Limiting belief

Wednesday, March 26, 2014

Hello SparkFriends!

Here's the latest limiting belief I'm struggling with: I deeply believe I HAVE TO exterminate any piece of chocolate that comes into my house. I can't share it with anybody else because I deeply feel it's MY job to wipe it out from my place. What's wrong with me??? It's as if I were a knight in armour protecting my family from the big bad wolf.

I'm trying to find an empowering belief to replace it but I can't seem to come up with productive ideas... Any thoughts on that?

Anyway, I feel relieved knowing the last chocolate crumb is about to perish and I can come back to my normal way of eating... and behaving around usual food. Phew! emoticon

Thanks for reading and I'm looking forward to reading your input!

    Also, listened to IOWL episodes 90 & 91 again today. They are super for a reminder about intent and its importance whenever you eat. Whenever & whatever you eat set your intent for it to benefit your body as much as possible!

    by exterminating it, you mean eating it, right?

If so then have done some of this - but not even with the excuse of protecting my family. I eat 'bad' stuff so that like you said, 'I can come back to my normal way of eating' I want to get the temptation/bad eating over with so I don't have to think about it any more.

I think for me it got easier when I decided to be less strict about WHAT I eat. I figured that eliminating all toxins etc from my diet was too much for me to take on while I was still prone to compulsive eating. Instead I have been just focusing on trying to get hungry and enjoy other renewal practices. This has certainly helped with the compulsive eating, and I feel more 'neutral' towards bad food, meaning I'm less bothered about eating it. I would like to progress towards a cleaner diet, and I am sure it will happen, but for me I wanted to get the hunger/regular meals habits cemented first.

Not sure this will be relevant to you, as it sound like you are further down the raw vegan food path than me.
