Anxiety feels like failure, no matter how well life is going.
It feels like panic.
Throat clenched, stomach in knots. Like there is another person inside, scratching to get out of this body.
'Body Image. Our bodies are a vehicle for spiritual growth and healing.'
I knew just by the title of the next section of this book that things were going to start getting deep. What a loaded topic. If you're a woman, you've struggled with body image in one way or another.

"The more you expect miracles, the more miracles you will experience." ~May Cause Miracles
Can I close my eyes and expect the miracle that I can write with my right hand again please?? And that I'm able to type with both hands?? This left handed writing and typing is kind of bullshit if you ask me. It slows my thinking process. Bleh. It's all part of my 'journey' I suppose.

Are you aware of how unkind you can be toward yourself? Think about it for a minute. Sure, we all have moments when we talk shit to ourselves. "God, you're so stupid! Did you really just say that?"

"A miracle is simply a shift in perception...The moment we choose to let go of fear and choose love instead, a miracle happens." ~May Cause Miracles

"When we're unwilling to deal with our past or unwilling to look at our patterns, true change cannot occur." ~May Cause Miracles
