Self Love

You’ve heard the old adage of, “You can’t love anyone else unless you love yourself.”  Well, it’s true.  People that truly love themselves have a special glow about them. It’s kind of like they know a fun secret.  They have a way of being that beacons and invites and they attract wonderful experiences and people. I find myself drawn to them and wanting to be in their presence.

What is Self Love?  How do I know if I have it or not?

  • It’s having patience and grace with yourself. NO negative self talk.  Whenever a negative thought about yourself comes up, re-frame it to a learning or “up until now, I did that.”  Self love is where creativity comes from.

  • Giving yourself space for making mistakes.  We are spiritual beings having human experiences on this planet.  Thus, we will do human things.  Everything we do or say is a possibility for a learning experience...there are no accidents. Forgiveness gets the ego out of the way so we can love and create.

  • Honoring your mind body and spirit by taking care of each of them. Live in the fulfillment of increase.  Strive for better consciousness, a healthy body and expanding spirit. Your body is your temple for love.

When you have the above distinctions for loving yourself, THEN you can truly love others with the feeling of patience, grace, forgiveness and honor.  I know how I feel when I give and receive love...and I LOVE it.

Check in with yourself and notice the self talk....just notice.
