5. Dana Damara Self love gives you strength to leap fearlessly into the unknown and disengage yourself from a relationship or circumstance that isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feeding your highest purpose. It shines light on every dimension of yourself: every dark corner, every secret, every person who played a part of your past. Self love understands that you will forever be a work in progress.

My self-love alchemy: explore my inner landscape to discover my soul; honor the delight and pain inside my heart; embrace tragedy and ecstasy of my humanity; embrace my wild creativity and my fears; live my open-hearted truth. Compassion. Touch. Expression. Courage. Movement. Mindset. Sound. Nutrition. Breath. Nature. Deep soul healing. CHRISTELARCUCCI.COM

Self love means granting myself the right to steal precious time to nourish, heal, and restore my body, mind, and spirit. Such time may be spent in solitude or with loved ones. Daily musts: meditate, laugh, eat, sleep, water, fire, music. When possible: dancing, cooking, baking, writing, nature, skipping, running. CAROLYNCOLLINSPHOTOGRAPHY.COM PHOTO: BRIAN HAMM

Self love is opening into my practice each and every day, in a way that creates ripples across my highest self to others. Giving thanks for the gifts already received, accepting those that arrive in the moment, and being open to all that have yet to come. BEALOVEYOGA.COM
