Duality is just like a photograph that is black and white.
Black – White
Dark – Light
We all have darkness and light within ourselves, also known as a shadow self – the parts unseen or not wanting to look at.
Dense emotions such as fear, shame, guilt, judgments etc, hidden aspects, wounded ego are examples.
It’s when we go within and shine a light, an awareness on that darkness of those energies, those memories, those stories and change the energies from fear, shame, guilt, judgments etc to forgiveness, love, awareness is when we truly start emerging and freeing ourselves.
To bring more light to the dark we then become lighter literally. BEing a higher vibrational energy of forgiveness, love, joy etc are light AND our truth.
We are literally more Light – therefore Love.
Duality is supposed to exist in black and white photos not within us!!
Finally, I have released the book – Food & You – Choose You that I’ve put together and have had out for testing for the last little while!!!
It’s a compilation of all the tools I have used over the years that have made a difference in healing my emotional eating and coming back to more of me.
In my late teens and 20s I struggled with an eating disorder / emotional eating and there really was no help at the time. I then went on to be a Raw Foods Chef – healthy yet extreme and it well it can be anal.
Don’t get me wrong – I am all about health and real foods but not militant like – that is not healthy.
I tried counselling and it just never worked I always left feeling worse than when I walked in. I’m not saying that it doesn’t work it just didn’t work for me so on my journey I tried many things.
When we succumb to addictions, it’s the inner feelings of usually low self-worth which is very low self love, love and not wanting to feel pain – usually from childhood – it helps with a relief from it.
That’s been my experience anyways and through the use of these tools and even deeper digging within because I’ve got this unquenchable thirst to keep going and find the truth and some of that was finding more truth of me!!
I had my eyes open to much and learned that we are not humans we are spiritual beings having a human experience but we walked through the veil of amnesia and into an enslavement society where it actually is insane and we’re all trying to fit in and it’s f*^@ing ludicrous when you truly step back and gain a bigger perspective.!!
We’re constantly bombarded by advertising reminding us we are not good enough which is utter bullshit as we are all perfectly imperfect and unique and we need to embrace that.
I mean what is perfect and who is perfect anyways??
In this book are some tools that I’ve used along my journey that I have used to interrupt patterns in programs and believes that kept me look into lower vibrations of not good enough, self-hatred and self abuse because let’s face – it an eating disorder like any other addiction – alcohol, drugs, sex, shopping, gambling, aren’t in the vibes of love and self love.
Also, the images, left over from my recipe books, have al been encoded with higher frequencies – everything IS energy – so this book was created from Love – I know where you are if you are struggling with emotional eating and I am here to share that you CAN turn this around. You have too – the world needs you.
The less we buy into the illusions the happier we are and become – those aren’t who we truly are yet we think they are.

Rise Above Emotional Eating so You Can Love Yourself Again
Ancient Rule of 21: if you do anything for 21 days in a row, it will be installed as a habit.
– Robin Sharma
We were ALL born pure, innocent and full of love – somewhere along the line the story got distorted!
The drug of choice for many, especially women, is food. Something every human needs, every single day. Thats what makes it harder to break free.
Along with that drug often comes constant self-criticizing, loathing, judging, and obsessing about what one ate, didn’t eat, body size, and shape. No matter how small the perceived imperfections, their importance becomes distorted.
Yes, media, advertising, parents, teachers, friends, or siblings may play a role in seeming to remind us that we aren’t good enough the way we are but it is we who buy into it, we who believe it.
It’s a disorder gone rampant. More than 91% of women dislike their bodies and themselves, many to a dangerous and debilitating extreme. 80% of 13-year-old girls have already tried dieting, and 95% of people with an eating disorder are between the ages of 12 and 25.
I know – I’ve been one of them.
The mental, emotional, and often times also physical, self-bondage is excruciating – yet many, myself included, hide it well from others.
It Can Seem Lonely – We Don’t Have to Live that Way!
21 Days Food and You is ALL about installing new ways of thinking and being and interrupting what you are doing or being now.
After my struggle with an eating disorder, that only in the last couple of years have I started sharing my story – I found ways in which to heal myself, find myself and return to self love – regular counselling did not nor never did work for me. I am not dissing it – it was just not for me.
I’ve done many things over the years to keep diving deeper within to find the real me, the hidden me, the wounded me so that I could come back to Self Love – which includes ALL of me without judgments and criticism – and hey I am not perfect.
When we let go of these programs that we think are us and running the show keeping us stuck in self destructive thinking and behaving – life gets better, we become lighter and freer.
In 21 Days I share tools and techniques that helped me – the great thing is you can redo it a often as you like – and it only gets better.
It’s a place to start.
Once you do – you will be happy that you did – it will open up new ways of thinking, feeling and even being yourself and others.
My wish for you is each day forward it only gets better – trust me – its’ worth it and so are you!!!
It takes courage to endure the sharp pains of self discovery rather than choose to take the dull pain of unconsciousness that would last the rest of our lives.

No 2 Bodies are the Same – Love Yours No Matter What!!
Real Bodies are fat, and thin, and both and neither and otherwise.
– Hane Blank
There is no wrong way to have a body!
– Glenn Maria
You were born to be real not perfect!
Cuz You’re amazing just the way you are!!
The problem isn’t with your body – it’s what you think of it and what you think of yourself – true self love is thinking love, feeling love, being love and eating love………not fear, judgment, hatred, criticism, jealousy, processed food (and emotions) or abuse of any kind.
NO two bodies are the same!!
Choose Body Love!
This is a body hate free zone – remember – there is no perfect body only marketing and advertising that reminds you that you’re not good enough and then the self programming loop you keep running in your mind. It’s time to tell it to f*&^ off – we have approximately 75 000 thoughts a day – most of which were the same that you thought yesterday, last week and probably last year.
It’s a program – delete it and reinstall one of self love and body love!!
The body is the only place your Soul has to live – so take care of it. Raw, Naked and Beautiful – Real, Authentic and Truth.
Never Give up on Your Dreams
Remember – there is nothing wrong with your body but there is a lot wrong with the messages that try and convince you otherwise.
