Hi Dive Goddess
Body image is passed down generation to generation. If it’s positive fantastic. However research shows that it isn’t so positive.
In today’s society we are seeing girls getting younger and younger with body image issues. It truly is sad.
Where are these young girls learning there is something wrong with their bodies? Kids do not learn from being told. They learn by what they see. Yes there is plenty of media portraying women as unrealistic. The models don’t even look that way in real life.
The way kids really learn is by what happens at home. How their parents accept or do not accept their own bodies.
Take a moment and think back to when you where a very young girl.... I highly recommend journaling your answers.
- How did your mum speak of her body or others women’s bodies?
- How did your dad speak of your mums body or others women’s bodies?
- What did you hear and see as a child about women and their bodies?
- When sitting with these questions what is coming up for you? What feelings are coming up?
My intention with these questions is for you to become aware of how our girls pick up on how we see our bodies and take it on as their own.
Therefore more journaling:
- How do you see your body?
- How do you feel about your body?
- What do you say about your body?
- Does your child copy what you do and say about your body?
I’m going to get straight to the point. If you want your daughter and even your son to have great body image and be confident in their body, no matter what you say it’s going to have minimal impact. However how you act and say about your body is going to have massive impact on them.
The change starts with you!!! When you start embracing and loving your body just as it is in this present moment and activate your goddess body confidence your children will do the same. With kids it’s monkey see, monkey do!!
Let’s start creating a generation of women who have goddess body confidence!!! You can make this happen by making the change.
If you want to make a change, feel amazing, have energy, have motivation just as your body is in this present moment, join me in our free 5 Day Confidence Activation
With this round we have a NEW Soul eBook to help, guide and support you on this journey.

Hello Gorgeous Goddess
Do you second guess yourself?
Do you miss amazing opportunities because you are too busy second guessing yourself?
Continually second guessing yourself keeps you small and dimes your light. It comes from not believing in you, your gifts, abilities and your power.
Where does it come from?
It comes from the crap people said to you as a child.
The thing is the things that you where told as a child, actually come from what they too where told as a child. It is a vicious cycle that has been passed down from generation to generation. However now you have the power to change this. Do you want to pass this on to your children?
Confidence is about believing in you, your power, your abilities and gifts. It means you will give something a go. Even though you may not succeed the first, second or third or hundredth time, you try. Confidence does not mean you give it a go and it works perfectly the first time. It means you believe in you to try.
I believe there is no such things as not succeeding, its learning. If it doesn't work the first time, look at the experience and ask yourself “what can l learn from that?”. No matter the outcome each time you will learn something new. You grow and learn, as we are meant to as humans.
When it comes to giving something a go next time, check in with you. How do you feel about it? If an old limiting belief comes up about not being able to do it, ask “where does this belief come from?”. If it comes from something someone told you then, let it go. It isn't your belief, it is theirs. Focus on your beliefs of you.
What are your beliefs of you???
Get a pen and paper
Draw a line down the middle.
On the left side, write down all the beliefs of you.
Once done, then on the right side write where did they come from. Was it a parent, sibling teacher, etc.
When done, did you find any of your own beliefs about you?
If not that is ok. When l did this many years ago, l was shocked to learn none of my beliefs about me where actually from me. They came from everyone else.
I then begun the inner journey of me and what my beliefs of me are.
Start a list of your beliefs about you. This list may take time to build, baby steps. Have fun getting to know you.
Here are some questions to get you started on your life:
Here is some of my beliefs about me:
Time to believe in you from your perspective, not others. Time to clear away beliefs about you that aren't from you.
You have got this. I believe in you!!

Hello Gorgeous Goddess
Where you ever told as a child:
Firstly if you have had any of this or other things said to you l want to say “l am sorry you have had this happen. Sending you loads of love and healing”.
Even though l am sending you love and healing, there is something else l want to do for you. I want to help guide and support you in activating your confidence. I want to see you shine!!
To look good, is to FEEL good. It has nothing to do with your size or shape at all. It has everything to do with what is on the inside. How you feel about you, how you see you. Confidence is a feeling.
What you were told as a child was terrible, however it was other peoples beliefs and perceptions. Even though they said them to you, what they where doing was expressing their own insecurities and beliefs about them. It really had nothing to do with you. Being a child and not knowing any differently, you took it on as truth. Now you are an adult you can clear others beliefs from you, about you and create your own beliefs about you.
Your body size and shape does not define you. What others think about you is none of your business. It comes down to what do you think and feel about you.
In a quite place look at your body. Look at each body part and what are you grateful for that part.
Going to be vulnerable and share some of my list.
I have chunky thighs. I am grateful my legs allow me to walk
My belly sticks out and covered in stretch marks. I am grateful to carry my four children
My breasts aren't like they use to be. I am grateful they fed my babies
I am grateful that even though in my early years l abused my body (lack of exercise, crappy food) that it supports me and allows me to live.
I am grateful my nails grow like weeds and are strong.
What are you grateful that your body has and does do for you?
Then every time you look at your body, find what you are grateful for.
How you choose to see your body image is up to you. You can continue to take on others beliefs of you as your own, however this will continue to keep your confidence levels low OR you can choose to be grateful for your body and take on your OWN beliefs of your body as your truth, which will activate your confidence.
What do you choose?
Blessings & Love
