To Thine Own Self Be True

Reminders on how we can be kinder to ourselves.

Responsibility Versus Blame: Responsibility is making a conscious choice on how you will respond to a situation or idea. How can you learn from this experience? What can you learn from this experience? Blame creates guilt, guilt creates punishment and punishment creates pain. Respond to yourself and life in a loving way.

Relax and Meditate: Relaxation is essential to the healing process. We can't heal if we are tense. Mediation and deep breathing helps to be centered. Tell yourself that you love you and all is well. Notice how much easier your body is. Do this several times a day. What is it you need to know today? You can consider this question during meditation. Meditation creates the space in which we can quiet down and listen to your inner self. Become connected to yourself, through meditation.

Affirmations: Praise yourself as much as you can daily. Tell yourself, I love you. What can you do today to make yourself happy? Begin to learn to trust yourself. You deserve a GREAT life and to be treated as the top priority.  Don't be unwilling to accept good. Questions to ask.

  • What do you feel you deserve?
  • What is it you want that you do not have?
  • Do you always have to earn in order to deserve? 
  • Do you feel you deserve?
  • What belief is in the way of your deserving? 
  • What is the purpose of your life?
  • What meaning have you created? 
  • What are you willing to do to experience the good you deserve? 
    • Are you willing to forgive?
    • Are you willing to do affirmations?
Support Yourself: Reach out to friends and allow others to help you. Be strong by asking others for help. Join some meet up groups and start networking. 

Be Loving Toward Negatives: You created every negative situation in your life to fulfill a need. You can choose again and you can choose a different approach. This allows you to move into a new positive with ease. Punishing yourself keeps you tied and doesn't allow for anything new or better to come into your life. Release with love. Allow the new to come in. Our thoughts and words are very powerful. You are never wrong no matter what. Don't be angry at yourself. You are always doing the best you can until you know better. So, cut yourself a break.

Humor: Use laughter to heal. If a negative event occurs, use humor and laughter to heal. There is always something comical in every situation. 

Take Care of Your Body: Your body is your temple. Love your body and take care of it. Watch what you put into your body. Learn about nutrition as this is an act of loving ourselves. Notice what gives you good energy.
