So how many of these statements are true for you, Love Your Baby, Love Your Body, Love Your life, one, two, three, or none? I would love to hear you say three, but all too often it’s not the case, but, what if it was possible, how amazing would that be! Imagine being happy and content loving your baby, loving your body and loving your life. Well, perhaps not the sleepless nights, but we know they will pass, eventually.
So free time is short, or even non-existent, so when are you going to do this inner healing lark! So here we go.
As you sit feeding your baby imagine a beautiful fountain of golden energy is washing down over you and your baby, imagine it is filling you both with loving, calming energy, soothing, relaxing and bonding. It is revitalising you and you can just surrender into the moment of you and your baby. Watch your breath, watch your baby’s breath and be at peace. There is nothing else you can do at this moment, your baby needs it’s feed, so allow this time to be your special time. Rest, relax and surrender to this precious moment of you and your baby......................
So how many feeds do you do a day? So how many times have you got to do this inner healing lark? Wow, all of a sudden there are lots of opportunities. Just being totally present and mindful of you and your baby and letting all other thoughts go can be deeply calming, relaxing and bonding. It’s just about grabbing a few moments off the treadmill of life, or stepping off the hamster wheel and giving yourself permission to enjoy this precious time. Give it a go and watch the difference.
So, your body, it has had a big challenge and done an amazing job (carried your baby) and now needs loving back to its slenderness. If you hate your body, you make it more difficult to let go of any excess weight. Hate is a negative HEAVY energy and love is a positive LIGHT energy, so which energy do you want in your body? I go for LOVE. Love and accept yourself in the present moment, because in this moment this is how you are. Your body has created a baby, how amazing is that? Savour this precious time and use affirmations to love your body. (An affirmation is a positive statement you repeat over and over again in your mind, until your subconscious mind accepts and believes it – also feels good to do).
I love and accept myself as I am
I am letting go of excess fat and gaining health and beauty
I am naturally healthy and slender
I easily maintain my ideal weight of.................... (What you want to be)
I am loving myself to slenderness
Create your own affirmations, be playful, and use any statement that feels right for you, saying it as though you already have that which you want.
So, is there anything emotionally we need to let go off too. I believe that our old suppressed emotions are held in our body, and our body wraps fat around them to protect us from them! Keep an open mind. So if that is true, to be naturally slender and happy we need to let go of all of that stuff from the past, which is weighing us down.
Imagine you are sat around a cosy, safe campfire. You become aware that this campfire is a very special campfire; it represents unconditional love, trust, truth, forgiveness and freedom. Sense the presence of a guide or mentor with you, someone you trust, feel safe with and whose wisdom you are willing to accept. (Some people like to imagine they have a guardian angel with them). As you sit at this campfire imagine you can just let go of anything that is held within you that you no longer need or want. It can be memories, feelings, unhealthy habits and beliefs. Trusting that the wise part of you knows exactly what is right and ready to let go of and asking your guide/mentor to help you. Gather it all up from inside you and putting it in to a box, taking as long as you need, checking every corner and any dark spaces, then tie a bow around the box and throw it onto that campfire. Watch as it burns and turns the negative energy back into positive energy and notice how light and free you feel!! Then fill all those emptied out spaces within you with that beautiful fountain of golden, loving energy. Then spend time imagining your life exactly how you want it to be, ask yourself the question “What is the BEST that can happen?” and let yourself get imaginative and playful and vision your future.
Doing this inner work can have a deep and profound impact on your life. Our mind doesn’t know the difference between real and imagined, how amazing is that. So let’s use our mind in a positive way. Athletes have used visualisation for many years; businesses are now starting to use it. It really is worth the effort because you are worth the effort. YOU DESERVE TO BE HAPPY, you deserve to love your baby, love your body, and love your life.
If you feel like you would like guidance and support on your inner journey, I would love to work with you. The therapies that I offer can be used for birth trauma, childhood hurts and wounds, adult traumas, grief, self development and spiritual growth or to learn amazing relaxation and energy healing techniques. I offer appointments specially tailored to meet your needs.
I look forward to our paths crossing.
