why you have destructive habits
Most people think that emotional eating is a way to numb difficult feelings like stress, anxiety, and fear.
But one important thing I’ve learned from my own journey to heal my emotional eating and helping hundreds of other women do the same over the last 10 years is that emotional eating also numbs your power.
One of my favorite quotes from Marianne Williamson speaks to this specifically. She said, “[Y]our deepest fear is not that [you] are inadequate. [Y]our deepest fear is that [you] are powerful beyond measure.”
This is especially true for driven women on a mission like yourself.
The truth is that deep down, at the root of your emotional eating, sits a fear of being connected to your own personal power.
This is why so many deep feelers and creative people turn to destructive habits, like emotional eating, to dull the experience of their power, rather than embracing it, channeling it, and enhancing it.
Food has become the way you numb, dilute and diffuse your power because being powerless feels familiar, “safe” even.
This is why all work we do together here at Escape From Emotional Eating involves increasing your ability to plug into, channel, and stay connected to your power rather than dulling, numbing, or disconnecting from it.
How do exactly do we do that? First, we increase your emotional fitness and stamina with the tools and processes I teach, like Digesting Emotions®.
When you increase your capacity to feel, through our work together, you’ll no longer need to run to food (or alcohol) to avoid feeling what is really happening.
Your body will become a clean, clear vessel – a vehicle – for the Divine. You will become a force for positive change at work, at home, and in all aspects of your life.
Because when you heal your relationship with food, you heal your relationship with yourself, and everything in your life gets better because of it.
So the next time you use food to dull or numb whatever you are feeling, remember you aren’t just numbing the dark. You are numbing your power too.
