EFT, Food & U

EFT, Food & U

If you are not familiar with EFT, it’s not short for Electronic Funds Transfer…..it’s short for Emotional Freedom Technique or otherwise known as Tapping.

I believe that EFT is an amazing tool to help anyone overcome many things that may be holding them back.

It’s energy physchology which is not new but it is to so many of us. Science, Quantum Physics and backing this more than ever now.

Energy is everywhere and we many not be able to see it, but often we feel it or sense it.  Many times we don’t listen to it when our bodies are telling us no, as our heads get in the way.  It is like electricity, we don’t have to see it for it to work, or even believe it it is there and does it’s thing…….just like energy.

EFT is a simple way is pshychological acupressure.  One taps on varies acupressure points while focusing on the thought, feeling, memory that is leaving a person feel anything but good.

In this short video I share some ideas of using EFT when one is struggling with some food issues as overweight and emotional eating are at an all time high.  I speak from experience of my days of disordered eating.

To learn EFT or understand it more, or have the tapping points, you can download a copy of my EFT Manual which I highly recommend.

Any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me.

And as always please feel free to share this with any friends or leave a comment.

Have a beautiful day!!

It’s Time to Thrive…..

What does Thrive or thriving mean to you and do you feel you are doing it??

Dictionnary definition of thriving – to prosper; be fortunate or successful. To grow or develop vigorously; flourish

I guess you could relate that to nature, if it’s not growing, it’s decaying or dying or barely surviving.

What does thriving mean to you? Have you ever given it some thought before?

Thriving to me means being able to do what really gets me going, jazzes me, gets me fired up, speaks to me, you know when you love what you are doing and the time passes quickly.  It means having choices therefore being able to create new experiences, go to new places, do new things.  To me it means having more money than month and paying all my bills easily and consistenly.

Thriving to me means letting go of the negative self talk, the need to find comfort from food or other things.

It means being lost in the moment and seeing the beauty all around me like when the sun sets and sh*t I forgot my camera……again!!

It means watching my kids grow up and know they’re going to be ok as they’re pretty cool teenagers.

It means making great dishes and sitting around with great friends creating great memories.

I could go on……

Thriving is so much fun instead of surviving.

It’s being you and sometimes standing out from the rest of the crowd.

EFT is a great tool to help you move over, if that is what you want to do.  Of course interrupting patterns and creating new habits is a good thing too, ones that you love to do or empower you or leave you feeling……well like you’er thriving!!!

What are your thoughts on that??

Letting Go

 

 

Letting Go

Ahhhh summer is officially here…..finally!!!  How was your long weekend?? Ours was great.  I hope you really enjoyed yourself as that is what life is about each and every day.

How many of you went camping or to family gatherings, picnics, beaches, etc?  Usually on these long weekends, especially when the weather is nice and we can be outside we are eating things we don’t normally eat…..potato salad, macaroni salads, burgers, hot dogs, and so on…….I hope you did and I hope you enjoyed it.

Really I do!!!!

I also hope that you are not feeling guilty over what you ate, didn’t eat, drank or should have eaten.  Life is too short for that.  Don’t get me wrong, I always encourage to eat healthy, but here’s how I look at it, we are only here for a little while, we have to have some fun along the way too, if that means you’re at a family picnic or gathering as an example where you know the food won’t be the best, you have a couple of options……take something that is healthy and eat more of that, or relax and go with the flow for the time being.  Not saying you should do that every day or all the time, but once in awhile is more than ok.

Remember our thoughts are powerful.  If you are feeling guilty, or beating yourself up over what you did eat or what you should have eaten instead……you are doing more damage to yourself.  It’s over with, let it go.   Make better choices next time.  How can you do that? By loving yourself anyways, right here and now, making a better choice today, that with each today and tomorrow will only get better if that is what you focus on.  If you keep focusing on what you should have done, or feeling guilty or beating yourself up, you will probably always come up short handed.

Acknowledge the good things no matter how small they are in what you are doing and who you are.  They can only then get bigger and better.

Also, EFT is a great tool for letting go of those negative,unwanted emotions, which stem from our thoughts.  Whether that be with dealing with eating, ourselves, life or business.

Change a thought, change alot……….  love to hear your thoughts below……..make it  a great day!!!

EFT, FOOD & YOU

EFT, Food & You

We have come along way since the days of the Hunters / Gatherer’s way of eating.  Food is everywhere and part of everything today.  So much of what we really call food is not even close to what real food is, especially here in North America.  Food & emotional eating and addiction to food have become a way of life for many, and it’s usually not a healthy way.  Not only do I speak from experience, but look around us there is evidence everywhere, obesity, diabetes, heart disease and so on.  I won’t even get into the cost of food in this post!!!

When one has a struggle with food whether it be restriction, emotional eating, binge eating, over eating,  or even addiction to certain foods that one really wants to let go of, there are usually emotional reasons behind these ways of being.  I can only speak for myself, but when I was struggling to have a somewhat ‘normal’ relationship with food, I lacked self confidence, never felt good enough, was very self critical, couldn’t love myself, so how could I love anyone else?  Was always comparing myself to other women and of course would come up short, so what did I do often………..I turned to food for comfort, so I couldn’t feel the pain or acknowledge it, so I would stuff it down, which could keep me busy often for hours, so I also didn’t have to look at my life or participate in it………..

Many things changed over the years for me to have a better or normal (what is normal for me, and we all I believe have a somewhat different normal for ourselves) or healthy relationship with food.  Deciding I wanted to, deciding I wanted to live life and enjoy it, not have my head stuck in a fridge or toilet, wanting to enjoy and taste food, having kids and doing some inner work, finding peace within myself.  Learning to accept myself – warts and all, learning to let go of judgement, seeing the good in me and what I could do instead of what I couldn’t do, so I could see the good in others.  And finally, loving myself……plain and simple.  EFT / Tapping comes in very handy for all of those things, that is why I love this tool so much.

I tapped on  –  Never being good enough, feeling less than, not having confidence, not being good enough (yup sometimes a 1 word change can make a big difference or knock down the problem completely), using food for comfort, hating myself, hating my body, being short, having small breasts, short legs, scared of talking in public, putting myself out there, what will people think of me, to being strong enough, who was I to think I could……, eating too much, eating too little, having no control around food, wanting to eat more, having no self control, no will power, can’t stand up for myself and well I could go on……….but you probably get the idea.

When I was first introduced to EFT through a weekend workshop, I worked on not being good enough…….which is fairly general, but we got it down to a zero intensity and it started at a 10, which is the highest.  Well, with one word change to never being good enough, I was back at a 10………I couldn’t believe it, but we got that down to a zero, then got a little more focused, like where and when do I not or never feel good enough………so if anyone is using food a crutch or a comfort for not feeling some emotions, this really is one of the easiest and best tools to use.  Now, sometimes, you will need or benefit from using a therapist or someone who specializes using tools like this to really get down to the core issues and dissolving them faster.

Food is to nourish our bodies, but our minds and spirits too.  Food should be used to feed our bodies and be our medicine as often as possible.  It is more for enjoyment and entertainment these days, but also highly abused.  When we can let go of emotions that aren’t serving us not only can we start having a better relationship with food but ourselves as well.

When I first got into Raw Foods, again I got a little too narrow minded, hell I got a fair bit anal……..I now know and realize that most people won’t or can’t eat this way even 60% of the time, and I didn’t want to eat like this 90 or 100% of the time, even though I know the health benefits, I am not sure if one needs to be 100%, plus I didn’t want the pressure or it.  I like being balanced and having some flexibility, when I was too narrow minded about having to be raw, it took a toll on me and my relationship, and that is not healthy either.  Anyone who swings too far one way, I feel isn’t healthy either.  (so in case you are wondering why I changed the title of my blog, that is a big part of it).

You were born a beautiful spiritual being here to have a human experience, so I believe, and we should make it the best one and why not start today!!!

You can download a FREE copy of my EFT manual to learn how to do it, and the FREE  Tapping Summit starts today as well.

Make it Your BEST DAY EVER!!
