On April 22nd in Bali, Indonesia, I sat amongst a group of wonderful, soulful women. Think flowers in your hair, lush rainforests and tall coconut palm trees, hidden pathways, blissful waterfalls pounding the rocks, vegan-gluten free buffet whilst soaking up wisdom and being mesmerised by incredible female speakers and instructors.
One particular speaker really stood out to me. I was completely mesmerised and blown away by the way she carried herself. Her energy and presence was contagious! She stood up on the stage and her presence filled the entire room. Each and every one of us, were listening so attentively. That’s what happens when you glowy from within. You literally light up an entire room.
Do you know what surprised me the most?
This woman wasn’t a size 6.
She didn’t have a Victoria’s Secret body or even your average, ‘normal’ size. But she was fiercely glowing. Magnetically radiant. Overflowing with heartfelt confidence.
As I watched her I kept thinking ‘oh my gosh that is the power of a woman who has fully accepted and owned her worth’. A woman who is super present within her body, so attentive to the present moment that she brings YOU into the present moment.
Her presence inspires you to get out of your mind, leave the conversation with your inner mean girl and come into the present moment.
Do you know what’s so magnetic about a woman like this?
When you speak to her she’s not up in her mind thinking ‘ugh I look so fat in this’ or ‘I need to pull my stomach in’ or ‘oh no, what do I say now? why do I sound so silly?’ She’s fully present in the here and now – owning every part of her.
Whilst I’m fully committed to nourishing my body with whole foods, exercising with love, developing a healthy, abundant relationship with food and stressing less, this event was a reminder that owning your worth has no physical restriction.
How often do you say to yourself ‘once I get defined abs, a perky tush and clear skin, I’ll feel confident in myself’ or ‘once I fit into that hot dress, I’ll be happy with my body’.
You can feel gorgeous, sensual and confident at a size 6 or 16.
Own your body. Feel vibrant and alive in every cell of your glorious body. When you begin to omit that confident, sensual, self-accepting vibe, the people around you become magnetised by your energy, so much that they aren’t even focusing on your ‘flaws’ because you aren’t either.
So beautiful, now it’s over to you. What is your relationship like with your body? Is your mean girl telling you that you need steel cut abs before you can feel a certain way? Also what are you tips on body confidence? I would love to hear them as would the thousand of other women who visit this blog. Thank you so much for showing up and sharing your light to this world x
