Begin to love yourself

A Message from Charlie Chaplin: Begin to Love Yourself

Love Yourself“As I began to love myself I recognized that my mind can disturb me and it can make me sick. But as I connected it to my heart, my mind became a valuable ally. Today I call this connection “WISDOM OF THE HEART”

We are all exactly in the right place at the right time. We all receive the gifts of what we need to see and hear and experience on any given day. With that in mind, each day I take a few moments to ask the infinite, the Universe, God, to show me what it is that I need to see.

While scrolling around looking for a quote for a Facebook post I came across this insightful, and rather profound, piece from Charlie Chaplin. There are many truths found within his words and, to be honest, I must have read the first line over and over.

As we move through our lives we all learn, and continue to learn, many lessons. As we become more aware, we are drawn to seeking deeper meaning. What Chaplin has eloquently written reads like a “that was then, this is now” and serves as a reminder to love ourselves. It serves as a reminder that as we begin to love ourselves we become MORE of ourselves.

We begin to see and glean and act as ourselves because anything less is not loving who we are. Loving ourselves and seeing with this new perspective also allows us to connect with the wisdom of our hearts and forgive….

“As I began to love myself I found that anguish and emotional suffering are only warning signs that I was living against my own truth. Today, I know, this is “AUTHENTICITY”.

As I began to love myself I understood how much it can offend somebody if I try to force my desires on this person, even though I knew the time was not right and the person was not ready for it, and even though this person was me. Today I call it “RESPECT”.

As I began to love myself I stopped craving for a different life, and I could see that everything that surrounded me was inviting me to grow. Today I call it “MATURITY”.

As I began to love myself I understood that at any circumstance, I am in the right place at the right time, and everything happens at the exactly right moment. So I could be calm. Today I call it “SELF-CONFIDENCE”.

As I began to love myself I quit stealing my own time, and I stopped designing huge projects for the future. Today, I only do what brings me joy and happiness, things I love to do and that make my heart cheer, and I do them in my own way and in my own rhythm. Today I call it “SIMPLICITY”.

As I began to love myself I freed myself of anything that is no good for my health – food, people, things, situations, and everything that drew me down and away from myself. At first I called this attitude a healthy egoism. Today I know it is “LOVE OF ONESELF”.

As I began to love myself I quit trying to always be right, and ever since I was wrong less of the time. Today I discovered that is “MODESTY”.

As I began to love myself I refused to go on living in the past and worrying about the future. Now, I only live for the moment, where everything is happening. Today I live each day, day by day, and I call it “FULFILLMENT”.

As I began to love myself I recognized that my mind can disturb me and it can make me sick. But as I connected it to my heart, my mind became a valuable ally. Today I call this connection “WISDOM OF THE HEART”.

We no longer need to fear arguments, confrontations or any kind of problems with ourselves or others. Even stars collide, and out of their crashing new worlds are born. Today I know “THAT IS LIFE”!”~Charles Chaplin (Reprinted from Goodreads.com)

Life is beautiful and much to short to spend it in self-judgement, self-loathing or self-punishment. Begin to love yourself. Connect with the wisdom of your heart and watch as a new world is born.~Shine Your Light Debbie

Choose to Walk in the Light

SunshineaddedEvery day of your life you have the option to walk in the light or to take cover and hide amidst the shadows of darkness. Walking in the light doesn’t mean there are no challenges and everything is perfect. It means you choose to face your outer challenges by looking into your deepest darkest self to heal from the inside out.

When you walk in the light you must face your fears, uncover what is hidden and strive to ask questions which lead you to a deeper understanding of yourself. It takes courage and strength to truly walk in the light for you must forgive yourself for past choices and transgressions which you might not want to acknowledge.  Walking in the light is much more than just ‘deciding’ you will be happy at any given moment because that moment will pass and then what? Your decision to be happy is a good one and is the start to shifting your energy but once that moment has passed if you haven’t uncovered and let go of what is deeply hidden you once again find yourself staring into the darkness.

Walking in the light means you are choosing to see yourself and at times you may feel vulnerable because as you shine your light  others can see you. There is no hiding in the light. You cannot hide from yourself and you cannot hide from others. When you walk in the light you are choosing to boldly be yourself and show others who you really are without fear of being judged, ridiculed or invalidated. This is probably the hardest thing to do. We all want to be liked, loved and accepted and there are times we choose to walk in someone else’s darkness lest we shine our light too brightly when they are hurting or going through a challenging time.

As you walk in the light there are times you will feel alone and isolated but this is not because you are alone; You are NEVER alone. It is because as you clear out the old and transition to the new you need time to reflect and process. Do not resist what you are feeling and never give up. This is precisely the time to bring in the universal energy of love and forgiveness. There are many others who choose to walk in the light and the brighter your light, the more you will attract others who are doing the same.

When you choose to walk in the light you are consciously choosing to generate energy instead of constantly responding to the energy of others. You are choosing to forge a path and illuminate it with your vibrancy. You are choosing to stop blaming, judging or thinking you are better than others because those vibrations come from the ego self not the true essence of spirit.

Walking in the light is a path of self discovery and no one else can do it for you. In fact it is not about anything that comes from outside of you. Walking in the light comes from the inside. It is about you shining from within so brightly that your path is clear to you. Walking in the light is choosing is choosing to honor YOU and your own light.

Honor and behold the divinity in you and others. Allow your light to shine from within and illuminate your path. Choose light over darkness. I choose to walk in the light. Won’t you join me?~Shine Your Light Debbie
