Ahhh Valentine’s Day. Whether or not you revel in the love letters, bouquets of flowers and boxes of chocolate or ‘bah humbug’ your way through the “Hallmark Event”, I can’t help but think that it’s a nice little reminder for all of us to nurture the love in our relationships.
We all have relationships. Whether they are with our family, friends or lovers, they are all sacred friendships that require a certain amount of energy so that they remain positive. One relationship that we often forget about is the relationship we have with ourself. This is the most important of them all, and the one from which all other relationships stem from. It you don’t love yourself, how can you truly love someone else?
With Valentine’s Day in the air and red roses everywhere you turn, what a great excuse to indulge in a loving, nurturing, self-caring ritual.
Step 1: Head to your local florist and treat yourself to a bouquet of fresh roses.
Step 2: Place them in a vase on your bedside table, coffee table or wherever else you’ll be able to enjoy them.
Step 3: Dim the lights of your bathroom, close the door and run a warm bath. Add a splash of Be Genki Sensuality Bath and Shower Oil to the bath and slip in. For the next 20 minutes focus on your breathing and let yourself go. With every breath you take, breathe in relaxation and love, and breathe out your worries and judgments of self.
Step 4: Slowly step out of the bath, pat yourself dry and apply a light layer of Be Genki Sensuality Body Oil to rehydrate and soften the skin. As you work your way up from your feet to your arms, be grateful for every part of your body and practice “positive self talk” by thanking your body for all that it is and for all that it has the potential to be.
Step 5: Curl up on the couch (or bed) in front of your bouquet of fresh flowers and take a moment to enjoy the beauty and vibrancy of nature.
Much love for a happy, healthy and nurturing month filled with self-love
