Unlocking Your Inner Magnetism, A Journey of Self-Love and Manifestation
In part one of my two-part series, Unlocking Your Inner Magnetism, A Journey of Self-Love and Manifestation, I am talking about the importance of self-compassion, how it can make you magnetic, and I include practices you can do to cultivate self-compassion with BONUS meditation/journal prompts to engage with your parts!
I know Valentine’s Day can be overplayed. I also think that we can use Valentine’s Day as an opportunity to nurture our love for ourselves. Of course, this can be done anytime, but why not let V-Day be a reminder we need to give ourselves love and compassion. When we give ourselves true love and compassion, we become magnetic. That magnetism is what we need to manifest the things we want. And that could be love.
To successfully manifest we must be in our worth and in alignment with our True Self and the Universe.
When we give ourselves compassion, show ourselves some love, we manifest the love our True Self wants. We feel worthy of that love and are ready for it.
Self-compassion is an excellent way to feel worthy. Compassion is one of the 8 C’s of True Self. being compassionate towards all parts of us is not only healing, but it makes us magnetic, bringing us closer to our manifestations.
When We aren’t compassionate to ourselves
Think about this, if you are getting down on yourself, this is a part. This parts of you think that getting down on yourself will be motivational in some way, which it is not most of the time. Instead, you feel shame and guilt when you get down on yourself.
Or if you have thoughts that you aren’t good enough, worthy enough, or deserving enough. These parts are the hurt vulnerable parts that are holding onto limiting beliefs. These parts are buried deep, often thought of as shadow parts.
The negative self-talk and limiting beliefs are what keep you out of alignment with your True Self and keep you from manifesting what you want.
Negative self-talk and limiting beliefs, make it difficult to be compassionate towards yourself. But this is what must be done if you want to have a healthy relationship with yourself and if you want to manifest.
So today, I wanted to talk about ways to cultivate self-compassion.
By having self-compassion, you can heal those parts that are in the shadows. By changing your internal dialog, you are shifting the way your parts perceive the world. You are also becoming Self-led, meaning that your True Self is in the lead and the parts are helping you. Instead of the parts taking over while running off invisible scripts, past programming, conditioning, and limiting beliefs. This happens to all of us and perhaps more often than we would like to admit, or even acknowledge.
There is true empowerment with being compassionate towards all parts of yourself. And as I said before, it is one of the 8 C’s of True Self. When you are genuinely compassionate towards your parts you are harnessing True Self energy.
Self-Compassion Practices: simple, everyday practices to develop compassion towards yourself and your parts:
1. Mindful Breathing:
– Practice mindful breathing for a few minutes each day. Focus on the sensation of the breath entering and leaving your body. When thoughts or judgments arise, acknowledge them without attachment and gently guide your focus back to your breath. This practice can foster a state of presence and self-compassion. This is because it is allowing you to access your True Self!
2. Body Scan Meditation:
– Engage in a body scan meditation paying attention to each part of your body in turn, sending it gratitude and kindness. This can help you develop a compassionate relationship with your physical self and recognize the efforts of your body parts. If you would like to be guided through a body scan, Insight Timer is an amazing app with tons of free meditations on them including body scan meditations. Check it out here!
3. Self-Compassion Break:
– When faced with a stressful situation, take a self-compassion break. This is all about the pause. Stop for a moment, placing a hand over your heart, acknowledging the difficult and stressful situation you are in, and offering yourself words of kindness and understanding, just as you would to a good friend.
Talking to yourself as you would your BFF is a great way to cultivate self-compassion. Most times we are much kinder and understanding of what a friend is going through than we are ourselves.
4. Gratitude Journaling:
– Keep a gratitude journal where you write down three things you are grateful for about yourself each day. This can shift your focus from self-criticism to appreciation, enhancing self-compassion. I really like doing this before bed to shift perspective of the day I just had. It is also nice to show a little gratitude in the morning when you wake up. You don’t have to write them down in the morning, but it is also a great way to shift your focus first thing. So, try it in the morning and at night.
5. Compassionate Letter Writing:
– Write a letter to yourself from the perspective of a compassionate friend or mentor. Address your struggles, fears, and disappointments with empathy and encouragement. This exercise can help shift your internal dialogue to one that is more loving and supportive.
As you write about your struggles, fears, and disappointments, think of these as parts of you holding on to these things. When True Self you can show empathy and encouragement instead of trying to dismiss or shut the part down for struggling or having fears, you are showing these parts that they matter, they are not forgotten, and are healing these parts. It is also teaching the other parts of you how they can start communicating with one another, since often times our parts bicker back and forth like siblings.
These practices are designed to be simple yet powerful tools
To foster a kinder and more compassionate relationship with yourself and your parts. They can be easily integrated into your daily routine and adapted to fit your needs and preferences.
Choose to do one or a few of them, trying out what feels best for you. When you find what you like, stick with it. By doing these practices you are making new neural pathways in your brain. To read more about neural pathways, check out this blog post! This takes time, so don’t give up!
Meditation/journaling exercise focused on self-dialogue to enhance understanding and compassion for your parts.
These prompts aim to enhance understanding and compassion for your parts by encouraging introspection and open communication with different aspects of yourself. This can be done either as a meditation practice or as a journaling exercise. Whatever works for you.
1. Introduction to Your Parts
Choose a part of yourself that has been particularly active or vocal recently. Introduce this part as if it were a character in a story. What is its name, what role does it play in your life, and what are its intentions? Write about how it tries to protect or serve you, even in ways that might not always be helpful.
2. Understanding the Needs of Your Parts
Select a part that often triggers strong emotions or reactions. Reflect on and write about the underlying needs or fears of this part. What is it trying to communicate to you? How might you meet its needs in a healthy and constructive way?
3. A Conversation with a Protective Part
Think of a protective part of yourself (perhaps an anxious part, perfectionist, or a procrastinator part, for example). Have a ‘written conversation’ with this part. Ask it questions such as: Why does it feel the need to protect you? What does it wish you understood about its actions? How does it react to the idea of allowing more Self-energy to lead?
4. Negotiating with Your Parts
Identify a part that you feel is holding you back or creating conflict within your internal system. Write a dialogue between your Self and this part, focusing on negotiation and understanding. Explore what compromises might look like and how you can work together to achieve your mutual well-being.
5. Gratitude Towards Your Parts
Reflect on all the parts that have been active in your life recently. Write a letter of gratitude to them, acknowledging the roles they play and the protection or services they provide. How have they contributed to your growth, and how can you honor their presence while also guiding them with your Self?
These journal prompts
Are designed to facilitate a deeper connection and conversation with the various parts of yourself, promoting self-awareness, compassion, and integration. I encourage you to approach these exercises with an open heart and mind, our parts are valuable and have positive intentions at their core. Some validation, compassion, and empathy go along way!
