Self love

Beloved ones… Love yourself as never before. Give yourself the care, the attention, the nurturing and compassion you would give to your best friend or loved one.

Dearest, you may not have gotten the care you needed to thrive in earlier days, but you can supply and become your own ideal mother or father and give yourself what they could not. You can cease your hungry striving after an elusive “love” that is “out there” somewhere and discover it within your heart’s own capacity.

Build the muscle of self love as you give yourself kindness, as you pay attention to how you feel, as you accept your feelings without judgment, as you gradually wean yourself from critical self talk and mean expectations, as you simply allow yourself to be who you are- imperfect and human.

Beloved, in your imagination see yourself as your own loving parent, holding, rocking, loving, feeding, attending to the precious child you once were. Give yourself kindness, give yourself loving attention. Allow your younger self to feel your calming heartbeat, your loving arms, the security and trust of comfort and love freely given.
