It is something we all experience, our own perception or interpretation of a thought, feeling, or an event that has taken place in our lives.
At first glance you acknowledge it’s existence, you begin to analyze it’s importance, all leading to some sort of understanding within the mind, about how you may or may not be affected by it’s influence or outcome.
This process may take hours, days, weeks or even longer to draw a satisfactory conclusion.
Interpreting your inner reality
The pains of heartache, heartbreak, disappointments and any other host of emotions swim through your thoughts.
Feelings of sadness, despair or even loneliness, swirl in and out of your thinking, the mind bounces in and out of tumultuous times and experiences, all leading you to come face to face with the same situation, maybe with a different face once again.
How many times have you re-visited the same situation, the same circumstance, the same emotions only to find your Self asking the question…
When you come toe to toe with a repeating occurrence, you are being blessed with a gift. A gift to look deeper within your Self. A gift to look in the mirror and ask the question, “what am I to see, that I am not yet willing to see or face?”
The answer may surprise you, it may be something so foreign to you that it takes you some time to even begin to see it. Why? Because what you are seeing, maybe even for the first time, is YOU!
There is nothing that happens To you, only For You.
When you can become the observer and be witness to the entire scenario from this perspective, you come into an awareness that you may never knew you had.
What is this awareness?
It is your inner knowing where your Truths become known to you.
It is here, within the realm of possibilities that you make the discovery that it has been and always will be about You! We are each birthed here within this world to make the discovery of love. We’re not talking about romantic love, family love or friendship love… we are talking about Self Love.
We’re talking about how you perceive your Self to be loved and to reciprocate love, not only to others, but to your Self as well.
Perception and misperception
The journey to loving one’s self unconditionally, can bring to the surface the many hidden aspects of our unlovable self. There is a perception that these aspects are referred to as your Shadow Self, where all your deep, dark and hidden parts of your whole, lay hidden.
This misperception of the shadow self, is why your perceptions are often times blocking you from embracing your wholeness.
Misperceptions are deemed as seeing something from an old, worn out pair of lenses. Your vision becomes distorted, clouded or without clarity, which is why you continue to come face to face with viewing and reviewing the same emotions, feelings, thoughts and actions.
Now is the time to begin your journey inward to promote healing from within.
Take off the rose colored glasses.
Surrender the perceptions of the mind and tap into the Truth within the heart. It is from this place of Self Love and Acceptance that you begin your healing journey home to Self.
With deep love and adoration.
