Loud and subtle ways of rejecting your body

02 August 2023

Rejection of your physical body is almost a thing that is rejected in itself. It’s not cool to admit that you do it if you live in a world where you’re supposed to be aware, spiritual or successful. So let’s start with being honest with yourself if you’re doing it. Which most of us are – often way more than we’re aware of if we dig a little deeper.

The more obvious ways of rejecting your body could look like self-hatred, negative thoughts about it, wanting it to be, look and feel different, self-harm, or hiding it and wanting to be invisible.

But the more subtle ways of rejection are often overlooked and normalized and could be disconnected from feeling, disciplining the body with exercise, diet, and bedtime from a place of “or else…”, or starving it of nutrition, pleasure, play, care, and love. It could also be keeping it in addiction to dopamine, stress, substances, etc, or a feeling of it disappointing you and being a burden, by being ill, in pain, weak, aging, and dying.

I’ve seen so much magic in my programs when people start looking for what feels good and giving it to themselves with loving attention. Their heart opens up. They relax. They start to feel safe in their own body. They feel good about being themselves.

But to make this shift, it’s important to understand what protection mechanism and beliefs the rejection is coming from and LOVE. ALSO. THAT. So that we don’t just override it with new musts and shoulds of being loving…

The fifth episode of the LOVE ALSO THIS series dives into the rejection of your physical body and uncovers the underlying belief that often drives the rejection. We look at both obvious and less obvious ways you direct negative attention to your body and the consequences of that.
