"When you love yourself, you glow from the inside. You attract people who love, respect, and appreciate your energy. Everything starts with how you feel about yourself. Start feeling worthy, valuable, and deserving of receiving the best life has to offer.

How are you today?
If you hurried through it, or skipped right over it, please . . . take a few big breaths. And then, (re)-read the quotation up above. 🎤💧
Wow! These words embody so much of what the journey is all about. Loving ourselves is big, important work; however, this work is often set aside, neglected, or avoided all together.
I wonder how much of the chatter inside our brains is actually consumed with negativity towards ourselves? If we could calculate, what percentage would it be? 😬
And, for what? To what end?
This is one of the many reasons why I love, and need, a daily practice.
The very second verse, written by Patanjali explaining yoga, states, "Yogas chitta vritti nirodha" or "Meditation and contemplation are powerful tools for training and disciplining the mind." (Pandit Rajmani Tigunait, Yoga International)
Notice it does not say "control" the mind. It says, "train" and "discipline."
That's right! We can choose to train and discipline our thinking. We don't have to stay in the well-worn grooves of fear, insecurity, negativity, or doubt.
We can move that needle into a different groove!
And, I do believe these shifts can happen very gently.
Yoga encourages us to take care of our physical body, our mental body, and our energy body. All of yoga is a practice of self-awareness and self-love.
And, all of yoga can be gentle. And spacious. And accessible.
So, I'm asking you join me.
Let's all focus on loving ourselves more fully.
Let's all aim to "glow from the inside" and "be magnetic."
I believe when our heart space lights our path, when our vibrations are raised, then . . . our light and love ripples out.
Our love connects to, and benefits, those around us.
And, it attracts the right people and opportunities to us.
Maybe it does all start with how we feel about ourselves. 🥰
If you're ready to offer yourself a daily practice, but aren't sure how to get started, reach out! Together, we can customize something that serves you.
Big hugs and big love,
