Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek & find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it. ~ Rumi
One of the foundations of The Heart Of Awakening Blog is the concept of Loving Ourselves As A Key To Change & Healing. As change has come so strongly into the container this month, I am feeling to share a link to one of HOA’s most popular posts, 7 Ways To Cultivate Love & Compassion For Yourself. This post offers a great exploration of this concept and some simple steps to begin to deepen is self-love and acceptance. This is an important aspect of any change process and particularly if we are working to move out of limiting patterns and beliefs which we may be carrying that no longer support us. Often, this can be related to the inner critic or approaching change with an attitude of harshness or rigid self-discipline. As we begin to shift into a place of gentleness and compassionate self-discipline, new possibilities emerge for us on our journey of change and healing. I hope you will take some time to explore this post.
Also, during the month of July, I will be offering a Free Teleclass on Monday, June 22nd at 12 PM EST that will explore Loving Ourselves~ A Key To Change & Healing as well as a live workshop in Annapolis, MD on Saturday, 7/27 on Living From The Heart: From Cholesterol To Consciousness With Herbalist/Health Educator Leigh Glenn of Art of Earth. If you’d like to learn more about these events or to register online see the links below or feel free to drop me a note.
I’d love to hear your experiences and reflections on loving ourselves as a key to change and healing or anything that is arising in your change process at this time.
Love & light,
