We have been taught that loving yourself is wrong and selfish. We have been told that emotions are a sign of weakness, we always need to be wearing the strong mask to earn respect. So, we grow up disconnected from ourselves and our emotions. We have been taught to please everyone by accommodating them despite our own needs. We were programmed to fear things and feeling guilty if we loved ourselves. We have been afraid of how we are going to be seen and judged.
But I would say to you now love yourself is how you teach others to love you. To be the best person you can be, to have the ability to help and support those loved ones surrounding you. You need FIRST to love and care for yourself.
The idea of selfcare doesn’t always mean going to the spa and getting pampered. It means doing things you love without being worried and feeling guilty about how people might react. It can also mean trusting your heart and your intuition to guide you in the right direction in life. It means taking the time to listen to your heart and intuition often. It is the kind and compassionate way you speak to yourself, love yourself without judging yourself. Give yourself self-respect, a positive self-image and unconditional self-acceptance.
What will happen when you practice selflove?
You start to feel more secure as a person as you tapped into your inner being.
You start to believe in yourself more.
You start to trust yourself more.
You start attracting love into your life.
You start enjoying life without feeling guilty.
You start speaking your truth.
You start saying NO to others without being worried about their reaction.
You start enjoying your own company.
You start feeling you are not responsible for others’ happiness.
This is not just a practice for a month, it is an adaptation to a new lifestyle. It is your decision that you cannot live your life with guilt, fear and worry. It is in your hand to start healing despite the fear and the heartache.
Simply because you will feel better, you deserve better, you deserve to be happy and you deserve to be FREE.
I am one with God, with the Universe, the undivided one. I am one with my undivided love and undivided happiness.
Devine love, through me now dissolve all seeming obstacles and makes clear, easy and successful my way.
I am at peace with myself and with the whole world. I love everyone and everyone loves me. The flood gates of my good now open.
Love you all
