For this journal experience let us begin to unpack what self-love and commitment really means to you. Prepare your mind, body and spirit by engaging in meditation first. This can be done sitting, standing or walking. Choose the open that supports you in this moment.
While in meditation, ask your subconscious mind to share with your conscious mind how you truly feel about yourself. What you love about yourself and what you might hate or loathe. Let the texture of your breath morph and change as the insights come to the surface. Allow the pictures to emerge if they do and just notice them. Try to release attachment to what comes up and limit the emotional weather by re-directing your attention back to your breath.
Have a pen and paper handy to capture any specific details that arise when you come out of meditation.
Set your insight timer for 10 minutes and begin.
Sit for a few moments in silence. Let the information you received and shared move through you. Sit without thinking or moving too much. Settle the heart and mind and look upon yourself with soft compassionate eyes. This may be difficult to do initially but you are willing to do the hard stuff - remind yourself of that. And because you are willing to do what is hard and uncomfortable in order to change your current state, you are willing to be soft and compassionate with yourself.
You are loved.
