The Spoken Words of Spirit--November 1, 2011
Why not take time to refresh your thoughts when you are feeling like you are in a funk? Anxiety is often exacerbated by the brutality of our own inner thoughts. Far too often, people will take ample time to belittle themselves and moan about everything that is wrong in their lives, but spend much less time focusing on all the things that are right. Whenever you find yourself in a pattern that is not mentally healthy, step back and reassess what is important to you. Give yourself a chance to evaluate the love and respect that is available from numerous people.
We--Spirit--can say this because we know that other people will not deem you inferior unless you orchestrate your words and actions to be that way. If you can learn to absorb the many blessings of life, what transpires is more of a “self-appreciation” for your own mere existence. Never dispel the balance of power between your loving self and soul. Although you may see that as separate issues, the spiritual reality is that they are intertwined and reliant on each other. Your soul gets strengthened when you learn to blend your physical thoughts and actions with something that more closely resembles the teachings of the Golden Rule.
Your relationship with yourself is more important than any other you can have. To think humanity is supposed to be a thing of harmony is correct, although it is also much more difficult to achieve when you cannot even be honest with yourself. How do you expect others to treat you well if you are not truthful with all of your own issues? There is no basis for real growth if you want to sugarcoat your deficiencies. On the other hand, if you are truthful in looking at yourself, the rest of the world needs to respond to the real you and not the façade that you want everyone to believe. Why fear who you are, provided who you are is living in the manner of truth, love and peace?
There will be fewer times that you will feel anxious. Living in a state of truth takes away much of the anxiety. Allowing yourself to make the changes that are necessary for you to be happy might cause some initial problems, but if you have enough trust in that the path you want is better for you, why are you waiting? Do you enjoy the constant fear that arises from the insecurities of staying in a pattern that is unhealthy? It makes no difference if it physically or emotionally related; or if it is relationship or spiritually connected. Get out of your own way and start making the adjustments you need to make! One step at a time will always bring you further away from where you are now. Trust that the people and power of angels are ever-present to lift you up and help. Believe in The Spoken Words of Spirit.
