Finding love and acceptance for your body

Finding love and acceptance for your body

Remaining open to the possibilities isn’t always easy. I know that. It’s easy to feel trapped and immovable by your circumstances. I want to assure you that change IS possible, you are able to change your situation by changing your actions in any area of your life.   How you do anything is how you do everything. This is true. If you want to lose weight, try losing resentment and finding forgiveness for another difficult situation in your life. Releasing in one area will release in others. This is true. Try changing the way you look at things.   How can you find love and acceptance for yourself and your body, regardless of shape or size? Try accepting another situation in your life. This will create a pathway for acceptance in all other areas of your life. This is an energetic truth. Sometimes you may need support. Accept support and help, and gifts from others. I know it can be a struggle. Accepting and receiving can be a challenge, but there are people out there who are willing and able to help you. In all areas of your life.   Want to love your body?   Find other ways to love yourself. Write a list of things you appreciate about yourself. Write out everything, even the tiny things or things that are easily taken for granted, like “I am grateful for my feet and legs because I can walk.” To find the beauty in your body, find beauty elsewhere. Open yourself to beauty and acceptance. Love yourself. Love others and accept love from others. It’s not easy, but it’s...
11 things you can do to feel beautiful

11 things you can do to feel beautiful

Look at your entire body in the mirror daily. You are beautiful in your own unique way, accept who and where you are. Look at yourself naked, look at yourself in your favorite dress. Do you avoid mirrors? Try to push yourself out of your comfort zone, have a look.   Accept love. Tell yourself. “I love you” on a daily basis. Even if you don’t feel lovable, allow your heart to open to yourself. Look into your own eyes in a mirror and find compassion towards yourself. Practice this even if you don’t feel it at first, eventually your heart will open.   Get your hair done. Don’t wait for anything to try that new hairstyle that you love. Find a good stylist that you resonate with and discuss whether or not you will be able to rock that style or does another style fit you better. Open yourself to new possibilities.   Have your nails done. In a nice place where you will have a quality mani and/or pedi. Whether you choose polish or no polish, having your nails done regularly will help you feel well groomed and pampered.   Choose nourishing and whole foods. Respect your body by choosing healthy and nutrient dense foods. Avoid abusing your body with “junk” foods and processed foods. Trust me, you will feel so much better body, mind and spirit.   Move your body. Dance, yoga or simple stretching, walk or running, or your favorite workout. Moving your body will help your circulation in both the physical and energetically ( your subtle body.) There are so many other benefits, try...
Beauty styling, crystal healing, and spiritual balance

Beauty styling, crystal healing, and spiritual balance

Having your hair done is not just physical care and maintenance, it is also allowing someone to enter your crown chakra, the most sacred part of your body.  It is nothing to be taken lightly. If you don’t like going into salons and having your hair done perhaps you’re with the wrong stylist. I have heard many people say that they don’t like going into salons and having their hair done because they will have to look in the mirror.   Think about it, the mirror reflects back to you who you are on the outside. If what you see doesn’t reflect who you are on the inside, then there will be a disconnect and you won’t want to see yourself. In my coaching group and private classes we do some mirror work, facing ourselves, staring ourselves down. In long distance coaching we also have assignments that include mirror work. Connecting our inner selves with our outer expression is so important. Having a stylist who is conscious of that and offers more than just a cut and blow dry is a valuable find. Having a stylist who also addresses your energy body and offers coaching in not only beauty but other areas of your life is the ultimate in spiritual self care. Hair represents many things, it holds your DNA, it holds memories and imprints of events you’ve experienced. Having is cut is a cleansing step towards allowing new things into your life. Having your hair washed can be symbolic of cleansing away the cobwebs in your mind and clearing your connection to the divine. Combining the washing and...
How to write your personal manifesto (a tip to get you started)

How to write your personal manifesto (a tip to get you started)

How to write your personal Manifesto: Your Manifesto is a declaration of who you are in the present moment. It contains your values and what you stand for. It contains your beliefs and your own truth. A Manifesto has beauty, it’s the beauty of who you are in the moment. The truth of who you are in this stage of your life. You don’t need to feel creative to learn how to write your personal Manifesto, a part of my own is that everyone is creative, in their own way. Creativity is a birthright and we all are connected to it. Some are more openly creative than others, and others need to work a bit harder to release that creative spark. This is like it is in school. Some people fly by without studying and others have to work hard to make those grades. Which one are you?   You can make a list to start out, simply list out the things that you believe and know to be true. What would you fight for? Make a list, we can all do that.   Your Manifesto can just be a list. Try it. Try taking that list and make each item a prompt for more writing. Free write and ignore that internal critic. Place each list item at the top of a blank page and write, using it as the first sentence. Either time yourself, (write for 5/10 minutes, or set a page goal, (1-3 pages.) This is optional.   I would love to see your Manifestos and if you are so inclined we can schedule a time to...
