(From The Zen of Joy, by Matti Anttila…hey, that’s me.)


This may sound too simple.


Or you may find it quite challenging.


It is a simple instruction:


Look in the mirror, look into your own eyes and say to yourself:


“I love you, I really, really love you.”


That’s it.  Louise Hay taught me this one.


Thank you, Louise. You are an angel of light.


Louise also says many folks find this a great challenge.


For whatever reason, we have been taught that self-love is a negative.


But, let’s go through a little exercise in logic if we might.


Would you agree that we all want love?


Yet, how can we receive it if we do not love ourselves?


I can’t remember who said this, “We can only feel the love of others to the extent that we love ourselves.”


Said another way, it is by loving ourselves fully and deeply that we open up the space inside ourselves

that allows others to love us, that allows the love of other to fill our beings.


The first step in feeling love, of falling in love, is falling in love with ourselves.


Your mission for this week is to, first thing in the morning and last thing before you retire to bed:


Look in the mirror, look into your own eyes and say to yourself:

“I love you, I really, really love you.”


You may choose to take turns looking first into one eye and then the other.


Thanks again Louise Hay.



AND: Let me know how it goes.
