Repeat after me: I matter.

The world would not be the same without me.

I am loved.

I give love.

Because of my existence, love exists.

Because of love, I am.

It is important that I am here, doing exactly this, right now. I am where I need to be.

Never forget—the center of the universe is in you, just as much as you are in the center of it.

I am, because we are.

We are, because I am.

We are all one.

About Rachel Brathen

Rachel is a yogi on a world tour. Born and raised in Sweden, she currently resides in the beautiful island of Aruba where she is busy teaching yoga at a resort in the mornings, coordinating retreats at noon, taking her three somewhat crazy dogs to the beach to keep up with the surf in the afternoon and trying to survive as a vegan (where no vegetables grow!) in the evenings. She firmly believes that life is not black or white – it’s black and white and blue and yellow with rays of pink and sparkle in between. You can teach yoga and still be a party animal. Meditate and ignore your spending problems. Be vegan and eat too much chocolate. Have a Swedish passport and live in the Caribbean. You can do anything, as long as it’s you! You can find Rachel on the beach, probably practicing her Astavakrasana, or on
