A major key to sharing love with people is loving yourself. Not only will self-love let you send love out into the universe, but it is needed to live a happy life. Without a healthy amount of self-love in your heart a dissonance will infect you. It will impact how you see yourself, how you see others, and how you interact with the world. Self-love is an essential force in every life.
Diminished self-love will effect three major points in the way you see yourself; your self esteem, your body image, and your general happiness. Once all three of these points have been corrupted it will take a great deal of effort to build up your self-love once again. With a heaping helping of self-love your self esteem will be protected. However, if you were to lose that protection dissonance will creep into your self esteem and chip away at your confidence and self worth. Your body image is intimately tied to your self esteem. That being the case, if this dissonance worms its way into your self esteem your body image will be the next point under attack.
A skewed body image is pretty common these days. An effective way to combat this is by enforcing your sense of self-love. As you come to love yourself you will also come to love your body. Once your self esteem comes under attack from dissonance then negative thoughts will enter your mind regarding body image. You will have thoughts like “I'm ugly,” or “no one will ever love me because I'm fat.” By building up your self-love you will realize what nonsense these thoughts really are. Even if you are not classically beautiful you do deserve love and you are loved. Everyone who is entering into the state of love-mania loves you regardless of what you look like. When you accept this fact your self-love will start to grow and, eventually, burst forth sweeping away all of the dissonance existing in your heart and mind. This is the point when the path to happiness will be revealed to you.
In order to be a completely happy person you need a well rounded sense of self-love. In the process of strengthening this self-love you will also repair your self esteem and body image. All the while driving any dissonance out of yourself. You see, happiness is a product of self-love. By increasing your self-love you will naturally become a happier person. I experienced this when I began focusing on my own self-love.
When I was in the process of forming Manic Love Co. I had an epiphany; the orgasm is a physical manifestation of love. That being the case, masturbation is ultimately an expression of self-love. Now, in order for me to get the most out of expressing my self-love I needed to change a few things in my life. In particular, I needed to cut porn out of my masturbation. By doing that I vastly improved the experience. The sensations that I was feeling in my body became more intense because I was now focusing on them. I also became more aware of the stimulation that fully satisfied me. This positively impacted sex with partners as well. Porn had trained me to externalize my focus during sexual actions. By internalizing everything sex became a much more intimate act. I was focused on what I was feeling as well as my partners and how they were making me feel. Improving my sexual experience had surprising effects on the rest of my life.
By shifting my focus from external to internal sexual acts changed for me. I began making love to myself and to others. At that point my self-love began to strengthen and it grew. I became more confident, happier and I began to feel the love that I have for myself; the dissonance was being pushed out of my being. As my self-love grew I noticed that my love for others was also growing. This is a natural chain of events, if you have strong self loathing then you will project that loathing onto others. However, if your self-love is strong then you will project a feeling of love onto everyone and eventually that feeling will become genuine. In order to achieve this the first step is to have fulfilling masturbation sessions. These can be done by minimizing your porn consumption and focusing on yourself. In other words, stop giving strangers on TV your attention and pamper yourself. Once this becomes a habit you will begin to see not only your self-love growing but you will see love spilling into the rest of your life.
Nurturing your self-love is an essential part of spreading a wave of love across the world. By loving yourself you will have a higher self esteem. You will love the way you look more than ever. This will all lead to you being a happier person. This can be accomplished by strengthening, and growing, your sense of self-love. One way to do this is by shifting your masturbation methods into making love to yourself. This will require you to internalize your focus during making love to yourself. Eventually, your self-love will grow to a point where you are awash in love in every part of life. Love will begin to influence how you see yourself, how you see others and it will change how you interact with the world. When this starts happening you will realize how spectacular life can be.
