Love yourself, Beautiful Soul!

We often forget that our lives begin with us, so much so that we put ourselves last on our list.  Many of us rarely make time to nourish our beings or check in with ourselves regarding how we feel about the things we do each day.

Creating the lives we wish to live begins with self – self-love and self-acceptance. 

You are a beautiful soul with the power to create your world as you wish it to be. You are worthy of living an abundant, blessed life, no matter what you have experience in your past.  See yourself through the eyes of Source and accept who you are fully, unconditionally.

Look in the mirror and really see your body.  What do you love about your body? Do you sBeach with a heart drawn in sandee flaws in your body?  Look at your perceived flaws and see them as you wish them to be. Your body supports you every day.  Love it back by focusing on all the things you appreciate about your body.  When you have negative thoughts about your body, focus on what you love about your body instead.

Take a moment to appreciate your incredible mind. Show appreciation for your capacity to think, reason, make decisions and create.

Perhaps there are parts of you that are outside of societal norms.  Do you fully accept yourself as you are? Show that unique part of you the love it deserves.  It is part of what makes you unique and special. Own that part of you fully and allow it to flourish.  Fully accepting who you are at your core will allow you to live a life that fits you.  Some may reject this notion of you, but your life is YOURS to choose, and should people leave, others will show up to fill the space.

When you love and accept yourself fully, you attract the relationships and people you desire in your life.

Accept who you are in every way. Shower your body and being with the same depth of love you freely give to others.

What will you do to show yourself love today?

Many Blessings,

Santa

RUNNING THROUGH DARKNESS
MEMOIR OF A SPIRITUAL WARRIOR

BY SANTA MOLINA-MARSHALL ‧ RELEASE DATE: MAY 3, 2022

This debut memoir chronicles a woman’s spiritual exploration and growth as she overcame a disturbing childhood and helped others heal.

Brought to America from the Dominican Republic as a youngster, Molina-Marshall should have led a happy life. Her father was a diligent worker, and his large family wanted for nothing. But the author recounts that her dad had a drinking problem and was a serial philanderer. Molina-Marshall’s long-suffering mother left him for a woman. Then it was all downhill for the bright, 12-year-old girl, who was shuttled between foster care and relatives. According to the author, she was sexually abused by the husband of one of her siblings. This resulted in Molina-Marshall becoming alienated and moody. By 15, she simply tried to survive. In her favor were grit and a restless intelligence. She quit school, rented a room, and found a factory job. Time went by, and for a while she was happily married. Yet when her husband left her, her life truly began. She turned to religion for answers but decided that blaming God for her woes was a cop-out. 

In this absorbing and moving memoir, Molina-Marshall’s vivid storytelling is fearless. She frankly discusses the truths she discovered and the indignities she suffered. These admissions are disclosed with a touch of resignation and plenty of bite. However painful, everything she experienced was a lesson, and she bravely realized that she was part of the problem: “The fear of being hurt, rejected, or abused often led to me feeling lonely and misunderstood. No one knew the agonizing pain I felt being trapped in my thoughts and anger. I was becoming my biggest threat.” 

The author skillfully recounts her intricate spiritual journey. To deal with her psychic wounds, she searched for an inspirational system. Her open-mindedness led her to the interfaith concept—cherry-picking from various religions and spiritual movements, yoga, and Indigenous beliefs as a way of finding peace. Along with her female partner, she built a therapy practice, making use of every spiritual element that aided her and others. The road was bumpy, and she found that women of color in same-sex relationships were not welcomed everywhere. To do good works—and finally live on her own terms—she effectively overcame bigotry.

An engrossing, cathartic account of empathy and success through determination and confidence.
