‘To love oneself is the beginning of a lifelong romance’
~ Oscar Wilde.
Happy Valentines day fellow yogis! This year I invite you to look at this holiday in a different way and give love to yourself.
Until we learn to open our hearts and love ourselves it can be difficult to give and receive love. To begin the process of understanding love, we must begin with ourselves.
Start by looking into your heart and discover what you love about yourself. If you find this challenging, take a cue from the sun. The sun nurtures all living things on earth; it radiates continuously in all directions and does not discriminate in any way. Look at your own heart as if it were the sun. Allow it to radiate continuously without discrimination.
Live Light Practice:
Shower yourself with attention and gifts! Be your own Valentine and give yourself a gift or a compliment, take your favorite yoga class or get a massage. Find any treat just for you!
PS Don’t let the love die after Valentines day. Try to show yourself love everyday!
