FALL IN LOVE WITH BEING HUMANbecause self-love shouldn't be high level woo-woo!
We can go to therapy and talk about our sh*t for years. We can read all the right self-help books and re-frame our “stories,” but if it isn’t translating into real life emotional change, then it’s just spiritual junk-food!
So how do we apply all these big spiritual, relationship, and self-love principles to our lives in a way that honors and integrates our humanity? How do we live “awake” and still create meaningful work and partnerships? How do we cultivate a Universal connection while still working with the energy of our soul?
Stick around. Kick up your heels. Read for a while, because that is what the conversation is all about here.
THERE SHOULD BE MORE SELF, AND LESS HELP IN SELF-HELP!
We are not only souls having a human experience, we are souls who CHOSE to come here to have a human experience. No part of being human is a mistake or “not real.”
Thriving in your life has much less to do with “mastering your mind” and much more to do with connecting to yourself with compassion.
When you make the most sacred spiritual practice you have, the relationship you have with yourself, you blow your life wide open to love, trust and the mysteries of Grace.
After 17 years of consuming “positive thinking” and “personal empowerment” teachings, I had one of those gloriously painful existential moments. The kind where I ended up in the fetal position on my bedroom floor.
I realized, for all the “awareness” I had, none of it was integrated into my life as feeling experiences. I realized the gap between the self-help-spiritual world and our actual lives occurs because no amount of “Choose happiness!”, “You are already love!”, “Change your thoughts!”, or “That is just your ego talking!” helps us reconnect to self-love and our humanity. Which is really why we’re here in the first place.
I promise, every bit of your experience here is real, it’s just not the only thing that is real.
GROOVY THINGS PEOPLE ARE SAYING
“I could never put into words where I always went wrong with relationships, but your blog put it all into place for me and really opened my eyes. Thank you.”
I feel like our time together taught me what love really was, and I couldn’t have answered that question at the start of our time together because I didn’t even love myself yet.
“Thank you for being alive during this space and time with me. After many years of “thinking” there was something “wrong” with me, your writings helped me love and understand my humanity more.”
