When we think of love we think of the high vibes of it all. When we are consciously connected with love it feels amazing and everything in life is amazing, even when there are bumps in the road. Life is flowing and in the right direction.
When it comes to self love it appears to bring up the low vibrations. Emotions and feelings of resistance, guilt, fear and it isn't for me. And the biggest one is “oh l don't have time for that”. I get that a LOT.
Here is the thing we all have the same amount of time, except for those taking their last breath.
Self Love brings up all these low vibrations and that is ok, but what is important is what you do with them. If you ignore them and push them back down, they don't go anywhere but they fester.
Facing them takes courage. Having courage doesn't mean there is a absence fear, because it is there. Having courage is still facing it even with fear is there.
The journey with self love is working through the shadows, surrendering them and healing and then doing regular self love practises. These are our 4 pillars of self love.
We have the 4 pillars because we are not about putting a band aid on “stuff” and hoping it will be better because it won't be. We are here to make a difference and make it a permanent difference. This isn't a quick fix, but what is in life? By that l mean a quick permanent fix that will shift your life to a life you truly love and deserve.
The 4 Pillars of Self Love
Pillar 1 ~ Shadow Work
This is the least rosie part of the self love journey however it is vital to make the big, deep transformations in your life. Here we go into your shadow. We all have a shadow aspect of self. It is where we hide things we don't want others to see or know about ourselves and we even hide things from ourselves. Yes it can be scary and oh so messy however it is a journey worth taking because in our shadow are the most amazing gems. Gems that light us up, empower us and raise our vibrations.
Here we go into past beliefs and beliefs that have been placed on us for centuries, especially through the patriarchal world.
Time to uncover our hidden gems!!
Pillar 2 ~ Surrender
Once you become aware of what is in your shadows - the fears and beliefs, that no longer serve you it is time to surrender them, let them go. Surrendering is not about giving up. It has nothing to do with this. It is about surrendering what no longer serves you.
Do you think and talk about things you want in your life? Things like more money, amazing partner, amazing career or business, amazing friends, a new home or a great car.
My question to you is, if you want these things how can they come into your life (you do deserve them) but how can they come in if there is no room? I don't just mean physically, i mean energetically.
How much room is there in your energy?
What is in your energy at this present moment?
Is there fears, guilt, resentment, anger, hurt, pains, stickiness, jealousy, etc?
If so your energy is heavy and in low vibration. Be honest with your answers. This is not about beating yourself up as this feeds those low vibes. This is about being honest with yourself and the more honest you are with yourself the more you will be able to make changes in your life and step into high vibrations, feel amazing and have the life you want, love and deserve.
Surrender is about letting go of these low vibrations, they do not serve you. Continuing to carrying them around with you eventually manifest physically in your body causing dis-ease.
It is time to surrender to create room with in you to have the all the things in your life that is for your highest good. We are not here on Mother Earth to suffer. We are here to grow, learn, heal from our past hurt, pains and traumas.
Pillar 3 ~ Healing
Here in this pillar we heal. Healing is about raising your energy vibrations from low vibes to high vibes. Remember the highest vibe is LOVE!!! Love is also our true essence. What do l mean by this? I mean we are spiritual beings having a human experience. As spiritual beings our true essences is LOVE. We are hear to come back to our true essence.
It is time to heal from the past of this life time and past lives and our ancestors. You have the ability to activate your inner healer and heal.
The amazing bonus of healing yourself is your healing the world. This is how make changes in the world, by taking the journey with in
Pillar 4 ~ Self Love Practises & Rituals
Here we do the regular self love practises and scheduling.
Scheduling is a must. Why? If we don't schedule in our self love rituals then they don't get done and then left feeling low, lacking energy and in that low vibe funk.
This is about making the commitment to yourself and you are very much worth the commitment
We have created many rituals that only require 5-10 minutes. Some can be even done in less time or can take longer. Self love is about making time for you, connecting with your divine goddess self and the divine.
We created them to be short so you can easily fit them into your daily life and also create more time to do deeper self love rituals.
These self love pillars have been created to work through the low vibe crap and back into your high vibe of love. By going through this journey once does not mean that once you are done, thats it. When we heal “stuff” you thought was healed years ago may come up again. Why does “stuff” come back up? Because you have grown and learnt and its come back up as a rising opportunity for you to heal on a deeper level. I also love to stop and take a moment when this happens to celebrate. I celebrate because at times it doesn't always feeling like I'm growing and learning, actually feels like its two steps froward then ten steps backwards. Do you know that feeling?
Therefore this rising opportunity is letting me know I've made some great progress and after celebrating l go back to pillar one and do the self love journey again.
The journey with self love isn't always rosie, it brings crap up to the surface and yes it is a good thing. No one likes crap brewing under the carpet, it never leads to anything good.
However it is a journey worth taking because the transformations are phenomenal in all aspects of your life.
You have a choice to take a path of always having crap brewing under your carpet (which by the way will explode one day and will be even more messier then taking the self love journey) or you can take your courage (because you are more courages then you give yourself credit) and go down the self love journey.
It is time to start moving back into your true essence of love and having the life you want and love and deserve!!!
I believe in you 110% Divine Goddess
You can do this!
You are SO worth it
You are amazing
You are loved
You are love
You are loveable in every way
Blessings & Love
