Remember The TRUTH!

When you were born you were totally aware of these Truths: You are whole and complete. There is absolutely nothing wrong with you. You are worthy and deserving. You are a spiritual being having a human experience. You can trust The Uni-verse. All there is and all that matters is Love.  You are love.

And then you got older.

And things happened.

And you started to forget the Truth.

You started moving out of the awareness of love and into fear, doubt, and judgment.

Someone told you that you did something wrong and you started to believe that something was wrong with you. Someone in your life left or wasn’t really there for you and you began to question whether or not you are lovable.

You saw or heard people yelling at each other and you got scared.   You got yelled at for something you said and you decided it was better to stop speaking your truth.  You got hurt or saw someone get hurt and you stopped trusting.

Your heart got broken, so you thought it would be safer to build some walls around it. You began to doubt love.

People called you a mean name and you believed them.  And now you call yourself that.

People said your dreams were impossible and you believed them.  And now you don’t dream anymore.

You got left out of something.  You felt isolated or separate and now you still feel like you are living on the sidelines of life because you mistakenly believe that’s where you belong. You experienced rejection and now you are afraid to go after what you want.  You began to believe that you are alone and have to do it all on your own.  Perhaps you even concluded that asking for help is weak.

You did not do as well at something as you wanted and you judged yourself as a failure. Some label or diagnosis got thrown on you and you started to confuse it for who you are.

You looked at other people and thought they were smarter, more attractive and better in some way and now you work hard to make yourself more like others.  Not only did you stop liking you, you stopped being you.

You got disappointed and you stopped believing in magic and miracles.  Life felt unfair and you questioned The Uni-verse.

You began to look to the outside world for validation and forgot that your worth has nothing to do with what you do, what you have or who you are with.

As time has gone on you have gotten farther from the Truth. And you know it.  You feel an inner call to stop believing the lies.  There is sense of urgency emerging …

IT’S TIME TO START REMEMBERING THE TRUTH!

You didn’t do anything wrong. You are not broken. There is nothing you need to do or be in order to be loved.  You are safe.  It is safe to trust.  You are not alone.  There is no one any better or worse than you. You are uniquely you and you are absolutely perfect at being you. You belong.  You are worthy and deserving.  You are not what you have been labeled as.

People were mean to you because they didn’t know any better.  People leaving or not being there for you had nothing to do with you.

It is not weak to ask for help. Support is available to you. You are not alone and you never have been.

It’s impossible for your heart to truly break. It is unbreakable and full of unconditional love and compassion.

Everything in your life that you have experienced is for your learning and growth.  Stop asking, “Why did this happen?” and start asking, “What can I learn from what’s happened?” Trust that all those times you didn’t get what you wanted are what you truly needed.

I’m sorry that the people you wanted to hear “I’m sorry” from did not say it to you.  You can forgive even what you think is unforgivable.  Forgiveness is not about condoning what happened – it’s about your freedom.

As soon as you truly accept yourself, your fear of rejection will vaporize.

You have never really failed. You have always done the best you could.  Seriously.

The Universe is for you.

Are you for you?

And you do not need to learn how to love yourself – you already know.  Love is your essence.  You have just forgotten that Truth. Activate your memory by reducing the time and energy you spend on thoughts and actions that reinforce your forgetfulness.  Stop expecting anything or anyone else to do it for you.

There is nothing you have to find; simply recognize what is already there.

Your purpose in life is not to do something grand or achieve some goal. Your purpose is to return to where you began: Love.

A loving reminder from my heart to yours,

Christine

    AWESOME AWESOME AWESOME post!! So well said and, for me, very timely.  Thank you!!!

  • Venny

    WOW. You just blew my mind with such an excellent reminder that was so needed at this time in my life. I feel like I, and a lot of others send so much time trying to “find themselves” and learning how to love themselves when we already have all we need, we just need to spend more time practicing how to accept and just “be.” Truly thankful this post this morning!!!

    I teared up reading this.  Thank you for speaking directly to me.  I am a work in progress, trying to banish the negative stories I have always told myself.  Thank you….

    Christine, Thank you for confirming that what i start remembering is true. That i am already whole and complete, and that there is nothing to fix.

    Wow. Love this. I so needed a reminder right now. It’s so wonderful how someone I don’t know can truly touch me in a time of need. Thank you.

    • Christine

      You are welcome – and when we are connected to the Truth of Love as our essence, we are aware that we all know each other :)

  • Rich

    Thank You Christine,
    What a lovely Post. So True! I have lived what you have written and know so well the FALSE-BELIEFS and FEAR (False-Expectations-Appearing-Real, F-E-A-R). I have begun studying The Personality-Types from The Enneagram Institute and learned a great deal about our known 9 Personality Types. It has helped me discover my type as “The Helper”. I have in my life only sought Love and and struggled to get it! I know now that it is my “Birth-Right” to have and behold that “ESSENCE”. Growing up I lived in a family void of love and peace, and experienced deep wounds of the most horrible kinds. I have forgiven, but not forgotten! Those memories keep playing and I struggle to let them go, but I’m working on it. So, I pray, pray, and pray for salvation. “Seek The Truth and The Truth Will Set You Free”, excellent words to live by! I intend to help others through what I have experienced and learned and share with all that desire, that there is a way to end the EGOS madness!
    Thank you for your beautiful and kind words of WISDOM….

    Rich

      Wow Rich. I wish you had posted your email address. I would love to talk more about the Institute and what it offers. What is the cost. Your story sounds like mine. Thanks for sharing the information.

    Thank you for this wonderful post, exactly what I needed today!

    Your post reminds me of a song I wrote…the lyrics at the end are “you never were alone”

    Wow Christine – apart from being truthful and beautiful this was amazingly well written and SO moving. Think I’ll have to print it out and put it up somewhere I can read it each day! Thanks so much

  • livingthedream

    THIS. IS. FABULOUS.  I am printing this out and posting it on my mirror AND sharing it with my daughter.  She is nearly 8 and her whole life she has been love and light and people around her have tried their best to extinguish this and wear her down and she’s wearing down.  She’s becoming shy, she’s self loathing, she thinks she is bad.  I am absolutely going to read this to her tonight to remind her that she is to NOT FIT IN but to SHINE and STAND OUT because she is love.  thank you so much.  

    • Christine

      Light to your daughter – that sounds a lot like my story at that age…

  • Brittany_shaw15

    again, you have made this day better for so many people… LOVE

  • Gabby

    Thank you for the lovely reminder, Christine :)
    Life has found its way to take us away from the Truth. Let us enjoy the journey. This post makes me trust my path a little bit more, I’m heading the right way.

    Thank you for your amazing efforts. This article really took me back to a part of myself I frequently forget about these days and I am happy there are people like you that remind us of what’s important and how to recognize that. 

  • yogagirl41

    This is outstanding!!!! What a way to get to the point-I love it and may share it in my next yoga class with props to you of course… :) Thank you-made my day. Much love and light

  • Lsdancy

    Great post!  Makes me feel like I’m on the right path.  I recently started claiming for myself that ” I belong here,  I am wanted,  I am welcome, I am whole, I am worthy,  I am loved” etc. – all things that we all may have felt or heard when we were younger,  even as babies.  Then, we start dwelling in a “crazy” place that is absent of Love.  I just started doing this exercise with myself and it feels great! Thank you for this post, so much! The timing is so spot on!  I was meant to read this now!!
