This week I attended a fabulous 3 days of learning, growing and supporting with other homeschooling parents. It gives us like minded parents/educators to continue to grow and nurture our learning to be all we are made to be for our kiddos.
The speaker/presenter was amazing. She tried to say she was a teacher but she is so much more. She radiated all the qualities of a transformation speaker.
we weren’t even there for 30 minutes and I felt enveloped with amazing love, acceptance, and joy to be there.
Then the cold water was thrown on my face. OK not literally, figuratively. This amazing leader had us move into different group circles. We got situated. I sat, I scanned the faces, just becoming familiar with my new surrounding. Then in my view, a view I would not be able to avoid because she was just to the left of the speaker, was the most stunning chiseled woman/mom. She truly could’ve just come from a photo shoot. I’m not talking a waif like thin body. I’m talking about a strong defined muscled body. A body that could be in a fitness competition. She was petite, beautiful, and EVERYTHING I struggled with, coveted for so many years because of the dismorphia.
I’m not going to lie. It was difficult to give my full attention to the speaker. It was in those first moments I had to first renounce many negative emotions. But then I experienced amazing light and peace.
I remembered she too is a child of God. And she too probably has a struggle, maybe even a struggle with something right now so I lifted her in prayer.
I also remembered I must honor and respect the dismorphic brain. It doesn’t mean to constantly live under the label but to not think it just goes away. Just because I don’t have a trigger moment for months and months doesn’t mean I shouldn’t be vigilant and caring for myself.
I had to coach my own self in a way that I recently coached someone else. I visualized: what if I did look like that? Would I be any happier than I am right now? Would I have greater peace and love of self? With amazing clarity the answer was NO.
I was able to remember this physical body is not my identity. This body is temporary.
I felt IMMORTELLE in the sense that I TRULY LOVE THE SKIN I AM IN!
I coach others to transform their lives with self care and self love. I advocate whole health wellness of mind body soul through the support of essential oils. And I too still need coaching.
We ALL need coaching. Heck every profession needs their own professional help/support . Doctors need doctors. Police need policing. Financial advisers need advising. Moms need moms. Coaches need coaches.
Transformation is about continual growth. Engaging your whole self into learning, inspiring, motivating…..being.
Do you need coaching? Do you need transforming?
Sit with this…..pray about this…..journal about this…..share/connect with me about this…..
Many blessings and hugs my dear followers……friends…..family….
