Pretend it’s just you and me, sitting in my kitchen sharing a cup of tea. I take a deep breath because what I’m about to share with you feels so vulnerable. Then I courageously confess…
I’ve secretly battled with adult cystic acne for years…the kind where it feels like volcanos are violently erupting underneath your skin. There were some days I was in so much pain that, I swear, it felt like I was growing a third arm out of my chin.
I wanted to crawl out of my own skin.
I desperately sought out surface approaches for relief: getting facials regularly and buying hundreds of dollars’ worth of new face products.
But nothing was making a difference.
My acne was painful and getting worse.
At my wit’s end, I turned to the same tools that I teach my clients.
As I poured my feelings on the pages of my journal, I realized, just like with emotional eating, that my acne was simply a symptom of a deeper problem.
What we see on the physical level, like acne or excess weight, is a mirror for what is going on in our internal world.
Willing to look within, I saw layers of anger, rage and extreme self-loathing that I had stuffed down, suppressed. Now it was painfully erupting out of every pore in my face.
I committed myself to an “emotional detox” using the same powerful process that healed my emotional eating called Digesting EmotionsTM to help me easily and peacefully release the thoughts and feelings that were no longer serving me.
Two weeks later my skin was completely clear!
I’m still shocked that the very same way I healed my emotional eating helped me clear my skin. But it also makes sense because our bodies are merely a screen onto which we project the nature of our thoughts.
Digesting EmotionsTM helped me surrender psychological sludge and remove emotional sewage. The healing of my skin was simply a reflection of that removal.
Now it’s your turn… are you secretly using food to escape the feelings you don’t want to feel?
This is complimentary, my gift to you.
See you on the other side!
With all my heart,
