Return to Origin, Return to Love

The Ballito MagazineFebruary 8, 2022

We talk so often about being kind, of loving others before you love yourself to put others first and to ensure we will then receive that love back. But is this not an old paradigm? A paradigm where we “people please” more than honouring our soul? It’s one we have the power to shift. Maybe this year, it’s truly time for a change.

To choose self-love. To fill up our own cups so we might share with others from the overflow. For how much longer can you pour from an empty cup? Wouldn’t that feel so much more abundant and delicious? More enjoyable and empowering?

Understanding the power of true embodiment and self-love might just be the catalyst we need to change the world. To set up future generations for a life of love, abundance, empowered choices and a freedom within to live their best lives.

Coming home to yourself can be a huge challenge, a journey we have to navigate gently so that we might heal from past trauma. From life experiences we didn’t choose, from beliefs systems we didn’t create, it’s a return to origin, a return to your birthright.

So, consider…

  • What do you really believe?
  • What do you choose?
  • What are your thoughts?
  • What are your dreams?
  • What are your passions?
  • What is your soul’s purpose?

Deciding what is true in our lives is a game-changer. Stopping the external noise and chatter about what we should or shouldn’t believe, think, or choose. Choosing to put ourselves first so we might be of greater service to others is a liberation like no other. It has a ripple effect amongst all those around you.

We are all so deeply conditioned with a pressure to keep up and be as good as someone else – feeling we aren’t good enough as we are, we aren’t thin enough, sexy enough, plump enough, rich enough, clever enough, pretty enough, all the things!

And a comparison of others steals our joy! It disguises the love we should have for ourselves as the beautiful soul’s living this human experience. I invite you this year to:

  • Bring your humanity to the forefront
  • Celebrate who you are
  • Love yourself
  • Listen to your needs and your deepest desires
  • Listen to the whispers of your soul

See your beauty, your strength, and the challenges you have overcome. You are worthy, you are enough, and you are of purpose. You are valuable, you are capable, and you are seen. You are LOVED because you are LOVE.

Love yourself so powerfully from within that you need nothing from outside of who you truly are. And when you can love like that, love might just expand beyond your belief, and you will be all the love someone else needs.
