Body Prayer


My dear body
It took me more than 40 years to finally love you back
I still remember that moment in dance practice on Corfu
When my love for you swept like a wave
Through all of you for the first time

I admit that since then our relationship
Still wasn’t easy and a continous honeymoon
I fell into old patterns of controlling you
Judging you, fixing you, pushing you

Yesterday night lying in bed with you
I felt so completely peaceful and H.O.M.E. in you
No spiritual peak experience, no ecstatic bliss
More a silent and deep recognition of what is

Today I want to consciously set a mark:
I declare with all my heart (which is your heart)
I commit to be
a reliable loving caring respectful partner for you
as you are
a reliable loving loyal devotional partner for me
I deeply honor our life long relationship

May our relationship be a seed of peace in the world
May our relationship be a lighthouse of respect
For my daughter whom you carried inside you for 9 months
May our relationship be a happy living example
How to unhook from mainstream media brain washing
How to unhook from spiritual brain washing
On how a female body should look like and be like

My dear body
I am sorry for every single instance of oppression and hate
Please forgive me for not answering your innocent love
I thank you for your loyal patience all these years
I love you so much – just as you are

My dear body
I am here & you are OK. ❤ ❤ ❤

  1. Dearest Uli,This is the first thing I read this morning and I melted profoundly as I read your sacred words. So beautiful is your prayer. So beautiful is the photo of you. So inspiring for me. I am going to print it now and carry it with me today, reading it often, holding the sacredness close. Holding you close.With deep gratitude and love, Martha

  2. Dear Uli, happy beauty amongst the flowers, thank you for your lovely prayer!
    I speak with my body every day ~ greet the temple of my soul with words as well as with a smile ☺
    Some weeks ago I have been deeply hurt by repeated comments of a man, whom I was in love with,
    on the change of my body due to my menopause ~
    I still love the temple of my soul ~ as it looks like ~ and I am grateful for this present!
    May more and more girls and women unhook from brainwashing ~
    and love their bodies ~ and take lovely care for them ~ and hug themselves ~
    Many blessings *******

    • Dear Brigid, thank you for your sharing! ❤ How beautiful to read your daily practice. I hope that the hurtful comments didn't leave wounds. It's so good to feel you hip to hip in the unhooking! ❤ ❤ Together in this commitment, Uli
