2023 is a year of new beginnings

Jul 28, 2023 | Wise words

2023 is a year of new beginnings-and especially in the area of self-love.

Below are some ideas to ponder:

  • Balancing of your giving and receiving of anything. We are so automatic in our responses so just stop a moment and think: Is this in balance before you act or speak?
  • Forgiveness of self and others. Forgiveness is the key to all healing. Physically writing letters to those we have hurt and those who have hurt us in our pursuit of life, is a method I have used with no expectation of a response. The forgiveness of self is the hardest part of all. For very deep hurts, feeling the other person’s heart and the heaviness it carries goes a long way toward letting go of the pain you carry — in other words, feeling what it feels like to carry around intense guilt for sometimes years.
  • Speaking your truth (meaning who you really are) and having no expectation of it being received or not. Speaking it with kindness but clarity so that it can be received — this is authenticity. It is none of your business what others think of you.
  • Respecting authenticity of others no matter where they are on the journey. Life is not always easy and cozy — just look at the world situation. Reconcile life. Go higher and see the bigger picture life is showing you. Keeping your vibration up and sharing your light with others authentically and accepting our collective faulty steps toward wholeness, is your job. All is about self-love and knowing you are worth it.

I send light to my journey and yours whether it be a climb to the top of the mountain or baby steps up the hill. Be love to yourself and others and you will surely receive love in return — this is universal law.
