SELF LOVE ALCHEMY- Basic level (Foundation for Advanced)
DEPROGRAM your Self, from all the UNTRUTHS, REPROGRAM your SELF, to love the MOST IMPORTANT person for you on this planet--- 'YOU'.
Awaken my Beloved Aphrodite Awaken: APHRODITE IS THE GODDESS OF LOVE, who teaches us the most important lessons of all TO FALL MADLY, DEEPLY, UNCONDITIONALLY IN LOVE WITH YOUR SELF.
* First and foremost She teaches us THAT YOU ARE ENOUGH, MORE THAN ENOUGH.....Until we can reach this level of SELF-VALIDATION, we will keep on seeking approval outside and therefore the locus, the center of our life will be OUT SIDE and therefor not in our own hands, which will make us feel DISEMPOWERED.
And THE TRUTH IS that the love that you're searching for in every other person will never be able to fulfill this deep sacred infinite longing in your heart FOR YOUR TRUE INNER BELOVED WHO WILL VALIDATE YOU AND LOVINGLY EMBRACE ALL YOUR FEELINGS, WHO WILL COMMUNICATE WITH YOU WITH UTMOST RESPECT AND UNCONDITIONAL LOVE.
* Secondly, She teaches us, that self love needs to be TOTAL AND RADICAL AND 100% COMPLETE, you cannot choose bits and pieces of yourself, that you will accept and love in your self and then shun out, reject and shame the rest of your qualities....if you had kids, would you shun them out for having dark qualities??? So this journey will INCLUDE SHADOW WORK, TO TRAIN YOU TO LOVE ALL THE REJECTED PARTS OF YOURSELF.
~ Thirdly, She teaches us about the POWER OF OUR BODIES AND OUR SACRED SENSUALITY AS A WOMAN...... When you dance intoxicated with wild reckless abandon to the rhythms of your own Heart beat, you connect with your deepest SOUL TRUTH, This embodiment of your Feminine truth helps your fall AUTHENTICALLY AND DEEPLY IN LOVE WITH YOUR OWN SELF AND YOUR OWN LIFE.
I dare you to Own your too-much-ness, to Unleash your true AUTHENTIC VOICE, To FALL MADLY IN LOVE with all of you, each and every part, through this journey of Self love, the journey back HOME to your HEART.......
