The Bliss of Self-Acceptance

self-acceptanceOnce upon a time in meditation, I received a crystal clear message that I am absolutely and eternally wonderful; and the only problem I have ever had is not knowing that.

Really?  The only problem I have ever had is not knowing I’m wonderful?  Wow!

In that moment, I was freed from my lifetime belief that there was something wrong with me.

In that moment, I really understood that I could stop trying to fix myself because I wasn’t ever broken.

In that moment, along with the realization that I am absolutely and eternally wonderful, came the knowing that so is everyone else.  Huge!  Life changing!  Blissful!

Over the next few weeks and months, as I settled into this joyful and empowering knowledge, I began to shift from a focus on self-improvement to a focus on self-acceptance.

From the age of about 19, I had been a self-improvement junkie.  I read every book and took every course that promised to make me a better, happier person and to fix what was wrong with me.

But, for me, that lifelong commitment to self-improvement had been based on the belief that, if I just worked hard enough, I could overcome all the terrible things that were certainly wrong with me and finally become “good enough.”

Self-improvement driven by a belief in not being good enough is both endless and unfulfilling.

Imagine for a moment how it would feel to simply accept yourself – who you are, everything you’ve ever done or not done, how much you weigh, how much money you make – everything about yourself just the way you are.

There’s a fear, I know.  You might be thinking it right now.  It goes like this:  “Well, if I really accept myself, won’t I lose all motivation to do anything and stop trying altogether and just live in my pajamas?”  Nope!  In fact, it’s exactly the opposite.  Rather than zapping motivation, full self-acceptance actually frees energy and creativity and makes real self-improvement much easier and much more fun.

From the high vibration of self-acceptance:
 you’re aligned with Source, with Who You Really Are
 you’re a vibrational match to your desires
 you feel worthy and deserving
 you release judgment and fully accept others
 you broadcast a vibration that allows others to fully accept you

Transformational Process.  If you’re willing to give self-acceptance a try, contemplate this prayer for 5 minutes a day for one week:

“Oh, God, show me the truth about myself,
no matter how beautiful it is.”
– Macrina Weiderkher

Do this process and, at the end of one week, you’ll be well on your way to feeling the relief, the high vibration, and the bliss of self-acceptance.
