Work Out Your Love Muscle

kissing-self-in-the-mirror

Friendly reminder here.  There are times when we wonder if anyone really loves us.  Ever feel that way?  We want to believe it, and yet there can be this little voice inside that tells us they really don’t.  It tells us that everyone out there has their own best interest in mind, that they’re only being nice, but when push comes to shove they’re just giving us lip service.

I’m here to tell you that getting a handle on that voice is totally an inside job.  There is absolutely nothing you can do to shut it up permanently, but you can certainly turn down the volume and add a new character.  The Self Love Queen, yes, that’s what I’m talkin’ about.

You see, if you begin practicing self-love, you start to notice it everywhere.  People respond to you differently.  Nice things happen.  You get bonus gifts from the universe and happy surprises. Dogs and babies flirt with you, and your popularity gets a major boost.

Think about it.  Why the hell would you like someone who doesn’t even like themselves?  Tough to do, right?!  Sure, you can like them a bit, pity them some, and even get your inner martyr stoked on saving them from their own self loathing, but do you really want to hang out with them much?  It’s depressing because no matter how much love you send their way, they cannot and will not soak it up.  A person who doesn’t love themselves can’t receive more love than they have their inner barometer set for.  It’s similar to water.  It seeks it’s own level.

That said, the most efficient way to love and be loved is to work out your self love muscles.  Practice doing nice things for yourself.  Force yourself to look in the mirror and deliver a genuine compliment.  If you can’t find anything right, then make it up until you can muster some belief about it.  Take some extra time caring for that precious body of yours and start feeding it some fresh, delicious food.  Drink more water.  Take a walk somewhere beautiful.

Give yourself a foot massage with some divinely scented lotion, and finally take a break and read that book you always wanted to read.  When someone gives you a compliment, just say thank you.  Mean it. Locate the place in your life where you feel short-changed and set about giving yourself more.  Whether it’s more friendship, more free time, more laughter, more sex, more gifts, more appreciation…find a way to have more until you feel filled up.  Then do it again.

The only way to receive more is to be a larger container for what you want to receive.  Start flexing those love muscles, my friend, and see what happens.  I’d love to hear about your experiences with this and how you opened your life to more love.

    Lovely article Oceana. I think this is actually a wonderful way to jump start a lot of things in your life – by starting to live them. I also think a shift in focus is really helpful. There are often tiny fragments (or giant mountains) of what we want in our lives. We usually can’t see them because we are focussed on our desire and not on our satisfaction.

    Thank you, Rebecka. Satisfaction is so important, I agree. I think the flame of satisfaction can be ignited with gratitude, and that desire is the key to our divine purpose. That’s my take on it, anyway. I love the idea you present of tiny fragments or giant mountains of what we want in our lives, and focusing on them.

    Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your article seem to be running off the screen in Ie.
    I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with web browser compatibility but I thought I’d post to let you know.
    The layout look great though! Hope you get the problem fixed soon.
    Many thanks

    Hey there! Quick question that’s entirely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My blog looks weird when browsing from my iphone 4. I’m trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to correct this issue. If you have any suggestions, please share. Cheers!

    Hi there! I know this is kinda off topic
    however I’d figured I’d ask. Would you be interested
    in exchanging links or maybe guest writing a blog article or
    vice-versa? My site discusses a lot of the same subjects
    as yours and I think we could greatly benefit from each
    other. If you’re interested feel free to shoot me
    an email. I look forward to hearing from you!

    Great blog by the way!
