Dear Ones, we invite you today to treat yourself like a beloved. For the entire day, we wish for you to consciously think loving thoughts about yourself, to celebrate your innate goodness, to acknowledge your many contributions and talents, to embrace your innocence and divinity. You might be surprised to see how challenging that is!
If you find this difficult, be easy with yourself. Simply see it as a sign of how much you are missing your own love and a wonderful opportunity to step into bringing yourself back into fullness. If you catch yourself having negative thoughts about yourself, we recommend you stop and ask yourself if that is really true. Imagine yourself standing before you as a five year old child. Would you say it then? At what age did you decide you didn't deserve your own love?
If you catch yourself criticizing yourself over something that you truly desire to change, how can you do it in a kinder way? Could you shift from berating yourself over what is unwanted into encouraging yourself into your new, preferred expression of self? Which do you feel would be more effective in creating the changes you seek? Can you see that you will never be able to shame yourself into enlightenment?
It is time. It is time to shift your focus to the wonder that is divinely and uniquely you. It is time to own your beauty and contributions you make to the planet just by being you. It is time to create the exact conditions that make it safe and supported to shine your brightest light like never before. The world is waiting for you to step into that full and glorious expression of self. ~Archangel Gabriel through Shelley Young
