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.
TWBH, The Way Back Home- Indelible Ink for Eternal Truths
It's Sunita here.
We experience the world, and every single moment of our life, only, from this place.
No one else knows what it looks like, or feels like. Only we do. No one else gets to experience our inner world. It is the place where we are truly alone.
But it has become a place for many of us where we are lonely, and in pain. So, we abandon it, thereby abandoning ourselves.
That is understandable. Because, who, in their right mind wants to suffer?
But, what we must understand is that we will never regain our freedom, peace or connection to ourselves, and others, by exiting or ignoring our inner world.
We will instead, put ourselves in a never ending state of exile.
There is only one way back home.
The Way Back Home is inwards.
We must find love and compassion for ourselves there. We must reconnect with our inner lives. We must find the infinite beauty that lies within us. We must reclaim the love that resides in us.
We must become love.
We must understand that we were created to be enough.
Enough in every state of being.
Enough at every stage of life.
We are precious.
We are divine.
Thank you, Dan, for your exquisite artistry, and our many conversations.
Until next time,
