Two of the issues the main character in my novel ‘Journey of a Sister‘ battled with, were to do with Self Love and Self worth.
She believed that because she had two young children, she wasn’t ‘good enough’ for Charles. Do you have the ‘not good enough’ program running in your subconscious mind?
Feelings of being unworthy, not deserving, or not good enough, will make you sabotage your success in relationships, health, business and finances – not necessarily all at once, but one or the other. For instance, you might be a great business woman, but lacking in the area of your relationships. Or you might be good with money, but lacking in the area of your health.
Suzanne, the main character, had to go really deep within her Self to get to the root cause of her issues, in order to heal.
But in today’s society there are so many distractions, we rarely take the time to shut off the outside world to connect with our true, inner Self.
To truly Love yourself, is to know your Self, and you can only truly know your Self when you are connected with your Source!
I have designed The Self Love Retreat to cater to your personal needs, as well as a group. It will help you connect with your Source from within, to help you identify any issues you may have that are preventing your progress in any area, so you can begin the process of Self-healing.
I will be sharing some of the techniques that have helped raise my confidence and self-esteem, eradicate a poor Self-image, unblock my creativity, and connect with my Source, in order to find my Purpose, and for guidance on the necessary steps to fulfill it.
The Self Love Retreat isn’t just about pampering your outer self (although that’s included!) it will help you take ‘Time Out’ to go deep within, and get clear on the steps you should be taking in life, instead of wandering through life aimlessly. It will involve:
- Spending time in ‘the Silence’
- Mirror Work and Affirmations
- Healthy eating
- Exercise and relaxation
- 5 daily workshops: ‘Who I Am’, ‘Loving ME from Within’, ‘Self Healing Through Forgiveness’, Colour Therapy, Sensuality
- A day of Pampering (massage, manicure/pedicure, facial)
Self Love was something I had to learn; I grew up in a love-less home, and was led to believe as a child that I was ‘no good’, ‘ugly’, ‘didn’t deserve it’ (anything I wanted), and that anything I did wasn’t ‘good enough’. On top of that, my Christian programming led me to believe that I was born in sin, and that without Christ I was ‘unworthy’, and a ‘poor, wretched sinner’! I grew up believing I didn’t deserve the good things that I actually wanted (especially my relationships), so I kept sabotaging myself when anything good came my way. Now, I’ve learned to love my Self, put my Self first, and accept when good things come to me!
If you have issues with Self Love or Self worth, or just want to spend some time connecting with your Source from within, The Self Love Retreat is right for YOU!
