Have you ever kept a secret thinking that no one knew?
The thing I've discovered about secrets is that it's actually obvious someone is hiding something. You might not know what they are hiding, but that they are hiding something...that's true.....and you can usually sense it.
For me, almost my whole life I've been aware of people's insecurities that they hide.
Probably because I was trying to hide mine my whole life.....
My secret WAS that even though I am an incredible body worker, was a talented althete, and an expert on body's....I hated my body. Hated it....
Hated it so much that I came pretty close to starving myself to death....and even then I thought I was fat.
You see, I never thought that I could LOVE my body. I never thought that I would be okay with it. Never.
Until, one day, I found the tools of Access Consciousness....and slowly over time....everything changed!
And little did I know that when I stopped spending hours a day agonizing over what I ate, how much, that I ate too much, not enough, didn't exercise, or needed to exercise 3 hours a day...that all that mental head tripping was keeping me from creating my life. It was like I was in survival mode....only I didn't know it.
Once I shifted my self-hatred and incessant judgment of myself and my body, life got easier, lighter, happier. I lost weight eating ice cream and exercising less. I stopped judging me...and I started creating my life.
I went from broke, depressed, hungry for anything....to traveling the world and lit up facilitating people of all walks of life to create the life of their dreams. You see, what I've found is that most people have no idea how much time they spend judging themselves or worrying about something in their lives...this judgment or worry keeps people from accessing their knowing....and if you cut off your knowing (or awareness) then you can't follow the energy to create your future in a way that is beyond what you can imagine.
My life changed once I found the tools of Access Consciousness. My body changed. My business changed. My relationships changed. My money flows changed. Life got brighter and I got happier.
So whether or not you judge your body, the size of your thighs, your bank account, your communication skills, your age, your success, your retirement....it all stops you from accessing the magic that is inside of each of you.
So my message is....stop judging and start creating. The world is waiting for you to be lit up!
When you judge you, secretly shame you or your body, it doesn't just impact you, it impacts your relationships, your confidence, your communication skills, your decision making skills, and so much more.
If you know, it is time. Time to stop judging, time to stop hating, time to stop hiding, time to stop keeping secrets......
I invite you join me on a journey that will help you get out of judgment in every area of your life, please go here to see what the magic is all about!!
One of the places that I’ve judged myself the most is as a mother.I like to call myself a recovering perfectionist,
All I could think about once I had a child was getting everything ‘right’. I used to get hysterical when my first born had to drink tap water or eat food that wasn’t organic. I thought I was doing her body permanent damage! When my second child was born via cesarean instead of a the ‘perfect’ home-birth that I had planned, I launched myself into several months of depression that even my go-to tools of yoga and mediation could not bring me out from under. I couldn’t even get nursing right. After breastfeeding both of my children well past 1 year, my body was consistently 10-15 pounds below my pre-baby weight. I know – not the typical complaint of a new mother, and still, it caused me to feel undesirable, boyish, and like sex was the furthest thing from my mind!
When I came across Katherine McIntosh’s no-judgment diet in her
I’ll Have What She’s Having Program and the tools of Access Consciousness…
…it was the first time that I even became aware of the judgment that I was functioning from.Not just of myself, but of wanting to ‘fix’ everyone else or share what would be the thing that would make everything good and better and perfect for them. I was in a constant state of judging myself for not being good enough and judging everyone else for not choosing what I thought must be ‘right’. NOT FUN AT ALL!!!
When I began Katherine’s program, I thought I’d end some of the judgment towards my body (couldn’t be that much could there be?). I had no idea how it would change every area of my life.
I started to look at myself in the mirror with such gentleness and gratitude that it brought me to tears.Here I had been judging my body, abusing it by going against its knowing, and my body was here, STILL LOVING ME.
How brilliant are our bodies?
And by the end of the no judgment diet and Katherine’s 30 Day program,
the craziest thing happened….
I got out of judgment of every area of my life.
I got out of judgment of my money flows and what business and ‘work’ supposedly mean. Which all led to me increasing my income 10 fold within the span of a few months.
I got out of judgment of my husband and kids and family – which led to so much more ease and joy at home and offers for babysitting and contribution in all other areas.
I got out of judgment of sex and relationship and my body has literally been in tears of gratitude for how much more pleasurable and enjoyable sex and orgasm are now – and what else is possible beyond this??
I now ask my body questions daily about what would contribute to it. I’ve used the no-judgment diet as a way to launch myself full throttle into other Access Consciousness classes and receiving them on a whole new level. I’ve chosen bodywork from Dr. Dain Heer and other brilliant Access facilitators that have shifted my whole reality.
I’ve stepped up and chosen a whole lot more of me, and the change that that has created has been nothing short of magic. I honor what a massive contribution getting out of judgment has been and continues to be, and I am so grateful to Katherine and this program for showing me the door to a completely different possibility.
I wonder what change you can create by choosing no-judgment for you?
