Making our feelings more positive
How positive are your feelings? You may be smiling on the outside, but deep down hurts, resentments, fears and feelings of not being enough may be hiding. When we don’t acknowledge them and use tools to make them more positive, they express themselves as physical illness in the body.
These days, we are so addicted to computers and cell phones and television that we don’t have the space to truly get in touch with our innermost thoughts and feelings. Online, we share with friends and family what we are doing, where we have been, how our job is going. That is in cyberspace. But what about our inner space?
When we are not mindful or fully aware of our feelings, we override them by going through the motions of every day life.
Often we swallow our feelings with generous helpings of food. We eat comfort foods to suppress feelings of sadness or insecurity. Or eat mindlessly when we feel stuck in life or feel very small.
In our book, The Secret Powers Of Colorful Foods, Charlotte Lyons and I share a food color matching technique to assist balancing emotions, feelings and attitudes that need a boost
Here’s how it works
Based on ancient Hindu belief, the human body has chakras or energy currents running along the spine whose circular spinning frequencies emit a different color for each of our emotions. Colors of emotions react positively to similar colors of food. And food colors can boost emotional energy.
Let’s say your feelings of confidence are low. Yellow is the color of the food to eat to raise the energetic frequency of personal power. Or, maybe you are in a creative slump. You might like to eat some orange yams or orange foods that correspond to creativity and going with the flow in life.
Yesterday, a reader shared that she had cravings for broccoli and spinach. Of course, on a physical level, she may have a deficiency in vitamin C or potassium that the body needs. But metaphysically and emotionally, the color green relates to nurturing, kindness, forgiveness and opening up the heart to giving and receiving love. I asked her to write down her feelings as she ate the green foods. What comes up emotionally? Could it be an ancient hurt like abandonment that she can’t forgive? That’s just one example. Or maybe she has cut off the ability to love. What feelings does she have about that. It will be interesting to see what she comes up with.
