In a month full of Valentines and Romantic Poems, I thought I would take a moment and give a shout out to the most important LOVE of all …
Loving the Divine Within.
My experience with self-love is that I didn’t know how lacking I was with it and how much I craved it, until I started to shine some light on it.
We live in a culture that is increasingly conditions-based. We define ourselves and others by the cars we drive, the clothes we wear, the activities we do, and the places we work. What often gets lost in that conditional thinking is the Divine worth we all have within.
You might be saying right about now, “Great Laura, but what does this have to do with parenting?”
It is my experience that my internal sense of self-love is directly proportional to how loving I am to my children. The more grounded I am in myself, the more available I am to give to my little ones.
So, today I invite you all to take a few minutes to meditate. During the meditation, imagine that you are giving yourself the biggest hug, send a loving light to every place in your body that needs extra support today, and make a mental list of all the things you love about yourself.
