View Full Version : What on earth is this???
12-07-2009, 11:31 AM
Ok all of you. I have a question and I kind of know what some will say...those who advocate percentages that is. I am prepared for that.
My question. Does anyone feel like they are just not getting what they need somehow....IF they are emotionally off kilter(ALOT) and cant seem to strike a balance.? I KNOW I get way more nutrition than conventional so thats not my question.
Like is it nutritional? Recent mainstream people seeing what they are needing to do different (than all raw) has made me wonder. Am I NOT LISTENING to my body?
Or is it really that I am not that percentage but rather very very high raw, some days all raw? Would adjusting that out make all the difference in the world in my emotions and feelings????????
Also a consideration is that I am putting out a whole lot of toxic debris daily (in the toilet). I feel in detox most of the time. I want to feel vibrant again and energetic and motivated!!
an added note, I was doing way better a bit ago until I had some heavy hitter stress in life. Even before that I had this to some degree with the emotions.(and I cant afford Angela book right now..eeek)
Ideas please and thank you in advance. You are the best!

It's very important to combine spiritual practices (meditation, yoga, etc.) with health to feel and be at your ultimate best. If you're already doing some, you may want to explore that further.

Well, it's not all about the food. Do you need a friend? A councelor? A fireman?=)>
Cravings and addictions are very sneaky. You can think of 1000 different reasons for wanting to eat some cooked foods if you entertain the thought.
Emotional detox is something we don't discuss nearly enough. For me, things have come forth from years ago, fresh and painful, with a heartwrenching freshness that is very weird.
Let yourself feel and analyze the pain and confusion, and work it out, either with a friend or with your journal.
What do you feel like you are missing specifically?

Yes it the fireman definitely...haha just kidding.
You are funny.
Good thought provoking questions.
I have not seen many cravings. If I go for cooked food, I dont even want it nor do I like it,it appears to me to be merely to slow down the raw and painful sharp emotions.
What am I missing? Definitely not ENOUGH letting it out to a trusted friend. Holding it in, trying to be strong (hahaha), worrying,not being present IN THIS MOMENT!
Courage I suppose to do what it takes. Dwell more in fear in my life and operate from there more these days than from a place of love and passion.
Wow thats a start huh?

I ditto the spiritual practice comment
We are whole being so a holistic approach to our healing is in order
and remember we don't live in a vacuum so their may be things in your environment that need to be eliminated for your total well being hathave nothing to do with the food.
I remember years ago while on a stint of high RAW I had an aching desire to quit my job. Couldn't "afford" too so i didn't but I was miserable and becasue my mask were peeling away and my sneses where heightened it became increasingly more difficult to work with fake ass, intoxicated, overmedicated people eventually I was LIBERATED FROM THAT GIG!!!

Thank you lifeagift, I have followed your postings and seen your liberation. Not to that degree, but this has also been my recent experience.
However it then sets off a whole new challenge of what to do now and how to create income to take care of myself as well as now being more dependant on others=their opinions about what I "should" do. This all merely complicates my already chaotic thoughts of what to do and how to do it.
Interestingly what keeps coming up emotionally is the word "vulnerable". I would love to disappear the idea I have that when I appear to need help, it then maes me appear to be a lil child that people feel the need to mother. I have been independant for over five years now and to go to that "victim" state of mind curls my hair and frazzles me.
It could be simply my perception. I dont see these folks as helpful but rather forceful feeling that I need to do this their way.(go dig ditches if thats what there is to do)
I struggled in the ol place for some time because it no longer aligned with all I had become. Now laid off permananently, out of desperation and fear(icky) I have looked at similar positions because thats what I know. :eek:It is the last thing I want to do.:mad:
I see clearly my passion and feel on top of the world while doing that. However still dragging my feet bigtime. What is this????
I clearly need a major breaktrough!!!

Perhaps try getting away from the computer, go out in nature and write lists of what you need help with. Ask yourself what's wrong--there's noone else there to make you feel juvenile and weak for needing help--just you and the Universe.
I won't tell you to go dig ditches or eat meat, if you want to talk=)

Oh thank you.....I love your suggestions Thick!
All the ideas about going into me and seeing exactly what is there are very good. That feels key to me. Thankx. Will let you know.

In my humble opinion, too much stress is much worse than any junk food - not that junk food is good, but I believe there is much more to a healthy and balanced human being than a perfect diet, there is also enough sleep and rest, emotional balance and happiness, strong and nurishing relationships, physical activity, etc.
I have been through some major stress this summer and it completely threw me off balance. Even though I was always eating high raw, it seemed as if my body wasn't assimilating the food, was rejecting it, and I became weak and started having cravings.
Daily yoga practice and a lot of meditation definitely helped. I know that you cannot always avoid stress in your life but you can try to counterbalance it, by finding some activities outside of work or any stressfull situation in your life. Spend time in nature or write a journal or meditate, there are meditations groups to join, etc.
All the best,

Thankx. I just got clear on one thing. Loss, that one can do nothing about to recover (and it is a huge loss) is at the root of this.Thank you Anais
