Day 13 – Emotions are a Gift of Healing.
Another cloudy yet beautiful morning pondering on how did I ever get on the dieting cycle?
I think most of the weight loss centres intention started out to support people to lose weight but within a very short time realised for the business model to work people would need to buy their brand of diet products that started a multibillion dollar industry that may now have an agenda about people not healing the underlying issues. They want people to keep returning 2 -3 years down the track if not sooner.
They sell lifetime packages hopefully to gain loyalty when they need to return next time. They really make their money on the food and support products we all buy. I have no issue with people making money but imagine the response from customers and the referrals that would follow if they could deal with the underlying self-worth or fear of success issues as well. Wow would that be worth attending.
The better answer would be to have emotional intelligence as a class in school. Start with the healing before the physical issue manifests into a reality.
Enough of the soap box, I can see if we understood to deal with our emotions and not stuff them down and lay concrete on top we would have a lot less dis-ease.
As I have mentioned numerous times emotions are a gift that can allow healing on the inside with ease. As children if our feelings are acknowledged instead of comments like ‘stop crying you baby”. This was said too many boys as a way of making them more manly. They learned that to show emotion is wrong, must stuff it down and after many years they have trouble feeling or dealing with life challenges that appear. They did not learn to understand and release the emotion that is now held in the body they are holding all the anger, pain, sadness etc. all undealt with emotion.
What was said to you that stopped you believing in you? Who stole your dreams? How did you feel at the time and how did you respond at the time. What have you been telling yourself all these years after that occurred. Maybe who do I think I am to do xyz or I really am not smart enough to do ABC.
Let’s look at another possibility, A teacher says XYZ that has you feeling small and worthless, you feel, angry, embarrassed and do not hear that she is attempting to highlight something you did that is hindering you succeeding from her opinion. All that you can think about is your friends that are listening to this and what they might be thinking.
I am here to tell you, it is not about what they are or aren’t thinking it is about how you are feeling. Those feeling were within you or they would not have presented. We may not remember what incident or drama they are attached to and we do not need to know anything other than it is time to surrender these emotions to a higher power (whatever that is for you, God, Allah, Budda, Universal power, Love) and ask for help and support. Where else are you feeling vulnerable? What action do you need to make to feel safe? Who can you talk too for support? These would have been valuable question to examine in the moment of the incident. No time like the present ask the questions now.
When we release the feeling attached to these or any story we can be free to BE anything that we can imagine. You can achieve and DO anything that brings you joy, hope, optimism so dare to have ago.
Dare to put your old way of being behind you and forge a life that supports your dreams and passion.
Excess weight is a symptom of being out of alignment with your authentic self. It is a journey to uncover you magnificent authentic self, a journey well worth endeavouring on.
It is always “All about you” and the vibration you are emitting to the world. If we emit self-love and strong self-worth backed by travelling a path that delivers our gifts to others, magic will happen to bring joy and love into your life.
Have a great, prosperous day
Day 6. Learning to value the NOW!
Feeling good this morning, quite peaceful and content with where I am at, moving forward one step at a time.
I hold my vision of BEING slim trim and feeling terrific, I close my eyes and it is already a reality, I feel the ease of movement and the enthusiasm in my step. Life is so interesting so many ups and downs which accumulated together is a necessity to grow and evolve.
Interesting how we do not appreciate what we have when it is right in front of your eyes. I have realised until we have experienced the opposite it is very hard to understand the NOW if you are unconscious to the game of life. The game where the mind/ego would like to think it is in control and eventually you end up unwittingly giving it control. Then it wants to stay feeling important and to do so starts to relay and opinion of every aspect of your life every minute. That “little voice” in your head that continually chatters and the majority of the time is running YOUR life. If you are wondering what voice I am talking about? I am talking about the one that just asked the last question.
There is another part of you that is being ignored the majority of the time because we are too busy or no time, maybe our debt is so high we are stressed to the max. Whatever the reason is, we are unable to hear our own “Internal guidance system” that is trying to help us out of the mess we have created or if we are alert support us to avoid turmoil all together.
Have you had a thought about a friend and 2 mins later they ring? Have you walked into a business meeting and noticed your body shiver and anxiety wash over you? Have you had sense your young child was not well but had to wait a day before the doctor could pick up what was wrong? If you have answered YES to any of these then you have experienced a connection with you higher self.
To get more understanding and to be able to listen to this internal wisdom we need to slow down. When I look at the majority of people they are speeding up due to the demands of the material world. Who do you think will benefit? Not your family or your health, the large corporations and the tax man together they have sold us the illusion that we need more things as Robert Kiyosaki author of Rich Dad Poor Dad called Do Dads.
In truth what we need more of is connection; this journey I am endeavouring to explore is to have more connection with me on all levels. To be in integrity with what my life journey has been about I do not believe I could have been studying life success and spirituality for 20 years for no PURPOSE.
One thing I have learned you cannot give what you do not have so first I had to learn to love and value me. This took me learning to manage my “Little Voice” that has an opinion on everything because it fears losing its level of importance. I needed to reassure ‘IT” that all was ok but the game was slightly shifting. “IT’ was important but as long as it served me and did not try to take back the driver seat. I have taught “IT” I love it as a passenger. Now we are getting into alignment with my hearts journey.
Enough for today, Have an amazing day remember for 5 mins at least “Stop to smell the roses”
Journey to Surrendering 12 kg
Wow no headache this morning, head just feels a bit heavy. Yesterday I found myself pondering on how often I would unconsciously choose to eat. Breakfast that extra piece of toast or 2 and then off for a wander down the shops, stop for a cup of tea and yes I probably order something sweet. It would not be long before I am back in front of the TV or computer and think about a cup of tea and probably a biscuit. Maybe there was a lolly grabbed from the door of the fridge. The day continues in the similar vein, go visit a friend and socialise over food and drink. Meet up with family and friends and eat. Watch TV or go to the movies time to eat.
The majority of the time I am not hungry, I have attached eating and being out and with friends as enjoyable. Take away the friends and I am left with a habit that says eating is enjoyable even when I don’t like cooking. I find I end up eating anything and have associated that as being enjoyable. When in truth I am eating stuff I don’t enjoy but has just become a habit
All good! This is a journey of discovery that is leading me to some bigger questions. Now I am asking myself WHY I would be doing these actions.
Even the process of digesting food regularly would be using a lot of my energy. Being overweight makes it harder to move around with ease so gives me excuse not to do exercise and get those endorphins flowing through my body. Could it be boredom or perhaps I am not living in integrity of who I am really know myself to BE. The latter instantly rings true.
To remember you are a being of unlimited potential that you have the ability to create all that you desire especially if it impacts the planet in a positive way can be overwhelming. All the old programs that tell you the opposite arise; time to eat would be my old pattern.
The eating pushes down the fear of what will people think, what if I fail and make a fool of myself. How will my life change? Now I am of the opinion who really cares? The majority of people hardly have time to care about themselves let alone be truly interested in me. As I mentioned yesterday “It is all about me” Do I really care about me and my life? Am I willing to stand up and share what I learn that could add value to other people who are willing to wake up to their own individual potential? Am I willing to honour all the amazing teachers who have supported my journey?
When we live our lives disconnected from our own individual potential and the passion we feel deep within, we will be sure to stay asleep to the patterns that have been holding us down.
Eating for me is obviously one. I remember being diagnosed with ulcers in my small bowel and a close friend told me I would need to drastically change my diet. My instant response was that it would be impossible to drop meat, sugar, white bread etc. even if it meant my death. When I look back at this and question am I addicted to the food that is so easily obtained these days? I know the answer is yes and that is OK because everything has bought me to this moment.
What would happen if I started to live my passion to inspire others to follow their heart? If I shared my journey of this game I call life, how differently would I feel? Well I have started here and I feel good, I understand those that are ready to awaken to their own potential will be the ones that will find my story. Thank you for coming back and sharing my journey and insights.
Have an amazing day. Send me your questions, perhaps we can turn our life around together.
