In exploring new developments for my coaching/therapy, training, and consultation practice, I have concluded I need time to develop my materials for online services. To do this, I’m going to practice a little self-love and go to sending out a biweekly blog.

My inspiration is coming from this wonderful “Prayer For Self Love”, from Don Miguel Ruiz’s book The Mastery of Love. Read it below and find a line that speaks to you and use it like a mantra. Every day or any day you need a lift, you will notice that a specific aspect of the prayer or a sentence will echo exactly what you need to hear. I hope it will help support you in new ways. Enjoy!

Today, Creator of the Universe, I ask that you help me to accept myself just the way I am, without judgement. Help me to accept my mind the way it is, with all my emotions, my hopes and dreams, my personality, my unique way offering. Help me to accept my body just the way it is, with all it’s beauty and perfection. Let the love I have for myself be so strong that I never again reject myself or sabotage my happiness, freedom and love.

From now on, let every action, every reaction, every thought and every emotion be based on love. Help me Creator to increase my self-love until the entire dream of my life is transformed, from fear and drama to love and joy. Let the power of my self- love be strong enough to break all the lies I was programmed to believe – all the lies that tell me I am not good enough or strong enough or intelligent enough, that I cannot make it. Let the power of self-love be so strong that I no longer need to live my life according to other people’s opinions. Let me trust myself completely to make the choices I must make. With my self love, I am no longer afraid to face any responsibility in my life or face any problems and resolve them as they arise. Whatever I want to accomplish, let it be done with the power of my self-love.

Starting today, help me to love myself so much that I never set up any circumstances that go against me. I can live my life being myself and not pretending to be someone else just to be accepted by other people. I no longer need other people to accept me or tell me how good I am because I know what I am. With the power of self-love, let me enjoy what I see every time I look in the mirror. Let there be a big smile on my face that enhances my inner and outer beauty. Help me to feel such intense self love that I always enjoy my own presence.

Let me love myself without judgment, because when I judge, I carry blame and quilt, I have need for punishment, and I lose the perspective of your love. Strengthen my will to forgive myself in this moment. Clean my mind of emotional poison and self-judgement so I can live in complete peace and love.

Let my self-love be the power that changes the dream of my life. With new power in my heart, the power of self-love, let me transform every relationship I have, beginning with the relationship I have with myself. Help me to be free of any conflict with others. Le me be happy to share my time with my loves ones and to forgive them for any injustices I feel in my mind. Help me to love myself so much that I forgive anyone who has ever hurt me in my life.

Give me the courage to love my family and friends unconditionally, and to change my relationships in the most positive and loving way. Help me to create new channels of communication in my relationships so there is no war of control, there is no winner or loser. Together let us work as a team for love, for joy, for harmony.

Let my relationships with my family and friends be based on respect and joy so I no longer have the need to tell them how to think and how to be. Let me romantic relationship be the most wonderful relationship” le me feel joy every time I share myself with my partner. Help me to accept others just the way they are, without judgment, because when I reject them, I reject myself. When I reject myself, I reject you.

Today is a new beginning. Help me to start my life over beginning today with the power of self-love. Help me to enjoy my life, to enjoy my relationships, to explore love, to take risks, to be alive, and to no longer live in fear of love. Let me open my hear to the love that is my birthright. Help me to become a master o gratitude, generosity and love so that I can enjoy all of your creation forever and ever. AMEN
