DETOXING: INTUITION OR ADDICTION?

Leave a comment

DISCERNING OUR TRUTH FROM OUR ADDICTION

No matter who is advising me I always want to keep my intuition in check about what I am doing. Honing my intuition is something I value. If a person is not in good health their intuition can be greatly hindered, or blinded by addiction. In brief, feeling like eating something that is not helpful to my condition is definitely coming from a place of addiction. The organisms / toxins are making the decision and not the person whose primary interest is healing. If I am honest with myself I know the difference.

In the moment it can be easy to justify what we want to eat, or do.Taking the time to ask myself what part of me is making this decision is of primary importance.  Having the presence of mind to do this takes some discipline. A craving for something hot and spicy as a dominant taste in a meal, for me at this time, would not be a good choice.

STOP THE GURU DEPENDENCY. TO HEAL IT  NEEDS TO BE A PARTNERSHIP

I respect the opinions of the people who advise me, but it is important not to be totally reliant on them. Getting healthier makes that possible, but that takes time. Keep asking the questions that are uncomfortable. It takes trial and error, but a stronger character is built from becoming our own guru. My experience. Maybe yours, too?

People often start chipping away at the person who is advising them when their sickness wants to prevail. Finding fault with the person or team that is advising us is a trap that is easy to fall into. No one is perfect, but sometimes those advising us need to be challenged. Sometimes the fear its that we need the  person advising us more than they need us. I have felt this way and it is not an empowering feeling. In the depths of my soul I know that over thinking, analyzing, and ruminating is part of not being in good health.

At the age of ten I distinctly remember questioning the premise that illness just happens to us. The idea that every action has a reaction became a clear reason to doubt that I could not personally impact my own health. In my very early twenties I was introduced to the Macrobiotic Philosophy of Life and assisted a Macrobiotic Counselor in NYC over a period of ten years or more. My life took many twists and turns and I evolved from a trained dancer and performer to a Shiatsu Therapist, Yoga Teacher, Colon Therapist and student of different Spiritually oriented Mind Body Therapies at the Esalen Institute and other healing centers. My associations are as follows: Member of the AOBTA for over 20 Years Member of the NCCAOM for approximately 12 years Member of the Yoga Teachers Alliance 500 hours for approximately 12 years Colon Therapist [ Wood's Institute ] Since 1998 Along with studying REIKI [ 2nd degree ] I was part of a School based on the work of Railey Macey, Dr. Robert Jaffe and Hands of Light. Railey Macey was my teacher. Thank you for your interest in my blog. notyourrawmoma "Wherever you are be the soul of that place". Rumi
