"We achieve inner health only through forgiveness, the forgiveness not only of others, but also of ourselves." -Joshua Loth Liebman
Have you ever downed an entire package of chips, crackers, or cookies? Ate pizza or cake until you felt sick? Drank more coffee or wine than your body wanted?
Do you remember how you were feeling at the time?
I ask because sometimes we overeat to help distract us from emotional pain. Think about it—have you noticed that sometimes when you overeat you’re not hungry at all? What you are is lonely. Or angry. Or sad. Or resentful. Or frustrated. Or something else.
So what hurt are YOU holding on to?
Tap Into the Power of Forgiveness
So personally, forgiveness is something I used to struggle with and I never really understood why I was at a stand still in my life. This area of my life was specifically pertaining to forgiving myself and my father. However, I didn't know that until I started researching and taking courses on soul ties with The One University. I always swept my feelings about this under the rug because I felt that I was too strong of a woman to show emotions on this level. We all know that as a woman we're supposed to be strong in all areas of our life. (Well that's what society tells us anyway) Now if you know a little about soul ties you know that it doesn't specifically have to be between a woman and man's intimate relationship, but it can be between family members as well as friends. If you don't know what a soul tie is according to Mr. Del, "a soul tie is basically an emotionally attachment that plagues your soul due to the negative impact it has on your life." To learn more on soul ties Mr. Del is a great person to learn from. Click here to check him out.
When you think about it..........
Wouldn’t it be more effective to address your uncomfortable feelings? The best, most thorough, most divinely perfect way to do that is forgiveness.
Forgiving is not easy, even for the most enlightened among us. If you’ve been allowing your present health to be controlled by past hurts, I urge you to commit to forgiving. From previous experience these steps can help. They have help me as well as as some friends of mine. Take a look:
1.Talk to sympathetic friends and family about your desire to forgive. Chatting with others is tremendously comforting. (this doesn't mean you have to tell everyone about your business.)
2.Write a letter to the person you’d like to forgive. You can decide whether or not you send it. (One thing I do during New Year's Eve is writing down things I desire, praying over them, and throwing them away. When we throw it away we initially give up to God. Your letter can be somewhat done in the same manner.)
3.See the situation from the other person’s perspective—your own perspective may change.
4.Don’t forget to forgive yourself. Sometimes we can be harshest with ourselves.(Yes this can definitely be a challenge)
5.Understand that you are responsible for your own attitude. Don’t let holding a grudge keep you from feeling free, open, and powerful in your own life.
Forgive and watch how much easier your relationship with eating becomes.
