One of the most remarkable characteristics of gold is its ability to be forged into almost anything without breaking. Applying this same principle to The Golden Rule, “Do unto others as you would want done unto you,” I created a few new rules from the same vein.
The first two, and my favorite, are The Golden Rules of Self-Honoring (or Self-Love), designed for those souls that always seem to put everyone else before themselves. They are the following.
“Love yourself the way you wish to be loved.”
“Allow others to love you the way you wished to be loved.”
Don’t be fooled by the simplicity of these rules, they are powerful.
Some additional Self-Honoring Exercises you may enjoy include:
Breathe in Love
1. Find a comfortable place to relax, Imagining your breath is nothing but love.
2. Inhale, imagine being filled with light and love
3. Exhale, imagine that same light and love going out into the world.
4. Repeat for as long as you wish.
Recite your New Golden Rules as Affirmations
“I love My Self the way I wish to be loved.”
“I allow others to love me the way I wished to be loved.”
Take Time for Self-Honoring Inquiries
“What’s the most loving thing I can do for myself right now?”
“How could I be a little more loving to myself right now?”
Create a Self-Honoring To-do List
Write down at least two ways you will love (take care of) yourself today.
