I’m going to be completely honest with you.
It's not going to be easy.
It is very simple, but it is not going to be easy.
There will be some dark moments for you on this journey.
There will be some dark moments, where you may want to quit.
There will be some moments, where you may be angry at me.
You may want to throw this across the room.
(If you're reading this on a Kindle or your phone, I would suggest not throwing it across the room.)
However, if you will do the hard work and you will look within,
if you will trust the process, I guarantee you will transform.
I guarantee that you will start to hear the Divine and you will start to love yourself.
You will start to go within and that your life will change.
Those around you will see the change and they will start to change, too. Some of those changes may be for the good, some of those changes may not, but either way, change will happen. It will always be for your highest good, even when it feels like it's ripping your heart out.
Where Do We Start our Transformation?
So, we're going to start at the very beginning.
We're going to start with one of the hardest things to do and then we're going to work our way through all the difficult emotions.
We're going to work our way backwards through the pain.
It's a process. It’s a painful process.
It's something that you're going to need to do every moment of every day of your life.
~You will need to stay ultra vigilant.
~You will need to pay attention.
~You will need to stay in the process at all times, because this is something that you have to want.
This is something that you have to work for.
This is something in your life that you are really going to have to want with all of your being.
When you are in this Awakening, it is all you want.
It is what you desire.
You are seeking.
You are wanting.
You are desiring.
You are lost and you need to find the way.
The Simple Spirituality of Self is how you find those answers. The Simple Spirituality of Self is how you will get through this Awakening and come out the other side transformed. You can do this! I believe in you 100%!
So What is the Answer?
So, we're going to start this with me giving you the answer.
Everyone's looking for the answers.
I'm not going to make you wait till the end of the book for the answer.
I'm going to give you the answer right here right now!
I'm going to give you the answer, the whole thing, right now.
This is the very first thing we are going to dig into and it is the key that will help you unlock every one of the emotions that will follow.
Do this everyday and you will be able to face every emotion, climb down every emotional vine, dig out every traumatic root and forgive those painful episodes in your life.
This is where it all starts and ends.
This is the answer to all issues, the solution to all problems, the tool for all repairs.
This is important!
How do I Start to Love Myself?
Everyday you will spend 3 minutes showering yourself with love and praise.
You will love yourself beyond any love that anyone has ever given you.
You will love yourself like the motherly love that you so longed for.
You will put your arms around yourself and hug yourself.
You will tell yourself how wonderful you are, how great you are, how smart you are.
You will tell yourself how beautiful you are.
You will tell yourself all of the wonderful things that you want your friends to tell you.
You will tell yourself all of the wonderful things that you want your family to tell you.
You will tell yourself all of the wonderful things that you want your husband to tell you.
You will tell yourself all of the wonderful things that you want your boyfriend to tell you.
You will tell yourself all of the wonderful things that you want your girlfriend to tell you.
You will love yourself, beyond everything, no matter what you look like.
You will love yourself, beyond everything, no matter what you've done.
You will love yourself, beyond everything, no matter who you are.
You will love yourself, beyond everything, no matter what life you live.
That is what you will do AND you will not contradict it.
What if I Keep Having Negative Thoughts?
If you find your mind wandering to negative thoughts, then you put them right back on the positive loving, wonderful thoughts. I don't care whether you believe that ‘positive thinking’ stuff or not.
You're going to keep saying it.
You're going to keep correcting it.
You're going to keep going right back into how much you love yourself.
You're going to keep going right back into how wonderful you are.
You're going to keep going right back into how beautiful you are.
Why Should I Say Nice Things to Myself?
So, why are we saying all of this wonderful stuff?
We are saying all of this beautiful stuff, all of this wonderful, kind loving stuff because another part of you knows that it is true.
Why are we doing that?
Why are we saying all this beautiful, loving stuff, if we are not believing it? Why does part of you not believe it?
Part of you has been conditioned by a life of pain. You’ve been lied to by the world, trained to think that you're not good enough.
If you believe that you are a Divine being (which if you are here, reading this book, then you know that you are Divine) then a part of you knows that all of these wonderful things that you are saying about yourself are true.
That Divine part of yourself knows how wonderful you are; that Divine part of you knows that all of those things are true.
So, when you say these wonderful things to yourself over and over and over again, it believes you. That Divinity within you knows they are true, and so by saying them to yourself over and over again, you're cracking open the shell.
You're starting the reprogramming process on the other parts of you that are not believing it.
You’re starting the reprogramming process on the other parts of you that have been programmed in the negative, that have been trapped in the darkness, that have been conditioned to hold you back, that have you stuck in The Matrix, as they say.
This is where the transformation begins, no matter where you are on your spiritual journey.
3 minutes a day!
This will begin the transformation.
You will devote 3 minutes a day to loving yourself unconditionally.
I know you can do it!
This is how we start! This is the key to everything!
This is the key to the entire book--literally-- if you can Master this you can stop reading right now. Loving yourself unconditionally is the key to connecting with the Divinity within you.
When you can love yourself unconditionally, you can connect to that Divinity. You will hear that voice clearly. You will be able to shift yourself, to transform from the inside out.
‘Be the change you wish to see in the world’
Those are not just words, they are literally the point. When we can change ourselves, we can shift the world.
