Freedom from Emotional Eating

Emotional Eating

 

Book: “Freedom From Emotional Eating” by Paul McKenna

Book Review by Mary Mikawoz

Paul McKenna is a successful author in Great Britain. He has been described as a modern-day guru with a mix of Dr. Phil and Tony Robbins. He offers a number of techniques for dealing with emotional eating and emotional overeating.

He sees the industry of diet-clubs and diets in general with the billion-dollar industry as a farce. The industry know that its substitute products do not work and that dieting does not work and yet they continue to sell their wares. Over 70% of people who go on diets regain the lost weight and often more.

The new “normal” is not a good normal. Over one-third of British people and one-half of Americans are clinically obese. This is absurd that in western countries with overwhelming amounts of food, that there are people starving themselves.

Paul McKenna says there is his Golden Rule of Four. First, you should only eat when you are truly hungry. Second, you should eat what you want. Third, however, you should eat consciously. And fourth, you should stop when you are full. These golden rules have been written in about in his previous books: “I Can Make You Thin” in 2005 and “Hypnotic Gastric Band” in 2012. Both these books have helped many thousands of people to lose weight. They provide the basic outline that this book also includes but more.

Paul McKenna says that the book is only half of the products he offers. The second important part is the audio and video downloads associated with the Hay House website. You have access to his Hypnotic Trance, to “Listen While You Eat,” the Emotional Balancing Technique, Stop Self-Sabotage Technique, and the Havening Technique. He offers some hypnosis to deal with the emotional aspects of overeating. A person usually eats to numb their negative pain and doesn’t want to deal with their negative emotion such as sadness, anger, grief, fear or depression.

McKenna’s method deals also with associated reasons for self-sabotage when the real reason for the original action was for self-protection or self-preservation. It the past, they may have decided that a certain emotion could not be dealt with because it was too scary and needed to be protected by another method of dealing with the suffering and pain and so they compensated by overeating or emotionally eating.

Finally, there are success tracker sheets which keeps you on target by asking simple questions and also whether you have used certain techniques that day. Eventually, a person gets a handle on their emotions, even the negative ones. Gradually people lose weight and this method is more long-lasting because it is not a fad or passing fancy.

The Aha! Factor

Book: “The Aha! Factor: The Intuitive Guide to Getting What You Desire and Deserve” by Mariana M. Cooper

Book Review by Mary Mikawoz

I feel as if the author Mariana M. Cooper or Mari has been a long lost friend of mine. We have so much in common. Her journey into the spiritual realm started back in the 1980s as did mine. She has many insights that I agree with. Some I already knew but others are written out in such a way that they make more sense. As well, many of her spiritual habits are ones that I have been doing.

In the beginning of the book, Mari explains the Bull’s-eye of Energy which consists of three rings. The first is your aura which extends from your body for 50 feet or 15 meters. The second ring is the soul which extends 500 feet or 150 meters from your body in all directions. It is vast and impacts much more than you realize. Finally, the last ring is the spirit which extends indefinitely and is part of the entire universe. It is the interconnectedness of everything physical and non-physical and has no limits. Through focussed thought you are engaging the Bull’s-eye of Energy. Until you use it, is remains neutral and not in use.

From there there is the energy grid or Energetic Communication System (ECS) which is a massive web of light just like a cosmic spider web which interconnects all things. This reminds me of the ever-present Internet and its capacity to be worldwide. The ECS is where we manifest, magnetize, actualize and attract our desires and intentions. It works in conjunction with your five senses of touch, smell, taste, hearing and sight. The ECS consists of your intention, your intuition, your telepathic ability, your channeling ability and your capacity to receive and perceive both physical and energetic information.

The Aha! Factor is the ability to take information and make it understandable in a context from many sources. The Aha! Factor uses intuition a great deal and to understand its modern context, one only has to look towards Oprah when she gets the insight of having a conversation with someone or something finally makes sense in a new way. Your Aha! Factor uses the four clairs – clairvoyance, clairsentience, claircognizance and clairaudience. Your intuition uses signs, symbols and synchronicity. Your Infinite Self interprets all information because it uses our entire being from the energetic part of ourselves to our physical part of our life.

There is so much information and good understanding in this book that it is impossible to go over each aspect in this review. It is best to get a copy of the book and read it for yourself. I highly recommend this book for people who are aware of being spiritual or are into a new age/way of thinking of enlightenment.
