I hate being disappointed. There's nothing worse than getting your hopes up only to have them squelched when something doesn't turn out the way you plan. And that's precisely why I hate to disappoint others. Over the years I've watched myself go on autopilot when someone asks for a favor, saying "yes" when I know in my gut that I'd rather not do it. Or I've suffered, spending too much time trying to come up with a graceful way to let someone down so they wouldn't feel hurt or angry at my "no."
We are Ancient
Sirian of Origin, galactic of birth. We are beyond your measure of time and
space. We are beyond your message of DNA and RNA. We are what the light of
earth yearns to become. We are genetically encoded within the elements of
earth, wind, fire, water, and the fifth element being the human.
What does it mean to love ourselves? You’ve heard me say that all love flows from self love and we will never find someone to love us more than we love ourselves, but what does it mean to love ourselves and how do we know that we’re not loving ourselves? If it is so important why is it so complicated?
Today we wish to speak to you on the subject of communication, but not in the traditional sense. Rather we wish to talk about how you speak to yourself, for indeed dear ones, you are in constant communication with every aspect of your being.
In honor of Mother’s Day I’d like to ask you a question: How good are you at mothering yourself? Many of us (including our mothers) never learned to nurture and care for ourselves in a consistent way. Instead, our fear of what others think, a desire to be loved and accepted, or the nagging sense of not being good enough caused many of us to fall into a pattern of self-neglect.
I’ve spent the week reading the wonderful stories and examples of how people are paying attention to the signs, symbols, and experiences that reawaken their passions. The stories are varied and provide great inspiration for paying attention to what shows up in your life every day!
We are entities of matter and energy. We are constantly out of balance because it is easier for us to see and feel the matter we are. As a species, we put so much emphasis on the material world, our appearance and any tangible objects. We were taught to "believe it when we see it." However don't we have faith in our thoughts?
This week, while doing some research for my next book, I came across an interesting list of characteristics for self-actualization from Abraham Maslow, founder of humanistic psychology. (You can read the full list and more info about his work here).
Beloved ones, there is a flame that burns inside of you. It is the center of your being. It is the power of your heart. It is your part of the explosion that Creation is. It is dynamic, irresistible and catapults you into the most exquisite experience of all that life is.
On Sunday, March 27th through the 31st I have the privilege of leading a very special retreat with Louise Hay, a beloved teacher and writer who has touched the lives of millions of people around the world. This retreat will be held at Miraval Resort and Spa and is based, in part, on a book that Louise and I have been working on for the last few months c
Our human experience is one full of extraordinary opportunities, both on a personal and collective level. What lies before us in the unfolding of each present moment is the ultimate gift of understanding of who we are from the deepest recesses of our being and our purpose for being here at this time.
The present phase of linear time on your planet is a uniquely opportune juncture for self-review and chosen solitude. Masters many of you, particularly those above the age of 49, the seventh 7 year cycle, find yourselves in a state of solitude, after spouses have passed, relationships terminated and marriage contracts have ended. And although this path is at times quite lonely, quite difficult and may feel 'unnatural' for many of you, it is with purpose. So we tell you to use this time wisely, embrace it. You are on the cusp of a great graduation.
I’ve just finished the “I Can Do It” conference here in Toronto and, before I go to bed, I wanted to share some of my notes with you from an extraordinary documentary that was shown at lunch today. The movie was called, Doors Opening, and it’s the story of the work Louise Hay did with men who were suffering with AIDS in the mid eighties. During a time when most people literally shunned these men, Louise welcomed them into her home and her heart, and taught them how to heal. The film is a moving example of the power of love – both self love and the selfless love of a woman committed to being of service. Here are several things Louise suggests we do in order to love ourselves more:
Being friends with your spouse, with your children, with those you dearly love, truly does begin with being friends with yourself. The process for others is the same as the process is for me. It is, as I said, a three-part process...Forgiveness, Acceptance, Celebration. Once I had found a way to forgive myself (God showed me the way by showing me the way that God forgives me), I then simply needed to move into a place of acceptance of myself; of who I was and how I was.
