Love is your true nature. Everything else is just your journey back to it.
I feel very strongly that a lack of self-love is responsible for many of the world's problems but closer to home is equally responsible for many of people's struggles.
And people have become programmed to think self-love is indulgent or wrong yet the opposite - self-hate - is acceptable.
I use the “I Love You, Me” process, which is a simple, yet transformative practice, designed to bring you back to a place of unconditional self love and acceptance.
Through the seven-step I Love You, Me practice, you will find your way back to the unconditional love that has always been available to you. It involves a loving conversation with your inner child, seeing, hearing and loving them, while acknowledging any pain and trauma carried, often since childhood. It allows, where relevant, for forgiveness of self and others.
The gentle process enables you to connect within and get out of the head or ego, learning to use all your senses to see and feel how things feel, while harnessing your intuition and heart intelligence, invaluable tools to move forward as an empowered human.
Painful, traumatic events that remain unprocessed become limiting beliefs, sabotage programmes and often manifest in destructive behaviour or patterns and existing in a state of fear.
This can play out in work and romantic relationships, attracting people that confirm the limiting belief and playing small or lacking the self-belief and confidence to be able to pursue goals and dreams.
Another manifestation of not loving yourself, is being a 'people pleaser' and having a strong need for external validation and approval; not trusting or feeling safe in your own judgement.
Learning to love yourself deeply and unconditionally is a liberating experience. It brings you home to the truth of who you really are, empowering you to be who you want to be.
