Recall the first time you experienced not loving your body.
When you were born you didn’t care what you looked like. You were free and fun loving, and it is simply life events and modelling or decisions you made that have caused you to become who you are today both positive and negative. In thinking back over your life, when was the first moment you experienced not accepting and loving your body just the way it is? What was occurring in your life at that time? Now go ahead and write that down and what you decided about yourself and then write down what you want to think instead and focus on that. This is called reframing which is a basic concept that is often easier said than done but you can if you create some positive affirmations that assist you to heal and make new decisions about yourself.
Notice other moments this affected you and heal.
As you made decisions in the past, your life has somewhat been shaped by that pivotal moment you decided you are not a stunning and beautiful woman inside and out. You may have been influenced by other’s words, projections or magazines, media, social media or an endless list of ways women are impacted and then manifested behaviours and non-behaviours as a result of this decision you made. When you look at your life you will see how that decision you made initially when you went from an all-loving joyful child to being impacted by the world around you, you get to see that you can transform your thinking about yourself and find new ways of looking at your body.
See how your body image concerns have served you.
I know this may be difficult, but these concerns have served you in some way. I’m not saying that ill health and body image concerns are a good thing, but what I am saying that there is great power when you stop rejecting what you think about yourself and start to see that there is a blessing in every situation. When you see the blessing, it doesn’t mean anything is right or wrong, what it does do is brings you freedom and I want that for you. When you have freedom, the power is back in your hands and you aren’t shaped by the decisions you made when you were a child where you lost your body bliss and innocence and to see the blessing it stops you feeling like a victim and gives you back your power to decide, commit and act in new ways. All challenges have served you in some way and in that you can see the perfection not in being perfect but being an imperfect human being who is on a journey where all aspects of yourself are to be loved.
