Happy February Everyone!!!
Self Love.... If we could buy it we would! But, that would be too easy. What seems to be easy, is loving others. Perhaps this is learned behavior. So, we love others, and care for others far better than we love and care for ourselves. As if we are not deserving of our own love, we seek the love and validation of others. We even charge and hold others responsible for our happiness. And, when there is no partner in our lives to share tender love we feel empty and alone. We begin to think that something is 'wrong' with us, and we need to clear this or clear that. We fail to realize that 'alone' is simply 'All One' with the Self. The same love and compassion we so freely give to others we forget to give to ourselves. Never giving ourselves permission to slow down and have an intimate relationship with our Self... just constant busy movement forward wanting or needing to assist, nurture, care for and love others. After all, people need us... Well, we're people too!
"With all our best intentions and rich resources, why is it so hard to slow down, simplify, and care for ourselves? Why do most clearing efforts fall short or peter out? Why are we so afraid to let go?
Our drive to attain and succeed comes at a great cost to the soul. We are malnourished, if not starved, when it comes to compassionate self-acceptance, awareness, and care. We yearn for simplicity but struggle to find it. We ache for balance but can't sustain it. There is no time to juggle it all, let alone
clear the things and thoughts that have caused us to feel so overwhelmed in the first place."
After years of study, deep inquiry, and personal experience, this is what Stephanie Bennett Vogt knows for sure:
- For clearing to last you need to put yourself first. You won't make a dent in reducing the stress and stuff until you've healed the patterns that created it. If you don't feel safe, you won't let go. Clearing is an inside job that begins and ends with you.
- For clearing to last you need to change your mindset. Clearing is not something you "do" or squeeze into your life. It's a way of life - a journey - that doesn't always add up, make sense, or go in a straight line. Clearing is not about "getting rid of." It's about letting go of the things and thoughts that get in the way of realizing your true nature and best life.
- For clearing to last you need to slow down. Clearing old habits and resisting behaviors is not possible until you slow it... way... down. In a world that is all about speed, this requires awareness. Daily doses of it. "Slow drip" efforts applied consistently over time are the real game changer here.
As I began to love myself I found that anguish and emotional suffering are only warning signs that I was living against my own truth. Today, I know, this is "AUTHENTICITY".
As I began to love myself I understood how much it can offend somebody if I try to force my desires on this person, even though I knew the time was not right and the person was not ready for it, and even though this person was me. Today I call it "RESPECT".
As I began to love myself I stopped craving for a different life, and I could see that everything that surrounded me was inviting me to grow. Today I call it "MATURITY".
As I began to love myself I understood that at any circumstance, I am in the right place at the right time, and everything happens at the exact right moment. So I could be calm. Today I call it "SELF-CONFIDENCE".
As I began to love myself I quit stealing my own time, and I stopped designing huge projects for the future. Today, I only do what brings me joy and happiness, things I love to do and that make my heart cheer, and I do them in my own way and in my own rhythm. Today I call it "SIMPLICITY".
As I began to love myself I freed myself of anything that is no good for my health - food, people, things, situations, and everything that drew me down and away from myself. At first I called this attitude a healthy egoism. Today I know it is "LOVE OF ONESELF".
As I began to love myself I quit trying to always be right, and ever since I was wrong less of the time. Today I discovered that is "MODESTY".
As I began to love myself I refused to go on living in the past and worrying about the future. Now, I only live for the moment, where everything is happening. Today I live each day, day by day, and I call it "FULFILLMENT".
As I began to love myself I recognized that my mind can disturb me and it can make me sick. But as I connected it to my heart, my mind became a valuable ally. Today I call this connection "WISDOM OF THE HEART".
We no longer need to fear arguments, confrontations or any kind of problems with ourselves or others. Even stars collide, and out of their crashing new worlds are born. Today I know "THAT IS LIFE"!"
May the Magic and Wonder of Life
be your Constant Companion!!

Look after yourself by acknowledging your desires and needs and taking steps to meet them. Examine and note your gifts, talents and achievements.
When you accept all aspects of yourself, you feel centered and confident. Then you can genuinely acknowledge others.
Become aware of and
nurture the good qualities of
the people in your life so that they feel relaxed and happy
in your presence.
Angel wisdom reminds you to recognize who you truly are-- an evolved spirit in a human body. When you acknowledge your spiritual dimensions, you will align with your true self and
your spirit will soar.
Remember Who You Are
You are a powerful, loving, and creative child of God.
You are very Loved!
You are made in the image and likeness of your Creator,
so you embody aspects
of all those qualities.
Your inner Divine light is pure and bright in truth, and no mistakes can undo God's handiwork of true perfection. Don't be afraid of your power, your magnificence,
or your wisdom.
When you succeed,
you inspire others.
