This is one of my favourite topics. Cravings. You can guarantee that once you have decided to make a change in your eating ways, in your your health, you will likely become acutely aware of your cravings. Cravings for healthy food can indicate a more alkaline body. Intense cravings for salt, sugar, deep fried foods, caffeine and dairy usually indicates that the body is more acidic and may require some rebalancing.
Often we are too busy to hear these subtle cries or whisperings from our body.
Our bodies are wise beyond our knowing and creating time to listen will be well worth it, I promise. You’re worth it. (<<Tweet)
Cravings are beautiful messages from our body and instead of the typical avoidance and / or succumbing to cravings- this is the best time to slow down and have a conversation with it / them. Here is something you can try- on more of a subconscious, intuitive level....
You can ask these questions internally on the fly, and ask for signs, you can close your eyes and go that route OR you can take out a paper and pen and start asking questions…
First get grounded, big breath in and remember- whatever comes up is ok- let it rise up and out without judgement. Be kind to yourself.
Close your eyes and ask…
* Why do I have this craving?
* What is the message for me from this craving?
* What can I begin doing to fulfill this craving in more healthy ways for myself?
* Is there anything else that would be helpful for me to know about my craving now?
* Thank you.
OR You can even write a letter to cravings: “Dear (your craving)”… “From (your name)”. Then, flip the page and write a letter back! “Dear (your name)”… “From (your craving)”.
I guarantee you will be amazed by the wisdom of your body and your own intuition.
