L O V E.

I've struggled my whole life with this topic. Love. Searching for love, wanting love, needing love. A constant cycle. When the right person comes along, thats when everything is going to change. That's when I'll be saved. That's when I'll know true love. 

This search can last a life time and for some it does. Never finding the happiness, the love they desire. 

The problem. The harsh truth. The beauty. Love does not come from outside of ourselves, it comes from within. Love does not come to you, it comes through you. You don't need love. You are love. 

All the love we desire - is all within us. It always has been and always will be. Marketing, social media, society has conditioned us to look outside of ourselves for it. To fill the void with alcohol, consumer goods, failed relationships. Never teaching us to do the one thing that we have all come here to do. We've never been taught how to truly love. How to truly love the most important person we will ever be in relationship with - Ourselves.

Self love liberates us to be the best we can be. The truest version of ourselves. When we love ourselves whole heartedly we show the world exactly how it should be done. How we deserve to be loved + how we should love each other. 

"Perhaps we should love ourselves so fiercely that when others see us they know exactly how it should be done." Rudy Francisco. 

4 self love rituals to fall madly in love with your bad ass self?

Meditate - that stillness speaks volumes. Your body, your heart, your soul, it is all connected + has an intense dialogue with each other, the problem - we've stopped listening. All of the stresses of society have piled up + we don't hear what it's saying anymore. We've forgotten how to listen to our body, to ourselves, to our heart. Meditation reconnects us to our soul. Creates the space to hear our internal dialogue. 

Naked - get naked. Stand in front of a full length mirror. Gaze at yourself + repeat the mantra, I am bountiful, blissful and beautiful. Bountiful, blissful and beautiful am I." {mantra from book 'Invincible Living by Guru Jagat} for 1 - 11 minutes. Will it feel uncomfortable? Probably but uncomfortable is good. Notice e v e r y little part of your beautiful body + be thankful for all it. All it does for you, it's uniqueness, it's strength, it's will. The home it is for you every single day. 

Affirmations - we all have a constant dialogue that runs through our mind. Usually it's full of lack, fear + doubt. Everything we have been conditioned to believe. Switch up the dialogue, create words that speak of love + compassion to yourself. Post them in places you will see everyday. Surround yourself with words of self love.  

'I don't matter' + make it 'I am worthy.'
'I'm fat' - make it 'I am confident + strong in my body.'
'I am broke' - make it 'I am abundant.'

Our thoughts create our reality. Choose yours wisely. 

Essential Oils - plant medicine gifts to enhance sensuality, harmony + your inner goddess. Use your favourite essential oils with epsom salts in a bath as a nightly ritual to unwind + connect to your femininity. Gift yourself a full body massage with sandalwood + almond oil. My favourite oils for sensuality, femininity, + happiness. Sandalwood, Patchouli, Jasmine, + Passion {proprietor blend}. Sandalwood is a woodsy scent + has a similar scent to our pheromones. It sends off very subtle erotic signals to the opposite sex + to ourselves. Igniting our shakti, our femininity, our turn on. Use the oils daily to connect to yourself, your inner radiance, your inner goddess. 

Find the rituals that speak to you, that set your soul on fire + incorporate them into your daily life. Witness the shifts that occur as you create the greatest love affair of all. The internal love with your truest self. 

Fall madly in love with you, you get to spend the rest of your life with yourself.
