Ask yourself, “Am I willing to take the steps needed to create my own peace and happiness?” If you answered “YES”, then breaking free can begin today. You can be the hero of your own life story, one day at a time, when you get the support you need to nurture yourself through each stage of your evolution and begin to love yourself as you heal your own life.
Waiting for things to be different is a wearisome, frustrating course of action. But embracing growth in the areas of your mind, body, emotions and spirit is exhilarating. It can be a positive challenge that shifts your world into an essential, interactive journey. The moment you become willing to flow with the process, something powerful happens. You open a doorway to learning how to release the blocks and barriers that have been getting in the way of you discovering your own power, inner wisdom, and strengths.
If you feel an emotion—an old, repressed, hardened chunk of emotion or a more recent one that has arisen along the path, you can free it and the belief that is attached to it: I am unlovable. Life has to be difficult. I am not enough.
When you release the stale emotional energy of the past and the false beliefs linked to it, your spirit ignites and your body shifts. You experience a cleansing and detoxification. Transformation takes place on several levels. In time a new lesson comes to light. You awaken to the truth that you can choose happiness, freedom, forgiveness, and self-love. Soon you come to a more evolved awareness about yourself, about life. I am lovable. Life is intended to be simple, easy, exciting, and adventurous. I am liberated to be at peace. I have choices about my experiences. I can reveal my heart and soul to the world. Then, right before your eyes, the change that you've been waiting for happens, but it happens as a result of your own evolutionary process—not because something or someone outside of you transformed.
Trust the process of healing yourself. Honor it, respect it, revere it. When you start to love yourself more each day, it's astonishing how your life continuously gets better. You feel better. You look healthier. You become connected to your soul purpose. Money is available as you need it. Your relationships improve, or the negative ones melt away making space for positive supportive people to come into your life.
Taking charge of your life experiences leads to a remembrance of how incredibly wonderful you truly are and always have been. Welcome the changes that can be yours. Let the universe help you, as you become willing to take an active part in creating your well-being.
Show up and watch, as all you need is revealed to you one step at a time. It's your moment to sparkle and shine.
