Dear friends, I wanted to welcome you to a new year with the Soulmate Project. I began this group in 2007 to help people searching for true love to come together to share their views and experiences.
We have found time and again that the key to having the love we want is to love and honor ourselves, first.
Let 2010 be the year you make some big dreams come true! If you are searching for true love, or in a relationship where you are not being treated well, learning to honor yourself is the key to success.
We may say we want love, success, and happiness, but we don’t always back up our dreams with self honoring actions.
Without self-honoring, we have no foundation to uphold or contain love, self esteem, and true potential. Someone can love you with more heart than you ever imagined, but where will it go if you have no internal mechanism for recognizing pure love? The universe can shower you with opportunities, but you will miss the best plums on the tree because you won’t think you deserve to reach for them.
Self Love Meditation: Take 10 to 20 minutes every morning to center yourself and meditate to a piece of music that feels heart-opening to you. One that I like is this moving and soul stirring chant, “Open My Heart,” by Ana Hernandez and Ruth Cunningham, off their CD HARC: Inside Chants.
Hear this wonderful chant "Open My Heart" at www.myspace.com/anahermusic.
