Sometimes We Fall

135Sometimes we fall. Sometimes we fall, get up, and fall again. Sometimes we don’t know why, we just know we fell and all that matters is getting back up. In the silence of our minds and the beating of our hearts, we know what we need to do to get back up. Facing ourselves and our truth can be difficult but it can also be powerful beyond measure. Our truth always lies within ~ anything that causes us to fall will always be found in our outer life.

Letting go of your outer life is an essential step toward getting back up because it leaves but one thing ~ it leaves the power within, the all-knowing, the greatest part of who we are. It leaves your Inner Life. Letting go of your outer life means letting go of anything or anyone that causes stress, anxiety, sadness, pain, heartache, dis-ease, imbalance, depression, addictions, anger, hatred, lack or unhappiness. None of these things you will find in your Inner Life.

37Letting go does not necessarily mean getting rid of (unless of course you know you need to). It means turning your focus from your outer life to your Inner Life. It means letting go of all resistance to what is and holding on to the here and now. When you focus yourself into the present moment, allowing yourself to feel and live the fullness of who you truly are, the things causing you to “fall” do not exist because they are not a part of your present moment experience. They are not a part of your Inner Life. Any and all things that cause an imbalance within yourself comes from the past or the future. It is never from the here and now.

41Your Inner Life is the non-physical part of who you are ~ pure, positive, ever-expanding vibrational energy. It is the core and the connection to all that is, all that ever was, and all that will ever be. Your Inner Life is where you will find the purest and truest “form” of love, inner-peace, balance, abundance, well-being, joy and happiness. It is the part of you that will keep you in balance so that you don’t fall again.

So when you start to feel as if you are going to fall again, let go of your outer life, focus inward, and allow your Inner Life take you to where you want to be.

If true and lasting happiness is what you seek, seek first from within. Live, breathe and be your Inner Life. Quiet your mind, focus solely on the present moment and allow the power of your Inner Life guide you to where you want to be ….

Appreciating Yourself, Completely

351When you become consumed with negative feelings about yourself, it is nearly impossible to see anything, let alone yourself, in a positive light.  You are absent of worthiness and full of self-doubt.  You get caught in a never-ending cycle of self-defeating behaviors and before you know it, you cannot find meaning or purpose in your life.  This state of mind will eventually affect your overall well-being, not to speak of causing you to become out of tune with your Inner Life.

I know how difficult it can be to feel good about yourself when you are completely down.  Sometimes, in order to find and feel appreciation for who we are, regardless of how we got to where we are or what we did, it may serve us well to look outside ourselves first.  Select something outside yourself that makes you feel good and then feel appreciation for it until you feel a shift in your energy…..and you will. Whatever you do, stay focused on whatever it may be that makes you feel better until it begins to take form within you. Once you start to feel the appreciation within you, it’s time to turn inward and allow your Inner Life guide you to where you want to be.

355From this point forward, fill yourself up with the people, places, things, thoughts and feelings that bring you the most joy and happiness. Find appreciation for all of God’s perfect creations.  Once your positive momentum gets moving, allow yourself the joy in appreciating yourself, completely.  Appreciate everything there is to appreciate – get up close and personal with YOU. Before you know it, the all-knowing, pure positive energy will start pouring out of you, and then there will be unconditional self-love. It is then that the darkness fades away and the light shines through!!!!

If true and lasting happiness is what you seek, seek first from within.  Live, breathe and be your Inner Life.  Quiet your mind, focus solely on the present moment and allow the power of your Inner Life guide you to where you want to be ….

Love & Light,
