My book of poetry, "Stripping- My fight to find Me" is a story of the triumph of the human spirit. It is a story of our deep need for connection and the infinite power of love to heal.

I am energy. I am infinity. But I am also a poet, author, artist. wife, mother, sleep doctor, and attachment and complex childhood trauma survivor. I healed only when I understood I was broken, not a victim. I learnt that everything I needed was within me. And that my inner life was the essence and driving force of my existence.

Where did Self Love Self Care First® come from?

I needed to find meaning in my suffering so I kept thinking, “What truth did I come out of this journey with? How can I share what I know in forms other than what I receive through my poetry? What is the most foundational and fundamental truth about human existence that I discovered to be true in my suffering? That is where SLSCF® comes from.

I discovered that if we do not know our truth, we cannot love ourselves. The pain and suffering of our lives, the false external messages about life, success and achievement that we receive, and the projections and imposed expectations of others we are subjected to, mangle our truth, distract us from our destined path, and cut deep into our body, mind, and soul. They cause us to not pay attention to ourselves, and to how we live our lives. These feelings and beliefs descend into our unconscious and become habitual patterns that hijack our lives.

SelfLoveSelfCareFirst® is the journey of truthful self-examination and acceptance of our truth. Only when we are ready to find value, love, and compassion for our true selves do we begin to live free.

This blog is a celebration of love, stillness, growth, joy, discovery, and the truth. The conversation is honest, the topics are varied, the perspectives are from many angles, but the common thread weaving the discussions together is Self Love Self Care First®.

You are not moving towards any light. There is no light out there. It is inside you. You must move inwards- not outwards to look for it. No one can guide you there. Only you can give yourself the permission to embark on this journey. Only you can reclaim yourself.

Your freedom is in your hands.

Why We Must Wear a Mask


It's Sunita here.

Nature is telling us that we have been talking nonsense. And talking too much.

Too much of nonsense is still nonsense.

So we have been advised to PAUSE and BE QUIET.

The Universe is saying that we must wear masks so we can be reminded that we have only been interested in talking about what we think, feel and see, and have lost our capacity to hear about what someone else may be experiencing. 

We have been too preoccupied with imposing our reality on others.

So we have been advised to STOP in order  to LISTEN MORE, and TALK LESS.

We are interconnected. We are interdependent. There is no escaping this reality of our existence.

That is why we must wear our masks (translates to- "shut up!") and try to understand each other better. Let others talk. Listen to them. Understand them (That does not translate to "you must necessarily agree with them"). 

Connect with them.

When we are fully present and listen, others feel heard. That's when they will respond, and reciprocate by listening to us. And that becomes the birth of a compassionate conversation that connects us to one other.

We can change the world, one conversation at a time.

So just wear your mask.

And stop talking.

Just listen.

Stay Safe,
