So what has your Inner Child been eating? Could it be that that part of you that takes over and consumes you when it comes to food and eating is actually a younger part of yourself? Weight loss hypnosis is a powerful and effective tool for getting out of a food trance. Learn more with Slender For Life™ and checkout Seattle weight loss.
When you do experience losing yourself in a pint of Ben & Jerry’s, a box of chocolates, a batch of cookies or a bag of chips, it can be a great opportunity for healing. The following exercise is another good way to counteract a lack of mindfulness and your food trances.

As soon as you become aware that you are eating for emotional reasons, imagine being in a movie theater up in the projection booth next to the projector and looking out the little window. Look down into the theater at the top of your own head, so that you are watching yourself. In fact, also imagine you are seeing yourself watching a movie. There on the screen is a film of you gobbling down the ice cream, cookies or whatever food you just consumed unconsciously. Really notice that you up there on the screen doing the emotional eating. Get in touch with that character on the screen, and really connect with what you are thinking and feeling.
Now, how old is that little boy or girl on the screen? What is that part of you thinking? I’m not good enough, no one cares, it’s not safe. What is that part of you feeling (anger, hurt, fear, sadness)? Did you experience yourself as a child up on the screen? If not, then think about your earliest memories of these same emotions you experienced on the screen. Often, the answer is you were less than 10 years old. It makes no difference how wonderful a childhood you may have had. It makes no difference whether or not you were overweight as a child or if you ate emotionally as a child. What is it that this little boy or girl really needs to feel safe—is it love, attention, what?
