Self Love Meditation to Experience Self Compassion

Experience your Divine self.
Self-love and self-compassion is a way of relating to ourselves the way we would a dear friend. Giving ourselves a hug, speaking kind words, treating ourselves with respect, caring for and nurturing all aspects of self, mind, body, spirit, being mindful of negative self-talk and limiting beliefs . It’s also accepting ourselves as a whole in all shades of lightness and dark. We are human after all, mistakes will be made, sometimes our judgements will be off but punishing ourselves doesn’t get us very far.
This Meditation is a great way to shift the cycle of self-defeating behaviours and patterns. Allowing acceptance and self-compassion to fuel us.
Support yourself and the core of your being, the part that knows what to do, that knows truth, integrity, compassion and unconditional love. As long as we learn from past mistakes we can move forward in peace, we then allow ourselves to open up to real, authentic love to self and others.

“There are no enemies. There are challenges to our creativity. The greatest enemy is the self. Self-defeating activity and self-animosity occur when we do not accept ourselves. We instinctively reject self- confirmed continuity. We will oppose our own success and accomplishment just to break with steadiness. That break is the assertion of ego: and attempt at marking and possessing something in Time and Space. This self-animosity distracts us from the real gift of human life: the capacity to confront and experience self in relationship to the Unknown Infinity of our self.

This Meditation conquers that state of self-animosity and gives you the ability for constant consciousness in support of core self.”
