Welcome to WEEK FOUR of Reclaim Your Wildly Feminine Body. Last week, we began to dig into the limiting beliefs that you have about your own body, or the female body in general. It is SO IMPORTANT that we acknowledge these beliefs and how they affect our lives if we want to embody our feminine radiance. Limiting beliefs are what pull us back, keep us feeling stuck. If you feel like you often take one step forward and then two steps back when it comes to the relationship with your body, it is likely that limiting beliefs are at work.

This week we are going to explore how these beliefs FEEL in your body, and on our coaching call this week we are going to begin the process of what I call “wiggling them”. They are basically like a loose tooth that needs to come out; and we are not going to yank it out all at once, but rather wiggle it bit by bit. Though these thoughts are often very heavy and deeply entrenched, we are going to approach them with curiosity and a sense of play. Is there a chance they are not even true? Could there be another way of relating to your body?

This week includes THREE VIDEOS: the intro, the movement practice, and an exercise called The Body Compass. There are also two sets of questions to answer in your journal, so be sure to scroll all the way to the bottom of the page so you don’t miss them!

Step One: Watch the Intro Video

Step Two: Answer the following questions in your journal

  • What would need to be true in order for you to love your body?
  • How were negative feelings treated in your house growing up?
  • Be honest with yourself. What do you do to deal with negative feelings that you want to avoid feeling? These feelings could be anger, fear, frustration, sadness or jealousy to name a few.
  • Is this a healthy way to deal with these emotions? If not, what is a better way of dealing with them?
  • What feelings and emotions have emerged as you have begun to come back into your body?
  • What is one thing you have been avoiding dealing with because you are afraid of how it will feel?

Step Four: Complete The Body Compass Meditation Part 1 (10 minutes)

Step Five: Answer the following questions in your journal right after completing the Body Compass Meditation above

  • Where did you feel sensation in the body when thinking of the negative body experience?
  • What did it feel like? Stick with sensory words. Was it tight or loose, hot or cold, contracted or open? Try to stay away from concept words like “anxious” or “angry” and go for pure physical sensation.
  • On a scale from 0 to negative 10, where negative 10 is the absolutely worst feeling you can think of and zero is neutral, how would you rate this feeling?
