the past few weeks, I have talked about the essential roles that Trust and
Forgiveness play in our lives. This
week, I want to talk about the third essential: Acceptance.
After a slew of tragic circumstances and poor choices in my life, I finally learned how to reclaim my ability to trust. Trust led swiftly to an understanding of the relationship I have with the Divine Mother and the workings of the universe. Through that understanding, I was able to find forgiveness in God, in others and in myself.
The acceptance piece just came naturally after having trust and forgiveness firmly rooted in my life. I can accept more in my life today than ever before. I might not always want to accept situations that cause more pain for me, but the duration of my "hold-out period" keeps becoming shorter and shorter. I might not understand why certain things are happening, but I know I don't need to know why everything is happening, just that it is in Divine motion. This is not to say that I just sit around and don't do what I need to do. I do whatever my part is to do and then I let go, to the best of my ability.
Finding Trust, Forgiveness and Acceptance can help you discover the most important love of all: love of self. I want to emphasize that love of self does not automatically translate into selfish love. I'm talking about loving that part of you that is part of God. Your True Self.
When you make that connection, you experience the love in your life (and/or attract love into your life) on a whole new level. I know this is true, because I have worked through this process on a personal level. More importantly, I have watched it manifest in the men and women who have participated in my workshops.
Be sure to come back next week, as the month of "love" comes to a close and the theme of reconnecting to our hearts comes full circle.
