Childhood Trauma and the Necessity of Self-Protection
“Just believe in yourself. Even if you don't, pretend that you do and, at some point, you will." - Venus Williams
Maybe you’ve lost a little, here and there, maybe you’ve lost a lot… but you’re probably wondering why you’ve hit a plateau or even worse why those pesky pounds return!!
You might be asking what the heck does spirituality have to do with weight loss ??
We’re going to get there, but first let’s go over what you might be thinking.
My emotions make me eat perhaps I should meditate more
I’m distracting myself maybe I need to be more present
I'm an empath and I’m holding onto others energy
It’s my karma and I have to accept it
We hear those things spoken. Probably even have these thoughts ourselves. None of those things are actually true. It’s time to look closer and go deeper into the truth of that extra weight!!
Have you ever been asked what’s holding you back or making you unhappy and you’ve responded by saying…
“My problem is .. this weight..!”
"If only I could lose X pounds (or kilos)"
That is NOT the problem at all.
The extra weight has a purpose.
It serves a function.
It has been a solution to a problem.
It all goes back to an early, traumatic disconnection from our soul or true nature.
There is nothing more frightening and influential in our lives as disconnection. It leaves us so vulnerable that the nervous system absolutely must to create some way in which it can protect us from what it perceives to be a threatening, unloving environment.
This whole process is automatic. You can't control it. It is the way nature works.
The underlying energetic pattern that created the extra weight, must be addressed. To merely work at losing weight without this underlying healing of the original trauma, will inevitably lead to the roller coaster ride of taking it off and putting it back on. It's like rearranging the furniture on the titanic.
