ROUND AND ROUND THE MULBERRY BUSH

Self-Forgiveness

I am learning that my addiction to sugar is just a coping habit to cover up deep rooted feelings that I do have the courage to face.  When life throws a curve ball and I get hit smack in the stomach I run to my comfort foods to protect me from feeling the pain. The deep rooted neuro-pathways that I formed long ago as a child when I was hurt, are even deeper now and that is what is generated when something reminds me of the pain of loss. As I reflect upon this I stumbled upon a belief that I have harbored all my conscious days..that I do not deserve.  And this belief is so prominent in my psychic memories that I draw to me all manner of situations to validate it.  My higher self dropped a hint to my conscious mind while I was reading a book about how loving the universe is.  Yeah Right, was my first response..which led me to the core belief of not deserving.  I have blocked the love of the universe by numbing my feelings with food.  So this is one step closer to healing.  I found a great exercise that helped to uncover the root cause.

RADICAL FORGIVENESS

Food Addiction: Is It Real?

Here’s another shocking fact: Sugar is eight times as addictive as cocaine.

Being addicted to sugar and flour is not an emotional eating disorder. It’s a biological disorder, driven by hormones and neurotransmitters that fuel sugar and carb cravings—leading to uncontrolled overeating. This is not a limited phenomenon. It’s the reason nearly 70 percent of Americans and 40 percent of kids are overweight. In one study, Harvard scientists found that a high-sugar milkshake (compared to a low-sugar one) not only spiked blood sugar and insulin and led to sugar cravings, but it caused huge changes in the brain. The sugar lit up the addiction center in the brain like the sky on the Fourth of July. Think cocaine cookies, morphine muffins, or smack sodas.

ONE FOR THE SUGAR BEAR

And the war goes on, despite everything I know my inner child won in search of comfort after an 18 hour grueling day yesterday.  I was up at 6:30 to catch the ferry over to the main land for my beautiful cousins celebration of life.  I had the courage to get up and speak in front over 200 people.  The whole day was walk, talk, walk and talk.  Finally arrived home at midnight.  This morning woke up with a huge hunger.  So instead of wrestling with the sugar bear I chose passionate compassion and fed the beast.  Now I have 2 choices: I can beat myself up all day OR I can forgive myself and start over.

COMING OUT OF THE CAVE

Yesterday I visited with 2 wise owl friends and the discussion was about shutting down our feelings.  When I found this picture for my blog it was perfect.  I have always felt for a long time that I just switched off.  For the past 4 months I just sat in my chair doing NOTHING.  At the beginning of November I had made a commitment months earlier to go back to my home town and babysit my granddaughter while the kids took a break and went to Mexico.  Something clicked.  It was very subtle and brief.  An instant decision to start living again and I stared to feel alive again.  Now the work begins as I realize that the loss of my home and dream back in May of 2017 due to a betrayal, knocked my socks off and I was overwhelmed with pain so I just flipped my switch. While back home last week, my higher self or intuitive guides (whatever your preference is to name it) whispered enough is enough.  It is time to take action and change.  Today I can feel the flicker of my old flame of passion and I am flipping the switch back on and coming out of my cave. This article by Luna and Sol really helped.  13 Signs You’re Struggling with Emotional Numbness

LOVE IS GRATITUDE AND ATTITUDE

In Canada we celebrate THANKS GIVING this weekend.  It is a perfect time to stop and give conscious thought to what we are grateful for.  A tool I learned long ago was using a gratitude journal.  This can really uplift your vibration especially in these changing times. I remember after loosing my beloved husband on Thanks Giving weekend when I was a very young, and our world was instantly turned upside down, was to line the walls of our hall with flip chart paper and each of us had to add one thing we were grateful for and soon we had a hall filled with flip charts listing  love and appreciation for what we did have.  This really helped to heal our loss.

One of our conversations around the dinner table was of course, the tragedy in Las Vegas.  What came out of that conversation is the amazing selflessness of the instant human reaction to shield and protect others.  I choose to focus on that.  You have the power of healing love inside you, so choose that.  HAPPY THANKS GIVING.

 

LOVE FOR THOUGHT

da7644252cfd8101559590a4d2ea6d3b--wild-women-the-goalRemember the old saying garbage in garbage out.? Is it because we live in a world of duality that there are so many mixed messages for our minds to sort through/  What if it was only one thought and that is the thought of love.  Love for all that is and ever was.  Unity consciousness in this day and age of chaos and uncertainty.  I ask you to take up the challenge and look for the beauty and light in every adversity.  Are these horrific things happening on and to mother earth there to push us to grow in love and light?

CONSCIOUS LOVE

art-of-conscious-love-workshop-portland-oregon-photos-415995As we send healing love to the flood and fire victims always seek LOVE in all things.  There is a higher plan and I believe it is designed by Divine Intelligence.  Practices Love Consciousness as much as you can because those vibrations have the power to heal.  As you watch the news on the disasters focus on the human heroes that give selflessly to help others.  This is love in action.  Focus on that, as all this is bringing us into unity consciousness.
