In a recent episode of the Finding the Unicorn in You podcast, host Dr. Jaime G. Raygoza led a compelling discussion on self-love with a panel of inspiring women, Ashley Abramson, Mayra Reyes, and Meera Ishaya. These unicorns shared their personal journeys and wisdom around truly loving yourself.
Looking Beyond the Surface
The unicorns delved into the deeper meaning of self-love, beyond just superficial self-care practices. As panelist Ashley Abramson explained, real self-love involves addressing root internal causes, not just relaxing the temporary external effects. It requires mending cracks within, not bandaging them externally.
Discovering Your Unique Path
The panelists agreed self-love begins with looking inward to know yourself more deeply. It means accepting all the different parts of who you are. As Mayra Reyes shared, give yourself the chance to rediscover and evolve through life’s phases. Let go of society’s conditioning about who you “should” be.
Cultivating Unconditional Love
Meera Ishaya noted that self-love is about recognizing your pure essence beyond thoughts, emotions, and body sensations. It is an inner state of unconditional love and acceptance that exists within each of us already. We simply need to take the journey to remember this truth.
Surrounding Yourself with Support
Your relationships reflect your self-love. The unicorns advised choosing supportive people who uplift you and encourage you to be yourself. As Meera said, find those on a similar path of self-discovery. However, as Ashley cautioned, difficult people in your life also offer opportunities for forgiveness and growth.
Ultimately, the panelists emphasized that self-love is a lifelong process of learning, goal-setting, and defining personal success on your own terms. It involves staying curious, embracing change, and giving yourself the chance to evolve. As Ashley stated, “Remember you are worth it.”
The main message was to commit to your own self-love journey. Look within to reveal your inner light. Release external validation and societal conditioning. Accept and honor yourself fully. You are enough.
