Following a workshop I lead on letting go of judgment and inviting more joy into your life a participant wrote a comment saying:
"THANK YOU CHRISTINE!
This was spectacular! Life- changing! I received/learned exactly what I needed in this moment. I came to learn how to let go & accept where I was at. Instead, I received an incredible gift: how to work with my body, in order to heal. After I got home, I realized that I have been trying to do things TO my body instead of with it."
How many things have you been trying to do to your body instead of with your body? Doing things to our body to try to change it is reinforcing the paradigm of control, dictatorship and separation. What if you no longer had to be (or feel) separate from your body? And what if we didn't have to control our bodies into change we can instead invite new possibilities?!
The first step is acknowledging where you are at right now. Do you feel separate from your body? Do you have a confusing relationship? Or are you tuned in and present with, in and through your body? It's not so much about the right or wrong way to be, it's rather acknowledging that different possibilities exist and you can choose what works for you. Once you've acknowledged where you are at, you can ask questions to access your awareness about how to change it. For example, what would it take to have ease with my body? What would it take to be with my body and enjoy the change that's possible? What change is available here? When you ask questions from a space of curiosity, you can receive new information, which will in turn, inspire new action. In this moment you can choose to say yes to having a new experience with your body. Contact me if you know you'd like to receive some support or guidance in this area. I'd be happy to assist you to having a wonderful ease-filled experience with your body. What if now is the time?
