Self-love and loving yourself is not a light switch. You can't wake up one morning and go, 'I'm going to love myself today!' You can still try and do that if you want but old programs and subconscious thoughts in the universe are going to bring you contrast and challenge that belief at all times. That's why the beliefs that aren't challenged are the beliefs that never change. - Josh Trent

Power Quotes From The Show

Self-Love Is A Choice


"Self-love is a practice and a choice. Self-love is not something that we can just get inspired to do one day. We can get inspired to start it but it's not a quick switch. The one thing that no one is doing is owning their shit. You have to own it and love it just like you love your partner, your parent, or your sibling. What I've discovered after years of work on this and training is that unless I'm truly living in my body and comfortable in it, no other form of love or healing will come to me. I love where I live in my body because it's all that I have; our bodies are all that any of us actually have." - Josh Trent


Breath Will Lead You To Awareness


"The breath is the only thing that we can be in communion with and we can control. There's nothing in this world that we can be in communion with and control like the breath. We can't beat our own heart, we can't digest our own food; we just can't. We can control what thoughts we indulge in and we can control how we breathe - that's it. If we can breathe then we can choose but if we can't choose then we're probably not breathing. If we're not breathing right then we're a slave to our emotions and then we're a slave to the people that dangle the puppeteer strings in our society but the breath will lead us to awareness." - Josh Trent


The Wellness Journey On Your Terms


"The self-love quotient is a daily practice of surrender and awareness. That sounds super-advanced but it's not; actually, it's really simple but again, it's not easy. The reason why daily practice and awareness are so challenging is because life is very complex and complicated. We might have our whole healing modality planned out for three quarters and have everything listed on a paper and how we're going to heal and love ourselves and then your kid throws up on your lap or your son gets in an accident or you lose a job. Anytime I've ever had a monstrosity of challenge, it's the universe forcing me to grow or retract and there's no shame in that either. You make the change to love yourself in a daily practice of surrender and awareness because you're ready; not when I or anyone else says you're ready." - Josh Trent
