Guest Post: Self Love in 6 Days by Amanda Rae

We’ve all been there at some point. That space where you feel so alone and disconnected from your loved ones that you can just barely make it through the day. You can’t stop thinking about how tired you are, or how good it would be to take a little nap.  It can be difficult to peel yourself out of bed in the morning, even after you’ve pressed the “snooze” button at least twice.

You hold back the tears when you see your significant other, knowing that you just can’t express your deepest sorrows. You wish you felt more feminine, soft, and gentle. You crave to feel the love of your friends and family within your soul. You’re tired of the days of shrugging off the compliments and praise.

You’re ready to feel. You’re ready to connect. You’re ready to unleash your inner goddess.

When we are not feeling connected with ourselves, it is impossible to connect with others. In order to share love with our friends and family, we have to make it a consistent practice to show love to ourselves. However, when life leaves you stressed and overwhelmed, it becomes far too easy to lose that intimate space of love and acceptance within ourselves. We begin to blame ourselves and beat ourselves up. However, this only makes things worse. The further we step out of love with oursleves, the less likely we are to be able to experience the love and joy in our life.

The following is  a simple process you can use whenever you need to amp up your self-love. It will help you unleash your love, feel loved, and truly connect with your friends and family.  This is a process that is most effective if repeated in consecutive days.

The Luxury Bath

What you need:

  • 6 roses – 2 red, 2 pink, and 2 white
  • A candle that calls to you (something pretty or with a beautiful fragrance)
  • Your favorite tea

It’s important that these items are purchased new, specifically for this purpose.

The Steps:

Day One:

  1.  Make yourself a hot cup of your favourite tea.
  2. Draw yourself a hot bath with one cup of Epsom salts (bubble bath optional).
  3. Light your candle, put the petals of ONE of the red roses into the bath while it’s filling
  4. Relax in the bath while you drink your tea and allow yourself to play with the rose petals
  5. Place the rose petals one by one over your heart
  6. Take 11 deep breaths, inhaling through your nose, and exhaling through your mouth
  7. Sink into the bath and allow the rose petals to float on.

Day Two:  Repeat this process above, using the other red rose

Day Three: Use one Pink rose for your Luxury Bath

Day Four:  You guessed it. Use that other pink rose

Day Five: Surprise! Use one white rose

Day Six:  Use your single last white rose for your Luxury Bath

Want to power up the practice? Add a Rose Quartz crystal into the bath or Therapeutic Grade essential oils (such as doTERRA’s Balance, geranium, Lavender, or serenity) to your wrists.

This self care ritual will revolutionize your entire life. Allowing you to feel centred, connected,  and full of love. Please allow yourself to experiment with the Luxury Bath! Add varying flowers, crystals, essential oils, or music. Allow yourself the pleasure of taking a luxury bath every week and notice how grateful you feel.
