You feel it. There is an inner being, an inner working, a compass- a core. We know it when our intentions are misread and we feel sad. We feel it hurting when we are excluded, dismissed, unwanted or when our children or loved ones are in pain.
We know it when we are moved to act, to help, to give, and to love.
We know we are more than our body.
Yet, in this physical world, we are bombarded with images of perfection and fitness, the need to be liked and the dependence on others for our validation. It is so normal to focus on our physical bodies, our material possessions and our popularity as a sign of success, strength or status. This picture was taken in a moment I felt body confidence and like I had pretty hair. It was only looking back at it that I realized the message of my image was deeper than the image itself.
What if we tune into the deeper world- instead of what is outside of ourselves for validation?
Meditation, fitness and personal development are vehicles to explore what really matters.
We can realize that being true to ourselves, accepting others in their wholeness, leading with love, and following our bliss are much more important than looking perfect, having thousands of followers or lining our closets with expensive shoes.
The more we tune into that core and that voice inside, the more we see the light in our own lives and remember that this body and those materials are only temporary.
The judgement of others is meaningless. Our human side has a hard time letting it go and I am no different, but when we really get down to the heart of the matter- all that matters is living our truth with love and purpose.
The more we realize we don't have to get caught up in the darkness, the judgement, the muck and the mire of the world around us, the more brightly our light shines.
Today, I placed some frankincense, arborvitae, rose and Roman Chamomile in the diffuser. I listened to my personal development. I meditated and I did my workout. I strengthened my physical spirit and my emotional being- all in service to that inner light I hope to shine today.
Using my essential oils creates a deeper experience for me and it is one tool to connect with my truth, my light.
What tools do you use?
Love yourself today, regardless of the external. You are miraculous and a gift to the world.
