Nurturing Your Inner Self

May 01, 20243 min read

Welcome to our Marriage War and Peace blog for May!

This month, immerse yourself in an exploration focused entirely on your Truth in the Name of Love. From personal reflections and practical tips, join in on a journey to renew and rediscover the incredible woman within you, nurturing a sense of balance and fulfillment.

What do I mean by Truth in the Name of Love?

It's a phrase I've come up with that refers to embracing who you are and how you know yourself to be. It’s an inner truth that’s aligned with your core values and guided by the principles of love and compassion. 

Embracing your Truth in the Name of Love means prioritizing self-awareness and integrity in your thoughts, words, and actions. This will ultimately lead to greater fulfillment, connection, and harmony in your life and rmarriage.

Doesn't that sound like a beautiful way to live?

In this month’s article, we’ll focus on:

  • Jeff and Diana’s Truth in the Name of Love

  • 4 fun inner self activities

  • The Gifts of Imperfection

What’s Your Truth in the Name of Love?

Each couple I work with is unique, and there is no one-size-fits-all approach to helping them discover their Truth in the Name of Love. 

So, when I start working with a new battle-weary couple, I tell them my golden rule:

As long as it's your truth and as long as it's loving, we can work with that because that is your combined Truth in the Name of Love.

Usually, when I say this, they look at me in disbelief. 

"That's it?" Jeff asked.

"Yes."

"Are you saying that we're free to come up with any truth that works for us as long as it fits within those parameters?" asked Diana.

"As long as it's your truth," I reiterate, "and not some other truth you're trying to make fit or work for you, yes. That's why you're here — to discover what that truth is."

Watching battle-weary couples shed the weight of societal expectations and past grievances to authentically express their love is truly transformative. And when they start speaking their truths to each other lovingly and respectfully, what generally emerges is something unexpected. Like a phoenix rising from the ashes of marital discord, the new love rising then becomes their shared Truth in the Name of Love. 

So, ladies, what's your Truth in the Name of Love?


Four Fun Activities

Since you’ll never know how you’ll find your Truth in the Name of Love, here are four fun activities you can incorporate this month to increase your inner awareness:

  1. Intuitive Writing

    Access the wisdom of your inner self by engaging in intuitive writing. Light a candle, take several deep breaths to center yourself, then start asking your inner self questions. Then write down what she has to say. 

  2. Self-Care Bingo

    Create a self-care bingo card with various activities that nurture your physical, emotional, and mental well-being. Each day, close your eyes and put your finger on one of the squares. Then, have fun completing what it says to do.

  3. Inner Self Vision Board Creation:

    Create an external vision board that reflects your inner self’s vision aspirations and dreams. Use images, words, and symbols to visualize your Truth in the Name of Love that will remind you of your inner knowing. 

  4. Gratitude Jar:

    Start a gratitude jar and make it a daily practice this month to write down things you're grateful for, big or small. At the end of each day, place a note in the jar expressing gratitude for something that brought joy, comfort, or meaning to your day.

Helpful Resource

If you're interested in creating a deeper connection with your Truth in the Name of Love, I recommend Brené Brown’s book The Gifts of Imperfection.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

"As a result of working with Veronica, I live in peace without anxiety or panic. I love where I live, and I work out and have taken pride in the healthy meals I prepare for myself. Veronica is the only person who has helped me achieve any lasting results. It’s been nearly 2 years since our first session and I am feeling so stable and at-peace. I cannot recommend her enough, as she changed my life."

- Happy Client

"My marriage was in shambles and I felt like I had hit rock bottom. I was desperate for a solution that didn't involve medication. My husband refused to go to therapy with me, which left me feeling hopeless. We were constantly fighting and didn't know how to break the cycle. Since Veronica came into my life, my family is in a much better place. I no longer take my husband's behavior personally, and we're able to enjoy each other's company. I hear my kids giggle every day, and it fills me with joy. I'm forever grateful for Veronica's guidance and support."

- Forever Grateful

On the brink of divorce, we had tried therapy and it didn’t work. Our marriage was a roller coaster and I felt emotionally drained every day. When I got pregnant I had to do something because I didn’t want to bring my baby into our hot mess. Veronica diagnosed was was going on in our first session! My husband and I have helped each other heal so much in our sessions with Veronica. We are a team now and it feels so good to have our son being born into a peaceful home.

- Happy Couple
