“The biggest disease the world suffers from in this day and age is the disease of people feeling unloved.”– Princess Diana
Let’s begin a stroll through the I CAN BE ANYTHING deck consisting of 45 animal affirmation cards starting with: “I AM LOVABLE like the ALPACA”!
Have you ever had the thought that you might not be lovable?
It is staggering the number of people that feel unlovable and consequently, lonely. Now more than ever with lockdowns and of course masks that hide smiles and facial expressions there is a visible barrier between basically everyone you come in contact with which adds to this current reality of escalated isolation.
Does it surprise you that we are creatures that thrive on human touch and connection? Unlike the very independent tiger, our core desires are to be loved, appreciated and to feel like we belong.
^^^ And these stats were gathered before the pandemic!!
When Marissa and I were in the process of choosing affirmations for each animal card in the I CAN BE ANYTHING deck, our intention was to make an immeasurable impact. "I AM LOVABLE" should be a core belief of every single human... taught from the moment we arrive earth-side.
My whole life I have faced fears that I am “unlovable” and “not enough”.
Can you relate?
It’s not until this past year that I’ve been able to heal these limiting beliefs through EMDR therapy which allowed me to pull up the negative self talk by the roots. I successfully reprogrammed my mind with positive affirmations combined with EMDR therapy (eye movement desensitization reprocessing) which helps to reprogram decades of self deprecating thoughts. I was finally able to have a BIG breakthrough and for the first time I have unconditional love for myself.
Our mission at Little Luminaries is to give kiddos the tools early-on when their brains are blank slates and super malleable for instilling a positive inner dialogue. We feel hopeful that children who lay down sturdy foundations from the beginning will evolve into mindful, well-adjusted adults that truly love themselves.
Doesn't this feel like one of the most important missions in the world?!
