Self love is probably the most important thing to do when it comes to living a life filled with joy and love. It's unfortunate, but I think that most people have many negative beliefs about themselves. They set too many requirements for themselves and beat themselves up over what they perceive as "mistakes" in their life.
This may surprise many of you, but I was recently reading a channeled book called, Love and a Map to the Unaltered Soul by Tina Louise Spalding. We have this whole love thing very twisted. They say that we are "looking for love in all the wrong places". The love of your life should actually be YOU.
This is the extremely shortened version, but the basic idea is that YOU, as a soul, made ALL of the decisions before you came into your body. You specifically chose your parents because they would provide the environment and the challenges that you wanted to experience. In other words, you knew exactly what you were getting into. You knew about the possible outcomes. If you're reading this then it was YOUR choice to be born. You could have changed your mind and this explains miscarriage, still births, Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) and other possible ways of leaving. But you're here, you wanted the chance to experience the life that your living.
Since birth, it's your beliefs about yourself that have created who you are and most of those "beliefs" don't even belong to you. Most of them came from society, religion, parents and teachers. It's their beliefs about how things should be. It's their beliefs that tell you that true love is outside of you. When you believe that another person will bring you happiness you're giving your power away.
Many beliefs come from comparing yourself to others. Begin to question those beliefs. Are they really true or did someone else tell you that? What if someone was having a bad day and called you stupid? Does that mean that you're stupid?
Lisa Nichols is a great example of this. Have you ever listened to her speak? One of her teachers told her to never, ever speak in public. She is now one of the greatest speakers on the planet. In fact, I usually end up in tears after hearing her, because she's such a great storyteller. What if she had listened to that teacher? Thank goodness she had enough self love and determination to prove that teacher wrong.
Appreciate and be grateful for who you are right now. Everything that has happened in your life has happened for a reason. Everything has made you who you are. Many things have probably made you stronger. Love yourself first and you will attract more love.
In a recent Abraham-Hicks video, they were throwing out what they said were "very potent, powerful statements to consider". One of them was, "I've decided that I am a good person, therefore I'm going to pamper myself as much as possible." Your soul is pure light and unconditional love. You came here to discover that. To discover who you really are.
Show love and respect to others, take care of children, but more importantly, love and respect yourself. It's your vibration that creates your reality.
Self love is not selfish.
Everyday give yourself permission to love yourself and direct your day to the things that bring you joy.
This also means that you chose to be here for ascension.
Simply put, with ascension you are gradually merging with your own soul. If your soul is PURE unconditional love, then how can you possibly merge if you don't even like yourself? How can you reach that 5th dimensional state of consciousness, if you're beating yourself up all the time? How can you do that if you're miserable?
Your body will function in the dimension that it vibrates at.
Self love must come first. This will lead you to the highest possible state of BEing or state of consciousness. It will eventually allow you to stay in that high vibration most of the time. Then, you will be able to assist others. That is your "job" now.
Self love will also help with manifesting. Do you realize that when you don't like yourself, you're basically telling the Universe that you don't respect yourself enough to live a life that's abundant. You're vibration is saying that you don't deserve.
YOU are important. YOU are enough. No one is better than you. No one deserves to be on this planet more than you.
Throughout your life, every statement that you believed to be true about yourself is now stored in your subconscious mind. Because you decided that it was true, your subconscious will keep reminding you of it over and over again. Most of it is totally untrue and we need to stop paying attention to it. Get out of your head, because your subconscious LIES all day long. Live from the heart, it will never lie to you.
Do you realize that negative thoughts about yourself can also affect your health? Do you know that heart disease comes from a closed heart? I've read about many medical miracles that occurred when people just began a new program of self love.
God/Source energy IS the frequency of unconditional love. You can never do anything wrong. That's what unconditional means. God/Source adores you. Begin to love yourself and take care of yourself. Send out the vibration of " I AM WORTHY", because you are.
Only YOU are responsible for YOU.
If you've had a experience in your life that makes you believe that you're not worthy or not good enough, you may want to read Challenges. Many things were planned before you were born.
I was listening to a talk by Tom Bilyeu who spoke at Mindvalley's A-Fest. Even his mom thought that he was going to be a failure and he now runs one of the fastest growing companies in the nation. Watch it here on You Tube. It was a great talk.
