In this post I’m giving you an introduction to Week Three from my book May Cause Miracles, which is all about body image.

May Cause Miracles Week 3: Body Image

In the video below I talk about how our bodies can be perceived as vehicles for spiritual growth and healing. This perception guides us to respect our bodies in a whole new way. Watch this video to prepare for Week Three of May Cause Miracles!

What to expect from Week 3 of ‘May Cause Miracles’

I’ve learned through my spiritual practice that my body has to be considered a vehicle and a messenger for extending love to every being I meet. When I’m in that place of using my body for all the wrong-minded things — to get something, to feel good enough, to abuse myself — that’s when I detach from my true power.

I share very openly in this chapter about all the ways that I was very abusive to my body for many years, whether through overeating or drug addiction or alcoholism.

Loving and respecting your body

May Cause Miracles by Gabrielle BernsteinAs I gained self-respect through my spiritual practice, I began to respect my body immensely.

Therefore, the main lesson throughout this chapter is how we can gain a greater sense of respect for our body and begin to release the addictions and the fear-based patterns that we project upon ourselves.

This is powerful for anyone who’s struggling with food, body image, any type of addiction. It will also help if you’re abusing yourself through negative thoughts towards your body or even just having too much coffee or too much sugar. Those subtle things that we do to ourselves can greatly affect our physical being.

Ultimately, this chapter on body image is about embracing our body as a powerful vehicle for transformation. Open up your heart and your mind to the lessons, and take each lesson very seriously. Because each subtle shift throughout this book can create miraculous change.
