A few weeks ago I had a moment where I felt as though I was being judged. An exchange occurred, and a comment was made in passing in reference to something physical about me. The actual comment are not relevant, but I felt called to blog about this because so many of us can feel judged by others, judged by something outside of ourselves, even judged by God.
Judgement is always an illusion of fear, to keep us stuck, to hold us back, to keep us playing small.
The experience prompted me to do some soul-searching and investigate why I felt judged. First.I allowed myself to react to my feelings, and my perception of the “judgement” Then I went to the text of “A Course In Miracles. next, the teachings of Abraham Hicks, and I asked the angels for guidece, What I received was a knowing that in truth there is no judgement. Judgement is not real. This was hard for me to accept at first, because for me, when I felt as though my physical body was being judged that felt very vividly painful/ I felt as though the comment was cutting straight to the core of every flaw I’d ever felt about my body. It brought up feelings that I wasn’t good enough, that these apparent flaws implied there was something wrong with me. I felt instantly unattractive, my spirit sunk as I began to wonder if people really saw me as something that needed to be fixed as I felt these comment suggested.
Was I really something that just needed to be fixed?
Make no mistake, the person involved had no malicious intent, in fact, I’m sure they felt their comment was harmless. People are often completely unaware of the power their words can have when they speak. In the moment though, this comment brought up every feeling I’ve ever had about my body, being viewed by other people as different, unattractive, and unlovable. It wasn’t even the words spoken, it was the implication that because something looked “abnormal” there was something wrong with me that needed improvement. I didn’t like been seen like this, because it didn’t feel accurate at all
The angels let me know that when we feel judged by others, this is a sign that something doesn’t match up with our true selves, our spiritual essence, our truth. This is why we feel pain, because our true self our higher self only celebrates what is loving and wonderful about us. There are no real “flaws” nothing that needs to be “fixed.” When we feel judged by others, we know something s off. we are also judging ourselves. It’s a sign we are placing too much weight on the opinions of other people and not giving ourselves enough self-love.
This took the focus completely away from the comments that initially pushed forward my feelings, It brought the focus away from anything external including the other personality. It brought things right back to center – back within. The only person who has power over my feelings is me. I can choose to let one person’s perception of my physical body bother me, or I can choose the truth I know.
I have chosen come into a body that deals with some challenges to learn important lessons spiritually; I know it looks a heck of a lot worse to an outside bystander than it actually feels for me.. I am so much more than my body, and deep down I love the person that I am, I try on a daily basis not to focus on my illusion of “flaws.” It isn’t always easy, that is the journey. I try to focus on being the best person I can be. I make the choice to be of service to others and to the world.
I consider it a personal mission to help people feel connected to the loving essence present in everything. Once we are aware of this love and it’s power, we become acquainted with how wonderful we really are. Potential becomes limitless, and miracles occur everywhere. This is why working with angels is my calling.
Not long after this experience where I felt judged, I was at the health food store getting groceries I met a lady there who kindly helped me pack my buggy, She asked me during the course of our conversation, what physical condition I was dealing with. When I told her Cerebral Palsy, she was visibly shocked, and went on to explain that fro her perspective a person could not tell it was so mild which is why she asked.
I knew this was the angels way of showing me an example of how the same thing cam be perceived differently. One experience was completely out of alignment with the truth of who I am, which is why I felt the pain of illusion judgement.
Lesson 31 in A Course In Miracles says:
I am not the victim of the world I see.”
We are certainly not, since we create our own reality. These two closely linked incidents were powerful teachers that I wanted to share. May they shed light for all of you who read this.
Self help literature and medical science alike have been linking mind, body and spirit together for decades. I believe every human on the planet would benefit from allowing affirmations into their daily life.
Carol Bernette was once quoted as saying: “Only I can change my life, no one else can do it for me.”
This is such a powerful statement I needed to be a darkly place, before I was willing to allow affirmative prayers and affirmative statements into .my daily spiritual practice. Not that I never used affirmations, mind you, but I wasn’t consistent about it by any stretch. Many times, I would say the words, but energetically underneath the phrases, I really didn’t believe what I was saying. Therefore, I was resisting the love and the true essence behind the words. Furthermore, if my affirmations were not achieving the results I wanted in the time frame I had predetermined in my mind; I would use that as evidence that things were not working, and I would proceed to beat myself up over it. This is all an ego trip, and I can fall into it even today if I am not vigilant in creating my thoughts. Yes, you read right, I said creating my thoughts. When I talk to others about how they are doing with their affirmation work, I’m comforted in the knowledge that as humans we all struggle with the idea that we have the power to create out thoughts, that we are not simply passive participants in our lives. This can be a hard concept to grasp, especially when you consider that we all are equally capable of creating situations that we clearly do not want, yet on an unconscious level and we live with these circumstances because they stem from a base belief we have carried since childhood or picked elsewhere up along the way. We all want to believe we would never create an unwanted desire, unconscious or not.
Once we are able to accept that we create our experiences (this is a moment to moment acceptance, not just an hourly or a daily one – then we become truly empowered. I’ve been a “fix” personality most of my life. My intuition and my sensitivity (when I I choose not to stand in my power, but rather latch on to the idea that something “out there” perceived by my ego mind has power over me – caused me to take on the fear, pain and suffering of others without even being aware I was taking it on. Several years before I began my coaching practice, I would have told you I felt completely alone in how I felt. Now however, I know that many others share the same feelings a had. I’ve also been giving the blessing of knowing that every experience I have ever had, every emotion I have ever felt can now support someone who is feeling something similar as we are all one. I spoke before of being a “fixer” my sensitivity made me acutely aware of energies, emotions and feelings even if I didn’t fully comprehend what I was picking up on. This also gave me an intense desire to take away pain and suffering, to fight to solve “problems” even to my own detriment. This placed me in a position to understand what it means to have an obsessive desire to please. This tension filled energy is all about control. It’s about going out and getting fixing and solving. It’s a trap so many of us can unknowingly fall into. In our desire to get, have, achieve and make things happen, we hold on so tight we stand in direct opposition to what we want.
The key to using affirmations is gentle willingness. I have found it helpful to use the word willing in my affirmations, especially if whatever it is I am holding the intention to create something I might feel is slightly out of my reach. Willingness creates belief. In other words, even if you don’t fully believe, but you have the will to believe coupled with trust in spirit to do the work for you, and the patience to wait for divine timing. That is enough. This is the gentle love the beloved has for each and every one of us. Gentle willingness allows me to relax a lot more, and has really taken the pressure off my personal spiritual practice. Here are some affirmations that have created shifts for me. I share them with the intention that they assist you to create shifts for you as well. I want to preface that using affirmations does not mean simply “Be positive” even in the most horrendous of situations. This is a common misconception, and once that I didn’t understand when I began inviting spirit into my life. No human being should expect themselves to make sunshine and rainbows out of something that feels like it sucks. Likewise, being negative about everything isn’t authentic either. The true essence in inner work is the individual process of being willing and receptive to uncovering the underlying lesson and the love within any situation.
I am willing to receive the lessen and the love in Name specific situation. It is done. Sometimes when people begin affirmation work being specific about a desire they have feels too unbelievable for them. If someone is wanting to create more financial abundance but to start a specific figure feels too intimidating in these situations, I have found it best to go much more general/ I am open to new and creative possibilities for abundance thank you. I am worthy of receiving abundance in all ways. And so it is. Try it and remember to be gentle with yourself
