All that you are is a result of what is now behind you. Yes, you have heard and read these words many, many times before. Have you been able to discern exactly how to accept who you are?

This is an issue that many attempt to resolve within themselves. My intention is to share with you my understanding of how to reconcile what no longer is and being able to assimilate your physical energy with your Spiritual energy.

Self-Acceptance is part of the journey. It is a large part of being able to discover and then being able move forward towards fulfilling your Life’s Purpose.  If you are not able to truly accept you as you are it will indeed be a challenge to face all that is before you.

It would of course be much easier to simply stay where you are. What does this mean, stay where you are? It means exactly what the words and the energy imply. There are several choices, go backwards, stay where you are or move forward.

Staying where you are is surrendering all you desire to accomplish, to heal and giving-up on figuring out your sense of worth and ultimately fulfilling your Life’s Purpose.

So how do you accept you? How do you reconcile the gap between where you have been and where you want to go? It is simple, yet it is not always easy. It requires Soul searching, releasing excuses, releasing pain and sorrow. It requires you to reach through and beyond everything you have ever known. It requires that you not listen to ego chatter which only seeks to dis-empower you.

Self-acceptance requires you to absolute let go of everything you have come to know and accepted as truth along the way.  Surrender, total surrender is placing
all faith, trust and knowing you are Divinely supported in all ways.  It requires healing. It requires you to take action.

Responsibility for where you are and where you are not rests solely with you. If you are not able to trust that all is unfolding for you in ways beyond your knowing, to include your Soul Mate relationship, health and finances then you will have a much more difficult path to travel.

The key to self-acceptance is truly allowing you to fall into the hands of Spirit knowing you will be caught. Trust is a key ingredient to accept you are on the path for which you were intended, the path of discovering and fulfilling your Life’s Purpose.

It is about releasing fear, emotions and thoughts having anything to do with negativity or lack. It is about being responsible for success, for being a conduit of healing, a channel for the Divine to flow into, through and within in you. It is about being comfortable with being uncomfortable. It is about allowing your Divinity to radiate from within you regardless of what others may think, say or do.

Do not allow someone else’s negativity, disapproval or their self-limiting thoughts of lack dictate how you travel your path. Your path is yours, it is unique to you. You are unlike any other Human in this realm and yet you are the same. You are light. You are love. You are One with Source.

In truth you are whole, complete and perfect. In truth there is no separation from Spirit. In truth you are priceless. In truth you light reflected from Divine Source. In truth you are all these things and more than words are able to adequately express.

Tip of the Week – What Is Self-Acceptance

What is self-acceptance and how do I “get there from here”?

Self-acceptance is being content where you are. It is accepting where you are as you look to the horizon of where you want to be. Self-acceptance is acknowledging where you have been. It is acknowledging the many dings, dents, bumps, bruises, heartaches, disappointments and skinned knees along the way.

Are you willing to recognize the flaws which brought you to where you are? Are you open to accepting others for who they are rather than what you think they should be?  If your answer is anything other than yes, how then can others accept you as you are if you do not accept others or yourself?

Forgiveness is one way to accept you as you are and where you have been. Accepting who you are in this moment does not mean you are going to remain where you are, unless of course, this is your choice. Many choose to stay where they are not moving forward. Choosing not to move forward is being stuck in the past, that which is behind you. Staying where you are is choosing to remain attached to the past. Choosing to move forward requires compassion first for you and then for others. You cannot give what you do not first give to yourself.

Acceptance is not surrendering your heart’s desires. It is not giving-in or giving-up. It is about supporting you as you expand Spiritually moving beyond your comfort zone of what no longer is. It is about tolerance of yourself as you continue to detach from drama, detaching from those who would attempt to hold you in their comfort zone.

Detaching does not mean cutting people out of your life. To detach is to not engage in the drama of the “shoulda, woulda, coulda” or the “you should not have done” syndrome. This is an attempt by others to keep you in “your place” within their reach, within the boundaries of what is “expected” of you.

Yes, courage is a key ingredient to moving forward to the edge of everything you have ever known where you will find stones to step upon or be taught how to fly, soaring above the ordinary. Acceptance of the Self involves being able to release not only you from the past, it also requires you release others as they too seek their own way along the journey.

Lessons learned need not be forgotten. Forgiveness release s you and all concerned. Forgiveness does not request you remain where you are, in relationships or situations which no longer serve your highest and best good.

Nurture you as you begin to accept your true Self, that which is within. Nurture yourself, finding courage to speak your truth, to venture beyond all that has come before. Be compassionate as you look within discovering your true essence, the core of who you are accepting all that is revealed to you in light and love.
