It doesn’t just have to be Valentine’s day to tell someone you love them or do something special for them.

As I was perusing Pinterest I stumbled upon a recipe for broiled grapefruit, and thought it would be a tasty treat. So, this morning I made coffee and broiled a grapefruit with honey for my hubby to enjoy breakfast in bed.

It doesn’t matter how big or small the gesture is, it is all about taking the time to be present with the ones you love.

 

Live Light Practice:

Give a hug and tell someone important to you that you love them today.

If you have the time make them breakfast in bed.

Shanti,

Liza

Be Your Own Valentine!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

‘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!

Self-loving Valentines Day!

Happy Valentines Day!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Valentines is full of cute red hearts, teddy bears, chocolates, and cards for others. This year be your own Valentine and practice self-love!

Love is something we are all searching for. Something we try to understand and we try to take control of. To feel true unconditional love for yourself and others creates lightness, simplicity, and softness. The process of understanding your relationship to love begins with you. Until we learn to open our hearts and love ourselves it can be difficult to give and receive love.

Last week I wrote about the anahata chakra and offered loving kindness as a meditation practice. Continuing with this practice can be extremely helpful in offering love towards yourself. Try repeating this mantra to yourself throughout the day: May I be happy, May I be well,  May I be safe, May I be peaceful and at ease. Since it is a ‘holiday’ and many are sharing gifts, buy a gift for yourself, take yourself out for a treat – show yourself some love!

 

Live Light Practice:

Set daily reminders of how wonderful and awesome you are. It is hard work to always be loving towards yourself and know what is going well for you. So remind yourself! It could be a reminder in your calendar, a post-it note in your wallet, really looking at yourself in the mirror with gratitude, or coming into happy baby posture. Whatever it may be choose something that truly makes you smile and believe that you are awesome!
