The Magic of Self-Love and Manifestation of Energy

Self-love forms the foundation of the most important relationship that you can build in your life – the one you have with yourself. To love yourself is not just a self-esteem boosting piece of advice. It is also a   prerequisite to truly loving others. Thus, the focus and emphasis on the idea of self-love and nurturing a relationship with yourself.

When we talk about self-love, it is easy to picture someone reading self-help books or dancing on their  own rhythm. But self-love is much more than that. In fact a number of studies conducted over a period of time also substantiate the fact that self-love is the key to mental well being and it keeps depression and anxiety at bay.

Every person has a story and their own unique way of loving themselves. Self-love is thus also a way of relating to yourself without being judgmental or punishing yourself for every mistake that you make.

Here are some powerful ways to love yourself.

-Do not compare yourself to someone else because regardless of how close you are to someone you don’t know what they are going through or how they feel. Small steps towards self-love will stir joy and happiness that will help you respect yourself and your dreams.

-Be mindful of your thoughts on how you feel at the moment. If you’re having negative thoughts, remind yourself that it is just a phase that you can move past.

-Accept yourself in all possible ways. Even if you want to change something about yourself don’t do it just because it doesn’t fit in the stereotypical frame of the society. We should always try to be a better version of ourselves.

-Don’t succumb to the negative thoughts, find it in yourself to challenge them,- and learn from every experience – good or bad. Beating yourself over it will only bring you down and sabotage your future plans. You are the only one who can change your story.

-No one is a better life coach to you than yourself. Ask yourself how did you get here, what is it that you shouldn’t be doing. Tell yourself that you have other choices, and it is never too late to move in a positive direction.

-Every person thinks that they have the worst luck, but that’s not true. Even the most successful people make mistakes. We all have heard ‘failure is the pillar of success’ but how many of us actually believe this and accept our mistakes. Accepting our own mistakes and flaws will help us to build ourselves

-Start each day by telling yourself something really positive. How well you handled a situation, how lovely you look today. Anything that will make you smile. Big or small try to celebrate all your achievements.

-Surround yourself with people who love and encourage you. Let them remind you just how amazing you are.

-Step outside of your comfort zone and try something new. It’s incredible the feeling we get when we realize we have achieved something we didn’t know or think we could do before.

-Be patient but persistent. Self-love is ever-evolving. It’s something that needs to be practiced daily but can take a lifetime to master. So be kind and support yourself through the hard times.

-Treat others with love and respect. It makes us feel better about ourselves when we treat others the way we hope to be treated. That doesn’t mean everybody will always repay the favor, but that’s their problem, not yours.

-Learn to say NO. Saying no sometimes doesn’t make you a bad person, it makes you a smart person.

-Give up the need for approval from others. “You can be the ripest, juiciest peach in the world, and there’s still going to be somebody who hates peaches.” — Dita Von Teese

-Find a happy place. Where’s the one place you feel totally at ease, calm, happy, positive, high on life? WE all have our comfort zone it can be your own rood, your balcony, your dance class anything. Go to that place when you are going through hard times, or imagine yourself being there. Think about how it feels, what it smells like, what it looks like.

-The next time you are feeling happy and on top of the world make a list of your best qualities and accomplishments. It may sound a little corny, but it can be a wonderful reminder when you are having a day that’s less than amazing.

In a world where technology is rapidly shrinking international and interpersonal boundaries, it is easy to feel overwhelmed with the vast amounts of external stimulus we are all exposed to. It is not surprising that as a result, the concept of “me time” has become a global phenomenon,  Hence before asking for validation from the outside world it is imperative that we first spare some time out for self-love.
