7 Positive Body-Image Affirmations To Feel Like A Diva

7 Positive Body-Image Affirmations To Feel Like A Diva

mountain-pose-815291_1280Since 2014, low body-image is out. Self-acceptance is in! And if you are going to embrace being a natural Diva, self-acceptance is an essential ingredient. Every women is a diva, simply by her birthright. Think of it that way. You start at marvellous and work your way up from there, without arrogance or disdain. If you don’t feel that you are quite there yet, here are 7 affirmations for a positive body-image. Your body-image impacts on every single area of your life, so make it the best version you can. Remember, affirmations are not about forcing yourself to believe something that you don’t feel. That’s silly and a waste of your time and intelligence. Change begins with the first step and being willing. Ultimately, you are the only one who can change the relationship you have with your body!

1. I accept and love my body exactly as it is
Ah, if it were only so easy you may be thinking. Begin with baby steps. It’s taken centuries of social and cultural conditioning to lead you here. So be gently and kind and patient with yourself. Most of all though, be honest with yourself. Are you at least WILLING to begin to accept and love your body, as it is, here and now? When you can at least be willing, you allow something different a chance to show up. You release the rigid judgment you have on your current body-image.

2. I am grateful for my body
It’s no secret, that gratitude or appreciation, engenders a beauty of its own that transcends the mere physical. When you shower your body with gratitude rather than judgment, it will respond favourably in kind and very quickly. Start by acknowledging something that your body does for you everyday. For instance, the fact that your body knows how to breath for you, is a great and wonderful skill, that literally keeps you alive. Imagine if you had to remember to breathe every breath of each day. How exhausting would that be? Shift into a mindset of being grateful for everything your body does for you.

3. I claim and embrace my Diva Body
It’s very simple. You have to claim what you want. Especially if you don’t feel that you have it. If you are going around grouching about how awful you look, this is how you show up. This is not how a Diva behaves, is it? The one thing noticeable about a Diva is her confidence. And that comes from accepting all of herself, as she is, and being proud. Claim your Diva Body today.

4. I am the authority of my body
To feel good about yourself in the body you have, requires accountability. As long as you allow yourself to be influenced by external factors like the media, beauty industry and yes sadly other women’s opinions, when it comes to your body, you will most likely find yourself feeling terrible about your body. There is only one person who has the body you have and that is you. Celebrate it and even flaunt it. Why wouldn’t you? You possess one-of-a-kind!

5. I nurture a positive body-image
You body is like a car. No disrepect. What you put in it and how you treat it, is what you will get out. Your body reflects the quality of the nurturing you give it. Nurturing is not just about the food you eat and the exercise programme you follow. It is also very much the thoughts and emotions you have about yourself whilst you are busy doing all of these activities, throughout the day.

6. I have a sacred relationship with my body
Whether you acknowledge it or not, your body is your one true home and your most trustworthy friend. It is where everything you experience in your life occurs first. When you treat it with respect and sacredness, it will reward you tenfold in more ways than you can imagine.

7. When I feel connected to my body, I am never alone and I feel happy and alive
Negative body-image comes from thoughts and feelings that creates an energetic barrier within yourself and you cells. This leaves you feeling isolated. That’s how the body-image demon gets in. Don’t even give them a chance!

As with anything, the more you use these, write them down and say them out loud and connect to the positive feelings, the more and quicker the change can show up. Hope you find these useful in enjoying your experience of being a Diva with a positive body-image.

In Light and Appreciation.

The H Factors That Add Value To Your Life

The H Factors That Add Value To Your Life

the-h-factors-blog

You’ve probably heard about the X Factor but have you heard about the H Factors? This is not about the TV show and more about setting your own default value settings so that you will be the star in your own life.  When it comes to living a successful life, I believe there are two H factors that you must add to your value system to have this – Happiness and Health!

The motivation behind much of what humans do, is to have these two things in life. All the running after success, love and money is basically linked to these two aspects of life. Ask people what they want most in life and ultimately when you drill right down, it’s about being happy and healthy. Yet for many, these two simple factors are rare or sporadic. Many spend their lives working hard to earn money and make ends meet, only to lose along the way, the very things they have been aiming for in the first place and long-term – their happiness and health. Suddenly, the future can look and feel really bleak.

My new book ‘Fearlessly Alone – Stop the Lonely Crisis and Find Your Happy’ takes an insightful and informative look at how happiness and health are imperative to living a fulfilled life and how to achieve them. It is important to add and prioritize these values in your life, to give yourself a fighting chance at peace, prosperity and a purposeful relationship with yourself and consequently others too.

Your values are a set of core principles that you use in making decision across your life based on importance and need. Not to be confused with your beliefs, which are basically assumptions that we take to be true.  A conflict of values can arise when two important values come into play and you have to make an important life decision.  For instance, whether to stay in a job you hate and find boring for security because you’ve been there for years, or to go for a new job where you can express your value of creativity and independence but there is less job and financial security.

Throughout your life, you strive to meet your values – like respect, love, faith, happiness, health, family, abundance, time, money, etc  – and that are the backbone to so many of your choices. It’s important to ask questions when it comes to the ranking of your values, especially when having a conflict of values. Because there is a reason behind this and it may not always be what you think it is.

Prioritizing and updating your values is very important because you and the situations you find yourself in change. When I did this exercise a few years ago, imagine my astonishment when I saw that happiness and health were not even in the top 10. No wonder there seemed to be a lack around happiness and health. Actively participating in your values settings, helps to prioritize them in your subconscious mind and is boosted further when you set positive intentions. It’s about adding value to your life, when and how it serves you best.

Here is a short exercise to help you identify and update your top 10 core values are:

  1. Sit down and write down the first things that come to mind that are important to you in your life. (If you need examples of values, just google values and you can find lists to draw from.)
  2. Rank them from 1 to 10 with 1 being the most important and 10 the least.
  3. Then ask yourself if these are still valid for you?
  4. Are these values truly your own?
  5. When sorted, ask if there are any ‘new’ values that you wish to add? Add and rank them.
  6. Reflect on what has come up for you and also write down any of the beliefs that may have popped up. For example, your health depends on your genetic make-up; you can’t be happy because then people will think you are selfish.
  7. If happiness and health are not in your top 10, I invite you to add them in. Just for fun and because you can. Then sit back and watch what shows up.

When it comes to your personal values about happiness and health, the way you feel can offer up wonderful and powerful clues. Tune in to your body and sense where the feelings are physical sensations and what they feel like. For instance, do you feel heavy or light. Your body is the best barometer you will ever have when it comes to making the best life choices for you. Simply because, if something doesn’t feel right, it probably isn’t the best choice – for you, in the moment. Check in regularly as you are constantly changing with each choice you make. What makes you happy or feel healthy today, may not be the same in two weeks time.

The more you clarify your values and the beliefs you hold around happiness and health, the more confident you can be when making important life decisions. Your happiness and health and how you create and sustain them are so important to feeling confident and fulfilled in your life. Incorporating these H Factors into your decisions will put the You into Value! That’s what happened for me, once I did. And the same is possible for you too.

In Light and Appreciation

There is an “I” in Relationship

There is an “I” in Relationship

DABy7ixY3C4Many people seem to believe that the greatest gift of love to another, is to offer their love. Whilst this is indeed a precious gesture, is this really true or unconditional love?

What if,this is like offering a tool to someone that frankly they have no use for? Even though they appreciate the gesture. What if the highest intent when loving someone, is to love them in the way they need to be loved? Asking them what tool they require and if it will be useful to them. I always remember Louise Hay’s question, “how can I love you more today?”. So often I observe people in their talking about relationships saying that they want someone who will do this and that with them and to share in their interests. When they meet up for their first date, so many just talk about themselves. But what about the other person? What about what interests them?

In the methodology of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) this is a very important premise. Understanding the language of the other. If communication is to be successful, then it is imperative to use the words that make sense to the person being communicated with. This seems to make so much sense, yet many people experience difficult communication which leads to misunderstanding due to not checking in with the other person, firstly that they have understood. Have you ever experienced or overheard a conversation where you say one thing, the other person says another, there is disagreement, only to later find out that you meant the same thing? This is an example of where people with different cognitive modalities are talking, but unwittingly at each other rather than with each other. It is about choosing the form of words that suit the mental map of the other party. For example, for people who collect data visually, certain words like imagine or questions like ‘can you see?’ make the conversation flow. So for people who are auditive or kinesthetic it would certainly facilitate things to use words that ‘speak’ to them. I believe it is similar when it comes to emotional relationships, which are forms of conversation.

If people are to experience truly fulfilling, satisfying and loving relationship, where there is a vulnerable intimacy possible, I believe we must change our expectations of relationship. Especially the main one – our relationship with ourselves. We have to face our own demons or shadow selves and love them into simply being – beyond judgment – so that the shadow can expand into the light. Having experienced seriously dis-functional relationships, I chose to really sit down and take a long hard look at what kept on showing up. And then taking ownership. Standing in my responsibility as a Creator and embracing it all – the good, the bad and the ugly. For after all, it is who I am. And I choose to be in love with whatever that is and looks like.

Yes of course there is always space for expansion, however there is a huge difference when this comes from a place of judgment – or polarity reality – rather than from a space of ‘now what amazing adventure would I like to create, be, have, experience and generate next?”. Then I can come from a place and space of true being that lends a sense of communion to all relating. Then I can stand In Love and lose nothing of myself when loving another as they require it. When the ego falls away it becomes easy to do, because it is no longer about ‘how I will love you” and rather ‘let me explore the many ways to love and love you differently’.

The more I travel this road of Knowing Myself the more I understand the importance of what truly loving oneself first, means for me. It is only then that there is no requirement to be loved by another, because one already is In Love. Then what flows forth when together with another is a dance of joy and participation and of expansion and of experiencing something new each day. There is already a sense of wholeness that requires simple self-expression rather than validation from and by another. When the “I” in the relationship becomes the ‘We’ of the Relationship – The Oneness. The real love question therefore in my opinion, is in learning to speak the the language of the Beloved – the true language (and message) of love.And it starts with self-love and is perpetuated from there.

May you Be In Love!

In Light

There is no Wholistic Healing Pill

There is no Wholistic Healing Pill

photo4design.com-39220-pills-for-presentAs an Intuitive Energy Healer, both for humans and animals, I cannot stress enough the importance of transmuting the vibrational frequency at the root cause of any symptom. Until this is done, the body is locked in a vice-like repetitive loop.

Pharmaceuticals are synthetic copies of what Nature already provides us with as healing agents, such as air, water, food and plant remedies. Because they are synthetic the body’s ability to decipher their codes is hindered and this is what is labelled as ‘side-effects’. Whilst medication may be a temporary and necessary relief strategy, it cannot bring a long term solution to a dis-ease.

As far as research for cures go, please know that most of this research is funded by these very same pharmaceutical companies, who also fund most medical schools. These are profitable institutions that sadly have ever increasing profit margins, as people feel confused and scared about their health.

Many medical professionals unfortunately do not even know about or suggest alternative methods to their patients. Please be pro-active and ask them, or find out from friends or google alternative therapies. Holistic healing is about creating balancing in and between the body, mind and soul. Your health is your wealth. Don’t make it merely the business and profit margins of pharmaceuticals!

Energy work is a beautiful effective non-invasive way to transmute the energetic imprint without necessarily knowing the root cause.

The symptom is the tip of the iceberg and for true healing, i.e. wholeness, to be fulfilled, it is necessary to address the deeper lying issues under the surface. Popping a pill will not do this long-term. There is no wholistic healing pill.

Here’s to your Wholistic Health.

In Light.

Are you taste buds taking you for a ride?

Are you taste buds taking you for a ride?

bikeveggieRecently, I hauled out my juicing machine and purchased a blender and I began juicing fruit and veggies. Adding a glass of fresh fruit or veggie juice to my daily eating plan. Just like that! Not for any other reason than that my body has been asking for something more from food that what it has obviously been getting.  And it became quite vehement about it over the last few weeks.

I consider myself very fortunate too to have access to many fresh organic vegetables from my home garden, which helps a lot with availability and budget.  I have found myself enjoying this experience and actually having a lot of fun, as I go about concocting different fruit and/or vegetable cocktails. Needless to same, some have been more enjoyable to ingest than others. But even with the ghastly tasting blends, I began to notice something! Regardless of the actual taste, my body was having the time of its Life!  I definitely had more energy and the sluggishness was lifting and I noticed I was walking with a bounce in my step, feeling less achy and stiff. My body felt wonderful and was humming to me. 😉

Now before all you fervent juicers say ‘We told you so’, I do wish to confirm that I have on several previous occasions fasted and started detox juice plans.  Some were successfully completed, but none with any long-term success.  I also knew that my body did not want to experience these again and was looking for something new, quick and easy. Otherwise, quite frankly neither of us are keen to get started, not to mention keeping it up.

After a particularly horrid tasting veggie cocktail a few days ago, I did begin to wonder at the role our taste buds play in our eating habits.  I found myself wondering, ‘Am I a slave to my taste buds?’.  There is definitely a Yes answer in there to a large degree. There is no denying that eating something delicious can be orgasmic and extremely pleasurable.  But how much of what we eat leaves us feeling great and energised?

So many people experience indigestion, bloating, allergies, food disorders when it comes to food. So is it enough to eat something that simply tastes good? Just looking at the package label of most food makes it quite apparent that much of the food we think we are eating, is not ‘real’ food and has been disguised usually with chemicals to taste appealing. The chemicals often settle into the body’s tissue and long-term cause dis-ease, as the body is not able to flush them out effectively, when consumed in large quantities and over extended periods of time.  A lot of the food we consume today is basically a synthetic copy of a natural food with artificial flavouring added to make it palatable.

If you have ever suffered from a hang-over and had a toddy, then you know that the toddy that actually made you feel better, tasted simply awful.  Stories of old, always tell of the beverage that tasted worse than anything and yet it restored a sense of health.

I remember back to when I first started using structured water just over a year ago. Now I am a coffee drinker. I love the taste and smell of coffee. So it was a ritual to begin my day with a good cup of filtered fresh coffee.  Drinking structured water changed my taste bud.  For several weeks after beginning to drink structured water, I found the taste of my usual coffee had changed, so much so, that I no longer even enjoyed drinking my coffee. So I stopped. Then after about two month’s I suddenly desired a coffee again.  This time, my coffee tasted different and deliciously so. I realized that my taste buds had gone through a detox.  It could well be also why, a few month’s ago, I started getting intuitions from my body that it desired more nutritional and fresh foods.

Freedom is about being willing and able to respond to life and make choices that contribute to making life better. When one is a slave ………………. to anything, this freedom is absent.  Whilst tasty and delicious food may fulfill your taste buds, is it actually nourishing your body or are you slowly dying from nutritional starvation ?

How can you tell?  Well those symptoms of bloating, indigestion, rashes, drowsiness, headaches and lack of energy etc could be a clue that what your body requires and what your taste buds are telling you is okay to eat, are not in alignment. If it helps you to keep notes, then jot down those times when you feel off. It could be a once off, however if it is happening more often than not, then taking a look at the fuel you are putting into your body, may be a great place to start. And of course, you could ask you body what it want’s to eat. I almost always muscle test everything now and I am amazed at the new foods and tastes that are showing up for me to explore. The great thing with plain natural unseasoned food, is that you get to play with flavours and spices and find those that marry well together. And you also know what is in your food.

Eating well is not just about food that tastes nice. The fast food industry is an example of where food can taste nice but long-term does not provide ample nutrition for the human body to sustain and heal itself in an optimal way.  How you hydrate your body is also important and despite all of these fancy drinks available, the body really only requires water and if at all possible, structured water because it is energized and freed from entrainment, i.e. memory.

The quality of our food is of the utmost importance as it is the fuel for our physical bodies. I am not suggesting that you always eat food that tastes horrible. I have experienced that the more natural my food is, the more I actually get to taste the natural flavour of what I am eating. If you don’t like it then you don’t have to eat it.  Nature, however, provides us with a wide variety of yummy natural foods that taste good and that – even better – are good fuel.  Start to integrate them slowly into your life. There is no need to give up anything. I still have my coffee and enjoy chocolate.

Please, don’t let your taste buds take you on a ride – especially to a place where you do not want to find yourself or experience ill-health !

Here’s to healthy living and eating. Bon Appetit.
