Day one hundred sixteen of #MediMagic365 is complete I started my meditation today at 5:00 am with my normal routine of big deep belly breaths, relaxing my entire body and muscles and filling my body with white light. I sat in my normal pose of sitting with my legs crossed and hands resting on my knees palms facing up with my index finger and thumb touching so the energy I was circulating throughout my body would stay within me and not release through my palms.
Today's meditation was another breakthrough for me. It started yesterday evening as I gave up technology, TV and all other electronics for the evening and made a point to just "be" and see what came up. During this time I asked the question what makes me truly happy. I sat outside in my beautiful backyard with a hot cup of tea, and just listened to the birds chirping, the sound of the slight breeze and cars passing by on the nearby street. I spent some non interrupted time with my son and wife just being, talking and enjoying each others company. And then came time to journal in my newly co-created Intention Grabber Journal™ and as I began to write my intention the words acceptance came from the pen as I wrote in the journal. I sat back for a minute and dwelled on that to get clarity on what I meant by acceptance. And what came to me what acceptance of myself. So I did my journaling and let it be.
Now to my meditation this morning as I sat and was in my natural state of being I noticed I was repeating the words "I completely love and accept myself just the way I am". I repeated that throughout my entire meditation. And what finally came to me after 25+years was that I have been trying to be a person others would like and accept so I would try and "impress" them for acceptance starting with my family such as my grandparents, cousins, ETC.. I believe the reason for this was that my father passed away when I was 9 years old and my mother remarried, and I was raised by my much older grandparents whom I love dearly, so I believe I felt alone and wanted to be accepted so I tried to "fit in" and be accepted in some way or form with others, because as I now realize I felt alone. I thought I had to be somebody people would "like" and I wanted to be liked and accepted so I would try and be the person I thought they liked instead of being myself. That's not to say I have not been authentic my whole life because I have I think it just means that I might have done some things that I may not have wanted to do just so others wouldn't think of me as boring.
But now that this has become present to me and I have acknowledged it I now completely love and accept myself just the way I am. And by doing and knowing this it takes pressure and stress off me to try and please and conform to the way others "think" I should be and just be me Authentically in all I do and all my interactions.
The flip side of this and that I also asked for an answer to during my meditation was what truly makes ME happy? Now that I completely love and accept myself just the way I am what makes me happy?? And what came up is spending time with my wife and son, and close friends living a happy, wealthy, fun, life of freedom to chose what we want to do and what makes us happy and guiding others to discover what that truly is for them and bringing love,happiness, joy into our world on our terms not what is the "norm" or what is the expected structure of you have to work hard to be successful. Life is meant to be experienced, fun and doing what makes us happy in each moment its not meant to be doing what we "should' do but what we "want" to do that truly makes our heart sing and brings us happiness. And that is exactly the mission myself, and my co-creators are on.
Conclusion: Now that I completely love and accept myself just the way I am and know what truly makes my heart sing I along with my co-creators can bring that into our world and guide and walk with others on their journey to do the same.
Do you completely love and accept yourself just the way you are?? Or are you doing what I did for so many years and trying to be accepted?? The truth is until we truly love and accept ourselves were not living our life fully authentically.
