These coconut chews are a delicious treat from Whole Foods bulk section. They are on the healthier side of foods to eat. They are coconut on the inside, covered with unsweetened chocolate. However, I wouldn’t buy too many as I found them hard to stop eating. Yum is my vote. Let me know what you think!
“As I am exploring the nonmaterial world I am examining food, our bodies and everything physical AS ENERGY. This energy is fluctuating so it is movable and changeable by the thoughts we think. In a sense our thoughts become a preview of what will manifest. So if you say to yourself, “I just look at those chocolate chip cookies and gain weight,” guess what? You are setting that possibility in motion. Are you thinking like velcro or like teflon? Freedom From Food: a quantum weight loss approach

I have heard so many times now that Coconut Oil any brand but preferably organic is the best cooking oil you can use for your health. Some people are even putting it on their face. I have used it to cook vegetables and even eggs. Also I have been told to take a tablespoon a day! Try it and let me know what you think!
I am sitting in my Sacred Garden listening to the rain as I imagine it cleaning away my old thoughts. (Think of your negative thoughts about food and weight). I freely let them go. What if I don’t fill this space with any thoughts and see what the universe brings me today. If I do add my thoughts I will keep them focused on what I desire already manifested and let the universe figure out the details of how I get to my desired outcome. I am the sculptor and the weaver of my form with my thinking. This is what I teach in my Mind/Body program Freedom From Food: a quantum weight loss approach.
“I know that my body releases all excess food and keeps the nourishment it needs for my health. I don’t have to know the details of the intricate ways it works to eliminate excess, I just need to TRUST my body”. Patricia Bisch
Energy Flows Where Your Attention Goes. When you are focusing on a certain food you ate making you fat such as chocolate, bread, cookies, cashews etc. you are directing that energy to create that physical reality on your body. When you are focused on your clothes that are too tight you are constantly bringing what you don’t want to you. When you keep checking in on your body to see if you are gaining weight, you are attracting that energy to you. Watchers beware! Its time to Trust your body to eliminate all that it does not need and function in the magnificent way it was created. Freedom From Food.
“The natural healing force within us is the greatest force in getting well” (Hippocrates)
“People who are thin (meaning in their perfect proportion rely on this pull in the body to always maintain their ideal weight. They never question it. They have a knowing that unneeded food will move right through them and not add extra pounds-and it does! I invite you to think like a thin person for a day and let me know how you do”! (Patricia Bisch)
“I remember learning about the body’s amazing ability to heal automatically when I was a small child. One day, I fell down and scraped my knee. Seeing blood on my knee was scary. I wasn’t sure what it meant or what would happen to me. However, soon I learned that no matter how often I fell down and scraped my knee, my body would somehow take care of itself. It would dependably send out white blood cells to kill the bacteria. My blood would clot, and my skin would form a scab. Then the scab would go away. No matter how many times I fell down, my body always healed itself like clockwork in an eloquent dance of health.”(Freedom From Food) Tell me about the times your body healed itself. And tell me times in your life when you remember eating and not gaining weight and your body took in the nourishment it needed from food and released the rest. Maybe when you were in Love, on a vacation, or you were a child.
“I am trusting my body’s natural elimination system to remove all excess weight and food that is not healthy for my body now!” Patricia Bisch
Starting in my 30s, I began the journey of developing my own healthy Inner Adult. At first, I resented taking on a parenting job that should have been done by my father and mother. I felt that I had been an adult all of my life, taking care of my parents’ disowned needs and protecting my sisters. I perceived that I had been robbed of my childhood, and now I was being asked to be a parent again, this time to myself. When would the time ever come for someone to take care of me and be interested in what I needed? However, there was no one else to do the job. My Inner Child was wounded and bleeding. I cared about her so I signed on, willing to build a personal relationship with her.
I remember journaling to get in touch with my Inner Child’s feelings. In my first communication, she told me that she thought that I was very boring and that spending time with anyone else would be more exciting than spending time with me. She said that she felt completely alone in this life. Even when we were together, she felt disconnected from the whole world and experienced that no one knew or cared if she was dead or alive.
Weekends, mornings and late nights were her worst times. She was in constant pain and had little self-esteem, feeling not enough in any number of ways. Through lots of crying and desolate loneliness, I finally came up with some suggestions for how we might play together. The first one was to paint. I would take large canvases and just let her throw paint and express herself. My fingers and anything else around were fair game for our creative endeavor.
Don’t get me wrong. This may sound like we were having great fun, but that would be very misleading. At first, it was just one step above pain—just OK and nothing more. However, I was willing to accept this baby step. We have continued to build our relationship in other projects, such as sculpting, painting and jewelry making, which even to this day are rewarding for us both.
Developing a bond with my Inner Child was not an overnight process. Her self-esteem was so low. I remember thinking for quite a long time that all the positive things I was doing were not building much of anything. It felt like there was a hole in the bottom of her boat.
At first, your Inner Child might react like a dog that has been beaten. When you put out your hand, she cowers. It can take awhile for an abused dog to trust that you are consistently going to be there for her and not hurt her. Therefore, when forming a relationship with your Inner Child, my advice is to stay with it and don’t get discouraged. Every kind move you extend toward her does count and is making a difference, whether you see it or not. I patiently attended to her as long as she needed it, not expecting her to feel strong right away.
Everyone encounters situations that have not turned out the way they wanted. I grieved for the part of my Inner Child whose dreams got dampened. Now she often lets me know when things are not right, and I have learned to listen and respect her. I find great wisdom in her feelings and gut responses. Her emotional state is directly connected to my eating and to my body.
For example, I noticed over the years that when I broke up with a man, I went straight for a binge of candy and ice cream. It was my symbolic way of giving myself the love I was not getting. Feeling rejected and abandoned, I temporarily soothed the pain with something I could give myself. (pg 89 Freedom From Food)
