✨🎄Reading & Pondering Today 12/3🎄✨

“Our mind may tell us that bad is bad, good is good, and that we can never really be all that we dream of being, but if our shadow could talk, it would tell us otherwise.

It would tell us that our brightest light can shine only when we’ve accepted our darkness. It would reassure us that there is wisdom in every wound. It would show us that life is a magical journey of making peace with both our humanity and divinity. Our shadow would tell us that we deserve better, that we matter, that we are more than we ever dreamed possible, and that there’s light at the end of the tunnel.

As we embrace our shadow, we find out that we are living a divine plan, a plan so important, so vital for our own evolution as well as for the evolution of humankind. Like the lotus flower that is born out of mud, we must honor the darkest parts of ourselves and the most painful of our life’s experiences, because they are what allow us to birth our most beautiful self. We need the messy, muddy past, the muck of our human life—the combination of every hurt, wound, loss, and unfulfilled desire blended with every joy, success, and blessing to give us the wisdom, the perspective, and the drive to step into the most magnificent expression of ourselves. This is the gift of the shadow.”

☀️Reading & Pondering Today 11/20☀️

“The joy of Being, which is the only true happiness, cannot come to you through any form, possession, achievement, person, or event—through anything that happens.

That joy cannot come to you—ever. It emanates from the formless dimension within you, from consciousness itself and thus is one with who you are.”

Excerpt From
A New Earth
Eckhart Tolle

 

May you find the joy within you, and share it with all you come in contact with today!

Blessings!

✨Reading & Pondering Today 11/11

“To experience emotional freedom, we must accept, surrender, and let go of our wounds. We must be willing to take responsibility for what we’re holding on to, which is usually a hurt or pain from the past that leaves us feeling victimized.

The Code of Emotional Freedom calls on us to let go of “I’m right,” “You’re wrong,” “I’m good,” and “You’re bad” so that we can stand fully in our power. It calls on us to take responsibility for our lives and then, with grace and ease, to let go of our excuses, reasons, justifications, and righteousness.

Now, that doesn’t mean we’re suddenly deaf, dumb, and blind to the impact that others have had on us. Becoming accountable doesn’t mean letting the other person off the hook. As my friend Marianne Williamson always says, the universe will deal with them.

But taking responsibility does guarantee that we will reclaim the power we have given away and regain our freedom to glide through the universe unobstructed by old beliefs or other people.
Holding back from taking full responsibility is common to all of us. Our wounded human ego wants to pin the blame on someone else—anyone else!

“Emotional freedom is the doorway to our dreams and the goal of the warrior within. This warrior woman is the part of us standing for our greatness, our magnificence, and our joy.

She is filled with the courage, confidence, and inner strength to leave the past behind. She knows that there is no way to express herself fully when she is still carrying burdens that need to be released. She won’t settle for a reality that is dragged down by unfinished business.

She embraces the present. Her strength returns even after the worst defeat because she has grown to trust herself. She is intensely honest with herself. Unwilling to have negativity or old fears stop her, she is strong, determined, and single-focused.

Like an alchemist, she creates an elixir out of wisdom and courage to resolve any remnants of emotional toxicity. The warrior woman has found freedom.

Emotional freedom means embracing responsibility and accountability. To allow ourselves to move through our experiences instead of staying stuck in them, we look for how we participated in the circumstances, experiences, and conditions of our lives.

As we embrace responsibility, we are given the gift of clear sight and are able to see how much we have grown and evolved from the experiences we have lived through.”

✨Reading & Pondering Today 11/8

“I break free of the thought of limits today.

Today I break free of a belief in limits, as there are no limits in the Mind of God. There is no order of difficulty in miracles. The universe is a field of quantum possibility, wherein nothing limits what love can do.

I do not bow before the ego’s dictates of scarcity and lack. Rather, I embrace the infinite abundance of God’s universe. I face the world today knowing that anything can happen, for there is no appearance of lack or fear that can prevail upon the will of God.

God is love, and fear is illusion. Knowing this, I am a natural worker of miracles and a deliverer of peace.

May I be freed of thoughts of worldly limits today, remembering that the children of God are bound and not free. May God’s spirit deliver me beyond the narrow confines of fear-based thinking.

May I be delivered to the infinite possibilities of love. Break me free, dear God, of the ego’s claims of what is possible, what is to be expected, and what is permitted by its harsh assessments of who I am. Amen.”

✨Reading & Pondering Today 11/3✨

“I will not punish myself for the mistakes of my past.

The dark nights of my soul have taught me many things: about where I got it wrong and where I got it right in life; about who I’ve been and who I choose to be now. I take responsibility for my mistakes, I atone for my errors, I do what I can to make things right, and I allow forgiveness and mercy to wash me clean.

It neither serves me, nor anyone else, for me to beat up on myself continually. Having burned through appropriate remorse, I wish to move ahead and grow from my mistakes. I will not stay stuck in the mire of self-hatred.

Although I have made mistakes in my past I am not bound by them in the present—for my atonement is sincere. God Himself would not have me punish whom He Himself has forgiven.

Dear God,

Please help me accept Your mercy and forgiveness.
May I be as kind to myself
As You are to me.
May I begin again
With a heart that’s clean of the guilt
I would lay upon myself.

Amen.”

“Trust that there is a perfect plan for the unfolding of your highest good, which your rational mind cannot formulate.

God’s plan works, and yours doesn’t. You cannot know how your part fits best into a larger plan for the healing of the world, but God does.

Your job is merely to open your mind and open your heart so that a higher consciousness can then flow through you.”

✨Reading & Pondering Today. 10-4✨

“When we find ourselves obsessed with aspects of other people’s shadows, it is only because they have touched one of our own. We are used to thinking that we cannot see ourselves unless we are looking in a mirror—but this is true only on one level.

The fact is we can see ourselves in living color by taking note of what we observe in other people. We are designed to project onto others the qualities we can’t see in ourselves.

It’s not a bad thing. We all do it all the time. Projection is an involuntary defense mechanism of the ego; instead of acknowledging the qualities in us that we dislike, we project them onto someone else.”
