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

 

I’m falling…falling….falling

Today is not a good day.  Lost a good friend, it is rainy and miserable and so am I.

What in the world can I replace food with to comfort me in tough times??? Still looking.
