What stories would your body share if it could speak for you?
Would it tell of the gall bladder surgery when you were thirteen or of the beautiful dance performance with that gorgeous group in Las Vegas on a legendary stage? Perhaps that tooth you lost when you got hit by a snowball? Or maybe how your fingernails feel fancy when they're freshly painted?
What stories do you tell your body?
Do you stare in the mirror with love or ..... ?
Often times our body stories are a mix of our past and our feelings.
The wanting to be something that we aren't right now and not enjoying the journey or the present moment.
My body story, as with all of us, changes every day. Some days it's how your butt looks great in those jeans so you feel good or other days it's the baggy sweatshirt to hide behind. Our body stories are created while we're growing up; hearing those rude comments at school and our friends complimenting our hair.
These stories drive us to make changes in our lives, take changes or sometimes give up on something and move on.
Most importantly we have to decide if we want to continue living those body stories or change it.
Going through life holding on to the negative comment you overheard about your butt in 7th grade isn't serving you any more. Choosing to listen to your crazy relative that always puts you down is not serving you any more either. It's time to let that shizz go and create body stories out of love.
THIS is why I created Elemental Body Stories.
Our stories change and evolve, but if we hold onto the shizz that keeps dragging you down, it will never change. It's time to evolve into a better more compassionate relationship with your body. If you're resonating with this, let me know. If you're ready to hear more, consider signing up for the first session of Elemental Body Stories. We start on April 1st.
Time to let that shizz go.
