Listen with an Intent to Understand

Be curious about all I have in store for you today. Instead of making judgements about those you encounter, listen with an intent to better understand and appreciate what they are sharing with you. Throw any hint of judgementalism to the wayside, including your own self-criticism inside your head. Allow yourself to be more at ease by accepting your own contribution as being worthy of attention and being enough for what is needed in the moment. All is well. You can trust that My hand is active in and all around your life.

When Others Disappoint or Irritate You

You can treat others kindly, giving them respect and dignity even when they disappoint or irritate you. Take a deep breath before choosing your words in response to those you find personally challenging. Then, acknowledge what they have to say, even if you disagree. Do this first, and try to listen without judging. Ask Me for help when being kind and respectful is hard for you. Bring the offense you’ve experienced to Me and ask for My help to be understanding in response. You don’t have to hide your difficult emotions from Me. I get it. Let Me validate you when others cannot out of pride or ego. I will help you with perspective and with what to say in response. Remember, love always wins out in the end. Choose loving-kindness over being “right”.

Leave the Judgement Calls Up to Me

Your biggest Achilles heel is worrying about what others think of you. I am not worried about that like you are. I see things differently. You are so prone to interpreting every glance, grimace, or comment as either positive, favorable, and ‘likeable’; or as negative, disdained, and a ‘turn-off’. Judging people and sizing everything up is deeply ingrained into your habits, yet this is the part I want you to work on with Me. Ask Me to take over the interpretations while you work on your response to others. Aim for acceptance, tolerance, and trying to understand where others are coming from. Leave the judgement calls up to Me as you work on embracing others just as they are. This, in turn, will bring you greater peace and improve your capacity to love unconditionally.

Let’s Trade Seats

I see when you are perching yourself on a pedestal of righteousness. I know that stems from you feeling hurt or wronged. It takes so much negative energy to be constantly judging other’s behaviors or intentions, or feeling bitter, angry, and annoyed by their actions. How about this: let’s trade seats for a while. Let Me be the judge of others as you climb down from that high seat, allowing Me to be the one carrying the burden of criticism. Only I can see the truth. Find that in walking humbly you can also experience greater peace. Let Me relieve you of unnecessary burdens and rid you of residual hurt so you can walk freely.

Eliminate Shaming Ways

You are so hard on yourself sometimes. I don’t judge you harshly, My beloved child. That part you must own and work to change. I call you to face your world-damaged heart, recognizing the inaccurate criticism blown out of proportion, and eliminate those hurtful and shaming ways you speak to yourself. Ask Me to help you reach in to be reassured and consoled. Love of self does not mean being selfish or egotistical. Rather, love of self is a call to recognize your Divine beauty; your inherently unique traits and attributes I wish to be confidently utilized and cherished.  Choosing to love yourself honors Me. You are sacred and valued.

Using Good Judgment

You know ‘right’ from ‘wrong’. I’ve instilled intuition to help you make good judgment, so live your life accordingly. Show others you value them. I will take care of you. Put Me in charge today and rest knowing that I am at the helm. It’s not all up to you and I can lead you on the right path.

Relax Your Judgmental Standards

Try being gentle on yourself. See how this influences your ability to give others Grace, too. There is wiggle room for more kindness to be shared when you relax your judgmental standards and let down your guard. Whenever you hold tight to offenses, I don’t have much space to work in you. The same is true for when you hang on to self-criticism. As you recognize these as barriers to love, bring them before Me as your ultimate Judge. See how I pardon offenses and erase criticism. Watch Me soften your heart and bring you Peace.

Slights and Offenses

You are more loved than you may realize. The tiniest slights and offenses that happen in daily life can skew your recognition of how likable you are. Don’t let these tiny, false claims get to you. Any thought that you are somehow unworthy of attention is a lie. I am the One who knows you and loves you. Ultimately, this is all that matters- but I know how you long to be close to others and not excluded or misjudged. For now, let Me in to soothe the hurt and provide reassurance. Confidence will return as you trust Me with your relationships. Ask Me to help remove any defensiveness from you so that others can draw closer. It’s OK to be vulnerable now and then.

How You Approach Things

I never leave you to handle things all by yourself. I can redeem past hurts & sorrows and help with current challenges, making Goodness happen, but you are still allowed the freedom to choose how you see and approach things. Consider bringing your perspective before Me for review. Allow Me to help sort things out and assist you with clearing your mind. As you become open to My loving, gentle guidance I will give you direction on how to handle whatever you are encountering. In choosing to push your momentary distress aside and trust Me instead, I’ll make way for a fresh outlook on the most helpful approach to your situation.

See Yourself As I See You

I have so much affection and love for you! You shine in ways that bring Me delight. I wish you could see yourself as I see you; how differently you would walk, carrying yourself with ease, lightness, and confidence in each step. Oh how it would change you to not be so worried about what others are thinking about you. They are drawn in with joy and an eagerness to be in your presence when you emanate Our united Love-Light. This is attainable just by choosing to accept My love for you and living by it with integrity and belief.
