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.

It's Sunita here.

I was woefully unprepared for the most important love of my life.

As I ventured into the underground world of my unconscious, I encountered locked doors, secret passages, and hidden rooms.

Until my poems started to come to me, I believed I did not have the keys to the mysterious secrets that lay deep inside me.

My poetry has proven to be the lighthouse to the workings of my inner world and has guided me to my innate knowingness. My poems are my expression of the human experience.

Sometimes the words would come to me in a torrent.  Other times they would make me anxiously wait for them to reveal themselves.

But whenever they appeared, they brought me my truth.

My poems have taught me that there is no truth without honesty. 

And that honesty does not exist where there is no courage.

And that for me to be courageous, I have to turn my back on shame.

And strip… 

There is no other way to our truth. And without knowing our truth, we cannot live whole and free. It is never too late to start our journey. Take the first step by reaching out and asking for help. Help is there. But you must take the first step. After all, it's your life. 

If someone else is taking the first step towards you to help, walk towards them. Surrender to your reality and start the work of Stripping. It is a process. But it works. I know that.

I Create New Realities, and Expand Consciousness Through Poetry.

Until next time,

Moving Forwards,
