So most of us have seen huge dessert cases, either in bakeries or at stores like Whole Foods. How do you feel when standing in front of a huge dessert case? Tonight I went to the Whole Foods on the NW side of Chicago on Cicero Ave. As an energy reader I work with many people and often help people who want to alter their eating habits. I enjoy reading the unique issues that impact each person’s eating choices and experiences.
Repressed emotion definitely comes into play when standing in front of a huge dessert case. It must be repressed emotion that blurs my thinking as I look at all of these mini fruit tarts at Whole Foods. My mind goes in a loop between:
1. How delicious.
2. I want many. They’re so tiny.
3. They are $1.49 each.
4. It’d be way too expensive with all the ones I want. Better have none.
5. (Loops back to #1)
I swear this loop goes round and round about three times in my mind, then I pull myself away either to go towards another part of the store, or to debate another dessert selection. I never get the tiny fruit tarts, yet each time I see them so beautifully arranged, the mental loop begins.
I ended up buying a “chocolate bomb” shown in the center row of this photo. On the way home I realized some of the repressed emotions involved in my own dessert thought process and was able to let go of some of the blocked energy. When Lorenzo and I split the small “chocolate bomb” at home it was fantastic. Chocolate mousse with a dark chocolate shell- very light and “surprisingly good,” as Lorenzo says. The “bomb” in the name is a real misnomer, as it’s a pretty delicate flavor. I ate it so slowly, with hot tea. I haven’t savored a dessert so slowly in years. I know for sure it was because I had released some of my emotional baggage and was able to be more present with the experience. How cool. Same calories, greater experience. Woo-hoo!
My next task is I’ll have to clear even more blocked, repressed emotion so I can actually think clearly about those mini fruit tarts!!!!
