Problem/Goal: Complete disgust with mushrooms
Date: October 2017
Technique: Healing the past
Summary: My uncle came from Poland and moved in with us when I was a kid. He was helping out my mother who was suffering from mental illness and in hopes to alleviate some of the stress she was experiencing trying to raise 3 kids. In Poland he would go mushroom picking and when he was living with us he would bring me mushroom picking in the local wooded areas. I loved being out in the woods learning about mushrooms. I was probably around 6 or 7 years old. One day we came back from mushroom picking and we laid the mushrooms outside in the sun to dry. What I did not love was the mushroom soup he made. Can you imagine a boiled broth of mushroom juices? Very potent taste. I refused to eat it and he was the authoritarian type of adult figure and refused to let me leave the table until I ate the entire bowl. I forced it down and from that point on I could not stand the taste of mushrooms.
Belief: Mushrooms are gross
Result: As I got older I really wanted to incorporate mushrooms into my diet for the health benefits. After my hypnotherapy session I added mushrooms to meal regimens. Shiitake are currently my favorite!
