Boadi Moore is the author of three books one of which is, Healing Your Attachment Wounds: A Guide to Healing What's Hidden in Your Attachment Style and Relationships'. We discuss her findings in the study of attachment most specifically in relation to her experience with motherhood, intimate relationships, addiction and long-term sobriety.
In this book, Boadi digs deep to break down how these wounds form, how they affect us, and how we can heal ourselves. She presents a comprehensive guide for reframing our perceptions and understanding the positive and negative attributes of our attachment style, and how we can create a roadmap toward healing.
As mammals, we are born to be attached. The way we parent, the conversations we have with our children it is so important that we understand how our own attachments early on show up.
Everything evolves in our life in relationship to our ability to attach or not to others in our lives. Boadi says she is still learning this. We talk about reparenting, by reacquainting ourselves with our authentic selves. She also shares why this is so important for sober women in their healing recovery journey.
Boadi shares her research that explains all addiction comes from abandonment and neglect that change the chemical structures in our brains that lead us to self-medicate. We talk about how we have all found ways to fill a hole or sensation in the body. In the book, Boadi shares more about how to self-soothe in a more natural way to help those of us in recovery.
We talk about what is it going to take to deal with all of this now. Boadi shares about reframing and rewriting the script of our lives by eliminating our negative thinking patterns. Creating that future self to imagine where we want to be and how to get there.Support the show
