"Love who and what you are and what you do. Laugh at yourself and at life, and nothing can touch you. It's all temporary anyway. Next lifetime you will do it differently anyway, so why not do it differently right now?" Louise Hay
Who looks back at you as you look into a mirror? Is what you see in the mirror what other people see when they look at you? What would it be like to live in a world without mirrors or cameras? Would we rely more on how others respond to us to get a “picture” of what we look like and would looks then become less important than how we feel about ourselves? We tend to judge ourselves so harshly and the mirrored image can be what we use to confirm the criticism. It can also be our friend if we look beyond the lines and crevices, looking deeply into the eyes of the soul and seeing the perfection of our created being. When was the last time you looked into a mirror without criticism, simply accepting that the image staring back at you is pure love and light?
Dear Angels, we are so hard on ourselves as we compare what we look like physically to others we see in our world. The illusion of a perfect human body keeps us in the false belief that there is something wrong with ourselves if we do not measure up to what society deems we should look like. How do we best deal with this while we are in our human bodysuit?
Dear Ones, you take yourselves much too seriously. What you look and sound like are uniquely you and you chose to come into the existence you are in. It was no accident. If you find yourself struggling with your self-image of the body you are in, step away and become the observer. When you are in the midst of a situation you cannot see if from a higher perspective. Thus, giving yourself permission to pause and observe is the best thing you can do. When you return to look in the mirror again, look with your spiritual eyes instead of the ego comparison that you had previously been doing. Find what is right with that image. What do you like about you? Can you fully accept that person you see? Can you see the innocence that is there? Can you smile and be gentle with yourself? When you are comfortable looking yourself in the eyes and saying “I love you” then you can be more open to the possibility of others seeing you with that same innocence and worthiness. Is there something you perceive as a flaw in that image? Can you start by saying “thank you” for being flawed? Accepting yourself as you are will lead you to seeing everything about you as perfect. Stop judging yourself so harshly. Lighten up and laugh with your image and then look once more and see your beauty. You are a magnificent being of love and light. There are no mistakes. Allow yourself to be beautiful in your eyes. You certainly are that to us and to all of Divinity.
Dear Angels, thank you for this gift of your love and acceptance. I love you. Namaste y’all.
Today, I promise to cultivate a life where my soul feels safe in my body.
