Be More Love. Feel More Loved. Open Your Heart to Receive More Love.

Watch this video to invite more love into your life in 2014 – MORE LOVE for yourself, starting with the love from yourself. Open your heart to receive more love.

Happy Month of Love! I am OVER THE MOON to be writing you today to kick off one of my favorite months of the year – February, the month of LOVE. For me February is a month that naturally brings people’s attention to love, which is a beautiful thing.

However in our mainstream culture, most of that focus is on receiving romantic love from another. And so, if you are single, you feel lonely and like you are missing out on something. If you are in relationship, often we put unrealistic expectations on our mates to shower us with love on one day, and of course get let down. For a month that is supposed to be about love, we shouldn’t be experiencing such suffering or disappointment or pressure.

Add on to that the current definition of self-love is “conceit, vanity and narcissism” and that even though our children and we have more self-esteem than ever, there is still a stigma to giving love to yourself. Okay to give to others, but to yourself, even for those that practice it every day, we can still feel guilty, like we are bragging or selfish.

I believe that we each have the power to change the collective consciousness by changing our own choices and perspectives, and today I am inviting you to join me in thinking of February as a month that we can ACTIVATE and AMPLIFY LOVE for ourselves and the world, and as a result stay connected to love all year long.

So that in those moments where fear, shame, blame, guilt, pressure, stress and criticism show up, you can find your way back to love. And so that by years end you have access to more love, you are wealthier in love – sound good?

Let’s make 2014 a year where you FEEL MORE LOVED, okay?
And as a result help more people all over the world FEEL MORE LOVED to? Love wealth for everyone!

There is a special super powered love meditation I’ll take you through at the end of the video so you can see and feel how it’s easy for you and hard for you to GIVE and RECEIVE love. This will help you open up to be and feel more loved in 2014. So watch the video and then share… how it is easy for you to receive love and how it is hard.

SHARE ON THE SELF LOVE BLOG… “My heart easily opens to receive love with/when… and My heart has a hard time receiving love when…” -I’ll witness and send your heart a prayer to open to more love!

I’ll go first… My heart easily opens to receive love from my four legged friends, my heart is completely open to animals. My heart has a hard time receiving love when I am not being compassionate with myself… because when I am not compassionate with me, I become critical of other people as a way to keep them and love away.

 

Now your turn….POST ON THE BLOG open up your heart to love by sharing where your heart opens easily and where is shuts down.

You are enough

Self Acceptance: Why You Never Feel Like You Do Enough… Achievers Amnesia.

Watch this video & acknowledge yourself for how much you have already done so you can start your year from a place of feeling ENOUGH!

I am seeing an epidemic going on that I think you might be afflicted by. And as you set out to create your dreams and go for your soul goals, I thought you might want to see if this is true for you (so we make sure you don’t create undue stress and pressure for yourself)…

You have a goal or a dream.
A project. Something you want to create or cause.
Or even just the things you want to get done it a day.

You put energy, time, money, love towards them.
And you reach goal. You finish the project. Reach the milestone.
You have what should feel success.
But somehow the feeling of success and accomplishment doesn’t last very long.

Maybe for a day or a few hours, you feel like wow, that happened. And then almost as if you get concked on the head you come down with amnesia … you forget how awesome you are, how much you’ve already accomplished, how what you wanted is actually occurring… you don’t celebrate or let yourself really RECEIVE what’s happened, all you can see is how much more you need to do. This is why of course, what you do rarely feels like it’s enough.

I call this Achievers Amnesia and so many people I know suffer from this. Even people in the public eye that you know and would think, ‘She is so successful’… in afflicted by this achievers amnesia.

Here’s truth love, this pattern of achievers amnesia creates stress, exhaustion and unhappiness for you… and you give so much to what you care about – be that your work, your loved ones, your body, your community, the world, that I am taking a stand as your self-love sister to make sure YOU APPRECIATE and ACKNOWLEDGE YOURSELF all the way through this year. Self Acceptance is grown by Appreciating, Acknowledging and Adoring yourself.

Watch this week’s love letter, take the daring act of love, and then make sure to put Feb 13th, Self-Love Day your calendar (i have a special invitation for you!)

Watch the video and then take the daring act of love to APPRECIATE and ACKNOWLEDGE YOURSELF by posting your ILOVEME list of 5 things you Choose to recognize yourself for.

I’ll start

I acknowledge myself for becoming a more kind person… for healing so many of my love cracks… for trusting the divine to guide my life and taking big acts of faith… for doing yoga every day for the past 90 days… for receiving a great book contract to write my next book which I am so excited to write. Ahhhh. that feels good!

Now your turn… post your five acknowledgements here and I’ll reflect them to you so you can feel them even more…

And then make sure to RSVP for the livestream Self Love Party on Feb 13th, my gift to you www.SelfLoveParty.com

Self Empowerment Blog: How to Make Your Dreams Come True

There’s a lot of misunderstandings about dreams that can mess up your manifesting. Watch this video & get the divine download on how dreams really do come true. Choose self empowerment, choose self-love.

I have some questions for you love…

What is your Sacred Dream for the World?

What is your Sacred Dream for Yourself this year?

And are you going about dreaming in the ‘right’ way?

I used to think that dreams happened in the future, that I had to pursue them, manifest them, make them happen, or just get lucky. And that caused a lot of pressure, disappointment and frankly hard work.

There is SO much misunderstanding about how dreams really work — information telling you to make vision boards, to apply the Law of Attraction, to manifest your soul mate or more money in simple 7 steps, or whatever as if dreams are some magic trick that pop out of a hat. As if you just have the right thoughts and focus hard enough, you’ll get exactly what you want. And it just doesn’t work that way.

It’s not that the Law of Attraction, or vision boards or desiring a soul mate or money is incorrect, it’s the energy, the ego, and the attachment, and the partial truths and over-simplification that lead to misunderstandings that can lead you into a lot of disappointment, stress, and pressure around your dreams becoming your reality.

Self Love quoteSo when I thought about what I could share with you this week – as I myself dream and watch my sacred dream for the world and for myself come true – I knew I had to share 3 pieces of wisdom that can straighten out misunderstandings about dreams and manifesting … so the divine flow can move through you. Self empowerment is all about being the queen or king of your own domain, and being the monarch of your own dreams (with a divine partnership of course!)

With right understanding about sacred dreams, I’ve watched my dream to co-create a world rooted in self-love, where children and adults can always source love from inside themselves grow… from one party in a friend’s house in Chicago in 2006 to the international Self-Love Day – Feb 13th – which last year touched over 41 countries, tens of thousands of people with 800 people throwing self-love parties… a self-love concert we video-streamed around the world … and super-powered self-love retreats… all of which we will be occurring again this year (and you are invited!!!)

Watch this Love Letter video and clear the way for your sacred dream for the world and for yourself this year to come in. And then put Self Love Day on your calendar and choose how you will participate this year!

AND… I’d LOVE to witness YOUR SACRED DREAMS!
Post your Sacred Dream For the World and Your Sacred Dream for Yourself for this year, here and I’ll witness, bless it and send you divine love.

Here, I’ll start — ‘My sacred dream for the world is that we live in a world in which every child born is born connected to love and stays connected to love – never losing the thread of love or the feeling that they are loved.” “My sacred dream for myself in 2015 is that I live in a home that is a beautiful, spacious, love filled retreat home AND that I travel the world sharing the message of love and experiencing the love and beauty this world and its people have to offer.”

Okay, now your turn… post here now.

And remember — I’d LOVE to see you in Wine Country for the Self Love Retreat… it was SO Much fun last year that we are doing it again! Go to www.SelfLoveRetreat.com

And also… you can host a self love circle yourself in your home!! This year we are taking a stand to END NEGATIVE SELF TALK!

Why Do You Binge? Feed yourself some self-love soul food so you can stop.

Why do you binge, over indulge on sugar, spending, shopping, working, eating? And how can you transform that self sabotage into self-love?


Watch the video, read the blog, and then take a stand for self-love by posting the 5 things you will feed your soul this week… we binge because our soul is starving, dare to nourish your soul

Soul Food is those small but mighty things that fill you up with joy so you feel happy and fulfilled even when life is full of pressure or stress.

When you fill up with soul food, you don’t crave or over indulge in other things that may fill you up for the moment but make you feel like crap later — you know like over shopping, over eating, over drinking, over everything!

Driving through the neighborhoods I used to live in, the streets I used to shop in, the bars and restaurants I used to convene in, and the spiritual centers I used to attend, have reminded me alot of the times in my life when my soul was starving for nourishment… and how I would sometimes over indulge in something to make up for what my soul was starving for, which of course never worked.

What about when you binge? You know over eat, drink, shop, work? How do you feel after wards (not great, right)… 
 
Look, you aren’t the only person who has ever over indulged and then beat themselves up for it, or repeated the same pattern. So give yourself a break.
 
And then try out these two self-love super power practices that will help you not only stop you beating yourself up for over indulging but take you even deeper to hear what your soul is actually starving for.
 
I taped you this love letter video because I know that if you are overworking, over eating, over drinking, over spending, over shopping, over anything, your soul needs nourishment… not judgment. Your soul needs nourishment just like your body, so if you not consciously feeding it, let’s start now.

Watch the video and then post on the blog the 5 Soul Foods you are going to feed your soul this week.

I’ll witness you, this community will witness you and you will be more likely to nourish your soul with what it needs — saving your pounds, pocketbook and more!

And if you want more support on feeding your soul with JOY this month, join us at The Love Club this month – http://www.JoinTheLoveClub.com
