This applies to energetic eating as well. Jung says that power is the shadow of love. Power-games in relationships play out as boundaries being encroached, avoidant-anxious type dynamics and abuse, in extreme cases. Energetically, these are the very same **predator-prey** type scenarios described in the article. Attachment-disordered individuals actually feel like pieces of their soul is being eaten when caught in relationship-dysfunction. The fear of being eaten changes their behavior and in some cases, makes them run, hide and avoid Love (food) altogether.
“Vigilance comes at the expense of other critical activities, such as eating.”
“Prey can literally be scared to death”
