The path to recovery is a spiral. I like to envision it as a labyrinth that the spiritual seekers have used for decades. These labyrinths are believed to bring a sense of equanimity and resolution.
The path to recovery is heartfelt because it asks of us to move away from linear rational thinking, to tuning into that gentle inner guiding voice.
The path to recovery asks of us to shed our armours and drop away our thick skins. To drop away control. To resolve to never self-abandon ever again.
The beauty of dropping control and moving into the flow of the feminine is alluring and freeing.
Incredibly freeing, and like diamonds, your healing comes from the pressure of resistance, of obstacles that you are destined to overcome.
It is essentially, a rebirth.
I no longer tattoo recovered anorexic on my forehead because that is no longer my story.
I see those years in the wilderness as such. What. A. Gift.
I see that girl as such a trooper, doing her best to be and right all wrongs, a strong being coming of age to this me now.
I want to share a bit of an experience working with a client with disordered eating.
In week three, she said to me at the end of our session: "I can't believe I have been treating my precious body so badly for so long. I want to love myself and my body as much as I can to make up for it!"
In week four, this client wrote to me: it is hard but I keep reminding myself that it is a sprint, not a marathon.
I welled up in tears reading this message because this was the very same precious being who came to me in week one with low energy and sadness in her eyes.
I remember telling her what I am going to tell you now: if nothing changes, nothing changes.
There are days when it feels impossible; but the difference that stepping into faith makes is vast.
As we work together energetically, we take all the resistance and acceptance to the body so we can embody all of it － the immense, infinite love, as well as the shaded stories that have been swept in between cavities, forming mental blocks that result in disordered coping mechanisms.
We shed the need to know how. We just need to root into where we can start and go from there.
What will you choose?
