Accountability Tip 66 – I Love You
A few years ago while reading some books by Louise Hay we learned about mirror work. This is where you look at yourself in the mirror and you say to yourself “I love you.” This simple act when repeated day after day opens you up to the vulnerable feelings and thoughts you have about yourself. Initially you may feel embarrassed or downright silly. But, if you have any hope of truly loving someone or anything else it starts with you. You will learn that it is okay to accept and give yourself love. This process will eventually cause you to really see you. Your thoughts and words about yourself will become more kind and loving.
Marianne Williams said, in a quote made famous by Nelson Mandela,
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us; its in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
Well there you go. Our thought for you today is love yourself, know yourself and walk in that truth. YOU, the awesome, magnificent, living, breathing expression of a loving God love yourself.
Much love, many blessings…Namaste!!! Sheila
