Body Parts

I know this exercise might sound strange but if you do all the exercises I post you will see a change in the way you think and feel about yourself.

Here is this weeks challenge:

Take an inventory of your body. Make a list of the parts you like and the parts you do not like. Identify why you like the parts that you do. Then identify why you do not like some other parts.

You may find some powerful emotions associated with various parts of your body.

You may have had some painful or humiliating experiences that you have tried to forget.

Close your eyes and visualize that part in your mind. Tell that part that you forgive it for not being perfect . Tell it that you will be more accepting of it from now on. Send it your love and acceptance.
