Instincts vs. Addictions…

???????????????????????????????Listen to your body, protect your instincts…
stay in your power….

What makes some people tune into their instincts and others not?

I use to watch people drinking as a young adult…kids in college and others. I would barely sip a beer as I would observe their behavior as it became distorted and erratic. Nothing about it appealed to me.

I always enjoyed and preferred being in my feelings, my emotions, able to see clearly and being sharp in my mind.

But as a young adult, one evening at a nightclub, I drank three strawberry daiquiris. I felt the buzz and was having fun on one, so more must be better, right? The next morning, I was sick as a dog and was wiped out most all that day. I listened to my body and protected my instincts and never did that again…

As an adult, a glass of wine is great with dinner and occasionally drinking a bit too much is fun, but only on occasion… done too much and it loses its appeal as it makes a person sluggish, foggy in their mind and craving more…

Drugs, I never touched them. Well, I did smoke marihuana once in my mid-twenties. Why? A friend had brought it from Mexico and we were having a dinner party and well… But, I hated the smell of it and the way that it made me feel… I listened to my body and protected my instincts…

I have always been tuned into what is ‘right for my body’. What to eat that is good for me and what is not.  I detest fast food, but some crave that greasy, chemical taste.  About 20 years ago, I was driving on a trip and was starving. So, I got a burger at a fast food place. It tasted good, while I was eating it. I am sure only because I was so hungry, but later my stomach felt sick. I listened to my body and protected my instincts and never had fast food again.

I don’t take prescription drugs, unless absolutely necessary. I think the less chemicals you put into your body, the better. Sure sometimes, you need something, such as an antibiotic… But since, it is pure, my body corrects quickly.

Years ago, I had a surgery and was prescribed medicines. I did as the doctor prescribed. A friend was visiting the day after the surgery. She said, “Ann, your face is so red. It looks like you have spent days in the sun.” I looked at myself and knew something was off. I researched everything I was taking. I figured out what was causing the reaction and read why it was prescribed and to continue taking it didn’t make sense. I called a pharmacist friend who ‘confirmed’ that I should not be taking that drug, and certainly not that often and he questioned why the doctor would prescribe it as he did. I stopped taking it. I didn’t need to ‘ask’ the doctor because I knew instinctively and figured it out on my own. When I went in for my post op check up, I ‘told’ the doctor that I stopped that drug entirely and he said that’s fine. I only prescribed it as a precaution. Soo.. ummm…Another visit, I was in the waiting room and a ‘drug sales-person’ walked in and had that ‘particular drug’ advertised on everything that she carried.

Concerning your health, you need to be your own advocate and in order to do this, you need to be aware, tuned-in and alert to your instincts. But if you are addicted to anything and focused on escaping this will be more difficult if not impossible to do. A doctor is just a person, a technician of the body… nothing more… and certainly not a ‘god’… that you do as they deem without questioning… although, many want you to think of them in that way.

Over use of prescription drugs can be just a bad as recreational drugs. We see continually ‘some drug’ that was once considered ‘beneficial’ is shown to cause all sorts of negative issues in the body…

Many people don’t listen to their body and give their power over to others. They may keep doing what is ‘actually’ making them sicker, until they dull their minds, bodies, instincts, emotions, feelings and everything else…

We need to listen, honor and use our instincts to ‘know’ what it good for us, or not, and if our instincts have been dulled by years of alcohol, drug, or chemical addiction, sex addiction, fast food, non-thinking choices, giving our personal, instinctual power-over to others, we are less likely to ‘know’ what is right for us and what isn’t. As we have lost our innate, God-given body awareness through the use of chemicals and addictions…and this makes us more easily led…

We see all the time, over-weight, bloated people mindlessly stuffing their grocery carts with foods full of chemicals…Beer-bellied guys loading up on more beer as if in a coma. This is what marketeers want… get people addicted and they will have a strong income stream forever… and that is with foods, medicines, drugs of all kinds, including government control over the masses, etc…

Addictions distort our instincts, feelings and emotions. Addictions to anything…even the addiction to turning our power over to doctors, lawyers, the government, teachers, someone we ‘think’ is an ‘expert’, or some kind of an ‘authority’, etc.

The most important instinct for survival is to know what is good for us and what isn’t and when recognized that it isn’t to stop it. And those who want to control us for their benefit, don’t want us to use our instincts and to be in our power… they want us under theirs…

They want you addicted…even as they ‘claim’ that they don’t…

Be your own authority, stay in your right mind, keep your body healthy with the use of few chemicals…avoid being addicted…

Listen to your body and protect your instincts…

Sounds like a plan, huh? What do you think?…
