Self-Love. How Does It Affect Your Health?
When looking at holistic health, do you think self-love is a worthy topic? Our previous editions of Holistic Living Magazine have been focused on ‘illnesses or diseases’. As a therapist myself, over the years of working with my clients, whether it has been on their physical body through massage, energetic body through Reiki or emotional/spiritual body through hypnotherapy and NLP, each client, in their own way showed me that if we don’t show ourselves self-love, there becomes an issue in our body or life.
This made me look deeper at myself to show me how lack of self-love had been affecting me in my life and there were many. I am lucky enough to know many amazing therapists (many are writing for this magazine) and I worked with them on my issues.
It took many years and the more I worked on myself, the more I uncovered. This is of course still a work in progress as it will be for us all until the day we die.
The good news is, the more we love ourselves, the easier life becomes and more flow happens for us because we stop sabotaging ourselves. When we show ourselves self-love, the universe reflects that back to us. As with anything, the awareness that we have lack of self-love is the start.
Lack of self-love will show up differently in different people. In some people it will show as disease, in some, pain, in others a lack of flow. There are so many ways we sabotage ourselves, that when we start loving ourselves, things start to change.
Your body will let you know when something is not in flow in your life and when you learn to listen and know where to look, or who to ask, you find the answers you need. If you are looking for an answer for a physical ailment, a great place to start is with Louise Hay’s work, or you can join our membership program and speak to others, who may be able to help you.
This magazine’s aim is to help you think differently about disease, cause, symptoms and regaining your health. When we start to think differently we open our eyes to other possibilities.
This is a crucial area that we need to look at when talking about health, wellness and healing. At this point, modern medicine does not address self-love as something to look at regarding our health. I hope that with enough time this will change and modern medicine will realise what holistic therapists already know. I hope by reading this magazine you will shine a light on some of the areas, you may be sabotaging yourself and find ways, and/or the therapist that can help you on your journey to true health and wellness.
