showing us your path – you’re such an inspiration and I look forward to your podcasts each week. Much love, Katie

  8. Michelle says:

    Melissa for some time now you have been inspiring me to look deeper into my own life, health and spiritual awareness. I am so drawn to the incredible people that you share with us each week on your podcasts. Last year you helped me so much when my mother was dying of cancer and this year I am also battling my own breast cancer. Through awareness and information I am taking great care of myself – knocking that ‘Mean Girl’ off my shoulder and becoming a true version of a healthy, vibrant and ready to live life fully and completely ME- My goal is to give you a BIG personal hug one day – filled with love and gratefulness to have found you. xxxx Much love Michelle

  9. Marisa says:

    I’m very interested (as I’ve recently stumbled upon this), when you visualise, do you literally “see” pictures in your mind? I don’t “see” anything, only black and was blown away to learn that most people literally see images, ranging from blurry to moving mental imagery. I thought the idea of counting sheep was just a metaphor. I since have discovered that my lack of visual imagery is called aphantasia.

    Thank you for all the amazing content xxx
