Throughout our lives we can forget how to love, honor and forgive ourselves. To remember the Source that created us in unconditional love, we should initiate the process of our evolution with The Practice of Self Respect. Our ego can tell us that self-worth depends on what others think or that what we own makes us better. Our spirit will tell us that we are always connected to loving energy without judgment or material possessions.
Moments of self-doubt can fool us into believing we are not worthy enough, we haven’t done enough, we aren’t smart enough, etc. The truth is we are part of the collective Spiritual Consciousness which is infinite and unlimited in the ability to feed our souls with wisdom and light. Our purposes, known and unknown, bring in the situations which help bring us into understanding of our inner ability to keep healing and moving forward in life.
When we live the life journey with curiosity and gratitude, we open up new thoughts and possibilities. We care less what others think as our opinion is what helps to drive our purpose. Our uniqueness becomes our best attribute. Our unwillingness to accept what has always been done keeps us motivated to seek out a better way.
The way in which we look at the world in general is a reflection of how we look at ourselves. If we think that there is hope for change and improvement with endless possibilities, we can exponentially thrive. If we think the Earth is a scary place with no hope of redemption, we will see ourselves without purpose and direction, a null number. When we believe and know that we are worthy of respect in our good intentions, we gain confidence. Our souls thrive when we are able to touch the higher frequencies and free ourselves of physical limitation, opinions, distractions and our own doubt.
We can learn to let go of negative thinking and its stagnant energy when we realize that these conditions keep us in a cycle to attract more of the same. Our intentions can get lost in anxiety, ego and the judgment of others if we live in and allow lower-energy attitudes to control our thoughts and actions. Instead of adopting these attitudes we can send healing thoughts to those who criticize, hate, bully and judge. We begin to understand that their opinions have no bearing on how we see ourselves and we have learned to love and respect ourselves and our journey in this lifetime.
Respect for others with their opinions and life choices is also a part of living in the higher frequencies of Source energy. Creatively, we can transmute negative energy back into light without dimming our own or another’s light in the process. With acceptance that we are all here together to learn, grow, evolve and help one another, we give up competing and start to share.
We should always remember that we were created in divine love and we all belong here. It is not an accident that we have all been born with purpose. Forgive others who live by judgment and opinion, they are only seeking to impress or deflate. Make peace with their bitterness and anger by understanding how letting it go sets us free from our own anger at their shallow cruelty. It’s really true that everyone we meet will have a different opinion of us based on their own realities and beliefs. One person might think we are amazing and wonderful, while another might say we are hard to get along with. None of what they think really has anything to do with us unless we let it. Self-respect is knowing how amazing and miraculous we really are without anyone having to tell us. When have unconditional love for ourselves, we create an energy that is felt by everyone and everything around us.
