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?
