One Quick Way To Boost Your Self Love…
A LOT could be written about self love.
Imagine a football stadium sized library filled from floor to ceiling with dictionary sized books.
Or the Pentagon in Washington DC. Filled, with stacks and stacks and stacks of books. All about self love.
So I’ll do my best to do a laser beam, focused mind mastery message here today.
Suffice it to say that if you truly loved, cherished and valued your self…
If you understood at a deep, visceral level that you are actually pretty damn amazing, unique and literally a MIRACLE of CREATION…
IF YOU WERE ABLE TO COMMUNICATE YOUR AMAZING-NESS to yourself through out your day…
AND if you were able to interact with the world FROM THAT PLACE OF POWERFUL SELF ACCEPTANCE AND SELF APPRECIATION…
Your life would probably be very different than it is right now.
I am NOT talking about stomping around overcompensating for a deep sense of inferiority by being a bragging, ego maniacal “put down artist”.
- I am talking about a calm, quiet, peaceful, completeness.
- I am talking about being able to be still and present to whatever is happening externally.
- I am talking about a deep pool of solid, ROCK SOLID, firmly ANCHORED appreciation for exactly who and what you are RIGHT NOW.
If you interacted with your world from THAT place, what would it be like?
Take a moment to consider that.
And while breathing, give these “thought loops” a test drive for the rest of the day.
- Why do I love myself so much?
- Why am I complete, whole, healthy and joyful right now?
- Why do I allow my highest good to guide me today?
and here is the kicker…
Are you ready?
This question has helped me so much that I even hesitate to share it because I don’t know if you’re actually ready to hear it or practice it.
But I am feeling open and generous today and I am so filled with self love that I just want to share it with you so you can feel how awesome it is to be so filled with self love….
So I will share it.
But first I have to ask you again.
Are you ready?
Whenever something comes up that used to freak me out and cause me to worry about other people’s reactions, rejections, judgements, criticisms, upset-ness or whatever I was anxious, worried or even CONCERNED about, I start POURING this question into my neurology.
IF I TRULY LOVED MYSELF, WHAT WOULD I DO, SAY OR THINK NOW?
If I truly loved myself, what would I do, say or think now?
Write that baby out a couple hundred times this morning.
In fact if you truly loved yourself you would definitely write that question out a hundred times this morning….
AND you just might find yourself writing it out a hundred times this evening as well…
And guess what? NOW I HAVE TO AS WELL.
Because you know what? I TRULY love myself today. And I only share with you mind mastery methods that I actually practice myself.
A couple of years ago a bunch of evangelical Christian Youth leaders somehow got a huge number of young people to wear a wrist band or carry a key chain with these initials:
“What would Jesus do?”
With all due respect to Jesus, I just may have to get wrist bands made that say:
What Would I Do If I Truly Loved Myself?
- What would I do if I truly loved myself?
- What would I think if I truly loved myself?
- What would I say if I truly loved myself?
- How would I act if I truly loved myself?
- How would I feel if I truly loved myself?
- Why DO I truly love myself?
If you truly love yourself you don’t allow other people to treat you poorly.
If you truly love yourself you would treat other people well but you wouldn’t give in to peer pressure to do dumb stuff that you don’t want to do.
If you truly love yourself you would speak your truth immediately when someone inadvertently violates your boundaries or your values
If you truly love yourself you would ask for that raise or you would get your resume out and start looking for a better job or career.
If you truly love yourself you would NEVER, EVER put garbage food in your body
If you truly love yourself you would take EXQUISITE care of your body AND your MIND AND the people you care about.
Get the point?
Got it? Good! (I’m glad we had this little tawk.)
Now. While you are writing these questions out by hand, you might want to drive the idea DEEPER into your unconscious mind by going ahead and listening to this song:
Song #161 “Beautiful Person” (arrangement by Gene Moore)
( I wrote it many years ago when I was first struggling to understand that I was not garbage. Back then, I had a lot of “head trash” in my mind from misunderstanding this whole concept of self love. I thought self love was bad. I thought self love was egotistical and narcissistic. I thought it was selfish, self centered, conceited.
The truth is that whatever created us – God, or the Universe, or some massively weird accidental or mystical or purposeful “Force” – does not make “junk”.
Look around YOU!
Every living creature is purely and awesomely PERFECT. Even mosquitos. Even Squirrels. Even fish and salamanders, horses, eagles, sparrows, flowers. EVERYTHING in this crazy world is AMAZINGLY PERFECT.
Why would you believe anything other than YOU are also perfect and awesome?
So listen to the song and do the exercise ok?
Then let me know how your life starts feeling.
After I write my self love questions out a hundred times, I’m going to work on my Bully Proof Kid / Bully Proof Teen program that I’ve been invited to present in South Carolina in November.
Why? Because I LOVE myself SO much, that I want to make a HUGELY positive impact on the lives of kids who just might need to hear about how awesome they are and how they can learn to handle any thing or any one that shows up on their Hero’s Journey to challenge them. Including “bullies”, “head trash”, “limited thinking”, “social conditioning”, “low self esteem”, “teasing”, “name calling”, etc.
BTW if you were ever bullied as a kid, drop me a line. Please keep it short and to the point. What happened? How did you get through being bullied? If there was any advice you could give to your younger self about how to handle those tough school yard situations, what would it be?
p.s. Have you marked your calendar yet for my HUGE 40th anniversary celebration to commemorate 4 decades of compulsive songwriting and personal development? REMEMBER it’s November 19th. Got it? Good.
p.p.s. Please also remember that Transformation Tuesday is on a short break and we will be back right after Labor Day to finish up this current 90 day Transformation Challenge STRONG! Filled with self love and empowered passion and purpose. COWABUNGAH!
Got something to share that could help me to help more people just like you?
