How do you show gratitude & love for yourself? How do you tell yourself that you love you? Buying yourself nice things, a spa day, spending time with family & friends?
One of the techniques that Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim teaches is called a Spiritual Shower. While you are in the shower, imagine that you are in a very serene place, whether by a waterfall, on a mountain, wherever you would feel totally relaxed.
As you wash yourself, imagine any stress or anxiety washing away as the water rinses the soap away. Start from the top of your head and work your way down to your toes. The physical motion of washing yourself and the mental image of letting stress go down the drain is reviving to the spirit.
