The Gift of Self-Love XOXO

135The love of self is not only vital to your well-being but it is powerful in your life’s creations. Everything starts with you ~ with your Inner Life ~ your Inner Life IS you and it is pure unconditional Love. You are the creator of your own reality.  When you create from Love ~ your Inner Life, what do you think the outcome will be?  The outcome will be everything you ever dreamed of ~ true happiness, a healthy body & mind, financial success, overflowing abundance and much more!

The Secret: The Magic by Rhonda Byrne

There are too many people who suffer from the lack of self-love. They live unhealthy and unhappy lives because somewhere along the line they came to believe they were not worthy of the life they really wanted.  Regardless of where the lack of self-love originated from, everyone deserves their heart’s desires. Everyone deserves to love themselves, to give love, and to receive love.

Do you really believe you chose to come into this physical experience to endure any type of emotional pain and live without love?  No, you did not.  None of us did. With this in mind, would you not want everything to start from a place of love?  

137I know it is our natural instinct to want to go back to the past to try to figure out how we came to believe we were unworthy, but it truly is not necessary.  Going back does not change anything.  All it does is create more pain and suffering because you are not living in the here and now.  

Nothing needs to be understood in order to move forward and love yourself.  All that matters is how you want to feel, what you want to create, and how you want the rest of your life to unfold.  Once you get back in tune with your Inner Life you will easily begin to move into a place of true, unconditional love.  It will be then, that the suffering will end.

Love Yourself: The Key to Transforming Your Life by Embrosewyn Tazkuvel

Loving one’s self is not always easy, for there may be years upon years of negative beliefs built up inside you, but don’t let that stop you.  You are worth the effort.  Once you experience even the slightest difference in how you feel, you are going to want more and more love and before you know it, your life will change in every way possible.  You will feel and be healthier and happier. You will find appreciation for who you are and experience the joys of what life really has to offer.

When you love yourself unconditionally you make yourself your number one priority. You nurture and care for yourself as you would a newborn.  You give to yourself the things YOU need.  The things that will make you feel good and make you happy.  You are kind, gentle, and loving to yourself.  When you make a mistake, you find compassion and forgive yourself. You laugh and have fun.  You care for your body and mind, only ingesting what is good for you. You accept and love yourself for exactly who you once were, who you are today, and who you are becoming.  

136Choosing ME Before WE: Every Woman’s Guide to Life and Love by Christine Arylo

Love yourself enough to be who you really want to be.  Follow your own heart.  Do what inspires you, delights you, and enlightens you.  Be bright, light and full of shine.  

Surround yourself with the people who make you feel alive and add to your experience, not take away from it.  And remember…the only opinion of yourself that matters is your own.  You do NOT need anyone else’s opinion. You are pure perfection.  You were created THROUGH LOVE and so YOU ARE LOVE.  This can NEVER be taken away from you.  It is a part of who you really are!  You ARE and will ALWAYS be LOVE and LOVED – completely, wholly and unconditionally!

Filling Your Life’s Voids

37A void is “totally lacking in something”.  A healthy void is one that is temporary; it is felt but it does not turn your life upside down.  You acknowledge and accept it for what it is and move on.  It is when the void is not temporary that it becomes unhealthy.  A void can come from anything that leaves you feeling empty.  It does not necessarily have to be a major life event such as the loss of a loved one.  It could be something as “simple” as cutting up all your credit cards.  And trust me that can leave a hole inside of you the size of Wal-Mart!

It is that feeling of emptiness which often leads to destructive behaviors such as excessive drinking, drug abuse, unhealthy relationships, or over eating.  Many people do not know how to live with the feeling of the void.  It is not necessarily what caused the void, but the feeling of it. The comfort you once had from the thing that caused the void is now gone, leaving you feeling totally exposed as if you do not know what to do with yourself anymore.  This is when you must think carefully as to what you are going to fill your void with.  The last thing you want to do is fill it with something that will numb you from what you don’t want to feel.

If you are experiencing a temporary, healthy void, fill it with happy things.  Take a trip to the beach or mountains, take a walk, go bowling with friends, exercise, watch good feeling movies, play with your cat or dog, do something for someone you love.  Do whatever makes you happy without it being something that could lead to destructive behavior. Before you know it, your temporary void is gone!

21Now, on the other hand, if you, on a regular basis, feel a constant void, feel “empty” or feel the urge to “fill yourself up” with something or someone, more than likely the only thing that is missing from your life is you.  Too often we replace the feelings we have about ourselves with things in an effort to make us feel better.  However, it eventually catches up to us and before you know it, nothing makes us feel good.  Soon we are left with ourselves, and so you ask, “what do I do now”.  What you do now is love yourself unconditionally without judgment or criticism.  You ARE perfect exactly as you are.  You do not need things to give you comfort or to make you feel better.  You can do both all on your own.  Once you begin to truly love and accept yourself for who you are you will find those little voids closing themselves up.  Yes, they may still come from time to time but they will be healthy and temporary.

If you are having the urge to fill a void right now, be honest and ask yourself, “is the void I am trying to fill really from the loss of something or is it from trying to avoid myself?”
