'I choose to satisfy my mind, body, and spirit with things that support my highest good.'
overindulgence is something we all do from time to time. occasional bouts of excess usually don't do much harm, but when they become habitual, they can throw your mind, body, and spirit out of balance. while many people think of over indulgence in terms of food and drink, you can overindulge in many things, such as spending money or watching television. in it's most out-of-control state, overindulgence can lead to addiction.
amethyst - since overindulgence is closely related to addiction, try using the sobriety stone, amethyst. if you catch yourself in a pattern of over-indulgence, carry amethyst in your pocket and hold it in your receiving hand as you try to resist temptation. be sure to cleanse and recharge the amethyst daily if you find yourself using it frequently.
garnet - can help foster balance and prevent over-indulgence. place a piece of garnet under your mattress or pillow at night to help change your mindset while you sleep.
TIP; if you tend to over indulge in a certain area of your home or office, such as eating an entirety of food while you watch television, tape a piece of amethyst or garnet to your usual chair or couch in that room.
MEDITATION; if you find yourself in a pattern of over indulgence, paying attention to what is driving the urge to overindulge can help prevent it. when you catch yourself starting to overindulge or having the urge to do so, close your eyes and focus on your breathing. ask yourself, "what feeling am i having that is driving this behaviour?" pay attention to the answer that arises, and then imagine that feeling lifting away from your body and dissolving. finish by repeating the mantra three times.
