In my early thirties my entire life fell apart. I had done everything I was supposed to do – and suddenly nothing felt right. I quit my stable engineering career and became psychic in the window at a local bookstore. My marriage fell apart. I moved from the home I had poured all my love into, and left my two dogs behind with my former husband so they could stay in the home and yard they were accustomed to.
I lost all but one friend.
I felt alone, frightened, guilty, and worthless. Even though I was channeling angels for people all day, for months, I cried every night. I didn’t know how to put my life back together.
In this space I started to attract relationships to beat myself up as thoroughly as I was doing on my own. I dated a sociopath that took my money, a man who cheated with everything that moved the minute I was out of sight, and an angry abused man who yelled at me every day.
Clearly something had to change. My training in self-love began in earnest.
Over the course of the next decade I learned to value not only what I was doing, what I accomplished, and who I helped, but more importantly, who I really was.
After years of learning what I had done wrong, I finally figured out what I was doing right. As I left behind the identification with outer criteria and started to embrace the inner light, my life changed magically. I found my tribe, wrote books, was interviewed on international radio shows, spoke at conferences featuring famous authors, and connected with thousands of wonderful, loving people all over the world… including you!
If you’ve ever had times in your life where you felt like you weren’t living your real life, or at least not the life you wanted to live, then you know how I felt. If you’ve ever had days, weeks, or even months when you didn’t feel so wonderful about yourself and wondered if anyone else ever would… we’ve shared that experience too.
If you’ve ever looked in the mirror – either the one on the wall or the mirror of your life situations – and judged yourself – you, like me, know what its like to feel less than Divine.
You may still feel bound by the chains of pre-conditioned guilt, controlled by the “disease to please,” ashamed of still having body-image issues… and the list goes on. We’ve all been there.
Even now, even after years of spiritual growth, there may still be times in your life when you secretly feel that there is so much more that you’d like to experience (or express) but you’re not sure how to get there.
When you start to see yourself as the angels do, you are able to access the power that creates universes!
When you stop criticizing yourself and feeling guilty for wanting what you want, you get out of God’s way and allow miracles to flow easily into your life. Far from being selfish, true Self Love enables you to be the contribution the Divine intended you to be.
Most of us can feel “pretty good” about ourselves and have a pretty good life.
However, it was only when I finally embraced self-love that I began to live the amazing, magical life I have now – one in which miracles, synchronicity, meaning and joy – are an every day occurrence.
We all grow at our own pace. For years I wasn’t ready to embrace this type of self love. Holding on to a smaller view of myself felt safe.
However, if you are ready to embrace a radically different definition of self love – one that has nothing to do with being better than anyone else, one that has nothing to do with being selfish, and one that requires a totally different dimension of understanding while still honoring your human desires – then you will love this series!
