Healing the Weight Loss Struggle of the Empath

Healing the Weight Loss Struggle of the Empath

Healing the Weight Loss Struggle of the Empath

I’ve written a lot about weight loss because it’s a very misunderstood area.  For some reason, many of us who are well versed in energy work, universal laws, law of attraction and such topics, don’t realise that the same laws apply to weight and body image issues – they do!

As I wrote in my Make Friends With Food article, everything we’ve learned in personal or spiritual development studies can equally be applied to weight and body image issues. We have a relationship with food, just as we have a relationship with everything and everyone else in our lives. If we create conflict and struggle in that relationship with our negative beliefs we simply create more resistance and more struggle.

I covered a lot of the reasons for stubborn weight issues in my article What Was Going On In Your Life The Last Time You Were at Your Ideal Weight? some of which apply to empaths too. But there are also a few different reasons an empath may struggle with weight issues.

In my free e-book, Healing the Heart of the Empath, I described how so many of us have spent our lives being told we are “too” something. “Too sensitive, too emotional, too serious, too passionate, too opinionated too ….Fill in the blank, it’s been endless.” Many of us also struggle to know where our energy and emotions end and other people’s begin and this can contribute to over-eating and failure to lose weight.

Free E-book – Healing The Heart of the Empath

As with everything our bodies do, there are deeper, eminently, sensible and logical reasons for it but until we understand those reasons, it can be hard to know where to turn when we keep failing to lose or maintain weight.

Firstly let’s look at being “too much” for people. I hope those of you who have read the e-book or used my Healing the Heart of the Empath meditation package are leaving that belief behind by now! But even when we have healed the emotional roots, our bodies take a bit of time to catch up. Your body may still be holding on to excess weight in an effort to slow your energy down and stop being “too much” for people. The comfort aspect of over-eating may feel good in the moment but after a few minutes you feel that heavy feeling which is a great way of slowing your energy down!

Look at where you still believe you are “too much” for others and see if your over-eating is related to that belief.

The second reason an empath may struggle with weight issues, is a lack of emotional grounding. If you are going into the emotional fray every day without consciously grounding yourself, your body may have decided it has to ground you!  If you are giving too much of yourself in a healing capacity, over-eating dulls your senses and your sensitivity giving you a much needed emotional break.  (Once again, I marvel at the wisdom of our bodies and how they really are always trying to do the very best they can to support us!)

Consciously and deliberately find another way to ground yourself and your body will move towards it’s natural balance again.

Using our free Heal Your Relationship with Food Affirmations will help you change your energy and beliefs and therefore your relationship with food. Read or tap along with them for a few days and you’ll feel the difference!

I just wasn’t hungry any longer. I had used your Food meditation the other night for the first time (I always feel guilty about food choices even if all I’ve had is a bagel lol and I find it difficult to know when I’m full, etc.) Well this morning I laid out my breakfast and was happily eating it and then with about 3/4 of it done, I suddenly decided I didn’t want anymore, I just wasn’t hungry any longer. This might seem very normal for most people but that doesn’t happen to me. lol So I was very surprised and pleased! lol

Just wanted you to know how effective your meditations are. And by the way, all previous attempts I’ve made at meditating (before purchasing your meditations) have been an abject failure for me, thus why I am really overjoyed to find something effective that makes me WANT to meditate! 😉 lol

Affirmations for emotionally healthy weight loss & body image.

(I offer these affirmations free for your personal use. Please do not steal them and publish them as your own.)

Affirmations Healthy Weight Loss

Our relationship with food is intimately connected with how emotionally safe, loved and nourished we feel. An increase in appetite may result from emotional pain, the need to fill that painful, empty place with something. The something you are really looking for is love but in a perceived absence of love you make do with food. A lack of appetite can indicate  a desire to retreat from life, nurturing the hurt inside us again indicating a need for love. Not feeling safe can lead you to put on weight and keep it on!

Our relationship with food can be complex. Powerful emotions of enjoyment and guilt get in to the mix. “Expert” advice about what is and is not healthy seems to change daily resulting in confusion and mixed emotions.

Change your thinking and the way you feel about food. Bring peace into the relationship you have with food. Not only will you feel better but your body will respond.

Affirmations to Heal Your Relationship with Food & Your Body

With every breath I take, I am sending, love and gratitude to every single cell in my body. Yes, yes, yes, yes.

The True Key To Emotionally Healthy, Permanent Weight Loss

The True Key To Emotionally Healthy, Permanent Weight Loss

The True Key To Emotionally Healthy, Permanent Weight Loss

The true key to permanent, emotionally healthy weight loss is almost universally overlooked. But when you realise it, it is incredibly simple, straightforward and logical.

What the true key is NOT:-

  • Counting Calories
  • Strict Diets
  • Exercise Regimes
  • Meal Replacements
  • Miracle Pills
  • Scales
  • Measuring Tapes

The true key is much deeper, simpler and more powerful than any of these. The final piece of the puzzle you’ve been waiting for lies in your underlying beliefs and emotions.

What you are attached to or believe to be true in your subconscious mind is vastly more powerful than anything you try to do using the will-power or intellect of your conscious mind.

The subconscious is where the root causes and the answers to all weight and body image lie.

In many cases there is an underlying pain or fear, grief, danger, trauma or loss which your body is trying to protect you from by laying down and holding on to fat.

In a surprising number of cases, a happy memory can cause emotional eating. Somewhere deep inside part of you equates food with love and safety. Perhaps you had a happy birthday party and a lovely birthday cake, or your father took you to the beach and bought you ice cream. Perhaps soon after, your father left you. Now you think you crave ice cream after emotional loss, but it’s actually love, warmth and safety you crave.

When you begin to see either of these patterns for what they truly are, you realise how well your body is trying to look after you. This realisation is your first step to self-empowerment and permanent, healthy weight loss! Learn more in our How Trauma, Loss AND Love Affect Your Weight And What You Can Do About it! pdf.

It has never been about food, it has always, always been about healing painful emotions.

How Trauma, Loss AND Love Affect Your Weight And What You Can Do About it!

What Kind of Emotional Eater Are You?

What Kind of Emotional Eater Are You?

What Kind of Emotional Eater Are You?

My work as an Emotional Freedom Technique Practitioner, taught me there are many different reasons people reach for the comfort of food. There are as many reasons as there are emotional eaters! Once you identify and clear the underlying emotional roots the urge to over-eat diminishes or even vanishes.

Here are some questions to help you identify which emotions are triggering your emotional eating.

Are you most likely to emotionally eat when:

You are lonely

You are stressed

You are angry

When you are doubting yourself

When you are reminded of painful past experiences

If you could change one thing about your emotions what would it be?

I’d stop letting loneliness overwhelm me

I’d stop feeling so stressed

I’d stop allowing others to trigger my anger

I’d believe in myself more

I’d heal my emotional pain once & for all

 

 

The subconscious is where the root causes (and therefore the answers) to all weight and body image issues lie.

In many cases there is an underlying pain of fear, grief, danger, trauma or loss which your body is trying to protect you from by laying down and holding on to fat.

In a surprising number of cases, a happy memory can cause emotional eating. Somewhere deep inside part of you equates food with love and safety. Perhaps you had a happy birthday party and a lovely birthday cake, or your father took you to the beach and bought you ice cream. Perhaps soon after, your father left you. Now you think you crave ice cream after emotional loss, but it’s actually love, warmth and safety you crave.

When you begin to see these patterns for what they truly are, you realise how well your body is trying to look after you. This realisation is your first step to self-empowerment and permanent, healthy weight loss!

It has never been about food. It has always, always, been about healing emotions.

 

Try our unique healing affirmations. Read or use EFT tapping as you take yourself through our Affirmations for emotionally healthy weight loss & body image then test how you feel about eating. You can really put it to the test by smelling or tasting your favourite food and marking your craving or desire to eat it on a ten point scale (10 being desperate to eat it, zero being you just don’t fancy it or even you don’t think you like it anymore!)

Do You Remember The Last Time You Were At Your Ideal Weight?

Do You Remember The Last Time You Were At Your Ideal Weight?

What Was Going On The Last Time You Were At Your Ideal Weight?

Your Body Might Still Be Trying To Protect You From It!

A few years ago in my Emotional Freedom Technique Practice, I specialised in helping people with weight issues. I was fascinated by the various, sometimes complex, reasons we hold on to excess weight.

It’s now widely known that putting on and carrying excess weight can be a protective reaction to trauma regardless of what weight you were when the trauma happened. Using E.F.T. it is a fairly simple matter to clear the feelings and emotions around the trauma and allow the body to come back into balance.

Holding on to excess weight can be a reaction to a happy memory.

What is less well- known is that holding on to excess weight can also be a reaction to a happy memory. A skilled E.F.T. practitioner should be able to help you untangle and heal those feelings and emotions too.

Your body is trying to protect you.

Another, less well-known, aspect of why we hold on to excess weight is that something traumatic happened when you were last at your ideal weight and your body is trying to protect you from it happening again. This can be quite complex to unravel, especially if the trauma is deeply hidden.

One lady I worked with, we’ll call her Sally, used a well-known national weight loss plan and had great success up to a point. That point was 11st 11 lbs and she simply could not get past it! It was like a brick wall that she just could not get over.

Despite following the weight loss plan to the letter, she could never get beyond 11st 11lbs! That was when she turned to me for help.

After a bit of exploratory work and a lot of tapping, I asked what had been going on in her life when she was last at her ideal weight. She told me she was at college, she loved her course, had a great social life and a loving relationship. Everything had been wonderful. It seemed we’d hit another dead end.

The ‘perfect’ boyfriend had been unfaithful!

We kept tapping, but nothing I tried resonated with her. All of a sudden she exclaimed, “Oh My God! Now I remember”. A deeply hidden memory suddenly surfaced. She remembered discovering the ‘perfect’ boyfriend had been unfaithful and she, in a fit of misery, had taken a bottle of whisky and walked into the sea one night. Nothing traumatic there then???

healing emotional eating affirmations

Once we had discovered this memory, it was fairly straight forward to clear the emotions and trauma from it with E.F.T.

She reached her ideal weight.

After clearing the emotions around that memory and maintaining the same weight loss regime, she flew easily beyond the dreaded 11st 11lbs and reached her ideal weight.

Another lady I worked with had a similar experience. The last time she’d been at her ideal weight, she’d become pregnant and as a single mother struggled to survive financially. There was no way she wanted to go back to that! Again, clearing the emotional traumas surrounding that experience, cleared the way for her to go on to achieve her ideal weight.

Will power, exercise and strict diets are just not going to cut it.

In cases like these, will power, exercise and strict diets are just not going to cut it because your body, in its wisdom, is trying to protect you. Which brings me back to my favourite saying, “Your body is not your enemy, it is always, always doing the very best it can to protect you”.

Love to all those wise and wonderful bodies,
