Many of us have beliefs that unknowingly sabotage who we think we are. Due to our early childhood conditioning the stage of life gets set for how we see ourselves and what we choose to believe we can and can’t do. It is as if the pure innocence of our wonder and curiosity is stifled and forgotten as we grow into adolescence. Eventually, adult life settles in and we embark on our journeys developing perceptions and perspectives that shape and mold our thought patterns, behaviors, words and actions. (Mostly comprised of other people’s opinions and beliefs that we were just too immature to question at the time).
In my many years of therapeutic interactions I have found that most people want a better life, a more fulfilling life, one more in harmony with their desires and dreams. The question remains how do we do this?
I have come to believe that this universe equips us with ability to always access our inner wisdom. So, why are we not taking absolute advantage of this opportunity, this gift of truth? Why are we settling for things that are so much less than we are worthy and deserving of? Why are we limiting our potential by not standing in our dignity, showing up and being responsibility for our words and actions? And, most importantly, why are we giving our power away by not harnessing our innate strength and capacity of human kindness and love for all residents of this planet? Have we forgotten humility and respect towards one another? I Can’t help but ask where is the disconnect? I believe it exists when we do not connect with our inner wisdom.
Isn’t a drop of water from the ocean still part of the ocean? It is not any less than the ocean. It is just an individual droplet simply presented as part of the whole.
Let’s look deeper into this…
Did you know that we are not separate from Universe/God/Divinity; we are just an individualized expression of this grand magnificence. You are a divine child of the universe. We have always been and will always a beautiful expression of the CREATOR. This creator is our quiet voice the one that resides in us all, willing to guide us… if we ask – this voice is just waiting patiently for our attention.
Did you know that you are never alone, although it may appear that way for some people, it is simply is just untrue. Seek solace within yourself for that is where your power and deepest wisdom lies. Take but a moment of your precious day to meet the amazing you. Did you know that you are wonderful, kind, loving and have so much to offer this world? If no one ever told you this, it is high time you tell yourself the truth.
We all have to start somewhere to replenish, rejuvenate and rebirth our true selves. So, might I suggest this year of 2020, we begin to rewrite our stories, more in alignment with the deepest wisdom/intuition that has always be here for us. This quiet voice is ready to be heard, please give yourself the gift of your own inner friend- and… It all begins with Self-Love.
May I suggest to: Find a quiet place where you will not be disturbed.
Let’s considering writing a letter to our amazing young self, no one needs to see it, just you. It doesn’t matter what you have or have not accomplished in your life at this point in time. Tell yourself all the wonderful words it longs to hear. This may sound silly, but it is so healing and helpful to be gentle and kind with your heart. There is a little child inside of us who longs to hear wonderful words of compassion and love. And, if you did not grow up in a family that told you this, please do not blame them, no one ever told them these beautiful words, so they could not pass on this gift to you.
But you now have the chance to change everything with one kind word to yourself at a time… this is a process which dramatically shifted my heart of emotional pain one tear at a time…
Now is the moment to change the cycle of past sadness, neglect, victim-hood, low self-esteem, etc.… Stand in your confident power and celebrate the wonderful you. Even you can’t find one thing you love about yourself…maybe you could just be grateful for just your breath. Without it- there would be no you…
Forget what any negative people say about you, it’s their opinion, the only opinion that matters is yours. Do your best to dwell on good thoughts, look at pictures that make you happy, or think of joyful times in your life to help set the stage for your letter writing. There is no perfect way to do this, just breath and write to the little one in your heart. Speak to yourself as you would a young child, after all, that is the best way to help you heal any inner wounds. Tell “little him” or “little her” you as so sorry for all they have been through and you are so proud of how they survived it all. Tell them you are here to take care of them and love them no matter what.
Please, take time to do this…
This is not about perfection, it is about an authentic self-expression, and an opening of you heart-space to invite more love, joy, and peace in your body, mind and spirit. You deserve kind words; words that make you feel special, nourished and loved. Just by taking this one step you open the door to begin a healing process of whatever hurts inside….
I honor you, love you and have the utmost of reverence for you journey. Be still, listen and hold that child near and dear for she/he is the unraveling of your sweet innocence and purity.
In love and light dear kindred spirit…
