Greetings Beloved Soul Family,
So I’ve spoken many times before on the Importance of Self-Love, and I’m being guided to dive a bit deeper into the understanding of what Self-Love really is. Recently, I experienced a personal epiphany that has deeply shifted my very way of living. It amazes me every time I discover ways in which I am responding to life from an unconscious program. Living with awareness is all that is necessary if one desires to transform one’s ever shifting reality. It is my hope that in each heartfelt sharing here on this Mindfulness Blog that my awareness will spread out, touch, and illuminate each reader in the most inspiring and transformational way.
So what does it mean to practice Self-Love? This is an important question for each of us to ask to contemplate, Moment by Moment. I am grateful to share my own understanding on this most important topic. However, what I hope to Inspire in each of you reading this is the courage to ask this question for yourself and to be still and really listen to the wisdom of your own Sacred Heart.
What I am realizing is that Self-Love is THE Most Important Thing. It is the solid foundation that each of us must patiently lay down brick-by-brick if we are to truly create a Joyous, Conscious Life of Creation. For those of us that continue to put ourselves last and ignore our own need, we shall continue to co-create pain and suffering through our unconscious programs.
I Choose Consciousness: I state this because it truly does come down to Choice. You have the power to Choose & I have the power to Choose. And what we Choose will be a HUGE factor in regards to the lives we each create.
Let me be very clear about what I mean when I say “living from unconscious program.” When we are young we are taught things, taught how the humans who are raising us feel about life. So, if let’s say our parent or parents are very strict about their religious beliefs and their political views, they will “teach us” what “they” like and dislike. That being said, they start working on our very open, receptive, pure minds and this is where ‘The Programing’ begins. Now, this programming is not limited to our parents–our neighbors, peers, teachers, elders, or anyone we spend any amount of time with will share “Their” influence on “Our” choices. If we accept “Their” opinions as truth we take them into ourselves and we become smaller and smaller, and we distort our wide open vision to a very narrow limited vision.
I want to be crystal clear on this programming piece because releasing “The Program” is a vital aspect on the Journey of Self-Love, aka the Journey of Authenticity. We must first make it a priority to practice constant awareness. Awareness of our thoughts, our opinions, our judgments, and our choices. Awareness is Becoming “The Watcher or Witness,” and it is through awareness that we transform that which is unconscious into Love and Consciousness. Our awareness is like the sun Illuminating the shadowy places in our lives. And where the light shines, beauty blossoms.
If you are reading this, You have the awareness to transform your life! And your awareness will be like a Magical superpower in transforming your world…If You allow it.
Again, we all have the power of choice so if you decide to remain unconscious then you will continue to live out the same unconscious programs–and cycles of drama, pain, and suffering will be your chosen reality. In choosing to create in unconscious programming we shall create suffering for ourselves as well as others who choose to participate in unconsciousness with us. So, I want to again be Super clear…We All have the freedom to choose. The moment a human becomes aware of the game, Conscious choices can be made.
Now, let’s go back to the part about “unconscious programs,” where others “out there” projected their thoughts, feelings, opinions, and emotions at us like lighting-speed shooting bullets. Many of us didn’t even realize what was hitting us, and many as children didn’t know what to do with all that ammunition coming at us day in and day out. To give it to you straight, We all did the best we could at the time (including your parents and influencers). Many of us “learned” early that in order to survive, in order to get stuff, we had to play “Their game,” we had to push our opinions down inside of us. We had to accept “Their” limitations, “Their” fears and worries…The list goes on and on. Well, that game can end when you’re ready for it to!
The interesting thing that happens when you start “playing” other peoples games is you can get lost in them really quickly. Before you know it you’ve completely convinced Yourself that You are these people’s opinions, limitations, fears, preferences…You lose You, when you choose to play “The Unconscious Game.”
The Beautiful thing I’m here to share with You however, is that it’s Never too late to wake up. Even if you’re literally laying on your death bed reading this, it’s Not too late for you. You can choose to BE Aware and Conscious Now!
A magical thing happens when we become aware, it’s like a baby opening their eyes for the first time. At first that light feels blinding and we may flutter our eyes a bit as we adjust to the intensity. But once we Open our eyes and choose to SEE we want to keep them open, we want to see. Closing them again becomes painful.
I Observe so many humans that struggle in regards to living a “Spiritual Life,” as if they have to become super serious in order to be worthy of Nirvana. It’s so ironic because in truth, it’s when we are at play that we are the most authentic versions of ourselves. When we let go of the control and the intense grip many have on life, life can flow through us. Magic happens!
When life flows through us Magic Happens! We start to enjoy life, we stop living in our limited minds and start Thriving from our expansive hearts. This is a necessary piece in the Self-Love puzzle.
As we begin living from our open hearts we begin to ask our hearts what they Love, what they feel? What they choose? And here is where WE Become One with Love and with Life. It is in our simple Conscious Connection with our own Heart’s Wisdom that we Activate the power of Self-Love.
Suddenly, we are Not pulled into others Drama or Suffering like we once were. Suddenly we SEE so clearly that which is Best for US. We no longer FEEL needy for Love “out there” because we have Remembered We Are Love Now “Within.”
This is a Sacred Rebirthing Moment for a Soul. The moment we become truly Conscious of our own Sacred Hearts and the game of pain and limitation that we used to participate in. Suddenly, there is no interest in that pain and we release the limiting story. Suddenly, Love is the only thing that makes any sense and it is our bright shining beacon of light Illuminating the path forward through the darkness.
Self-Love listens to its own Sacred Heart. Self-Love Cares about its own Sacred Truth. Self-Love Knows that it is Love, therefore it is never needy for Love. Self-Love Knows and Honors its Knowing. Self-Love Leads from its own authentic Wisdom, it has no need to follow, or “try” to fit in. Self-Love is Courageous…Limitless…Fearless & Free!
Self-Love is the Only path to Freedom, Unity & Liberation.
Those choosing to live in the illusion of separation and pain cannot simultaneously live from a place of Self-Love. One must choose either Illusion/Suffering or Self-Love/Freedom. That choice has always been and shall always BE Your choice to make. I encourage You to choose wisely my Beloved Soul Family, for this ONE choice will ignite a great Transformation for your own life and every life you connect with. That Reality will appear very different from those co-creating via Self-Love and Consciousness and those co-creating from the illusion of separation and fear.
I make my choice every Moment, I pause, I Listen to my own Wise & Sacred Heart, and I choose to Honor my Knowing with Courage & Confidence this & Every Sacred Moment!
Namaste, Tawnya Love and Source Oneness
