Your Sensual Self: How to Love Yourself
Authentically Love yourself. What a concept! Sounds good but have you embodied the concept?
Like many American women, I have suffered from body image issues, food issues, and intimacy issues. I had many years of suffering and I can say now that I do not suffer from wanting my body to be any different than what “she” is. Now after many years, I love her just the way she is. Pleasure has been the path to release my suffering.

I am not perfect. Changing habits are a lifelong process. Sometimes I can slip and be hard on my body however now at least I have a high level of respect and honor for her. I treat her more like a temple.
The main shift that helped me to really love my body was to feel pleasure in “her”. When I began to open up my sexual energy in a safe and wholesome way, that was when I truly began to heal my body image issues and food issues. A deeper sense of self-love arose in me. I know this will help you authentically love yourself too.
I love food! But really what I love is sensual pleasure. Are you the same? I believe women were designed to feel most at home when they can experience their sensual selves. Sensuality IS how you authentically love yourself. Or rather safe sensuality.
The challenge, or if I dare say, “problem” is that we as women have not had a safe place for sensual expression. It has been associated with being a bad girl or even nasty. That is not the case. Your sensuality as women is sacred. It is what gives you a feeling of aliveness as a woman.
Unfortunately, our sensuality has been associated more often than not, with those things that don’t lift our spirit. Experiencing your sensual self in a wholesome, safe and healthy way has a profound healing effect, I believe, on any woman. When you, as a woman, begin to experience pleasure in your body, in a way that is healing, awakening and nurturing AND also unattached to an agenda, you will begin to heal your body image issues and food issues.
