How do we let out those emotions that are disturbing us inside? Food is the first thing that comes to mind. How often do we find comfort in food to soothe our ill feelings? A lot of times, we do that. Instead of facing the problem, sitting down with what we feel, and truly knowing what we want, we choose to numb the pain and ignore the feeling with food.

Or we cry. But how do we cry? Do we let the negative thoughts set in, so we let the emotions out and get done with it? Or we do other forms of crying — purging, binging, drinking, and what have you.

Yes, behind all this obsession with food is a big emotional battle that we are in. If only we learn to love ourselves again; this is where reparenting can greatly help. It’s about using emotional mastery tools to help with our triggers, making that inner shamer inside us become something productive. And knowing how to balance between giving in to something where the answer is food or just a really good cry to let the emotions out. It is about leaning into our most authentic selves in all aspects of life. Hypnosis helps us go through this journey toward lasting freedom and happiness.

“Binging and purging are that, when it’s happening, it’s signifying that there is a large emotion. And it could be from that shame or blaming oneself that needs to come out. And this is why it’s so easy to cure these things and to have it not be an issue anymore for people. And it’s a process.”¬†– Leslie Thornton¬†
