“We teach what we most need to learn” – Richard Bach
As I prepare for my Conscious Weight Loss workshop this month I find myself struggling with what to eat and what not to eat. When ever I am about to teach a specialized workshop all my issues around that topic come to the surface to heal. I have had an on again off again love affair with food for the past several years. Through the years I have taken sugar, soy, gluten, meat, and dairy out of my diet. These foods cause pain and inflammation in my body. I have included back into my diet meat when my body requires it though
It has come to the point where every bite of food includes a question mark at the end of it. Will this cause my body pain? As I was practicing my bound lotus meditation this morning I asked myself if there was anything I needed to know about improving my diet? Just as I was unwrapping myself from the posture this message came through.
“Food is not the enemy” – Della’s Wise Self
My guidance was telling me that my thoughts about what I’m eating is causing me the struggle I am in. I know that sugar, wheat and dairy are not my friends. I have no intention in indulging in these except on rare occasions. The point is that when I decide to eat something to have joy in the experience. Love every bite. If my body doesn’t like what I have eaten then I know not to make that particular food choice again.
So, there you have it. Love. Every. Bite!!!
