Love Who You Are!

“”You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.” —Buddha

The above quote resounds with wisdom, I opine. Accordingly, I also feel that unless we truly love and appreciate ourselves, we won’t have the capacity to love others authentically. Periodically in my healing practice, I come across clients with low self-esteem or lack of self-love. There’s an inner voice in them that says things like “I’m not capable”, “I’m overweight and unattractive”, “I’m weak, I can’t change”, “I’m not worthy.” And often harsh words and criticisms from others who are overly judgmental perpetuate this dilemma. Hence, when I came across the above meaningful song by Andy Grammer (see YouTube music video above), I felt it’s a good content to add to my blog, as it’s consistent with my intention of promoting self-empowerment.

Life’s Many Lessons

“Anything that annoys you, is teaching you patience.”

“Anyone who abandons you is teaching you how to stand up on your own two feet.”

“Anything that angers you is teaching you forgiveness and compassion.

“Anything has power over you, is teaching you how to take your power back.”

“Anything you hate is teaching you unconditional love.”

“Anything you fear, is teaching you courage to overcome your fear.”

“Anything you can’t control, is teaching you how to let go.

“Everything In Life Is Teaching You Something!”

– quotes from a social media feed that I just read today. Since those quotes seem to summarise all the things that I have learned from other sources or experienced myself over the years, I just felt like reproducing them in my blog. Intuitively, I just know that as souls, we never stop learning or evolving. Earth, as revealed by many spiritual sources, is considered a tough school, not for the faint hearted. The fact that we have incarnated implies that all of us have what it takes to master the lessons of life. I opine that if we don’t give up on ourselves, life will not give up on us.

Lift Me Up

Lift me up
Hold me down
Keep me close
Safe and sound


Burning in a hopeless dream
Hold me when you go to sleep
Keep me in the warmth of your love
When you depart, keep me safe
Safe and sound

– Part of lyrics from a touching song, Lift Me Up (from the movie Wakanda Forever) , sung beautifully by Rihanna. (Watch the 1st video above. The second video, a rendition in French is equally beautiful.) I do believe good music composition, meaningful lyrics and powerful vocals can uplift our mood, hence my inclusion of these videos as my latest blogpost. Living in a world that’s not perfect, listening to such an inspirational song can be a balm for our soul, I opine.

Responding In Love

When we look at the chaos in the world and ask ourselves ‘How can I respond to this through the lens of LOVE?’, everything changes ! And when each of us does this, it is a ripple effect. It’s like bubbles meeting each other in a glass. Each person becomes the bubble of love. It’s with another person until the whole top of the glass is full of bubbles .. until everyone is full of love. And the more we meet things with love , the less chaos and anger there is, because we are choosing a different frequency. Chaos is there to cause a specific reaction but we must know that we ALWAYS have a choice. The knee-jerk reaction has been conditioned within us but it’s time for us to be mindful… instead of responding in the knee-jerk reaction and this requires noticing our emotions in every moment… Is this how I want to feel about the thing? … How else can I feel about this? It is not easy … but IS possible with daily practice… overcoming darkness of depression through mindfulness… This is the message for the Collective.”

– advice on how to deal with chaotic times as channeled during an SCHH (hypnotherapy session) performed recently by practitioner Karen Stamper.

[ Note : #1. The above is yet another useful advice for humanity and is also incredibly similar to the numerous messages in my previous blogposts. #2. The following are related words of wisdom from a gifted channeler of higher consciousness, Darryl Anka extracted from an interview I stumbled upon one day after the above was posted.]

“Instead of thinking this thing manifested in my life, something must be going wrong. I’m doing something wrong. I shouldn’t be experiencing this . I should be beyond this. If it’s happening, it’s happening for a reason. It’s there maybe even to test yourself to see (if) you are going to react the same old way and give it the same old negative definition that you used to or are you going to respond differently to the situation because.. it’s not about the outside world changing that proves you have changed. It’s about you responding differently to what’s going on, even if it still looks the same. That’s what proves you have changed. Because if you really haven’t changed and you really respond the same old way or react the same old way , well why should the outside world change? … So, reacting differently.. is what actually change is all about and then ultimately will cause the outside to change because it’s just a mirror, it’s just a reflection and it’s like saying ‘I’m looking in the mirror and I’m watching my face frown but I insist that it should smile!’ It’s NOT going to smile until you do.’

Return To Innocence

“Love
Devotion
Feeling
Emotion

Don’t be afraid to be weak
Don’t be too proud to be strong
Just look into your heart my friend
That will be the return to yourself
The return to innocence.

And if you want, then start to laugh
If you must, then start to cry
Be yourself, don’t hide…
Return to innocence.”

– Excerpt of lyrics from the 1990’s No.1 chart topper by the group Enigma.

Re-listening to the above hit song released in the 90’s today, reminded me how hauntingly beautiful the lyrics are. I opine the words still apply to humanity now. As technology has become more advanced and society , more complex , the need to return to a simpler way of living and the authenticity of self can’t be overemphasised. Being more advanced in technology doesn’t equate to being wiser and balanced. Thus mental health problems and depression cases are increasing. When rock bottom is hit, the only salvation is to look within for the spark of love. And Love is the innocence of the soul. Life doesn’t have to be a struggle but humans have made it so.

Taking Charge!

“I am going to make my own decisions in life. .. I am NOT going to depend on anybody else. The minute you depend on somebody else, you lose something. You lose the right to decide for yourself.”

– successful country music singer, Shania Twain.

Shania’s quote echoes the theme of this Astrological Age – the Age of Aquarius, which is about Awakening and Self-Empowerment.

Never Give Up!

The above is a lyric video of a brand new single called “I’m In” by the legendary band a-ha , whose 80’s mega hit “Take On Me” took the world by storm. I opine this is one effort whereby all the the conditions of a perfect song are met… beautiful voice, meaningful and inspiring lyrics, heart touching music with the bonus of backing by a beautiful orchestra. The reason for my sharing is because I feel this song can uplift one’s mood especially during these rocky times. A sample of the lyrics are listed below , which are self explanatory..

Breathe In . Just Breathe. There Are Times..Good Times After These….. Never Give Up. Never You Stop. Don’t Let The Forces That Pull Us Apart Think They Can Win. Just Believe.”

Years ago, Archangel Michael told me that the lead singer’s (Morten Harket) main angelic guide is Archangel Gabriel, who often helps humans with self-expression and dissemination of spiritual messages. The aforementioned lyrics suggest that we breathe. In my healing work, breath work is essential as many of my clients have short breaths and it’s worse if they have trapped emotions such as anxiety. Some of them have even convinced themselves that they are victims of life, which is far from the truth. There may be lessons for us in the form of difficulties or challenges but it’s critical we change our limited belief system. We hold the key to unlocking a better future… and it is Belief.

And The Solution Is LOVE!

“The most important lesson is to Love. There’s no other lesson than to love. Love is a gift. Love is from Source. Source is in everyone and everyone is from Source. Therefore everyone should be loved... therefore actions which don’t express love are ones that should be changed. Whether it is driving and being angry with a circumstance, whether it’s being sad at someone’s circumstance of making poor choices, whether it’s sad at failing to make an optimal choice, these should all be converted to LOVE.”

“Everything is about love. Change brings opportunity to love more. Loss is a form of change. Love can survive change and there will be changes. Loss is any change of expectation. It can be personal. It can be emotional. It can be physical. But the right reaction is to understand that Love survives everything. This is a lesson to be learned.”

– excerpt of divine messages channeled during a recent past life regression (hypnotherapy) conducted by Laron G.S. which also seem to apply to humanity at large during these times of great changes.

It’s Time To Let Go! (TOP GUN Movie Quote)

A touching scene from the movie Maverick : Top Gun

The above is a snapshot of the hit movie Maverick : Top Gun featuring Tom Cruise and Val Kilmer. That scene touched many moviegoers and even men who seldom cry, had tears in their eyes. Basically in that scene, Val Kilmer’s character was advising Tom Cruise’s character to let go of the painful past and move on in life. I can certainly relate to it because that’s also the spiritual message I have been getting from my own angelic communication for my clients. (I work as an energy healer i.e. reiki practitioner). Majority of my clients suffer from holding on to passive thoughts and harmful emotions (guilt, regret,anger,grief,fear,dismay,etc) . So, to truly heal oneself, I opine that we really need to LET GO.

The practice of letting go is even more important during these times of volatility. What is transpiring now on the planet is what I have been blogging in the past decade. The dreaded 2012 year didn’t see the demise of the human race as predicted by many prior to it. Instead it signified the beginning of a new time cycle that would result in huge CHANGES. Holding on to things that no longer serve us would certainly be dreadful. As the actress Dolly Parton has said “If you want the rainbow, you gotta put up with the rain.” So, to survive and thrive, we need to lighten up by dropping the heavy mental and emotional baggage. And this is what ancient Mayans predicted about 2012… the end of an old cycle and the beginning of a new one that would bring many opportunities for the collective to shift their consciousness (thoughts, feelings, beliefs, etc) to something that’s better than before.

Manifesting Goals!

“Alignment trumps everything. Stay off the subject that disturbs your alignment, and everything that you care about will come into alignment.”

“You can’t watch out for bad things and allow good things at the same time. It is vibrationally not possible.”

“You can get to where you want to be from wherever you are—but you must stop spending so much time noticing and talking about what you do not like about where you are.”

– quotes by the author of Law of Attraction books and motivational speaker, Esther Hicks.

In this Information Age, there’s so much of news coming from the media (mainstream or social) . Hence, I believe it’s very easy for us to get distracted from our goals in life. As such , the above quotes which emphasise the importance of what we put our focus on, is a timely reminder , if we wish to manifest a better future for ourselves.
