Here, we can now discover a more holistic approach to this subject: Sometimes, eating is one way to repress different types of emotional pains. Some people eat, because they struggle with fears. Others eat, because they don't want to feel their loneliness. Eating more than what is healthy for the body then becomes a way of avoiding certain emotions. No matter if one is eating too much or not at all: please make sure you do get medical help as fast as possible.
We all know that the right mix of sugar and fats activates certain chemical reactions in the brain, and that temporarily has a short effect on how the person feels. But this is only for a half-hour. Then one would have to eat again the same unhealthy substances... but you don't want that.
It is, therefore, no surprise that diets don't show the results people are hoping for. As long as the original reasons for those eating habits are not solved, these old emotions are still there. They may be hidden and repressed, but they are still there.
Those emotions make the person feel uncomfortable over and over again; and then the person is eating again more. Often in situations where the person feels insecure anyway. Sometimes, people find new ways to temporarily distract themselves. You know this, a distraction never solves the problem. Sooner or later, these emotions come back to surface again - because they are asking for healing. And you can heal them. The Soul wants your healing, for long term too.
It helps you then if you can see this chance for healing yourself: take the time to consciously look at those emotions that come to surface. Even if in that moment it does not feel very comfortable: they do come to surface for healing, so that you can be free and feel more joy of life. If you face and release those emotions now, they will not come back again, and you can move towards your goal with great ease.
At this point, it makes not a big difference if a person is anorexic or overweight as a result of some eating disorders: the repressed emotions have to be healed first, if the person wants really heal on all levels. Afterwards, when the person is feeling better on the emotional level, to then maintain a healthy lifestyle will be a lot easier. With a little bit of help and determination, you can make these changes.
Same as many other physical symptoms are signaling this, an eating disorder is a sign that the heart needs help to heal. Old wounds and repressed emotions demand our time and attention. Really taking care of them is freeing the heart, healing yourself on all levels. It is the path to find real well being - both in short and long term. This is a conscious work you do that will remove the blockages, all that hindered you in the past to live the life you wish to create for yourself.
A diet plan alone will not make lasting stable long term changes. One needs to work on a holistic level, on all levels of the being first: the heart and the Soul need to be included in this whole transformation. There is a connection between emotional stability, emotional health and the body weight.
The person who is in the middle of these situations can feel overwhelmed by those old emotions. Please make sure you get all the medical support from your doctor and from certified therapists.
These steps of emotional healing help you to get a new perspective, and you'll soon find new inner strength, new self-esteem, and develop a positive self-image.
Still, we have to be aware that we alone are responsible for our body. And it all starts in the moment we make a choice to buy a certain type of food. Preparing healthy meals for yourself is also an act of self-respect and self-love. The more you develop inner peace, self-love and emotional stability, the more you'll be aware of the quality of the food that is good for your body. You'll see that you naturally change your eating habits along that way.
Your own Divine Self, your Soul, truly wants you to heal. Allow yourself to receive that help now.
And it really works by taking one step at a time. Be patient with yourself, let go and let your Divine Source lead you.
Due to my own experience, I say it this way: if you are not eating at all, or eating too much, you have to wake up and realize that you're about to seriously destroy your own health. Doctors can only help you as far as you are ready to accept their help. But it is your job alone to collaborate with them. You need to realize your own responsibility for your health here and now. Only if you make the clear choice to get healthy again, then doctors and therapists can help you. But you got to say YES to your own life first, and to accept the help that is being offered to you.
Divine Synchronicity always brings to you the help and the messages that are meant for your support. It is maybe no random you found this blog message. Your Divine Source has many ways to speak to You... It is not always easy to admit that we may need help, nor is it easy to accept help. But what if that help is what your Divine Self wants you to receive, so that you can heal and soon live a more beautiful life?
