I sit here again another day with this hunger feeling. I eat plenty but even 15 minutes after I eat a big meal, I am hungry again. After noticing what is going on for several days now, I know for a fact, it isn’t because I am hungry. And what else is different this time for me is it’s not in my tummy area where I usually feel the hunger pangs, but in my colon area. So what is it? Interesting and when I think about it, when I am hunger, I go and eat something but when my colon is hungry how do I feed it? I never thought of feeding my colon. I think of feeding my body, myself, but feeding specifically my colon? Is that not feeding my body? Is that not part of my body?
As far as I can remember, I have struggled with my colon and elimination. I always felt I had to take something to make me go, to have a bowel movement. I didn’t ever think the colon wasn’t getting fed because according to me, it always had too much in it as it wasn’t eliminating what was already in there. For a long time, I have not trusted that my colon can work on its own. According to me, it always needed help to eliminate the waste let alone now think of feeding it some more. What is my hunger telling me?
Well, when I look at the message my colon is telling me, on a non-physical level, I have for a long time, deep down inside, felt like I couldn’t go life alone. I never had to. It seemed like every time things got ‘hard’, I always had someone there to help me through the tough times. I wasn’t conscious of it before. It just happened. So for a long time, my body was trying to tell me to just trust that along the way, it will work itself out.
Feeding my colon, what do I feed my colon? Well the body feeds the colon the waste it doesn’t need. All what is not being used by the body, is dumped into the colon to be eliminated. I didn’t think I had to worry about that. So when that comes up and the elimination stops, what is the colon trying to tell me?
That brings to mind a story of a young lad who goes to an old sage and wants to learn his wisdom. As the sage shares his wisdom with the young lad, he notices that every time he would tell the young lad something, the young lad would say “Yes, I know”. He would share something else and the young lad again would say “Yes, I know.” So the sage suggested they stop for a tea. He makes the tea and starts pouring it into the young lad’s cup. As he kept pouring, it soon started to run over and spill onto the table. The young lad yelled “stop” but the sage just kept pouring. When he finally quit pouring the tea, the young lad looked at the sage and asked “Why did you not stop when I asked you to? The sage with all his wisdom shared “It is just like you with learning, you can’t keep putting new information in when you haven’t emptied out the old or what you no longer need”.
Where did my elimination system get blocked? It certainly appears to be on a physical level but what about how the non-physical level is affecting me. The mental level, my thoughts that come in the form of belief systems, where did I stop eliminating what no longer feeds me or wastes my time? What am I scared to eliminate that no longer feels right for me? The body knows what to eliminate from the body, but do we know what to eliminate from our thoughts. How do we recognize what is right for us and what to eliminate on any level? The answers are found in the charges that come up along the way in our day to day life. Once we are aware of the question, our answers will come at the perfect time for us like they have for me.
I know that when I clear those blocks, my colon will right itself. It isn’t my job to tell the body what to do. The body is a miracle machine and works perfectly on its own. I just have to get out of the way and ‘eliminate’ the need to have to direct the colon by telling it when it should or should not go. I just have to trust that the body will do its job.
How has your elimination systems working for you.
