Today, I was looking through some old channelled messages from the Angels and found this very personal one from September 2008. Part of me began to wonder if I have come any further along the proverbial road of ‘Self Love’ since then. But I KNOW I have. Simply because of what I have allowed into my life and what I now believe to be true about myself. It is just appropriate to be reminded of this again, on the eve of what I call ‘Love Day’. Let’s peel another layer and LOVE ourselves more, OK?
Love to you!
I was going to bed the other night, thinking about how I feel about myself and how IN THE PAST my own self esteem issues have blocked me from what I want most in life (ironic really!) and the Angels said:
“Do you remember just how PERFECT you are?”
“Umm, yes”, I said….
The Angels said “Your version of perfect is quite distorted. The world in which you live strives for the kind of perfection that is never fulfilling, or isn’t until you really get the meaning of what we see as perfection – that is YOU ARE A CHILD OF GOD. THERE ARE NO MISTAKES.
“Yes”, I said. I know that. “I’m just trying to really GET it.”
“We know. But remember not to make it too complicated. Just be. Just let yourself be who you are. Take time out for yourself, honour your own space, your own desires, your dreams. We know that you do this but for some reason you do all of that and then get caught up on the outer appearance of everyone else and try to compare it with others. Who said that walking as “they” do is best? It’s just different Anna, and you know what we say about different. That different is different only to remind others that in truth EVERYONE is the same.
“So why do some people not see that?” I said.
“Because some people are trying to look outside themselves for the Divine. And even you are to a certain point, Anna. Because if you truly remembered who you are then your body would just feel like another amazing divine part of you and those people that decide to announce how different you are, are just there because you choose to hear them.”
“So what do I do now?”
“You are doing well, Anna. We see you honouring yourself so much more. We see that you are finally beginning to welcome your body as part of You. And it is not ALL of you but it is a precious gift that you have given yourself. You’ll see. But now you must do your best to take the word “compare” or “different” out of your vocabulary. And in the mean time, not care about the reactions of others. Maybe, when someone “notices” you, you could see it that you are just allowing another to see how unique each one of you is. For all you know, those people that stare and ask about you could, like you, be helping to change Earth’s perception of “perfection” – one person at a time. So thank God for that. Thank yourself for that. Because the You that decided to come to Earth this way, knew what You were doing…”
“OK, yes, that’s a good reminder. I did. Not easy. But I do remember that. It brings tears. But I think it’s because I remember. So what about the visions I’ve had of me dancing? I saw myself running on a track last week. How does that fit in with it all?”
“That fits because it is the truth. Because you CAN do all those things. And ARE already in many ways. But again, just not in ways that you (or others) might expect. And you receive those visions as a reminder that your prayers ARE heard and answered. Just because you chose your body as it is now, it does not mean it cannot change as you remember more of who you are. BUT dear Anna, remember, when you are running, dancing and all of that you are not MORE perfect! Because you cannot be MORE perfect. You are as you are!”
“Thank you. So if I chose my body for particular reasons, it’s OK to want to be “freer” in those ways now?”
“Yes, Anna. It is always OK. You are always free to change and choose again. Especially if it brings more peace. There is just no pressure from us. And those who truly love you will love you anyway. But as we’ve said, it’s most important for you to LOVE YOU no matter what! And THAT is what inspires another. And, if that feeling and knowing leads to you experiencing that “change” in your body so you ARE more able to dance and run as you desire, then that will inspire another too. But let yourself inspire yourself first. Be your own inspiration. That is the true miracle. To remember who you truly are…..we see you, we know you.
It was one of those moments that helped kick my ego out for a while and remember what matters! I love those Angels for loving me. It’s good for me to be here in this moment. I AM feeling good about ME. Ahhhh, another layer……another step closer to, as Whitney Houston says, “The Greatest Love of All”. May we ALL feel that Love and in turn, change the whole word…”
