Hershey’s White Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups

by OneMoreBite on June 6, 2004

After reading Candyfreak by Steve Almond, I decided to check out some of the products he recommended. One thing that came up were limited edition candies, such as the Hershey’s White Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups, so I looked and what do you know, a small local grocery had them! I bought one.

I waited a couple of days until the urge to try it struck, and then, I got out a knife. Yes, a knife. I pretended to have a tasting party, but I was the only one doing the tasting.

Taste wise it was good, the usual peanut butter filling, and the white chocolate was nice, but I wasn’t impressed. They were too skimpy with the white chocolate on the bottom of the “cup” so it stuck to the wrapper. I’d have to check see if the weight of the package was lighter – I wouldn’t be surprised if it were. Either that, or they’ve changed the ratio of chocolate to peanut butter – which would be cheaper for them.

Bottom line? I think they’re trying to pull a fast one. Guess I’m getting too paranoid for my own good.

I would like to suggest that aneohtr reason for the temporary relief and/or slow is a lack of mindfulness and resilience toward the issue being challenged and transmuted by EFT. Take depression: I defeated depression not just though using EFT but by anchoring myself to remember to notice throughout the day when depressed mood swings (or anger, anxiety, any non-resourceful feeling) would begin, challenging the feeling as nothing more than a conditioned state of my past triggered by an external environmental cue (a deep part of my old personality as a remembered sequence of emotional strategies,) releasing the the negative feeling with EFT (and aneohtr energy-psy trick in my toolbox) and then demonstrating a new feeling (a little help from simple NLP processes), giving the fifty trillion cells of my body the all clear signal for that cue. I understood that even my drifting thoughts were environmental cues for the subconscious body to respond. This is the mindfulness part.

It was like doing a personal peace process as an active daily task, and it became like a game. I decided not to trust any feeling that was negative, even if I believed the circumstance warranted it. This was the resilience part. I would tell myself that the story in my head I was just making up (true according to neuroscience,) and then do the EFT to release it. After a couple weeks I can remember waking one morning and I knew it was done. I had demonstrated enough new internal strategies and sequences of good chemistry for it to rearrange and express itself on its own.

I knew I had more work to do, but the new expression of self as a joyful being was emerging on its own, which is what it naturally does. Albeit it took some knowledge and information from my fascination with neuroplasticity, endocrinology, and even epigenetics (Read or watch anything by Joe Dispenza, Candace Pert, Bruce Lipton all enthusiasts of EFT by the way!)) to understand what it was I was doing to demonstrate depression, or the skill and mastery of expressing the neurochemistry of depression (or anxiety, or anger, etc) as a personality. Thus the science helped give me permission to unlearn my old self and recreate a new self, and EFT was the tool I turned to to transmute those old subconscious strategies. A change in diet and exercise only improved and enhanced my transformation.

Since my old personality was carrying the story of who I thought I was as series of triggers and responses, I chose to acknowledge and embrace no story as a neutral foundation to release from, and the new story of myself emerged on its own.
