Love is an incredibly powerful word. It is defined as deep and ardent affection. The passionate desires and affection felt by lovers. The condition of being closely tied to another by affection. The act of caring and giving to someone else…having someone’s best interest and well-being as a priority in your life.
We think about love. We sing about it. (We all have our favorite sappy love songs now, don’t we.) We dream about it. We lose sleep worrying about it. When we don’t have it, we search for it. When we discover it, we don’t know what to do with it. When we have it, we fear losing it. But we have to have it. It drives us.
We put a great deal of energy into loving others. A selfless love puts their needs first. As women, we often place the needs of those we love above ours. It is our nature. Our children. Our husbands and partners. Our friends and family. We desire to make them happy, to give them our best.
Do you put that same level of energy into loving yourself? Do you believe that you are worthy of your own love? Not ego, but simply coming to accept you and all your imperfections as perfectly beautiful, inside and out. That’s what my Goddess Collection is all about – each of us has a goddess within us and we need to accept ourselves as a goddess because every time I read about one, I realize how powerful she is.
Venus is the Roman goddess of love and beauty. She has come to embody the female attributes of life. She is the essence of love in all its forms. She is said to have the power to open the heart and bestow blessings. Venus guides us to connect with her energies and to feel empowered as a beautiful, radiant female.
Let you inner Venus remind you that you need to love yourself because you are the most important being in your life.
I accept and love myself just as I am with all my strengths and imperfections.
I allow myself to give and receive love.
