How to Love Yourself Deeply

Shannon Rios shares how loving yourself is the foundation for an amazing life.

The inspiration for the day is Love. The inspiration for the day is you. You are pure love. That means that you have all the ability in the world to bring to you the most loving and abundant life. You deserve this. This is not an option for you in this lifetime. If you are reading this, you are ready to create the most amazing life possible.

The first step to knowing this truth is to understand that we must love ourselves deeply. If we do not first love ourselves, we will continue to create lives that do not mirror our deepest beauty. We will attract partners and work that do not serve our highest good.

If your life is not looking the way you would like, you must first take the time to deeply love yourself. Really, truly, deeply feeling that love that is you at your perfect, beautiful, amazing core. There is no one, I repeat, no one on this planet as special as you or is here to offer what you have to offer to the world. You have amazing talents and gifts that no one else has.

Close your eyes now and deeply breathe into the words “I am pure love”. Do this five times and bring love into yourself each time you do this. Fill yourself up with the abundance and love from the world, you deserve every beautiful breath. As you breathe out let any stress release from any part of your body. Give yourself this gift.

We must also know how to receive. Receiving is the key. How well do you receive hugs, do you really take them in? When someone gives you a compliment, do you take a deep breath and deeply feel their kind and loving words? Do you allow it to resonate with your core? Or… do you reject the compliment or not truly allow it in, thus rejecting yourself or rejecting love from others? …Continue reading on

I think I did something wrong or angered some cosmic power because when I closed my eyes and said the chant for the third time, I got the hiccups and had to stop. Is there some other way for me to love myself? Get your minds out of the gutters some of you!

Seriously, this sounds too simplistic for me. It isn't that easy. It's a bit more complicated than what the article says. I'v settle for peace of mind and contentment with myself. I may not always love myself but I do find I like myself more and more as I get older.

Look in the mirror daily and tell yourself that you love yourself for many reasons and tell yourself which reasons whether you think they arent or not, just keep telling yourself you are irresistible, beautiful, charming and have wonderful sparkling eyes, and wonderful lips and teeth as well as fantastic hair and skin, and it doesnt matter if you dont look like the body beautiful or the 2014 model of the year to be, its a matter of teaching yourself you are worthy and devine. It works I promise you. You must say it each time to yourself if in public or at home out aloud so you can hear yourself b/c hearing yourself impacts on your memory b/c you use another sensory...the ear to hear.
