How To Love Myself- Part Two

Written by Gabi on . Posted in Buddhism, Energy, Light, & Self-Healing

I went from hating to blaming to tolerating myself.

And then, from forgiving (somewhat) to partially accepting to liking myself.

And then, from totally forgiving myself, to….. (I once was blind, but now I see…) loving myself!

And now, it’s problematic. Out of control. I am madly, passionately in love with me; and I can’t think of almost anything that could change that. I can be a total bitch to my husband AND kids (ask them); be in my own darkest misery; be wrong, evil, lazy, immoral, selfish, irresponsible; and yup, I’m still wholly adoring myself to the core. Just give me a mirror and watch me make out! It wasn’t always this pretty. Welcome to Part 2 of this ‘how to’ series.

Basking In My Own Light- My Addiction- Part 6

As I work on rebuilding myself, on recreating the ‘who I am’ without some strong external influence supporting that; I find I need help. I need something to inspire my soul, to push me forward when I feel like sinking down between the rocks of despair. That, exactly that, is what we are meant to do, over and over and over again in our lives. We are meant to redefine, rediscover, rebirth ourselves. We are not meant to grasp to those roles, accomplishments, relationships that define who we are. We are meant to go faaaar out of our comfort zone and be naked, again, figuring out who we are now, and again now, and again now- new every minute. And so, this process has left me naked, but seeking. Here is the light that I am creating, for me, naked, to bask in. They inspire, uplift, and direct me to exactly the direction (I think) I am meant to follow.

How To Love Myself- Part 1

Louis Hay says that all humans suffer from not loving themselves and guilt. What a shame that that is what we all share: a mountain of barriers to loving ourselves and a few pounds of guilt. I worked with a brilliant, beautiful young soul this week who does not love herself. She does not. She has lots of reasons why. She justifies well. “You know, I, I, I guess it’s just a funny situation,” she says. And so, I dedicated  Monday’s Clean Your Soul class to love. This four-part series looks at four magnificent quotes and some marvelously deep and moving conversational points to guide us to our own deep, light-ful, maternal love. Enjoy!

“All day I think about it, then at night I say it. Where did I come from, and what am I supposed to be doing? I have no idea. My soul is from elsewhere, I’m sure of that, and I intend to end up there.”  -Rumi
