Deep Diving into the Seven A’s of Healing

I recently had the chance to read Gabor Maté’s When the Body Says No. Gabor Maté has decades of experience as a physicist, and in his book he looks at a range of physical aliments which stem from years of repressed emotions or bottled up anger.

Maté puts forth how he discovered some of his behavioural patterns stemmed from the needs of pleasing others at an early age and when one does not actively question patterns, we can go through our entire lives with patterns that do not serve us.

But today we’re not going to get into the manifestation of disease based on repressed emotions. We’re going to use Maté’s Seven A’s of Healing to understand how we can conduct ourselves in a way where we can avoid letting our body be taken over by negative emotions.

The Seven A’s of Healing

Dr. Gabor Maté believes that these seven steps help one to begin healing and help the body get rid of stress and chronic disease.

“Pursuing the seven A’s of healing will help us grow into emotional competence. Emotional competence is the capacity that enables us to stand in a responsible, non-victimized, and non-self-harming relationship with our environment.” ~ Gabor Maté

Emotional competence can be achieved with the help of the 7 A’s

  1. Acceptance
  2. Awareness
  3. Anger
  4. Autonomy
  5. Attachment
  6. Assertion
  7. Affirmation
