Why Self-Love? Loving myself is a process. A process of discovery about who, what, how, and why I am in this world. I have come from unacknowledged low-grade depression, denial of feelings, self-abuse, and self-sabotage. I have brought these to Consciousness through this process of self-discovery. I am finally ready to uncover what is really going on. Ready to uncover the patterns that have kept me blind as to how I am in this world. Willing to see what is in front of my face. It has been like a hand on my face. So much a part of me that I did not even know the hand, (my negative patterns), was on my face. The very act of putting these words into the world means I am ready to change. It is a process. For me, it has been ongoing for 12 years and still counting.
Steps to Self-Love
More than the mere parroting of agreement, acceptance is an acknowledgement that I, you, we, see what is. "What is" does not define what we would like to happen, but what is really going on. "What is" deals in the here and now, not some expectation or attachment we may "need, want, or desire". Needs, wants, desires, attachments, and expectations are all products of "what is not". My definition of acceptance is acknowledging "what is".
By acknowledging my needs, I take responsibility for those needs. I act upon those needs. I am fully in the process of change, the process of Loving Self. I choose to bring all the negative aspects of myself into Love.
Soul has always been available to us. In the process of Self-Love, acceptance, and alignment, Soul is always present. We are learning to listen to Soul's messages. When we make the decision to Awaken, Soul offers us the opportunities that will carry us through "our stuff" and guide us to Self-Love. We will often "exit" back into ego and our ego dramas. Soul always awaits us in the Serene Center of Our Being Within Our Heart. Soul is always there. Please remember, Soul will never intrude upon our choices. Only after we make the Conscious decision to change, does Soul actively begin to assist us.
