To Love Yourself…

Love.Heart in Hand-LOVE Thyself

Love thyself.

Love myself first.

I love me.

Look in the mirror. Can you say, “I love you” to yourself?

Seriously. Look in the mirror and try it. Don’t be shy. Say it like you mean it.

It took me a long time too. If you practice it enough, it becomes easier. You get more confident. You like yourself more.

You love yourself.

As women, we are taught to give, give, give and to constantly take care of others. It was hard for me to stop living that way. (Like it was a bad habit, it was hard to break.) When you give, you should be able to receive. I was always being told to be open to receive, especially by my open-minded and psychic friends. (Love you all.)

When we receive, we allow others to feel the joy of giving.

Last summer, I started using the mantra: I am open to receive.

When we receive, we allow others to feel the joy of giving.

Now that the summer solstice is upon us, I know it has been a year that I have consciously practiced receiving… and by doing so loving me.

It is really about loving yourself first. I know, it sounds selfish… but it truly is not. When you love yourself, then it will become easy for others to love you too.

You see, by being open to receive is just another way of being open to receiving love.

Yes, love for you … for your own self. Everyone wants that.

    This is such a simple and beautiful exercise. Thank you for putting this out there. I don’t know why self love is the most difficult to feel for so many of us, although our ego-centric lives are probably a good place to start that investigation! 🙂

    Love and light, Ali

      Hello Ali,
      It is one of the most difficult, yet most important thing we can do for ourselves on a spiritual basis. I read one place that when we say I Love You to ourselves and mean it, it resonates throughout the universe.
      Love and Light,
      Karen
