honoring the body temple
In order for us as women to experience our fullest divine feminine potential we must honor our own body as a temple. How do we do that? The short answer is through self-love. By respecting our needs and paying heed to our innermost desires, we begin to live in a way that resonates with who we truly are. In other words, we become authentic and naturally grounded in our true self.
The more we cultivate deep self-acceptance, the more free we become. Our self-worth, and therefore our happiness, no longer depends on outside feedback; the opinions of others. This self-sovereignty is extremely liberating. Our internal state dictates our mood rather than outside circumstances. This brings us effortlessly into alignment while opening doors to higher states of being.
