Give Yourself Permission to Be Human December 9, 2008

Posted by greenlavender in Emotions, Energy, Healing, Inspiration, Life, Spirituality.

Listen to your heart, you will find the most fulfilling things. The road to freedom is directly ahead of you and most don’t choose to see it. Open not only your eyes, but your senses, all of them. Freedom will bring you happiness, fulfillment, joy, love. It’s always been in front of you, you simply need to see it. It’s in your reach. Never give up, no matter what. Sometimes, you might think things are not going your way, or seem like they are slipping away from you; but that is not the case. You never know what the next minute will bring you. If you give up, you will miss that next minute. Everything happens for a reason, always. You learn something new in every new experience. That new knowledge you gain for a reason, to help you move on to the next curb on your path, to prepare you for what’s coming up next. It might make you stronger, wiser, more in love, it can be anything. You might not be aware of that new knowledge, but always be aware that everything you experience is essential to your well-being, despite how difficult it may be to believe. As long as you will something to happen, as long as it comes from your heart not your ego, it will happen.

Remember that you are human, as much as you can feel strong and happy, you are allowed to feel down. When you do, allow yourself to live the feeling and it will move on faster to happiness. If you don’t allow yourself to feel sadness, grief, anger, fear, those feelings get buried deep inside yourself and will eat at you until you choose to let them go. To let them go is to feel: cry, scream, write about it, do whatever you need to let those feelings out — when you do it out of love, you don’t hurt anyone by doing so. Most of all, don’t judge yourself. You are in a human body – you are allowed to feel.

What have you done for yourself lately? When you take care of yourself first, it is much easier to take care of others. When you are one with yourself, when you are aware of your true feelings, you can let go of whatever is going on inside you to allow yourself to truly listen to others. You realize that what you could have taken personally before has really nothing to do with you, but everything to do with the other person’s feelings and how they express them. You can truly help when you are open to that reality.  

After you are done reading this post, shut down your computer and go do something for yourself. Take a bubble bath, go for a walk, read a book, paint, write a short story, whatever your heart tells you to do. While you do that, listen to yourself. What is your heart telling you? Trust it.

There is something beautiful when humans allow themselves to become human. If we wish to spiral outward, we must start within. Thanks for the great post.

Many people spend the better part of their lifetimes rediscovering what it means to be human. We are born in a physcial body and slowly become conditioned to believe we are something we are not. It requires courage and a willingness for self-directed learning to rediscover the joy of the truth we temporarily forgot. Happy New Year!
