My Best Friend

I wake up with you every day. You greet me with a smile and with love. Sometimes I return the greeting, other times I curse at you for waking me up so early.

We spend a lot of time together; walking, reading, practicing yoga, playing, dancing, spending time with the kids, cooking, cleaning; living daily life.

I love being out in nature with you. You glow and have a heavenly way about you when you are in the elements.

We go out to eat, drink tea and coffee, listen to music and laugh. We sit and lounge on the sofa, doing nothing and at times that is the best feeling in the world.

You understand me and give me guidance on what I really need to hear, even if I don’t want to hear it.

Sometimes you have aches and pains, it makes me feel bad that I can’t take them away for you. Even through the discomfort you still carry me through each day and love me no matter what.

You support me, you challenge me, you push me, you irritate me. You are strong, you are graceful, you are present, you are loving and kind.

We have been through major struggles, challenges, and some pretty awful times, but we made it through and are healthier, stronger, and wiser because of it.

You tell me when I’m not listening and potentially creating more suffering for myself. I may not receive it well, and as much as I don’t want to admit it at times, you are usually right. Okay, almost always right.

You let me know when I need to rest, although I don’t always listen to you. You don’t like that at all.

You help me to see how I carry the past into the present and how I worry about what has not happened yet. You continually give me the gift of the present moment.

You create space for me to be me and allow me the grace to move beyond this plane of existence to experience a deeper connection to Oneness.

You sleep peacefully at night, calmly drifting off into a deep sleep.

You are my best friend. I love you.

You are my body; my greatest vehicle to experience the wonders of life. You are my greatest ally and my biggest supporter.

I am in deep appreciation for all that you do for me everyday. Without you I would not be able to touch, to feel, to see, to hear, to taste, to experience the pleasures of a hug, a kiss, the wind, the sun, the Earth’s touch on my bare feet, the snuggle of my kids, the love from my husband, the laughter of my children, the vibrations of music, the sights of life that I am given each day.

Dear Body,

I love you. I thank you for all you have done for me the past 35 years.

I thank you for always being here for me and for continuously showing up. You are a powerful, amazing source of Divine wisdom.

I bow to your greatness, your strength, your clarity, and your guidance.

You hold within you the sacred space of the light of the Divine, and I appreciate you keeping me so carefully safe and loved.

I promise to keep you clean, to protect you, to nourish you, to listen to you, and to move you every day.

I’m sorry for the bullying of the past verbally, and physically. Please forgive me. That was never about you.

Let’s join together and create this sacred Union to travel through this journey of life with compassion and love. That is my promise to you.

In gratitude,
