On this journey called life, each one of us is a spiritual being having a human life experience. As long as I can remember, I have always felt different. I was conditioned as a child to mind my manners, not to ask questions, keep my opinions to myself, and do as I was told. These things contributed to my lack of confidence and self-esteem. Much to my confusion, I was often told that I had no common sense. In addition, there were many aspects of my physical body that I did not like and was self-conscious of.
Reflecting on those years, perhaps I was special rather than different. I chose to only see my perceived imperfections rather than seeing myself as a beautiful, unique, and miraculous creation. I will admit that I am still a work-in-progress when recognizing all of my physical attributes as perfect in every way. The facial features I disliked when I was young now happen to be my favorite. Choosing to change my perception, I eventually shifted the energy of how I view my physical body.
Message for Your Journey
I invite you to embrace the you that is YOU. Yes, this means all of you, including any perceived imperfections you may have as well. Recognize that there is no one else in the Universe exactly like you. Make the choice to love yourself for who you are – fully and completely. Choose to change your perception of any unpleasant memories and view them as opportunities for learning and growth. Accept your uniqueness and dismiss any perceived flaws or imperfections, because you are perfect just the way you are.
Tool for Your Journey
Practice verbally expressing love for YOU. Look in a mirror and tell yourself, “I love you.” You can do this in the morning when you are brushing your teeth and combing your hair. It is important for you to mean it. Allow yourself to truly feel the love you have for YOU and embrace this feeling fully. In doing so, you will attract this same love into your life from others because of the Universal Law of Attraction, which is based on the idea that whatever we give a lot of attention to will become part of our lives. In doing so, you are co-creating with the Universe.
Affirm ~ I am beautiful. My physical body is unique to me.
