The journey of discovering self-love, continues for a life time. I really only began the observance and connection with my true self-a few years ago. I understood the concept, but didn't know what it meant for me. On that journey, I learned to connect with myself through tapping into my intuition and invoking it to be part of my day. Engaging my intuition and inner voice (also the voice of God inside of you), helps you to be honest with yourself and respect yourself.
In this next phase of growing my self-love, I've begun to pray and practice applying the L.A.W.S. of self-love.
Self-Love. This is the base and core understanding of loving yourself. Tell yourself daily. Say it out loud, "I love you___. I really, really love you!" You many think it's corny, but it's powerful.
Self-Acceptance. Love and accept yourself exactly the way you are. This is a process more than a one time decision so keep getting acquainted with yourself and love every part of you.
Self-Worth. Understand that you are worthy and deserving of all your deepest and purest desires. Meditate on it and inscribe your worthiness on your heart.
Self-Esteem. Self-esteem is the result of all of the above. So, if you love yourself, accept yourself, and understand your worth and value, then you will continue to grow a healthy self-esteem, not to be confused with ego.
I hope you will practice the L.A.W.S. of self-love with me today because you can!
