When you struggle with food, it can bring up so many feelings of shame. The very struggle can feel wrong, as something to be eradicated.
So you feel guilty for overeating and guilty for struggling to heal the overeating.
What if, instead, you looked at the holy “mess” of overeating as a privilege, a necessary and beautiful labor? As life’s unfolding itself?
There are things that long to be born through your journey of food. Your opening to this labor, to this wrestling match, brings them into form, into being.
Through you, and through your relationship with food, aspects of Love come into the world. Through you, connection and healing arise.
You are not wrong to wrestle. You are merely a holy midwife.
