Love your Body

Your body is how your mind and spirit play in the world.

It’s the tool that allows us to be here now. While your spirit and mind can wander, your body always stays firmly in the present. For this reason, and many more, it’s important to show your body some love today!

Ground. Breath. Say thank you to your body for all the amazing things it does. Tell your body that you love it, appreciate it, value it. Say it until you believe it and then say it again.

Listen, I know there are ideas floating around about how our bodies are supposed to look, but I say let’s go ahead and blow that rose. Our bodies are OUR bodies. They were made for us, they are absolutely perfect for us! This doesn’t mean that you can’t want to change things about your body. I am a big fan of tattoos and varying hair styles for example. It’s fun to change things around sometimes. Changing our bodies tomorrow does not mean devaluing our bodies today.

Don’t play into the whole “if I were thinner,” “if my butt was tighter,” “if I had longer hair,” THEN I would like my body. Nope, not gonna cut it. You need to love it today and really love it!

Be here now, and notice how things shift.

Notice how your reflection looks different after telling your body every day for a week how much you love it.

Notice how others respond to you just by silently focusing on the things you absolutely adore about your body.

It’s all energy, love is a powerful force, and by focusing that love on your physical body you will be amazed at how good you feel!
