And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful that the risk it took to blossom. ~ Anais Nin
Welcome, welcome! In case the hot pink headline at the top didn’t give it away, I’m Christie Inge.That’s me, right there —->
I’m a heart navigator. A self-love instigator. An intuitive mentor. A true cravings decoder. An inherent worth warrior.
I teach women who struggle with yo-yo dieting, emotional eating, and poor body image how to understand and honor their true cravings. As a result, the women that I work with experience peace with food, their body, and, ultimately, themselves.
And by now, you are probably wondering…
What is a true craving?
Our true cravings are the needs and desires that are driving our everyday thoughts, feelings, and actions. Every action – including overeating, dieting, and beating yourself up – is an *attempt* to meet a universal need or desire. And when we satisfy the true craving, we feel the way we want to feel and live the life we deserve.
Let’s say that you want to go on a diet to lose weight. You are pretty sure that when you do, you will finally be able to really love your body. Or maybe that your spouse will be attracted to you again. Or you be able to do all those things you really want to do like hike, or swim, or start a business. On the outside, you just want to lose the damn weight already. But on the inside, your true craving is love, acceptance, validation.
So, you scourer the internet for the latest and greatest diet, or maybe you go back to an old standby. You know – the one that “works” when you work it. And it goes well for a minute. But suddenly, you find yourself rebelling – doing the ole’ fuck-it eating routine – wondering why you keep sabotaging yourself. On the outside, it’s just one more diet that you’ve failed. But on the inside what you truly crave is the freedom to eat what nourishes you.
Or maybe you get home after a long day. You are exhausted. It has been one of those kinds of days…again. But the laundry is piled on the floor, the kids are screaming, and you’ve got just another hour or so on that work project to finish. So, you grab the chocolate as you shove laundry in the washer and a bottle in the baby’s mouth. On the outside, you are just trying to get through the day. But on the inside, you truly crave peace, quiet, calm, and rest.
These are just some of the examples of the true cravings of the women that I work with. And what I want you to know is that whatever it is you truly crave is already within in. You have access to love, acceptance, validation, freedom, nourishment, peace, and calm right now. Your job is plugging into it.
My job is to teach you how to do that.
If you are ready to make that happen, like, for real this time, I’d invite you to stick around.
