Want to Improve Your Relationship with Your Body? Try Gratitude

If you don’t have a good relationship with your body, I encourage you to start a daily gratitude practice. Then write your own vow, your own love letter. Read them daily to yourself – preferably out loud, while looking at yourself naked in a mirror, but if that’s too much, just read them to yourself silently, fully clothed, in a place of your choosing. Consistency is more important than the specifics of how it’s done.

7 Sacred Steps to Loving Your Body

It’s nearly impossible to love and accept yourself when you don’t think you’re good enough just as you are. You’ve got to dive deep, go in and heal that inner critic and your enoughness issues. Psychologist & Body Love Expert Dr. Mary Pritchard openly shares her own journey to self-love and the 7 sacred steps she uses with her clients and that also helped her heal her own body love issues.

Reclaiming Body Love: Why Self-Love is the Key to Healing and Transformation

YOU, above everyone else, deserve your love. It is the most precious gift you can give yourself. As women we’ve been so pressured to be all and do all that deep down we think we’re somehow flawed if we can’t meet these unrealistic expectations we put on ourselves. So we do things for others rather than for ourselves because we want their love and approval.
But here’s the thing: If we can’t give those things to ourselves, how can we expect or accept them from others?

Reclaiming Body Love: I Am Enough! You are Enough!

Alright ladies, repeat after me: I am strong. I am courageous. I am beautiful. I am powerful. I am enough. Body Love Expert Dr. Mary Pritchard shares her own healing journey and a simple exercise to support you in owning your ‘enoughness’.

Reclaiming Body Love: Intentional Body Love

Through healing my own my body image issues I learned two important things that I now incorporate into my work with my clients. First, Body Love is a skill. You can learn it and, like any skill, improve with practice. You only have to open yourself up and allow the transformation to occur. Second, Body Love is also as an activity, something that involves action that we both consciously and physically take part in creating, and not just feelings or state of mind. Part of the skill of loving your body is that you actually have to mindfully do it. Grab your journal and pen and do the transformational process shared in this issue and begin your body love journey.

The Goddess Guide to Playfulness

As I continued to ignore her question – I was too busy to take a day off! – the Universe kept sending me little reminders. Four head colds in one month followed by a two-month bout with walking pneumonia, and a picture in a magazine that read, “Your weekend called. It wants its fun back” later, I remembered to take my own advice, practice what I preach, and have a little fun.

Happiness Begins with Self-Care

Wow. The choice to stop over-giving, to take care of ourselves, to be happy really IS all up to us.

I also decided to take my own advice and go back to the 50% rule. What’s the 50% rule? I’ve heard it described a few different ways, but the idea is this:

Becoming Fearless: Learning to Walk in Your Power

For the next 30 days, I want you to do something that truly gets you walking in your power. Something that scares you a little – or a lot – but needs to be done for you to own your truth and live the life you were meant to live.

Reconnecting with My Inner Goddess

The truth is in that moment of awakening, which I’ve since come to see as a sacred gift from the Divine, the layers of false masks and beliefs that had kept me hiding my divine truth, my inner magnificence were instantaneously removed. That’s when I started living from the inside out. That’s when I connected to my Soul’s Purpose. That’s when I started being Me again.
