I am reading 'Intimacy', a book written by Osho.
It has been a long journey to get to this point where I am today, so much so that when i take a step back and look at the path I've traveled, I can't help but gasp inwardly in amazement.
This act of looking into the past also re-instills a sense of blessed gratefulness toward synchronicity. Without those little intricacies, I would not be where or who I am today.
It all began with Louise Hay, healing and loving myself through affirmations.
"I am" is a powerful prefix. Whatever word you place next, you really ought to believe or want to be, because once it is thought or uttered, the universe around you sparks and the cogs go into the motion of creating such a decree reality.
I am beautiful, inside and out.
I am intelligent.
I am interesting to talk to.
I am inspiring.
I am energetic.
I am insightful.
I am loving.
I am kind.
I am compassionate.
I am wild.
I am confident.
I am in tune with my body.
Affirmations can take you on a beautiful road of self discovery, weeding out your insecurities, your doubts and your dislikes, displaying them to you so that you may work with/on them, while proving just what a beautiful, intriguing, unique and divinely connected soul you are.
I once read on Louise Hay's website that whenever you're in front of the mirror, place your arms around yourself, give yourself a hug and express how much you love you.
It works - it really really does.
It soon becomes natural to point out the beauty in yourself rather than depreciating and putting yourself down. It all begins with loving who you are, because only then can you spread this pure, beautiful, abundant love you have cultivated and nurtured.
Love yourself for who you are.
