Most of us realize that we don't love ourselves unconditionally. These days most people walk around with lowered feelings of self-esteem. I teach people to identify their self doubts and judgments and realize that they are relayed within by an "Internal Critic" unfortunately taught us by parents, teachers and others who feel that criticism and guilt build character. I teach that everyone must learn to love themselves and others by casting away negative judgments.
Loving Yourself: A Path to Spiritual Connection
It is very true that people who judge themselves harshly also judge others in the same manner, while self love radiates empathy and compassion to others. If we truly manifest unconditional love, we can survive life challenges with equanimity and a positive spirit. Some people learn to love themselves based upon the feedback they receive from others. They bask in pride when praised or when they can surround themselves with the trappings of success.
But this is conditional, not unconditional, self-love. Self acceptance based upon external achievements is ephemeral as conditions of life change. The need to chase the brass ring leaves us anxious, hollow and unsatisfied.
An important step to unconditional self-love is learning to accept and love the unlovable in yourself, being kind to yourself in situations where you usually have been harsh. A strategy to accomplish this can be called "the best friend technique. Okay so let's do this for yourself. When you are down, talk to yourself as if you were your own best friend and move from self criticism to self compassion.
If you continue to experience negative judgments toward yourself, you can also consult the articles on self-esteem in the Reading Room section of my website.
In the next article of this series we'll discuss the heart center which generates unconditional love. If you continue to be plagued by feelings of self-doubt and negative judgments which block your self-love, consider this technique. Start by generating a feeling of love in your heart for anything or anyone: your child, your pet, your friend, your flowers, a beautiful sunset, whatever, then let those warm feelings radiate from your heart throughout your body, consciously enveloping yourself in that feeling of unconditional love.
Each time you are able to do that you will be banishing the Stress Monster from your life. When we walk around with loving feelings the Stress Monster will shriek and run away back into his gloom and doom. As a final thought, consider these wise words: "A loving person lives in a loving world. A hostile person lives in a hostile world. Everyone you meet is your mirror. Betty W. To maintain a high enough frequency to connect with your personal source of spiritual Guidance, you need to learn to love yourself rather than keep abandoning yourself.
Loving yourself by taking responsibility for yourself in all these areas is what raises your frequency high enough to consistently access your spiritual Guidance.
When you practice Inner Bonding throughout the day, you naturally start to love yourself in all these areas. People who build a consistent Inner Bonding practice into their lives find themselves gradually being able to have two-way communication with their spiritual Guidance.
True Love Means Loving Yourself
I had tried many things to connect with my Guidance before Spirit brought us Inner Bonding, but it's only since I started to practice Inner Bonding thirty-two years ago that I've been able to reliably connect with my Guidance. Through my consistent practice, I've not only learned to connect with my Guidance, I can also connect with others' Guidance when I work with them. I no longer have to rely only on my mind and my training to be of help to people. I now have my Guidance and their Guidance flowing information to me in the form of words, pictures and feelings to help me help others.
