Food is Energy

“As I am exploring the nonmaterial world I am examining food, our bodies and everything  physical AS ENERGY. This energy is fluctuating so it is movable and changeable by the thoughts we think. In a sense our thoughts become a preview of what will manifest. So if you say to yourself, “I just look at those chocolate chip cookies and gain weight,” guess what? You are setting that possibility in motion. Are you thinking like velcro or like teflon?

Mind Creates Matter

I am sitting in my Sacred Garden listening to the rain as I imagine it cleaning away my old thoughts. (Think of your negative thoughts about food and weight). I freely let them go. What if I don’t fill this space with any thoughts and see what the universe brings me today. If I do add my thoughts I will keep them focused on what I desire already manifested and let the universe figure out the details of how I get to my desired outcome. I am the sculptor and the weaver of my form with my thinking. This is what I teach in my Mind/Body program Freedom From Food: a quantum weight loss approach. “I know that my body…

Mental Focus & Weight Loss

Energy Flows Where Your Attention Goes. When you are focusing on a certain food you ate making you fat such as chocolate, bread, cookies, cashews  etc. you are directing  that energy to create that physical reality on your body. When you are focused on your clothes that are too tight you are constantly bringing what you don’t want to you. When you keep checking in on your body to see if you are gaining weight, you are attracting that energy to you. Watchers beware! Its time to Trust your body to eliminate all that it does not need and function in the magnificent way it was created. Freedom From Food.

Weight Loss & The Body Heals Itself

“The natural healing force within us is the greatest force in getting well” (Hippocrates) “People who are thin (meaning in their perfect proportion rely on this pull in the body to always maintain their ideal weight. They never question it. They have a knowing that unneeded food will move right through them and not add extra pounds-and it does! I invite you to think like a thin person for a day and let me know how you do”! “I remember learning about the body’s amazing ability to heal automatically when I was a small child. One day, I fell down and scraped my knee. Seeing blood on my knee was scary. I wasn’t sure what it meant or what would…

Weight Loss & Building a Loving Inner Adult

Starting in my 30s, I began the journey of developing my own healthy Inner Adult. At first, I resented taking on a parenting job that should have been done by my father and mother. I felt that I had been an adult all of my life, taking care of my parents’ disowned needs and protecting my sisters. I perceived that I had been robbed of my childhood, and now I was being asked to be a parent again, this time to myself. When would the time ever come for someone to take care of me and be interested in what I needed? However, there was no one else to do the job. My Inner Child was wounded and bleeding. I cared about her so I signed on, willing to build a personal relationship with her.

I remember journaling to get in touch with my Inner Child’s feelings. In my first communication, she told me that she thought that I was very boring and that spending time with anyone else would be more exciting than spending time with me. She said that she felt completely alone in this life. Even when we were together, she felt disconnected from the whole world and experienced that no one knew or cared if she was dead or alive.

Bingeing or Inner Child Connection

As one looks further into bingeing, there is a desperation about it. When I am reaching for M&Ms it is to give myself something I want NOW as I am not getting positive feedback from the outside world or myself that is telling me that I am loved or that I am good enough in some way. Therefore, I am not feeling connected to good thoughts and I am often depending on getting them from the outside world. It is important to learn that when this is happening, we are usually being triggered back to a childlike state that is really desiring to receive some positive feedback from a parent. Since most of us didn’t get that in our childhood,…

Anxiety and The Inner Child

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…

Weight Loss & Creating Sacred Space

Since I know that thoughts create in the body and in my life, I get up every morning and in my wonderful garden I first send loving thoughts to myself and my body. Do you have an every day practice to nurture yourself? This is such an essential key to weight loss. I have found that if I go out in my garden every day and turn my attention on the good things about myself and the positive things I am grateful for in my life a better flow happens in my day. This loving practice is the emotional mental food that sustains me and helps me make better choices in the food I choose to eat. If I can’t…

Binging or Expressing Needs

Without a doubt I know that my bingeing was a way for me to handle the pain of feeling abandoned, unloved, alone, criticized and thinking I was not enough or defective. It soothed the anxiety that all of these emotions stirred up that were too much for me to handle. Maybe you can relate to this. I would love to hear from you. I wrote this passage in my book Freedom From Food. “Food is the glue that holds my fragmented parts together so I look whole and no one can see I am really in pieces. Part of me knows that I am hiding in the shadows of my isolate world, where things are not as they seem on…

Binging and Emotions

I noticed the other day that I was eating my old favorite binge food M&Ms. It is unusual for me after 30 years of being healed from my Freedom From Food program not to make a more advanced choice of food that makes me feel better. I am aware that I have been looking at the faults in others. I am feeling that my friends are not acting as I want them to and I am noticing the ways my boyfriend is not doing what I want either. I am focusing on everyone outside of myself and their faults. Have you ever done that? Having been healed of my weight problem for 30 yrs, I have learned at these times…

Childhood Obesity: A Tip to Help

Statistics show that 1 out of 3 children and teens in the U.S. are overweight or obese. In addition to food and exercise, it is important to begin to teach children to connect to their body and to trust in the healing aspects of their body system. This healing system was set up from birth in every child’s blueprint and includes the natural function of eliminating excess food and weight. Begin by pointing out that when they get a cut and it bleeds, it then forms a scab and goes away!
