Loving Your Body
In days of old, images of nude or barely dressed women abounded, women with ample flesh and generous curves. Thinness was considered unhealthy and malnourished - women were encouraged to maintain a rosy glow, and a well-rounded form. Modern research does warn of obesity and unhealthy weight gain, but also laments the effects of anorexia and obsessive weight control.
The point seems to be to find a happy medium. As you notice your own feelings
about your body, distinguish thoughts that have been "conditioned" with those
that originate from your true values and beliefs. Learn to dialogue with your
own unique body. If you can, move to only giving your body messages that are
caring and positive. If you view your body as uniquely yours, subject only to
your personal appraisal and decisions for conditioning, feeding, grooming, and
maintaining, your body will respond. You'll find you will appreciate your
special vessel more deeply, you'll feel more physically vital and healthy, and
body decisions will be made from an empowered and deliberate frame of reference.
Banishing the Cobwebs
Summer! A time for shedding the weight of heavy clothing, for getting outside - breathing in the fresh air and subtly scented fragrances. Time for clearing one's mind of outdated fears, concerns, habitual mental patterns that no longer serve us. A great time for connecting with our "inner maiden", and reconnecting with our dreams, goals, and aspirations.
While you engage in summer activities, notice your thought processes, and how you view your life. When you participate in summer sports, picnics, social events, weddings, whatever - what kinds of self-image or childhood thoughts and memories surface? Do you revel in your daily activities, noticing a richness and beautiful continuity in your life? Or, do you regret that you're getting older, and feel like you can't enjoy or participate in life, like you used to? It's true - we all are getting "older" - experiencing the passage of time, and building a store of memories and experiences in our mental bodies.
How we perceive our lives can profoundly affect the way our life experiences unfold. If you view your life from a mind set of fear, regret, dissatisfaction, and wistful longing, you jeopardize your ability to draw enjoyment and a feeling of contentment. Past stored experiences accumulate like junk in the closet, never being processed and dispersed. We need to regularly "clear the cobwebs" of our memories and thoughts in order to maintain a youthful view and frame of mind.
Take time this summer to actively cleanse your mental faculties. Think of metaphors to use to program your mind to "let go"; relive past memories that bothered you, and see these from a "big picture" perspective, doing whatever you have to "let them go". Send them off into the ethers to be recycled as reusable energy. Don't let past problems, regrets or memories spoil your worldview for today's experiences. We all need to shed the negativity in our minds, bodies, hearts, and spirit to continue to enjoy life, even with the passage of time.
Summer Musings of the Heart
As I listened to my inner being on this Summer Day, the following message came - it must be my Higher Self speaking, speaking to my Heart: It says:
Let your emotional body rise to a higher vibration - to shed the memories of
the past; of conflict, insult, rejection, unawareness.
Trust is the key to opening the Spirit.
Too much time is spent in distrust. Let go; enjoy the flow and rhythm of life.
