JoyGasm is asking Conscious Leaders to share their practices of Self Love that help them stay strong, focused and powerful as they champion their mission to change the world.
If you only had 10 minutes a day for Self Care, what would you DO?
Self-massage, stretching and appreciating my body
1 minute of conscious yogic breathing counting 2 counts in and 6 out.
7 minutes hot shower with self-massage, stretching and appreciating my body and 5 senses, dry and apply organic coconut oil
2 minutes drinking my organic cinnamon sticks and sliced ginger root tea to down my 50 mg. DHEA, HGH, B Complex and eat my 1/2 cup of ground flax cereal for Omega', while listening to the daily lesson of "A Course in Miracles" online.
I love Naomi's break down of 1 minute for this, 7 minutes for that, as well as her appreciation of a great hot shower. She packs a punch with several super powered food supplements and activities all in 10 minutes! She also knows how to make sure her environment is 111% positive by creating healthy boundaries. This woman obviously knows how to kick butt and self love in style!
What is your take on self-love? Why is it important, and what's the most powerful way you've found to do it?
Self-love is essential to a healthy, happy and peaceful life. I powerfully love myself daily by expressing appreciation to myself for the gift of today and demonstrating that appreciation by choosing nourishment of my 5 senses, my food, the positive people I attract, movement, uplifting media and events. I live a curated, intentional life….rather than a default life and I make my living supporting others to do the same.
What is your biggest struggle in your relationships right now? How has that changed since you started learning about self-love?
I no longer experience struggle with relationships. Only positive, radically accountable and co-creative people come into my life. If people self-select distance, I wish them well and continue thriving. Most come back later with apologies.
What's the most important skill you've learned to help you deal with the challenges of being in relationships?
The most important skill is to be present and paying attention to my own body, breathing, posture and the other person's at the same time, silencing the mind chatter in eyes open meditation, co-creating in intimate flow throughout the day.
What has been the biggest unexpected challenge you've had in creating your great work in the world?
In the past, I was challenged by an inability to establish rapport, clearly communicate and co-create. I could not attract and retain co-creators. In recent years, I have done enough plant medicines to rewire my Aspergers nervous system so that I now attract conscious co-creators for projects.
