As babies, we have a deep understanding that we’re completely loved and undoubtedly lovable.

But as we grow older, and we experience hurt, rejection or struggle with the realities of day-to-day life, we lose this knowledge and self-belief.

In this 3-minute video, Deepak Chopra takes us back to this childhood innocence by reminding us that we, in our essence, are made to love and be loved.

So to carry on with this message, we have a challenge for you. In the morning, as you stand in front of the mirror brushing your teeth, try implementing another daily ritual:

Look deep into your eyes, and tell the image staring back at you that you love them unconditionally.

While this may be difficult to start with, we promise you’ll be on the path to connecting with this inner knowledge.
