I would like to talk about self love and why you may not be able to explain to me where you have your Self love hidden. First of all you must truly sit down and look at where your Self Love is. Hmmm… think about this, what truly is Self Love? You would think that your Self Love would be at the top of your thought chain. You would be able to give example after example of when and how you show your Self Love to yourself all the time.
How do you ask a question of someone else when the subject is very near and dear to you? I am talking about those questions that affect how your little girl or boy get triggered and want to make you scream and yell and even at times cry. Well I hope you know me well enough by now that of course I am going to go into the spiritual side of this question.
In class last night the group spoke about the lessons that they were focusing on during the previous week. The main theme was how shame and guilt had prevented them from hearing words of wisdom that would have allowed them to hear truths about their stories much sooner. So I ask you how often, when information comes to you, do you deflect it away because it means you have to look at the choices you made in the past out of anger or fear or guilt?
What does sharing do for your spiritual walk? Are you willing to begin opening up your heart to the stories that you have told about your life? The very first thing that you must begin doing is simply share your story. So many people that I talk with have so isolated themselves in their very own life. Yes, that is correct. They have friends and family, they work, they even laugh and seem to be happy with their lives. Yet it is that kind of person that comes to me and they are so terribly sad with everything that is going on.
One of the things that I spend a lot of time working on with my students and clients is that once you begin to start communicating with yourself and others and for the first time you are feeling the effects of that communications, you can get hit by emotions when people do not recognize that you are trying to reunite with old friends and family. Because you have had stories that you have used to keep you from participating with your loved ones they have gotten used to a certain kind of behaviour from you.
Okay, a question that has probably crossed your mind is… “If I am not supposed to live in my past stories, because by doing so I am carrying that energy into my future and my day to day life experience, how do I then look at my stories and not get stuck creating the same old energy over and over again?”
As you are beginning to truly understand how to use the evaluation process, and you see really wonderful results, you will begin to see this world in such a different way than most others do. You will hear people who you love talking and yet they do not realize that their words reveal they are standing deeply in the ‘less than’. It shows you where the undercurrent lies within their concepts and ideas. It shows you where their fears are about the state of affairs, about what they believe their world is truly like.
As class was continuing last night one of the things that we were working more on was how to recognize when each of you begin to deflect from the very information that you have been thinking about. What do I mean by that? Why would anyone walk away from the information that can change their life? Yet, you are doing so each and every day. You are walking away from opportunities that could change the very way you breathe.
Let’s talk about communicating with ourselves and telling ourselves the truth about our stories that we desire to hold most near and dear to our hearts. Those are the stories that are really the most harmful to our need for change in our lives.
