Today’s Inspired Action: comes from SHERO Louise Hay.
Be GENTLE + KIND + PATIENT with yourself!
Louise goes on to say: A good example of patience is a GARDEN. From a patch of dirt, to seeds, to water, to nurture. If you continue tending to your garden day after day, if you’re patient… the garden will grow and blossom.
Your MIND is a garden.
What kind of things would you like to happen in your mental garden? Select the seeds|thoughts that will contribute to creating the garden of thoughts you want to happen.
Plant each and every thought in the fertile soil of your subconscious Mind where it can grow bountiful + wonderful. Be open to new ways of thinking. Remember, the resistance we experience in doing anything new is part of the process to making the changes.
In asking the question, “how do I love myself”… you are already in the process of loving yourself. And as you learn your new ways of thinking, be GENTLE + KIND + PATIENT with yourself as you plant new thoughts in your mind. Soon enough the resistance will wain. Like riding a bike. It becomes second nature, and something you’ll never forget over time spent riding.
Also, WATCH FOR WEEDS. Pluck them out at the root. [There’s always an EMOTIONAL PAY OFF for whatever weeds you have been allowing to grow in the garden of your mind. Watch this video on CHANGING BELIEFS to learn more about this].
Treat yourself as you would someone you really really like – or like a gentle child. It’s okay if you make mistakes as you are learning. You don’t have to be perfect. Learning takes time, it never feels just right the first time you do anything new. Sometimes doing something we have never done before can even feel wrong… just because we haven’t done it before. But once we do it a few times, we understand we can get use to it. Like riding a bike for the first time. With a little bit of practice, it can become normal and natural.
Your Mind is not going to LOVE yourself totally in one day… due to the way we understand how to condition it and work with it. But if EVERYDAY yo can love yourself a little more every day… in a few months… you can LOVE YOURSELF SO MUCH! The universe will hear you.
