Atma prema means "Unconditional love of Self" in Hindi. Sanskrit define it as discipline we should practice. Atma prema or Self Love is much more than just liking for the way we look or think. Its a pure, unconditional love for our essence, our soul, our divine self.
“The river that flows in you, also flows in me.”
We recognise others in ourselves and ourselves in others. We are all expressions of One Life.
But how can we love others if we do not love our true self first? You can't pour from an empty cup, can't you? In order to be able to give and care of others, we need to fill ourselves first.
Give yourself this beautiful gift of self love and self acceptance and commit to love yourself dearly, just like you deserve to be loved.
There is lots of small & big self love rituals you can do at home. Yoga, bath full of hot water & foam, journaling, meditation, favourite herbal tea (or glass of Rose :) Turn off blue screens and bright lights & lit your "Self-Love" candle.
