Last night I was lucky enough to see a screening of the film EMBRACE, in which Taryn Brumfitt explores the global issue of body loathing, inspiring us to change the way we feel about ourselves and think about our bodies.
You may have seen this picture:
It was seen by over 100 million people worldwide and sparked an international media frenzy when she posted it in 2013.
In an age where we’re bombarded from every angle, screen and billboard by photo-shopped images, and our often dodgy, at best, sense of self-worth, self-appreciation and self-acceptance can fragile, this film and Taryn’s message deserve to be sung from the rooftops.
These issues of self-acceptance, feeling at ease with yourself, loving yourself and acknowledging that YOU ARE PERFECT JUST THE WAY YOU ARE, are recurring themes in my clients’ sessions. Commonly we don’t even consider these things, and are actively putting our energies into perpetuating and fueling our negative beliefs, rather than living with a conscious appreciation of our amazing bodies. And yet, if this sense of self love is realised, the joy and ease of being that results in our everyday life is tantamount to throwing open the gates to let the light flood in.
We all know that we’re each our own hardest critic. We’d NEVER talk to others in the way that we berate and criticise ourselves silently and oh so damagingly.
So, if you get the chance, go and see EMBRACE. There’s more information here. It is enlightening, thought-provoking, shocking and inspiring.
And if you’d like to no longer be restricted by your limiting beliefs and wish instead feel strong, content and comfortable in yourself and easier in your utterly amazing body, drop me a message to find out more about how I can help you naturally to achieve a happier state of being just the way you are.
