Sugar - You Are SO Busted!

How did our love affair with sugar get so out of hand? Besides the fact that it makes everything taste good, sugary foods are constantly in our face, and pretty much in EVERYTHING we eat. So how can we defend ourselves from this daily battle? Getting informed and paying more attention only accounts for half of the armor we need. The other half is getting “real” with ourselves and 1) acknowledging that we are addicted to sugar and 2) what’s causing this addiction.

I was at a Natural Living expo recently and a couple of the speakers addressed the sugar addiction from a different perspective. It was in relation to stress and how a lack of love is a contributing factor to sugar addiction. Stop and think about the last sugary food you ate or drank.

What was going on in your life at the time?

Were you feeling lonely?

Stressed?

Unsafe?

Abandoned?

Emotionally drained?


How did you feel after ingesting the sugar?

Comforted?

Relaxed?

Fulfilled in some way?

These post-sugar sensations are giving us a fake sense of reality. Like any other kind of addiction, the “fix” is temporary and whatever it is we’re trying to escape from is still there and WILL rear its head at a later time. Instinctively, we know this. So why don’t we look at what the real cause is and try to fix it? (Here come the excuses!) We don’t have time, or it’s someone else’s fault, or we don’t know where to start, and the big one, (drumroll please!) because we’re too scared to face the pain.

When you think about it, it makes total sense. Society today is slowly awakening to the fact that if we don’t deal with our pain, we’re really hurting ourselves. Think of the body having several layers of protection, which is the energy field. Pain starts to penetrate the outermost layer of our energy field and continues to burrow through each layer until it gets to the physical body. With each layer, your intuition is working diligently to get your attention and give you clues about this pain so you can work on releasing it and healing. The more you ignore your intuition, the more opportunity the pain has to burrow deeper into the next layer. Once it hits the physical body, your pain is now into full blown disease. There are no more layers to burrow into and your body is desperately screaming to get your attention.

Why do we do this to ourselves? The reality is, the pain we’re not dealing with is difficult to deal with because it requires work and the ability to really face the truth. There are lots of drugs, alcohol, or other self-medicating sources that will ease the physical pain and as long as that provides some relief, then the problem is “solved.” How sad is that? How do we fix this problem? The obvious solution is, “I’m going to recognize it sooner before it gets to the physical level.”

If you look at what’s going on in the world today, a lot of the chaos is really due to unacknowledged pain that’s spilling into every area of our daily life. Change is desperately needed and there are a lot of people who are stepping up and wanting to help and getting frustrated in the process. Why? Because you can’t want change for someone else more than they want it for themselves. Let me say that again and really allow it to sink in. You can’t want change for someone more than they want change for themselves. So what do you do? Start with changing yourself. Have you heard the quote by Mahatma Gandhi, “Be the change you want to see in the world”? You only have control over You. Positive change starts with YOU setting the example, by working on your own pain, then using that clearing experience to help nudge others onto their own clearing journey.

So next time you reach for something full of sugar, ask yourself, “What’s going on in my life that I’m trying to avoid dealing with?” and play detective. Start asking yourself questions about why you feel a certain way?, where do these emotions really come from? Whatever’s coming up is manifesting itself now because the time has come to deal with the pain. Love yourself enough to acknowledge it, work through it, release that old energy, grieve, have gratitude for what the experience taught you, and finally heal. You’ll feel so much better and your future self will thank you and love you more for doing the work that allowed joy to come in.

Much love,

Ann
