Affirmation: I Love My Body

Practice this mantra with me:

I honor my body by taking breaks and prioritizing self care. I am gentle with myself and allow myself to feel and process what is happening around me. My needs are valid and I reflect on each moment as I see fit. I am beautiful and I accept every part of myself. I understand that I can’t control all that happens around me, but I can control my approach. I am the crafter and the creator. I love my body and I choose to put myself first.

Healing Letters of Reflection: Unspoken Words

Healing Letters of Reflection
[Topics- Codependency and Anxious Attachment]

I understand now. I understand what I was meant to learn. How I was in pain too. But, I was trying to make you love me, even though you didn’t want to. I’m sorry. You were in pain like me. The cycles of run and chase. I saw something I knew I could love, so I latched onto that feeling. I was wrong though. Because, I was in pain and needed to manage and take care of my heart first. I needed to love myself more and I didn’t. I wanted to love you because I saw myself in you. Maybe loving you would help me love myself? No. That’s not how that works. Being alone was scary. It was a step into an oblivion of nothingness. What am I to do with all this pain I feel into an unknown future? Can I do it? Wow, do I even believe in myself? Who am I? What do I even want? It’s the ideas, the potential, the feeling. It’s the fear of changing into a person I don’t know.

…Well I’m that person now. The person I was scared to become because, who is she? She can see. She gets it. She understands. 

I understand now. That I was in pain. I was panicking. Trauma responses left and right. Trying to fix. Fixate. Control. Overexplain. Change someone else. I was the one who needed changing. But, that’s okay…because I understand now. So, thank you. You helped me to see, because everything was foggy back then. I hope everything is good with you. I hope you can understand, too.

Treat Yourself With Kindness Today

Ever had a conversation with your higher self, realizing that in those moments the words you speak are also the words you would say to the people you love the most.

Growing in self-love is learning to treat yourself like you would treat someone you love and would want them to be kind to themselves. Encouraging them to keep going and to be strong because you see that in them. As much as you see the strength in them is also the strength that is present  in you. 

Treat yourself with kindness today. Allow yourself grace through the toughest moment. Remember that emotions don’t make you weak, especially the ones that weigh heavy on your heart.

You are worthy of love and acceptance. No one can take away your strength. No one can strip you of your worth.

I love you.

I Met Peace Today

A spoken work peace in accessing peace following times I’ve struggled with mental health. Identifying and defining what peace means to me. Watch the video here on YouTube!

I met peace today.  I didn’t expect it to feel this way. An all encompassing power of surrender.  A knowing. A feeling. Being.  A state of awareness, of falling like a bird knowing the safety of freedom from the wings that will save me. 

Trusting self. Knowing self.  One with consciousness. No more asking questions of  “who am I?” but only “I am”.  Basking in a green vibrant meadow filled with an ocean of flowers. A kiss from passing wind. Sitting. One with my energy. Flowing. Existing. Awakening. Comfort and confidence in self. Moments gratitude. 

Witnessing one of nature’s wonders.  A waterfall of crystal clear bliss. A mountain of stern certainty. Mimicking the wonders of the moon and sun.  Peace.  Surrendering to right now.  Present.  Just as it suggest, a gift of divine intervention.

A greeting. A congradulations. A integration of self.  Unconditional love of self.  Integrating trauma, self-awareness and transformation. Alchemy. An equal give and take.  Balance.  Understanding pain.

The student. The teacher. Connection. Compassion. Love.  Oneness with love.  Love of self is love of others. Freedom and liberation. Silence of the mind.  Being the crafter. Being the creator.  Stroking the pen as I see fit to write my story. 

Peace.  It’s me. I am peace. Peace is inside of me.
