Getting rid of more than just pounds...but also past issues

Sunday, May 09, 2010

I do not know if this has happened to anyone else, but I noticed that as I am melting the pounds, memories stored in them are surfacing to my conscious. The last time I had this weight I was experiencing a dramatic time of my life and I had a very intense dream about that issue. I was faced again, even though much less dramatic, with the problems of those days. I got the thought that it seemed as if the memories trapped in those fat cells are also being released. For some this may sound like science fiction and something to laugh at, but for others, maybe they too have experienced the need to let of past issues. I was reading about someone who was depressed once they had reached their goal. I was wondering how much of the depression could have been unfinished business....
I have read of organ transplants changing small preferences in food in the new host, or changing personality traits. There is a theory that organs have memories, and this would support my belief that while letting go of those pounds, we are also letting go of past issues. If you have not worked these out then now will be the time. We have become stronger so we can do this too, and will be much healthier, both physical and emotional.
