You simply cannot move into acceptance of all that is available to you, or the experience of unity consciousness, and reject yourselves at the same time. All must begin within, and that means accepting all aspects of yourself.
Many speak of the importance of shadow work, and we agree it can be an important part of your journey of self acceptance. But a great number of human beings are so hard on themselves that they refuse to see the good in themselves, which is just as problematic.
Dear Ones, we urge you to embrace all aspects of self. If there are parts of you that are in pain and acting out, acknowledge them and love them. But it is equally important that you celebrate the wondrous parts of self, as well!
Move out of troubleshooting mode with yourselves. If there is something that needs your love and attention, it will come up of its own accord. It is a wonderful practice to end your day acknowledging the good you did. How were you the love?
Perhaps you reached out with care to a friend. Maybe you watered or planted flowers to tend to the earth. It could be you fed and cared for animals. Did you meditate or do healing? That not only served you, but the whole, as well. Maybe you got out of bed and faced the day and that was more than enough.
Ending the day celebrating your successes, no matter how small, is an act of gratitude for yourself. It anchors the expression of your beingness and acknowledges your innate goodness. It allows you to start to see yourself from a much more balanced space of inclusion and acknowledgement, and that will serve you far better than your negative self talk ever can. It is our greatest desire that you will start to see yourselves with the same wonder and love as we do. ~Archangel Gabriel though Shelley Young
