Every step we take is an experience in this life. There are no mistakes, no coincidences, and no failures. With each road traveled we learn and expand through the beautiful, the painful, and all in between. No labels are needed as good or bad, it simply is what it is. What did you learn through your last experience? Was something or someone presented to you to test your strength or your capacity for love? Perhaps your heart opened inward and you learned to love yourself. All situations and relationships create the precious person that you are. Allow yourself to feel the emotions streaming through you and your energy will not be lost. If you must move into darkness to find light, so be it. Experience it, live it, ride it! You will flourish with every courageous step you take.
If amends need to be made, make them. Don’t be afraid to push your ego aside and simply say you’re sorry. An apology travels a long way when it is sincere. All negative energy disappears when the air is cleared and you are able to move on. Untie your past, live in the present, and look forward to your future. You are meant to ride your wave freely.
Bless it all. Change is constant, and with change is the opportunity for growth. Grab a hold of your vine and fly!
“You remain a Victim as long as you choose not to learn from your Challenges. When you choose to learn and move forward, you become a Great Teacher to yourself and others.” ~Eric Allen
What light shines within you? Are you allowing it to grow or diminish with each challenge you face in life? Every experience we have is an opportunity to create our own personal path. In this creation our light builds upon itself and extends out toward others. When we follow our true selves we can’t help but shed our inner light out into the world.
When we sabotage the gifts we were given and create roadblocks for ourselves, we will inevitably fall into the victim mentality. You have no one to look to but yourself. Look inward for the growth that is needed to educate yourself and others. Take time to breathe in nature and allow Spirit to guide you on your path. Beware of getting caught up in the external promises of the ego. Humility will assist you in finding your place in this world. Loving your inner self will align you with all the beauty life has to offer.
Shine your light and BE the lighthouse you were meant to be…
Here is a good question to ask yourself. Ten years from now you will surely arrive. The question is, where? We don’t want to kid ourselves about where; we don’t want to kid ourselves about the road we’re walking.
I would assume for all of you, to get to where you want to be…you are either reading the right books or you’re not. You’re either engaged in the disciplines or you’re not. But, here’s what we don’t want to engage in: disillusion. Hoping without acting. Wishing without doing.
The key is to take a look and say, “Where am I? What could I do to make the changes to make sure that I can take more certain daily steps toward the treasure I want, the mental treasure, the personal treasure, the spiritual treasure, the financial treasure? I don’t want to make any more errors, now’s the time to adjust my daily program to take me where I want to go.”…
But the key is to start right now making these changes to walk this new road. And here’s what’s exciting to me, just a few daily disciplines makes a great deal of difference in one year, three years, five years. And before you know it, you will be walking a brand new road.
Change is easy. Change is hard. Change is inevitable. Change is constant. You choose the changes that affect your life.
May your path take you to where you are going….
We are only as lovable as we love ourselves. Do you treat yourself with kindness and respect? Do you nurture the precious person that you are? It all begins with you. How can you expect anyone to treat you with respect if you don’t believe you deserve it? We truly teach others how to treat us.
Who are you? What do you love about yourself? Look deeply within and nurture that lovely part of you that shines. That beautiful light that glows within and projects out into the world. All of us have something to offer ourselves and others. Search that pathway and follow it! You are worth every second that you pay attention to who you are, what you need, and how you can share your gifts with all you come in contact with. You are worth the time you give yourself today.
For those of you who think you’re “conceited” for loving yourself. Think again. We were all created in perfection. In loving ourselves we show our appreciation for the gift of life. To nurture one’s body, mind and soul is to give thanks for this very life! It is our God-given right to feel love, happiness and joy in our lives. Love who you are, feel kindness and compassion for all of life’s experiences, let go of the illusion of control, and watch it all flow….effortlessly.
It all starts with you…
