"Appreciation and self love are the most important tools that you could ever nurture. Appreciation of others and the appreciation of yourself is the closest vibrational match to your Source energy that we've ever witnessed anywhere in the Universe."
- Abraham Hicks
The above quote is pure revolutionary, evolutionary gold.
First, it is the road map from your Intentions to your Manifestations. And second, it is a revelation that YOU are free and in complete control of your own destiny.
That's pretty big. So let's break it down...
When you are truly feeling self love and appreciation for yourself and others, everything is possible.
Self love isn't vain or braggadocios. Self love is about authentically loving who you are – all of you – flaws, mistakes, regrets, everything. It is an act of the deepest compassion. It is forgiveness; it is love without comparison; it is embracing and accepting yourself as whole - exactly how you are right now.
Mastering self love is a journey. A choice you make, everyday, to be loving to yourself AND to be the person you want to be. It's not a coat you can wear. Sometimes it requires radical shifts in consciousness.
What I know for sure is that self love comes from doing things that you are proud of, constantly choosing to move towards who you've always wanted to be.
The good news is that you don't have to accomplish a big goal or cross some sort of finish line to have self-love. You just have to be working towards it – taking steps every day that honor you and the life you want to have.
Your commitment to you translates into self love. The vibration is awakened.
The appreciation part is really easy. What are you grateful for? Say it. Feel it. Acknowledge those people or things in your life that fill you with happiness and pleasure. Make a commitment to express that kind of gratitude to others AND to yourself daily.
Bringing these two energies (self love and appreciation) into consistent rotation will propel you into a manifesting wizard.
It will help you understand that there is peace, love, and fulfillment in the simplest of things and that the very foundations of your existence can be created and sustained by YOU.
Shine the light of love and respect on yourself and others. Notice the difference. Commit again. Everyday. And watch what happens.
We're rooting for you!
