We are on Week #6, and it’s time to assess how it’s going. As you’ve been following along, attempting to explore your heart, you’ll no doubt have some observations. I know that I do.
You can look back six weeks ago, where we first discovered what it is we had lost, and notice how differently you are feeling today. Hopefully there is improvement. Also hopefully, you know what it is that you have been missing and how to supply it.
There’s this thing that happens when you feel unconditionally loved. It is like coming home. This is a place where it is all okay. This is that place that is safe and comfortable with a sense of permanence. You can relax here.
What happens when you get to this place is that you feel a mixture of peace, joy and excitement all at once.
You discover that you are free. There are no reasons to hide yourself, or conjure yourself, or pretend. The reasons to do so are imaginary. They don’t exist within unconditional love. The only thing that shows up there is truth.
You will see yourself with true sight through wide open eyes. Once experienced, you’ll know complete acceptance. You feel empowered. It is like standing naked in front of a crowd without embarrassment or shame or hesitation, completely confident that you’ll be seen truly, known absolutely with all of your inconsistencies, and loved beyond measure. What follows for you is a sense of validation and awareness of self.
This is you and you are worthy.
This is where sovereignty begins. You feel unstoppable when you begin always from a place of self-love. You know yourself. There are no surprises or reasons to doubt. Therefore, you do not require anyone else’s approval, acceptance or permission. You are all that and completely sure of that truth.
Complete self-acceptance is pure power. From here, you become emboldened to seek connection. And connection, fellow Questers, is where all the fun starts.
Connection is found through eye contact. We access each other’s core with our gaze. Our eyes are like portals to our souls. This connection can happen anywhere. In the checkout line, while signing for a package, on a walk, or at the ATM. It turns out, there are pairs of eyes everywhere!
Not all pairs will let you in, but you’d be surprised how many isolated souls are out there, willing to say hello. This is a Quest. A Quest for Love. Love is found in so many more places than you’ve imagined.
Consider the people you walk around and with each day as potential connections instead of strangers. It’s pretty amazing. Doing so turns errands, jobs and walks into adventures!
Seek now to find the eyes that are open to connection; open to accepting, sharing, oneness. Success happens in a nanosecond. No long-term commitment is required. This is an acknowledgement of each other, of the truth of each other. We are sacred and full of life. We are so much more than mom, dad, aunt, sister, brother, uncle, son, daughter, worker, student or citizen. We are brilliant bits of eternal essence.
Fellow Questers, you are the brave ones, risking rejection by opening your heart. In that moment of true sight, you are both explorer and guide. For as you show yourself fearlessly, others will see you and, just maybe, be emboldened to do the same.
Because they will have seen self-love embodied in you, and that is an uncommon and glorious sight! You are able to risk failure and non-acceptance because you don’t need it in order to feel love! You love yourself enough for everyone!
If another pair of eyes meets yours with their shields up and firmly secured, it’s okay. They just aren’t ready yet. They haven’t completed their own Quest. They just need more time. You have given them something to think about and a bit of encouragement. The earth didn’t open up and swallow you both. What happened was much better. In that brief moment of connection, your worth and their worth were both acknowledged. Everything is still in place.
If that other pair of eyes is ready? Watch out!
It’s going to feel remarkable. You will feel noticed. Once you do, it isn’t so lonely out there.
The thing about self-love is that it makes you stronger. It supplies you with courage to take risks; emotional risks. It inspires you to speak up; to speak truth. Self-love inspires you, period.
Contrary to mainstream nonsense, love does not weaken you. It makes you irresistible and unstoppable. Self-love is a knowing. It cannot be denied or discredited by any action or any other. It is raw and quiet power.
Once you know self-love, you’ll realize that it is all that you need. You become one with your life and you tend you move through your days with self-confidence.
Self-love is your super-power.
See you next week!
