“Love Yourself Enough”

I don’t like to be redundant in my writing/messages, but this statement feels as though it’s JUMPING out at me–almost like a mantra.  “Love yourself enough to heal.”  It’s included on the “Forgive Yourself” card in the Wisdom for Healing–50 Lessons in Personal Empowerment deck by Caroline Myss.  But truly…”love yourself enough to heal” can be applied to so many areas of our lives.

Love yourself enough to recognize and confront addictive behaviors.  Love yourself enough to choose to step away from a disempowering relationship.  Love yourself enough to stand in the mirror and see the beauty in you.  Love yourself enough to be still and hear the voice of Spirit.  Love yourself enough to take care of your body, eat healthy and maintain physical well-being.  Love yourself enough to feed your spirit daily.  Love yourself enough to use your mental gifts to empower yourself and others.  Love yourself enough to release what no longer supports your inner growth and contentment.  Love yourself enough…..

And couldn’t we just stop the whole sentence right there?  Love yourself enough.  There really isn’t always a call to add an “ending”–a directive.  So often we (I certainly) wish for the DO to accompany the BE.  Love yourself enough.  Period.  Just be…in the space of loving yourself enough.  Is there any end to where this could take us, truly?  It becomes a “limitless” (in the words of Wayne Dyer) existence.  The possibilities for our soul, our love, our life are endless when we simply make this choice to “love yourself enough.”

So this mantra I will take with me today.  Perhaps….or indeed it is the answer to my own inner seeking of this morning.  This was my message from Spirit….and the one to which I am listening.  “Love yourself enough Jackie.”  For I know in truth it’s the voice of my own inner soul, speaking from that place where my Divine being meets THE Divine Presence.  And I’m listening, as I hear it speak directly…from the whispers of my heart…..

“Love yourself enough.”

    This may be the MOST important lesson that a human being will ever learn, Jackie! Because it seems to me that the root cause of every human dis-ease, every problem that we face, can all be tracked to a lack of love. Even if we were raised in the very crappiest of conditions (I wasn’t … just saying! :)…), we can overcome the garbage that we bring out of that through healthy doses of Self Love.

    Even forgiving another person who wrongs us could be considered an act of loving oneself 🙂

    SUCH an inspiration today – thank you for sharing your LIGHT!

    BTW, I’d like to take a snippet of a comment that you left for me, and put it up on my new Wild Woman Wisdom age – something I did years ago and want to get back to. It’ll be a short quote, and a link back to your site. xoxo Let me know if that’s OK!

    1. Absolutely, that’s ok! Wild Woman Wisdom – is that another blog? Please leave the link here also – for me and others. 🙂 Anytime you want to “borrow,” please feel free to do so. It’s one of the perks of the BlogTribe! LOL
