Something I chose to do early on in my discovery journey from my eating disorder was rename the word recovery. It just didn’t feel right to me. I didn’t personally resonate with the word recovery. In my world, there was a hidden meaning beneath the word recovery and my belief needed a reframe. This really changed everything for me, because it made me, for the first time in my life, realize that I’m not broken…that I don’t need to be fixed.
You are truly – at the core of it all – on a DIScovery journey.There is nothing wrong with you. You’re not broken – you don’t need fixing. But you do need awakening. And that’s what makes your discovery journey so damn special and important. A discovery journey is about using your suffering as a lily pad for you to leap into your spiritual awakening – and to use your suffering as a tool to share with others. From my eating disorder, I didn’t recover – I REDIScovered who I really am. And that process of awakening – of rediscovering – has brought me to now: in which I have a sense of peace within my body. And that’s what REDISCOVERED is all about: giving you the gift of peace within your body. Recovery actually means “healing,” but, in my experience, it was somehow twisted into being an implication that there’s something wrong with you – that you’re weak and sick as long as you’re in this place of healing. And that’s bullshit. Because you are in this gorgeous discovery journey, of healing for a Divine reason.
Your soul signed up to suffer here. Not forever, of course. But that’s part of our human experience. These shiny moments of suffering are Divinely orchestrated to help you go through your own spiritual awakening. They’re here to bring you to your knees in a state of grateful surrender, so you can wake up and shine through your suffering. And then, you can take the goods you’ve learned from your suffering and share them with others.
I received this nugget of wisdom from an early morning conversation with Archangel Jeremiel, the archangel who helps us release old behaviors and patterns that are no longer serving us (call on him at any time – he’s magical). I was in a space of really intense doubt, fear, and insecurity. I knew that I wanted to give up binge eating at night, but I just didn’t know how to stop. I felt so out of control and scared. And this is what he said to me:
This hit my heart so intensely and so deeply. “Wow,” I thought to myself. Of all the “tools” and “tips” out there, compassion certainly hadn’t crossed my mind. But I chose to start bringing that energy of compassion to every craving that I had. And it was amazing what happened: the craving weakened! Every time I chose love (compassion) over fear (shit talking myself), while the craving was still present and sometimes intense, I found so much peace in a.) asking Archangel Jeremiel to help me release the pattern and b.) giving my soul the missing ingredient that it needed.
So, give this a go. Call on Archangel Jeremiel and start cultivating that beautiful energy of compassion within you and extend it to others. Watch the mini miracles add up and watch your
recovery discovery journey become even richer.
