Self-sabotage—it’s a term we’re all familiar with. But what about those subtle behaviors we engage in without even realizing it? In today’s podcast, we delved into the depths of how we self-sabotage with Dr. Christina Fontana. As a pharmacist, five-time author, rapid transformation business coach, and holistic healer, Christina brings a wealth of knowledge and personal experience to the table.

Christina kicked off our discussion by shedding light on the often-overlooked aspects of self-sabotage. From people-pleasing to perfectionism, these behaviors can subtly seep into every aspect of our lives. They impact our progress and leave us feeling stuck. The key lies in recognizing these patterns and understanding their deeper roots. Here are my takeaways from our talk:

Takeaway 1: Uncovering the Subconscious

Christina emphasized the importance of exploring the subconscious mind and uncovering the core wounds that drive our self-sabotaging behaviors. By delving into our past experiences and conditioning, we can begin to understand why we engage in these patterns and work towards healing them. This takes sitting down and paying attention to what self-sabotaging behaviors you are already aware of. As we look at those, we tend to notice others too.

Takeaway 2: Regulating the Nervous System

Through somatic work, EFT tapping, hypnosis, and other modalities, Christina highlighted the power of regulating our nervous systems. By addressing the body’s response to stress and trauma, we can release pent-up emotions and break free from self-destructive cycles. We need to learn how to regulate our nervous system to be able to stop the behaviors themselves. After all, the reason we self-sabotage is to protect ourselves from fears we have.

Takeaway 3: Shifting Mindset and Identity

A core aspect of overcoming self-sabotage is shifting our mindset and redefining our identity. Instead of identifying with our past traumas or limiting beliefs, Christina encourages us to envision a new narrative for ourselves—one rooted in empowerment and self-worth. We no longer need to feel like we are trapped by what happened to us. We get to write a new story for ourselves!

As Christina shared her journey from homelessness and hardship to empowerment and healing, she reminded us that no matter where we are in life, there is always hope for transformation. Self-sabotage may be a familiar companion, but it doesn’t have to define our future. By going on the journey of self-discovery and healing, we can break free from how we self-sabotage and step into our fullest potential.

So, if you’ve ever found yourself wrestling with self-sabotaging behaviors or feeling trapped in cycles of negativity, know that you’re not alone. Reach out, explore new modalities, and embrace the journey of self-discovery. The path to healing begins with a single step—one that leads towards a brighter, more empowered future.
