How to Feel Full (without calories)

Happy Easter! The day of resurrection, renewal and rebirth.

Today I want to talk to you about how to feel full – and I’m not talking about after your large Easter dinner (although if you did have a large Easter dinner, I hope it was yummy).

For me, this all started when I was so unhappy and I used to constantly say to myself, “If I died tomorrow, I’d be really pissed off.”

Listen to how that all changed around for me.

I’m talking about peace, happiness, serenity and that full and completely satisfied feeling that is possible when you’re living your life in connection.

If you’re not feeling completely happy, full, content and satisfied in your life or your relationship, please give us a call. It’s all about moving out the energetic blocks and gunk, and moving you back into connection on all the levels — physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.

When you’re living your life in connection, everything falls into place — you know your life purpose and you start living it, your relationships (with yourself and everyone else) support and nurture you, and everything seems to flow. If you want some of that, give us a call:

Today I want to talk to you about Feeling Full.

Twenty years ago I was a very unhappy and dissatisfied person. I was a divorce attorney in Omaha, Nebraska and I was 40 pounds overweight. I had 2 prevailing thoughts: I hated my work and I hated my body. I felt stuck. I was 47 years old. My mother had become ill with cancer at the age of 47 and eventually died at the age of 51. My mother had also been unhappy and dissatisfied, and she felt stuck. She finally came un-stuck by leaving the planet.  

I remember thinking all the time, “If I died tomorrow, I would be really pissed off.” I remember thinking that if died tomorrow, I would have never experienced a true feeling of happiness or joy, full, deep satisfaction.

It was also interesting how that showed up with my body. Because I was constantly dieting, I felt hungry all the time. But even when I would eat, I would most often eat way past the point of feeling full. I don’t think I had experienced the feeling of feeling full or completely satisfied. At least, not enough to really know what it felt like.

And then it all changed. I came to Sedona for the first time in 1999, had a life-changing experience, left my law practice and started coming out to Sedona to do my own personal healing work. I did that for 3 years. About 2 years into that, I had the most incredible experience of sitting in my kitchen in Omaha, looking at the huge trees swaying in the wind, and this intense feeling came over me and I suddenly had the thought, “If I died tomorrow, it would be okay.”

Through all the healing work that I had done, I had suddenly and without any warning, come into a place of deep contentment. There wasn’t anything that had happened — I hadn’t seen God, I hadn’t just won the lottery and I had no idea what I was going to be doing with my life or my work, nothing at all had happened. This feeling of peace and serenity just sort of took over me.  

A few weeks ago, I had another one of those moments. I was on a plane and I suddenly had a crazy thought about the plane crashing. And I was suddenly overcome with this rush of joy and love, and this thought, “You know, it wouldn’t be my first choice, I love my life so much, but I wouldn’t be pissed off like I would have been 20 years ago. I’m so happy, I’m so full, that if I went tomorrow it would be okay.” I was so overwhelmed by it, that I started crying these tears of joy, and then my husband got concerned because he thought something was wrong. But it wasn’t wrong, it was beautiful.

The same thing happened with my body. After so many years of crazy dieting, manic exercising, buying exercise equipment and pills, working with trainers, etc., etc., etc., I had an experience that came out of the blue where I suddenly started loving my body. This had come as the result of doing lots of work and sessions, but when it came, it came very suddenly and without warning. I was shown that my body was perfect exactly the way it was. That I could be happy without being thin. This sense of joy, peace and serenity just overwhelmed me and I stopped all the crazy dieting and exercise. I just stopped.

And then here’s the kicker. The minute I did that, with no effort, the weight just started melting off, without diet or exercise. I lost 40 pounds… it just melted away. I’ve maintained that weight loss and my latest medical checkup was the best it’s ever been.

When I eat now, I instantly know when I’m full. I’m full and complete, and I just stop eating. Sometimes the plate has been licked clean and sometimes there’s still food left. I don’t over-eat something just because it tastes good, I eat to that delicious point where I feel full, complete and satisfied.

Similarly, when I stopped pushing against my law practice and healed those unhealed parts of myself, all of these incredible and amazing circumstances came together and I started Sedona Soul Adventures, which has become the most satisfying, fulfilling and delicious experience of my life.

It is so incredibly amazing what happens when we finally allow this feeling of fullness, of deep satisfaction, to finally come into our lives. Because it’s a choice. The Universe is sending us everything and we are either allowing it in or not. Before, I wasn’t allowing in these feelings of being full. I thought I had to be thin to be happy. I thought I had to have the perfect job show up before I could be fulfilled.

When I stopped railing against everything and took responsibility for my own healing, everything fell into place. Everything came into joy.  

My prayer for you is that you could experience that kind of joy in your life. And you can. It’s just gunk and blocks that are holding you back, and we can find those, eliminate them and bring you back into connection with that highest part of yourself.

When you come back into connection, you experience that sense of fullness, deep satisfaction and serenity, that we’re all craving… and that we can all have.

We had a woman here a while back and she came to us saying she felt completely shut down and she had no energy, no zest for life. She had been to a bunch of medical doctors and they couldn’t find anything wrong with her.

In her very first session, her practitioner discovered that her root chakra was completely shut down, with no energy at all. The practitioner gently asked her if she had ever had any thoughts about not wanting to live and she burst into tears saying she did have those thoughts sometimes, she said she would never do anything about it because she would never leave her young children, but that she often thought, “What’s the use? What’s the point?”  

Then her practitioner discovered that her heart chakra was completely shut down. No wonder she didn’t have any energy. She had no energy from her basic life force and wasn’t feeling love or receiving love. No life force and no love – we aren’t meant to go through life that way!

Her practitioner had to spend some extra time clearing through the gunk that was there – she said it felt like sludge –  and had to do with past life times and things with her parents… but it all got cleared so that by the end of the session, all of her chakras were wide open and moving.  

In her breath journey the next day, she told me she saw all this white light coming in through all of her chakras and she felt herself completely filled with what she called, “the light of God.” She said it was the most extraordinary experience of her life.

She called me a few weeks later to tell me that since she’d been home, she had so much energy that she was running rings around everyone!

Her husband has decided to come out for a retreat. When he called he said, “I’ll what she’s having,” just like in the movie “When Harry Met Sally.”

We get that a lot when people go home… their friends and loved ones see the changes and want the same thing.

My prayer for you is that you can experience this same sense of fullness and contentment. It’s waiting for you.
