WHO YOU GONNA LOVE?
"Looking for love in all the wrong places" is a cliche, but how many of us look for love outside of ourselves, when the first place you gotta look is inside!
Self-love is a whole other bowl of cherries. When you embrace it - it feels every bit as delicious as falling in love with the man of your dreams.
I admit that for me it was a struggle. If only I had known this little secret ritual it would have been so easy!
Daily Magic Mirror Ritual
Look into your eyes standing in front of a mirror and say to yourself out loud “I accept myself unconditionally right now. I love you. You are fabulous.”
Look at yourself with truly loving eyes, the way that you would lovingly look at a kitten, a puppy or your child.
Appreciate your good points. Your warm smile, the color of your eyes, the strength of your arms.
Trust me, it will feel silly, awkward and a little ridiculous. Make no mistake. This is a serious battle of wills with your inner critic.
You will win only if you do this exercise regularly, every day. In fact you can do it every time you go to the bathroom and look in the mirror. It’s a beautiful habit to develop, powerfully healing and transformational.
We women are constantly reminded of our imperfections. If we accepted and loved our bodies, several billion dollar industries would go out of business overnight!
This body-image battle is almost impossible to win because no matter how many pounds you lose, there will always be something else to fix.
So you might as well start loving the hell out of yourself! And that’s what the MAGIC MIRROR exercise will do for you, guaranteed.
Nothing will make you feel more beautiful, sexy and confident than loving yourself, body and spirit. What’s more – it will project out into the world and you will be seen as more beautiful, sexy and confident.
