A few days ago I realized that I was feeling so nervous and anxious inside. I had been for a few days. I inquired inwardly to see if something was going on with me relationally, emotionally, or was I picking up something from the greater collective? Whatever it was my body was letting me know that something wasn’t right. The unknown is the hardest thing for all of us eaters. Food is my old way to calm these uncomfortable feelings. Although I don’t gain weight from food any more I still need to handle anxiety when it comes up in the ebb and flow of my life. Are you feeling anxious lately? Are you needing the NURTURING MOTHER inside of you to stay close and let you know that everything is going to be ok and remind you of the wonderful special being you are? Remember its all about connection and healing the feelings of being alone and unloved.
Learning to hold the tension of uncomfortable feelings rather than reacting is essential as you put in the daily actions of saying and doing loving things for yourself. These are some things to try:
“Listen to what your INNER CHILD is feeling and try to nurture her and remind her that she is wonderful, stay close to her and her heart, go for a walk, get a massage, take a warm lavender bath, do something fun, pick healthier foods to eat that are easier on your body and pick more positive things to think.” Patricia Bisch
