Have you ever noticed that all your good intentions about eating only healthy and natural foods tend to walk out the door just as you walk into your parent’s or other family member’s home? Or how insanely hard it is to not eat the junk food your sweetheart puts on the table in front of you? We are used to thinking of this as a lack of willpower, but the good (and bad) news is that it might be more to it than that. It actually might be one of our primal instincts taking over the show, and causing us to self-sabotage at that crucial moment.
I don’t know about you, but I have the tendency to go for about three months in one mode, with a definitive shift in my body and soul after these months have passed. It has been that way for so many years now, and I just had it down as me being unable to keep stable and patient – but today one thing finally clicked in place for me. What if this three month shift I keep experiencing is actually my body and soul connecting with nature? What if our inner animal simply knows it’s time to change with the seasons, to be able to adapt fully to the life giving nature?
