I find it deeply comforting that our true self, our Higher Holy Spirit Self, the Mighty I AM Presence of us is completely unhurt-able. I aspire to live in a way that I AM unbotherable, unhurt-able and free. I can feel it coming.
I aspire to be unhurt-able not because I’ve put up some kind of wall or shield to protect me, but because I don’t ever take anything personally. Ponder this: so much of what deeply hurts and offends us is what people say, or don’t say. Our interpretations of other people’s choices are often where the constant stream of hurt comes from. (I’m not talking about the kind of hurt that comes from being hurt or attacked.)
We’re one with each other, all completely united and one, can we actually hurt each other, or are we making it up? Are we hurting ourselves? Or are we simply having experiences and choosing to take things as an offense? These are things for us to consider. Let’s find out what’s really going on.
What I absolutely know is that the safest emotional place in this world is with my heart wide open so that I can embrace everything and keep nothing out.
It’s the hardening of the heart, the blocking and withholding of Love that causes pain, anger, upset, and hurt. It’s trying to avoid hurt that causes the pain.
Feeling hurt is a choice I don’t intend to make anymore.
I’m interested in eliminating choosing to be hurt and offended, because being upset is not a good use of my energy and I don’t enjoy it.
People frequently ask me how to be more self-loving – and not taking offense is a REALLY important step. Being loving to others IS being self-loving. Not taking things personally is being self-loving.
I love myself enough to not take offense. I don’t have time for being upset anymore. It doesn’t feel productive or helpful to me.
Since I’m the one who decides how I will perceive something, I can take everything as an opportunity to extend Love or receive Love. I choose self-compassion, and extending compassion.
To have Love give all Love to All. It’s simple. It’s not easy, but thank God it’s simple!
Doesn’t being open hearted and unhurt-able sound great?
I’m pretty sure that’s our natural state.
After all, we’re light beings.
How do you damage light?
It’s not possible.
Light is forever perfect.
I’m going for it! How about you?
I haven’t offered a Stop Playing Small Retreat in for a couple of years, so if this interests you, please join! We practice and learn Self-Love in Spiritual Community and it’s a powerful healing and life-changing experience. We can accomplish a lot in a short time when we come together focused on transformation!
My Spiritual Counseling Training Intensive is not just a professional training, it’s a deeply healing opportunity to let go of false beliefs. If you read the things people have said about how their lives change as a result, you will see that this is an opportunity for profound lasting personal healing.
If you’re willing, let’s do it together! Changing our lives and healing our minds is so much easier when we are the two or more gathered together for the same purpose. To this end, I’m offering another Spiritual Counseling Training Intensive in May and my Stop Playing Small retreat right before, at the end of this month.
We’re an expanding global spiritual community of prayerful people willing to be co-workers with God. We’re waking up together and finding freedom in our hearts. I’m so grateful for this!
