A Facial Roller and Self Love

I received a facial roller for Christmas. In case you don’t know what it is, the premise behind it is that you roll the healing stone over your skin to help ease the appearance of lines, wrinkles and under-eye bags. Does it work? Let’s just say no one has told me I look 10 years younger.

But my roller is made of rose quartz—stone of universal love. So, each morning I move it over my face and tell myself “I love you.” And, even though it feels a bit awkward, using it in this way works wonders! 

I believe our culture does not value self-love, so even if we grow up in a loving family, we don’t necessarily learn why or how to truly love ourselves. I also believe that if we each genuinely loved ourselves, then loving each other would be no problem.

One of my teachers once told me that our brains do not know the difference between someone else saying “I love you” and saying it to ourselves. If that is true, then a great way to start  living in a vibration of self-love is to practice saying “I love you” to yourself. It can’t hurt! In what ways do you express self-love?

Telling the truth

Three of my girlfriends and I road-tripped to Santa Fe a couple of weekends ago, and I brought back something unexpected–a truer version of myself. The desert-y landscape of New Mexico has always felt healing. Although Santa Fe is technically not high desert (it’s semi-arid steppe) there is an openness to the land and sky there that seduces me. It feels vast and vulnerable at the same time, like a dancing woman slowly removing her clothing. Like the truth. Our truth-telling began before we left Colorado. At a lunch stop in Pueblo, for some reason we got into a conversation
