Almost all of us have a distorted image of our body, often due to the importance our culture places on outward appearance and the onslaught of media images of airbrushed models and celebrities. On a daily basis, we talk to ourselves in ways we would never speak to another. Imagine speaking to a child the way you speak to yourself about your body. It would devastate and squelch a child. It affects you, similarly, causing stress and emotional pain in your body, which can make improving your health or losing weight even more difficult.
Think of all the intelligence, creativity, and time you spend on improving, altering, and judging your appearance. Who would you be and what could you accomplish if your valuable resources weren’t used this way? Constant emphasis on the external makes us discount the great presence and intelligence that is housed by the body. It makes us forget the magic of our internal rhythms and fail to acknowledge the beautiful bodies we have.
The body you have right now is incredible! It never misses a heartbeat; it maintains homeostasis and it miraculously mostly digests whatever you put in it. It is your instrument for expressing your creativity, intelligence, and love. By focusing on the 1% you don’t like, or wish were different, you may be ignoring the remaining 99% about your body that is beautiful, unique, and delightful.
What would your life be like if you were simply at peace with the body you have? You may wish to make your body healthier and stronger, but could you do that out of love and respect for your body instead of the opposite? Could you begin to treat yourself with kindness, to limit the negative self-talk and to reconnect with your inner wisdom? Take a minute to imagine what that would feel like. It would mean celebrating your body rather than punishing it. It would mean nourishing your body rather than depriving it. It would mean a chance to watch your body flourish when treated with care and respect.
So, speaking of making your body healthier and stronger on the inside, how is your eating? I know my food has been less than stellar lately. I can tell because my body aches more than it did when I was eating healthy for me! Also, I am more tired, and my sleep is not as good. My digestion is not up to par and I can exercise but not as strong. I know it is time for a change for me! How about you?
Let’s do something about it! I have very EXCITING news to share with you!
Everything is set for January 22, 2022! I am going to host a special group cleanse for 2 weeks. I have never presented my cleanses this way. This group will only be available to people who are serious about their health! Serious about regaining their inner strength and vitality.
