What the world needs now... it’s love in all forms.
The most important way we can show up in the world and make an impact is to start with loving ourselves.
Isn’t it interesting...
How it can feel so much easier to love others? Doesn’t that sometimes feel like it’s the best route to show up in the world?
Loving others, ALL others, not just the ones who think, feel and live the same ways you do, is critical to co-creating a harmonious world...
If you are not loving on yourself first, are you shining outward your truth? Is it the kind of love that will move mountains, bring people together and radiate the high vibration that is so needed right now?
There is so much truth to the saying “you can’t pour from an empty cup” and really, you can’t love from an empty vessel either.
Yes, it can feel like true love and often it feels good to love, but we are being asked, strongly encouraged, to find ways to first turn inward and love all of The Who we are.
This is where the magic happens.
It takes practice. Many of us have not been conditioned to love ourselves first. In some ways we have been taught that it’s selfish, self-centered and egotistical to love ourselves.
Here’s the thing...
If you want to be the change you see in the world, loving of self is the first step.
It’s the only step because it is from there that real change can happen, for each individual and for the collective.
What is one thing you can do today to fill your cup with love? It doesn’t have to be a HUGE big-bang action. Start with something small. Perhaps it’s making yourself a cup of tea with the intention of nurturing and nourishing your self, body-mind-spirit. Maybe it’s gently quieting the judging voice when you perceive you’ve done something “wrong”.
One small step is all it takes to get the momentum going.
Give it a try, see how things begin to shift within and around you!
You may be surprised to find how much more ease and grace and flow shows up for you.
