Lets talk about love, self love in fact. It’s highly under rated, yet when we get down to it, whatever ‘it’ maybe, Self Love is the core foundation to healing, creating, manifesting.
It accelerates or diminishes everything.
In the middle of the night there was a deep, almighty crack.
Before dawn, torch in hand, I ventured into the garden, looking for the branch or the tree that had fallen.
And there she lay, my eyes are teary now, this big beautiful tree we had centered the garden around. I had planned to put a spot light under her to radiate her beauty in the night. In her Majesty she was a natural sculpture, her twisted gnarly trunk and branches gave her, her own unique beauty. She was a rare variety I’m told and now she lay broken, and as Bella my trusty chainsaw cuts her up and the children gather outside the gate to carry her small limbs home for firewood, I feel sad.
I will miss her radiant beauty and thank her for the joy she created. On the outside she looked perfect, tall strong, she lived here a long time, but as I look at her broken trunk, she was eaten away on the inside. The dudu’s had slowly but surely gnawed away until she could hold strong no more, until she broke and fell, as I looked at the inside it reminded me of just what happens in the absence of Self Love.
Not to be dramatic, but I’ve witnessed it so many times.
When Self Love is not your natural state of being it can diminish you, eating away at you on the inside, flourishing in it’s manifestations on the outside.
Externally you can look amazing, strong even, but those around you don’t even know what goes on in the crevices of your heart and mind.
And man it costs you, it can cost you in ways you perhaps can see or not see.
So my darlings if your still reading this, you are here, this resonates and you know just what I’m talking about. I’m here to tell you to give it up, that story, that self negating voice, that stick you beat yourself up with and choose Self Love to be your natural state.
Cause you deserve it, you deserve the freedom and the joy that comes with being the full embodiment of self love.
Yes it’s a process, it may not happen over night. but it will happen when you choose it.
When you set your intent, focus and act on being a great big bundle of vivacious self love.
Shitake will happen to clear the way and bring more love, more joy, more freedom into your life.
If you just say ‘yes’, and choose it, even though you don’t know how.
Don’t give one more moment to a life without Self love or inspiring others to do the same.
BE Love – Share JOY!
