Today’s topic is all about feeling safe. When we don’t feel safe, we will find coping mechanisms to try to satiate our nervous system so that our nervous system begins to feel protected. 

If you are somebody who uses food as one of your coping mechanisms, and your body is in fight, flight, or freeze you are in survival mode. All of your systems in your body go towards survival, they don’t go towards digestion and metabolism, and processing.

If you’re somebody who uses food to feel safe, but you don’t feel safe. Your body isn’t going to be able to process the food no matter how healthy you’re eating. I know when you stop spending all of your energy worrying about what to eat, what not to eat, how to lose five pounds, what’s the next thing you need to do, you will then have all of this energy and all of your resources to access your intuition to access your awareness. 

When you access your awareness, your body is no longer in survival mode. It’s in thrival mode.
