04 Feb Louise Hay and Cheryl Richardson, we are together at Miraval
I arrived last night at the Miraval Resort in Tucson Arizona with Claire, excited to meet Louise Hay my long time spiritual mentor. We got to the resort late for the first workshop which is about giving myself extreme self care. I thought to myself oh I am so good at this subject I have nothing to learn here. Wrong. As different woman took the microphone to describe how their fears almost kept them from coming to this nurturing event I realized that I too felt the same way. Fears like I should be giving this time to my family. The guilt that was in the room was over whelming. I thought wow I do not feel that guilty. I do deserve pleasure in my life. That is when my mentor Louise shared some of her favorite affirmations…
Life loves me
I move from pleasure to pleasure
And I look for pleasurable things throughout the day, like a beautiful sky, a friendly dog and a great tasting meal.
I let go of not being good enough…. But I still feel not good enough I need to practice these affirmations, I am not perfect… and the room laughs…
My mentor is not perfect! Wow I thought after thirty years of doing these affirmations she would have dissolved the untrue story of I am not good enough. It must be at the core of her like it is me in an energy form that does not really ever leave.
I will be sharing more insights from this week long journey.
