What is the kindest thing you can say to yourself?
It is my belief that this is a core question we regularly need to be asking ourselves and it is a question on which my practice is based. Although it may seem simple - it is also, in my opinion, profound. By asking ourselves how we can be kind to ourselves, we are re-wiring our mind to turn towards ourselves with compassion and understanding, rather than judgment or fear. When we turn towards ourselves with this level of openness, we can then start to integrate and subsequently heal all parts of our self and all past experiences that we may have previously disowned, rejected or feared. By living from this place of the heart we come into an entirely new level of wholeness and integration within ourselves and can live with a profound sense of security and groundedness in who we are.
It is my intention that all people I work with will 're-member' how to connect more deeply to this innate kindness within them. That through compassion for themselves and their previous experiences, they can start to heal their past and come ever more fully into the present moment and their human potential now. They can truly start to live the life of their dreams.
