How Can I Overcome My Bulimia?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Chris, who says: Throughout my life I’ve overcome a number of obsessive-compulsive disorders and addictive behaviors including alcoholism. However, after 34 years (I’m now 46) I still suffer from bulimia. I’ve been in four in-patient centers and worked with several therapists and counselors and I can’t figure out how to move beyond this. I understand all about eating disorders, I have significant conscious self-awareness, I’ve worked with an energy healer, and I’m at a loss for how to rid myself of this problem. Any insight, ideas, or guidance would be helpful.

The Council says what you planned before incarnating was simple, but when you arrive on the Earth path it doesn’t seem so simple. It’s not like a specific past life is influencing what you chose. What you wanted to do in some form was teach.

You planned in spirit to become “trapped” in different disorders and you wanted to go through them. The way you’d get out of them was to think of every challenge you faced. What did you think while you were in each disorder? What did it feel like? But most important, what did you learn?

As an alcoholic, or bulimic, or any negative pattern you felt trapped in, you wanted to learn what it felt like to be in each situation. Go back in time, think of everything you went through, and ask yourself what you learned when you were an alcoholic and wait for some ideas to come to you.  Then ask what else you learned. It’s like peeling an onion. What did you learn? What else did you learn? And then how did you change the pattern?

What will help you complete these challenges you set up is to learn from each situation and then to tell people about them. This is how you wanted to teach. You wanted to go through each challenge, feel what it was like, and find out what you learned. What kept you in each pattern and what helped you get out of it? As you focus on still being bulimic (or any other challenge you bring into your life), when you focus on what you’re feeling and what you learned, you’ll complete the challenge.

This will help you learn how to face your challenges. The most important thing to ask is what it felt like being in it? What did you learn from it? How did you handle the challenge emotionally and physically? And how did you get out of it? All this information is what you planned in spirit to put together in a way to help others come through their own challenges.

What’s going on in your life concerning your bulimia? Why are you in it? What pushes the button that makes you bulimic? What does it feel like? Is it a control issue? Does it bring up feelings of being weak or abandoned? It’s up to you to search what goes on within you physically, emotionally, mentally, and put this information together. When you look at the other challenges you had and you see why you went into them, what was going on for you? How did you get out of the challenge? You’ll find the pattern you’re looking for and it will help with your bulimia.

Your bulimia isn’t any different than your alcoholism or any of your other challenges. Go back into these issues and see how it felt. What got you into this challenge and how did you come out of it? What did you learn from this challenge? Will the way you came out help others? This is what you planned in spirit: to go through each challenge, to have the experience, the feeling, the thoughts, the emotions, and then to change the challenge by getting out of it. And then you wanted to help others with your knowledge. This is exactly what’s happening. There will be a similar pattern that you’ll find as you go through each challenge you set up and it will help with overcoming your bulimia.
