How To Integrate Split Off Parts Within A Relationship

Posted by on Nov 16, 2017 in articles, Newsletters | Comments Off on How To Integrate Split Off Parts Within A Relationship

How To Integrate Split Off Parts Within A Relationship

In previous articles I discussed our shadow side and how we are attracted initially to our partners because they exhibit the parts of ourselves that we had to repress to survive childhood. In this article I will seek to explain how the biological and cultural differences between the sexes affect intimate relationships and how to integrate split off parts within a relationship. The biological and cultural differences between the sexes are often the source of conflict in relationships. Children are socialized to be “men” or “women”. If...

Identify and Reclaim Your Denied Self

Identify and Reclaim Your Denied Self

I previously discussed ways to identify and reclaim your hidden and lost self.   This article seeks to explain ways to identify and reclaim your denied self which is the third component of the Missing Self.  Because our denied self (split off parts of ourselves) are deeply embedded in our unconscious we will need to seek the co-operation of people that are known to us to help us bring them to our consciousness. We cannot reclaim those split off parts until we allow ourselves to at first acknowledge them. The Denied Self is a part of...

Identify and Reclaim Your Missing Self

Posted by on Nov 9, 2017 in articles, Newsletters | Comments Off on Identify and Reclaim Your Missing Self

Identify and Reclaim Your Missing Self

In my previous article I discussed the various components that make up the Missing Self. In our drive to wholeness we will gravitate to partners who did not have to repress the same functions that we were asked to repress; They have positive traits that we have buried as well as the negative traits that we disown. Later in the relationship we will tend to criticize those “alive” parts in our partner that are dead in ourselves. What first attracted us and momentarily liberated us, will eventually stir up what has been forbidden causing us...

Embrace Your Shadow To Reclaim Lost Parts

Embrace Your Shadow To Reclaim Lost Parts

The primary function of our caretakers (parents) is to nurture us through the various developmental stages and to meet our basic human needs. Another concurrent job our caretakers have is to socialize us so that we will be accepted into the world, including family, community and beyond which include schools, religious communities and peer groups. When we are not adequately socialized and receive repressive messages from the environment we give up parts of ourselves in order to survive . To live a life of joyful aliveness it is essential to...

Our Beliefs Predict Success or Failure

Posted by on Nov 3, 2017 in articles, Newsletters | Comments Off on Our Beliefs Predict Success or Failure

Our Beliefs Predict Success or Failure

I have mentioned in previous posts the importance of being aware of what you think and what you say to yourself. Our thoughts and beliefs are stories and impressions that we have gathered about ourselves and the world around us based on messages that we receive from the environment. When I refer to environment I mean our parents, school teachers and peers. As we develop and grow we are constantly receiving messages such as “you are too fat”, “you are ugly”, “you will never be slim, because everyone in our family is overweight, it is...

Associate With Emotions And Manage Thinking To Lose Weight

Many of us eat when there is an absence of hunger. We may eat because it is “time” to eat or in response to our emotions, such as to celebrate, when we are angry, lonely, sad, frustrated. In my last article I discussed tuning in to your body whenever you find yourself thinking about or searching for food. It is also essential to manage your thinking which can either motivate or demotivate you towards your goal. These two components associate with emotions and manage thinking to lose weight are essential if the loss is to be permanent. An...

Break The Habit Of Comfort Eating

Break The Habit Of Comfort Eating

In my recent posts I  discussed some useful steps on how to lose weight permanently; Ditching unhealthy diets, changing habits, evaluating our personal benefits of being slim and healthy and visualizing our goal so vividly that we feel as though we are already experiencing success. A further important step is to break the habit of comfort eating and to give ourselves permission to stumble as we work consistently towards lifestyle changes to achieve our goal. For many of us our “go to” place when we are worried, bored, stressed, angry,...

Shift Your Focus From Deprivation To Benefits Of Being Slim

Posted by on Oct 20, 2017 in articles, Newsletters | Comments Off on Shift Your Focus From Deprivation To Benefits Of Being Slim

Shift Your Focus From Deprivation To Benefits Of Being Slim

In my last article I recommended ditching the cycle of dieting and making lifestyle changes to successfully attain a healthy body weight. Dieting makes us feel deprived; We are constantly thinking about food; What we can eat and especially the food we are not allowed to eat. Diets are usually pretty restrictive and typically we will avoid situations where “bad” food or food that is not prescribed our diet sheet will be served; When invited to social occasions, the dieter’s first thought is “what can I eat”, “how will I cope” “I...

Ditch The Diet To Be Slim And Healthy

A high proportion of my clients seek my services to help them lose weight. In most cases a person has been battling to control their weight for many years, maybe even since their childhood. They have usually tried every diet out there and failed time and time again. This cycle of failure leaves them feeling overwhelmed, ashamed, guilty and weak. In the majority of cases they are focusing on losing their excess weight as fast as possible and if their determination is high they might stick to the regime and reach their goal weight. For others,...

Adult Survivors of Incest

Adult Survivors of Incest

Many adult survivors of incest have undergone therapy, perhaps joined support groups and even confronted the perpetrator. No matter how much healing we do it seems that we are never truly healed and the effects of what happened is so deeply embedded in us that it becomes a part of our core identity. We can, on an intellectual logical level, put judgement aside and with compassion know that the person who did this to us is a deeply wounded soul but in itself, that is not enough to set us free to be whole again. When I refer to wholeness I mean...
