I feel as though someone is supposed to hear this. (Can't think of a better title.)
A friend sent the following to me a week or so ago. It is from the book Telos, Volume 3 -- Protocols of the Fifth Dimension. I haven't read the book, but it's my understanding that it is channeled material. Regardless of what its source is, I really resonated with it, and it made me remember some important things about daily living. I feel as though someone here is supposed to hear this now, at this time, so I'm posting it:

It is the allowing of self-compassion that moves you into the vibration of grace. It is the fusion of the physical Earth with the etheric realms, of the merging of an awakened truth with the power of love that moves you into your mastery....

When we speak of love, trust, faith, compassion, grace and gratitude, we do not speak of intellectual concepts. Compassion is not an idea whose time has come. Compassion is an energy that creates great oscillations in the fabric of your universe. Grace is not a religious notion or promise, it is a palpable energy that can be witnessed and utilized in the world around you. Faith and trust are not promises made or bargains to be kept. They are the frequencies that power each breath that you take in the physical. With each in-breath and out-breath your soul takes in the divine. Gratitude is not polite statements you are taught as children. It is an energetic acknowledgment to the universe that you are in alignment with Source. And love is not a romantic or religious exclamation. Love is quite profoundly the energy that powers all of creation.


These things aren't just theoretical "airy-fairy" things, in my opinion; they're very real laws of the Universe. I sometimes forget this during the course of day-to-day living. In my opinion, using these rules is using magic in daily life.

It is the allowing of self-compassion that moves you into the vibration of grace.


*sigh* Self-compassion; my "blind" spot.

I can offer compassion to almost anyone with whom I come into contact; "real" life and internet. But, offer myself compassion? I am most un-merciful with myself and my Self.

I read once that you should "treat yourself as you would your best friend." I've not yet attained that virtue.

Thank you for the reminder.

3. self talk is so critical, from a psychological point of view
I'm better at this than I used to be since my third chakra issues have resolved. However, I definitely still need to remind myself of this.

4. Too true. I know it *intellectually*
now if only I would *know* it.

As so many people do, I have the added history of years of a parent "reminding" me of how worthless and stupid I am/was. The programming may not be hard-wired, but it's danged tough to re-wire, nonetheless.

Thank you for reminding me (in Truth) the origins of my programming.

8. "I'm OK! Goddess/God/AllThatIs does not make junk!"
It takes a long time and lots of work but negative programming like this can be deleted. Find something nice about yourself in different areas that you can admit are nice and remind yourself of them often. I used to look in the mirror and cringe. I still am not the spitting image of Catharine Zeta-Jones but at least I can look in the mirror without flinching these days. I started my selfesteem project by noting that my eyebrows are OK and naturally unibrowless. I have a sense of humor and even occasionally make people laugh. Stuff like that and if it was funny or odd all the best. 'I may be X but I am still nicer than (insert name of * admin person)' ;)

Sometimes it helped me to imagine after repeating a self-critical phrase automatically to see a giant VOID stamp slamming down on the words. OTher times I breathed light or sent Reiki into my brain to wash that phrase and the memories of the people who said it or something similar to me away.

whatever methods you use please keep it up! You too are a Child of the Divine and absolutly DESERVE it!

13. I used to practice dismissing them from my presence.
As though I were running a meeting and they were taking the discussion off-topic; running efficient meetings a "real-life" talent I have.

Most days I do fine. During times when I'm physically sick or dealing with increased stress levels; my old practices fall by the wayside.

Thank you so much for the reminder. I need this now more than during just the good times.

I enjoy your threads and posts, Shallah. Thank you for them.

:hug:

6. You're awesome. Buy yourself a little treat.
As you enjoy it, think to yourself, "I'm a great person and I deserve this. And more like it!"

Your point of view of yourself is more accurate than your parent's, because only you know your true inner self. No parent can, and so their criticisms are based on incomplete information.

9. Sometimes it helps to see yourself as a little child.
I always have much more self-compassion for the "little child" me than for the me who I consider to be an adult.

My husband taught me that it's a totally valid excuse to not do something (or to do something) because I want to "take care of myself". I never really considered this before.

Take it one step at a time; try doing small things to be nice to yourself. Of course, this isn't to allow yourself to have excuses for not being responsible, but I suspect that this isn't your issue.

Good luck learning to truly love yourself, Cerridwen. This is an important lesson to learn.

14. Very good point.
You know, it might just be time for me to get out the crayons and coloring book. It might sound a bit weird, but there's nothing like coloring to take me back to childhood and play with my more playful Self.

Thank you, IHAD.

:hug:

Thank you for this post. I'm glad for the reminder that our positive actions benefit all of creation, and are never wasted, no matter how small they may seem to us at the time.

10. BRRRR!! reading this, the chills were just running up and down
from head to toe!!!

Ahhhhhh, it felt good!!!
As Abraham explains over and over, it's the feeling, the emotion that is your compass.
Yeah, the negative, lousy feelings are old habit, so it can seem daunting when they creep up over and over....
But gently guiding your thoughts, gaugeing your vibration by noticing your feelings is such a useful tool.

Anyway, Hi folks :hi:
I was looking for other LOA folks here. :)

12. I think MOST of us needed to hear this!

Thank you, IHAD!

I agree with you that it's easier to love the child within you, and have compassion for her suffering, than to love your adult self. The child is a very good place to start.

Maybe that's why psychotherapy can be so effective. You need to have a witness to your pain and lack of self-love in someone who will affirm your worth. Then you can create your own feelings of self-worth.
