Daily Aligning with Love, Abundance, and Peace #206

I’m grateful for the love I feel when I treat my body respectfully. This one took me a lot of time to figure out. I went through years of abusing my body with poor choices. I still neglect her from time to time. When I’m showing her the love and respect that she deserves, I feel a love that permeates into everything I say, do, and think. If you have been keeping up with the daily posts, you saw the last two days were about exercise and walking (click for links) for the benefits of how doing them makes me feel. These last two days is what led me here today. As I started treating my body better, I starting feeling the love for my body more clearly. I started noticing all the things my body can do. Treating my body with respect made me want to show it even more love by what I was eating and drinking. This isn’t a forced feeling like a diet. It’s a love feeling. I’m taking care of something that I love.This was just the reminder I needed to make me want to make sure that I’m showing my body respect DAILY!

Today, I commit to respecting my body. As I finished the last sentence, I picked up my water bottle. Drinking water is showing my body respect. My body needs water. When I don’t give her enough water, I’m neglecting her. As I’m writing this post so many thoughts are flowing into my head of things I can do to show my body respect today. Here are some in no particular order:

  • Stretching
  • Walking
  • Core Strengthening exercises
  • Eating healthy
  • Drinking water
  • Dancing
  • Tapping (EFT)—to work through stress
  • Meditating
  • Epsom Salt bath
  • Massage
  • Heating or icepack when needed
  • Supplements
  • Smoothies with added ginger root, cinnamon, and honey
  • Movement breaks throughout the day
  • Not doing things that have a negative effects on my organs/health
  • Chakra work
  • Plenty of sleep

These are just initial thoughts of things I can do. It doesn’t mean I will do them all. I just know the more respect I show my body, the better I feel. The better I feel, the better I treat myself. The better I treat myself, the better I treat others. The better I treat others, the faster the world changes in a positive direction… these are patterns of thoughts and behaviors I can get behind! These are the things that keep me aligned with the energy of love, abundance, and peace.

With Love, Abundance, and Peace,

Daily Aligning with Love, Abundance, and Peace #204

I’m grateful for the energy I get from exercising. When I started exercising on a regular basis, I realized I had an upswing in energy. I didn’t feel like I was hitting a brick wall around 4 PM. I felt better during dinner and clean-up. I slept better. My stress levels dropped way down, so the energy was a peaceful energy. When I stopped exercising on a regularly basis my energy dropped, mood dropped, and stress levels increased again. I’m grateful I got the reminder of how much exercise helped me in ways not related to losing weight. Exercise is such a positive tool for my physical and mental well-being. I know that when I’m making time to exercise, even if it’s 20 minutes, I’m doing something physical to align my energy with love, abundance, and peace. I’m so grateful for that.

Today, I commit to exercising to feel more energy. Right now, my weight is in the range I’m comfortable with. It’s in these times I need to remember there are other reasons to exercise beyond losing weight. One of those reasons is the increase in GOOD energy. Nervous, stressful, vengeful, angry, and/or chaotic energy is all linked to the energy of fear, lack, and separation. When I don’t take actions steps to take care of my energy, I can easily slip into cycles that will keep me in the chaos. Exercising is one of the ways I like to physically shift my energy into the space of love, abundance, and peace. It took me decades, but I finally found a few exercise programs that work well for me while also getting me the results I want. We each have to find that for ourselves. I pay attention to my energy when I’m working out to see if it’s making me feel better physically and mentally. If it doesn’t, it’s not the right exercise for me. I have friends who do all kinds of different programs. Some I like, and some I don’t. Some I will do for a short time, and others I don’t like from the first time doing it.

Finding the programs that fuels the energy we want to exude is important. I love the feeling of walking in nature, going on my Simply Fit board, and doing the Classical Stretch work out with Miranda Esmonde-White. I will go through times where I do other movement workouts, but I tend to go back to the activities that get my energy where I want it. When we pay attention to our energy, our bodies tell us what they need.

With Love, Abundance, and Peace,
