At the start of January on the very first Sunday of the month I took a Journey.
The First in a Series of Three Workshops that were to help bring out the Sacred and Savvy Goddess in us all. Starting with working on our Health.
I had enrolled in all three workshops but was a bit hesitant on attending the first one being it was on Health which usually translate to how you can lose weight and focuses on the body image of people who have weight on them ..
I am have NEVER had this problem and it has been a bit of a curse.
So I walked in with a big wall up saying this is not the workshop for me I don’t need this I am really only here because it was a package of three and I wanted the other two.
Well I was bought down a peg or two and did learn a lot about my Health.
Looking at how we see ourselves and our body image .. yes most people see the overweight but I was seeing “too skinny”
Because I was “too skinny” and had people forever telling me to “eat something” I used to do just that eat and eat with pretty much no worries on what I ate and when.
During the two hour workshop I discovered how my mental health really affected my physical health and this is the case for all of us.
I also had a chance to discover how being too thin had affected my health in the earlier years and even today.
I urge everyone to explore this subject of why your health is where it is today.
This workshop along with the next two workshops which I will bring up in another post. Have really helped me discover me and how I tick bringing out the way I put myself down and sabotage myself because of how I am seen by others or rather how “I think” others see me.
I would like to say that when you are in the situation to comment on a persons appearance and especially weight to make sure you are always positive it doesn’t matter how large or small the person is they will have body issues and even self esteem issues I think even the most well put together person mentally and physically has issues at some time.
So PLEASE don’t tell a slim person to “put on some weight” or “ you can have some of my weight” because you may find that the person has been struggling for years to do just that and in doing so has adopted unhealthy eating habits to try put on weight when all that happened is lost energy and health by eating junk.
I can vividly remember going to the doctors with my mother when I was in my teens and the doctor telling me I had anorexia .. I couldn’t believe it .. here I was eating like a horse trying to put on weight and this man had labeled me with a disease that said I wanted to be even thinner. I changed doctors immediately.
I also tried ringing around the weightloss companies thinking they may have a weight gain program ended up going on a program that was designed for men to lose weight was on the highest calorie diet .. I didn’t put on any weight .. I didn’t lose any weight but out of that I did discover that I had more energy and vitality from eating regular and good food.
I eventually got some weight on me wasn’t really until after I had my children and I am still considered skinny by most but I am healthy and that is the main thing.
So to wrap up … going through the workshop on HEALTH really pointed out just that the “HEALTH” aspects of your life and gave good insight into how you see your health and we planned and implemented ways to improve it.
I really enjoyed it in the end and came away with a lot to think about and would highly recommend it to anyone who needs to find themselves and combined with the two other workshops it is a great way to shine as a goddess in your own light.
