04/10/2015 | eaglespi | 2 Comments Loving and appreciating your body, rather than criticizing it allows you to more fully enjoy being in the world. It also might make you less of a consumer of the ‘crap’ – both in the physical and in the messaging you take in. But don’t you deserve to enjoy the body you are in.. right now, right here? TURN OFF the media that is telling you that you are too this or that. And FORGET COMPARISONS because while you may never be walking the runway, my goodness you look fabulous walking with your head held high in the REAL WORLD!!! WALK AWAY from the steady diet of self-loathing that you have been fed and instead, PAUSE AND GIVE THANKS. Give thanks for the body you have because, believe it or not right now, it is perfect! Here we are on a Sunday and I am going to call the faithful out right now. If you are a divine child of God, then how can there be anything wrong with you? As a little Dennis the Menace type cartoon on a friend’s fridge caught my eye years ago, it was the words underneath that really pointed this out to me. It said, ‘God don’t make no junk!’ Each and every time you are criticizing yourself you are kind of saying to God… ‘hey love what you did with last night’s sunset and this morning sunrise was divine too, but you seem to have messed up with me!’ Holy moly, that might not go over well with the Almighty! So let’s shift the criticism to gratitude today and focus on what is working well in your body RIGHT NOW! Let’s focus on the positive. Let’s focus on the fact that you are beauty-full… inside and out. Even if you are having health issues there are things that are working. Focus on the positives. 1. You are breathing. And you didn’t have to figure out how. The body is doing it for most of you on its very own! 2. Your blood is circulating through with fresh energy to nourish every part of your body.. and some of us need medicines to help that, but let’s be grateful that they are working. 3. Your mind is clear when you are centred and calm. And when you are not feeling in what the Course in Miracles calls your ‘right mind’ where you only see love instead of fear, well you do something about it because being in LOVE feels more yummy. Your body is your vehicle and rather than envying what another has, how about giving yourself an energetic tuneup and ‘driving’ it in a way that is safe for it and keeps the pep that it originally had. Surely if we can do it for an old sexy convertible, we can do it for ourselves right? You see the interesting thing is what you focus on grows more forward in your awareness. (Yep that Law of Attraction works for your wellbeing, not just for your wallet!) This is the relationship that needs your focus and care today. And you are worth it!
