Do You Love Yourself?
Do you ever wonder whether you love yourself deeply and truly?
Do you love every bit of yourself?
Are there any parts of yourself that you hate?
Have you ever wondered whether you could love even those parts that you hate?
What do you love about yourself?
What do you hate about yourself?
Last year, I did a lot of inner work. I worked on every aspect of my life that I could think of: money, relationships, forgiveness, my self-identity, and so on through listening to my heart as deeply as I could.
I had some good results from all those inner work, but at the same time, I was punishing myself every time I found a negative pattern in myself. Also, I was looking at myself as a damaged goods. We probably can call it a trap of the spiritual work.
I didn’t notice what I was actually doing at the beginning, but as I was feeling exhausted and even a little depressed, I started to realize how important it is to love myself fully and truly. Then, those questions above started to pop up in my head one by one.
The Right Information at the Right Time
These are the feelings and symptoms that I was experiencing about a month ago:
a heaviness in my head
a tightness in and around my heart
a chronic pain in the shoulders, upper back, and neck
a funky digestive system
no motivation to start new creative things, and more…
I really wanted to know why I was feeling that way. So, I asked the Universe for a help and started to research.
Then, I found a bunch of videos on YouTube by a research scientist, Dr. Joe Dispenza. Boy, the Universe DOES know a perfect timing! In those videos, Dr. Joe Dispenza explains how our emotions and mind affect our body, environment, and life from a scientific standpoint (if you are interested, watch this video).
Basically, what he says is that our emotional and thought patterns create neural pathways in our brain. By thinking the same thoughts and same emotions, we strengthen those pathways.
For example, you tend to think, “I can’t afford it right now” everytime you find something you want to purchase. Then, your brain creates the neural pathway. Then, the brain keeps sending the same signal to the body and strengthen the pattern. And then, your heart starts to sending the signal through its electromagnetic field to the Universe, and you become more and more prone not to be able to buy what you want.
Plus, while that’s happening, your fight/flight system becomes more active, because those negative thoughts and emotions are not loving for you. So, you start to feel tired, unhappy, and depressed.
After I watched most of his videos and started to understand what was going on to myself biologically, I began to get my answers to those questions above.
Also, I started doing his meditations (this is the one I’ve been using), I was able to feel my body being reprogrammed on the genetic level. All those exhaustions and depression were gone.
Also, I get a message from my true self every time I meditate and start loving one more part of myself such as:
“I belong here on Earth.”
“I love my life.”
“Stop reacting. Start creating.”
Not only that, I get clear images of what has been going on and how I can change them as if I’m downloading a new blueprint to start a new life as new ME.
It’s Time to Build My New Life!
Now that I understand how our mind creates our reality, I feel so hopeful. I know there will be a long way ahead, but just by thinking that the more I become gentle on myself and love myself, the more easily I can create my heart desiring life, I feel very grateful to be existing right here right now as me.
The hopefulness helped me start drawing a new mandala, “Creating My Heaven on Earth”
I will probably have more realizations through drawing this mandala and through the process of creating the new life I want. I will write about them as they come. So, stay tuned!
