My relationship with food has been a lifetime of complication, confusion, and a wobbly balancing act between pain and pleasure, starvation and deserving.
The way my body and spiritual guidance has shown me is through the access door of anatomy.
In other words, because my heart was under lock and key, my consciousness had to enter through my logical mind before I was able to unlock the barbed wire fence keeping me from my just desserts of love and well-deserved emotional pleasure.
The Emotional Body (of the Governing Elemental Body), manifests as water. I understand this to be that the water element embodies & delivers the frequency of Love. How did I come to this conclusion? Because the ultimate, greatest & purest emotion is LOVE.
While we can pollute our water and our emotions, at the core of either of those, is the pure unwavering vibration of love. If you were to go into a deep dive on the study of water, you would find that it is impossible to actually pollute water itself, but the pollution is the stuff that hangs around the elements of water. At the core, water vibrates at the frequency of love. Its how water can be purified back to its original state, because it does not become its pollutants. Just like LOVE does not become anything less than itself; even though some questionable characters may make all attempts to change it, obliterate it, abscond with it, hang onto it, or attempt all sorts of ridiculous unachievable feats. Love is unending and unchangeable at its core.
But what does this have to do with hunger you ask?
First Phase of Logic
Though the reliability of general ‘studies’ is in great question, we can at least use them as a jumping off point when using discernment. This study concluded that 37% people studied confused thirst for hunger. This may or may not come as a surprise to you. The best test lab is your own body. And what better time and place to do that, than toward the end of Week 1 of SUPERBLOOM, as you prepare for the coming weeks of the course.
What is hunger? I wanted to know. And what I have for uncovered for myself is that it is less about my relationship with food, than it is my relationship with hunger.
We all know what thirst feels like, right? To thirst for some crystal clear pure water on a hot summer day, or even after a strenuous trek through the snow. The pleasure it elicits just thinking about it makes me want to go get a big glass of water. (I did.)
First Phase of Emotional Untangling
I began tracing back through my history and relationship with hunger. As a blossoming teenage girl, I chose to deprive myself of feeding the hunger that I felt. I began to tell myself that this feeling of hunger was a great sign that I would have the perfect body. And once I had that, I’d have everything I needed. I began to feel a sense of high when I would deprive my body of what it was asking for. The other avenues I went down to fill that void is another story. So too are the precipitating events leading to the creation of this mental construct.
Also nestled in that mental construct was the idea that water weighed too much. I didn’t want the scale to be reading the weight of water over my ‘actual’ gravitational load. It was almost like I could become weightless if I tried hard enough. Then everything would be perfect.
Second Phase of Logic
Anatomically speaking, the Heart sits on top of the abdominal organs, but mainly it is resting right on top of the stomach. Separated of course, by the diaphragm, the main instigator for the vacuum for the breath of life.
The Wisdom of The Ages
Fast forward through a tumultuous young adulthood, ushering in a ridiculously dis-harmonic adult experience, followed up by Now… A life infused with the wisdom of the past, the knowledge of anatomy, forgiveness, and the Love of God.
Wisdom & Logic
So as you move through the next couple weeks with your activity of Self Observation, I invite you to ask what it is you may be feeling if you are experiencing hunger. Is it really the food you are hungry for, or is there something deeper, an unmet need that has been masked by 3-square meals a day (or something else).
Fruit & veggies hold a lot of water by weight. Fruit & veggies also hold a much higher vibrational frequency— which of course you will not be surprised for me say that love is one of the highest frequencies! So fruit & veggies, straight off the vine, the branch, or out of the ground hold a high vibration of love! A gift from Gaia!
In the coming week (2), we will be drinking only liquids…mainly juicing. You will be nourishing your body with liquid love. I invite you to accept that. To allow yourself to receive liquid love.
If you experience any hunger pangs, first ask yourself what it IS you may be hungry FOR.
Is it food?
Or is it water, are you thirsty?
Or are you hungry for Love?
How else can you quench any thirst for love in your life?
