To be or not to be…

  

Dear friend,

You possess the power to live freely and have happy life, and to just be and let life unfold around you. 

The beauty of life, is that we as humans have the choice, either to be happy and to just experience life at its fullest, or to be pushed around and told how to live our lives.

If you choose happiness, every obstacle in your way will be seen as a lesson and a chance to change for the better. 

However if you choose a life where others lead you, when you are faced with obstacles you will experience extreme pain and sadness.

Choose happiness and to just be. 

What I mean by ‘just be,’ is to be happy fun loving and brave enough to face the things that scare you the most head strong.

  

For example this past week I experienced and did things that I thought I would and maybe could never do, but because I did them. my out look on life changed. Such as; scuba diving, hosting an assembly and wearing a swim suit loud and proud ( but that’s a blog for another day).

To just be is to let Loose, it is the opportunity to live life at its fullest. It is said that ‘we regret the things that we don’t do.’ But if we love what we do, we have nothing to regret. To Live regret free is a decision based on what you want in the now or the now of the past. So if you are willing to escape the past and live without regrets, your life experience will be completely full.

  

Love who you are, and be who you are supposed to be, because at the end of the day all you have is yourself. Live freely, experience life to its fullest and be okay with just being.

Love

Dear friend,

I may not know you, but I know that you have the strength within yourself to love.

Love is the true acceptance of a person despite all of their flaws.

There is a saying that goes “ infatuation is loving someone because you think they are perfect, love is loving them because you know they are not.”

You may not be in a relationship or you may be in one? Never the less, true love starts with you. Love is a true self-acceptance and in order to be able to love someone else you have to truly accept and love yourself for who you are.

My Zulu teacher once told me that there ‘Love’ has four parts to it.

The first kind of love is inner love; self love acceptance for who you are and who you’re not as an individual.

The second kind of love is personal love; it’s unconditional love for an individual that you may have known for a long time and you accept them fully.

The third kind of love is the love for all people, random strangers at that, and is the love for the beauty of human life. And lastly, the fourth type of love is the love that is spiritual and non –materialistic; it is the love of nature, the living and the dead as a whole.

So in order to love on a spiritual level, you have to have self-love.

Love yourself, for who you are, because when there is nobody there for you, you will always have your self.

Forgiveness

Dear friend,

You may not know me personally, however I know that within you, you hold the power to release the stuff holding you back from internal freedom. In order to unlock this internal freedom you need the gift of forgiveness and that is what I’m sending you.

The definition of forgiveness to me, is inwardly letting go of whatever it is that is holding you back from seeing the beauty of life and inwardly accepting the situation that you are forgiving even if you disagree with it.

Forgiveness is extremely personal! You have to do it for yourself, not for anybody else’s acceptance.

I know that this might sound extremely hard and you may be thinking, “ He/she has caused me extreme pain.” The truth is most of the time the people that we trying to forgive do not even realise the pain that they have caused, and even if they do, it doesn’t matter, because forgiveness starts from within us; it is the process of accepting what has happened and finding ways throughout our daily lives that causes us to understand and let go of the hurt has been caused.

Being able to forgive doesn’t mean that you have to agree with what the person has done to you, quite frankly you don’t have to look that person in the eye ever again. However forgiveness is the ability to realise that the situation may have caused you extreme pain and shock, but your willingness to accept the person’s actions and your involvement in the situation and have the ability to move on with you life, is true forgiveness.

In order to set yourself free you have to be willing to let go of whatever it is that is holding you back. There is a saying that goes, “forgive and forget”. I disagree with that saying, it should be, “forgive and don’t forget.” I think it should be this way not because you are holding on to what hurt you, but because you are accepting what has happened and are learning from it, so that it may never happen to you again.

Be free in your journey to internal freedom and forgive yourself and forgive others.

Courage

Dear friend,

I may not know you personally, but I do know that within in you, you contain an essence of golden energy that once released will fill the world with beauty. To unleash this you will require COURAGE.

To me the word courage means to have true self- awareness so that you are able to face challenges that scare you face on. To have courage for you may be:

To say ‘NO.’

To tell someone you need him or her in your life.

To speak up even when you’re afraid.

To say ‘YES.’

To have courage doesn’t mean you have to be famous or have had to gone through something terrible that has changed you forever. To have courage is: to be strong enough within yourself to know your own personal boundaries; for you to follow your heart and to fight for what you think is right; to go one way when the rest of the world is going the other, because you know and trust what is right for you. Life is not about your rights or your wrongs; it’s about fighting to find the inner you.

I am sending courage into your life. I would like you to remind yourself of at least 3 things in your life that make you courageous. Start with:

I am courageous because…

Have courage to face your weaknesses and strengths head strong and live a life full of golden energy. As Cinderella says: “Be kind, have courage and you’ll experience a little bit of magic in your life.”

Self Acceptance

  Dear friend,

I may not know you personally, but the word that I would like to share with you today is Self Acceptance.

To have “self acceptance” is to love yourself as a whole, to know yourself and your flaws AND STILL to love them and yourself for who you are.

I know that this may be easier said than done. I myself have gone through this journey and am sure it shall evolve, as I get older. For example in eighth grade at school, everything in my life seemed to be falling apart. My parents were getting divorced, I had just lost my best friend, and I didn’t know what to do with myself. However I then encountered someone who came into my life that influenced my thoughts and the way I see myself. This person said to me “Everything in your life may be going wrong. Maybe it’s the way people treat you or the way society looks down on you, however whatever it is, doesn’t define you, as long as you have yourself and you can wrap your arms around yourself, you have bear hug one.”

This message truly helped me in my life, because it is very true: as long as you have yourself to hug you don’t need anyone else. Now I’m not saying that you don’t need people in your life, but I am saying that if you feel alone or in a place where you do not know yourself, as long as you are willing to love yourself for who you are, and acknowledge the mistakes that you’ve made throughout your life, you always have ‘bear hug one’. And that responsibility of truly accepting who you are no matter what those around you think, is true self acceptance.

Throughout your life people may come and go, but you always have yourself. So love who you are and accept the inner core of your true being. You have to live for yourself, and that doesn’t make you selfish; it makes you aware of who you are. Embrace that, and embrace yourself.

All you need is “bear hug one”.
