How do I love myself?

Have you heard that saying, “you can’t truly love someone else until you truly love yourself?”. It’s a legitimate saying but how do we actually truly love ourselves.

It seems like a never ending process to loving ourselves. The path of healing and enlightenment can take on so many layers, so much time and effort.

How do we focus on ourselves when we are meant to be focusing on how we can help others, how to change the world positively in our own little way and work on loving ourselves deeply at the same time?

I can tell you the answer – but don’t expect some magical instant gratification secret or some secret pill formulation. You can get a taste of it with substances but this is fake and short lived.

You need to be able to go deep within. Under all the layers of anger, of fear and frustration. Even deeper then what you are consciously aware of and could image. Right into the subconscious, the cellular memory and soul memory.

It will be treacherous, unforgiving, you will be in bed for days and feel a deeper pain than you have ever felt before… all in the name of loving yourself.

Let me tell you this though, once you go through, layer by layer – you will start to feel lighter and lighter. You will start to learn from the pain. You will start to forgive yourself.

From forgiveness of yourself and others, you will accept that you have light and dark parts within you and start to love them all.

You will notice something that you don’t love about someone else, find that in yourself and do the work all over again, freeing and loving yourself and them in gratitude.

Then you will start to love yourself.
