A few months ago, I had the most wonderful experience of self-compassion and wanted to share it with you right away, but somehow got distracted. It’s been on my mind ever since, but somehow the feelings just didn’t quite match what I knew this topic was about and I didn’t want to do an unjustness of it. Today, I had the experience again and the morning is quiet so I’m ready to write you.
Not sure how it came about. I was doing my morning rituals to get my mind right for the day. I think at the time I was getting bogged down with difficulties in a project and my whole life seemed to be turned upside down. So as I made my conscious morning connection with the universe, I was asking why I hadn’t been feeling that good lately…then into my mind came to view myself with compassion.
I guess I had done this indirectly many times throughout my life, but this was different. I actually tried to view me, Wendy, from outside of myself to be able to look at me directly as if I were looking upon someone else. I’m a naturally compassionate person and had to just pretend that I was looking at another person to see what I could see.
When I find my gaze on another who looks hurt, defeated or scared, I naturally want to help them to get into a better place. For myself, I count on the things that I’ve learned in life to keep myself on track. I guess sometimes I need even more than that – and truly I know that I do, so I could quit acting surprised by it. (smile)
That first day, from what I observed, this is what I told myself:
Today, I returned to this practice as I realized last night some yet to be healed thinking processes that need my attention. The experience of self-compassion proved to be so liberating in its humility, and since it’s been on my mind this whole time, I thought it would be the perfect thing to do to return to love and forgiveness toward myself.
I definitely recommend giving this a try.
You will see yourself differently, through a new perspective. You will see your beautiful soul, yet one as a vulnerable human being. Your good intentions are revealed as the hurt and unsure child inside is doing the best s/he can and maybe too much of the unimportant things because of old confusions driving you to do it “right.” And in this moment, you will see, from the divine perspective, what is really right for you – what to release and which direction to go forward. And as you will feel compelled to come to your own rescue, you can give yourself those messages. And you can care for yourself in that moment, and going forward. You will see that you deserve all of the love that is yours ~ all of the love of the universe and in your personal relationships. And you will know, without a doubt, that you are pure love, and it’s OK. You are good enough and worthy of all that is good.
You are OK, and you will continue to be OK. You don’t have to try to be “perfect,” you are perfect just as you are. You begin to appreciate yourself and experience a deep love for You. You realize that everyone else is the same too ~ especially those who are closest to you.
“Appreciation of self and others, and self-love…is the closest vibrational match to Source (god, the universe).” Abraham/Hicks
The benefits of self-compassion:
I accept myself as a wonderful work in progress as I seek to allow the expansion of spirit within me. And as I regularly seek to be a channel to help others help themselves, I feel it necessary to reveal things about my own journey that may aid in making a connection to reveal our sameness in ways. I’m a life “coach” because after experiencing much adversity in my lifetime, I’ve become a seeker of self improvement and development to fill my life experience with more comfort and joy and therefore feel I have much to offer others as a mentor and guide to their own joys, development and comfort.
Again, I recommend that you try this practice of self-compassion sometime soon. You are worth the experience and all that you will find in it. You are a beautiful work in progress. As are all.
Much love to you ~
