You are all love, you are all safe, you are all perfect beings

I have been doing a lot of work on self esteem, self love, selfless acts of kindness, remembering all the positive and good things and dropping all the bad things and negativity. That is not to say there was a lot of that in my life as I have always been very positive and held a belief that I can do anything I want if I put my mind to it. I guess it's the belief that you are a fantastic person and you deserve all those good things that is sometimes hard for me. 

I'm not going to go into too much personal stuff here not really because it is read by total strangers but more because I am still very much processing a lot of changes and am finding it hard to put it all into words what I am going through and discovering on this emotional, spiritual and healing journey I find myself on.

Instead I'd like to share with you a few of the things that have made the biggest impact on me recently.

First is this quote which took me a few readings to fully understand and a few more to truly embrace.

Our Deepest Fear
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.

Marianne Williamson

Second is this poem from Charles Bukowski called Reinvent your Life. I love this because I feel I have been a bit trapped in just being the same for the last few years. I am now on a mission to reinvent my life!

Third is this great motivational video that I've watched a few times now. The message is brilliant and in my opinion everyone should watch this most days if they can until you know it by heart and feel the truth of it in your heart!

Fourth this clip from Jim Carrey, I have only just discovered that this guy has so much to say that is inspiring, insightful and beautiful!


Lastly this quote:

The capacity to be alone is the capacity to love. It may look paradoxical to you, but it's not. It is an existential truth: only those people who are capable of being alone are capable of love, of sharing, of going into the deepest core of another person without possessing the other, without becoming dependent on the other, without reducing the other to a thing, and without becoming addicted to the other. They allow the other absolute freedom, because they know that if the other leaves, they will be as happy as they are now. Their happiness cannot be taken by the other, because it is not given by the other.
Hermann Hesse

There is so much more I could share with you but I'll leave it there for now.

Thanks for looking :) xxx
