Don’t Beat Yourself Up

Be kind to yourself today. Actually, do that EVERY day. It will be easier to treat others kindly when you practice this on yourself. Don’t beat yourself up over everything you eat, say, and do. Rehashing everything in your head isn’t serving you well, either. The truth is, I love you unconditionally! I want you to enjoy your food, cut yourself some slack, and be more playful today.  Your kindness, like your compassion, will shine through. You are helping others in ways you may not even recognize.

Elect to Rise Above

All people are carrying some measure of pain. Emotionally, physically, spiritually, everyone has been hurt or injured somewhere along the line. Some choose to live with intense focus on the discomfort or injustice of it all. Being stuck in the mire isn’t good long-term. Others elect to rise above it, looking for insights into how this can make them more compassionate or how it makes them grow stronger. Be one of those resilient ones today who acknowledges and validates the pain but also moves on. Be the one expressing hope and encouragement for better days. In other words, be My Light and speak My truth. I extend opportunities for peace to all.

Reflection of Me

Be your best reflection of Me today. I don’t ask that to pile on pressure to perform. Rather, to reflect Me means to show and share Light in any given situation. Be of good intention in your walk today. A smile and nod to the stranger; a kind word to a colleague; an utterance of self-compassion offered when mistakes happen. Recognize that I am both at your side as well as beaming from within when you do things such as this.

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.

Heal Hurtful Self-Talk

Lay those burdens aside. Come to Me in all your fragility, presenting those agonizing thoughts and experiences you keep re-hashing over and over again in your head. Allow Me to warm you from your core, like hands hovering near an open fire. Let the warmth of My reassuring love heal that hurtful self-talk, turning those lies to ashes. You are loved, purely and simply, just as you are. The past mistakes are already forgiven. There’s no benefit to clinging to them anymore.  Let the flame of My healing Spirit take over, renewing you for Good. It’s time to let that past go.

Called to Necessary Work

There is work to do today. Approach it lightheartedly, trusting that you’ll have the insight, skill, and stamina to do what needs to be done. Think of yourself as a partner on a mission with Me: your aim is to help modify the world into a place of care and compassion. Show it in small ways like messaging anyone who may be hurting and needs an attentive friend. Even your other tasks like organizing and responding to details are important to Me as part of My plan. It’s all necessary work which I have called you to do. View your work with delight and eagerness, knowing and trusting that this is My special assignment designed just for you. I love you and need you, and am with you in it all.

Be Exactly Who You Are

I ask you to be exactly who you are today. No false pretenses are needed. You can speak with confidence on topics you are familiar with. I know you can also listen attentively, attending well to others with genuine compassion and concern, because this is how I made you. You are right where you are supposed to be. Eat healthy, stay hydrated,-  taking good care of the vessel I’ve designed. Throw any residual shame or anxiety out the window into the rubbish pile. There is no place for that negativity or worry here in My loving Presence.

Your Vulnerable Self

I delight in your vulnerable self, because it is in your vulnerability that I can be drawn ever so close to you. I offer Light-filled moments for you to rest your head upon as I fill the room around you with peace. Let Me cover you in soft blankets of comfort and compassion. I share in your sorrow, yet I want you to see My Joy ahead. I still have much Goodness in store for you. Allow others to care for you in your time of sorrow. Don’t be afraid to show your sadness. I need you to demonstrate how to grieve just as much as how to have strength in faith.

Provide Understanding

You are living a full life, rounded out by trials and triumphs. These experiences make you rich in understanding, and it is this gift that you share so widely with others. Compassion is essential, and as you provide understanding to others you can ask for the same from them. I will be Present in this exchange. Goodness can abound and love always triumphs over darkness.

No Need To Be Defensive

You are tired. I need you to quiet your thoughts and listen to Me. It is time to replenish the well. Doing so will help your anger dissipate, too. There is no need to be on the defensive. Walk with Me. Bring Me into each encounter. Find that My Presence holds the stillness and calming you need. As you use My gentle eyes, you will be more compassionate and forgiving with others, recognizing that behind their aggression is fear and insecurity. I am watching and involved. My Goodness will permeate here.
