If you suffer from constipation and bloating it is time to revisit all beliefs regarding food that are stored in your subconscious mind.
Hey guys, today I would like to start a discussion on this topic because this is something that I have been suffering from for the past 2 decades. This may sound like a long time, but hey, I am turning 36 years young this month. Bloating and constipation started to bother me when I was 15yo and it continues to bother me occasionally until now. The difference between then and now is that now I know the reason why.
Imagine your body being a beautiful ecosystem. Full of life. Think of it like a little planet of its own. It is full of biodiversity and different living communities. It thrives when everything is in balance. It suffers when this is not the case. Just like our planet earth. I love to use this metaphor. Consider this. The quality of your body‘s ecosystem depends on your choices; food (quality&quantity), your thoughts and your emotions (positive&negative).
Imagine your mind to be the government of this ecosystem. This is so important! Our mind is everything; Conscious and Subconscious.
Conscious mind is the mind that responds to our conscious choices. For example, we can make a conscious choice to stop kcal restricting and give our body as much food as it truly needs (see my previous post). Conscious mind is the place where our true power always lies. Whatever we choose to focus on.
Subconscious mind is the mind that carries all behavioral and cognitive patterns that we have been collecting from our childhood on. These are the “programs” (the sets of beliefs about how things SHOULD be) that we learned from our parents, family, friends, schoolteachers, culture and the mainstream media. You may have heard the saying: “Get out of your own way”. What this saying really means is that we can always make new conscious choices.⠀⠀
Have you heard of this concept before? Are you aware of your “subconscious programs” and if so which ones are the most difficult for you to change?⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀
