Self love is probably the most important thing to do when it comes to living a life filled with joy. It's unfortunate, but I think that most people have many negative beliefs about themselves. They set too many requirements and they beat themselves up over what they perceive as "mistakes". Lately it seems to be getting much worse.
I've been noticing comments on certain YouTube channels, where people seem to have this idea that they have to be perfect in order to ascend. It's really beginning to bother me.
Very recently 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.
Self love is a balanced love, not an egotistical love. What I mean is that you should love yourself enough that you can set boundaries. You weren't put on this Earth to take care of everyone else. They are on their own journey. Give yourself time to enjoy life, to relax and have some fun. There is no doubt that you should love others, but not to the extent that you don't have time for yourself.
Self love means to appreciate YOU, just the way that you are. Relax and BE human. That's a tough job all by itself. People seem to actually be going deeper into the belief that they're doing something wrong. You have never done anything "wrong".
This may surprise many of you, but I was recently 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 the extremely shortened version, but the basic idea is that YOU, as consciousness, 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. 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 and other possible ways of leaving. But you're here, you wanted the chance to experience this human life.
Since birth, it's your beliefs about yourself that have created who you are. Most of those "beliefs" don't even belong to you. Most of them came from society, religion, parents and teachers. It's their beliefs. Begin to question those beliefs. Is it really true or did someone else tell you that?
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 now. Many things have probably made you stronger. Love yourself first and you will attract more love. It's your vibration that creates your reality.
Self love is not selfish.
Going back to ascension. Simply put, with ascension you are gradually merging with your own consciousness. That part of you is PURE unconditional love. So 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?
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
In another ah-ha moment, I realized that our lives are actually perfect. Read the post called, "I Don't Get Upset Very Often" on my What's New page.
What is enlightenment?
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. Now he runs one of the fastest growing companies in the nation. Watch it here on You Tube.
