Well this has been a very different Fourth Trimester so far lol.
Love you Mr Elliott! 😉
It’s been so interesting noticing how different I feel in my body (and about my body) post birth this time around.
I look at myself completely differently, I am in ✨ awe ✨ and I am finding that this is even impacting my relationship positively.
It took me a damn long time to love myself again first time around. Now I’m like, the six week mark can’t come quick enough 😉💋🔥.
‘OK Jess’, I hear you say, ‘You are only three weeks in. Don’t count your chickens yet!’
Ok fine. Yes it is early, but I can still talk to the difference this time around so far 🌻🦋😊.
One of the practices that I think is helping me is loving touch. Particularly holding my womb space and practicing deep breathing as well as mindfully noticing how clothes feel on my body. I have also been saying out loud in the mirror and journaling deeply respectful things about my body, thanking her for everything that she has done and doing my best to honour what she needs during the day.
Kimberly Ann Johnson in one of her The Fourth Trimester Cards says that ‘the sensual is a bridge back into the sexual. When we stay connected to pleasure, to intimacy with small things, to intimacy with ourselves, there is a shorter bridge to cross into intimacy with another.’
And I feel like I am resonating HARD with this message!
I am incredibly hopeful that this new filter in which I see myself continues. I’m sure Mitch won’t complain 😉.
Tell me something magnificent about your body? What do you love?
