What beliefs or judgments do you have about your body that keep you from being more comfortable in it?
How much shame regarding your body do you just cover up and ignore?
What if your passion for life and sense of aliveness was being blocked by shame and judgment that doesn't even belong to you?
If you're lucky to have made it past your 40's with a good amount of self-esteem and relatively unscathed by our culture's epidemic of shame and judgement you are one of the lucky few.
However, if you're like most of us you owe it to yourself to begin healing and clearing these negative messages so that you can begin to feel more empowered, and in alignment with how you want to experience life.
Our bodies are containers for positive experiences as well as negative and traumatic experiences. When we begin to disconnect from our bodies as a way to protect ourselves, we lose the ability to access an internal navigational system that is designed to guide, protect us and bring us pleasure.
Unfortunately as these issues go unaddressed they create other problems that then become a distraction from the root issue. For example, a lack of creative or sexual desire. Acting out with sex, lack of passion for life, eating disorders, obsessive compulsive behaviors (obsessing with work, cleaning shopping, etc.), dependency on dysfunctional relationships - basically anything that helps one to distract from self.
Coming home to yourself begins with the simple willingness and desire to have a different experience with your body and your life. Exploring what it is about your body that your connected with and where there is an absence of connection. Initially, you might be aware of places where you felt or learned that your desires were not okay. However with time and guidance you will begin to feel the energy of your desires wanting to have their way with you. I believe there is nothing more authentic to us than our passion, creativity and desires - and it is all right here inside us! With just the right combination of support, healing, and laughter the transformation begins.
