Self Love Promise: Never Settle for Less than Your Heart and Soul Desire
One of the five foundational self love promises is to NEVER SETTLE FOR LESS THAN YOUR HEART AND SOUL DESIRE… are you keeping this promise to yourself?
Watch this video and press pause on the outside world to tune into your inner world and do a check in with your heart.
Most of us never slow down enough to truly tune into our hearts so we have no idea what it truly desires. And sometimes when we do know what it desires we are too scared to actually admit that we desire it. We feel selfish, like it’s too much. Or we feel like it’s impossible or impractical so we just stuff the desire down and get on with our rational lives, settling for less than our heart desire, and in the process letting ourselves down, which is so not self-loving.
The self-love truth is that if you can FEEL it in your heart, then desiring it can only be a good thing that creates more goodness and more love for the world. Even if it’s big. Even if it seems a lot. Even if other people have judgments about it.
The test is to make sure the desire truly comes from your heart and soul, and not your ego, which NEEDS and WANTS things to make you feel safe, enough and like you belong.
How do you do name and claim your heart desire?
Well to start…
1. Watch the video and listen to your heart – and let my words touch your heart, and then listen to what it tells you – you may be surprised!
2. Two, when you state your desire out loud and write it down so you can see it use the words “I DESIRE” instead of I WANT – want denotes lack, like you are not whole without this thing. And when acting in alignment with your heart, you’ve got to do it from a place of you are whole already. For example, saying “I want to be famous” (ego) is different than “I desire to shine as bright as I can, to be the star I am, so that my love and expression can light up this world. I desire to be a shining star whose light people from around the world see and are inspired by.” Or saying, “I want a soul mate so I can be loved” is saying that you are not loved already, which you are. Instead, you may very well desire a partner to share your life with, so “I desire a partner to share my full life with” denotes you already know your life is full before he/she shows up.
3. After you watch this video – claim your current heart’s desire… then EXCLAIM in here, right here on the self-love blog… I will be here to witness it and you and fill it up with the love and light of the full moon!
“My heart and soul SO desire to create a fabulous, inspiring line of self-love clothing that millions of people around the world put on their body that reminds them every time they wear it that they are SOOOOOO loved.”
Okay your turn… post it here… and then keep your self love promise to open your heart to receive it. You don’t need to know how or when, you just have to be open to receive the love in whatever expression the divine has in store for you.
I Desire to open up my heart more by shining my light out into the world and inspire others to shine their light out too. Thank you so much, Christine.

This is my first comment on your wonderful blog. Your video was so inspiring!
Two things surfaced for me: the first is a dream I have been carrying in my heart for years: to open a Yoga and Art Studio for women and young girls, where yoga classed and intentional creativity painting workshops as well as expressive mandalas and SoulCollage workshops would be offered. That it becomes a place for a community of women who have a desire to heal, dance, experiment and fully claim their power and celebrate their beauty could gather.
Then something else came up that took me by surprise: to continue to study with my Teacher, Maestra Shiloh Sophia. She has such wisdom and depth and love and an overflowing heart… I feel that I have still so much to learn from this wonderful inspiring woman.
In Trust and with an open heart,
Isabelle – welcome and so happy to have you post here and share your desire! I was just with Shiloh yesterday and will see her again tomorrow – may her light continue to reflect the LIGHT THAT IS IN YOU and may you remember that your dreams to share such love is already there, just start where you are, even with 2 people. Where two or more are gathered…. witnessing you love xoxo

God Bless You.
Alison – YES to watching this dream continue to unfold into reality and desiring it for yourself without apology xoxo
Help! I don’t think I have ever had a real desire for myself! I early rejected any idea of a “career” and have just drifted pretty much where the men in my life have taken me. Probably doesn’t help that I am an alcoholic and addict, almost 28 years clean and sober. How to FIND that desire, and then put it into words?
Connie love – you start with connecting deeply to your own heart and asking the question, What do I desire? Keep asking it every day until you get an answer. Try a 40 day journal practice where you write the question out and draw or write a response. Or go for desire walks and see what your inner wisdom shows you. Start where you are -you aren’t alone in having this experience. Sounds like in the past you were looking outside for what can only be found inside and now look IN. (also if you haven’t read my book Choosing Me before WE, it’s another great place to start, full of lots of inquiries” xoxoo
I desire to feel the love that flows so freely in my body. I desire to access my inner wisdom that knows exactly what I need to feel cared for and loved and to remember to trust myself… And I desire to wear clothing and accessories that supports me in this process 🙂
Joanna – seeing your body receiving the love in all ways that it desires. xo
One desire of my heart and soul is to own land where I can live, grow delicious organic foods and care for playful frolicking goats! This goes back to when I was 4 years old and when my Grandma asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up I said, “A Vegetarian Cowgirl”! =)
Genevieve – yes to that desire! I am sitting at my friends home/ranch in California right now who had a similar dream when she was a little girl, and now she is receiving it. xo to the vegeterian cowgirl! xoxo
You are full of fire! So passionate!!! And inspiring 🙂
Big LOVE TO you Mathesy!!! xoxo
I desire to become a Kundalini Yoga and Meditation Teacher and I am open to receiving this for myself. I desire to help and heal others.

Someone to learn with and become better persons each day together. Someone to serve the good of the world together. Someone who sees me for who I am. Thank you, Divine Mother, for granting this desire. And thank you to Christine for guiding me in this journey =) much love to you!
