If I asked you what are the things you think are screwed up about you what would you say?
Would you give me a laundry list of things wrong with you? Judgeable offences that you think are real?
On the contrary...If I asked you to share 5 brilliant things about you?....would it be easy for you to come up with 5 things?
Most of us have spent our lives functioning on the notion that we need fixing. But what if that just wasn't true?
For 20 years I battled with a self-esteem issue. You wouldn't know it by looking at me,
but I thought it was obvious.....
I hated my body!! I thought I was fat, ugly, and all around horrid. I mean really!
I can see now how completely absurd that was....but in my mind...I was convinced there was something dreadfully wrong with me!!
What I've discovered over the years, thanks to the tools of Access Consciousness....There is NOTHING wrong with me!!
And there is NOTHING WRONG WITH YOU!!
If you would like to get out of the wrongness of you and stop judging yourself, your body, and your life....
Here is an excerpt from an e-book I wrote on the 10 steps to creating a better relationship with your body........Enjoy!!!
You are an amazing being. Your body is this vibrant, alive, living, breathing gift. You are only given one body in this lifetime. Your body truly desires to contribute to you. Most of us were raised thinking our body is a problem, or that it needs to be controlled. We aren’t taught that our body desires to contribute to us. We aren’t taught to believe that our body is our biggest ally and it actually desires to create your life as ease, joy, & glory. We aren’t taught our bodies want to gift us the energy of possibility.
Below are 10 keys to play with, follow, experiment with, and explore how to create a different, more ease filled relationship with you and your body. A lot of these tools come from 20 years of working with bodies, teaching classes, and exploring avenues for the body from many different forms, including my extensive studies in a masters in Somatic Psychology as well as knowledge passed down from Gary Douglas and Dain Heer, the founders of Access Consciousness. The gift that these tools have been to me have changed my life. I went from being anorexic, bulimic, and troubled with my body most of my adult life to truly loving the skin I’m in. I never thought it was possible, but thanks to the tools and questions in this book, I have changed the one thing I thought I couldn’t……. to change my body, or the way I saw my body.
I studied to get my master’s in Somatic Psychology, I went to therapy, was in and out of eating disorder clinics, tried every diet you could think of, studied Shamanism, did over 100 soul retrievals and past life regressions. I tried dancing it out, talking it out, doing reiki, hypnotism, massage, energy work, body talk, therapy, mud baths, cleanses, colonics, and although some of the above created a deeper sense of self, at the end of the day, I still felt like something was wrong with my body (and me).
When I found the tools of Access Consciousness, I didn’t think it was possible to truly LOVE my body, to no longer see it as a problem, and to no longer judge it as a wrongness. I thought it would be impossible...like no way in a million years could I change this…..
And yet, one day, the deep seeded wrongness disappeared and I started to truly LOVE my body. Is it perfect, no? Do I love sugar and ice cream? YES. Do I let myself have chocolate and bacon? Yes. And I also love greens, I love vegetables, I love tea, I love lemon water. I love to move my body and exercise and play outdoors.
I have such deep gratitude to Gary Douglas and Dain Heer for their tenacity of spirit, for their willingness to share these tools with the world, and for their patience, gratitude, and gifts they have shared with me and thousands of people all over the world.
May you enjoy the journey of a different possibility.
