In this video, I describe how in just one minute I can become a channel of love for troubled parts of me. This helped me many times each day, early on when I was emerging from my compulsive food cycles and body-hatred. This method helped me as I begun to find a place of peace within myself, in the midst of a host of negative thoughts and emotions.
I love this concept of being a ‘channel’. It works just as well for me now as it did when I was feeling anxious, depressed, or stressed. It helps parts of me that criticise my anxiety, or try to push me out of it, or get busy trying to ‘fix’ … helps them to relax and give me space. In this space, I find I can direct awareness, attention, love, care, and gentleness to wherever inside me it is needed.
This practice is part of my creation of the Freedom Steps: Freedom Step 11, which combines Internal Family Systems with the 12 Steps and embodied awareness for gentle, complete and lasting positive change.
