Why is loving yourself not so easy for some?

louise-hayLoving your self is not seen as the most spiritual thing to do by many societies. After all, when someone is said to love themselves, the implications are they are selfish, self-indulgent and even narcissistic.

The trouble with the definition of ‘love’ is that it is usually described as something you do to someone other than yourself, such as loving your sibling or spouse.

Love is described as something you give away or something that happens during the course of a romantic relationship. Hence, it comes as no surprise that people find it embarrassing to even talk about loving themselves. In the case of my own parents and siblings, ‘love’ was not something verbally expressed in any shape or form. It was something you did by way of your actions for the ‘family’.

But here’s the catch. When you are feeling ‘un-loved’, the tendency will be to seek out from outside yourself. There is a sense of emptiness when that person is not receiving love from an external source. That source may be another person, a community, a church or even a gang. This is the reason basis of co-dependency and, unfortunately for many, broken relationships.

For many, the definition of ‘love’ is very narrow and is not seen in its widest and most powerful context. It is a powerful energy, an emotion and the basis of self-healing. When you take the time to love your Self, you are in a place of power. It is a state of being. The highest level of love is unconditional. No matter what happens, no matter who does what, you still allow the energy of love to flow.

When Dr David Hawkins was asked how you bring more love into your life, his answer was simple. You can’t. You can only remove the barriers to love. All the love in the world is present in your life at all times.

If you wish to ‘feel love’, remove the barriers to love first. The biggest barrier to love is the ability to allow you to love your self.
