Love thyself is another way to say self love. Love is a powerful energy that is within us and all around us. God is love and love is the only reality.

"Love, love, love thyself." Channeled by Maureen

Self love or love thyself is essential for us to live as the spirit beings that we are, having a human experience. So many of us focus on seeking love from outside of ourselves through our relationships with parents, friends, intimate partners and children. We all want to give and receive love.

When we by-pass self love and search for love from others first, we hinder our growth and development as spiritual beings. The place to begin first and foremost on our spiritual journey is love thyself.

Love and Accept Yourself

Love and accept yourself just as you are. Self love begins with embracing yourself more fully, the good, the bad and the ugly.

Love and accept yourself and all aspects of you without judgement.When you accept yourself completely you honor your body, honor your mind, honor your emotions and honor your spirit.

We are all flawed as humans. When you can see the positive and negative parts of yourself you can love and accept yourself more completely. The natural result then is to love and accept others more easily, just as they are without conditions. This then translates into more awareness of our Divine nature, our connection to each other, all of nature and Mother Earth for we are all one.


Write the affirmation "I love myself" slowly on a piece of paper, line by line. As you write stay focused on each word and it's true meaning like a meditation.

Pay attention to how you feel as you write these words of your affirmation during this self love healing process. When feelings of pain, doubt, resistance or limiting beliefs come up simply turn the page over and jot them down.

For example you may feel "I don't deserve love because I am not good enough." Jot the feeling down and do not give it anymore energy. Go back to the front side of the page and continue to write the affirmation "I love myself."

As more fear or limiting thoughts rise up from inside, continue to turn the paper over and write them down. This simple process is powerful because you are feeding your subconscious mind a positive statement of truth or affirmation of self love.

You also get to see your unconscious blocks to loving self. By seeing your inner blocks you are shedding light on them, allowing a healing to occur in the presence of your own self love. Love is the healer, the purifier. Love brings up everything unlike itself especially when you use the "I love myself" affirmation.

Self love bridges our humanity with our divinity. When we love ourselves we are loving Spirit and all of our brothers and sisters in the universe. The pathway to being your true essence and living it to love thyself.

For more than 28 years I have been helping many people from all walks of life and across the world, including India, China and England. Some clients prefer to come see me in person for an Intuitive Reading. However, the majority of my clients call me for phone sessions.

Intuition is unlimited as God is unlimited so it doesn't matter whether you are in the same room with me or in Hong Kong! My intention is the same - to serve as a channel of clarity and healing to assist you in all areas of your life. Doing this work makes me truly happy and I blessed to be able to help people and do what I love.

When you set up an Intuitive Reading in Seattle or a phone session with me, it's best to write down your questions ahead of time. This helps focus your intention on what it you want guidance for in your life.

At the beginning of your Intuitive Reading, I go deep into a meditative state and ask Spirit to allow me to be a clear and pure channel of love, healing and guidance for you. The answer to each question flows through me in words and pictures and the information received is spiritual in nature, yet practical for every day life.

I encourage all of you to:

Live your true potential
