NOT about emotional eating. Depending on the themes in our self-talk, we’ll be driven by certain food cravings. Using the chakra system as the translator between the mind, spirit & body, we can see how entrenched points of view & beliefs, or enduring moods, are themes that correspond to specific chakras. Each chakra corresponds to universal themes in life, i.e. self-confidence w/in society, connection to our higher Self, having one’s basic needs met. If there is destructive self-talk within a theme of a certain chakra, we’ll then crave certain foods. Carbohydrates eaten in excess corresponds to the 3rd chakra. By examining each chakra’s universal themes and then your own self talk & food cravings, you can better see what your lower self is afraid of or needing and address that actual need, rather than go to food to feed this perceived lack. You’ll be empowering yourself to move beyond the perceived fear, using your food cravings as information instead that you then use to thrive!
