• Are you a lover and a giver?
• Do you have an inner critical voice, or do you unknowingly sabotage yourself?
• Do you walk around, like so many others, with deep-rooted feelings of not feeling worthy, or good enough?
Even if you were lucky enough to have a love-filled childhood, your inherited legacy may still hinder you today, unbeknownst to you. In these cases, chances are that you might not be aware of where the feelings of discord come from.
Neuroscience can show us ways of developing love and compassion for ourselves and others. Our nervous systems are capable of helping us when we are distraught (depressed, anxious) by using the power of empathy in an effective healing method that literally rewires our brain. The latest developments in neuroscience show how humans are wired with regard to belonging and connecting with other humans. It also makes clear how important it is to truly feel good about who you really are.
If we feel whole and are balanced, in many ways it will be easier for us to be loving and compassionate to others.
We will have so much more to offer to the world!
You can’t give what you don’t have. (Especially to those who trigger us.)
As the Dalai Lama said: “If compassion doesn’t include yourself, it’s incomplete.
Now is the time to restore your capacity for self-love, emotional regulation, and well-being.
Remember, your best investment will always be in yourself, no one else will do for you how much you will do for yourself.
Take care of your spirit for a good balance and rejuvenation in your life!
