The 2021 60-Day Self-Love Challenge

60-Day Self-Love Challenge starts January 24, 2021

Be a Goddess! You know you are.

Or a God!

You have Divine power within
for the 60-Day Self-Love Challenge.

Its simple format has two parts:

1) Twice a week, tell the other participants what you’re up to: start your week with a post to the group stating your self-care goal(s) for the week. At the end of the week, tell us how you did with those goals. That’s it.

I’ll set up a Google Group for our posts because it’s a private forum easy to use.

If you’re not into further details about the posts, skip down to the other part of the format. I’ll give details about posting again to participants when the group kicks off.

Self-love doesn’t have to be perfect. No beating yourself up if you don’t meet all your goals or fall far short of them. Simply doing your twice a week check-in puts you on the winning team. (Winning team is the first of the football terms in this post. I’ll explain what inspired me to use them in a bit.) In fact, our first week, if you need to start slow and not post, or you pick a small goal for the entire 60 days, cool.

This’ll be a streamlined process, a straight shot to the goal line: the only posts will be telling each other what we’re up to twice-a-week, plus an occasional addition. You’ll get to spend time on you, not focus on others or get swamped by gobs of posts.

Many successful individuals get things done by keeping it simple. My work attracts go-getters so I wanted to offer a streamlined process. No need to respond to anyone’s check-ins. No need usually to read responses to your check-ins because there won’t be any unless needed. It’s not the sort of process that needs much dialogue. If you’d require lots of responses for support, this wouldn’t be the event for you.

That doesn’t mean participants go without support. If you want, post a request to the group for support once or twice. Great. (I might be the person who responds since I’m in the group. … I’m jazzed about taking the challenge!) However, you’re not obliged to respond to requests; I want to keep responses at one or two so we don’t get glutted with posts.

The streamlined process provides a chance to just touch down, then go hit touchdown! (Football analogies are energizing me about this event.)

Here’s more of the power I’ve experienced writing two weekly checks-ins:

* It motivates me to follow through on my goals. Not in the sense of worrying whether someone will judge me for what I do or don’t do. Instead, I become focused.

* Writing my goals out for a group to see somehow makes me clearer about what goals I want.

* The writing inspires me to organize my upcoming week so I can fit in working on my goals. I become more effective at it and less stressed about how I’m going to manage to do it.

* A process that’s mostly stating goals and how we’re doing with them means we give the important support of witnessing each others’ journey and don’t have to push ourselves ridiculously hard for each other.

You also get big support through the other part of our format:

2) Receive spiritual transmissions three days a week.

A definition of my particular transmissions: They are an ancient Faery Faith method that increases the power, serenity, and safety of your journey, fosters personal growth, and adds good luck to your life overall. My transmissions adapt to your needs, e.g., the ability to be proactive about reaching your goals.

You don’t have to meditate or do anything else to receive the transmissions. Go about your day, while I do the work for you.

For 60 days, you get three transmissions a week. Mega-support for every member of my team!

Feedback: Julie wrote,

“Thank you so much for your spiritual transmissions! They’ve been incredibly helpful, supportive and effective in my life! I’ve been able to:
1. Sell a condo under very challenging conditions for a fair price. …
2. Reawaken my inner writer, resume work on a novel, and win an award in a national poetry competition.
3. Open my heart more fully to my loved ones and to the Supreme All-That-Is.
4. Continue to heal past wounds and live effectively in the present.
5. Stop dyeing my hair!!!!

Bless you for your invaluable assistance!”

Give yourself the care you choose:

* Nap.
* Go for broke marketing your business.
* Sketch for five minutes.
* Hole up for hours to write poetry.
* Visit loved ones on Zoom.
* Keep an eye out for your self-defeating beliefs
* or do whatever else you deem self-love,
* while spiritual transmissions hold you in love and power.

There are no wrong choices, and the attempt is what counts. It’s a self-care touchdown! You hit the goal line!

Just for fun, here’s a poem I wrote that led to football images in this post. The poem energized me to give myself and my community a self-love challenge.

Plus, its lines are in the spirit of the team I want with me for that challenge, as long as you don’t take them all literally. The poem is tongue-in-cheek.

Affirmation for a Modern Woman
March 1999

The affirmation for today is:
“Those motherfuckers are not going to get me.”
The best way to do this affirmation
is at the top of your lungs. Try it
with me, now:
“Those motherfuckers are not going to get me.”
Affirmations work best if repeated. Again. Louder:
“Those motherfuckers are not going to get me.”

I will not get fat eating their sins,
I will not curl up like a dead spider,
my misery wrapped around me like desiccated spider legs,
I will not climb into bed, my sheets a shroud
as I weep and mourn and moan
that their mean little ways are killing me.
Those motherfuckers are not going to get me.

Say it with me, loud as you can:
“Those motherfuckers are not going to get me.”

I am shaking with anger, good.
I am not crying, I am not bingeing my brains out
on corn chips and orange juice,
I am shaking with anger, pumping myself up to kick ass,
get my way, make my way, get my boys to tackle competition
as I run for the goal line, yes, it will be a touchdown,
Metzo-American style
—the losing team gets killed as human sacrifice—
because I am pissed off enough to keep fighting,
I will get the prize—a home, self-respect,
the chance to be in the game, to live fully—
I’m not dropping out of the game due to overweight lethargy,
weepy depression, or any of the other things
that are so goddamn hard
for me not to fall prey to and be defeated by,
instead I am going to be a very aggressive girl.
Would you like to
be on my team?

Join the tribe for the self-care challenge and live your life.

Begins January 24.

Francesca De Grandis is the bestselling author of “Be a Goddess!” Her work couples Goddess mysticism with practical magic and a down-to-earth philosophy. Raised in a traditional Strega family tradition that has Celtic shamanism in its heritage—the family is originally from France—she practices an ancient European witchcraft that is a form of Fairy shamanism.

A mystical event is not a substitute for medical care by a trained physician, psychiatric counseling, or other therapeutic treatments. Participants are personally responsible for the consequences of their voluntary participation.
