Once a day (more if you wish) lay on the floor on a rug or quilt or yoga mat. Let the floor support you.
Let the ground support you. Let the entire earth beneath you, support you.
At least three times a day – upon rising, mid day and before going to sleep say aloud
three times or more:
May I be free from danger.
May I have mental happiness.
May I have physical happiness.
May I live with kindness and ease.
(saying these statements slowly and quietly to yourself before you eat or drink
anything at anytime is also helpful.)
After a week of using these statements, add another three repetitions with a
May you be free from danger.
May you have mental happiness.
May you have physical happiness.
May you live with kindness and ease.
Please write in and let us know your experience and if you have any questions.
For example, some people find that when they say "I" in this exercise they can be harsh, yet when they say "you" that are more generous. It takes practice to develop the ability to be kind and generous to yourself when you have an eating disorder.
Incorporating art in your eating disorder recovery work can be helpful, inspiring and deepen your healing process. It can release joy and a sense of adventure, too. *
