Here is a post to share a couple of care tips to help to love yourself more, noted by Lorna Byrne in a clip found online I carefully transcribed to share in a blog post. Lorna Byrne is a best selling Irish author of a number of books about angels, including angels in my hair and love from heaven, and is noted to be able to see and talk to angels and guardian angels. Her books are published in a lot of different countries and languages around the world, and I enjoy watching clips of her and interviews with her a lot, as she is always so kind and gentle and has a lot of helpful and assuring tips and ideas. I hope the care tips to love yourself more could be helpful in case you could be interested a lot in self care, and hoping to look after yourself as much as possible 🕊🌸
