You’ve just experienced BECKONING.
Beckoning occurs when you have an unmet emotional need, want, or desire and substitute it with distractor, something that can’t truly take care of what’s not being met. A distractor can only temporarily take your attention away, but once you’re done using it, or its effects have worn off, you’re back to square one. You might even be further back than that, as you might have added shame and guilt to the mix.
HUMMING is different.
It happens when you listen from the inside to what it is you truly need, want or desire and then, directly address it. For example, when you listen this way, you eat because you’re hungry, eat the type of food that really satisfies, and stop when you’re full. In the case of alcohol, you don’t need to drink to numb yourself. If its cigarettes you reach for to relax, you instead use healthy ways that take care of your stress or discontent.
