Are You A Calorie Phobe?

Are You A Calorie Phobe?

I used to be a calorie phobe and so I know what it’s like to feel impotent and a slave to these units of energy. I really believed that by counting calories and eating carefully measured amounts of food, I would finally have control over my body and be happy.

Well that didn’t happen, even when I could proudly claim that I was sticking to my calorie count with unquestionable loyalty. Except, despite wearing smaller clothes and getting a few more admirative glances from people I didn’t even know, I felt stressed and frustrated and bored. This counting of calories was boring and a drag. And it was weighing me down and eating had become a chore, rather than a time to fuel my body and have fun! I realized that I was a calorie phobe!

So I sat down and made a list of positive and negatives. And the negatives far outweighed the positive which was ‘everyone else thinks I look better’. Where the hell was I in my life?

Following on from that, I’ve put together a little quiz, based on my own experience and working with clients and without offering any medical advice. Give it a go and see how many you can apply to yourself.

Calorie Phobe Quiz*

1. You are always counting calories of the food you eat
2. You check the nutritional labels on food packages
3. You are desperate to lose or gain weight
4. You are convinced that your weight issues are linked to the food you eat
5. You feel that calories have more power of your life than you do
6. You know that a calorie is a unit of energy and yet you feel it has more impact than your own personal power
7. You are afraid to eat the foods you enjoy because you believe they will make you fat
8. You watch what you eat and drink like a hawk and it helps you feel like you are in control of your life
9. Every time you do give in to your cravings, you feel terrible afterwards and judge yourself
10. You feel life is unfair because it gave you the body you have and you can’t eat what you want

Did any of these sound like you? How many could you relate to?

In my opinion if you can relate with any of these, then you are limiting your true potential and living in a place of lack. How’s that working for you?

If so, would you like to change that? Then read on!

Alright! Then I would like to invite you to join me from 1st to 28th March 2017 for the 28 Days F.A.T Diet Programme. I run this programme 3 times a year because I too used to believe that a calorie had more power over my life than I did. And believe me, I tried almost every programme and technique there was to try to get control over these calories that were in charge of my life. Or so it seemed. Because that is what I believed!

One day, I woke up and realized that I was miserable. I was miserable because like I felt like I was a prisoner to calories. Can you relate?

And so I gave up my phobia around calories because I realized that energy was there to serve me. And I – yes ME – was responsible for how it served me.

So if you are over being a calorie phobe and letting this fear ruin your life and ultimately your health anyway, come and join my 28 Days F.A.T. Programme so that you can learn:

1. How to take back your own power over your emotions and body
2. Nourish yourself in a way that makes you healthy and happy, not miserable and afraid
3. Release the energy patterns that have kept you repeating the same old same over and over again
4. That your physical (your body) is closely linked to your emotional/mental (your mind) states and that these impact on your state of being (your soul)
5. Be happy with who you are, regardless of what you eat or your looks

Instead of spending your money on the next diet or calorie counter scheme, invest in yourself. The tools and confidence you will walk away with are well worth it. More details here

Body Talk

So, what’s your body talk? How does your body talk to you? Are you aware that your body can talk, not only to you but with other bodies? No, I am not talking about body language or even non-verbal communication, in the context of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP).  I am talking about the language that our bodies use to communicate with us and other bodies and energies. For many, often their first conscious awareness of their body will be through the sensation of pain. Yes, for some strange reason this is usually when people actually become aware of their physical bodies, other than the thing they have to feed and perhaps wash daily.  Until this time, many people remain totally disassociated with the one thing that is literally under their nose and closest too them. Not only is it ignored, but it is the receiver of much physical, emotional and mental abuse – usually self-inflicted, making it therefore more permissible.

I am very lucky to have always had an amazing, if until recently unidentifiable-as-that, connection with my body. I am not referring to physical appearance here, but rather to my body’s ability to perceive and receive information about situations, way and above that of the recognised biological five senses, although these are how ultimately information is filtered through.  I grew up believing I was over sensitive and that this was a “bad” thing.  Today, my work as an Energy Bodyworker has brought me full circle and to a deeper understanding and knowing of just how aware and conscious my body is. There is no doubt in my mind that my body has a consciousness of its own, separate from me. Just as you are separate and autonomous when out of your car, your car “belongs” to you and goes where you steer it, when you are driving, so our body is a vehicle for our Essence.

My personal breakthough in being conscious of my body as a separate life form, started way back with massage and reiki, however it was a body modality from Access Consciousness, called the BARS, that finally allowed me to fully embrace this concept and knowing.  Applying this process has liberated my body and me from many limiting patterns, both good and not so good. Today, I know that my body has a consciousness of its own and that it is constantly sharing this information with me. It has been me that so often refused to receive it. Unconditionally in service to me, my body created symptoms in its attempt to share vital information with me. For example, experiencing indigestion after eating food that my body did not want or need, pain to indicate where I was cutting myself off from source energy or information, dis-ease to lovingly attempt to get through to me that something I was doing was not in my greater interest.

Today I constantly ask my body what it wants to do, eat, look like and I tell it as often as I can and remember too, how grateful I am for it. My body is an amazing receptor, a great satellite that is picking up information beyond the limitations of my mind and feeding it back to me. I learn a little more each day to be in awareness of this vast sensory information coming to me. I still experience intense energy (otherwise and usually misidentified as “pain”) that is sometime uncomfortable, as my physical body too has to adjust and expand and evolve.  Remember that as my vehicle, my body has its own agenda and requires regular fuel and check-ups. Yes, I am a Spiritual Being having a physical experience, just as may body is a form of consciousness having its own experience, as we dance together.

The basic premise in NLP is that to understand your speaker, you need to understand the language he is using. The same applies to your body. So everywhere where you have misidentified and misapplied physical sensation as good or bad, rather than simply your body talk, would you be willing to destroy and uncreate that now please? What will it take for you to hear and understand you body talk?

Here is an except from Eckhart Tolle’s “The Power of Now”, about transformation through the body.
“The fact is that no one has ever become enlightened through denying or fighting the body or through an out-of-body experience. Although such an experience can be fascinating and can give you a glimpse of the state of liberation from the material form, in the end you will always have to return to the body, where the essential work of transformation takes place. Transformation is through the body, not away from it. This is why no true master has ever advocated fighting or leaving the body, although their mind-based followers often have.”

Have fun and en-joy-ment learning to understand and listen to your body talk!
