What can we do to improve our capacity for giving and receiving love?
The most important person to feel love for to enable you to have successful relationships is you – yes, you!
Loving ourselves doesn’t equate to being conceited, it just makes us happier and at ease with who we are. When we love ourselves we give out an aura of peace and contentment that makes people want to be with us, which in turn attracts and maintains successful relationships.
Believing in yourself and knowing you are lovable will generate those same feelings towards you from others.
Sometimes we all need a little help remembering how truly blessed and wonderful we are, so please find some quiet time, sit down with pen and paper, and try the following exercise which will help you to do just that:
1. Write down at least 3 positive *personality traits that you like about yourself
(i.e: kind, generous, funny)
2. List a minimum of 2 *physical attributes of yours that you are proud of
(i.e: pretty hair, lovely smile, gorgeous eyes)
3. Think of at least one *talent that you have been blessed with and write that down too (i.e: artistic, musical, good cook, etc)
*n.b: If you are having trouble thinking of things for your list, remember
(a) compliments that others have given you in the past
(b) this list is for your eyes only, so don’t be shy – write down as many things as you can think of!
4. Now – find yourself a small piece of card and write a note to yourself, such as:
“I am very proud that I am a kind, funny and artistic person, and I love myself completely and unconditionally just the way I am!”
5. Carry this card with you wherever you go, in your pocket, purse or bag and read it whenever you feel any self-doubt, uncertainty or negativity in any situation. This will remind you just how special and lovable you really are – try it, what do you have to lose?
For extra confidence, you could carry a small piece of citrine with your card.
Adding a piece of rose quartz will help to promote self-love and self-worth, too.
To invite love into your home, place a large chunk of rose quartz in view of the front door or window,
this will attract harmonious and loving relationships into your life.
If you’d like to call on the Angels to help you to appreciate the beautiful person that you are, the following two Angels will be waiting and more than happy to help you – they just liked to be asked before intervening in any way:
Archangel Chamuel – will guide you to ways to help you to build your self confidence when called upon.
He also loves to help us to be happy and fulfilled in our relationships, and will work faithfully behind the scenes to assist us all to find the soulmate relationships we yearn for.
Archangel Haniel – is the Angel to call on when you’d like some help learning to love and appreciate yourself more, and to trust in your own valuable worth. Haniel will help you to draw on and have faith in all your amazing good qualities – which are there within you if only you’d let yourself believe it!
