"Healing your own heart is the single most powerful thing you can do to change the world. " - Deepak Chopra

You Can't Give Away What You Don't Have

Before you can love others, you need a strong foundation of self love and self acceptance. When you have this strong foundation, you easily attract more love into your life.

When you love & accept yourself you set strong boundaries; the actions and words you hold other people to. You also raise your own standards which includes the actions, words and thoughts you hold yourself to. The higher level of boundaries and standards you have, the better quality of loving relationships you attract into your life.

Feel the Love

This week I want you to play with a few ideas.

1) First, listen to your thoughts about yourself. Simply notice what you say to yourself about yourself. Do this for the first 2 days this week. * What percentage are positive? What percentage of your thoughts are negative? What percentage are neutral?

2) Now I want you to raise your standards regarding your thoughts about yourself. I want you to only think thoughts about yourself that are unconditionally compassionate and positive for the rest of this week. If a negative thought slips in, approach it with lightness. Say to yourself something like; “Oh, thank you for sharing. " Then immediately convert that thought to something positive.

2) Notice how your mind/emotions/body/spirit feel as you become completely positive about yourself.

3) Notice if you experience other people differently or if they experience you differently.

As you experience changes from these practices, please email me with your results. I'd love to hear from you.
