Women Food and God #2

Finally i have come to some practical suggestions from the author.
She talks about The Voice, the inner monologue that critiques how you look and what you do.

The voice controls impulses, it mediates between the proper and the outrageous. Whatever it says to you, the underlying message is that your impulses cannot be trusted.

The voice sounds so much like you that you think it is you. You think you are telling yourself the truth. It renders you incapable of acting with true discernment and intelligence.

Firtsly, become aware everytime it shapes your thinking, and disengage from it, telling it no or stop. Disengaging can be difficult as you’ve believed everything it has told you.
Speak out or write what it is saying, not in first person as this keeps you blended with the voice but as the voice speaking to you.
Notice what it does to you, how you feel, if you feel energy in a particular place in your body.

Being free from the voice allows you to make authentic decisions about your life.
