In the last part of our When Food is Your Mother online training we’re going to be talking about Changing How you Grow.
This is important because often we’re filled with a lot of frustration, alarm/anxiety or discouragement about our painful patterns with food. These emotions can get stuck and impede the growth process – we fight against ourselves rather than coming alongside.
When we come alongside in support, there is more levity, compassion, and trust.
Instead of doing the same thing (that doesn’t work) over and over and getting stuck, we try something new! We adapt.
New ideas and new ways of responding arise.
Perhaps you bring in some humor and levity to soften resistance, frustration and the “you can’t make me” and “I don’t want to” voices.
Perhaps you bring in play to move intense emotional energies, like the intense energy of frustration, criticism, or craving.
You may bring in structures, rituals, routines and boundaries – what I call scaffolding – where you’re needing shoring and support.
Things begin to move and flow, and ease. Learn more by kindly watching the video below. Enjoy!
