I love my job. I seriously must have one of the coolest jobs in the world.
If you haven’t heard, we have a SUPER awesome free event happening November 12-16 called The Daily Love EXTRAVAGANZA.
I am interviewing 22 AMAZING people who are experts in their field. It’s SUPER exciting!
One of the people I’ve interviewed is a man named Robert Holden who is an AMAZING teacher. Make sure to check him out and read his books.
Robert and I were chatting back in August when I was in London and something he said hit me like a TON of bricks. He told me that without self-acceptance that self-help won’t work.
The way that I say it is that without self-acceptance your spiritual path is spiritual entertainment at best. I mean you might as well watch a movie and just observe someone else going through a transformation. It’s so true.
I’ve spent a lot of my life trying to “change” or “fix” myself. And what I’ve concretely come to understand is that The Path is not so much about changing or fixing ourselves as it is accepting ourselves. Acceptance of who you REALLY are is the beginning of a brand new life.
And not who you are on a personality level. Who you are on a SOUL level. That is to say – you are a Divine child of The Uni-verse, and when you accept that – you claim your Divine birthright, everything changes. This doesn’t mean your life will be showered in riches, but it does mean that you will begin to live a path that is in alignment with your highest creative potential.
Many times that means trials before revelation. Many times that means suffering before liberation. Many times that means breakdowns before breakthroughs. But when we start to ACCEPT all of this as part of the Path of being a Divine child of The Uni-verse, it gives our suffering, trials and breakdowns a different context. It becomes preparation instead of punishment. It brings purification instead of condemnation. And as we step into and accept our own Divinity, we also begin to realize that all other people are also Divine children of The Uni-verse and so we begin to feel a bond with everyone we meet.
Accepting this brings massive change, growth and miracles into our lives. Can you accept your Divine birthright?
