Ready to Take the Journey of Radical Self Love?

What is it like to take the inner journey of life?

To meet with who you really are?

What is it like to walk deep into your inner self, and meet all the resistance, all of the blocks and all of your beliefs and behaviour patterns with absolute love and acceptance?

The inner journey is like a journey into the forest.

And like a forest, we are vast and we contain multitudes.

The forest is an apothecary - it holds all of the plants that we need to heal and to grow; our inner self is also like the apothecary. It holds all the keys to our own growth, self love and blossoming.

But sometimes if we are afraid of what we might find, we don't want to walk into the forest on our own.

We see it as a dark and a scary place full of different monsters who will jump in front of us as soon as we are really alone.

Being Held In Love

What if with the support of loving people, you could take the journey into your inner being without fear?

What if what was to be found there was really an absolute treasure chest of riches? What if, with the support of a guide, and a team of loving beings cheering you on, you were able to lovingly meet yourself today?

And what if, along this journey, you were able to slowly access the parts of you that felt stuck, and with your own open energy and with an attitude of curiosity, love and attention, help them to flow again?

Your YOU-NI-VERSE is You-Nique

You YOU-NI-VERSE is you-nique to you.

You are the only one of you on this Earth, and someone exactly like you will never come again.

Your You-Ni-Verse is an absolutely magical and dynamic place.

Within you are whole worlds – unexplored territories that you may have so far not even imagined.

Whare are you right now on the journey to really knowing who you are and seeing your power, beauty and love?

Are you ready to love yourself TRULY, MADLY and DEEPLY, and in so doing, bring your biggest, wildest gifts into the world?

Self Love is an alchemical process. It's where the fire of your soul meets the material of your body... Sometimes though, our inner monsters that tell us we are 'not enough, too much, too young, too old' are like brambles in our path. Depending on how powerful they are, they might be like a huge blackberry bush, or they might be an unassuming thicket. They get in the way of us seeing our own brilliance, and stop the flow of magic and joy in our life.

Sometimes we need help to cut through the brambles in our way so that we can create what wants to be created through us. There is a powerful force in a collective of people who come together to help each other on this journey to loving yourself more deeply than you ever have before and thus allowing the full flow of your shakti or life force energy to emerge.

When you get the right help and support, suddenly, you can cut through all the brambles in front of you because other beings are assisting by pointing them out. You can see a way through the forest and you start to feel the difference in your body, mind and emotions that comes from radical self love, radical self honouring and radical self respect. When you give these gifts to yourself, you become more empowered to honour, respect and love all beings you come into contact with.

Radical Self Love : Be the Heroine / Hero of Your Own Life

Based on the steps of 'Hero's Journey' as outlined by Joseph Campbell, each month we will take a journey together on the path to Radical Self Love.

Where are you right now on your journey of self love?

Each month, on the date of the new moon, we will take a journey together, into your YOU-NI-VERSE. Structured by the steps on the Hero's Journey - we will discuss what is involved at each step of the Self Love Journey. We will look at the inner stumbling blocks - our monsters, the false gatekeepers (un-beneficial beliefs) and dissolve them together.

You will be guided by Michelle, a long time journeyer on this path of self knowledge and self love.

Each month we will look at one aspect of the Hero's Journey through lense of Radical Self Love. This journey will unfold step by step. You can join the whole journey, or dip in and out.

And we will share with each other where we are at and what we need help with. Support will be offered and you will gain clarity on your next steps.

Our Journeys will take place on the New Moon each month, which brings in the powerful energy of potentiality – space for the new level of Self Love to arise.

We will use the quiet and the dark of the new moon energy to support the inner journey to meeting our true self and together we will learn to love that self truly, madly and deeply.

The first JOURNEY will be on the date of the NEW MOON of JULY 2nd, 2019.

Your Journey Guide, Michelle Elise Taffe

My life's journey is the journey of Radical Self Love. The initials of my name spell out M.E.T : Met. For me this signifies my challenge of meeting myself, and really loving what I see.

Each day I learn to love myself more so that I can bring more of myself to this planet and give more of myself to all the beings I come into contact with. As a child I was deeply sensitive, and so grew up in a world which many times was frightening for me, because it seemed to be based on competition, and struggle. It seemed like I was, through our school system, being trained for a dog eat dog world. And my experience in school was one of sometimes being bullied and I never understood why some people had to try to torment and dominate me in order to feel good. I was a teenager who loved to play Mozart on the piano but was not interested in boyfriends so I had to pretend to be to 'fit in'. Often I was sick so that I would be able to stay home and read books instead of going into the soup of hormones and drama that was high school. Then at age 29, I finally threw in the towel of my life, and went to Thailand to a Buddhist monastery to do a Vipassana retreat when I realised that I was living with a low grade depression that had been with me since I was about 12.

Since then, I have been on a journey of awakening to my beauty and my soul's true purpose, and helping others to do the same.

As an empath I have the ability to sense and intuit things about other people. I am able to see and feel what it is that they are holding back and not saying, or what erroneous beliefs they have taken on. I can walk into a room and I know at once who is angry, who is happy, who is conflicted, who is sad.

The three foundations of my Radical Self Love journey are yoga, meditation, and creativity to support a healthy body, soul and mind.

I have created this Hero's Journey to Radical Self Love to support you in opening to your beauty, presence and power in a group of like minded souls who are all walking this path through the forest together.

My formal qualifications are:

  • Bachelor of Arts (English Literature and Classical History, Monash University, 1997)

July 2nd: The Call to Adventure

The call to adventure is the first stage in the Heroine / Hero's Journey of Joseph Cambpell, where the hero or heroine recognises the call to adventure. In this case, it is the call to the next level of self love and self honouring. We investigate what this call looks like. What does it feel like. What are the invitations, the signs, that we receive when we notice this call. How does it manifest for us? How does this call show up? We look at the lives of some inspiring role models who followed this call.

July 31st: Refusal of the Call

We look at all the reasons why you would refuse this call to radically love yourself. What are the benefits or payoffs of not showing up and not fully loving yourself? How does your subconscious block you from accessing your full potential? How have you refused the call in the past. How do we work with this energy of shying away from our own brilliance? Can we recognise that, as Marianne Williamson says, it is not our inadequacy that scares us but our light...

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.
