* Self-Love and Relationships
“I love everyone, and you’re next!”
The refrigerator magnet displaying these exuberant words describes the loving nature of its owner, my friend Lilly. Lilly exudes an infectiously loving vibration toward everyone she meets. Her smiles, embraces, and energetic connections melt even the coldest of hearts, for they feel her sincere full-presence and compassion. Harmony reigns in Lilly’s friendships and marriage, for they’re built on a foundation of respect, appreciation and love – for her loved ones and herself.
Such a strong expression of outward-flowing love comes from deep inner-love and high self-esteem. Lilly’s effusive love for others is a result of her exploration and appreciation of her own unique body, mind and soul. By honoring the truth of who she is, she can more clearly appreciate and respect the individual natures of others. In her interpersonal relationships, Lilly’s self-esteem is demonstrated with not just an open heart, but also with strong boundaries, honest communication and self-care. These enable her to cultivate and enjoy healthy relationships based on truth, mutual-respect and love.
If everyone possessed Lilly’s high self-esteem, harmony would reign in all relationships on the planet - from intimate to political. Humanity would head toward another Renaissance and away from collapse.
Self-love and relationship is the topic that Dr. Lori Buckley and I recently discussed on her podcast show, Looking for Love.

She also believes that strong self-esteem as a necessity for a healthy relationships.

Dr. Lori, who is down-to-earth and overflowing with positive energy, provides a psychological perspective, while I offer information from a spiritual and energetic angle. In this entertaining exchange of insights we hope to inspire and encourage women everywhere to develop a foundation of exuberant self-love, so that all relationships, and indeed, the entire planet, can become more loving.
