Tarotscopes: April 2015

Tarotscopes: April 2015 with the Karma Tarot

Monthly Theme

5 of Wands

Stop for a moment and contemplate the current state of your life. Where are you bleeding away your energy? What is eating away at your heart? What is stealing your light? Stand strong, and gather your emotions. This is a time of self-empowerment, and composure. Don’t be afraid to standout. Wave your banner high. Communicate what you are thinking, feeling, desiring. What questions do you have for the Universe? For the people around you? Don’t make assumptions. Ask questions. Challenge the picture before you.

Aries March 21-April 19

Lilith (The Empress)

Aries, look at where you’ve been. Look at what you’ve learned, experienced, and had the opportunity to explore. You are worldly, even when you don’t feel so. You have seen heartache, and love. You have seen the dark and the light. Hold tight to your power, and radiate it out into the world. You don’t have to take action, to be in motion. Let your power, your ideas, and your dreams, germinate. Be subtle, go inward, and let the force inside of you propel its way outward in its perfect time!

Taurus April 20-May 20

7 of Coins

You are in a very receptive place, Taurus. Taking in, and taking on the things bubbling and crackling around you. Be gentle with yourself, as you are feeling overwhelmed by the flood of emotions and information. This is a very psychic time for you, drifting in the lofty world of the between places. As an earth sign, this tends to be a little unnerving for you. Feel your feet beneath you. Say hello to the unknown. Most of all… wait, and listen.

Gemini May 21-June 21

4 of Wands

This is a time of orchestrating, and calculating plans, moves and next steps. You can take a single atom, and build a universe. You have the power within you to make all things a reality. You may not feel this capable right now, but know that you are laying down the foundation, planting the seeds for something much bigger than even you can imagine. Stay strong, stay steady, and be comforted in the knowledge that even subtle gestures can make waves.

Cancer June 21-July 22

Strength

Cancer, you are grappling with emotions, and have a tendency toward retreat. You find yourself wilting under the pressure of daily demands. You are thinking too much to move rhythmically with the beat of the Universe right now. Stop forcing, stop fearing… and just start flowing. You cannot subdue the beasts of the unknown by fighting against it. The real secret is to touch it gently, intently… and let your heartbeat link into the heartbeat of that which you fear the most.

Leo July 23-August 22

Knight of Coins

Your present state of mind has been on where you are at, where you are going, and will you have the resources to fund your next path. Leo, you are a creature of fire, of life and movement. You blaze in an aura of intensity. To touch the earth too closely can make you feel heavy… it bleeds away your vitality. Do not get stuck in the cycle of worry, meditate more on how you will express yourself, rather than how you will sustain yourself. All the possibilities you’ve been juggling will gently unfold without any need for force.

Virgo August 23-September 22

Knight of Cups

April is an invitation for you to explore your inner world, your softer side. Say hello to your emotions for a change. Don’t hide from them, don’t solider on, trying to man handle your feelings. You have nothing to prove right now. Be sad, be happy, be outrageous. Let your words, and feelings flow from you. Just like the planet earth, you have a deep well of beautiful water flowing under the surface… what is this lifeblood swirling inside of you? Have you taken the time to say hello? Let your affirmation moving forward be, “Thank you.”

Libra September 23-October 22

2 of Cups

There is a strange, and unsettling energy in the air. Something is calling you to look closer at the things you are binding yourself to. This can be love, work, addiction, and relationships. This isn’t to say any of these things are innately bad, but it begs you to answer the question… are you feeding your spirit? New energy is cycling in, and with it comes a new reality. Be brave enough to let go of the worn-out, you have no need to solve the riddles of the past, and accept the new!

Scorpio October 23-November 21

6 of Cups

You have hinged your next steps on the patterns of past failures. Learn from your history, but do not be bound to it. Be fluid. Be open. Be receptive. Only when you tap into your heart center, and let yourself pour out into the world will you find the things you seek. The answers truly lie before you in the unknown, not in uncovering retraced footsteps of dusty maps. Push yourself a little more, Scorpio… you will be better of for it.

Sagittarius November 22-December 21

8 of Wands

Sagittarius, you are being methodical, calculating plans, and steps forward. Remember that the path ahead isn’t a straight and narrow one. It can wind, bend, turn, and even fall off all together. Look for alternate routes… tunnel vision will be the bane of you. There is wisdom in looking for the footsteps of those before you. Maybe not to follow them, but to avoid them.

Capricorn December 22-January 19

4 of Swords

You are stuck in cage of mental blocks. Sometimes we bonder one thought too long for answers, never realizing that the apposing thought is actually the key to the question. Do not give in to anguish, and mental fatigue. This is a self-imposed reality. You can cut away the grime, and the baggage. Take a time out. Don’t make excuses just start making plans. Everything else can wait as you regain your sanity.

Aquarius January 20-February 18

Justice (A repeat from last month!)

Where is your composure? Do you need to be composed at all? These are questions to ask yourself. Cling not to the answer, instead ruminate on the question. There is so much power, and wisdom in contemplating the unknown, and breathing in possibility. Your inner world is seeking expression in the outer world. The more you deny your spirit, the more distorted your reality becomes. Speak out. Say what you need to say. Push forward. Ask questions. Probe and prompt the darkness. You’ll find in the falling from grace, you will gain wings!

Pisces February 19-March 20

Death

You are dancing in the integration of duality. Dark and light. Good and bad. Male and female. You’ll find a better vantage point when you turn yourself upside down, and sideways. The end of one thing heralds the beginning of another. Pisces let your emotions fertilize the bones of the past, of loss, and goodbyes… so that seeds can germinate and take root. New things are blooming, even in the wake of your self-described wasteland.

Interview with Psychic Medium, Lisa Williams

I recently had the pleasure of speaking with Lisa Williams! She is the bubbly, energetic, and totally awesome Psychic Medium that some of you may know from the show, Life Among the Dead! I remember watching Lisa in action and being completely moved by her messages, and most importantly, her approach to working with Spirit!

I hope you find this interview as insightful as I have! Let’s give a big thank you to Lisa for giving us a bit of her time!

Shaheen: There seems to be a lot of crazy, intense, and amazing energy in the atmosphere right now. People are “waking up” and asking questions about spirituality, etc. Can you talk about the spiritual awakening/revolution that is happening in the World?

Lisa: I think what has happened over the last 20 years or so, is that we have become more open to the world of spirituality and we are no longer associating it with religion.  Religion and spirituality can and often do go hand in hand but not all the time, it certainly depends on the person.

The media in general have opened up to the connection with have with energy, spirits and healing.  There have been some incredible results and circumstances that, while we cannot show how it happens there is no denying that it’s happened.

With the support of media in every context, it’s given everyone ‘permission’ to own their spirituality and purpose, and we are no longer afraid to speak about what we believe in which has increased the awareness or awakening in the world.

Shaheen: With this shift it seems like people are in a different headspace. What kind of questions are people asking during their readings now, vs. 5 or 10 years ago?

Lisa: Ironically it’s still the same.  When am I getting married, will I meet true love, are my loved ones ok? However I have noticed the increase of questions about their life purpose.  I find that more and more people want to know about their spiritual gifts and how to develop them.  I love getting these questions because it just shows the ripple effect, that one person can change and then they influence someone else and in continues.  It’s quite amazing when you sit back and watch it.
Shaheen: It seems like children are more and more aware than ever. What do you have to say about psychic kids? Any advice?

Lisa: Yes I believe that they are.  I do believe that more and more children are being born into the world where they are gifted healers and communicators with the other side.  However it also goes back to people being a little more open.  I know when I was a child I was told to shut up about it and not to say a thing, and now parents and their friends openly have discussions about this in their home so it’s now a ‘safe space’ to kids to be open about it.  Of course we are always going to encounter the skeptics and that’s ok, it keeps everything interesting.

When kids open up to their parents about what they are hearing, seeing and feeling, it’s important for the parents to remain open and not to have a moment of panic.  The slightest hesitation in a parent’s voice, or slightest negative body movement, a child will pick up on it, and it was cause the child to either panic or shut down, so if we can remain open that is the most important thing and to give the kids a place to talk about what is happening.  The other vital thing is to let the kids know that this is ‘normal’ for them to have these things happen and other people have it too.

Shaheen: Do you have any advice for people who are having extreme psychic experiences, or who just want to develop their intuitive abilities?

Lisa: First… ENJOY.  It’s very normal for this to happen especially as we are now more and more open to spirituality.  I would suggest the first thing to trust what you get and not to question it.  When we start to question the information that we get, we use our head and logic and this isn’t going to help us when it comes to working with our intuition. Believe in yourself and know that you have the ability, and then meditate.  Meditation will help you focus the mind and allow the random ‘thoughts’ of intuitive guidance come in.  That is the best thing when these moments happen you just have to trust! Even I have a few moments where I question or need validation, so it’s only natural to doubt especially when it’s something that you really want to know about.

Shaheen: Any last thoughts, messages, or ideas you want to share?

Lisa: I think it’s important that we trust our intuition and remain authentic.  This is going to allow you to stand in your power and believe in your gift.

Shaheen: Ooh… and before we go… are there any projects you are working on that we should keep an eye out for?

Lisa: I have just released my new Intuitive Soul Oracle Cards, which I am very excited about and I am looking at running new courses.  I’m going to be launching a new website, radio show and other fun stuff so keep an eye out in April 2015!

Active Meditation for Kids: Creating Your Own Mandala, by Melissa Leath

Shaheen: Here is another beautiful article by Melissa Leath for the Kids Growing Up Psychic Series. This is really fun, and has my imagination running in so many directions! 

Psychic and empathic children can handle their gifts better if they know about meditation. But it does not always mean sitting still with eyes closed.

Meditation comes in many different modes. This time we will talk about Active Meditations. Anything that helps you stay focused and calm while doing something meaningful is Active Meditation. Making a Mandala is a perfect way to do that!

Mandalas have been used throughout time as a meditation tool. It is a piece of art that your child can create on a poster board, within a drawn circle.

Mandala means “circle” or “center”. The sacred circle can be seen everywhere in nature: galaxies, planets, flowers, etc. The energy of these powerful patterns is poured into Mandalas. They symbolize an aspect of nature and spirit. This energy can be used to help in the healing process, or transformation through meditation.

Making and meditating with mandalas can:

  • merge body, spirit and mind
  • uncover your own creativity
  • assist you in everyday life, making stress easier
  • calm the mind and body
  • be a healing tool for the soul

It is what I like to call an “active” meditation. By focusing on a special activity, you are constantly re-directing your attention on what you wish to do. By creating the mandala, your child will be spending time very focused in their project (the whole idea of meditation is centered on focus). It is made just for the child, with everything they enjoy looking at and feeling. All the pieces chosen will blend in the circle of the mandala in a way that means something to them. By taking symbols, colors and geometric forms of interest your child can create an instrument of transformation.

A few items you will need: old magazines or colorful ads and newspapers, construction paper and tissue paper in a variety of colors, poster board (20’’x20’’ is a great size), colorful fabrics and paints, copies of favorite photos, charms, flower petals, stick-on cutouts, safety scissors, glue sticks and double sided tape.

Make this into several projects.

You can make several focused projects out of Creating the Mandala. Take your time; (1) look around in nature; (2) scour yard sales, until you find the right things needed for the mandala, (3) spend time organizing the project in a special place.

Step One:

Decide what size you would like for the mandala. Prepare the poster board with a thin, light circle in the center of the board.

Step Two:

Choose a special picture or symbol for the center (focus) of the circle. It should be something that makes you smile: the sun, stars, something that connects you to the Creator or Divine Source. Tape or glue it to the center of the circle.

Your child will be attracted to special colors and geometric forms. When making a mandala, I prefer the circle to a square and will use it in different areas in my life. Also, I radiate towards purples, magentas and deep greens, instead of orange or red. We can be influenced by different colors and also use them in crafting a certain outcome.

Step Three:

After helping your child draw a large circle within the squared-off poster board, take pieces of colorful fabrics, papers or paints and create a backdrop on your board. This creates a foundation of the things you feel comfortable with or wish in your energy.

Blend them together, overlapping, if you wish, to mix them all together. Arrange them in a pleasing order. Add the different geometric forms to the poster, such as circles, triangles, paisley patterns, etc.

Your continued work with the project from the time you decide your symbols, colors and geometric forms, until you have finished, you will be imbuing it with your energy and start changing the frequency of your intentions.

After finishing your mandala you can use it to focus your thoughts on something you want in your life, such as love, peace, or joy. Or it could be used to heal something in your life.

How do you meditate with the mandala?

Here is how I’ve learned to do it:

  1. Place your mandala in front of you and relax.
  2. Focus on the center of the Mandala. Softly stare directly into it, blinking as little as possible.
  3. Breathe slowly in and out. After a little while you will notice a shift. The colors of the Mandala will become brighter or they may begin to move.
  4. Let yourself open to the energy that comes from the Mandala. Feel it flowing into you and through you. Do this for as long as it is comfortable.

After a while you will see the colors changing.

  1. Close your eyes. You can see the mandala with your inner vision (with your eyes closed.) Feel it as it changes. Part of the Mandala may become brighter and then fade.
  2. Imagine and feel the power and energy of the Mandala flowing through you. Feel as it calms you.

This is a special meditative activity and can be used anytime.

Awakening Intuition Through Imagination

Melissa’s Note: So happy to share with you our next installment for the Kids Growing Up Psychic Series, by Shaheen Miro, guest blogger.

You can’t depend on your eyes when your imagination is out of focus.   -Mark Twain

Your psychic child is a beacon of light. A spark of the Divine, as we all are, yet he or she has a connection to that spectacular place beyond the veil (that has not yet been shut down). That beautiful thread that connects them to the Other Side is their imagination.

Imagination is the pathway to intuition. It is the blank canvas of possibilities, for which your inner world can come alive, animate itself, and speak to you. Children are intrinsically fantastical. They thrive off of using their imagination to paint the world in all the colors that make their souls feel alive. This is their Divine nature.

Tarotscopes: March 2015

Tarotscopes: March 2015 with the Haindl Tarot

Monthly Theme

Aeon (Judgment)

This is a powerful time of change and transformation. As the spring begins to bloom into life, things begin to shift. The old is melting away, the tears, the pain, and the stagnation. The light is coming back, and the sun begins to shine. You will find yourself in a fluid, fertile, and empowered state. Gather yourself, and move forward. Root yourself in something new… a dream, a goal, a change, an idea. Don’t be fearful… dance in the alchemical fires of rebirth.

Aries March 21-April 19

8 of Swords

You are feeling the strain… the pangs of pain, and interference. Wipe away your tears, and lift your head. This is a time of moving forward. Don’t be afraid of the dark, the unknown. Don’t resist this time to look at your face, worn with time, and experience. There is still light cascading through the shadows. On a fresh sheet of paper write out all the things that bring you sorrow. Write them in red, cross them out with black; burn them in the flames of a fresh candle. Affirm that you are gathering strength from instability.

Taurus April 20-May 20

6 of Stones

Have you felt like your efforts have shown no results? Open your arms wide, and let the golden light shower you with success, with desires manifested! You are reaping the benefits of hard work. This is a time of results. Don’t sell yourself short, and don’t settle for anything less than your goals. As the spring begins to bloom, so too does the seeds that you’ve sewn. Stand still for just a moment, take a deep breath, feel your rhythm… your personal rhythm. Stomp your feet on the ground, jump up and down and feel the solidity of the earth beneath you. You are here, now!

Gemini May 21-June 21

Five of Stones

Be brave, and savor the uncertainty of winter… it is passing. Though the spring is here, you may feel a lag in your personal energy, and your goals as you project forward. There is a feeling of standing still, you may be dancing on stagnant waters, but there is still life dormant beneath you. Reach for it, pull it from deep within, and breathe life into it. Don’t let yourself become idle… life may seem like it is sleeping, but you are restless. Channel that energy into something. Before you realize it, you will find a gentle wind of change healing all wounds, and fog that has filled your heart and mind.

Cancer June 21-July 22

Ace of Wands

You can relax now as all closed doors are opening. Pull in the unfettered energy of optimism and change. Life is beginning, you are beginning again. New projects will be presented to you. An abundance of ideas will flood your consciousness. Keep a notebook near at all times. Write, and sketch out all things that are being gifted to you. The muses are speaking…will you listen? Stand tall, look in the mirror and meditate on your beauty. There is nothing to fear… you are filled with grace now.

Leo July 23-August 22

The Hierophant

In all your sparkling energy you can forget to look at your roots, the road you’ve traveled and the people and places that have touched you. Reach deeply into your memories, look back on the things that have shaped you…don’t see things in black and white… there are only experiences, nothing good, and nothing bad. What has made you beautiful? What has made you bold? Touch your face, study your hands, and peer into your eyes. Do you see your mother, your father, and your ancestors? This meditation will unfold layers of understanding and give you a point of power as you traverse possibilities of the future.

Virgo August 23-September 22

Ace of Cups

You are happening upon a time of great love, and great opportunity in your life. Feed the fragile spark that lives inside you, until it blazes into a dancing fire. Stand with arms outreached, open and ready for the Universe to bestow upon you all the wonders that you’ve so patiently waited for. Spontaneity is your new mantra. Be wild, be free. New love, new opportunity, and new passion follow closely behind as you propel forward into the arms of spring.

Libra September 23-October 22

10 of Cups

Libra, take a moment to remove your shoes, remove all your layers, close your eyes, and begin to wiggle your toes, and fingers. Do you feel that spark of life? There is rich, fertile soil all around you to plant your seeds of desires, and your goals. Tap into this potential. Relish in the abundance of resources at your fingertips. This may not seem apparent at the moment, but as the month progresses you will see little sprouts of life pushing up all around you. Your only task is to say hello!

Scorpio October 23-November 21

The Lovers

It is time to grow, and expand. Feel your humanness. Come up against your edge. Push further, push forward, push yourself gently, but firmly. You are made of light, and shadow. You are of the earth, and the stars. Don’t get lost in the ephemeral world of love, and emotions…let them prompt, and guide you…rather than overwhelm you. There is a great gift waiting to reveal itself. It could come in the form of a person, an opportunity, or a talisman of luck and power. It will reveal itself when you begin to see your other side.

Sagittarius November 22-December 21

Son of Stones

There is great responsibility in your hands. You are shaping, forming, and firing the clay of creation into something that spreads far beyond your own reality. You are paving the way for those around you, and those that come after you. Move forward with a mindfulness of all people… sense the invisible thread that connects all beings together. Sagittarius, you may not see your place in the world as one of influence, though it isn’t apparent, it is very real. Speak with truth, and honesty. You will be recognized, remembered by your actions and words.

Capricorn December 22-January 19

Five of Swords

You are feeling a web of strain, and confusion… this may be confused as defeat. But hold tight to this feeling, as it will be your guide through times of change. Jump, dance, bend with the turbulence…. Let this rumble of energy be the backbone of your beat, shaking your core and freeing the stagnation. Soon you will see the writing on the wall. The crystal visions will form, and things will become clear. The Universe may be moving, but you always have your core. The call of change will lure you when you are ready. Trust this Capricorn, just trust!

Aquarius January 20-February 18

Justice

Be gentle with yourself… you are a creature of breath and emotion. The wind will rise up around you; it will engulf you, lull you, and hold you. This strain of emotion can overwhelm your senses, and throw the heart into desperation. Know that this time is filled with powerful healing, pushing, pulling, and undulating. As one tower falls, another will rise. Hold up the mirror of self-reflection, and self-love. See the powerful being you are. Find balance in the chaos. All things float in equilibrium unbeknownst to you.

Pisces February 19-March 20

Son of Wands

Pisces step into your own as the dancer of creation and destruction. Remember you are a divine being, see through the eyes of the Universe. See the golden lining that binds things together. Layers are being shed, tapestries are being woven. Feel your body, hear your voice… take your power. If you are daring enough to go down the road less traveled… you will be fed, and sustained!

Five Keys to Empowering Yourself with Love

I have been contemplating this idea of self-love more. It’s so simple, and yet so hard to attain. Really being able to look yourself in the eye, and say… I love you. I love you, your flaws, your perfections, your failures, and your victories. It can be so difficult to really see yourself in all those phases, and still really appreciate who, and what you are.

I know I struggle with this. I know you struggle with it. We all do. It’s something that we feel at one time or another. Some of us daily. Some of us feel the struggle of self-love in waves. There are things that help make self-love easier, and other things will spiral it out of control and turn all our pain into very real monsters.

Here are 5 keys to help you on your journey to connecting and honoring yourself more!

Key Number One: Stay Committed to Yourself.

Regardless of how low you feel, or how lost you may seem; your commitment to yourself will be the lantern in the darkness. The simple willingness to uphold yourself, to listen to yourself, to do what is best for yourself… will put you in the right situations!

It isn’t always easy to stay committed to yourself. Sometimes you will let down your guard, casting yourself into something that you know wont make you feel better. But you have to try don’t you? Because you are brave and strong… and that’s how you learn!

Just stay strong! Hang on with all your might.

Key Number Two: Allow Yourself to Be Dark

The darkness is part of you. Don’t hide from your shadow, don’t run from it, and don’t be afraid of it. It isn’t your enemy. It is your friend. Your shadow allows you to learn so much about who you are, what you’re made of and how much you can, and will take!

Whenever you feel dark, just dance! Dance to whatever rhythm you feel. Whatever song you hear playing. Just close your eyes and let go to the beat of it all!

That is one of the best ways to learn to love yourself. If you trust yourself to dance you will feel sexier, stronger, more vibrant. You will seduce the dark! 

Key Number Three: Learn to Say No

If you don’t like it… don’t do it! Do not feel responsible for anyone else if it isn’t for your best wellbeing. We spend so much time saying yes to things that we don’t really want to do. We feel guilted into living life a certain way.

I always ask myself: does this feed my spirit, or does it defeat my spirit?

If it doesn’t feed your spirit then you should just move on to the next thing! Don’t get stuck in the mindset that if you say no, you will miss out on something. You don’t miss out on opportunities that are good for you, by saying no to things that feel wrong.

In this big, beautiful Universe… all you have to do to get what you want and need is be you, love you, and smile!

Key Number Four: Daily Life Can Be Exciting

Every single day can be awesome. It can be filled with great things. Don’t wait your whole life for the right person, the right place, the right time… do it now. Live it now. Don’t only do what you love when everything else is “taken care of”. Don’t live your life for vacation, retirement, or the weekends.

This moment right now is perfect! You are beautiful enough to shine right now. So go out there and say what you need to say. Start planting the seeds of your dreams. And water them with lots of love. Because the truth is… you have time to love yourself!

Each moment you spend on anything… you should first take a second to love yourself. It’s easy to forget. But it’s a powerful affirmation, and catalyst of change.

Key Number Five: Self-Love is Self-Healing

You may not always feel strong. You may feel like you are losing a battle with something… it creeps into us now and again! You may not have the energy to do what you want, or what you need. But find just a little, tiny space to be good to yourself.

Because when you are good to yourself… you will also begin to heal yourself. You will heal yourself of all the pain, the upset, the damage, the loss… all the things that make you feel fragmented will begin to heal.

Some things will take longer than others. But it is all rooted in your belief. And your commitment to yourself… remember that!

Here are a few prompts for you. Post, comment or tweet your reply with #SelfLoveFest

Self-trust is a form of self-love. In what ways have you learned to trust your inner knowing?

Being mindful and aware are forms of self-love. How can you be more mindful and live in the present moment?

Acceptance is a form of self-love and the first step to taking charge of your life. What parts of your life could use some acceptance?

© Shaheen Miro 2015

It’s February… Love is in the Air!

Love is something that comes up so often in my sessions, and even in my personal life with friends and family. There is this constant conversation happening among people about how to love, when to love, where to find love, how to keep love, and on and on it goes. It’s all pretty power, pretty beautiful, and some times heavy!

Something that is usually left out of the conversation is self-love. I know… crazy right! We want love from other people, we want to give love to other people… but we struggle to love ourselves. But when you begin to look at self-love, you will find a pivotal point of power. 

What does that mean?

Well, when you want something in your life (like love, acceptance and romance) you have to also practice those things. And the best way to do that is to cultivate a space in your own life for you to give to yourself.

You see, self-love is not selfish it is actually the opposite. When you practice self-love you are filling yourself up with vibrant, beautiful energy, and you are planting a seed of intention, to not only give love, but to receive love, to feel love, and to live in love. That seed of intention will take root, sprout and blossom into the world, creating a powerful space for you to share the sweet nectar of love with others.

Isn’t it amazing how simple that is? By loving yourself, you begin to thrive… growing into an empowered person. Growing into an authentic person. And by simply being you, in a state of love (our natural state), you can give unconditional love to everyone else.

Because without self-love you have no acceptance, and without acceptance of yourself you begin to have limits, and with limits comes your personal edge… and that edge will be tested so many times by people and situations in your life. If you make self-love one of your truths, then nothing can shake you when your edge creeps up to challenge you!

Here are a few affirmative questions to ask yourself throughout the month!

It would be powerful to journal with these questions, or create affirmations from them.

  1. What self-loving act do you do every day?
  2. Stand in front of the mirror. What do you love most about your face? Name as many as you wish.
  3. What food when you eat it feels like an act of self-love?
