Do you have an adversarial relationship with your body?
Our bodies deserve love, compassion, and grace. Always, but especially in times of healing.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
How we talk to and about our bodies matters. What language do you use, and how is your tone?⠀
I invite you to tune in and listen to your internal and external exchanges you have with your body.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Often, and without even realizing it, we develop and adversarial relationship with ourselves, and our bodies.⠀⠀⠀
Injuries, Trauma, Illness, Chronic Pain⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This often happens when we endure an injury or trauma, go through an illness, or suffer from chronic pain. The results can feel very unfair. Feelings of “why can’t my body xyz?” ⠀
Do you feel like your body has “failed” you?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Are you resentful that you’re uncomfortable or have pain?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Has anger creeped into how you talk about your body’s limitations?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
All of these create limiting beliefs around how good are bodies are capable of feeling. And often this usually then blocks our body’s ability to heal and transform.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Our bodies need and deserve gratitude, forgiveness, and admiration for all we do for ourselves.⠀⠀⠀⠀
I Invite You⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
My invitation to you this week is this: set aside 5 minutes a day, preferably in the morning or evening, to simply sit with yourself. Turn your attention to those common areas of aches and pains, and feel what emotions come up. No judgement, just witness.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The first step to healing is not judgement, it’s compassionate and nonjudgemental witnessing. Which requires us to carve time and space to sit with ourselves.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I’d love to hear what comes up for you. Send me an email or set up your discovery call today.
