The world needs Love. It is crying out for it among the vulnerable, the abused, victims of oppression, the lonely, those in despair, those who cannot speak for themselves. It is not just humans but every species that shares the Earth with us and Mother Earth herself.Sometimes, it is overwhelming when we think about it. We can feel helpless in the face of it all.
What I have come to terms with is there is only so much we can do but we do need to play our part and that starts with changing ourselves.
Love is a force that connects us all. Every species on Earth is interconnected. We need to find our way back to self-love which will in turn have a huge influence on the world around us.
Every small step we take in loving ourselves helps to raise our vibration and in turn raise the collective consciousness.We will therefore be in a stronger position to help the most vulnerable. We need to step up for ourselves so that we can be there for those who need Love the most.
It took me a long time to find the courage to love myself fully and embrace and accept aspects of my shadow side, that part we hide from the world and even from ourselves. Doing so, has helped me to become more whole and more fully present with my real self. One of these was a tendency to hide my authentic voice.I shut it down due to the reactions of others. My brand of truth did not sit well with people.However,I now see that the side of ourselves we try to hide is actually a hidden treasure and often our greatest strength. If we learn to accept that part of ourselves, we can become more empowered.
A big part of my awakening and subsequent spiritual journey was learning to recognise patterns of behaviour that were harmful to me.I realised that I had looked outside myself for answers and approval. I now realise we are all enough and have the answers within us.
Many times,I made choices that did not honour myself, that were unhealthy for me, that were detrimental to my self-esteem. I have learnt that a lot of this came from deep programming from societal and cultural expectations. This led to self-sabotaging my progress in life.We all do it to a certain extent but we are now being pushed to let go of these unhealthy patterns so we can raise our vibrations and live life from a higher perspective.When we do this, we can live happier, more fulfilled lives.
