The connection to your spirit grows deeper, your senses change, your vibration changes, your intuition grows, you and your spirit align more and more until integration with your higher being and purpose occurs. Day to day life changes, instead of operating from a place of fear or shame or low self-worth you begin to operate from a place of empowerment, faith, balance. Your spirit becomes more familiar and you embody this essence, your true self. You change, and then things around you start to change.
Self-love is a vital practice. If self-love is an elusive quality for you there are several simple practices to connect to that part of yourself and begin to heal that rift. Beyond our immediate self, self-love is vital to all relationships. Healthy relationships with romantic partners, family members, colleagues, friends...all required loving ourselves wholly first. To me this means learning to love and embrace the parts of ourselves we might not like.
