All human beings seek relationship, either with themselves or another. Relationship comes in many guises and on many levels. Between parent and child, the connection within friendship, that beautiful bond between two lovers, and the deepest, greatest relationship of them all.. the one with one self!
Ultimately every relationship with another comes to show us where we are within our relationship with our self.
So right now, in this moment, how are you feeling about yourself?
Can you look at yourself in the mirror and see your gentle gaze reflected back at you?
Can you sit within this moment and feel the warmth of your loving heart.
Are you happy with who you are and how you have responded to whatever life has brought to you in the past few weeks?
And if there is some area of you that is asking for your love and gentleness.. can you do this, can you be kind to yourself knowing that you have come to this life experience to learn about yourself, and you may not always respond in the moment in a way that helps you feel fully in your loving power, but through the awareness that you could have done it a different way… you have gained the learning, the understanding and so change has happened with you.
The gift we can offer ourselves in any moment is the gift of acceptance. To accept our self for how we are right in the moment, with forgiveness for how we may have felt about our self in the past, helps opens us to our self on a deeper level.
“I accept myself fully right now for who I am. I accept that in this moment I am still learning about myself. I accept in that I am a work in progress and always will be, but I have come a long way from who I was and I am excited by who I am right now and where I am headed. I accept that I am the shadow and the light, the multi faceted diamond, with some facets still needing a gentle polish. I accept that life reflects to me who I am in all moments, and I accept willingly and openly all parts of myself and the learning gained in the awareness of them all. I am a beautiful being growing into my magnificence and I now accept into my life … joy, peace, love and light.. as my birthright! … I accept the gift this life is! And so it is!”
You are your best friend! You are your greatest lover! There is no one that knows you as deeply as you do! You are so deserving of your own love and kindness.
Learn to be by yourself more often … ‘By Your Self’ … meaning walk with YOU, as the observer! Talk to yourself as a parent would to a beloved child, or from one best friend to another. Look after your body through tender loving awareness and touch.. as a lover would. Bring your attention to yourself in a caring, considerate, compassionate flow of focused feeling and thought.
Be aware of your inner conversation in regard to yourself, your thoughts, and your words! The warmth that will run through you when you show yourself how loving you can be towards yourself is such a gift.
When you know you are in an honouring and loving relationship with yourself you are ready to step into a beautiful relationship with another… a conscious relationship… a balanced relationship… one built on transparency, openness, communication, respect, trust and love. You know you are ready because you do not have a ‘need’ for this relationship with another .. you are very happy being on your own, but are ready to take your relationship with yourself to the next level.
You are so beautiful…. and if you are still arriving at this realisation please know that there are those such as I, who see your beauty and feel the goodness within you.. we feel your love!
For, like us all…. at your core you are a being of ‘divine love’ .. and only good can exist within love.
