I want a perfect body, I want a perfect soul. ~ Radiohead
When was the last time you saw your body as perfect? We often focus on the negative. We wish our bodies were smaller, larger or smoother.
There has to be an enough from time to time. We must turn off the media that says our worth is directly proportional to the space between our thighs.
Try to center yourself on the thought that your body is indeed perfect in every moment. It has wisdom and intuition to guide you towards health and balance. Your cells know the right thing to do, just as your mind knows the right thing to do, even if it doesn’t always follow it. Your body wants to eat well and do well, offering back to you deep acceptance and gratitude for the body you live in, today.
Here’s a Meditation to Remind You that You Have the Perfect Body
This week’s meditation is simple. It’s a mantra: So Hum. I am.
Hear the gentle sound of your inhalation and exhalation. Inhale: so. Exhale: hum.
Thoughts will come up, as they often do. Just come back to your mantra, come back to your breath.
This meditation will anchor you in the realization that your body will change, your environment will alter, and yet there is a constant in life. I am is the present tense, the part of you and your body-mind that is grounded and connected.
After five to ten minutes, release the mantra, come back into the body and gently open the eyes. Enjoy the perfection of your body and if negative thoughts arise during the day, send yourself acceptance and love.
