just one question and i'd like everybody to answer it...
HOW DO YOU MANAGE TO CONTROL YOUR RAW EMOTIONS???
i can't, i don't know why,please help me,sometimes it is too much...
The fact is when i eat cooked meals,it is like being asleep and then when you eat raw...BOOM...My emotions explode like a bomb....
suddenly you are so aware of what is going around you...but i can't deal with it, it is very very good in a way but the way it delivers its power to me, it is like a powerful bomb ready to explode...so powerful that 2 months ago, i lost my job because i couldn't stand the hypocrisy of my collegues...sometimes i behave like i am away, i mean i am there physically but my mind is somewhere else...speaking of my job, i left it without understanding what was going on, i was acting like another ME, like my conscious mind was not there to control what i was doing...and my subconscious dominated me.Even with my relatives and friends, when i found they were lying to me on some subjects i decided to avoid them in my life...and i do the same with all the negative things,like a fast where you stop all the crappy foods...it's all or nothing, where am i going???
i need an explanation...please i need help...i am destroyed right now...

It is ok. Promise. Trust it all. What this appears to be, as I went through it, is the unpeeling of YOU, to your inner core and who you really are, with all stripped away. Getting to your real self(which your subconscious IS doing ) and to what you really want for your life.
I have experienced so much inhtis area. We are literally altering our cellular structure,changing so much, lifting our body as well as our mental, emotional, spiritual self to awhole other level.
Jobs might not work for us anymore. Associates might not work for us anymore. Places where we live might not work anymore. All this is an adjustment to our new altitude.haha Just like going to Colorado, those mountains are a whole lot higher than lowlands. So it takes time for the body to adjust.
Some have mentioned "Raw Emotions" book..check it out and see if it has anything to help you. I havent read it. It might though.
I found that there are not many discussions on this topic. Yet is is huge for raw foodus and really be great to be addressed.
Know it is ok. Keep rowing the boat. All there is to do. Take what comes, losses and gains(because they are all gains in disguise). Whenever I went away from a job, I said thank you inside because I knew it was moving me to a greater adventure.
It is ok..promise. You are loved and not alone. pssst lots of running helps..hahaha Oh you are not "destroyed" you can do this.Give yourself much affirmations of all good things and what you want, not what you dont. Thats just what I do. You do what works for you.

thanks for the reply, i really appreciate.What you wrote makes me understand myself more.It is great to know that i am not all alone to go through this process...thanks a lot
ps: i would like to add another thing, without this board and people like the members of the rawfoodtalk,and you are one of them colorawdogirl, i think that raw people can get lost...
i mean i was scared,no joke here, i was scared because i changed so much, my mom was the first one to tell me...she was sad because she couldn't help but that's life i think.
i never thought in my entire life that something so big would happen to me...
i am so confused right now, i don't know what to write...
I almost divorced my husband after all of my changes inside. So many things in my life are different. The good thing is, I know I'm the better because of it all. Now, I'm happy with myself, my husband, my life. It's all good. There were some scary emotions in the interim, though! :eek:
And I don't take crap anymore, that's for sure.

thanks for the reply eva, so i didn't dream at all when i say that it changed my life completely...your testimony gives me so many evidences
but i don't understand why people don't talk about it...i know life is personnal but it's great to know that sort of thing...in this way we don't become insane...
i am a man,29 years old and i was scared to death like a 5 years old little boy...
now i would like to add another part to my story...i was a bus driver, i left my job,i wasn't fired.I left it without asking myself why.Now i am unemployed and you know what,it's been 4 years that i drove buses,today i don't want to do it anymore,completely...i am still asking myself why i do this...i've never thought my life was going this way...i am becoming the opposite of my old self...
thanks to everybody for helping me.

I'm sorry you're having such a hard time with this right now. Hopefully things will level out for you soon.
To be honest, I don't have any advice or answers for you. In my life, raw has done the complete opposite of what you're describing. It has helped to control and mellow out my emotions. I used to swing wildly between happy, sad, irritated and just plain angry oftentimes within a very short period of time. Since I've been raw I am far more accepting of others and their choices, my marriage is a million times better, I'm a better mom and overall I'm just more chilled out. I still SEE all of the hypocrisy and negativity around me but if being raw has taught me anything it's to focus on what I can do and leave everyone else to make their own choices.

thanks for the reply,but what i see is that raw made you become the opposite of what you were...like i said,i am the opposite of what i was and i need to calm down otherwise i will destroy myself...
i am conscious now, i just need to be focused on how to dela with my emotions.
Maybe eating more will help...i don't know but i am happy that i talk with people about my issues.thanks a lot to everybody

raw emotions are a very real thing...and yes they creep up on you. I had to deal with not going to work some days because of the mood shifting. But overall because I went 100% my balance was very steady. Its just a choice you have to make to feel yourself through the ruff paths. Convince yourself of your divineness:D and be good to yourself. You are always learning something new about yourself.

One thing that helped me was sitting down with my brother and he just listened while I cried and yelled and worked it out for myself what was at the root of my distress. Sometimes, for me, I begin to get stressed out in my daily life, or I feel inexplicably angry or sad or addicted to something. And sometimes it takes a while to get to the root of what is really going on.
When i started detoxing last week, a lot of it was very emotional. I felt like I was uncovering some past hurts that I had numbed away, or pushed away, or covered up with addictions and habits and comfort eating, etc. But I sat down with my brother (and it doesn't have to be a sibling. in fact it might be better if it's someone impartial. but someone youdon't mind crying in front of), and I told him to just hold my hand and really listen to me. I didn't want his advice, I just wanted to create a safe and supportive space for me to work my stuff out. It really helped, and it especially helps if it's ongoing. You really get down into the gritty, painful stuff, but then you're free to live your life and you aren't so overcome with confusing "where did THESE come from" type of emotions.

Angela Stokes has a VERY helpful book devoted to this topic - check it out on her site rawreform.com
I am reading it for the second time because it was so useful to feel more normal (yes, this IS normal - lots of people have this experience, myself included) and he provides many specific strategies to assist in the process.
all the best,

You can't control your emotions. They are just responses to your thoughts. So the objective would be to guide your thoughts. I love Abraham- Hicks material the most(they have bunch of games or processes to help), but there are a lot of others. Just google Abe Forum and read to see, if it is something that resonates with you.
