Sun Your Stomach

in Welcome to my blog!
I was lying by the pool enjoying the sun hitting my body. I sun myself not to tan, but to clean out my chakras, my aura plus the health benefits. An eight month pregnant woman walked by in a bikini. I thought how great to have that freedom. When I was pregnant fourteen years ago, exposing the bare baby bump in public was not acceptable or ok. In fact, it was downright indecent. I would never have considered wearing a bikini! However, shortly after my last son was born, the pregnant celebrity moms made it popular to show off the naked baby belly. Thank goodness for their desire to be free and healthy! Exposing our pregnant bellies is not only good for our energy; the baby in there thrives on it!

We live in a modern world bombarded with paranoid messages about how dangerous the sun is. We should remember that the ancient yogis and the people of many wise cultures knew how to use the sun to heal all kinds of illnesses and bring about radiant health. Moderate amounts of sun exposure is key. I'm not recommending to bring back the Baby Oil or Bain De Soleil days, but we do tend to over use Sunblock lotions. They give some protection from long exposure, but they also prevent the sun's ultra violet rays from creating Vitamin D in our bodies. That Vitamin D is essential for many functions. We are making a whole generation Vitamin D deficient by using too much sunblock and being afraid of the sun.

On the other side of me was a woman maybe ten years older than I, who was sunning herself in a full one-piece bathing suit. Her husband was lying next to her. His big belly was out and proud while hers was covered. Men don't seem to have a problem exposing their stomachs no matter how big they are. When a woman gets a tummy, however, she is quick to cover it. I felt a little sad for the woman. Her body just looked so uncomfortable, like it couldn't breathe. Impossible in that confining and uncomfortable nylon suit. I wanted to tell her to get a bikini. She would be far better off exposing her belly to the sun and getting all the healing benefits. Her husband was sure getting them!

Exposing our bellies to sun helps us lose excess fat and aids digestion. The ultra violet rays that make Vitamin D are just one frequency of light; there are eight others, including infrared and the seven spectrums of visible light. Each one has its own unique healing power!  If your belly hasn't seen the sun since the Seventies, start with small doses and work your way up, but find a way to bare your stomach sun while it's still summer. It's good for the mind, body and your spirit! Don't be afraid to lay out naked is you have the proper space. There's nothing really to hide, and it makes you radiant from head to toe!
