Body Beautiful Weight-loss 4: Weight & Self Empathy

by Renee Lindstrom, GCFP

 

During this weight gain I am appreciative of having the empathy skills based upon years of practicing Dr. Marshall Rosenberg’s model of Nonviolent Communication and empathetic listening of self and others.

  • Emotionally & Mentally

Gaining weight I could name my changing  emotional states as thresholds kept expanding all the while understanding what was happening in my environment to contribute to it.  I know that we are always meeting a need in dieting and weight gain.  It is never circumstances beyond our control as though some outside source made me gain weight.  We may have needs that are greater in the movement distracting us from focusing more attention to it. Discovering what this is brings attention to it and the value needs.

Body Beautiful – Weight Loss 3: Beyond Right & Wrong Thinking

by Renee Lindstrom, GCFP

 

I value the aspects of my education development that focused heavily upon experiencing and learning through a quality of being curious and exploring versus the rigidity of rules and concepts.  In Feldenkrais®  this is called , “somatic learning,” in Nonviolent Communication it is called, “connection,” and in awareness of space it is called, “exploring changes to cause and effect.”

These three pragmatic modes of education allowed me to experience my process while gaining weight and then again when loosing it.  In Feldenkrais we are taught to pay attention to reversibility!  It’s as important as to how you get somewhere as it is to return back.  Acknowledge, Acknowledge…..

Body Beautiful – Weight Loss 2: Heavy & and an empath

by Renee Lindstrom, GCFP

Somewhere along this journey I lost over 60 pounds, dropped 10 inches from around my waist and watched the bulges and pockets disappear, and now the overall body weight is disappearing.

Perceiving the silent responses in others

I shared a snippet of my weight loss thru pragmatic experience versus idealism on lost weight and found food love  page.  Now to the interactions of others.  I have not shared that I am an em-path with many.  Imagine being heavy and facing someone who has no ability to have autonomy from another’s experience and being able to perceive it clearly yet, as a professional,  not specifically addressing it!

I am referring to perceiving others mental processing experience based upon comparisons, moral judgement, criticisms, right and wrong, and shame states and their corresponding feelings.  Perceiving these mental and emotions states of  others was a paradox as an Awareness through Movement, Awareness through Communication and Awareness through Environment Practitioner that focuses upon inner changes and stimulus of cause and effect of shifting environments.  Their reactions to my weight was limited to their idealism of self-image didn’t include their own states of being, mentally, emotionally and physically.    Whether this was lacking physical, mental or emotional flexibility, and resilience or the lack of ability to understand that others have differing perspective  or a lack of listening skills and being able to hear and include others in the conversation their self-image idealism is experienced by this empath as  a prison of fear, anxiety and contempt.  Views, beliefs and emotions that would extend inside themselves as they fail in their own expectations.
