Bask in the light of loving-kindness and fill your heart with peace.
You have a light in you, Dear One, and oh, how the world longs to see it.
The trouble is, some days you can't even see it. Maybe it's your inner critic telling you you're worthless, unlovable. Or your past, the little aches and big hurts you don't know how to let go of.
Restlessness, fear, sadness, shame. You've had enough of it. Now, you're ready to feel light, free, and more decisive about where you're headed.
Meet the Beloved Flame Practice.
And this is how.
The Beloved Flame Practice is a 4-week meditation and journal practice all about nurturing the light in you so you can live a happy, prosperous, loving life - authentically.
A life of seeing abundance, not lack.
A life of looking upon yourself with love, not criticism.
A life of meaning and purpose, not emptiness and restlessness.
This is the practice that returns you to your truest self and your natural connection to the world. It's the how of clarity and compassion.
Then one day, I looked in the mirror and found a stranger there.
That day, I finally additted that I'd created a monster. Sure, everything was "fine" on the outside, but on the inside, I was dying. I decided that if I was ever going to find the peace I'd been seeking, I would have to choose (and trust and love) me.
In the last few years, I've figured out that there's something in me worth nurturing. It's the spark of hope when I fail, that steady conviction when no one gets what I'm doing, the reliable breath that anchors me to the truth of who I am.
Through trial and error, I've learned that when you find a little spark like that, you have to let it grow, and that takes intention. Attention. S p a c e. It means loving the part of me that's scared, even when I'm feeling lost and offering whatever I have to feed that fire, even when it feels like I'm so far from where I want to be.
This is how the Beloved Flame Practice began.
The Beloved Flame Practice is based on my years of working as a psychologist. I specialize in positive psychology, mindfulness, meditation, and self-compassion, and I've clocked thousands of hours helping others find their own path to inner peace and love.
And this is the practice I've used in my own life to call upon a healing, loving energy for myself and all beings.
I use it when I'm feeling lost, fragile, or frozen. These are the questions that help me remember what it is I intend to do with this life, and these meditations bring me back to my truest self, open, loving, and certain of my connection to others.
