Healing in Tribe

If we look at Eating Disorders from the vantage point of coping mechanisms gone wrong, I think it’s important to consider how they might have felt helpful in the first place. I know this sounds dangerous because I certainly don’t want to romanticize them in any way and I’m pretty sure no person out there struggling with an eating disorder would wish it on their worst enemy. But in my experience as a therapist helping women in recovery, I’ve found there’s always a reason that an eating disorder has shown up and from what I can tell, this often seems to stem from a desire for connection in some way. Wanting to connect on a deeper level, or feeling as though you can’t connect, or even feeling the need for protection from unwelcome advances. The experience of an eating disorder is complex and can be confusing and consuming on so many levels. And if this piece – that of connection – is so important, then what better way to reconnect and heal than through the group process? Surrounded by people who understand how body image can play such a significant role in all of it, along with the experience of overwhelm and being torn between wanting to get better and not wanting to let go. The great thing about group is that you don’t have to figure it all out by yourself. When you’re surrounded by people in your tribe, you get a variety of perspectives, learn how others find success in recovery and can begin to see solutions in a new light. You learn the value in owning what is most concerning and important to you and as you interact socially, you start to find your voice and allow the group to act as your sounding board. The opportunity to both give and receive support helps to nurture awareness and acceptance of self and others. You learn to relate to yourself and others in healthier ways, by having a safe environment in which to test the waters; you learn what healthy boundaries look like and practice being assertive. And maybe most importantly, you get to see that others can experience similar difficulties and still grow past them. Not only that, but others in the group can bear witness to your efforts and validate your growth. If you’re considering it, I hope you’ll give it a try – group therapy may be just the thing that helps to propel you forward.

Connecting Body, Mind and Spirit for the Healing Process

Happy New Year! When I first sat down to write this blog, I intended to title it “Spirituality Can Go a Long Way” and proceed to list all the pros of starting a spiritual practice. I quickly got stuck as I began to consider the myriad of ways in which one can do this. Proselytizing is not my goal (though if religion helps, then by all means stick with it). I also had to consider the idea of “spiritual bypassing” where the endeavor for bliss is used as just another form of avoidance – something I would rather discourage. What I finally came to realize is that it’s not so much that I want anyone to develop a spiritual practice as I would like for people to consider the possible benefits of connecting with a spiritual sense in their healing process. This could happen during meditation or when talking to your therapist or just when practicing some cognitive therapy on your own. 

For some this may sound like a no brainer, but for others not so much. I have to acknowledge that some people have been led down some damaging paths, religion-wise, where a part of recovery entails healing the part of themselves where spirituality seemed to go wrong. But still, if we take spirituality out of the process, then all we are left with is what we “know.” And ultimately it seems that there is so little that we ever actually know for sure. Death and taxes, as they say – right? That’s it. So I think a spiritual connection can still be helpful in a very selfish, self-serving sense – and I mean that in the best possible way.

What I’m talking about, is the concept of being open to the idea that information may come from somewhere other than our minds – the idea of letting answers come to us as opposed to feeling like we have to somehow contrive them. I’d like to explore the benefits of this aspect of letting go, of not knowing, of giving things up to something that may feel greater than yourself. It’s a place where you may feel connected with god or the universe or ____(fill in the blank)____ by going within – looking for answers as they travel through you as means to stay connected to your body. Going within is the key here as I believe it is often the place where the most wisdom resides and also the place where the greatest healing will take place. For me, the creative process itself exists within the spiritual realm. I want you to try this in a way that keeps you grounded and in your Self – body, mind and all, as opposed to something that takes you away from where you are. The spiritual sense comes in when you can suspend what you “know” about a situation – and I’m not trying to say that what you know is either right or wrong, because it’s not that simple – but to suspend this information and create space somewhere within you where you can become curious and open about what else might be there or what else might begin to arise. This approach may not exactly seem natural at first, and definitely doesn’t always make sense – but I can tell you that it’s often the place where the most wisdom resides. It’s a place where you allow answers to present themselves. And still you engage your mind by being discerning – is this information harmful in some way? Is it helpful? How? You engage your body to see what resonates and holds true. And to hold this new information that comes to you, also without making a quick judgement, but to remain curious about it and see how it might play out. This new information too, does not immediately have to be right or wrong, black or white. But maybe it has something valuable to offer, to teach you. And the more you practice this, the more information you gain, the deeper your understanding unfolds. And when you think about it, this is also where you create some flexibility – to try things in ways other than what’s been keeping you stuck. It’s the place where you can see what’s on the other side of your defenses, what it is that a part of you may have been trying to protect for so long. Maybe it’s the place where you can learn about why it is that you’ve been doing what you do and at last you might begin to see an opportunity to create positive change. 

Another reason to invite spirituality into your practice is that you can intentionally begin to connect with a sense of compassion, kindness and unconditional love in a way that feels nurturing and supportive. And I really believe this does go a long way. One of my favorite meditations is the Loving Kindness Meditation where you bring to mind an image of someone that offers unconditional love, experience what that feels like in or on your body, and then practice offering that same unconditional love and kindness to yourself and others. If you’d like to check it out, you can listen to my version of this meditation here:

I do think that this type of openness and curiosity and going within can bring some wisdom and relief in ways that you never imaged. In the end, you may even be able to trust that the experiences you’ve been through may have a greater purpose than you currently know.

Loving Kindness Meditation:

May you be Peaceful and Happy

May you be Safe from harm

May you be Healthy and Strong as you can be

May you have Ease and Well Being

THE Two Responses to Overwhelm

As the holiday season descends upon us, it’s not really hard to imagine the things that potentially push us off kilter when faced with being thrown into or left out of the hustle and bustle all around.

On the one hand there might be considerable pressure to do everything; attend every party, buy the perfect gifts, cook for a zillion people and still maintain the usual responsibilities with work and relationships. And on the other hand one might find her or himself faced with loss for the first time or repetitive absence in some form or another. Add anxiety and depression into the mix and you can find yourself faced with an increased challenge just to get through the day.

As tempting as it may be sometimes to wait for something to change externally, you may find it helpful to know that there are some things you can try doing to get your brain back online and functioning the way you’d like it to.

You might already know this, but there are two typical ways that our bodies behave in overwhelm.

One is a state of increased agitation and the other is a state of feeling shut-down. Both can present on a continuum and can even be experienced together at one time.

In our brains, the vertical processing system is at play here: bottom-up and top-down, where information is taken in at the brain stem, sent through a series of channels up to the pre-frontal cortex (where we have the ability for rational thought) and sent back down.

Think of it this way:

Bottom-Up processing goes from Physical Sensations → Emotions → Thoughts.

Top-Down processing goes from  Thoughts → Emotions → Physical Sensations.

In the absence of overwhelm, this process is smooth and mostly unnoticeable as we take information in, establish that everything is reasonable and that we know how to respond, processing goes back down and we go about our day as usual.

But in overwhelm, complex chemical reactions disrupt this process as information is perceived as dangerous and gets “stuck,” making top-down processing incomplete – which might leave you feeling unproductive or even paralyzed.

In agitation mode, information stops at the pre-frontal cortex and physical sensations and emotion remain highly activated. The best approach here is to start cognitive, taking a top-down approach. Go outward rather than inward to make sense of the environment. It may help to make lists or read emails – try journaling or talking to someone who can help you understand. Not a good time to make important decisions. Not a good time to listen to moody music. Stay cognitive until emotions and physical sensations start to calm down and feel connected in a safe way again.

In shut-down mode it’s even worse where information stops before reaching the pre-frontal cortex and physical sensations, emotion and thoughts all remain highly activated (I know that this may look opposite, as shut-down can feel numbing and maybe even feel safe in some way). The important thing to know is that in this scenario you will be better off taking a bottom-up approach to get back online. Start with small body movements, connect with tactile sensations like knitting or making artwork, try tossing a ball or doing yoga, go for a walk. This is the time to listen to moody music or watch movies that feel empathic in some way. Eventually cognitive access will return.

And if it seems like both forms of overwhelm are happening, you’ll have to check in to see what part of you is more activated and start there.

At the extremes of either continuum, you might need help from professionals – a therapist, a psychiatrist, etc. But if you’re able to have some awareness of what’s happening, it can’t hurt to try these approaches to see what shifts you can make on your own.

And this time of year, you might even be able to get back to enjoying all – or at least some of – the great things the holiday season has to offer once again.

True Self-Love

It’s kind of a funny concept to preach self-love when so many of us are totally comfortable berating ourselves at any given moment.

…I know I did well on that test, but I should have done better.


…Look at how ________ she is, why can’t I be more like her?

It’s amazing how easy it can be to revere others and detest ourselves.

Have you ever asked what’s the point in doing that?

Have you ever stepped back and brought a little curiosity to this scenario?

What is the part of me that drives me to so dislike myself?

When you think about that dislike, can you feel it somewhere in your body?

Self-love isn’t just about loving all the other parts of ourselves that do good. It can start right there, learning to love the part of you that that is doing the self-hating.

Wait, what?

Yeah, I said that and I mean it.

I truly believe that there is always a logical explanation behind why we do the things that we do.

It’s not that we should ever love the experience of being beaten up – by ourselves or anyone else. And you’ll have to trust me on this one: you never deserve to be beaten up.

But we can love the part of ourselves that has good intention, even if that intention may be a little misguided.

Just as a test, try it out. Meditate and go inward for a moment and try offering some gratitude for the part that always tells you that you’re falling short in some way. Pay attention to the sensations in your body as you do this. What do you notice? Softening perhaps? This part of you wants you to listen for sure and it likes when you do.

Loving the intention of the self-critic is important, and it’s a first step; you may also be happy to know that you don’t have to forever be subject to its criticism. There is another way.

I found God in myself

and I loved her

I loved her fiercely

Riding Out the Waves

I’ve always appreciated the metaphor of water to describe the experience of emotion. Sometimes we feel waves gently wash over us and sometimes they come crashing down. 

When water is kind, we may not even notice. But when it’s turbulent, it’s definitely got our attention. What to do? 

Everything changes. Moment to moment nothing stays exactly the same. Even times when we feel good, or neutral, the waves don’t last forever. And the same is also true of turbulence. 

Waves will always arise and will always come to an end. So why are we so often taken by surprise? I’m guessing it’s because we’d rather pretend the waves don’t exist. 

What happens if we see the waves and go into them? 

It’s ok to be scared. You can own your fear. 

Try letting go of the stories that are there, and just be with the sensations in and of themselves. Just you and the wave. Prepare yourself as you see it coming and get on your surf board to be with the wave as you ride it out. Feel the strength, the pace, the volume. 

Ask what message it’s trying to bring you. What does it need from you?

Maybe it actually wants to work with you and not take you down after all. Let it know that you are willing to listen as long as it agrees to not overwhelm you. And you’re also not going to run away. It’s understandable to want protection from overwhelm, but emotion in and of itself is harmless. It’s there for a reason. What is it trying to tell you? What does it need you to know? 

Approach every wave as though it’s an opportunity to learn something new.

Time to Put on Your “Healthy Eating” Blinders!

I’ve been thinking about how hard it is to know what “healthy” means anymore. Especially when it comes to eating. Practically every which way you turn, it seems that someone has an opinion about what’s good for you and what’s not. If you struggle with an eating disorder or disordered eating, I’m guessing that there are times when Buddha’s demon Mara comes knocking on your door to tempt you with a quick fix.

But you need to remember that your needs are individual. The well-intentioned people out there handing out advice may be feeding you some potentially toxic stuff. Toxic for you that is – it’s not really your place to assess what’s healthy or not healthy for others, so why should it be ok if the tables are reversed?

So go ahead and put on those blinders that help to keep you on track. Know that your own unique path is tailored for you with the help of professionals that know you, your strengths and your struggles. While you can acknowledge that there is a part of you that may always crave a quick fix, you can also rest assured that there is another part of you that knows better – the part that can invite Mara in for tea, look temptation in the face, laugh and resist.

Your true Self knows when you are on the right path when:

  • You are honest and transparent with your doctor.
  • You have a nutritionist and are honest and transparent with her as well.
  • You are making informed decisions about food choices (balance in portion, selection and timing) to get the vitamins and nutrients that your body needs to thrive (notice I didn’t say survive. Thrive!) on a daily basis.
  • You are not restricting in any way (remember that restricting only sets you up for binging).
  • Your doctor and nutritionist are in communication with one another AND you are following the recommendations of your team.
  • You are doing the work, going to appointments utilizing supports that are available to you in forms of people, interests and self-help apps like the Recovery Record.
  • You are paying attention to your body sensations, thoughts, emotions and subsequent behaviors.
  • You know the difference between a craving and a hunger cue and how to act on each of them.
  • You know when a slip is just a slip.
  • You are practicing self-compassion.
  • You are practicing self-care.

I know it can seem like a lot to follow, but my point is that even if your travels aren’t always perfect, there is still always a path you can follow to create and maintain a healthy you.

Keep up the good work – you know you got this!

Lighten up! Learning To Embrace Positive Thoughts

Have you ever had the experience of someone casually telling you to “lighten up” when in the midst of distress? If you struggle with anxiety, this might seem like the most inane advice at a time when your insides feel like they’re about to splatter all over the floor. For as much as these words might lack the sensitivity you would hope for, I hate to break the news, but there’s also some truth in them.

Who doesn’t want to lighten up, right? I’m guessing that if you believed you could, you would have done it a long time ago.

This isn’t to say that you should expect yourself to simply drop “the act” because as we know, it’s not an act at all. The physiological sensations happening inside your body are real for sure. And you also have the ability to manage how it all plays out.

You can start by identifying some of the unhelpful thoughts that show up in the first place. As you begin to pay attention to the stories you’ve created, you can intentionally bring some curiosity to them. You can be the observer. Isn’t that interesting? you say to yourself as you notice the unhelpful thoughts arise. What stories are you bringing me today, dear brain?

Remember that our minds are really great at filling in the blanks. If we don’t understand something, then we can make hasty automatic assessments that seem to make sense, then happily go on our way. Maybe you can see where there is some danger in doing that.

Is what I’m telling myself making me feel good? How does my body feel when I buy into these thoughts? If I believe this thought, will it take me down a rabbit hole that might be really hard to get out of?

The next step is that you’ll have to buy into the possibility that you do indeed have the power to create change. The key word here is possibility. If there is possibility that things aren’t exactly as they seem, then you slowly begin to take the nails out of the door that a part of you has so nicely boarded up. It’s all about creating new neural pathways that work in our favor. And you can only begin to do this when you allow for the possibility for new pathways to exist in the first place.

So, take that wall of “truths” that you’ve done such a great job of cementing into place and begin to challenge each one. Even if you don’t believe the opposite of that truth, you can begin to create some space, another possible explanation to demonstrate that it’s really not a truth at all. And that’s huge. Trust me, this is in and of itself, a positive thought and you can rest assured that this will lead you in the right direction.

I’m not asking you to challenge the laws of physics here, I’m asking you to question the thoughts that make you feel bad because there’s another part of you that would much rather feel good. What would happen if you checked in with the part of yourself that generates anxious thoughts – what is the purpose of it doing this? You might find some irony in the response.

The point is to break the vicious cycle. And you’re gonna have to do this with intention.

It’s not about white-knuckling it through the fear. It’s about empowering yourself to see that your fears are are most likely unfounded.

Finding the Fear

My favorite definition of anxiety is fear without the presence of danger.

Anxiety can seem a little tricky sometimes when you feel the physical sensations and don’t know where they are coming from (heart beating louder, butterflies in stomach, breathing faster, etc). But if there’s no medical condition that accounts for these changes (you should always be sure to share physical symptoms with your doctor), my guess is that somewhere along the line negative thoughts are at play.

What is the story you are telling yourself? What is it that you’re afraid of?

Anxiety grows when we run from the things we tell ourselves are dangerous but actually aren’t.

Is that rustling in the leaves really a serial killer out to get you or could it be a stray cat walking by?

Is the stranger walking down the hall really making faces at you or is it possible that they are thinking about a joke someone told them earlier in the day?

Is it absolutely certain that you are going to throw up in the middle of your presentation?

Sometimes it’s about fearing the fear itself.

As you learn to cope with anxiety, you can begin to separate the part of you that senses danger – which is a good part by the way, because we do need to react quickly when faced with real danger – from the part of you that is discerning and can make an appropriate assessment of the situation.

What you need to know is that when you run from the rustling leaves or hate the stranger walking down the hall or avoid the presentation, you are confirming to your amygdala – the part of your brain that looks for danger –  that yes the danger is real and your amygdala will happily continue to amplify these things for you in the future.

In this way, anxiety is a choice because your reaction is a choice. When the discerning part of you steps up and offers reassurance to the part that is fearful – that actually there is no real danger – then the discomfort remains no more than an observation and you move on with your life until the next cue arises and you’re faced with making another assessment. Gradually, over time, this gets easier and those physical sensations begin to relax a little. Eventually you won’t need to fear the fear.

Don’t get me wrong, anxiety can get fairly complex. But when you’ve lived with anxiety long enough, it might be helpful to know that there are strategies you can use to counteract the anxiety that isn’t helpful, the anxiety that only hinders you. This is just one approach and my guess is that it’s worth a try.

Magical Thinking vs Actual Empowerment

Magical Thinking. It’s one of those things that can make you feel so special when you’re a kid. When the universe seems to revolve around you and even the moon will follow wherever you go. I like to think it’s the stuff that empowers us at a time in life when we don’t have a lot of power; when the bigger decisions are made by others and we don’t really have much say in things.

It’s interesting though isn’t it that we can grow older and cognitively understand the fallacy in this way of thinking and yet so many of us continue to do it in subtle ways. I can clearly remember how in my twenties I would expect my boyfriend at the time to know just the right thing to say or not say, to know when I was happy or upset, when I wanted his company or when to give me space, what gifts to give me, what friends to bring around and when, etc. etc. And all of this was expected with no effort on my part. He would read me. He would know simply because…I willed him to? Because that would mean he was the perfect boyfriend and we were truly meant to be? And of course if he didn’t live up to this then it meant… that he didn’t care about me? I wasn’t worthy? That the relationship was bunk? It was too much effort? Slowly over time I came to learn that it was likely the latter excuse that got me stuck. The story I seemed to tell myself was that if I actually had to put in effort to get my needs met then the relationship was somehow clearly not worthwhile, which is something that I suspect most anyone with a fulfilling, long-lasting relationship will tell you is load of garbage. As it turned out, my boyfriend couldn’t read my mind after all. But I want to give myself a break here (because that’s what self-compassion looks like 🙂 ). Where did I learn that it takes too much effort to speak up in the first place? Hmmm, I can think of a few possibilities, especially as a woman. Children should be seen and not heard. A long history of gender biases by teachers in the classroom. Mansplaining. We have to acknowledge that these messages have been around forever. Often we don’t speak up because we’ve been taught not to! In our society it takes a lot of intention to be heard. It takes effort and persistence to get your needs met, to be seen and understood. And over time I’ve learned that in the long run putting in effort is waaaayy more satisfying than sitting around wishing for things to change on their own.

It’s surprising how much energy it can take to use one’s voice once you begin to initiate change. Admitting that you even need anything in the first place can be hard, especially if you’ve had the experience of being rejected in the past. I can assure you though, that it gets easier with practice. And although it’s true that just because you ask for something, it doesn’t mean that you will get it, what I think you’ll find is that knowing yourself and letting others in to know you too, will only benefit any relationship that truly matters – be it a romantic one, a family relationship, a work relationship or a friendship. When it comes to getting your needs met, it’s about being a co-conspirator as opposed to merely tagging along for the ride. While the practice of assertive (not aggressive) communication is beyond the scope of this post, maybe the first place to start is to acknowledge that you have needs in the first place. Try journaling or making a collage and share it with someone safe, someone who matters.

There are definitely still things in this world that I continue to find magical. Birth, sunsets, shooting stars, synchronicity, the creative process. But when it comes to true power, I’ve learned that the cost of sitting around and wishing it into existence, is just too high. #NeverthelessShePersisted.

Diminishers, Minimizers and Gross Oversimplifiers

Sometimes I think it’s no wonder that so many of us get stuck in bad habits when people in the position of authority often – and perhaps unwittingly – minimize our struggles. The best example I can think of is the “Just Say No” campaign introduced by Nancy Reagan back in the 1980’s. While I can appreciate the good intention, it definitely seemed to be a gross oversimplification of a massive problem that has only grown exponentially in the 30-plus years since the movement was introduced. Just Say No became a catchphrase for a decade and it’s interesting to think that this likely did nothing to help, and may have only worsened, the stigma surrounding mental health issues. Think about it: “the number of people incarcerated for nonviolent drug offenses increased from 50,000 in 1980 to more than 400,000 by 1997.” If you can’t or don’t say no then what does this mean about you? You got duped? You’re a criminal? You deserve wherever it is you end up? Shame only keeps us stuck and it’s amazing how often we’re shamed for the things that we turn to, that get us through difficult situations. Whether it’s drugs, alcohol, sex, food (or lack of), you name it – sometimes these things can seem like the only viable relief out there. It’s not to say we don’t likely make bad decisions along the way, but when you look back it’s really not all that surprising to see how addiction set in when choices may have seemed limited. Maybe the problem is that we don’t always know how to ask for help, but regularly I hear stories of when someone did ask for help and didn’t get any, simply because the problem didn’t appear to be of significance at the time. In one way or another their story was diminished.

Addiction hits us hard in the reward centers of our brains. Of course we want to feel good, who doesn’t? Addiction is about taking the shortest path from A to B where A is pain and B is feeling better and our brains are really great about getting us there asap. The problem of course is that while this is super effective in the short term, few can anticipate the longer, harder and sometimes lonelier road it takes to get your life back on track once the cons of addiction become apparent (ie serious medical conditions, loss of relationships, loss of work, etc).

I think the danger is when we begin to minimize our own stories; we follow what was modeled for us and internalize the same message. And maybe it is because the struggle appears to be invisible. Or maybe because it feels too big for anyone to tackle on their own. When you take the time to connect with your Healthy Self, **You** know when something is a problem. And you know when it’s something bigger than others may be able to recognize at the moment. We don’t have to believe minimizers in the same way we don’t have to believe judgment – whether it comes from others or comes from within.

I’m bringing this up, not because I want to shame the diminishers, minimizers and gross oversimplifiers – as that would likely be counterproductive. My point is that throughout history we’ve seen how huge problems can go by seemingly unnoticed. And thankfully we can also look back and see that while the authority figures we hoped would address problems in a meaningful way but for whatever reason chose not to or were unable to, there was usually an unsuspecting someone (or many someones) who were more capable and who did take action. Just because no one has a quick fix, it doesn’t mean that the bigger problems can’t be solved. Bigger problems call for bigger solutions and this can mean turning to more than one person or place for help. Part of resilience is believing in yourself and not giving up no matter how long it takes – finding the resources that support you even if they don’t come in the form you may have wished.

One important thing to remember is that diminishing/minimizing/oversimplifying is only part of who we are, only a part of who anyone is. My hope is that when we begin to increase awareness of this phenomenon, we’ll also be better able to generate compassion towards self and others and use that as a way to move forward.
