Have you ever been in the situation where you’ve got food in the house and you just can’t let it be : it whispers to you , prods at you, worms its way into your every thought until you just have to have it? Maybe you even have to keep going until it’s completely gone.
I’m sure we’ve all been there and know what it’s like not to be able to let food be! And here’s my take on this : if you just can’t let food be, chances are you’re just not letting yourself be! Chances are, you’re actually using food to prevent yourself from BEING.
Well, here’s a revolutionary thought for you to try on (especially if you consider yourself to be an emotional eater) : what if you could just let yourself be?
What if you were able to let yourself be fully present to your inner experiences : allowing (even welcoming!) emotions, thoughts and feelings to come and go , whatever they were ? What if you were able to be fully present to your outer experiences, whether these experiences matched up to your idea of how life SHOULD be or not? This is what I mean by just letting yourself be.
My prediction is this : let yourself be, I mean really be – and you’ll always have a CHOICE about whether you let food be or not.
To set yourself free , just let yourself be!
(And if you’re not quite sure how to let yourself be in this way, I’ll be posting more about this soon 🙂 )
