Self Love comes through Total Surrender
Surrender to this Now
To who you are.
Surrender to the Sacred Vehicle you chose to incarnate within during this lifetime.
Understand, that you are DIVINE.

Each of our journeys is completely unique. Yet, we all face the same collective dramas within our lifetime.
We must go through the depths of illusion in order to see the truth of reality.
For me, this played out as many years of self-loathing, wishing I could trade bodies with the supermodels I saw on TV, and constant comparison to everyone around me. All I saw was perfection around me, while my own self worth was drowning in the murky waters of self-doubt.
I have to admit, I spent years obsessing over my outer appearance. Hours in front of the bathroom mirror, doing the whole deal: hair, makeup, self tanner, etc, etc.
Little did I know, that had I begun using that time as a Self-Ritual for love, how quickly my outer world would transform to match the love within.
As a young woman growing up in our society, I undoubtedly, based my worthiness on how beautiful I looked on the outside. How lovable I was depended on what I saw in the mirror before me, or so I thought. External stimulation is everywhere we look. Commercials on TV, billboards driving down the street, radio, newspapers, magazines, they all are filled to the brim with consciousness altering programs of what Life is. All of this mental pollution, fills our minds, alters our consciousness, and ultimately has lead to our society based on consumerism and endless consumption. Because we’re empty inside. Yet, we “think” that filling our closets, our homes, our lives with material possessions will fill the emptiness within.
I had no idea of the radiant jewels that resided inside of my very own heart. Or the infinite depth of love that can be accessed from within.
We, as humanity, have forgotten a vital truth to life. And that is, that life is brought forth from within. That the love we so desperately seek without, must first be cultivated within our own inner sanctuary.
When we look without, we find ourselves lacking. Empty. We consume and consume, yet still none of our self-gratifications can fill the space seeking love within our hearts.
It’s like longing for the touch of the beloved. Craving to be held, to be loved, to be touched. But truly, we must become the beloved we so desperately seek. We must hold, nourish, and care for ourSelf first and foremost. To thy own self be true.
Look into your own eyes. What do you see reflected before thee? The eyes are a gateway to realms within. Stare deep into your own eyes, as you would before thy sacred beloved. What do you see? Don’t be afraid to feel, child. For in entering our feelings, we allow the emergence of what is real.
We must go within to cultivate a growing supply of self love, if we ever intend to meet the beloved our hearts have so deeply called forth! We shall meet the beloved who lives within us. When we do, we become the beloved! It has been us all along! There never was anyone on the outside we truly needed, for when we love ourSelf truly, all becomes One.
May we have the courage to go forth in this world, loving ourselves fearlessly and fully. May every cell of our being be filled with the Divine Light of Self Love that resides within. Glowing. Radiant. Shining for the World to See. For the most precious Jewels in all the Universe are INSIDE of thee.
