If you want to experience deep, core healing, there is one critical first step you must take.
Learn to just love yourself.
Love everything about yourself—your body, your appearance, your gifts, your challenges—everything. At your core, you are love. Just love. Engaging in a moment-to-moment, lifelong process of bringing this core essence to light is a beautiful, powerful, empowering path for healing.
Just love yourself as a being of beauty and perfection. Note that I have not said to “accept” yourself. Just love yourself without feeling obligated to accept or reject anything. I also did not tell you to love yourself “just the way you are.” Just love yourself without regard to what you are, what you were, what you hope someday to be, or what your fears tell you that you may someday become.
Love is the divine light that illuminates your perfect beauty.
You can just love yourself today, in this moment, and still work to grow and evolve in your lifes. To quote Ralph Waldo Emerson: “These roses beneath my window make no reference to former roses or better ones. They are for what they are. They exist with God today.”
Exist with God today—just love yourself.
