The eating disorder is my teacher, my shadow, it’s what awaken me. It’s what makes me humble, more loving. I treat it with the respect and love it deserves. I never ignore it or hate it. I don’t judge it and I don’t ask where it comes from or why I’ve had it. I just see it’s ways, what it does to me, and I surrender. I get on my knees. I pray for it and about it. Prayer brings me to meditation and meditation brings me to a space where I can see and choose clearly. Ironically, the eating disorder indirectly brings me to a more loving self, and I am grateful for that.
If you don’t have time to meditate or pray, or if you don’t feel like this is going to work for you, I ask you to please give it a chance before you make any judgements. You may be surprised what emerges. It can take as little a 5 minutes of quiet reflection to begin with. It will make you feel better. Also, try a yoga class, like Jivamukti or Ashtanga. You will balance yourself and get your workout out of the way, you mind will be clear, and you will feel better afterwards.
