When it comes to healing our relationship with food, a meditation practice can serve us greatly. My first meditation experience was over 30 years ago and it opened my eyes to the power of our minds. The beauty of meditating is that there are so many ways to practice. You don't have to follow rules and you can come up with your own ways to harness your mind just by clearing it, concentrating on something, contemplating or following a guided script.
You collect the benefit from meditating even if you don't
think you're "doing it right."
I am a certified instructor of Metta, also known as Lovingkindness Meditation. It is said that Metta was taught by The Buddha as an antidote to fear. Much of the media in our society focuses on fear and chaos and the result is anxiety, stress,
judgment, anger, etc.
Metta is a way to rewire our brains to generate compassion and insight. The more we generate awareness of ourselves, the higher our emotional intelligence...and therefore the higher our Eating Intelligence TM.
When we continue to practice we become more and more connected within through creating space in between our thoughts and emotions and accessing the higher vibration emotions that are in all of us...just not always at the forefront
of our emotional bodies.
We realize that we are not our thoughts or emotions but the witness. From this place we learn to respond as opposed to react. We rewire our minds to concentrate better and become more present...both aspects will serve us in accessing more
of our intuitive wisdom.
Private sessions can be very beneficial for those that want the connection or guidance, and are frustrated with trying to meditate, and are overwhelmed
or feeling disconnected.
