I'm a spiritual medium. But people don't just talk to me because I can communicate with angels. They come to me to help them get to the root of physical issues that they just can't kick—usually because they're emotionally and spiritually based. Things like weight gain, cravings, fatigue, and even disease can be affected by your spiritual well-being or lack thereof.
Before I lose you, I’m not trying to approach these issues as if I were a typical psychic. I won’t tell you your food allergy is a result of an unresolved past life or a twisted chakra. Instead, I am going to focus on how your cravings or food issues may be attempts to heal wounds from the past.
As much as we’d like to think our sugar addiction is purely physical, and sheer force of will can cure it, that is not usually the case. Cravings are almost always an attempt to resolve an internal imbalance. I know that sounds heavy, but let’s break it down. The subconscious mind accounts for an estimated 95 percent of our thoughts, beliefs, and emotions. That means that only about 5 percent of the day we are consciously directing our lives. Five percent! That’s why it’s so hard to put down that damn cookie.
Until about age 7, most all of our major subconscious processes are static. It is also during this time that we learn what it takes to be loved and safe in the world. For example, if a parent had a temper, we may have learned how to hide in order to stay safe. With that subconscious belief, the natural inclination will be to shut down or hide in some way. And what better way to shove our emotions into a tiny, tiny hole than by numbing our nervous systems with food?
We can see now how these maladaptive coping mechanisms come into play with food.
Food only becomes an issue when we use it to feed a lack within our emotional selves.
