[FORGIVENESS, EMOTIONS, AND LOVE]
*in this blog I also share 5 steps to moving into forgiveness or releasing any heavy emotions to find more freedom and peace within yourself that allows you to move through life in love*
Something I have had to come to realize is that forgiveness does not equal obligation.
I used to struggle to forgive anyone because I felt like if I did then I was obligated to be their friend or love them or want to spend time with them.
Because I was reluctant to forgive I would then hold a lot of negative, heavy, and limiting energy withing me.
I recently read a quote from Buddha which inspired me to share my trials with you all which is;
"Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of harming another; you end up getting burned.”
It is amazing how much we hold onto things because of the fear of letting it go or unleashing it or even truly allowing ourselves to feel a certain way.
I just recently learned the power of truly forgiving and moving on.
I have never believed in the whole 'forgive and forget' as I don't believe forgetting something is an active process but rather one that is done passively like when you accidentally forget someone's birthday.
I think it is important to forgive when you are READY not when you feel like you HAVE to.
You know when you used to be told as a kid to 'say you're sorry' and it NEVER felt good and almost seemed to create MORE resentment and negative energy between you and the other person?
Yeeah, that's why we should forgive when we are truly ready to, even with ourselves.
Imagine if you never let go of the heavy energy that was brought onto you by bad experiences or other people, your vessel for life and of life would have very little capacity to attract anything positive.
About a week ago I asked myself if I truly knew what the energy of forgiveness felt like. Yes, a week ago.
I have been forgiven by others thankfully people who truly love me unconditionally, and I have forgiven others too.
But, I was asked recently to get into the state of forgiveness and love and I struggled to do this.
Usually we can't get into this place because we fear a LOT of things revolving around the person we need to forgive like;
--they won't learn their lesson
--they will do it to more people
--they will think they can treat me like this
So we tell ourselves these stories and in a way we are subconsciously punishing them, almost like a subconscious revenge in well 'if I don't forgive them then they are trapped by this and won't do it' rather than 'if I do forgive them then I hope they see their wrongdoing and learn on their own time'
There's a massive difference in life when we approach it from love and hate.
Sometimes, hate reveals itself first. Mostly because are minds are wired to multiply negativity as a protection mechanism for us so we act strongly against it.
I recently learned some steps one can take in forgiving another person and I will be honest, a lot of it did NOT resonate with me. I have never really been one to seek physical revenge through pain or hurt like getting 'even' or 'payback'
I want to share some steps I take and also some I learned that resonate with me and which I have used before:
1. THIS IS ALWAYS THE FIRST STEP AND IN MY MIND IS THE MOST IMPORTANT...FEEL THE FEELINGS.
-do not hide from the way you feel
-do not belittle the way you feel
-do not bash yourself for feeling a certain way
-do not blame yourself
-it is okay, it is necessary
-feeling is healing
2. Take the time you need, not the time you think you should need.
-do not rush yourself to conclusions or decisions
-do not force yourself to say something or do something
-do not allow your ego or fear to run you and tell you you have had enough feeling or enough time to decide. You do what you need to do when you are ready.
3. Find Support in a way which feels best to you. I will give some examples:
-faith (you don't need to have religion or beliefs or anything if this doesn't feel right to you--for me I turn to my core beliefs, universal laws, and the spiritual practices like meditation or earthing)
-therapist (I loved having a therapist)
4. Learn the lesson. Why did you go through this? What is there to learn from it?
-do what you need to do to seek the answers you need from this. it all happens for a reason right? find out why you needed to go through this.
-lifting (this is particularly good for scientific reasons of release, I can expand on this is in another blog)
There are a lot of ways in which we can seek the freedom and the release we need from negative emotions and energy. This is not just for forgiveness but for all things which may feel heavy or unbearable at times.
The key is to never FORCE or PUSH yourself into certain feelings or emotions but to rather FEEL yourself into and through them.
In forgiveness there is love and this love is self-love.
I am opening up 5 spots to work with me 1:1 to develop more self love and heal your relationship with yourself. This is something I offer year round but to only 5 people at a time as it is intensive work.
You and me, 1:1 going all in, every week, and even daily to discover what is holding you back, what needs to be released, and what needs to occur for you to have a better relationship with yourself.
How it works:
-One phone call per week (recorded for your benefit to save and use in the future and to replay and learn more)
-Daily access to me 24/7 to ask me anything, lean on me for support, share your wins, or seek further counsel.
-Month to month we go until there is a result or until you feel ready to continue on your own <3 I am committed to the result
-Access to my VIP Membership site
-Access to my Facebook Support Group
Everything which occurs outside of us is a direct reflection of what is happening within ourselves.
Take some time to ask yourself, if I were to truly allow myself to love myself unconditionally and fully, how would all areas of my life be different.?
Message me now if you are interested in 1 of the 5 spots.
This is for you if you are serious and committed to growing the relationship you have with yourself.
Looking forward to working with you.
P.S. did you find this post helpful?
What’s more important, diet or exercise?
Before I even get to what could be seen as controversial, I want to make something very clear; I DO NOT PROMOTE OR SUGGEST ONLY FOCUSING ON ONE, RATHER I BELIEVE IN FOCUSING ON THE WHOLE ESSENCE OF YOUR BEING AND THE JOURNEY AS ONE RATHER THAN AS SEPARATE PARTS.
Ahh okay now that that is off my chest, diet or exercise?
Let’s cut to the chase.
Consider this, if you are fueling your body with foods full of vitamins, minerals, water, and the proper macronutrients your body is going to be happy.
If you fuel your body with junk and you exercise, your body still won’t be all that happy. The food you eat is actually going through your whole system on a cellular level.
Our cells form our tissues which form our muscles and our organs. Our insides are a pretty big deal right? 😉
While exercise can help with MANY things biologically, it is not AS effective as nutrition.
What we eat can reduce inflammation, lower our risk of diseases, improve our gut function, help us to lose, gain, or maintain our current physique, fight off illnesses, provide us with energy, increase our oxygen levels, keep our bones strong and getting stronger, help our muscles to stay fueled, help us fall asleep, or even wake us up.
THE LIST IS NEVER-ENDING.
Food is literally what is fueling our body. Without food we couldn’t actually function at an optimal level.
Food is our MEDICINE.
Food is our CURE.
Food is our PROACTIVE CHOICE.
Food is our FUEL.
Food is our TREATMENT.
Food really can save our lives.
Of course, I would never recommend only relying on food to solve your problems.
As mentioned before, it is about the WHOLE journey.
So, neglecting a workout won’t help you much either. Imagine living a life with the proper foods in your diet and exercises which complement the decisions you make for your fuel.
It is really amazing what can happen when we choose to love ourselves enough to take care of our body in a way which works both internally and externally in our favor.
HERE’S THE THING THOUGH. IF YOU ARE GOING TO TAKE ANYTHING AWAY FROM THIS, LET IT BE THIS;
I would drop dead before I EVER argued that diet and or exercise is ‘enough’.
You know how many times I have cringed hearing people say “Oh just eat less and move more”
I’M SORRY WHAT?!!
You mean to tell me that ALLLLL I have to do is put less of whatever I want on my plate and just move my body a bit more.
Yeah I don’t think so! If that was the solution there wouldn’t be a single soul striving for more. WHY?
Because it goes deeper than that, YOU go deeper than that.
I truly believe that your journey to developing freedom within your skin and your body, feeling empowered everyday, loving the way you look and feel, making decisions with ease and love, being rooted in your deep sense of knowing and understanding that your body is already telling you what is best for it and your soul, COMES FROM BUILDING MORE THAN JUST A BODY!!
When we emphasize the importance of self-love, confidence, mindset, wellness, behavior, and long term success strategies alongside the proper training and nutrition program we no longer have to worry about this decision or that decision and we can actually move through life freely and effortlessly because instead of feeling tied down to some diet plan or routine you can now be free and empowered knowing that you are ALREADY capable of giving yourself what you need and therefore you DO.
Best piece of advice I can give you is to focus on developing your self-love. With self-love comes every action, decision, thought, and choice being rooted in love.
So even if you make a mistake, fail, or feel lost, you can still be rooted in love.
When your being is surrounded in the light of love you are able to radiate this light out into the world and thus the more love you can receive.
So trust me when I say, it is not just about diet and exercise 😉
Everything amazing in my life has been led by a feeling, discovered through feeling, or decided upon through feeling.
Everything less than amazing has been driven by thought, ego, or negativity.
I remember as a volleyball coach we used to tell the girls 'when you think, you stink'.
In ju jitsu I am told to let go of thought because my body already knows what to do.
When I eat I listen to my body's needs and trust that she knows what is going to sustain me.
In my business I am driven by high emotions and feelings. When it feels good I follow it. When it doesn't I drop it. So when I feel like working with someone I do. When I feel like hiring someone I do. When I feel like changing something I change it. Simple.
When I speak to my clients I don't think rapidly and crazy like. I trust that I already know what they need. I feel into their emotions and tap into the energy of which they are SEEKING to have then I provide this.
When I met Robbie it just felt right. And it still does. And I don't think it will ever feeeel wrong.
When I started lifting weights it felt proper that this become my passion.
When I prepped for my first show. It felt right.
When I wanted to do another show and stopped my show prep it was because it didn't feel right.
Now, I'm prepping because it feels right. It has been the MOST energized and excited I've been in a long time. I feel rejuvenated actually.
Every feeling I get leads to the action necessary, the positive choice, the right step.
It all just starts falling into place.
Because feeling is the gut reacting.
Feeling is your souls choice.
Feeling is first nature.
When we feel we have been conditioned to question it.
As if we are 'not allowed to' just because it feels right.
If I had listened to all the times people told me it wasn't enough to go off a feeling I guarantee I'd be no where near where I am now.
It's almost as though we are being conditioned to think that 'feeling like' something is not allowed. And actually should be ridiculed.
God forbid you listen to your soul right? Ridiculous... ;)
Imagine a world where EVERYONE trusted their intuition, their soul, their gut.
And then even more so, ACTED ON IT!
Wow. That would be beautiful.
I've been really expanding lately within myself and because of it I have been attracting other soul creators, followers, leaders, and seekers.
And let me just say, they are frikkin AMAZING.
Now imagine a world of the...
When you say or hear "I wish there were more people like you in the world" I want you to know IT IS POSSIBLE.
In fact, there IS a world of us out there.
Some of us are consistently shattering the ceiling of the demands placed on our soul.
And others of us,
Well, unfortunately some of the world is still stuck, lost, trapped, confined.
Some are worse than others.
But no one is actually broken or dead or useless.
Our differences in imbalances of the soul message we have for the world is what true uniqueness looks like.
Being unique is a part of you. Just by being YOU. No one else can do that.
When we can embrace the different journeys of all our souls and come together the world produces magic. If you want to call it 'magic'.
You are not meant to live this life outside of yourself.
You are meant to literally live through yourself.
Because you are a soul.
A badass soul might I add.
And you have a responsibility on this earth to release your soul to the world daily. HOWEVER THAT LOOKS FOR YOU.
In order to do that though, you have to take care of the home in which your soul resides.
When you can do these things you can give the most valuable gift EVER to the world.
Your love. Your soul. Your energy.
Because the more love you have within, then the more love you can radiate out into the world and thus the more love you can receive.
I am thinking about running a 7 day Intuitive Living Course to truly help others know and trust the voice inside of them which allows them to live their most empowered, free, and healthy lifestyle.
I wanted to run this course for $97 but I'm thinking about doing it for free..
If you're committed to taking care of your soul, loving yourself more deeply, and trusting your intuition to live from your most free and empowered state of being then this is for you.
Comment below saying 'I TRUST THE POWER AND LOVE IN MY SOUL'
If I get enough people involved then I will run the course for free!
It's time we all commit to loving ourselves and our souls more deeply and make it clear to the universe how serious you are.
Are you in?
Calling women into my programs by belittling their bodies has never and will never feel good to me. In fact, it would go against everything I believe.
Regardless of 'business and marketing strategy' I know, trust, and believe that the women I am meant to work with understand the true benefits of Building More than Just a Body by emphasizing the importance of self-love, confidence, mindset, behavior change modification planning, and wellness development all coming together with the proper training and nutrition program.
I know that there are women out there who can see and already KNOW that they are deeper than surface level.
We don't need to be body shamed, hated on for our size, or looked at differently because we aren't at our peak state.
In all honesty, the body is a byproduct to all the in depth work I do with the people who work with me.
The body comes with ease and genuine flow as we focus on the inner work and identity creation that comes with developing a body that serves you and makes you feel amazing.
I will never support companies, coaches, or programs built on the backs of making women feel like they are less than they truly are.
We are allowed to love our bodies.
We are allowed to feel amazing in them.
We are allowed to look after them.
We are allowed to desire change for them.
We are allowed to fuel them properly.
We are allowed to push them past their limits.
We should NEVER allow ourselves to hate on our bodies.
Last time I checked, that never got anyone results; at least not ones that lasted or felt fulfilling.
Hating on yourself can look differently for everyone, here are some examples:
-Speaking Down to Yourself
-Judging, Poking, Prodding, and Squeezing at yourself for not looking a particular way.
-Neglecting to condition your body's muscles
-Pushing feelings away and not giving yourself permission to feel and heal because you 'have to be strong so you don't have time for this'
-Fueling toxic relationships with people, food, and yourself.
-Forcing yourself to work through pain, fatigue, or low energy.
-Deciding not to listen to your body when she speaks to you.
-Ignoring the requests of your soul to truly live your most empowered, free, healthy, and fulfilling life.
these are just a few examples. Maybe some of these felt familiar to you, I know I can relate, I used to live in a self-loathing relationship with my mind and my body and my soul.
While we can and should invest in bettering our health, fitness, and bodies. We must approach it from positive energies and intentions which serve us.
When we come from a place of hatred we only generate surface level results or no results at all in most cases, and they sure as hell don't last.
There are people, companies, and industries which will make you feel like you HAVE to change yourself now. And call you out for not fitting in your dress, being able to squeeze fat on your tummy, and having thighs that rub together or have cellulite coating each surface area of your body.
These are the same companies, industry, and people (I say people because I don't qualify them as 'experts', 'coaches', 'specialists', 'mentors' or whatever they like to sell themselves to you as with their negatively backed ad campaigns) who put you on programs that only generate results for the SHORT term.
Because the problem is not your body, or your fat, or your muscles or lack there of, or your skin, or your hair, or your face, or your level of conditioning, or your performance, or your clothing not fitting, or you name it.
The problem lies deeper than that.
The problem is rooted in things like:
-Negative, non-serving mindset
-Past Experiences (even all the way back to your childhood and usually all the way back there)
-Unhealthy relationships with people, food, and yourself stemming from thoughts, beliefs, experiences, and mindset.
-Lack of fulfillment or feeling of fulfillment (even if it is unconsciously known, it can still be there and normally is)
-Desire for things which do not come and are then sought in our food, choices, etc.
-Current struggles, trials, energy, and imbalances
-Unhealed and neglected wounds
-And the list goes on...
I am sharing this with you because I am on a mission to help women start building more than just a body and truly fulfill and live out their most empowered life.
This is about taking an approach that generated physical results through inner work coming together with outward implementation and inspired action.
Your healthiest self is not only created by working on your body. Your healthiest self comes down to so much more than that. Because YOU are so much more than that.
If this resonated with you, struck a chord, or spoke to you I want to take this opportunity to invite you to start Building More than Just a Body with me.
I am hosting a retreat in nearly 4 months where we are going deep into what it takes to build more than just a body and we will be touching on, highlighting, and going further into the root of exactly this.
This is not just a retreat, it is an opportunity to change your environment with a 5 star experience and VIP treatment.
This is about coming together with 5 other women during your journey and supporting one another along the way.
You won't just be getting the retreat.
There is bonus coaching involved.
After the retreat you will be held accountable, guided, coached, and mentored by me to continue your journey through and through.
There are a few different packages available to you.
I invite you to allow yourself to go all in and truly commit to yourself and a life changing experience.
If you are interested in hearing more about the retreat and your options shoot me a message for more information and to apply or just click the link in the comments below.
The next 2 women to enroll will receive $200 off the package of their choice and a bonus gift which will be revealed upon purchase and discussion so that it is extra special to YOU.
There are 5 spots left for the retreat. I know that if you are meant to be there, you will be there. I know that if you feel called to come, you will come. I trust that the right people have read this and will make themselves a priority for this opportunity. I also know there are women who read this and felt called to work with me and will reach out to me to do exactly that, however it may look for them.
If you know that's you, I am really excited to be working with you and celebrate a new lifestyle which fulfills you on levels past the surface and truly embraces you at your core through love, embrace, strength, peace, and empowerment.

"I am so happy and grateful for my transformation and happy for hers too"
This came out of me while journaling in gratitude this morning.
I was really connecting to a feeling and just writing as gratitude flowed through me and I almost crossed this out because I thought, "who is this 'her'?"
Then I realized. That 'her' is my soul.
I am happy and grateful that my soul has transformed with me.
That she's shown herself.
That she's opened up.
That she's appeared in the world and is standing up for herself and her beliefs.
That she's healthier.
That she's more free.
That she's happier.
The crazy thing?
I didn't consciously think to write this down.
I consciously thought to scratch it out as a mistake.
I then realized who really wrote this...
My soul took control and decided that she belongs in every aspect of my life.
I thought she had.
She thought differently.
So she showed up and she made it known that she deserves to be recognized and acknowledged.
I fought the idea thinking, well technically she is me. But this was just to cover up the truth that sometimes my soul and I have space between us that's filled with a bunch of emotion either serving or limiting.
And this was her way of letting me know, "I am here. I transformed with you. Be grateful for me because I am grateful for you."
So it hit me.
When I would and do feel intertwined with my soul it is natural.
When I am only acting from my headspace I do not feel 'one' with her but rather like we are just holding hands on the journey.
It's not only about knowing my soul is apart of me and choosing to sometimes showcase her or listen to her or become her.
It's about truly recognizing that she and I are the same.
She's been here.
And I am grateful that she has transformed with me. Even when I neglected her consciously I took the time to connect with her when I felt that I was neglecting her.
This was a beautiful reminder to not just 'connect' with her. But to become her. And truly embody her. Because she is me at the deepest rooted level there is.
I am grateful she naturally came out of me today without me even consciously realizing immediately what happened until she stopped me from crossing it out and I took a deep breath and saw it for what it really was and felt her strong presence actually flow out of me, naturally.
This would never happen if I didn't recognize her power and love and abilities and strength and spirt.
Because I have. She has too.
We are transformed together.
We are no longer just connected every now and then.
We now seek oneness over connectivity. Because oneness allows us to show up together consciously and unconsciously;naturally.
❤ Your Soul and she will ❤ you back more deeply than you ever knew possible.
Building More Than Just a Body
I chose self love when...
--I gave up the things which no longer lit me up inside.
--I stopped after one suicide attempt.
--I demanded I go to therapy.
--I snuck out of a verbally abusive relationship.
--I stopped hanging out with people who didn't care even half as much about me as I did them.
--I sat in my car alone at lunch in high school to protect myself from negative energy and feelings I was left with.
--I stopped putting up with men cheating on me or lying to me.
--I looked in the mirror and chose to start taking care of my body.
--I turned down party invites which made me feel hurt and uncomfortable
--I stopped allowing people to guilt trip me into doing things for them or 'because they needed me' when in reality they just didn't feel comfortable on their own and would ignore or neglect me when they felt comfortable.
--I stopped putting up with an environment full of people who didn't 'get' me.
--I started my health and fitness journey and got a job as a coach to pay for my gym membership
--I started sleeping more and adjusted my schedule after almost crashing my car from nearly nodding off to sleep
--I started cooking healthy meals and pushing my body past its limits.
--I stopped allowing people to make me feel obligated and started allowing myself to trust what I truly felt and gave myself the power to say no.
--I allowed myself to realize I had an unhealthy relationship with food even when I was at my most fit physique.
--I allowed myself to heal.
--I invested over $30k in my personal development in one year.
--I wanted to rest and sleep instead of going to the gym because I knew I'd be too out of it to even benefit.
--I listened and trusted my heart and quit a sport I played for my whole life and even signed to play in college so I could pursue what truly made me happiest.
--I continuously follow what makes me happiest, not what is 'right' to others.
--I allowed myself to love and be loved completely
--I focused on my bodies health and function over its look and shape.
--I could have given everything up and gone the 'easy' way which in my mind would have been so much harder.
I don't need to continuously go on and share EVERY time I chose self love. Because, the truth is, I choose self love everyday, in every moment.
No, it is not always easy.
And yes, I do sometimes fail.
No, it does not require painful work.
Yes, it does require deep healing, releasing, liberation and creation.
No, it doesn't have to wait until x,y,or z happens.
Yes, you can love yourself RIGHT NOW.
It comes down to a choice. A decision. An identity shift that you are no longer a person who loathes, rather you are a person who loves.
I am hosting a Self-Love Creation and Self-Loathe Liberation workshop.
We will be diving deep into:
---Discovering More ways to Love Yourself
---The Difference Between Affirmations and Actions and how to find a Healthy Balance between the two which Supports your growth.
---Digging Deep into WHY it's important to love yourself more for YOU not my why, or so and so's why, YOUR why.
---Daily Mindset Ritual to Align with your Souls inner beauty and warmth while setting you up for a successful day.
---Specific Self-Love exercises will be walked through during this live workshop
There will also be time for questions of course!
This will be fun, exciting, deep, and potentially quite revealing for yourself.
I am so excited for the people who have already enrolled and locked in their spot.
This workshop would normally run for $97 but I am offering it for $20 for the next 6 days because I want to empower as many people to join as possible so we can empower others since 10% of every registration will be donated to the YMCA-Miller Family and Big Brothers Big Sisters of Ventura County
If you know this is something you could really use right now, why hold back any longer?
It is no coincidence this opportunity was placed in front of you today...
You can join here: https://celeste-rainsturk.clickfunnels.com/self-love-creation-and-self-loathe-liberation-workshop-registration
FYI: This is a LIVE workshop which will be held in on Sunday, February 5th at 2 pm PST but will be designed so you can access it anytime be it through a replay a few hours later or 5 years from now when you want to revisit it and dive deep again.
When you feel called to do something.
Tap into the best version of yourself.
Tap into the most abundant version of your life.
Tap into your soul.
And ask yourself if the decision is in alignment with that identity.
If it is. Do it.
Sometimes you need time to sort through the limiting beliefs in your head and truly reconnect with your soul deeply and recognize that you deserve to give yourself permission to have what you want and to grow.
So give it to yourself. Fuel your souls desires.
I made a live video on this and shared a bit about what was going through my head.
Honestly, recognizing that you must release in order to receive is a HUGE part of the journey.
In order to bring anything into your life you must create space for it.
Things must be released.
Things must shift.
We must give ourselves room to grow and expand and make things happen.
When the pull is so strong and the energy is undeniable you must allow yourself to feel it and flow with it.
Loving yourself can take strength sometimes.
But when you do, everything is ease and flow when you love yourself.
So love yourself.
I'm excited to host a live workshop the first weekend of February on Self-Love creation and Self-Loathe liberation.
I'm donating 10% of each registration to two very special organizations.
We are diving deep into all things self love.
Releasing all things self loathe.
You. Yourself. And love. From within. Because all we truly need is love. Because love is rooted in everything when you allow it to be.

19. I have the power to release anything in my life which does not serve me.
20. I love change, challenges, and new beginnings because I know they are taking me where I need to be.
21. I love myself and I radiate this love into the world while I receive even more love with ease.
Some of these affirmations may have felt really good and hit home for you. I encourage you to truly dive deep into them, utilize them, and evaluate why they hit you so strongly--something painful or confusing may come up when you evaluate these things, trust it and go deep into it, allow yourself to feel it so you can then release it.
All affirmations must be formed from within. Affirmations should be solid beliefs you have about yourself or would like to have about yourself.
You do not need to achieve something to have a belief. But to achieve anything you must form beliefs which serve you in getting there.
When it comes to forming empowering affirmations you must first recognize what beliefs you have which don't serve you and then release them by recognizing where they came from, what you can learn from them, and then what you need to believe differently to move forward in your journey.
When you consider the next level version of yourself, incorporate these powerful declarations into your affirmations. No limitations placed on your big vision, you are allowed to want what you want, give yourself permission to.
Keep in mind, your affirmations should not replace action, they should fuel action.
Choose love when hate comes to mind. Choose love when you make decisions. Choose love when you begin and end anything in your life.
All of your affirmations must be rooted in love and rooted in your own heart and your own desires.
No one can tell you what to believe about yourself, your life, or your success except for you.
What do you need to believe in order to fuel your journey from a positive space of self-love?

My body loves me because she speaks to me in ways that let's me know if something is fulfilling me or not.
My body loves me because she wants nothing but the best for me.
My body intuitively knows what I need to be my healthiest, happiest, most peaceful and fulfilled self.
Even if I don't listen, my body still gives me signs.
Even if I don't act, my body still responds.
Even if I don't do her a service she still services me.
Even if I don't take action to fight off things which harm me, she does.
Even if I hurt her, she heals me.
My body is my souls safest home.
My body always loves me regardless of the way I love her...
...But my body loves me best when I love her back.
When I listen.
When I trust.
When I act.
When I understand.
When I care.
When I treat.
When I heal.
When I move.
When I fuel.
When I connect.
My body and my soul work together intuitively. Only resistance towards come together can keep my body and soul apart. And resistance only lasts when I do not open myself up to love her back.
I love my body for loving me unconditionally.
I love my body for doing everything she can to keep me alive and well.
I love my body for protecting my soul and creating a safe space for her to flourish and radiate.
My body expresses love to me everyday by working with what I give her to create something even more whole and even more magical.
I express love to my body by trusting her intuition, listening to her, and then actioning that by fueling her with what she needs to function at her highest level.
The love my body gives me is only as great as the love I give back to her.
I fell in love with a girl...
I recall the moment so vividly.
She was Crying.
She was Hating.
She was Loathing.
I sat quietly behind her as she stared at herself in the mirror.
I felt like I was running through her veins.
I hated the way she did this.
I hated seeing her cry.
I hated that I could feel her confusion intertwined with her loathe and every bone feeling like a cracking whip doing everything it can to weaken her, to control her, to make her relinquish her power.
I hated her for all of the times she focused on it.
All the times she gave it power.
All the times she spoke to it and fueled the fire.
Sometimes I even hated her for the things which weren't actually part of her core.
But I couldn't help it.
Then, There was a moment of realization.
Despite the coolness in her blood there was warmth in her heart.
Despite the hate in her mind there was love in her soul.
Despite the shallowness of her thoughts there was depth to her beliefs.
Despite the words she spoke,
"I hate this.."
"I can't stand the way this feels..."
"I look horrible..."
"How did this happen...?"
She would grab at herself, tug at parts of her skin, trip over the crevices of her mind with thoughts so dark I couldn't bare to listen to them any longer.
It was as if she had been given a voice in her head that wasn't hers.
But I knew her conscience enough to know...this is not her.
And I fell in love because in the midst of negative emotions and pain...
I saw a girl who fights for herself.
I saw a girl who doesn't settle.
I saw a girl who takes action.
I saw a girl who creates.
I saw a girl who has more motive and drive than a belly can take.
I saw a girl who truly believed she deserved better.
I saw a girl who cared so much that she would give everything and invest everything she had to contribute more to the world, to unleash her message, to pursue her purpose.
I saw a girl who listens to herself and follows what she feels called to do.
I saw a girl who makes things happen for herself.
And I fell in love with her.
I fell in love with the way she took matters into her own hands and did everything she could to turn her world right side up, smile fully, and be free of her demons.
I fell in love with her and I wasn't going to let her down.
I support her. I uplift her. I invest in her. I express my love to her. I share her with the world.
I affirm affirmations with actions of sincerity and genuine love.
I help her to make decisions that serve her.
I help her to get started, keep going, and never stop.
I help her to fuel her body with healthy and nutritious foods.
I helped her to shed off the fat that she so loved to tug at.
I helped her become a better athlete.
In summary, I helped her to take care of herself.
I helped her to start Building More Than Just a Body
And I help her to grow and flourish in abundance everyday.
I mean, It was so easy to fall in love with this girl when I realized she wanted nothing but positive change in a whirlwind full of negative thoughts, emotions, and actions.
I fell in love with her because she is me.
And she deserves to love herself.
So she did. I did.
So she does. I do.
And so she always will. I always will.
