C a n “ T h e G r e a t e s t LOVE of All” Help Heal Anorexia?
by radio host and copub Marchia Carnicelli Minor
Learning Who we are is one of the most precious Gifts we can give ourselves! A Gift that only we can open! In a world that has so many mixed messages to Be, to Think, to Look like someone else there is no doubt as to why so many women ~ & men also can think so lowly of self that they find themselves trapped in a vicious cycle of ups and downs where the downs out number the ups!
Then add on top of that the mired of things such as poor relationship experiences, family issues, certain type of religious beliefs, competition of many sorts we can see how low self esteem may find its way into our young people’s lives in the form of eating disorders such as Anorexia. How do I know this can be so?
Because I myself walked through the opportunity of making a decision to BE me; to Love me; to Take Really good care of me. It was a time that became very clear that I was being given an opportunity to make a choice! A choice to care enough for myself. To reach deep down inside and reconnect spiritually.
A time when my inner voice said, “STOP! Stop comparing yourself to others and falling short! Start recognizing & expressing YOUR talents & gifts! There is only one of you and you are as unique as each & every other person on the planet.” I began to fall in love with myself ~ the Greatest Love of All from which all others flow! It is the reservoir from which to draw. We can only give what we already have!
When we realize who we really are and are grateful for our own talents & gifts we can truly begin to live & be the person we were born to be! Yes Anorexia has to do with a disorder of eating, however, that is only the result of what is being felt ~ or not felt inside our being. Once again I will say that when we truly love & like ourselves for who we are magic begins to take place! It all begins with us and our recognition that we are a part of something much greater! Something that is holding all things together. When we are living our purpose ~ our passion we are H a P p Y beings!
We look forward to each moment with anticipation & excitement which is how it is meant to be! In my conversations with people I share the importance of finding what one is passionate about. What creates an excitement that carries them through each day eager to be living and experiencing what life is offering. I also recommend that they turn off any negativity that is making its way to them in the forms of relationships that are not healthy & supportive. In my opinion I do not need to tap into the many forms of media feeding me THEIR side of things whether we are talking about TV/radio/newspapers etc.
I recall years ago as a child hearing things such as: “Be sure to read the newspapers so that you know what is going on in the world.” Listen to the news on the TV & radio to again be sure I am up on what is happening. The interesting part of all of this was that at the same time I was feeling…NO! No I am not feeling that doing that is healthy for me.
Making our own decisions about what we are allowing into our lives; into our Hearts; into our souls is so very important! So remember if you are experiencing eating disorders ~ yes you want to get a handle on the eating issue, however, from my experience when we go directly to the issue ~ to the cause then we are more able to HEAL! To Heal our wounds that are leading us to harm ourselves. To the real source of it all. May we all experience The Greatest Love of All so that true Healing may take place! Be your own Beautiful!
