My Body Beautiful
I'm sure if you are reading this you don't believe the above. It's hard isn't it, to believe it?
It's hard to think that anyone could look at you and find you attractive.
It's hard to think people want to be around you, listen to what you have to say.
It's hard to push yourself forward when all you want to do is hide.
I hear you; I have felt exactly the same.
I spent 6 years in a relationship where I wasn't happy, just because I didn't think anyone else would want me.
Then I spent 9 years with a guy after I found out he had cheated on me after 1 year - all because I didn't feel worthy, or beautiful. I believed this crappy guy was the best I could get, so I stayed - and that caused a whole heap of more traumas.
I've stayed in jobs I hated because it was easy, and I was terrified of being rejected by going for a new job or promotion. A total of 20 years - in well paid but soul-destroying work.
I hated buying clothes, nothing I wanted to wear would fit me, I felt frumpy and fat all the time. At least that what I was telling myself and that is what I was seeing in the mirror. I've been in floods of tears in the middle of a shopping mall becase nothing I could find would fit me.
I've shied away from making new friends, accepting dinner invitations, going on dates all because I hated my body - it didn't look perfect like in the magazines. I was so self-conscious, especially around glamorous looking people.
With EFT we explore the WHY we think how we do about ourselves. What happened to our younger self that made us create a survival mechanism to keep ourselves small, to keep ourselves hidden, to not be too demanding?
Once I started to explore my past and isolate specific areas that created this belief, the belief that I wasn't worthy, that I wasn't good enough I slowly but surely deleted the connection, and reframed them into a more positive healthy view of myself.
I dug out a couple of photos below of me at Christmas 10 years apart. The left is 2009 and the right 2019. Back then I hated my body, I had no real confidence in my ability, but we know how to put on a bloody good act don't we!
No-one, I knew back them would have believed it - I was living in Poland, not being able to speak Polish - surely you have to be confident to do that? I didn't have any friends though, I was hiding.
I look at the old me in those pictures and I think, ahh you look beautiful, why didn't you realise it - and that makes me a little sad inside.
There are two ways that you too can start your journey to "Your Body Beautiful".
1 - Join one of my regular 1.5hr workshops in Brookvale where you can experience the effects of EFT in a small intimate group environment - bring a friend, come together. Spaces are very limited on these as I only have 4 people per workshop so buy your tickets early - All listed on Eventbrite.
2 - If you really mean business, then jump in and book your private one on one, tailored specifically to you Kick Start programme. This is 3 x 1hr sessions totally focused on you to really dig deep and erase those younger self traumas.
Either way we will use Clinical EFT or “Tapping” to sucker punch those negative self-beliefs.
What to expect
To leave no longer telling yourself “I'll never look good”.
To no longer fight the continuous battle with yourself to “try and put on a brave happy face”
To leave with and increased appreciation for yourself and your body.
To be empowered to know that you now have choices and you can make them.
To believe in yourself, you have the ability to make anything happen!
To meet other people that feel exactly the same way as you and to know you are never alone.
EFT is not a 5 minute wonder, the effects of your session do not have a shelf life (like our favourite foods do), as long as we get the core issue - they last forever – so be careful what you wish for 😊
N.B. Please note that if you are easily triggered then a group workshop is not the environment for you to experience EFT. EFT is a powerful tool and can bring to the surface lots of emotions.
