Healing Through Self-Love

We all have the power to heal from within through self-love.  The most important relationship that we have is the one with ourselves.  Throughout our busy lives, we tend to neglect ourselves and forget how important it is to take care of ourselves.  Nourishing ourselves physically and emotionally is one way that we can practice self-love.

Make it a priority to find time each day to do something simple, enjoyable and relaxing. You can listen to music, take a long relaxing bath, read, journal, take a walk outside in nature or meditate.

During this self-nourishing time, silent your cellphone and mentally let go of all your worries and things that need to be done.  Allow yourself to be in the moment. Be fully absorbed in your chosen activity.

Emotional self-care can be practiced through having awareness of thoughts and “self-talk.”  How do you talk to yourself?  Are your thoughts empowering and uplifting or do they weigh you down?  Choose thoughts that are uplifting for your spirit over thoughts that make you feel inadequate or unworthy. In choosing positive thoughts, we practice self-love at the mental emotional level.

Positive thinking can transform your life in a powerful way. Through practicing self-love and self-care, we allow healing to occur from within.  When we feel love from within, we are able to live from a place of joy and happiness.
