365 Days of Self Love

Day 4 – This is For the Women

IMG_5273.JPG

This is for the women. The ones who give so much to others. Who show love to so many. Who put others before themselves, and forget about who they are, what they want. They expect to receive what they’re craving from others, because they’re giving so much – someone should be giving to them, right? In reality, we need to give to ourselves. We need to be our own night in shining fucking armour, because we are goddesses and goddesses know their worth. We nurture ourselves. We see ourselves as the angels we are, and we give ourselves attention, presence and loyalty. We are loyal to ourselves because we value ourselves and know how important we are. I don’t want the attention and praise of someone else because it doesn’t mean as much as receiving it from myself. Once I give enough to myself, I can then overflow and give to others. Once I appreciate myself and the universe for all we do for me, I can then better appreciate others when they do something for me too. I need to see myself in the mirror every day as my best friend and most important person in my life, because that’s what I am! Women, if you aren’t getting what you want from someone else, start giving it to yourself. You are a divine fucking goddess and you need to love and cherish the shit out of yourself. Has anyone told you yet today that you’re beautiful? You are. You are sent here from heaven to heal and care for this world. Recognize first that you are this world – you are everything and everyone around you, and when you treat yourself like a goddess that’s what you attract. I’m so fucking tired of seeing women who give and give and give to everyone else and forget about themselves. I’m so tired of being that woman. Look at yourself in the mirror sweet angel. You deserve your own time, attention, affection, and support. I love you. #365DaysofSelfLove My #Day4 focus is cleaning. Cleaning to create a haven for myself to bask in my own divinity. Goddess vibes are strong today 😉🙏💚✨🌿

Day 2 – Morning Meditation and Reiki in the Forest

IMG_5210.JPG

This morning when I woke up I had the urge to go to the forest. This happens often to me, and sometimes I let the colder weather (or just about any other excuse) stop me from doing it.

Today I decided it was happening, so I went there, took off my shoes, and grounded in nature. I felt so supported by the forest, like an old friend who’s always there for me. IMG_5225.JPG

I sat down on a log, meditated and practiced reiki on myself, allowing for the healing and blessings they bring ✨✌️ xo

365 Days of Self Love

DAY 1: Walk In Nature

We’re all connected to something greater than this physical body. You might call it your Higher Self, your intuition, spirit guides, guardian angels, God, the Universe. There are so many different names and forms of guidance we can receive but the essence of it all, is that it’s a loving energy, and it has your back.
Over the past 9 years, I’ve been strengthening my connection to this energy. I’ve developed clair audience, which means I can hear messages very clearly.
About a year ago, whenever I would ask my intuition/guides for guidance, the answer I would receive was “love yourself more”. It seemed like almost every question I asked, that’s the answer I got. “How can I heal this?”, “how can I achieve this”, “how can I become this?” I kept hearing that same answer, “Love yourself more”.

I injured my left shoulder last February, and it’s still in the process of healing. My right shoulder has had issues too, since I was about 18.
The shoulders are part of the Heart Chakra, which rules self love, universal love, unconditional love.
I know I need to love myself more. It’s not just something you can say in a hollow way without meaning. I tell myself that I love myself. Almost every day. But what actions am I taking to prove it? What words am I saying to reinforce it?
IMG_5197 2.JPG
I want to take this journey. Focusing on self love every day for 365 days. Because I’m worth it. I’m the only person I’m guaranteed to be with for the rest of my life. I’m my soul mate. So why not treat myself like it?
I had a powerful experience with Ayahuasca last year that confirmed for me the importance of putting my wellbeing first. I can’t possibly properly care for others unless I first care for myself.
It’s time to start putting my actions, time and focus where my mouth is. Self love isn’t just a phrase to say. It’s a lifestyle choice. And I’m about to change my life.

Note to Self

Poem about self love 💗

You say you love me, but do you mean it?

Look at my body and how you treat it.

Do you get enough sleep?

Do you put love into what you eat?

Where do you take me?

Do I get enough sunlight, enough time with the moon?

Do I speak too soon?

Without taking the time to consider my self,

To put love and attention into building my wealth.

Both financially, spiritually, and also with my health.

Where do I spend my time each day?

Do I give myself enough space to create?

Do I relax into myself at least once or twice?

Do I use my phone as a crutch or as a helpful device?

What words do I listen to?

Are they helpful to me, are they even true?

Please don’t let me disintegrate,

Give me what I need to liberate,

My soul into this world.

Let my wings soar,

The ones I wanted as a little girl.

How to Manifest Anything

with Ted Carr – Raw Vegan, Minimalist, Digital Nomad

I had a great talk with Ted Carr in Hawaii about minimalism, being a digital nomad, raw vegan, and creating the life you want. We talked about self discipline, and how important it is to do the things that may not be fun at the time, in order to have that awesome feeling of completion and being proud of yourself once they’re done.

I stayed in the same apartment as Ted for a week and got pretty inspired by his work ethic and dedication. Hope you guys get inspired too!
