More life affirming thoughts

‘How to Love Yourself’ by Louise L. Hay

STOP ALL CRITICISM. Criticism never changes a thing. Refuse to critics yourself. Accept yourself exactly as you are. Everybody changes. When you critics yourself your changes are negative. When you accept yourself, your changes are positive.

DON’T SCARE YOURSELF. Stop terrorising yourself with your thoughts. It’s a dreadful way to live. Find a mental image that gives you pleasure, (mine is yellow roses), and immediately switch your scary thoughts to a pleasure thought.

BE GENTLE, KIND & PATIENT. Be gentle with ourself. Be kind to yourself. Be patient with yourself as you learn the new ways of thinking. Treat yourself as you would someone you truly loved.

BE KIND TO YOUR MIND. Self hatred is only hating your own thoughts. Don’t hate yourself for having the thoughts. Gently change your thoughts.

PRAISE YOURSELF. Criticism breaks down the inner spirit. Praise builds it up. Praise yourself as much as you can. Tell yourself how well you are doing with every little thing.

SUPPORT YOURSELF. Find ways to support yourself. Reach out to friends and allow them to help you. It is being strong to ask for help when you need it.

BE LOVING TO YOUR NEGATIVES. Acknowledge that you created them to fulfil a need. Now you are finding new, positive ways to fulfil those needs. So lovingly release the old negative patterns.

TAKE CARE OF YOUR BODY. Learn about nutrition. What kind of fuel does your body need to have optimum energy and vitality? Learn about exercise. What kind of exercise can you enjoy? Cherish and revere the temple you live in.

MIRROR WORK. Look into your own eyes often. Express this sense of love for yourself. Forgive yourself for looking into the mirror. Talk to your parents looking into the mirror. Forgive them too. At least once a day say: ‘I love you, I really love you.’

DO IT NOW. Don’t wait until you get well, or lose weight, or get the new job, or the new relationship. Begin now- do the best you can.
