Our body can often be a reminder to us that our lives are not in alignment with our greater purpose. Have you ever wondered way your back pain came out of no where? Louis Hay has an excellent book "You Can Heal Your Life" which has a section of bodily symptoms and its possible spiritual message. I use this often in my massage practice, and often it will bring understanding to the client. The Psychology of Eating believes the same, that our indigestion, weight issue, heart burn, and so on, all have messages for us, and to best resolve the issue you need to look at and at times heal that issue. Sometimes it is to acknowledge a situation, feel a buried emotion, or tap into your life purpose.
I have for years tried to figure out what my weight had to teach me. I knew I used it for protection, but it has not been until recently that I realized what my weight is also a reminder to live a "bigger" life. Many of us like to stay in our comfort zone where it is familiar and safe. We know what is going on around us. No, our life may not be as we hoped but we do not have to worry about failing, or being judged, or fill in the blank.
So where is your body telling you that you are out of alignment? What baby steps can you take to step back into alignment with your higher purpose?
If you need help and support my Psychology of Eating coaching may be able to help.
