I spent so many years ignoring, hating, and abusing my body...
But I can’t do that anymore. Enough. I want to feel alive again. I want to love my body, and embrace the pleasure and the wisdom it holds. I want to cherish this body and give it the care, respect, and gratitude it deserves. I want to feel alive again, and now I know how to do it.
Before I started studying embodiment meditation, I spent a lot of my life going through the motions, feeling disconnected from my body, and wondering why I didn't feel fulfilled. I didn’t even realize how numb and cold I was inside. But my life has completely changed due to embodiment meditation.
Yesterday, I really took my time easing into my daily embodiment meditation practice and savoring it. Through the course of the meditation, I could feel a deep relaxation spreading through my body. I was feeling so held by the earth and so deliciously calm and tension-free. I felt a warm glow in my body that was unique, sustainable, and nurturing.
When the practice came to a close, I took a moment to feel what was happening in my body. It was a magical experience. I felt ripples and waves of pleasurable energy moving through my arms, my legs, my belly, my pelvis, my heart. My whole body felt at peace but so alive. It’s the kind of vitality that I rarely felt as an adult before I started practicing embodiment meditation.
It was reminiscent of the feeling of dancing and enjoying my body as a child – the pure, sweet, innocent pleasure of being alive that we rarely get to feel as adults locked in a fast-paced world.
Having this experience led me to marvel at the most beautiful gift my divine mother has given me: this magical body. The body holds so much wisdom locked inside it. It understands power, pleasure, joy, and pain on a deeper level than my mind can comprehend. There is so much life coursing through this body, and today, I am delighted to embrace it.
