Self-Love ~ What does it look like? What does it feel like?

self-loveWhen a person is aligned with healthy self-love they are at peace, trusting their intuition. They have an understanding of what constitutes true Source. When a person lives their life loving themselves, their capacity to love others grows naturally. Contrary to what many people believe, those that love themselves deeply do not spend the majority of their days thinking about themselves. The peace that accompanies self-love provides ample room in their consciousness and their life to think of others, to care for others, to share with others and to think of true Source God/Goddess. They feel and know their own heart well enough to be free of competitive and comparison consciousness and the need to be right. Their energy and attention gives loving allowance for all others to do as they see fit and believe what they believe until such a time they themselves are awakened to a greater truth.

Self Care and Trust:

Those who give of themselves with no regard for their own well-being do not resonate with self love. A person who lives in the vibration of healthy self-love knows when to say no and when to rest, they know what is the best thing to do to maintain their own health and follow through with that knowledge exhibiting unspoken wisdom and vitality. Healthy self-love supports an open mind and an open heart with courage enough to do what is felt to be the best choice in any given situation. They trust their inner knowing. A daily spiritual practice of meditation and prayer helps to cultivate self love and the beautiful feeling of wellness and belonging that goes with it because it strengthens God Consciousness. Self-love is allowing the love of God to express through us unobstructed.

We are Whole Beings:

To care and nurture the physical body is an important part of self-love. A healthy body makes life easier but healthy self-love is more than taking care of ones body temple. Healthy self-love pays kind attention to the emotional body, the mental body as well as our soul and the spiritual body. We are meant to be whole and when one part is suffering it has a detrimental effect on other parts.

* If the mind is not light, free and positive it will energize negative emotions, which will affect the body even if the person eats all the right foods and exercises.

*  If a person has happy thoughts and is generally exhibiting an outward happy mood but has a poor diet and does not exercise sooner or later the vitality of the body temple will break down.

* If a person demonstrates a good nature but the nature of their inner world is polluted with regret, jealousy, fear or unresolved anger it doesn’t matter if the mask they wear each day is a smile, a balancing of energy will sooner or later surface revealing the disconnect caused by hidden feelings and thoughts.

 inner conflictDrain of Inner Conflict:

When we are in conflict, our inner world and our outer world do not match, our dreams and desires are faded or possibly forgotten, we tend to treat our body poorly, we tend to treat others poorly, we wear down and wear out. Self-love will seem like a foreign concept at best. To begin resolving the inner conflict begins with recognizing the conflicts. It is worth the time to consciously discover what feels harmonious in your life and what doesn’t. Once you have a good handle on what is not working start making changes. It takes less energy to make changes than to remain conflicted. Read more »

Master Higher Levels of Consciousness

Master Higher Levels of Consciousness

When you know something to be true practice it until you have mastered it. We can see that humanity has mastered very low levels of consciousness vibrating fear, guilt, greed, denial and so on. There is mass unhappiness in our world because of it. It is time for us to practice and master higher levels of consciousness. see What is Conscious Mastery?

Master higher levels of consciousnessBelow I have shared the principles of Conscious Mastery but as you can see they are some of the very basic principles of life. If we begin to dedicate our consciousness to the vibration of love, kindness and truth rather than dedicate our consciousness to fear, frustration and anger we will be practicing Conscious Mastery.

The process of practicing higher levels of consciousness requires us to be aware of our thought processes, aware of our actions and responsible for both. As we strive for higher thinking and evolved action we find ourselves dancing with our shadows. The old way rears its head demanding attention but for the old way to die a new way must be practiced. As we become aware of the old way and choose to change it, the practice of a new way begins with the conscious release of unhealthy thoughts and actions.

For our consciousness to rise up sustainably, we must support it with both healthy loving thoughts and positive, constructive actions. It is a combination of releasing the old and nurturing the new. To master levels of consciousness that are free of denial, guilt, fear and judgment allowing truth and love to flow through us, to us and from us we must practice what we to know to be true.

You are not alone~Free the God Energy Within

power of prayerThere is an old African Proverb that says “ When you pray move your feet.” I think it is telling us it is time to apply action to the things we know to be true and the tools we are gathering to assist us in our evolution. Too often we underestimate what we are capable of and what we really know yet some how it nudges us for our attention.

A simple example: You know that saying mean things to your self about yourself is detrimental to your overall wellness yet when life presents an opportunity for you to change that dialogue you give obedience to the old way. Then something deep inside stirs and tells you ‘being kind and gentle with yourself is better and will lead you to peace rather than turmoil’. If we give our attention to the new way it is a way of us “moving our feet.” The very moment we find ourselves doing or saying something that is not resonating with love we have an opportunity to course correct. Rephrase that thought, make a better choice. Step back from an old action and readjust to a better way. We can put one foot in front of the other literally by choosing to take a walk instead of eating something to ease frustration or by praying for someone we don’t understand instead of cursing them. And yes, with a little practice it becomes easy. With a little more practice you will find yourself making good choices and entertaining healthy thoughts from the get go.

positive changeTime to Move our Feet:

The time is now to become interested and curious about life, what we can do with it and what we can do in it. Become curious about how it feels to experience positive changes through our ability to direct our attention and energy creating a life that makes us smile with happiness and joy.

We have heard “ God does not give us more than we can handle.” Another way of saying this is: The challenges life presents comes with the power to master it. God dwells within and as such everything we need to create the best life ever is within us.

So why do we see much of humanity stressed, angry, and unhappy?

Let Go Let GodThis brings me to another well-known phrase “ Let Go and Let God.” Letting go is an action. It is not pushing something down pretending it doesn’t exist or forgetting that is exists. It really means “let go.” What we are holding must be released or let go of so the energy can literally lighten up.

Jesus said,” If you bring forth what is within in you, what you bring forth will save you. If you do not bring forth what is within you, what you do not bring forth will destroy you.” Old pain, out grown beliefs, shame, guilt and so on weigh heavy upon us, robbing us of our vitality, our joy, our health and our natural creative impulses. What we hold in the darkness of denial and forgetfulness is powerful energy that belongs to us but is not readily available. This repressed energy begins to work against us manifesting everything we do not want from ill health, disruptive relationships, to poverty.

energy flowingEnergy is meant to flow:

We are designed to fulfill our life’s passion, purpose and destiny. One purpose we all have in common is to be happy. Happiness is an expression of our true nature and is found in the deep acceptance of the self. Read more »
