Self-Love is a huge one for me. The meaning I gave to the events that happened while growing up resulted in shame becoming my “Emotional Home.” The story I looped continually in my psyche, because of who I was, and what had happened to me and what I had done, left me believing I was ”Unworthy of the Love of The Uni-verse.” These stories block our souls from connection to The Uni-verse and from fully expressing our magnificence. It’s impossible to be in alignment with your life’s purpose without “Self-Love.”
The irony is that you need to “BE THE LOVE” you want in your life. Nothing flows effortlessly until you have come home to Self-Love. We wonder why all those goals we have set never seem to materialize. The irony is you could write out goals and plaster them on the front of every building in New York City; it wouldn’t matter because without Self-Love, your connection to The Uni-verse is out of wack!
I love how scientific research and The Uni-verse are merging. We now know that all matter is energy. The difference in the matter we experience is just the result of energy vibrating at different frequencies; the frequency at which matter vibrates is unique to each kind of particle of matter, according to string theory. And that matter is the same stuff we are made out of. Therefore it stands to reason that The Uni-verse and we mortals are utterly interrelated. Our thoughts and beliefs create our realities and our perception of The Uni-verse. There is nothing that can separate you from The Uni-verse except you.
Love is the energy that syncs with The Uni-verse and all the matter that exists in it. And that’s why if you are not in a state of Self-Love, then you’re swimming against the flow of The Uni-verse. And unfortunately, those goals you painted onto the front of every building in New York City, will have little effect when you are swimming against the tide of The Uni-verse.
The stories that you have about your unworthiness are based on meanings you gave to events that are often out of wack with reality. You are not broken and you do not need to be fixed. Step into the love that is your divine birthright. Then let the love of The Uni-verse fill you to overflowing and allow that love to show up in all areas of your life.
Then it’s time to write those goals and be available and ready for miracles. These words are not just fluffy feel good jargon. Our interconnectedness with The Uni-verse has been proven by science! And one of the fundamental Uni-versal laws is that The Uni-verse loves you unconditionally.
My goal is to become totally immersed in healing/coaching/mentoring and leadership, and for this to happen I need to be in flow with The Uni-verse and all that matter stuff, and that means I need to honor myself with healthy servings of Daily Self-Love.
So if you want be onboard with Self-Love, don’t be half on board! Go all out!
Much Love & Welcome Home.
