Today, Spirit asks that we spend a good deal of time reflecting within. Take a good look around… rearrange the furniture of your soul, throw out what’s no longer working and bringing in something new to help bring balance. Give yourself love and support and seek out whatever it is that is missing.
This week on the magical day of 11/11 we have a new moon… new beginnings, new love, new life, new, new, new!!! It’s time to start working on manifesting the life you want… bring your dreams to life! Also Spirit urges us to be aware of how we speak to ourselves and what we tell ourselves. Focus on what we can do instead of what we can’t.
I was thinking today, taking a bit of time to reflect. I looked over all the bad days I’ve had and all of my best days. I found something common in each of them. Soooooo … I tell you what I found! TREASURE!
There’s a new kind of energy in the air today! Today we are going to practice the art of letting shit go! Let it go! It’s not needed and it does nothing but hold us back. We are also going to practice the art of loving ourselves completely, unconditionally with all we have to love. We are worth it! It is as it should be! Today we will be in the moment and enjoy each breath!
Today as I ask Spirit what can he give me to help everyone through this Spiritual shift in our lives.. Spirit answers back with multiple answers. The bottom line is to hang in there, don’t quit, do everything in life with love and stay positive. Beyond this great shift that many of us are experiencing is a new life just waiting to be lived. Pushing through the storm will be well worth all of our efforts.
It’s a very freeing and empowering feelings when you find your own light. When you realize that love, light and happiness has always been inside YOU. There is no need to look to outside sources to make yourself happy or to make your life complete. You are already whole, you are already complete. Just as you are!
When was the last time you looked in the mirror and said “I Love You” to yourself? It’s great to love others and to be kind and give to as many people as you like, but don’t neglect yourself in the process. You deserve a little love too, ya know!
Here we go with my first update on MY YEAR to ENJOY BEING ME!
I was walking through Hobby Lobby today and started down an aisle to look at a giant clock at the other end. There were tons of mirrors in that aisle.. I try my best to avoid mirrors…. the horror of seeing what I look like out in public.. cringe. Just before I got to the clock I turned an saw myself… I paused, stepped back for another look and do you know what??? Other than the typical stuff…. yeah I need to lose some weight, blah blah blah, etc… there was nothing wrong with that reflection. That was me and I’m not all that bad to look at. A bit fluffy but if I really want to change that, I can!
For years I felt so unattractive, not from words said or actions toward me but more because of a lack of actions and just the feeling that I got. One knows when someone else finds them attractive and that’s something I haven’t felt in a very long time. When that feeling is absent in your life long enough, you begin to think you look how you feel inside and inside I felt that I must be hideous. Why else would that feeling of mutual love be held back from me so much? I certainly know I’m far from what most consider beautiful or gorgeous and that’s okay… I’m happy to be me. Today the reflection in that mirror wasn’t hideous at all and it took me by surprise. It was a really nice moment and I hope that it stays with me.
The answer should be: YOU!
I know through all my years of living that the above answer has rarely, if ever been “Me”. All too often I have allowed others to be the carrier of MY happiness. Why the heck have I done that!!!!! How many times do I have to do this to know that this is not how it works. Someone else should not determine how happy I am at any given moment. Easier said than done. I know many of you will nod your head and agree with me on that.
Whether it be that we just want to be equally liked, loved, admired, wanted or needed, we tend to place our happiness on others and usually without even telling them that we have done so. We do this with the pretense of thinking that they should just know that what they say and do effects YOUR happiness. Silly us… what are we thinking???
Many times we have done this and many times we end up in tears or just plain ol’ unhappy in general. Yet we continue doing it, over and over again. Why oh why?
How do we stop this train wreck? Again, this is easier said than done… but we must find our own happiness. We have to stop handing it over to someone else and take care of it on our own. I’m really not sure how this is going to work and how effectively I can pull this off, but what I do know is that I have to try. I have to start making a conscience effort daily to find that happy place inside myself and breathe in, breathe out and be content with each moment. I have to stop worrying if someone else likes me, loves me, admires me, wants me, cares for me, values me, or any other way someone interacts with or feels about me.
I have to find the happiness within myself.. in the ways that I’m not happy with myself, I need to make the necessary changes so that I can be happier who I am. I’m not saying one should be vain or conceited about themselves… no one likes arrogance. What I am saying though, is that we cannot base how we feel at any given point or another on whether or not someone else feels that way about us.
Today is a new day .. today I vow to be happy with myself and within myself.. it’s not going to be easy … but nothing worth doing, ever is!
