Are You Preventing Your Best Body? Probably . . .
There are laws that govern everything from the blooming of flowers to the blooming of our selves.
Lately, I’ve been really paying attention to the mechanisms of the Universe; a natural progression from my Harvard studies in human behavior.
My work with you in particular has led me to really dig deeper into the ways women show up with food and their bodies and how that makes the difference between thriving or merely surviving in their lives.
While reflecting on two significant relationships that I released within the last year, I observed something yummy and more importantly, something useful to body-food-life freedom.
When we experience a person, thing or situation in our lives we immediately begin to attribute characteristics, values and judgments on it. Based on our experience, we believe that that is THE experience. This paradigm doesn’t leave much room for things to change. So when the experience presents itself again, we limit our ability to experience more because we’ve already imprisoned that particular experience through our characteristics, values and judgments.
This happen all of the time with our relationships (mine included). We meet someone whether romantic, platonic or professional and we define that encounter based on what they said, how they presented themselves, who they appeared to be, who we actually thought they were and so forth.
Time eventually passes and challenges present themselves in the relationship. At this point, most people throw up their hands and call it quits because they feel like the challenge means that it is not working.
However, when we operate out of this paradigm, we have an inability to re-experience the person from a new lens and allow them to show up differently because we’ve placed them in a prison. Thus it becomes easier to accept your limited view of that person, than it is to expand your awareness around the relationship itself, and accept that the challenge is really within you, not with them.
What does all of this have to do with you?
You have your own personal prisons to break out of. Your personal relationship with your body and food has had several incarnations over the years. That’s why you’re here reading this article because you want to get a hang of it. You want to figure out once and for all how to break free from your own food and body prisons.
At some point you told yourself that you ate too much, that you were too fat, that you weren’t beautiful enough, that if only you could say no, you would be skinnier, that you had no control and other non-self serving, limiting statements. It didn’t matter that you’d dieted, exercised, got on the health roller coaster and actually mastered the ride even if for a little bit. It didn’t matter because you had locked your body and your self in a prison of “I’m not enough.” So even though you have experienced success with weight loss and improved eating habits before, it never stuck! It was easier to fall into those old limited thought patterns of yourself than to look at the new you that actually made changes and succeeded.
Expanding your awareness about the truth of who you are exposes the lies of limited beliefs.
Accepting that people, including yourself do change allows you to grow infinitely while experiencing a yumminess that expansion often offers.
You can’t change people or make them into what you want. However. . .
You can change your self and the way in which you perceive your relationships; including the relationship you have with food and your body.
