We are all comfortably used to being addicted; to having something we crave and then satisfying that craving. Cooked food is the mother of all addictions, and when you kick it all your other addictions fade away too.
But it can be a strangely disquieting feeling to not have any addictions when you have been hooked on something all your life! It is my belief that most of us are in fact addicted to addiction!
Sometimes when we first go raw, or when we take our raw diet to a new level, we have moments when we might feel ungrounded, without purpose and a little empty, and in these moments we might feel a slight sense of panic.
When this happened to me today I was able to identify the source of the feeling and simply come in to the awareness that I am not addicted to anything. This awareness then allowed me to shift in to being ecstatically happy about my freedom from addiction!
If you find yourself in this sometimes overwhelmingly light space, relish the sensation, take a deep breath and enjoy that amazing feeling of abundant potential and possibility that is yours for the creating in!
Do you ever feel like you are in need ofÂ a new anchor without your addictions to dictate the course of your day? How do you handle this?
