Your secret blessing, Celeste, is that no matter where you go in time and space, you only ever have to be yourself – as courageous, vulnerable, bold, or afraid as you may feel – to find yourself amongst friends.
You’re actually kind of like chocolate to other people when you’re just being yourself.
Another perfect note from the Universe this morning as it mirrors succinctly the very foundation of the philosophy from which I coach, total self-acceptance. Just this morning I worked with a client around recognizing self-judgment as a message he was receiving from his Higher Self to fully accept himself, warts and all.
What if you stopped listening to the words of your own self-judgment and just recognized “the Judge” as one of your multi-dimensional selves indicating your Higher Self was seeking your attention? What might “the Judge” actually be saying to you? Maybe something like, “Let’s get honest here, nobody here but us two. What do you really think/believe/feel/sense deep in your core?” (Read more here to know which of these words is the best for you.)
I love the way that Abraham explains that negative, or uncomfortable, feelings are nothing more than just indicators that you’re ready to get back into alignment with who you really are. There’s nothing good/bad, right/wrong, positive/negative, clean/dirty, or black/white about them. These indicators are just like the gas tank indicator on our car warns us when we’re nearing empty. It’s not the goal to put a “happy face sticker” on your gas tank and hope for the best. We use the indicator as information and guidance.
So an uncomfortable feeling, such as self-judgment, is an indicator your Higher Self wants to talk! And, your Higher Self NEVER uses degrading, demeaning or judgmental language, so learn to listen to what is beneath the words you hear in your head. When you’ve tapped into what is honest and authentically true for you, you’ll feel the immediate relief of self-acceptance for the whole kit and caboodle that is you. And the legacy? When you connect with your totality and accept yourself, others sense this and you become a beacon for their own self-acceptance.
Integrative Action Steps for Using Your Indicators:
- As you pay attention to your inner thoughts and feelings, instead of trying to cover up or shift your attention from uncomfortable feelings, experiment with acknowledging their presence as an aspect of yourself, and then “ask” this aspect what’s really true. Even if it feels like the “answers” are coming from your imagination, keep asking for the deeper truth until you feel the “ah-ha” of deep knowing.
