Show Me How to Love Myself — a Devotion
Show me how to love myself truly and entirely.
Show me how to eat, sleep, and move my body
for nourishment, restoration, celebration.
Show me how to embody everything that is my joy.
Face me toward my Soul
Show me what I knew before I took on the veils of human form.
Show me who I am with no attachments, and who I am fulfilled.
Rinse comparison from my psyche,
lift my gaze to my Higher Self.
On the dark days, just remind me that I am a good person
and that I was chosen to be here.
Please affirm that I am valued regardless of my productivity or my past.
Help me notice how my Loving shows up in everyday doings.
Help me see how I make a positive difference to the atmosphere of Life itself.
Show me how to revel in my Divine qualities
and to give them generously to the world.
Support me to make empowered choices
that are the best for my body, mind, and spirit.
Help me integrate the parts of myself that I’ve abandoned
so that I move forward, fuller and wise.
There is a formula for forgiveness.
Help me mix it and drink it,
first bringing the cup to my own lips,
to loosen and wash away what I’ve held against myself.
Help me shift my relationship to deserving
so that I tend to my needs with incredible sweetness.
Guide me to knowing my magnificence, that I will transform
self-doubt into courage
denial into resolve
brittleness into fluidity
criticism into adoration
proving into honouring
striving into trusting
constriction into allowing
and harshness into an embrace that is greater than time.
May all be so blessed.
