As I was doing my morning contemplating and journaling. What came to mind was the word ‘protection’. Life was sending me one hard knock after another as it sometimes does, I was taking it hard and blaming myself. The person I needed protection from was myself! No wonder I wasn’t feeling my best.
After a little tapping and then surrendering to God, I was able to change my mindset, let go of the self-blame, and give myself some compassion.
Love is oxygen for the heart and soul
The Beatles song is right, “All you need is Love”. All we need is to love ourselves first and when we love ourselves first, we automatically love others. It is like a fragrance that exudes out to others. Love is oxygen for the heart and soul.
In essence, we are loving the little child within us. Some people were not taught love and acceptance when they were little and so when times are hard it’s easy to slip back into the old pattern of thinking. It can be hard for some to even know what it is like to feel loved or lovable. They don’t feel worthy of love and so it’s hard for them to give it to themselves, to others, and also to receive it.
Turn to God
I recommend to turn towards heaven and ask God to show you how much you are loved. He is faithful and will answer your prayers. He showed His undying love for each and every one of us when He sent His son Jesus to die on the cross for us. You are that valuable to Him and to Jesus!
You are valuable, not only because you are made in the image and likeness of God, who knit you in your mother’s womb. He is actually a really loving Father, who cherishes you and made you with a unique divine purpose. With God, you are never an orphan but a beloved child. Never forget that. We are lovable (in spite of our faults), simply because we are His children.
Try to not judge yourself too harshly, take care of your needs first and then others. After all, the greatest commandment is to “Love God with your whole heart, mind, and soul and to love your neighbor as yourself.” It’s hard to love anyone if you don’t know how to love yourself first.
Learn to Feel Good in your Body
Learn what it’s like to feel good in your body, relaxed and at ease, and ask God to help you find that peace and love which is beyond all understanding. Love the little child within you if he or she didn’t get it when young. Our Dad in heaven is ready and waiting to be your loving dad.
When you are feeling down, tense, angry, etc, it is because you are becoming the hard judgmental adult within yourself. After tapping down these negative thoughts, choose instead, love, acceptance, gentleness, forgiveness, and compassion. Everyone deserves it! Run to get the healing you need and when you get the right healing you will know, you will start to relax and to feel at peace in your body and in your heart and soul. You are worth it!
Much love always,
