As we are wrapping up January and turn towards the month of Love, things begin to look up… The mad pressure to hit the ground running in January and kicking off the year with a bang, is now behind us.

We can now truly embrace more self-compassion and set the right tone for the upcoming year… As we’ve been trying to be gentler with ourselves despite the New Year pressure, today’s Self-Love aspect drives this point home- let’s Embrace Self-Connection and Radiance.

Self-Connection is one of the 4 Aspects of Self-Love we are working on to help us start the New Year right…

Self-Honoring and Being

Self-Management and Flow

Self-Care and Resilience

Self-Connection and Radiance

Self-Connection is about having a strong relationship with ourselves- with fully knowing and accepting all our parts, with having our own back, with being more present, with keeping our own company, with nurturing ourselves.

When we are connected with our Self, we are never alone…

When we are connected with our Self, we are knowing…

When we are connected with our Self, we are purposeful…

When we are connected with our Self, we are inspired…

When we are connected with our Self, we are radiant…

When we are connected with our Self, we are steady, powerful, unstoppable, brilliant…

This is the state we want to cultivate, as this is the Sparkle in our life. This is how our Journey is more than a grind…

Self-Connection and Radiance

Being in Connection with our Highest Self is our Soul’s directive if you may… When we are not in connection with our Self, we are banging around grinding through our life in our meat suit, aimlessly and exhaustingly, till we are six feet under. This is not the way to live!

When we are in Connection with our Highest Self, we embody our full Being, pursue our calling, embrace a full Human Experience that includes intentionally evolving… This is how we Radiate our Brilliance…

This is what makes us unique, special, magnificent, extraordinary, and exceptional. This is who we really are… Let’s embrace ourselves once and for all, shall we?

I. Fully knowing and accepting all our parts

We are complex human beings that have many parts that make up who we are. Not only do we have different aspects to our conscious self that make up our personality, but we have all sorts of parts that are subconscious that we are not aware of. These parts make up the bulk of who we are, and are the puppeteers behind the scenes…

It behooves us to learn ourselves better in all regards to become more whole and who we truly are…

II. Having our own back

Nobody cares more about ourselves than ourselves… When we don’t love ourselves well enough, or take care of ourselves, that’s what we put out and that’s the kind of relationship/s and life we create… When we are not in touch with our Self and our needs, we don’t have our own back and therefore we feel alone and ravished…

It behooves us to own our needs and take care of them to ensure we are OK and have the opportunity to play full out…

III. Being more present

We are so used to all the noise in our lives that the mere thought of silence freaks us out. And, this is for the external world. The same goes for our internal world. We are SO noisy inside our heads. We are even noisy in our bodies… How we set up our experience and environments, the information we consume, the thoughts we choose to have, and even the food and other substances we choose to consume all generate different levels of noise… This distracts us from our Self…

It behooves us to quiet down and become more present to authentically show up and be available for our life…

IV. Keeping our own company

 Most people can’t stand it to be alone or to do things alone. And, if we are alone, we are super engaged with busyness and the noise we create in our lives… We don’t know how to keep our own company and savor being with ourselves. We miss out on the opportunity of enjoying our own company and experiencing our Beingness. We squander the opportunity for connecting more deeply with ourselves and truly knowing ourselves…

It behooves us to have experiences by ourselves to fully take them in, savor them and enrich more who we are...

V. Nurturing ourselves

 Nurturing ourselves is how we show ourselves we know we are special. It’s a form of personal validation. When we neglect, or even mistreat ourselves, we sabotage our Human Experience and create a much more challenging life than is necessary… If we don’t resource ourselves, but are constantly depleting ourselves instead, how are we to have a life full of energy, vitality, health, wellness, and longevity? Most don’t take care of the basic needs, never mind going the extra mile to make the Journey more exquisite…

It behooves us to sprinkle in the luxuries and the treats for a fuller Human Experience…

Self-Connection is the most neglected aspect of our Self-Love Practice and such a detriment to our wellbeing, our ability to create our Best Life and have our Best Human Experience…
