Self love is probably the most important thing to do when it comes to living a life filled with joy. I truly believe that we all need to give ourselves a break.
Very recently, through a channeler, the Pleiadians said:
Humans are "imperfectly perfect" and that's exactly the way that you're supposed to be. That's why we love and honor you.
Most of us have been taught that loving ourselves is selfish and that's not true at all. There should be a balance.
One example is that most of us have heard that "it's better to give than to receive" so we give, give, give and never take time for ourselves. In fact, it's my understanding that many of us came into this lifetime to learn to receive. It was a "life lesson" for many, because many give too much.
There is no doubt that you should love and care for others, show respect and compassion for others, but not to the extent that you don't have time for yourself. Give yourself time to enjoy life, relax and have some fun. You weren't put on this Earth to take care of everyone else or to save the world.
Self love is a balanced love, with some set boundaries. Self love means to appreciate YOU for who you really are.
I was reading a book called, Love and a Map to the Unaltered Soul by Tina Louise Spalding. It was the channeled words from her guides. They say that we are "looking for love in all the wrong places". The love of your life should actually be YOU.
This is an extremely shortened version, but the basic idea is that YOU, as a soul, made many of your life decisions before you came into your human body. You specifically chose your parents because they would provide the life and the challenges that you wanted to experience. You knew exactly what you were getting into. You knew all of the possible outcomes.
Since birth, it's your beliefs about yourself that have created who you are. Unfortunately, many of those "beliefs" came from society, religion, parents and teachers, telling you who and what you should be. Ask yourself, "Is this who I really am, who I really want to be or did someone else tell me that?"
No matter what, appreciate and be grateful for yourself 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.
You are always in alignment with who and what you BELIEVE you are.
Your body will function in the dimension that it vibrates at.
So if that statement is true, then how can you possibly merge if you don't even like your human self? How can you reach that 5th or 6th dimensional state of consciousness, if you're beating yourself up all the time?
Self love must come first for a little while, however this doesn't mean to ignore others. Always consider them too. This will lead you to the highest possible state of BEing or state of consciousness and it will eventually allow you to stay in that high vibration most of the time.
Realize that YOU are important. YOU are enough. No one is better than you. No one deserves to be on this planet more than you.
Begin to get out of your head, because your subconscious mind LIES all day long. Live from the heart, because that's where your real truth is.
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 it.
You must also love yourself before you commit to any relationships. You should never expect love from someone else to "fill the void". Love yourself first and the relationship will flow. You won't be "desperate" for their love, when you're already filled with love.
Self love can also have a very positive effect on 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.
Source energy IS the frequency of unconditional love. You can never do anything wrong. That's what unconditional means. 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.
