Today I practiced loving my body.
Because I’ve been judging it.
Most of the time I feel really good inside my body but given some of our circumstances lately, I haven’t. In my meditation this morning, I decided I would focus my attention on loving my body, every single part of it. I put my hands lovingly on each part, offering unconditional and love and presence. I was not trying to fix it, change it or heal it. I just stayed present.
No matter what our body looks or feels like, there is something beautiful in the reflection it gives. It is the embodiment of the sacred feminine in all her forms.
If I am an expression of the great Maha Shakti, who am I to judge her??
Today I’m putting a call out to all women. Practice self care daily. Make it a part of your to do list. Make yourself a delicious healthy meal, take a bath, treat yourself to a massage or massage yourself with rose oil. Meditate with unconditional love on the parts you are judging. It is time that we as women, honor the divine mother and the sacred feminine as our bodies in the here and now.
I’ll share with you an inspiring excerpt from the great Kundalini master Yogi Bhajan to remind us all to keep loving our bodies as expressions of light and love.
“The archetype of the Divine Mother and the Sacred Feminine is as old as time, deeply imbedded into every cell of a woman’s body. As a woman, she must keep both aspects of her nature—woman and mother—in tune and alert to the world around her. As an embodiment of the Sacred Feminine, she balances her commanding nature, her sharpness, with compassion, rhythm, and grace. As an embodiment of the Divine Mother, she takes tiny seeds or ideas and nurtures them into full-fledged creations—poetry, painting, cooking, children, formulas, theorems, corporations—even nations. She makes things happen. She uses her intuition and awareness to guide her decisions, and guard and protect herself, her family, and her interests, even as she’s able to call upon her Divine Feminine to elevate and transcend those personal interests and cultivate relationships that serve everyone’s highest goo” – Yogi Bhajan
