Until the book, May Cause Miracles by Gabby Bernstein, I never really fully grasped the idea that I'm not my body, it just happens to be the one that I was given to walk the Earth this time around. (And whether you believe in reincarnation or not, you can still think of it in the same terms. We have this body once, but it's not who we are. Can ya dig it?)
When I was growing up, the messages I got were that I if I was fat I wasn't going to be loved, being pretty and fit is the ultimate ideal, and to do whatever it takes to stay attractive to the opposite (or same, depending on what year it is) sex.
One thing that I've discovered while doing this forty-two day practice is that I have the attention span of a fourteen day practice. So when I write my own book to help you break through your old tapes and negative self-talk, it will be quick and to the point. :-) And then I'll just sell multiple books, different volumes maybe. Workbooks. With pictures you can color in and doodle on. Because that's the kind of attention span I have. Enlightenment for the Easily Distracted. I think I just figured out my first book title. Look!!! Shiny things!!
"Stop trying to fix your body image issues and fear, and instead welcome your Inner Guide to be your guide to new perceptions." ~May Cause Miracles
I'll quickly catch you up to the readings that I've been doing. This next week is about body image. Something everyone deals with. It's not just a woman's issue. We all compare ourselves, are exposed to the media and have an idea of what the 'ideal' human body looks like. And when we don't fit that ideal, we feel like shit.
"I am willing to let go of my old limiting beliefs and let love enter in...Our fear-based minds believe that change is tough and self-reflective work is difficult." ~May Cause Miracles
It takes so much work to live in that dark cloud of fear. And it's so exhausting!! We just think it's easier because it's familiar. Start to think about your life and how you're living if you've been struggling for a while. Obviously what you're doing now isn't working, or else you'd be dancing around with rainbows shooting out of your ass.
