Are you terrorizing yourself with your thoughts about food?
“We are all love just looking for a place to happen.”—Esther Hicks
I leave for Switzerland in about two hours. I’m giving a workshop in Bern and then I’m off to Norway for a travel assignment. Among other things, I’ll be sleeping in a snow hotel (just one night), enjoying a Viking dinner and viewing (knock on wood) the Northern Lights.
But I simply have to share this amazing blog post I got from a friend yesterday. Do yourself a favor and read it yourself (it can be accessed here), but to summarize, my friend Linda, like most of us, had picked up a lot of “rules” about how and what to eat. You know the feeling. Guilt if you eat too much sugar. Confusion over whether you’re getting the right amount of carbs. Shame if you went off the damned diet you vowed to begin January (or February or March) 1.
Starting Christmas, Linda was having trouble with her eyes. She tried everything and finally decided to surrender and ask the bigger thing for help. Almost immediately, a voice, very clearly, said the following: “You have terrorized yourself with your thoughts about your body and food, declaring that food is MORE powerful than your thoughts. It is exactly the opposite… but as with all things, your thoughts have “made it so.” Your body obediently overreacts to many foods now. And you hold the fear of that all the time. Are you ready for an undoing?”
Being no dummy, she said, “YES! Please undo this for me.” She gave the fear to God, the F.P., the Divine Buzz, the thing that has so many synonyms, none of which begin to do it justice.
I’m sure you can guess what happened. But again, go here and read her story.
The other thing I want to share is that the word “desire” comes from a French word that means “of the Father.” So if you, like most of us in Worldview 1.0, feel at all guilty for wanting stuff, it’s time to let that go. It’s time to feel innocent about your desires and to know that your intentions and dreams are actually God’s way of expanding itself. Yep, your desires are holy.
With that being said, I want to extend the deadline for the E-Cubed Selfie Challenge. I know I said it was yesterday, but because I’m about to fly across the ocean, I won’t be passing out prizes until I return. So post those selfies (a picture of you with your HIGHEST desire) to my Facebook page and get entered to win tickets to all four of this year’s North American “I Can Do it” conferences.
They’re going to be life-changing. And as I’ve said, every single person wins because once you make a new vision for yourself, the universe begins to conspire to bring it to fruition.
I’ll probably check in with ya’ll when I’m in Europe, but, either way, have a stupendous couple of weeks.
