“Whatever games are played with us, we must play no games with ourselves, but deal in our privacy with the last honesty and truth.” ~Ralph Waldo Emerson
A client came into my office the other day, sat down, looked me in the eye and said, “I think I’m going crazy.” She proceeded to tell me that her intuition, and actions of her partner, are telling her old habits are creeping up again. She has no solid proof that her partner is into his addiction again, but it’s a feeling. She proceeds to tell me that every time she confronts him on it he gets defensive and turns it back around onto her.
When your intuition speaks, it is Spirit knocking at your door, giving you a wake up call. Trust in your own truth and allow self-care to follow. My client and I reviewed her own life lesson she is learning through this difficult time. Most importantly, she is aware that she cannot do the work for her partner or force him to make healthier choices. He has to have his own desire to change and do the work himself, just as my client needs to focus on herself and increase her own strength in making healthy choices. One choice may be getting out of an unhealthy relationship. As she does her own work, and begins the healing process, she will find that she is surrounded by like-minded, like-spirited people. We are all capable of creating our own happiness.
Be truthful with your heart and follow the messages it gives you. When we are honest with ourselves, we honor our purpose here on earth. Nurture the precious being that you are and refuse to allow anyone to abuse your kindness. Create your own world of joy, light and love, and watch it all unfold…
This is so true!
We Always need to Listen to what our intuition is telling us! It Speaks the Truth!
I feel the biggest blockage to heed to the messages we are receiving is fear.
The fear of change!
When we face this fear, we find a new way to live.
We live our truth and experience ourself to our fullest potential.
Maria, your comment about fear is so true. When we stand up for ourselves, convey self-respect, and are honest with ourselves, life just gets better & better!
A great acronym for FEAR….Forget (some people use another word:) Everything And Run!!!! The most important piece in this, never forget yourself. As you give love, you are worth every ounce of love you receive!:)
I spent 40 years of my life trying to force two ex-husbands to cease their negative addictions, then I gave up and worked on my need to control others!
Barbara, giving up the need to control is so HUGE in our own self healing! Good for you…I’m sure you are a much more contented, peaceful person for it! Change can be difficult, but with practice and perseverance we find a better life:)
I love your acronym for fear! It says it all….Lol!
Yes I believe whole heartedly that when one gives love genuinely from their heart, the return is immense.
