Have you ever considered how much our judgments, beliefs, emotions and points of view determine the shape, health and the deterioration of our bodies?
We know that everything is energy, including our bodies, and while objects around us appear solid they are actually molecules and space. Our bodies are also intimately subjected to our thoughts and belief systems which means they are very dynamic. They bleed and heal, they break and mend, they generate and degenerate, and since seeing the results of clients who have benefited from the Access Energetic Facelift™ I am seeing facial features change in the space of a 90 minute session. I have witnessed the tightening of skin, lessening of lines, faces becoming more plump and radiant instead of drawn and tired. And while I may be beginning to sound like a beauty product commercial, that is not my point here; the point is the amazing capacity that our bodies have for change and how much our beliefs and points of view contribute to that.
If we believe in the deterioration and degeneration of bodies (which is entrained into our society) then that is what we create. So without questioning that, we slap on anti-aging products and accept that it’s all downhill from here.
Anytime you look in a mirror you affirm these points of view as well as judgments about being too fat, too thin, too ugly, too short, too weak and so on, and over time we lock our bodies into that particular reality. The crazy part is that most of our beliefs did not originate from us! They were absorbed from our parents and caregivers throughout our childhood.
The Access Energetic Facelift™ offers so much potential for change, not just in our faces, but our bodies and our lives, because they are all interrelated. The more you receive this body process the more dynamic the benefits and it is said that after 20 sessions the results can be permanent.
What I, and many others have found, is that you also begin to develop a deeper connection with your body. You feel more kindness and caring towards yourself and become more present in your body. So, along with this wonderful body process, here are some tips for creating more kindness and change with your body:
- Avoid mirrors for a week
We don’t realise just how much of our lives are spent judging our bodies and how much we project these judgments onto ourselves until we turn our back on the mirrors and start to feel our bodies instead of looking at them. If you need the mirror to apply make-up or do your hair, do it quickly and just focus on the task at hand rather than how you look. If you notice a judgment pop in use tip no. 4 listed below.(This exercise is just to give you an idea of how much we judge ourselves through mirrors and what it feels like not to do that. After this week, use the mirror again and use tip no 4 below to clear all the judgements.)
- Eyes closed in the shower/bath
This may sound ridiculous and obviously you may need to open your eyes momentarily to grab the shampoo bottle and not mix it up with the conditioner bottle, but for this exercise spend as much of your shower/bath time as is possible (and safe) with your eyes closed. What this does is it stops you projecting outwards and brings your focus onto your body so you notice how you feel rather than how you look. It’s a really interesting exercise to do and you may also notice how much of your time is spent focused on external things instead of actually developing a relationship and deeper connection with your body.
- Connection Points
As often as possible become aware of your body. If you’re sitting, bring your focus onto 3 points where your body connects to something solid, i.e. bum on chair, feet on floor and back against chair. If you’re standing you could use feet on floor, one hand on chest, one hand on belly.
Then take a deep breath, close your eyes and feel these points of connection. This will help to keep you grounded and centred and bring your awareness back into this now moment rather than what you could, would, should be doing.
- Interesting Point of View
This is a wonderful tool from Access Consciousness that you can use every time you notice yourself making judgments about your body or yourself. Simply say (to yourself or aloud) “Interesting point of view, I have that point of view”. Repeat a few times.
This statement will stop you from aligning and agreeing, or resisting and reacting to the judgment which will prevent you from making it significant, real or solid in your life.
- Gratitude for You
Each day, find one thing that you are grateful TO YOURSELF for. This will help you begin to see yourself from a space of kindness and appreciation rather than judgment.
- Body Processes
The Access Energetic Facelift™ and the Access Bars® are amazing body processes that complement each other beautifully. Your body learns how to receive kindness and caring as well as opening up possibilities for radical change in your body and your life.
What would it take for you to receive kindness and caring for you?
