- So when we talk about food disorders and body image wounds, in the context of 7-day healing, one of the big factors is that in the process of using "perfection of body" as a shield against criticism or shaming, we use the body as a tool as literally a shield ie as a THING, to defend us from outside attack
- and the problem with this is that the body is us to - it isn't a thing - in many ways my body is the most "me" thing there is
- and so it needs our protection also and love and yet we use it like this dead lifeless thing, like a car, a vehcile -0 the thing we ride in but that is not actually us
- but its not true - we are the body and the body is us
- so a key transformation is to shift our view of the body form being an it to being a thou - an other - a part of us a counterpart, fully valid and worthy of our respect and love and protection
- and as a counterpart it has its on mind and heart and you can literally talk to your body - metaphorically speaking - and ask it questions and if you have never done this the first time you do it you will get an earful
- it will be like barfing out there is so much the body wants to say to you - so many things so many abuses so many hurts it has suffered at your own hands that it will finally get its "day in court with you" :) :)
- but you don;t hav to be afraid the body obvioiusly loves you you're still here still alive it obviosuly hasnt given up on you :) :)
- ive worked with hundreds of people who have had this issue and when they finally sit down and "talk" to the body in the very specific way we teach in 7-day healing program,
- the number one complaint and agonizing pain the body will come back with - the greivance the JUST GREIVANCE of the body is that
- i feel like you only love me conditionally - you don;t love me no matter what
- only if i'm slim hot and tall buff whatever
- and i am your BODY - i make your life possible - to enjoy food wine sex life, wind in your hair sun on your face, everything
- and you piss on my and yet i still keep taking care of you
- i I love YOU without condition, but YOU don't love ME without condition
- so then, this is part of what comes out in the 7-day healing program when it is specifically applied to body image wounds
- and the question then is what does your body actually have to say when you finally regard it, not as an it but as a thou and allow it to have its say?
- and then even after that, how do you come back in to reconciliation, so that you will never do this to your own self again and actually come into a deep lifelong harmony with your body, at long last?
- it would be incredible, right?
