Once upon a time in meditation, I received a crystal clear message that I am absolutely and eternally wonderful; and the only problem I have ever had is not knowing that.
Really? The only problem I have ever had is not knowing Iâ€™m wonderful? Wow!
In that moment, I was freed from my lifetime belief that there was something wrong with me.
In that moment, I really understood that I could stop trying to fix myself because I wasnâ€™t ever broken.
In that moment, along with the realization that I am absolutely and eternally wonderful, came the knowing that so is everyone else. Huge! Life changing! Blissful!
Over the next few weeks and months, as I settled into this joyful and empowering knowledge, I began to shift from a focus on self-improvement to a focus on self-acceptance.
From the age of about 19, I had been a self-improvement junkie. I read every book and took every course that promised to make me a better, happier person and to fix what was wrong with me.
But, for me, that lifelong commitment to self-improvement had been based on the belief that, if I just worked hard enough, I could overcome all the terrible things that were certainly wrong with me and finally become â€œgood enough.â€
Self-improvement driven by a belief in not being good enough is both endless and unfulfilling.
Imagine for a moment how it would feel to simply accept yourself - who you are, everything youâ€™ve ever done or not done, how much you weigh, how much money you make - everything about yourself just the way you are.
Thereâ€™s a fear, I know. You might be thinking it right now. It goes like this: â€œWell, if I really accept myself, wonâ€™t I lose all motivation to do anything and stop trying altogether and just live in my pajamas?â€ Nope! In fact, itâ€™s exactly the opposite. Rather than zapping motivation, full self-acceptance actually frees energy and creativity and makes real self-improvement much easier and much more fun.
From the high vibration of self-acceptance:
* youâ€™re aligned with Source, with Who You Really Are
* youâ€™re a vibrational match to your desires
* you feel worthy and deserving
* you release judgment and fully accept others
* you broadcast a vibration that allows others to fully accept you
Transformational Process. If youâ€™re willing to give self-acceptance a try, contemplate this prayer for 5 minutes a day for one week:
â€œOh, God, show me the truth about myself,
no matter how beautiful it is.â€
- Macrina Weiderkher
Do this process and, at the end of one week, youâ€™ll be well on your way to feeling the relief, the high vibration, and the bliss of self-acceptance.
