Day 3 of 10 Days to Love!

Gift yourself

So how are you feeling after yesterday’s exercise? I hope you are beginning to realise that you can bring about major change in your life just by loving yourself enough.

Today let’s begin as usual by standing in front of that mirror and saying out loud, perhaps with a little more conviction than the last two days, ‘I Love YOU!’

As before note down any feelings you receive and perhaps how things are beginning to change in you when you say these words.

And next we once more repeat the exercise of growing our heart light. If you missed it please refer to Day 1 here:

Yesterday’s exercise was a tough one, so today we are keeping things simple and light!

I am going to ask you a question and I want you to answer truthfully, after all there is no point lying to yourself!

What gift could someone give to you today that would make you feel more loved?

Sit with the thought for a few minutes. You might need something simple like flowers, time to yourself, someone else to cook dinner. And you know what….today you have permission to give this gift of love to yourself! Do it!

But what if what you really need is more, or is impossible to give to yourself. What if it is a hug from someone who is no longer in your life, or what if it’s a back massage, or just a good night’s sleep!

Well here is something you can try. You can do this anywhere, but it is better if you are somewhere comfortable and quiet.

Begin by shutting your eyes and saying out loud, ‘Take me to the perfect place in time and space to get………. (replace the dots with what it is you would like).

Now go with the flow of your mind, don’t analyse, just let an image come to you. Now look around you. Ask yourself the following questions,

What time of day is it?

What time of year is it?

Where am I standing?

What can I see, hear, touch, smell, taste and feel?

Once you have the answers (the first that come to you) you have placed yourself more completely in this place. Now let the fun begin. Explore, ask to be shown how you can get the things you want, or ask to see the person that you want to see. Enjoy yourself!

You can do this exercise for anything, and sometimes, if you can imagine it enough, you can manifest it in the hard, although the form may be different!

I leave you with a thought:

If you can’t give yourself, or show yourself love, how can anyone else?
