Can you look in the mirror say “I LOVE YOU!”? Honestly - can you put the ego aside, or maybe it is pain you need to heal from and say ‘I LOVE YOU’ to yourself while looking in the mirror?
There are several types of love, but the love I refer to, in Greek is called Agape love, or selfless love. This is pure love, it is accepting, compassionate, unconditional, and is free from expectations. A general reading at weddings from Corinthians 13 is an excellent definition for Agape love "Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails."
I spent most of my life not loving myself. I avoided mirrors, there was no way I could look into one and say - “I love you,” not at least until I started doing some inner work and healing. I had heard all my life I was too fat, I felt stupid and it all started with the SRA reading cards and could never get to the pretty colored cards because I struggled with reading comprehension. These are just two negative powerful messages I had received and internalized. I needed to step into healing so I could follow my soul's purpose. I knew I was put on this earth for a purpose; my kids were grown, my husband had passed and I was still young – I was not living a life of joy and purpose.
Since I started my personal transformation I can now do mirror work and tell myself ‘I love you’’, and do so with gratitude. I will pamper myself with a massage, flowers, go out and get a great cappuccino. This year, for Christmas, I purchased a fabulous hand-held head massager I use in the shower to wash my hair. I had it wrapped and waited to Christmas morning – I love it!
If you can’t treat yourself well, how well can you love others in your life? In the sacred writings (books of Leviticus and Matthew), it says “love God and love your neighbor as yourself.” One of my biggest lessons in learning to love myself, was to learn to set boundaries - by saying no when my gut was telling me ‘don’t do it.’
When we learn we are responsible for loving yourself and not rely on others, we will be happier, healthier will attract people around us who actually have a similar vibration. You will find yourself in much more robust relationships with family members and those you choose to have relationships with.
I recently received a review from a client, I was overwhelmed with joy for this person. Here is what she said: “Heart Source Energy Coaching' Makes a Difference I’m a 58-year-old divorcee with little or no interest in finding another mate. I am happy living alone and taking care of my family and myself. I just don’t happen to attract the opposite sex as I used to and I’ve accepted that. It isn’t just an age issue; it’s also lifestyle choices. After menopause, my libido basically shut down. However, I’ve invested some time and resources into healing with a Reiki healer, which has awakened my interest in sex. It has been liberating; however, I am not interested in just finding a sex partner or a new mate to take care of my needs. Through these energy sessions with my healer, I’ve come to accept and love myself more. With that, I wanted to explore ways to achieve fulfillment sexually that wasn’t just a physical act but would help me make a greater sense of intimacy with myself. I can’t recommend an investment in your own healing and self-acceptance highly enough. Although I went through years of therapy, I never knew how to love myself until I began seeing my Reiki master and life coach. Energy healing is powerful stuff. It is outside this world powerful and is a means to begin the journey within. A journey worth taking.” D-, Pittsburgh, PA Feb. ‘19
I can say this woman has been through a life of hell and to see her at a place where she desires to love herself makes my heart swell with gratitude.
Can you imagine a world where we all treat one another with love? Is a world of love the kind of world you would like to live in? I say it starts with me - would you like to join me?
