Cultivating and maintaining a positive inner dialogue of love, empathy and compassion is truly one of the greatest gifts that we can give to ourselves. It is at the core of our well-being. This has been proven, of course by our modern psychologists & scientists, though many of us do not need proof, we know this on a deep profound level already.
Yet it often, unknowingly, slips away from us. For some, more often than not & for others, well, they may not have experienced much of a life of love, empathy or compassion at all. That can be difficult for many to get their heads around but it's true.
With that being said, here is myMantra of Love I use 24/7 to maintain the love.
The Practice First Variation
Take a big inhale of love ..slow and steady, "for yourself" and while you are taking that inhale say to yourself:
"I am deserving of love in every way & I am making decisions that reflect that love".
Now share the"exhale of love" for everyone else & say: "I believe everyone is deserving of love in every way".
Well done! Now do it as many times as necessary without hyperventilating :)
The Practice Second Variation
Can't take a breath for some reason & need reprieve from a negative thought(s)?
Say to yourself: I am deleting that negative thought ( or simply "Delete") then say:
I am deserving of love in every way & I am making decisions that reflect that love.
It's ok to say it really loud to yourself too or out loud for that matter- like this:
I AM DELETING THAT NEGATIVE THOUGHT - I AM DESERVING OF LOVE IN EVERY WAY & I AM MAKING DECISIONS THAT REFLECT THAT LOVE!
Add some extra love: Give yourself a hug while you're doing all of the above.
Very important tip: Do it even if people are watching.
Hope that helps. Much love to you all,…carry on, Dennis
