The Journey to Self Love…
Imagine growing up never receiving any hugs or kisses, or being told “I love you”.
You never saw your parents display any love or affection towards each other.
As a young child, the lack of love within your home may have caused you to supress your true emotions, to lack the ability to give or receive love in a healthy manner, and to develop a healthy relationship with your Self.
As you grow up, you may seek love outside of the home in the form of promiscuity, gang life, drug dependency, or other self-harming ways.
You may have even been raised in a religious environment that spoke of God’s unconditional Love, yet still, you failed to experience this kind of love from your parents, because they themselves didn’t experience it.
You don’t realize that the root cause of your issues as an adult is a Self Love Deficit. You weren’t taught how to love yourself, let alone how to love others.
You were taught to put others first, to put God first, and to put your own needs last. So slowly, your cup became empty as you poured into other people’s lives, without giving to yourself.
If (like myself) you can identify with the above story, the journey to Self Love may be a long and tedious one. You’re going to have to fill your meter from a Self Love Deficit, to filling your Self with Love. Where would you say you are right now on that meter? (I’d say I’m about half way)
True Love is unconditional.
Do you love yourself unconditionally? If not, how can you expect others to? When you give unconditional love to yourself, it will be reflected back to you.
I wish I’d known this years ago. Instead, I hated myself; I hated my looks, I hated my hair, I hated my skin, I hated my nose, I hated everything about me (apart from my teeth).
But I loved God.
How can I say I loved God when I didn’t love myself?
I wasn’t taught to recognize God within, I was taught to think of God as being outside of myself, somewhere beyond the clouds.
To truly put God first, is to recognize God within. When I say ‘God’, I’m referring to the Source of Love.
Yes, your Source of Love is within.
Come with me on a journey of Self discovery, the Journey to Self Love!
From 1st January 2019 I’ll be starting The 30 Day Self❤Love Challenge, and I’d LOVE you to join me!
To prepare, you will need;
▪A hand mirror
▪A drinking glass
▪A notebook/journal/recording device
▪Optional extra: rose quartz crystal
For 30 days, we will perform 3 easy daily tasks, and an end of week Self Love Treat, designed to help fill us up with Love, until we can give of our overflow instead of a Self Love Deficit – if you like, you can get started right away!
1) As soon as you wake up and before you go to sleep, look in your mirror and tell yourself “I LOVE YOU”. Look straight in your eyes; this may feel uncomfortable at first, but the more you do it, the easier it will get.
2) Pour some water in a glass, put your love intention into it and say “I LOVE YOU” into the water to program it before drinking it. This is based on Dr Emoto’s water experiment, and that we are made up of 70% water. (Click on the link below to The Self❤Love Retreat page to watch a short video about the effects of words on water)
3) Repeat a Positive Affirmation to your Self each day, such as “I love myself unconditionally”
We will end each week with a Self Care Treat that will help build Self Love. Imagine, the more people doing The 30 Day Self❤Love Challenge will not only raise individual frequencies, but will help raise the Love frequency of the whole planet!
