Do you love yourself? It is time to take some time to love you. When you look in the mirror, can you look into your eyes and truly say, "I love you?"
Stop now and do the exercise.
Look at yourself in the mirror. Say, "I love you."
If you've felt some resistance within you, it's time to find out why. By stopping to search within you allow the answers to surface. Here is where you have the opportunity to decide if the reason for your resistance is truly real. If it's not, it's time to replace it with a new truth.
E.g. If your resistance comes back with, "I'm ugly", or "I can't stand you," then, it's time to ask why. Is there some hidden past experience that's causing you to feel the way you feel now? Stop and listen for the inward quiet response or reminder.
Ask the question "Is this what I truly believe of myself now?"
If not, decide and declare your belief, repeating your truth to yourself.
Begin the exercise again. Look in the mirror and say, I love you.
If you didn't come up right away with any conscious reasons why you may not love yourself, continue to the next exercise by repeatedly saying, "I love you," until you begin to feel more comfortable saying it.
The biggest problem with low self-esteem is that many have not learned the art of forgiving and loving themselves. They've punished themselves for years, perhaps for things that were out of their control to begin with and for things which are in the past that they cannot change.
But you can begin to change your life today. Now, is the only time you have, not the past, not the future but now. Begin to love you, today! You'll begin to send positive vibes to your body instead of negative resistance which affects your health more than you can imagine.
