Compassion for yourself is love in action. To love our darker side we must have compassion for ourselves. Instead of hiding from the parts of ourselves that hurt or give us pain, learn to love those parts. They are our greatest teachers of compassion. If we an have compassion for ourselves we can give it to others. “a different attitude toward unwanted stuff: if it’s painful, you become willing not just to endure it but also to let it awaken your heart and soften you. You learn to embrace it.” Pema Chodron.
This morning I was blessed to see a Quail being chased by a humming bird. I looked up the animal totem meaning and this is what is said:
“Quail is here to let you know that explosive action is required right now in order to accomplish your goal. You must move now before your opportunity has disappeared or before danger has over takes you. This bird can also be reminding you that you need to nourish your body as well as your soul in order to foster abundance. Taking care of yourself is a high priority right now. Giving to yourself is just as important as giving to others.” ANIMAL TOTEMS
LOVE and honor your inner child and break out the crayons. Unleash your creativity, play with color. Through the eyes of your inner child you will see beauty all around you. Have you ever been to a music festival and watched a young child dance with abandonment to the beat? Look at the pure joy and freedom expressed on their faces. Inside you, buried under all the false programming, your inner child is itching to get out. Creativity of any kind is a start. PLAY, LAUGH, LOVE and CREATE.
Today is all you have so make it the best day of your life. Expect a great day and radiate thoughts of LOVE and watch your sun shine. If it is a little cloudy in your life just believe that the sun is always shining above the clouds and this too shall pass. The light of LOVE lives in your heart. Even when someone knows how to push your buttons just remember they are here to teach you something, perhaps compassion, on your life’s journey. Then let it go and SHINE.
You can start your day with two choices…LOVE or FEAR. When you are worried or unhappy you are focused on fear. Choose LOVE. Look at every situation, person and thing and send love. Soon you will be radiating LOVE and your will attract loving energies into your life. When your heart is full you can change the world, but it starts with you.
“You must clearly love and accept yourself for who you are, and this is not easy to do. When you can lovingly recognized yourself as your own creation, you free yourself from the mass-induced trance of powerless living. You must learn to honestly and openly express your feelings and emphasize your won self worth as you learn to develop a true love for who you are.” Path of Empowerment
