Extract from the Book ‘You can Heal Your Life’.


I assume you are already saying, “I approve of myself” almost nonstop. This is a powerful foundation. Keep it up for at least a month.


Now take a pad of paper and at the top write, “I Love Myself; Therefore….”

If you can work with partner, do so. Hold hands and alternate saying, I love myself: therefore…” The biggest benefits of doing this exercise is that you learn it is almost impossible to belittle yourself when you say you love yourself.
