Louise Hay attributes all physical health conditions to lack of love for the self.
Instead of telling yourself negative messages, try mirror work and tell yourself how much you love everything about you.
As this clip from a Luc Besson film shows though, that can be incredibly challenging if you’ve criticised yourself for most of your life.
So start small!
Find one thing to genuinely love about yourself and compliment yourself on that first.
It could be something as simple as the colour of your eyes, or the fact that you treat people kindly.
Keep repeating the message, until it feels easy, then find something else and build on the foundation of self-love you are creating.
Find a time when you’ll be able to do it every day, perhaps whilst you’re brushing your teeth and already standing in front of a mirror anyway.
But keep doing it, because you’re worth it…
