Sending love into my soul:
Today I did my Self-Love Mirror work. While getting ready for work, I took the time to look into my eyes, and tell myself the following:
“Good Morning Michelle, I love you. I accept you, and I love this body that allows you to be here in this world, as an advocate for Self-Love.”
I looked into my eyes until I could feel the connection with my spirit. There’s a warmth, an inner calm, a sense of connection that is so very different from the way that I look at myself when I put on my makeup or fix my hair. When I looked into my eyes, I found myself looking into my soul.
I was aware of my appreciation toward Daylle Deanna Schwartz for creating the challenge which got me writing each day about Self-Love.
I believe Self-Love is the starting point for positive change in our world. I’m aware of the energetic difference between actually writing about the Self-Love actions I’m taking each day, compared to the writing I’ve been doing since 2004 on my upcoming book, Self-Love: The Only Diet That Works.
Cataloguing my thoughts and actions, and putting it out into the world has such personal power.
The work at my office today was so much more energetic, connected, and powerful.
Is it a coincidence that my clients are making giant shifts while I work more consciously with myself?
I’m a psychotherapist who specializes in helping people with eating disorders to recover their health, and to find their authentic selves.
I have always had an axiom for myself; “Never ask a client to do something you have not done yourself, or are not willing to do.” I have been an advocate for Self-Love for many years and yet posting these blogs and writing consistently has given me an increased sense of personal power.
I can now ask you to consider writing daily self-love blogs and see what happens in your life.

I look forward to seeing what self–love actions you take.
