I am not this body.
I am so much more.
And so.. Are You!
When I was in Corsica, I took some major steps towards all of the realizations I am going to talk about now.
I realised.. I am not this body.
My, and your, body is the home of a soul.
It is the vehicle for you to wander through this life.
It is the magical tool to let your soul experience smells, sounds, colours, touches etc..
But you are not your body.
I say it again.. YOU ARE SO MUCH MORE.
It is nearly sad how it took me 20 years to start honestly freeing myself from the thinking that I am this skin.
That my face is me. That all that matters and that I have got on this planet are these forms and physicalities.
Wow.. and then I realized how wrong I was.
My body is the temple of my soul. And so are yours.
Inside this magically functioning cave of small particles, wich perfectly found together, sits this endless and glowing soul which cant be defined by labels.
Our focus is so manipulated by too many things. Our brain is so twisted and focused on the things we can see but… Do you really only want to be this body, when you can be so much more?
Do I want to be only this body ?
When I started realizing that ME is not what I can see in the mirror. That my worth has nothing to do with my weight. That my beauty is not measurable by societies standarts.
I am the light inside my soul, the small sparkles the universe gave to me.
My worth is not countable, because it is unquestionable.
I am beautiful, because I decide to be.
And then…. The second you realize.. pressure drops from your shoulders and your prison not longer holds you back.
For way too long I suppressed my inner light. I was so caught up in „serving" only this physical image and only pushing more and more and more to somehow maintain what I thought defined my worth.
I caged this beautiful little girl inside myself in a dark place. There was no space for weakness.
There was no space for diversity.
There was no energy for creativity.
There was no room to test who I want to be. I did so much harm on my soul. I didn’t realize how my eyes weren't shining and all this LOVE I carry in my heart couldn't find its way in this world, because I was too obsessed curving and shaping my body into these unrealistic shapes and states.
I nearly sacrificed my health. (to be specific I completely messed up my digestive system and I lost my period for over two years)
I knew something was wrong. I knew this wasn't right and this wasn't sustainable. But I was too scared to chose my health, to chose healing and giving my body what it needed.
Why? Because I really believed that this body is me. I truly believed in what society tells us day by day.
That all we have to offer to this world is only this little of a body. I lost (and lose) myself in what society tells us everyday, I get caught up in glittering worlds of social media. But all of that is not real. It is not real. I was wrong.
Ooh GIRL. I was wrong..
Now when I started to chose…..
