Lately I’ve been stepping into my passion about how the subconscious stories/thoughts we feed our brain affect our physical health – one might call this the land of woo woo
Today I’m going to share a story about a client who came to me with a Hashimoto’s diagnosis
She reported that she was feeling off for more than a year
That she’d sleep a full 9 hours, but wake up exhausted
She was gaining weight for no apparent reason
She got upset and irritable over the smallest things
She felt ashamed that she yelled at her husband for breathing too loudly next to her!
She was already on thyroid meds, eating an autoimmune protocol diet, and taking many supplements, yet she was still feeling lack-luster about life
We needed to go deeper
Instead of JUST focusing on the SYMPTOMS of her diagnoses (fatigue, weight gain, dry hair and skin, irritability, depression), we needed to ‘BACK IT UP’ and look at what TRIGGERED this condition and what MEDIATES the condition to progress further
Where does the deeper level of healing exist?
We dug into the stories she had about her life, body & health
She felt scared to share her thoughts and feelings
She was constantly questioning herself / not speaking her mind
All signs that the energy of her throat chakra (where your thyroid resides) had been blocked – here’s the woo woo that you’ve all been waiting for!
We did some work around her thoughts that were keeping her stuck:
people won’t like me if I don’t agree with them
people won’t take me seriously if I speak up
If I DO speak up I won’t get what I want or need… so what’s the point?
One by one, we took those thoughts apart and studied them
Where did they come from?
What were the immediate results of these thoughts?
What was future consequence of these thoughts?
We were able to replace her HEALTH-STEALING thoughts with LIFE-AFFIRMING thoughts
With new stories/beliefs/thoughts came new FEELINGS
These feelings convinced her brain that the world is SAFE
And feeling understood encouraged her to SPEAK HER MIND
And this led to more feelings of WHOLENESS because she was getting what she needed
The result? Not only did she PHYSICALLY feel better by taking more control and responsibility over her health, nutrition, exercise routine, but was also able to lower her dose of thyroid meds after her 6 month check up with her doctor
Woo Woo? You tell me!
