How to Love Your Body

Topics: , ,

If I could share 500 words to inspire, this is the important wisdom I'd want to pass along to others...

  • Amidst all the DOING don’t bypass BEING.

    There is no rush. There is no need to try to fix anything in this moment. Take a deep breath. Take a second to feel your body. Lean into YOU.

    Fall in love with the girl you see in the mirror. She is a friend, a lover, a sister, a daughter, a woman. She is all that and more. Your body is just a container of all these special things, the things you cannot see in your reflection.

    Always remember you have a body. Remember before your body gets loud and you have to go into fixing mode. Nurture and nourish, take care of it. Take the time to send it love.

    The hunger, the layered stories inside your body, they are here all the time. They speak to you in the quiet moments, the dark moments, the fleeting moments. The stories are wisdom, your guide.

    Your body is where your lineages live, the elders you are looking for… and they speak to you when you make time for your BODY, when you’re not busy fixing, running, DOING.

    Begin where you are. Right here, right now. Have a deep delicious conversation with who you are… today. Don’t wait to BE the human or the BODY or the woman you want to be, for the one you wish you were. BE her now, and be with her, today and always.

    When you know where you are you can rewrite your story so it aligns with your values. You can live and love by your values, dance to the rhythm that holds your body, your family’s body, integrated inside your day-to-day living.

    Create a sacred space where you can unravel your stories. Take all the heaviness that isn’t serving you and let it go. Create tinctures for your pain, shame, grief, hunger, and more. Apply to your BODY and give yourself time to heal.

    Surround yourself with beauty, with all things beautiful. Surround yourself with those who lift you, who lift your spirits, those who believe in you and who mean you well.

    Rewrite your story and live the life that feels deeply aligned with who you are. Your near and dear ones, your children and your loved ones, need to know who you are. By so doing you are serving them in the most meaningful way, so that thru your stories they too may know who THEY are.

    This conversation, these words, this powerful message; your body, your inner calling, all these are held in a deep sacred space. This space integrates and transforms you as it holds you. It is telling you: you are unique, you are beautiful, you are enough. It is reminding you that your BODY is a miracle.

    Don’t wait another day. There is an urgency, a calling from deep within. Can you hear it? Your BODY is waiting – to be loved, to be accepted, to be held.

    Together let’s say: Thank you Breath; Thank you Life; THANK YOU BODY!

      Love this article. A wonderful message about true beauty, healing and sacredness.

      How we feel about our bodies, our relationship with our bodies is important. Being present with our bodies, accepting and mindfully nurturing our bodies aligns our innermost self with our outermost expression of us.
