What do you say ?
Somedays the chatter in our mind is loud & endless.It keeps playing the old broken record of some rude comment or insensitive remark some ignorant soul said to you. Some days they have to the power to cripple your normal functioning in the present.
ONLY, IF YOU ALLOW!
What then, do you say to yourself ?After you have put a complete stop to such conversations & built strong boundaries around you, to protect your soul, what do you say ?
You retrain your mind ,to say these precious & kind words to yourself….
“You is smart. You is kind. You is important!”
“Talk to yourself like you would to someone you love.” ~ Brené Brown
The mirror work by Louise Hay
“Mirror work is a powerful method for learning to love oneself and experience the world as a safe and loving place.Doing mirror work, is one of the most loving gifts you can give yourself.” ~ Louise Hay
The first time, I read about the mirror work in Louise Hay’s book, “You can Heal your Life”,I was intrigued. I couldn’t bring myself to do it.
Yet, the more I practiced, it became easier.I was able to connect with the me, that was hiding behind all those rude remarks.I would have never believed it was possible by a simple exercise like that, I was cynical in the beginning even wanting to try it.
If you haven’t tried it, please do. It is so worth it.I must admit, I teared up a lot in the beginning, gradually it gets clearer……. both your vision & your reflection.
Another great teacher
It was not until recently, I came across yet another great teacher of our times, Dr.Brené Brown whose words had such an impact on me.
She writes, ” Talk to yourself like you would, to someone you love.”
Pause. Read the line again. It will all make sense.
Now go on, give yourself some self-care. You deserve it!
