What does Self Love mean to you?
Self love means different things to different people, so let's take a moment to explore what it means to me. And then I'd love you to share what it means to you.
To me, self love does not rely on you doing anything to feel it. True self love is an unconditional feeling of love, appreciation and acceptance for yourself. It is that intrinsic feeling that connects all and is present no matter what you do.
What's important to you about Self Love?
We all have values for everything in our life and they are part of what drives us. So before we jump into the 7 Days to Self Love, I'd like you to get clear on what's important to you about self love?
Some of the discussions I've had with a few of you around this already include things like; authenticity, being love, compassion for self, congruent, confidence, freedom to be etc.
It also seems like a lot of you are being held back from doing all the things you want to do because you are tying your self worth to what others think and say. So perhaps having that self acceptance is also important to you?
Today we are using the NLP Technique of Anchoring. Anchoring simply means a stimulus that creates a response.
In the lead up to the program, we looked at what self love means to you and what's important to you about self love, how life would be different in having it as a way of being.
Here, I want you to build on that - what moods and emotions go into self love? What do you see, hear and feel when you're self love is a 10/10?
What are some of the things you've built into your self love state?
Welcome to Day 2. We are in charge of our mind and therefore our results. In life, it is not what happens to us, but the meaning that we attach to those events that becomes problematic for us.
Today, we are going to use a few of the presuppositions of NLP as filters through which we can view our lives. Changing the filter can change our perceptions and therefore the meanings we have attached to events in our life.
Look back through your past using these filters and notice how they change things.
You may even decide to take these new filters out into the world with you as a way to interpret future events too
Let's get started with Day 3!
If you can spot it, you've got it!
Today we use an approach adopted in many forms of Coaching and Psychotherapy, we look at the traits that you admire most in others and discuss how you can honour those traits in yourself.
Ready to get playful and curious?
Today we explore the voice of the inner critic and look at ways that we can change that voice.
What do you notice as you play with that voice?
Part of Self Love, is knowing what your values are and finding ways to ensure they are met! Today is all about discovering that.
Download your copy of the Goal Guide and look at what's important to you across all areas of your life and see how you can begin to honour those.
For example, my Health values include Balance, Physical Activity, Good Nutrition, Spiritual Practice and Inner Work (some of those come in from other areas of life, but are crucial to me for Health). To me, its important that all of these values are met for me to have my Health where I want it to be.
This is a great exercise to identify specific little things that you can do to commit to honouring who you are and what you want for yourself.
