Self-Love is the act of loving one’s self. You cannot truly love another fully until you learn to love yourself. Cherish your body and your spirit and treat it like a temple. Put yourself on a pedestal like you would put any other admired person. You are just as important as anyone else in the physical world.
Your thoughts are created and your psyche is trained over years of experiences that shape you. Negative self-chatter is created and most often repeated to the point that it is believed. You learn to tell yourself things that are detrimental to your psyche and that are not true. These untruths are driven by Ego, but your Higher Spirit never believes the lower vibrational reflection of yourself that the Ego does. You can undo the negative self-chatter and you can reverse it. It is not impossible. It is also not something that will be quickly unraveled. It took a long time for the negative self-chatter to become a natural reflex, so it will take some time to reverse.
The daily recitation of Affirmations is the avenue that you will use to reverse the negative self-chatter and negative self-reflection. Daily affirmations, especially upon waking, will be instrumental in reversing the negative pattern and creating a new positive pattern. Another element that will be needed is consciousness. You will need to be very conscious of when the negative self-chatter is welling up so that you can replace it with positive self-chatter. This practice needs to be repeated every day for as many times during the day as necessary until you witness a shift in your psyche. The pendulum WILL swing. Start today. Amen.
