It’s Time

It’s time for you to awaken.
it’s time for you to shine.
It’s time for you to radiate your light
…what you always knew you’d find.
It’s time for you to come out of your shell.
…to emerge and prosper with your own story to tell.
It’s time to let go of the stories from the past;
the ones that just don’t fit the bill.
The ones that just can’t last;
the ones that have had their fill.
It’s time for you to feel Mother Earth
beneath your solid feet.
It’s time for you to trust Her wisdom,
and to finally take your seat
in the car she’s bought for you.
Go on, embrace the ride within.
The road will surely have twists and turns,
but it’s paved to make you win.
There is so much that you’ve yet to give.
There’s so much that you’ve yet to tell.
So, shine sweet girl, shine.
Go sweetly croon, go yell.
It’s time for you to come out of the closet;
to put on your angel wings and fly.
Being yourself will save you,
It’s not something you can pass by.
It’s time for you to awaken.
it’s time for you to shine.
It’s time for you to radiate your light
…what you always knew you’d find.

Sugar, Shame, & Spirituality

I’ve had my share of food hang-ups. From restricting my calories to over-exercising to compulsive over-eating, I’ve been through the ringer. I spent nearly seven years caught in the throws of eating for everyone else but myself. I ate for whatever was the trend of the moment, according to the fitness magazines and blogs I read. I ate for what I thought was healthy, according to RDs and doctors. I ate according to the number of calories my body “needed” to function, according to a team of doctors that helped me recover. But none of those tactics helped me recover. After choosing to recover discover from my eating disorder, it was hard. Really hard. I’d maintained this tight sense of control around my food and, now, I was trying to teach myself to be free around food. This concept was foreign to me. Tuning into my body and eating “intuitively” didn’t make sense to me. I needed more. It was so confusing coming out of my outpatient program with a specific calorie amount to hit and transitioning into intuitive eating. I felt so lost.

So, one day, as I was sitting in meditation, my inner soul sister said to me, “Eat how you want to feel.” My whole body lit up and it suddenly made so much sense to me as to why I hadn’t made any strides. I was still trying to follow a “plan” of some sort, but I didn’t really want to the plan. I didn’t want structure. I wanted freedom. So, from that moment on, I committed to making all of my eating choices based on how free it made me feel. With every food that I ate, I asked myself, “Do I feel free eating this?” And if the answer was yes, I ate it. If the answer was no, I sat back and re-evaluated the situation. This is how I’ve made eating part of my spiritual practice. I want my food to inspire me, I want my food to support my energy, and I want to feel connected to the food I’m eating. All of this is freedom to me. It’s incredible what happens when you start to eat the way you want to feel. And what I’ve learned is this: When you are spiritually satisfied, you automatically become physically satisfied.
