When I eat my emotions.
Our behavior towards food speaks of our relationship with ourselves and in particular, about our way of living in harmony with our emotions. Listening to our body, living in it to the fullest, responding to our needs. Our culture, having roots in the Judeo-Christian soil, has developed prejudices towards the body, even a certain contempt for it, by which it isn’t placed at the center of attention. Emotions are considered a burden. Education is responsible for having cut generations of men and women off from their own humanity. By putting a coffin lid on feelings, our patriarchal system has always valued intellect the most. School is the best example of this. The evaluation of skills and putting us in competition with each other from a very young age. No room for feeling and difference.
What if we listened to our bodies?
What if we recreated the Body-Spirit link?
Welcoming one’s feelings, one’s emotions, changes the game. The support I offer in managing eating behavior is based on the management of emotions through a technique developed during my years of practice and my own personal development. I first tested this practice on myself to then observe its effects on the first people who took benefit from it. Very quickly compulsive eating decreased and stopped in 8 cases out of 10.
Welcoming an emotion requires being fully aware of what is happening. Identifying the sensation, the situation and to fully accept embracing the sensation. Let the wave of anger, the wave of fear, the wave of sadness pass through yourself… In this chosen freedom, uncomfortable feelings disappear and give way to a space of quiescence. It seems easy and it needs little practice, but at first the mind resists, doesn’t want to take this path. As time passes, it will put itself at your service to welcome a lasting balance.
We always start from a concrete situation to explore unconscious sources and dislodge some memories that have crystallized: I call those emotional cysts. These sessions perform a real cleansing. It can be interesting at some point in the course of the support process to consult an energetic therapist, either acupuncturist or a Shiatsu practitioner.
