I know right, what sort of person has a passionate love affair...with themselves?
I will tell you who, someone who has understood the great benefits of self love that's who. Someone who has learnt to back themselves.
When we are in the process of change or experiencing an awakening, it can bring up allsorts of fear and insecurities and a person can feel very vulnerable or even unsafe.
If you are anything like me, and after working with many clients now, most of us are the same, you may go into a spiral of negative self talk and even begin to have a negative impact on those that we love. This is often due to feelings of loosing control.
It seems crazy that we would hurt ourselves and those that we love simply because we feel insecure and vulnerable doesn't it?
Think of an animal who is under attack or feeling a great threat. They will often attack in self defence. So when you think about it, it's not so crazy is it?
The secret is being able to identify that we feel this way and begin to self regulate.
So how do we do this?
Simply by allowing ourselves to become aware of the feelings in our bodies firstly. When we catch ourselves feeling angry, uptight, anxious we can start by saying, " It's ok beautiful, you've got this" or " You know what honey, the universe will provide, everyone loves you and more so, you love you." You might take yourself out for dinner, to a movie or coffee or perhaps by yourself some lingerie, if that's your thing? Perhaps you might take yourself to the beach, on a walk or if you are an adrenaline junkie you might take yourself to jump out of an aeroplane. You could pack a picnic and go to your favourite spot with your favourite book.
Begin by treating yourself how you would treat someone you love dearly and would want to support.
It might feel unusual at first but I'm telling you right now, the energy will shift totally in your body from tight and rigid to relaxed and calm. From this place great improvements are possible.
There are many "nay sayers" in our world and some will even be in your world. I bet you can think of at least one person who has put you down or criticized you in some way.
Don't join their team, back yourself and have a wild love affair with you. It will be the most passionate and important affair you'll ever have.
