〰️ Speaking on a podcast interview earlier this week, I was brought back in touch with the in-betweens of my recovery journey. How did I get from full-blown disorder to fully recovered?
I was transported back to my time of seclusion in Vermont on a creative residency to which I (miraculously!) got accepted.
I had to stop my HIIT workouts because I was living in this double-storey house that was made of cards. No, seriously. I had a residency mate downstairs who was in her seventies, and on my second morning in residency, had marched upstairs to say, "I swear there is a dinosaur in this house!"
Divine timing and guidance from the Universe, all of those shuffling in the spiral of time and no-time. So many things happened at the same time that looking back now, I know the Universe was conspiring to lead me onto the path to freedom from my ED.
I had to try something else for activity purposes, and so I started to take long walks in the surrounding mountains and vales alone, writing in a tiny cubicle room, and while hoping one day to see her book come to fruition, I was also thinking about food, looking forward to the next meal as my body continued to navigate this newfound freedom to eat, to replenish, to nourish.
On that time line I was surrounded by stillness and I had the spacious luxury to rediscover myself, to heal my heart and to give my body ample room to do its work and recover at its own pace.
Trusting and not getting in our own way is vital.
🥀 So, to that girl who regrets never having enough courage to connect deeper with all her course mates, who chose to go on a solo pilgrimage to Old Montreal and sat on her own in her tiny bedroom all day, who tried to put on a brave face in the canteen when everyone else was already finding their own tribe, I LOVE YOU. YOU ARE LOVED. YOU did your best at the time in the only way you know how. 🕊
Precious being, know that you can also get to that place of true freedom and connection with your body and food. And you don't have to do this alone.
I am opening up space for April intake for my disordered eating mentorship.
It is by invitation only so please book in for a free Share and Heal Session with me to map out your challenges and see if we are a good fit to work together.
I don't know where you will end up, but I do know where we can start with 100％ commitment from both of us. 🕊🍃
