Esthetic Devaluation or Silhouette Conflict
Updated: Jun 18, 2022
When you suffer from aesthetic devaluation or conflict with your silhouette, you look in the mirror and feel disgusted by what you see. Disgust is an involuntary survival mechanism, a strong and automatic, primitive response of rejection towards what can harm or infect you. From the point of view of the New Germanic Medicine and Biological Decoding, when you feel disgusted, there is a reduction in glucagon, creating hypoglycemia or low blood sugar levels. A reparative physiological response will make you hungry to replenish blood sugar. You will look for something sweet or salty, like a cookie or chips (simple sugars), to bring blood sugar levels back to normal.
Aesthetic Devaluation or Silhouette Conflict is one conflict that usually accompanies overweight and obesity because it leads to bingeing on sugars, which will lead to more weight gain. You might feel guilty for not being able to stop the reactive eating, which will create more feelings of disgust when looking at yourself in the mirror, creating a never-ending loop that keeps you in a latent conflict without healing. Aversion here comes from a social point of view of everything that deviates from our customs of what we see as standard, such as the appearance of people's bodies. Society imposes increasingly demanding beauty canons. We all want to be impeccable in the body exam to which society subjects us, and overweight and obesity are not well seen and accepted in many cultures.
SufferING from aesthetic devaluation works as a blocking conflict. Because overweight is multifactorial, meaning that many types of conflicts accompany it, it often sabotages all attempts to lose weight even if the other conflicts have been dealt with. It is the person's negative image of themselves that intensifies feelings of devaluation and impotence due to not losing the extra weight despite all efforts—creating a vicious circle that blocks all healing attempts. This conflict must be worked on several times until you reconnect with the pain that comes with it, empty it, and you teach yourself to see yourself with love.
A real, symbolic, or imaginary event, such as forced touching, kissing, or any abuse, can bring feelings of disgust, giving the person hypoglycemia, as discussed above, keeping them in the same loops of feeling disgust and therefore eating, therefore gaining more weight.
It is essential to have a positive attitude towards our bodies and be able to look at them with love to unblock this conflict.
