When you accept yourself unconditionally, faults and all, it makes it so much easier to start working on these things within yourself. It inspires you to start digging through all of this garbage that we carry.
Accepting yourself unconditionally makes you not want to carry it around anymore, because you start to say nice things to yourself; things like ‘wow I am so amazing! Why am I carrying all this junk with me?’
It's like you're a hoarder, living in a house for years and years and years.
You're putting stuff in rooms and putting stuff in rooms.
You're living with blinders on.
You walk in the front door and you put all your stuff down.
You sit on the couch and you stare at the television.
Then you get dressed and you go to work.
Then you come home and you put stuff up in the corners.
You have your blinders on and you sit and your stare at television.
You go back to work.
You come home and you put down your stuff and you sit and you stare at the tv.
And so on and so on and so on…
One day you come home and you take off your blinders and you say:
‘Holy guacamole, Why is there so much stuff in here? Wow! My house is beautiful! Why do I have so much stuff in here? Let’s start cleaning this out!’
You are that beautiful house.
As soon as you accept that you ARE that beautiful house, you will start cleaning out all of your rooms and cleaning out all of your closets.
It will be a joyful process, even though it will be painful, because you will have to dig deep.
It will be dirty.
Sometimes you won't want to throw away the junk that you've been collecting.
Sometimes you'll say ’But this is good stuff. This is pain that I've been carrying since I was 5 years old and it's been helping me, too.’
It's been helping you, but it's time to let it go.
It's time to get rid of it. It's time to throw it away.
Why Should I accept myself?
So what's the point of all this? What do we do with all of this knowledge?
We know that we're mean to ourselves.
We know that we're not always kind.
We know that we carry around all this junk. So what? Big deal, right?
Clearing out this junk; dealing with all of this garbage; clearing away the muck and the tar and the yucky stuff that coats our soul, that damages our psyche; that makes us just feel like garbage; clearing all this stuff out will absolutely transform your life.
It will change you down to your core.
It will connect you to your soul.
It will introduce you to your true self.
It will allow you to hear the voice of your Divinity.
It will help you to hear God.
This is truth. This I promise you.
You will never be the same, once you connect to that Divine Spirit within you.
How will accepting myself change my life?
The Spirituality of Self, God, dwells within everyone of you.
Every one of us houses a Divine piece of God, of the Light, of spirit, of Divinity, of whatever you want to call that higher power.
There is a piece of it inside of each one of us.
We are a Divine being, housed in a mortal vessel.
That Divine being is always, always screaming for your attention.
It is always trying to get us to behave in such a way that we embody unconditional love towards ourselves first, and then towards others.
It starts from within and then it spreads outwards.
Why does Divine act this way?
Some people call it our conscience.
Some people call it morals.
It's like Jiminy Cricket on our shoulder.
It has had many names throughout the centuries.
This is the Divinity that dwells within each of us.
Each and every person that is born on this Earth is a Divine Being in a mortal vessel.
Every killer, every leader, every abuser, every celebrity, every perpetrator, every holy person, every villain, every single person is a Divine Being, born into a mortal vessel.
They were twisted and by the life that they led… for some it was a life of pain and abuse that led them down a dark path. For others, that life led them towards the light.
