What does Self Love mean ?: Life brings heartache and sorrow in many forms.W hen our heart is breaking it can feel like, our whole world is falling apart. It is the time when the game of SOLITUDE vs. LONELINESS starts to begin. For me, there is a difference between both. ~ Solitude is something that you WANT and feel comfortable with – a peaceful, relaxing and inspirational space. ~ Loneliness is an UNWANTED experience, of being on your own. I believe one of the greatest fears we have is the fear of Loneliness, especially the loneliness we feel when we are without a lover. This fear traps many of us into unfulfilling or destructive relationships or leads us into
The biggest question is WHY? Why do we need someone else to love ourselves? Why do we need someone else to pamper us? Why do we need appreciation from someone else, to approve of ourselves? In the quest to find answers to so many unanswered questions, we start forgetting the worth of “SELF-LOVE”. We get so busy trying to prove our worth to the other person that we get lost in the middle and at last reach nowhere.
Accept and Acknowledge your Worth. Self-Love and Self-Esteem are inside. One needs to feel it from within and not wait for outside validation or approval. If your life lacks the love, the trust, the connection, the faith. I f the balance between desire and deserve is not harmonious, it’s time that u take a look at your relationship with your SELF.
Let the flow of love within, begin. Open to receive the love, the worth. You deserve it all. Spread your arms, feel the essence of self-love. Heal and transform yourself! Don’t be Conditional in choosing your love for self. Don’t love it because you did a great deed, got a promotion, or got success. Love yourself for both what you have and don’t have all your strengths and weaknesses. Everyone is not perfect. But feeling respect for oneself is LOVE. You are love, Receive Love and Give Love. Don’t limit yourself by saying I do not deserve, Nobody loves me; I am lonely … Because now you are the source of Love… When you love yourself, you do not judge others, because you do not judge yourself!
All that your heart desires is yours to manifest and make it your own. The moment you are aware of Love, you see your dreams becoming the realities of your life. The never-ending sorrows fills with joy, the wounds of the past begin to heal. You no more need to fight for the love…
Feel grateful for yourself
Acknowledge and Appreciate your Blessings
A Small Exercise to Start the Flow of Self Love:
Visualize yourself being surrounded by pink light. Imagine that the pink light of love, compassion and purity completely surrounds you within and outside your body. You are in the energy of Love, forgiveness, faith, beauty, serenity. The pink light dissolves the hurt, pain, loneliness, sorrow. It makes you emerge in a state of peace and complete SOLITUDE!! A journey of Self- love begins!!
