This book dares you to experience the liberation, healing, and empowerment that come when you make a spiritual practice out of learning to love yourself. The Self-Love Superpower shares thirty-four specific, hands-on action steps designed to help you start the journey from paralyzing self-criticism to expansive self-adoration. But this journey is a spiral and it is not without its challenges. That's why author Tess Whitehurst is here to offer you support, personal stories, and encouragement as you create a kindness alarm, conduct a self-care audit, engage in a centering and balancing meditation, heal relationship dynamics, and so much more. Each chapter contains accessible exercises, meditations, rituals, self-care practices, and journaling prompts to help you integrate the information in an experiential way, exploring themes such as:
energetic hygiene • grounding and clearing • shielding your energy • boundaries • shadow work • chakras • stepping into your truth • feng shui • clearing clutter • body positivity • intuitive eating
Whether you want to develop greater respect and belief in yourself, connect with your deeper intuitions, or regain a sense of excitement and enthusiasm for the things you care about, this inspiring guide shares the tools to help you get there.
"The true wisdom of magick is often hard won. Self-love is such a key to the mysteries, and while it sounds easy, it isn't. Self-love is one of the great mysteries, and Tess Whitehurst opens the gate to mystery in this heartfelt, fun but serious look at awaking the super power we all need."—Christopher Penczak, cofounder of the Temple of Witchcraft and author of Ascension Magick, Magick of Reiki, and the Plant Spirit Familiar
"I have long believed that self-love is a magical superpower that can improve any area of someone's life. As readers and students we are always in good hands with Tess Whitehurst, and in The Self-Love Superpower, she gives us all permission and practical action steps to love ourselves more right here, right now. With vulnerability and insight, Tess leads us to a more nourishing, gentle, empowered way of being with ourselves and the world."—Tanya Carroll Richardson, author of Self-Care for Empaths, Angel Intuition and Are You an Earth Angel?
"The Self-Love Superpower is a beautifully personal addition to Tess Whitehurst's positive and empowering catalog. It's more than an instruction manual, it's also a book of Tess's own journey to loving herself and all the ups, downs, and acid trips (!) along the way. It's brimming with self-awareness, imperfect moments and humour, without losing the trademark Tess Whitehurst sparkly magical vibe I've always loved about her books. Whether you're a witch or lightworker, new to spirituality, or going through a healing journey of your own, this book can help you find the beauty and power that already lies within."—Paige Vanderbeck, host of The Fat Feminist Witch Podcast and author of Green Witchcraft and The Grimoire Journal
