The February vibes are about - you guessed it - a whole lot of love, love, love.
We were serenaded into the February month of love by the Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse on January 31st in the sign of Leo. The astrological sign of Leo symbolizes our individuation, our self-expression, creativity, self-care and loving ourselves and others with a big open-hearted love. A perfect entry into a month where love is the highlighted theme.
Mahatma Gandhi says, “You yourself as much as anybody in the entire universe deserve your love and affection.” The key to opening the doors of intimacy with another is by opening the door of intimacy with yourself first. So, this month I invite you to explore these 3 recommendations to nourish the love you give to yourself:
1) The moment you wake up from your dreams and slumber, simply put one hand on your heart and one hand on your belly and tell yourself, “I love you.” It’s ok if you don’t believe it the first time or the 25th time, but over time, trust me, you will start to not only believe it but know it to be true.
2) Each day, look in the mirror and tell yourself, “You are beautiful/handsome. I am so proud of you. I appreciate you. You got this. I love you.”
3) It’s challenging to love ourselves if we don’t believe we are worthy of love and that we are somehow separate from God. Start your day with this affirmation of your worth: “I am 100% worthy of receiving all of God’s love and blessings.” And repeat this affirmation throughout the day in moments where you feel unworthy and unloveable.
May the love you have toward yourself grow and flourish this month may you enjoy the peace, joy and contemned that comes from know you are loved, you are love and you are lovable.
