So...how is your I Love You challenge/practice coming along? Have you been looking in the mirror each day and saying (your name) I Love You? Some of my Yoga students actually worry that I'm going to ask them this same question...
I share this with you not for myself...but I know what is possible from my own experience. So this is my prayer for you...may you be kind, patient and compassionate with yourself. Like everything new we try, it takes practice to learn something new and more importantly to UNDO what has been done, to let go of all that negativity you've been fed throughout your life. Not only is this something new...but it brings up a lot of emotions too. I can share with you from my own experience...it's worth the effort to practice until you can look yourself in the eye and really mean it...I love you. In time something shifts...in a wonderful, beautiful direction...and then things begin to change because all you do will come from a place of self love. Once the "challenge" of saying it drops away...it can become a daily practice or ritual...and one with treasures beyond your wildest dreams.
With love & blessings,
