Not only do we live in a living universe, but the living universe lives within us.
— Duane Elgin
The truth is that each of us is a wondrous miracle worthy of celebration. As Charles Eisenstein succinctly puts it: "Each person you interact with is an entire universe unto themselves, a Divine Being, unspeakably precious."
However, many of us have a critical voice in our heads that says harsh and false things, obscuring this fundamental truth. Incorrectly believing ourselves to be fatally flawed, unloveable, or unwanted, we can have difficulty accessing the joy, confidence, and generosity that are our birthright.
Below you'll find a kind of poetic invocation, a chant, a soul tonic to help counteract self-negating tendencies, and to seed a radical, empowering reset of how you may think about yourself.
I've included an audio recording of me reading it.... so you can just close your eyes and receive these words, letting them seep deeply into your bones and imagination!
Note: if you see a black bar that says "download file", click on it and a new window will open where you can listen to the audio file (you don't actually need to download anything).
