Live True To You
“We’re all keepers of our own heart and our mind and our body. Really, that’s the way it should be, that’s our sacred duty here in this life to tend to all those parts of self and to see if we can get them all operating in a harmonious way.”
Ever felt like you were running with self doubt? As if you're going through life, doing all the things you're meant to do, but on the inside you're not sure if you trust yourself, if you trust your body and if you can really "have your cake and eat it too".
No-one would've ever imagined that that was how Lorraine Moller felt in her long and very successful marathon career.
Lorraine Moller is a 4-time Olympian, Olympic bronze medalist, world track and field finalist, multiple Commonwealth Games track medalist, and winner of 16 major international marathons, including the Boston Marathon. She holds the distinction of being the only woman to have run all of the 20th century Olympic marathons for women.
And Lorraine is a very generous guest in this episode of the More Love Podcast. She tell's her powerful story of self acceptance (releasing and overcoming self doubt) and finding her true self. She's authentic, she's raw and I hope her story will move you as it did me.
During this interview Lorraine weaves her personal life story into deep and meaningful messages about unconditional self acceptance, mindfulness, healthy body-mind habits, positive self talk and understanding our whole self, even the importance of our emotional heart centre.
“I think my life as an athlete was really strengthening
that connection between body and mind and I think it’s so important.”
She talks openly about times when negative thoughts and negative emotions (unleashed by the inner critic) took hold, the consequences of those moments of self doubt and the impact they had on her mental health and overall wellbeing.
She tells us how desperate she became to outrun her age and how her personal growth came in an unexpected way, at an unexpected moment in an unexpected experience of unity and self compassion. It was the greatest gift.
That moment changed her life forever, freed her from all her self doubt, gave her inner peace and energised her to be her highest self.
Just by listening to her story you will gain insights on how to practise self-acceptance and how self-acceptance connects you with pure consciousness and your true self.
Lorraine discusses what she learnt from her 28 year marathon career about aligning the body and mind through the power of creative imagination, the power of experiencing the coherence and rhythm of our heart field and how she developed positive feedback loops for herself through body, mind connection, practices that helped her reach her full potential.
This episode runs beyond positive thoughts, positive affirmations and positive aspects to a place of higher self acceptance, a true self acceptance that comes through knowing the unity of pure consciousness. If you listen with an open heart you will feel it deep within your being.
It is a story of unconditional self acceptance.
