Include My Body, What?

Did you know your body has it’s own consciousness?

Have you been owning, controlling, choosing for, ignoring, torturing, excluding and/or ditching your body?

What if you asked your body what it wanted?  What if you created a relationship with your body that included it and allowed it to have a say in everything that is about the body?

How much would that create and how much would you have to acknowledge about you and your judgments of you?

Since including my body and asking my body…EVERYTHING has changed with my awareness and my being.

I still banter with my body, I still ignore it and do what I want

and

I get it when I do….

I tell my body that I like ice-cream. My whole life, ice-cream was the celebration or fix for anything, from emotional despair to woo hoo, you did it.  Many of my fondest childhood memories were around ice-cream, so when I reflect on those or something in my life resembles anything of the sort, I think I want ice-cream.  My body NEVER wants ice-cream and every time I over ride it, it lets me know that it’s serious.  Icecream coats the inside of my mouth, I get a puffy eyes, sleepy morning hangover and my stomach is out of sorts for two days.  Guess what, my body doesn’t like ice-cream.

 

Sometimes my body wakes me up at 5am and says, let’s run…. I say, we are not runners and go back to sleep only to wake later in the morning feeling lethargic and blah.  It’s been a long time since I committed to a running regimen and I never actually enjoyed the run itself, I did enjoy my body after.

For a really long time I was a runner from life and somewhere I decided that in order to change that, running wasn’t something I dovintage_children_running_to_school_carrying_books_postcard-r93ff1fc9b37447f694fd597ffff6591c_vgbaq_8byvr_512

When my body wakes me up a couple of days in a row and says, let’s run, I get up,  get out and at minimum, walk for a couple of hours.  Guess what, I actually love to run, walk, jog, and skip.  It’s just a point of view that stops me.

Sooooooo……..

What if you asked your body what it wanted?  What if you created a relationship with your body that included it and allowed it to have a say in everything that is about the body?

How much would that create and how much would you have to acknowledge about you and your judgments of you?
