Valentine Message from Louise Hay

February 18, 2019

Unexpectedly for a couple of hours, I entertained a four-year old girl I’d never met.

As her little arms playfully twisted her top around her torso making the words on it illegible, I asked what her tee-shirt said.

In a flash, she replied: “Cute girl, I love you!”

It actually said “NIKE.”

I realized she heard that so often that this was the first thing that came to her mind and out of her mouth. She was cute, and she was loved. And this is how she carried herself, too.

Everybody loves Gracie, and I had fun during the unplanned interruption in my schedule to play with her… including eating tasty “pumpkin pie” and “strawberries” that were actually small, spiny, massage balls. What a great imagination!

In contrast, a woman, who’s had a lot of bumps in her life, told me what she thought about herself. I won’t write the language she used to describe her self-concept. It was on the line of “I am a worthless piece of ____. ”

This was exacerbated by employers who treated her this way.

She had a difficult time holding a job, that is until she started to see herself in a more positive light and wasn’t willing to put up with abusive treatment. She decided to restart her own business, and her client list of nice people is now growing.

Like attracts like.

What do you think about yourself? What kind of success does that opinion attract? You’ll find your answer by looking around at your life.

You can always raise your self-concept.

Start with regardless of whatever’s happened to you or is happening to you now, you’re deserving of love just because you’re alive.

May this excerpt from Louise Hay’s “You Are Lovable” message posted on February 14, 2011 point the way.

“Here’s my Valentine to you: Stop criticizing yourself—now and forevermore. Love and accept yourself as you are right now. When you do, you’ll blossom in ways that you can’t even imagine. Love will heal you, I promise. Your love for yourself will work miracles in your life.”

I work with people, at any age,
who choose to share their gifts
or business in a BIGGER way
but don’t know how, feel stuck
or would benefit from new tools
or support.

I help them be richly compensated
doing what they love by aligning
with their Soul’s goals.
