We live in a fast-paced world of technology and we are inundated with information. We read something on the internet and might assume, that its true. I have listened to the so-called experts for decades, especially regarding health and nutrition. When ever I went against my gut feelings, I felt a loss of my personal power because I believed them instead of myself.
Question: What do Louise Hay, Anthony Robbins, Andrew Weil, Deepak Chopra and
Doreen Virtue have in common?
Answer: These people are leaders in the field of personal development.
They all eat different diets and it works for them.
We are evolving beings and our requirements for nourishment changes. In the last few years I decided to start eating intuitively because what ever I was doing before was not working for me. Sure, knowledge and information is a good thing but we still get to choose. Let’s face it not even the experts can agree on what constitutes good nutrition.
At times, I still find it challenging to decide what to eat but I know that I am getting better at it because I keep asking myself what will work for me now. I don’t judge myself when I choose something that didn’t feel good after I ate it because I know I did my best. This article isn’t about food but about learning to listen and trust yourself by paying attention to your intuition.
I want to enjoy my food and I don’t want to worry about the food police. As we approach the holiday season there might be a temptation to be a glutton and stuff yourself silly but why? I know that I too must remind myself of the most important of vitamins.
Vitamin G – eat with gratitude
Vitamin L – eat with love
Vitamin P – eat with pleasure
Vitamin R – eat in a relaxed state of being
Vitamin S – eat and drink slowly and savour
“Treat yourself as if you already are enough. Walk as if you are enough. Eat as if you are enough. See, look, listen as if you are enough. Because it’s true.”
