Consistent self-love practices create a nurturing relationship with yourself.
This is a game-changer.
How you talk to yourself, and maybe even more importantly, how you feel about yourself has a direct impact on your relationships with others.
It feeds the confidence that you have in going after your goals.
It informs the way in which you move through the world.
Sensitive women in particular may struggle with the effects of a negative inner critic or feel overwhelmed more easily. So, for them it’s really important to learn self-love practices.
Something that most of the women that I speak to in my coaching practice struggle with are feelings of guilt around taking time for themselves.
This is a real thing, this guilt about taking care of ourselves.
And I believe it has so much to do about how we’ve been socialised as women. It has been imprinted into us that we need to take care of everyone else around us first. Unless of course we want to be seen as selfish.
Then, when we’re done taking care of others, we can use whatever resources and energy we have left to take care of ourselves.
The only way out of this that I see is to disconnect and unhook from the socialised and conditioned view of what it means to love yourself and to connect to the wisdom of your own truth.
3 Ways To Practice Self Love And Heal Your Life
Also, as we go about our modern lives, most women tend to spend a lot of time in their minds, whether it’s for solving problems at work, or for taking care of their families at home.
If you’re spending so much time in your mind, it’s easy to get stuck in the story of how you should be better and how things should be different.
This in turn feeds into the guilt and shame that was bred on a socialised and conditioned bed.
When you have a practice of connecting into the body, you don’t as much process whatever it is that you’re feeling on a mind level.
Instead you really work with the somatic experience of your inner world.
This is what get’s you to go beneath the surface and get to the real truth, that inner wisdom that we all have.
