I could love myself more if…
…I lose weight
…I have the partner of my dreams
…I have more money in the bank
…I was 20 years younger
…I exercised more
What if you decide to start loving yourself more deeply right now?
What do you have to lose? Your judgements, fears, criticisms, and doubts haven’t prompted you to change so far. So what if you decide to follow these five simple steps to fall more deeply in love with yourself?
What if you looked in the mirror and actually liked what you saw?
What if you could be gentle with yourself even when you foul up?
What if you felt a new sense of loving kindness and compassion for yourself, even when things weren’t going so well in your life?
In this week’s Beyond Beliefs I take you through five simple steps to rewire your mind, create new dialogues, and enable you to fall more deeply in love with yourself, body, mind and soul.
Isn’t ‘Self-Love’ a form of narcissism or arrogance?
This is a question I hear often. The answer is simple – No. I’m speaking about the kind of acceptance, compassion, and loving kindness that you express for lots of people in your life, but that you don’t necessarily apply to yourself. I’m not suggesting that you are better than anyone else (how could you be, we are all one). I am inviting you to define your own sense of self, and to accept who and how you are at the deepest level. I’m inviting you to release self-judgement, self-criticism, and self-loathing. Most of all, I’m inviting you to remember your divine spark, reconnect to it, and fall deeply in love with yourself even in your most human moments.
Live from the overflow
If a well dries up it cannot quench anyone’s thirst. A well that is full gives from it’s fullness without ever becoming depleted. When you fill yourself with self-acceptance, self-worth, and self-love from the inside out, you are giving from the overflow. When you have truly embraced yourself as being worthy and deserving of your own loving kindness, compassion, and acceptance nothing outside of you can take those feelings away for very long. Yes, you may still have a button pressed. Yes, you may still have moments of doubt and fear. What changes is that they are rare and short lived. You have tools that enable you to get back to the essence of your being–Love.

You are worthy and deserving of your own love and compassion. You weren’t born judging and criticising yourself. You are the love intelligence of the universe expressing in your unique, amazing body suitcase to live fully and love deeply. It starts with you.
Here’s an excerpt from my book, Igniting Success Beyond Beliefs, to remind you of your truth:
“Just in case no one has ever told you before, here is the truth about you:
You are magnificent, you are beautiful, you are powerful, you are capable, you are brilliant and absolutely gorgeous. Your brain is just as powerful as everyone else’s; you can achieve anything you want to. You are here, in your perfect, unique physical body suitcase to have fun, grow and thrive. Your presence on this planet is not some random accident, it is part of the fullness of Life. You are the place where the Infinite One becomes fully expressed in this finite world and you complete Creation. You are a radiant beacon of light and you are here to shine. If you weren’t here, Life would be incomplete and the world a little dimmer.
This is true no matter what you have done or had done to you in your life. It doesn’t matter if you can believe it about yourself or not, it is still true, and I hold that knowing for you until you awaken to it yourself.”
Happy Valentines Day. All my love always and all ways, Juliet
