Dearest ones, it’s time to take your power back. Things appear to be out of your control, circumstances seem to be beyond containment and you may feel powerless, useless, and worthless. Yet, these circumstances, if used correctly, can provide for you the biggest blessing of your life.
This collective aftermath leaves you vulnerable to being triggered when that same stimuli or something similar enters your awareness
Fearful episodes, experiences in your life when you’ve felt hurt, traumatized, or powerless have shaped you into the person you are today but those episodes have also left scars. Those incidents have made you believe falsehoods and have left a residue of pain in their wake. This collective aftermath leaves you vulnerable to being triggered when that same stimuli or something similar enters your awareness. In the past, you may have chosen to be reactive to this stimulus and may have found yourself being triggered. However, rather than being reactive and allowing outside people and events to dictate your inner state, today we wish to guide you toward a gentler, kinder way of interacting in a world that is not always pleasant.
If you want to advance, you must take stock of everything that exists in this moment
First, you must anchor yourself in love. Nothing and no one can advance from a position of self-hatred. You can exact a price and you can cause yourself to feel shame but you will not further yourself. If you want to advance, you must take stock of everything that exists in this moment. Write down everything about yourself, the good, and the bad exactly as it is. Then begin to love all of it. Love and accept what is, just as it is. Don’t try to change or justify it, just accept all of it.
Uplift yourself by carrying yourself as one who is confident and self-assured
Next, put your focus on everything that you genuinely like about yourself right now. Make a new list that highlights all of your strengths, all of the positive aspects of yourself that you’d like to showcase. These are the “I love myself” attributes that don’t need to be changed. Take this list with you wherever you go and refer to it often. This list is your salvation and your accelerant. Put all of your time and energy into completely embodying the characteristics found in this list. If you admire that you’re kind, become even kinder by showing yourself kindness. If you appreciate your physical body for its strength or appearance begin emphasizing the positive aspects with clothing that will create a pleasing picture to all. Do not demean yourself by dressing as one who comes with a price. Instead, uplift yourself by carrying yourself as one who is confident and self-assured. Be consistent in your effort to present an aligned, harmonious whole self. Continuously refer to your list of strengths and show them to yourself and the world.
As the self expands with loving acceptance it grows more solid and confident giving you a more stable platform upon which to interact with life
By focusing on what’s already good you’re accomplishing two things at the same time. First, you’re activating the law of expansion which states that anything this is looked upon with favor swells or expands from the acceptance that it’s shown. Secondly, as the self expands with loving acceptance it grows more solid and confident giving you a more stable platform upon which to interact with life. This means that when something comes up that would have triggered you, you’re now able to respond from a place of solid stability instead of irrational emotion. The more that you choose to be non-reactive, to acknowledge the trigger but choose to allow it to pass without reaction, the more you will be activating the law of attraction to bring to your circumstances that have no trigger and support the stability you have developed as a result of focusing on your strengths.
Loving yourself feels good, therefore, when you begin treating yourself with loving kindness you’re going to want more
For those of you who worry that your weaknesses will gain a stronghold within your energetic field if they’re not beaten back forcefully with shame and blame, know that they’re called weaknesses for a reason. When you strengthen the optimal aspects of yourself. When you praise, congratulate, and honor yourself for your accomplishments many things will happen. First, loving yourself feels good, therefore, when you begin treating yourself with loving kindness you’re going to want more. You’re going to want to feel even better, to receive even more praise, and to find even more strengths to enhance so you’ll naturally begin demanding more from yourself. Now, because you see yourself as capable, you’ll expect yourself to act successfully, to follow through on promises and you’ll bring to yourself more successful outcomes to feel good about. There will be no need to criticize yourself for being lazy when you’re fired up about being successful and getting things done. Once you start getting even more things done, you’ll have even more reasons to view yourself as successful and so you’ll have created an upward spiral of success and positive thought.
In the place of this being of reactivity stands a proud, stable being of purpose and confidence
Gone is the downward spiral of negative thinking and actions that lead to dismal outcomes. Gone is the emotionally unstable being who was triggered by every ripple on the surface of life and gone is the weak being who sees themselves as a powerless victim, incapable of having a positive impact on their life. In the place of this being of reactivity stands a proud, stable being of purpose and confidence. The triggers that used to cause them unending pain and dissatisfaction are now seen for what they are, statements, circumstances, and situations that were and that may come again but are only things that have no power of their own. You, as a stable, powerful being choose the meaning they will be assigned. When you choose to see the good, good is all you can see and good will be all you experience.
Choose to see your strength, choose to support yourself instead of criticizing yourself and you’ll be effective in rising about the triggers
Being triggered isn’t a life sentence. You can rise above events of the past that left you traumatized but you must make a choice before serenity will be yours. Choose to see your strength, choose to support yourself instead of criticizing yourself and you’ll be effective in rising about the triggers.
