You're on this healing journey. You're a coach, healer, energy worker, creator, space holder, guide, ... And now you feel that you're done with being a creature of habit. Done with going through motions, allowing time to pass by.
You realize that to create a life filled with purpose, passion and growth, asking yourself how much you love yourself could be one of the most fundamental questions you ask yourself throughout your life.
And it's not one of those questions that is asked once and that's that. You've won. Nope. It's one of those questions that is good to have as your health check in both the good and not so good times of life. Holding space for yourself and then the other.
So you are not only ready to stop complying with external pressures but you have been. Clear that in your times of doubt that you need to slow down. Enough to move from being with the voices creating so much noise in your head to watching them. To more flowing stillness.
But how. You know how. But life. And life just keeps on happening.
It's time to get unstuck, to listen to that perpetual longing that resides deep within you.
But when it gets uncomfortable, when it gets tough, when the doubts start to creep in. Any excuse makes you stop. You know your chime.
Maybe you've already done enough for now, cause this feeling is just too hard. You need time. It needs time.
Or maybe it's just too scary cause you don't know when it's going to stop, where it's going to end. Or who will still be around.
Chugging forward completely unaware of the significance each choice we make, or decision we act upon, has on us. Knowing that indecision is a decision too.
When we do not love or accept ourselves enough to start living life from deep truth and essence, it can leave you blind to the true power of choice that each individual holds, oblivious to what you are truly accepting and inviting into your life, and how you impact the world.
The world that you create for yourself.
In order to answer whether or not you truly love yourself, bring your complete attention to yourself. Your full self. Not just the mind. The chatter.
Get in tune with your inner voice, that also orchestrates waves of sensation throughout your body. A full experience of listening, so you don't get stuck in the story. The more aware you become, the more you will realize how completely and amazingly unique you are. How, in the entire history of mankind, no other human being has been or will ever be just like you. You are the sum of all of your personal experiences, mixed with the impact of culture, society, educators, media, religion, upbringing, language…etc.
No one has lived life in your shoes, no one else knows ‘best’.
Self-acceptance of your inner uniqueness, gives insight that each of us is so completely individual and special in our own way, which shifts and broadens our perspective of how you see yourself and your life.
Once you truly start to accept yourself, you know that you absolutely, without a doubt, cannot be anyone else but you. It creates clarity, and serves as the ultimate guide in navigating life. Once your amazing individuality is embraced, and celebrated in love, you will clearly see how it is the pillar of success, fulfillment, and ultimately our own happiness.
When you learn to love and appreciate yourself, you open up to a more conscious way of living in alignment with your true self – creating unimaginable creativity. And when you live true to it, the more you will thrive. You will feel an inner sense – intuition – grow, providing the feedback you need to guide yourself every step of the way. Living from your inner knowing, grounded in you.
Life is a journey which provides tools, and feedback, so you can learn, transform, and cultivate the grounds to create your own safety and freedom within. And all you have to do is take the time to love yourself. Taking responsibility for educating yourself about yourself, so you can feed your very essence with what it needs to shine. This is your life. Your unique existence in the world. Isn't it time to love you?!
