In this episode, we explore what it means to live out our faith in an embodied way, and how we can find freedom in our physical bodies. Our guest, Alisa Keeton, founder of Revelation Wellness, shares her insights and strategies for cultivating a healthy and positive relationship with our bodies.
Our bodies are a gift from God and an integral part of our spiritual journey. By viewing our faith walk as an embodied experience, we can begin to embrace our bodies and develop a more positive relationship with ourselves.
Being whole and holy involves nurturing our spiritual, emotional, and physical well-being. When we prioritize bringing all three aspects of ourselves to the Lord, we can experience greater wholeness and connection with God.
Our physical bodies are not separate from our spiritual selves. In fact, God has designed us to experience goodness and wholeness in both our physical and spiritual selves.
Negative thoughts and emotions can impact our physical well-being. To shake these feelings, we can practice self-care, exercise, and meditation on the Word, and intentionally focus on gratitude.
Finding freedom in our bodies is a journey, and it’s okay to be in the tension between where we are now and where we hope to be. By embracing the process and practicing self-compassion, we can move towards greater freedom and wholeness.
Total body freedom means embracing our bodies as they are, without shame or judgment. It means practicing self-care, self-compassion, and gratitude, and intentionally cultivating a positive relationship with ourselves.
We can practice small habits and actions every day that prioritize our physical well-being, such as drinking enough water, getting enough sleep, and eating nourishing foods. By stewarding our bodies well, we can experience greater physical and emotional health.
Alisa shares how Revelation Wellness offers resources and tools for integrating faith and fitness. The app provides access to a wide range of workouts and meditations that help us connect with our bodies and with God.
