How could I not have known how worthy I am of receiving?
How could I not have seen my true light and value?
How could I have spent the last 36 years without constantly honouring and bowing before the divinity that moves through me, that I am?
May I remember to bless myself, to love myself, to nurture myself and to honour myself.
May I eat food consciously and with gratitude.
May I stretch my beautiful body and feel the strength and grace in my muscles.
May I thank my mind for all the beautiful thinking it does for me.
May I appreciate my joints for bending and staying healthy and lubricated.
May I honour the tremendous amount of work that my organs, skin and bodily systems complete, without ever taking a break.
May I look at myself in the mirror and know that my body temple is magnificent and that it houses my bright and shiny soul who wants to come out to play and to love and to dance with all of creation.
May I remember to thank my heart, for beating and for leading me into this new territory of being open and vulnerable.
May I celebrate the fierce passion arising within me, the one that makes me feel like I have the power to ignite that same fire within the bellies and hearts of all.
May I honour myself so much that I never once question whether I should be authentic or not.
May my heart be light and may I nourish myself with love, healthy food, prayer, chanting, nature, dance and wonderful company as never before.
May every choice I make and every breath I take be rooted in love and gratitude and reverence for the being that I am.
May I always remember that I am worth it and that it is never a sacrifice to stop and take better care of all of my precious self.
Namaste and Wohoo, all at once : )
Note from me: I listened to the Guided Meditation for Conscious Eating from Ramdesh Kaur’s meditation CD called the Body Temple. It opened me up to all the ways that I could and wanted to honour myself more deeply. It was a deeply transformational experience that led me to hearing the words above in my head.
