Today we’re talking about transforming our lives and our relationships through unconditional self-love.

Earlier this week, many people celebrated Valentine’s Day with a loved one. And while most people consider this special day of the year one based solely on romantic love, I like to think that Valentine’s Day is also about the love of family, friends, and of ourselves as well. Love is a multifaceted concept that expands far beyond the feelings we may have for just a significant other, and it really is the magic of life.

Yet, almost all of us struggle with love to some degree. Some days we think it’s our worst enemy, and other days it’s our greatest blessing of all. Some of us don’t feel worthy of love from ourselves or others, or we subconsciously sabotage our relationship with ourselves through negative self-talk, a lack of self-acceptance, and resistance to healing old wounds. So, what do we need in order for love to work, and what needs to be present for love to grow and expand into all it can be?

My guest today, Ellen McCarty, joins me to discuss the components of a great relationship, how we can make love last, and why being gentler with ourselves and practicing unconditional self-love can empower us, transform the way we live our lives, and also significantly impact the way we love and communicate with others. She explains how unconditional self-love helps us to remain grounded, live our best life, and make the world a better place.

“Everything is an inside job and it really starts with self-love, because when you truly love yourself, you can love others even better. And it’s not just self-love – it’s unconditional self-love, first.” – Ellen McCarty

About Ellen:

Born and raised in Massachusetts, Ellen McCarty is one of 9 children.  

Her early career was spent in teaching hospitals, primarily running clinical, surgical, and medical cancer programs for Tufts, Harvard, and Brown Universities.  During these 13+ years, Ellen would spend her own time visiting with hundreds of terminal patients and their families and discovering what we humans really value in the end.

The second half of her life brought her to San Diego, where she has been a Business and Marketing Strategist by trade, for more than 2 decades, Ellen has been a one-on-one coach for thousands of entrepreneurs all over the world.  

Her skill, experience, and expertise aside, she consistently found herself more interested in why people were failing to achieve their desires, what was in their way, and how she could help them allow and receive the success, sustainability, and expansion they desired.

For the last 7 years, Ellen has worked with private clients helping them to identify and release their resistance, transform their disempowering beliefs, reconnect with their authentic self, and manifest both business and personal fulfillment.  

I really want to help others to  ‘Live a Great Life….Even when Life is Life-ing.  You know, suffer less, enjoy more!’
