TAKE CONTROL OF YOUR EATING TODAY

Everyone Will Think I’m Fat!

As I stepped onto the stage to introduce my mentor, Margaret Lynch, these words surprisingly were NOT running through my head.

Demonstrating the crazy reaction most people have when they tap for the first time :-)

Demonstrating the crazy reaction most people have when they tap for the first time :-)

In the past, speaking on a stage in front of 150 people would have been preceded by a month of rigorous dieting. My inner dialog would have been completely consumed by thoughts like, “Oh God, my thighs are going to look so enormous!” “What the hell am I going to wear?” “Everyone will think I’m a total fraud…who the hell do I think I am talking about weight loss, when I’m struggling myself?”

But there was none of that this time, just peace, acceptance, confidence, and an inner knowing that I am enough, just the way I am. My only thought about body size wasn’t until I was actually standing on stage when I heard myself say, “Holy crap, I haven’t even thought about how fat I look! Wow, this is cool, all that Third Chakra tapping is really paying off!” I couldn’t believe how calm and relaxed I felt.

The third chakra relates directly to your personal power, how you hold that power and how you interpret the power of others.

Where weight loss is concerned, it dictates your willpower and your ability to exercise self-control. Anodea Judith
, the author of Eastern Body, Western Mind: Psychology and the Chakra System as a Path to the Self (one of my most valued reference manuals) says, “your relationship with yourself will mirror the relationship you have with your parent or authority figure,” so if you grew up fighting your authority figure, it will be highly likely that you will fight yourself as an adult.

How does this play out in your relationship with food?

  • If your parent was controlling or dominating, you are likely to rebel against any food restrictions or diet plans, repeatedly sabotaging yourself like a child who wants to fight back.
  • If your parent was absent or passive, you are likely to have the same attitude towards yourself, without rules around food, and never saying no to anything you desire.
  • If your parent was deceptive and indirect, you will be a master of avoidance and manipulation, both to yourself and others, and you’ll probably sneak food while publicly dieting.
  • If your parent used criticism and shaming to control you, their critical voice will replay in your mind ad nauseam as the soundtrack to your life

So here’s what I want you to do:

Close your eyes and imagine your authority figure standing over you. Imagine them at their very worst…criticizing you, controlling you, or dismissing you. Make them as big and ugly and vivid as possible, see their facial expressions in crystal clear HD, and then imagine you have a big plate of delicious food in front of you. Take note of your reaction to the food. Do you want to eat it? Or do you want to push it away?

Notice your intensity on a scale from 0–10 and start tapping through the points:

Look at you
Controlling
Dictating
Critical
Just plain mean
Oh no, I will NEVER be like you
I vow to never be like you
I made this vow, deep in my third chakra
And I’ve spent my whole life proving how different I am
From you
I work my ASS off, so that I’m not like you!!
But the truth is, I am just like you…to myself
I am critical and judgmental
And just plain mean, to myself
And that makes me angry!!!
And so sad!!!
Thanks [name of authority figure – Mom/Dad/Auntie Jane etc]
You really screwed me up
I’ve spent my LIFETIME fighting you
Fighting this
Vowing to never be like you
And here I am
Sabotaging myself
Hurting myself
Because of you

Fill in the blank here with words you want to say to them, just let rip and continue tapping through the points until you notice your body relax.

And now that I see the truth
I can open myself to healing this
Because the truth is, I’m NOT like you
This is an old vow
And it no longer serves me
So I am choosing right now to make peace with this
And I am choosing right now to STOP giving away my power
Because that’s exactly what I’m doing
When I hurt myself
When I sabotage myself
I’m being just like you
And now that I see this truth
I can begin to heal this
Because I’m not like you
I’m not like you at all
And I am choosing right now
In this moment
To forgive you
Because through forgiveness
I claim my power
And allow myself to succeed
This is my true nature
Totally amazing in all my glory
Proud and confident and powerful
In my own right
I am claiming my power today
Right now in this moment
And I am choosing to allow my success
And let my true nature shine

You may need to spend more time with the tapping for negative emotions before you can get to the positives. If you haven’t done much work around this relationship, this might be a highly charged exercise for you, so just speak your truth and keep tapping through the feelings that arise.

I LOVE this work and I LOVE helping you.

Hugs,

xoxo

P.S. If you’re struggling with self-sabotage and want help, there are a few spots open in my small group program.

Each week I coach a small group of students and custom tailor practices and techniques to fit their needs. 

We keep this group small, but if you’re receiving this email that means there is space available!

Schedule a call right now to see if you’re a good fit for this program.

Students in this group report a 90% reduction in their emotional eating within 2-3 months. And the results are permanent!

    Great script, Brittany! Thank you.

    I’ve gotten rid of so many limiting beliefs working with you over the last 10 months. I’m taking so many big steps out into the world again. This weekend I’m giving a talk about my artistic process to a group. I haven’t spoken publically to a group in years! And I’m writing a book with a doctor that should be published by the fall. It feels like I’m finally coming back to myself. Thank you for this. Little fear is still by my side, but no longer runs the show. When opportunities present themselves, I assume the Universe is delivering them to me because somewhere in my vibration, I’ve asked for them. Thank you for helping me get out of my own way.

    Brittany, wanted to thank you for sharing such an enlightening technique that makes my days brighter! I used to be an emotional eater, now I’m facing some new challenges in life – I know they are good things because they help me grow, but sometimes I doubt myself and keep hearing the negative voice coming out. Your tapping technique has helped me wash away some of the deepest self-doubts, making me become stronger and fearless day after day. I can’t say how much I’m grateful for it, thanks!

    Brittany, I got exposed to your techniques and programs a couple of years ago. I’ve found you, your techniques and information to be resonate with me. It has allowed me to work on areas of my life I never knew how to. This tapping script is only one way you help people. You have so many tools that have helped me. I am so glad I found you and your program!
