Hi everyone! Welcome back to the first episode of Season 2 of the Cam Kashani show!
Today, with everything happening in the world right now, I felt really called to speak about BODY AUTONOMY. This conversation might be difficult for some of you, and that’s okay. I may even lose some of you, and that's okay too. But before I start, I want to ask that you try to listen to this episode all the way through because if you are triggered, that could reveal something deeper about yourself that needs to be healed. <3
"Speak your truth, even if your voice shakes."
My truth is my truth, and it’s meant to spoken. Just like yours.
Body autonomy. What does that mean?
Body autonomy means I get to govern my body, decide what goes inside my body, what it does, where it goes.
My body, my choice. My body, my domain.
Now I have spent most of my life healing my relationship with my body, learning to love my body, healing body shame, rebuilding my relationship with myself, learning to speak my truth, and connecting to my inner Sacred Queen.
And one thing that is absolute for me now is that no one gets to tell me what goes inside my body. No human, organization, or government gets to make decisions for MY BODY.
So I am here to reflect back to you now, that if you are allowing a forced mandate to make a choice for you, what else are you allowing in your life that you have not necessarily chosen?
When were we conditioned to forget our body autonomy? When were we taught that our bodies are not our own? When were we told that we don't have the power to choose what goes inside our bodies?
Now, don’t get me wrong, I am not against the shot. I am only against being told what goes inside me, without my full consent. If you feel it's best for you to get it, by all means please do so. Just do so by choice.
I am also not here to tell you what to do; I’m here to remind you that you have the power to decide.
Many of us, women in particular, are raised to be quiet and unassuming. We are taught not to ask questions or stir the pot and to avoid conflict. And I used to be that way too. I used to avoid conflict at all costs -- especially mySelf. But now, it's different. I'm different. I've grown, I've healed, and I've learned to EMBRACE my power, not shy away from it. And if staying quiet and not disrupting the peace means giving up my freedom and my body’s basic rights, I don’t want peace. I want my power and my freedom.
I know many of you are in the same boat as me but are rolling with the status quo to avoid rocking the boat in some way shape or form. I see you. I feel you. I was you.
It is so much easier to just stay quiet and go along with it all. But it is so much more authentic to the core of who we are to stand in our God-given power and say: My body, my domain, I decide.
I will leave you with this invitation:
Does your power trigger you? Does your freedom trigger you? If so, I invite you to follow the line of energy and heal that trigger, so that you can allow yourSelf to revel in the glory of authentic empowerment and freedom in your own body.
Sending you all love,
