When we start becoming aware of ourselves, when we start our awakening process, one of the most important factors to work on is SELF-LOVE!
Most of us are never taught how to do this, maybe we have even been taught that it is selfish. It is hard to reprogram what you have learned, but it is oh so necessary.
When I was first confronted with these “Love yourself, look after yourself, only Love is real” sentences, I was of the opinion that this Love & Light stuff was throwing pink cotton wool balls at problems and pretending they didn’t exist. Well, at the time I was at the beginning of my path and had much to learn. Now I think differently and completely agree with those sentiments. But if you feel the same way as I did, I get that. I know where you’re coming from.
Okay, now we are intellectually aware that we should Love ourselves. But how exactly does that work? Do we just get up one morning and decide, okay, today is going to be the day that I start loving myself?
Well, yes, sort of, it starts with this decision, and then it takes work. Yes, I know – Love shouldn’t take work, so we like to think, but I have NEWS FOR YOU – YES IT ABSOLUTELY DOES! And it takes patience, and a willingness to get to know ourselves fully. A willingness to dive deep into ourselves and peel back the layers. A willingness to take a look at our shadows, at everything that lurks deep inside of us and makes us doubt ourselves, makes us dislike, yes, sometimes even hate ourselves.
These shadows are what stops us from loving ourselves, just as we are. It’s okay not to be perfect, it’s okay to have flaws, it’s okay not to look like the media brainwashes us into thinking that we should look. It’s okay to be just as we are.
That is the hardest part of all. Accepting ourselves. And here comes something even harder to hear: We expect others to LOVE us as we are, even if we think that we are not worth loving ourselves. How is that supposed to work? We can only expect others to Love us, if we open ourselves up to Love. And that can only happen when we start to Love ourselves.
Yes, that’s the be all and end all. We are here, born out of Love, sent here in Love, and Love is the hardest thing for us to come to terms with. LOVE is all there is, only LOVE is real. That’s how it is. That’s the goal, to come to that conclusion. To live a life full of Love, Love for ourselves, Love for each other, Love for our planet, Love for the universe. Unconditional, all encompassing LOVE.
