There were emotions associated with those experiences, as well as thoughts that may have sounded like “I am only loveable when I’m taking care of someone else” or “my needs/feelings/thoughts don’t matter” or “I’m stupid, ugly, slow, only good for sex, etc.” These thought, beliefs and emotions get programmed into your cellular memory as an energetic vibration, which influences your relationships with people and food for the rest of your life. You may become a caretaker, you may trade sex for a feeling of being loved or wanted, you may choose partners who punish or withhold love and affection, or you may use food as a way to punish or reward yourself. You will often find yourself overreacting, or acting like a younger version of yourself, when these old vibrations are “triggered” by a present day experience.
Let’s look to the basic laws of metaphysics help explain this. Everything is energy. All energy has a unique vibrational frequency. Like energy attracts like energy. Did you get that part? LIKE ENERGY ATTRACTS LIKE ENERGY. This means that on a vibrational level, below the level of your conscious awareness, you will attract people, situations and circumstances in your life that are a vibrational match with your predominant thoughts, beliefs and emotions.

These are not necessarily what tell yourself or what you want to believe, but they are hidden deep in the subconscious and are running the show. You will continue to attract these things until you change your vibrational frequency, or unique energy signature. You do this by releasing the old programming that is held in your cellular memory. Stay tuned for more information in future posts about how I do this with clients and how you can begin to do it for yourself.
