I met a very special lady in the “healing profession”, and her words branded me for life. “If everyone could just learn to love themselves to pieces“. They say love is one of life’s greatest medicines. And it is a medicine we need to administer to ourselves – generously.
I believe that loving ourselves is foundational to living life. When we love ourselves, we take greater care of ourselves, and make clearer decisions that propel our highest good. Some people don’t feel worthy of love and goodness, and consistently sabotage themselves. If you’re like most people you haven’t practiced giving yourself “unconditional love”.
Try this. Clear your mind and relax, you may even lie on the floor. Imagine yourself being bathed in unconditional love. Let those feelings penetrate every cell in your body, from your head to your toes. Let the feeling expand and grow with every breath, until you are surrounded by ten inches of unconditional love. Let it all in. It feels good, doesn’t it?
I used to think, “of course I love myself”. Then I did this exercise, it changed my life. I didn’t realize I could give myself that “warm, wonderful feeling” anytime I chose to focus on it. And loving ourselves is a powerful energy with enormous benefits!!! The more YOU give LOVE to yourself, the more you will attract it in your life.
Take 5 minutes each day to connect with this feeling of “unconditional loving”. For most of us, it’s an unused muscle that will need conditioning. It may feel uncomfortable at first, and I challenge you to stick with it. It’ll impact your self-esteem, you’ll feel more loving and generous, and you’ll begin to attract more wonderful things into your life. Because, after all – YOU do deserve it. Go for it!
