Self Appreciation

Look at your self right now in a positive light. Look to all the things you have done well this week. Look at everything you have achieved, however big or small. You are an amazing person who deserves to be both loved and appreciated. 

Now look at all the ways in which you feel you failed this week, let yourself or others down. Now imagine how much better you would have done in those moments if you had received more love, more appreciation and more support. Your failings are not your fault. When you look at yourself in a negative light you are beginning to cut off all the ways in which you could energetically receive more support love and care and thus making your challenges even harder. 

So, whatever mistakes you feel you have made, today, yesterday, this week, last week, last month, last year, in your whole life. You are going to let them go, you are going to forgive yourself, you are letting go, you are forgiving yourself. You cannot do better until you are better and you cannot be more and give more without allowing yourself to receive more. 

This is not a selfish game we play here. When you are angry or frustrated with yourself, it becomes a burden for those around you, whether you choose to internally or externally project your feelings onto them. By seeing the light in yourself you are able to see more light in others. When you think and believe you are good enough, you will stop berating others either with your thoughts or actions. 

So let us look upon ourselves and others in light. Let us see the best in ourselves and those around us. Lets play the appreciation game. Don’t fear, you don’t have to punish yourself and others so that lessons can be learnt – use the power of appreciation to draw out all the positive elements. In this way you are supporting and encouraging yourself and others. 

Lets start with you.

Look at yourself and tell yourself that you deserve to be loved, you deserve to receive. Imagine opening yourself up to receive and allow love to flow through you. See yourself relaxing, opening your heart. Your muscles soften as you relax your mind. You are going to allow yourself to receive more. you let go of any tension you hold in your body and relax the muscles on your face. You are relaxing, you feel relaxed, you see yourself as relaxed. You feel very comfortable in yourself. You are able to let go of any past hurts that you have both inflicted or received. Now is a new moment and you are going to start again in faith that you are worthy, that you are good enough. You look to all the positive aspects of yourself. You recognise how hard you try, how much you give and how willing you are, you see yourself as supportive caring and kind. You see that you think good thoughts about yourself and others. You see all the light there is within and around you.You feel better and better in every second the more you read and absorb these words into your consciousness. You see that you are intelligent. You are focused and disciplined. You see and recognise the times when you are emotionally stable, competent and forgiving. You recognise how much you have to give and how much others receive through you. You notice your individual gifts and pleasant personality traits. You see that you are a happy person. You have a wonderful smile and an open heart. You see yourself as open and welcoming, kind and generous. You love yourself. You can see what a deserving soul you are. You continue to appreciate yourself and look to all the qualities you have. You know that there are many people out there who would love to have many of your gifts, talents and qualities. So you are grateful for being you. You are a truly divine person who is a pleasure to be around. You imagine being around others and people love being around you.

Being around others

The people that connect with you feel comfortable and open in your present. You notice how the people around you are relaxed and peaceful. They feel protected in your energy and are able to open and share themselves freely. You see yourself as happy confident and relaxed. You are accepting of others and you see yourself as warm and welcoming. People are drawn towards you like flies to a light. They enjoy being in your presence and buzz of your positive vibe. This feels good. So you focus further and further upon your great social skills. You notice that you are seeing too the light in those around you. You are seeing them as relaxed, you are seeing them as open, you are seeing them as appreciative. So this is not a selfish or arrogant game. The light is shared and spread inwards and outwards. You are noticing that others are a pleasure to be around, that you feel relaxed and open in their company. You are able to be yourself and by this I mean the best of yourself. You are able to relax and be open. You are able to shine your light and your truth. And your truth is wonderful. You are able to shine. You are confident, generous and open.

Projecting Positive Emotions and Expectations onto Others

Projecting Positive Emotions and Expectations onto Others

For each energy – choose a person who you see as the opposite to the desired energy and now project a new image onto that person. The people in your life are cinema screens – your mind is the projector. Your perception of others is coloured by your own emotional process. And remember whatever you project onto them is what you are creating within your self, so as you give, you receive!

Perception of Reality in Relationships.

How do you change your perception of reality? Every part of your emotional reality is a projection. Your emotions colour every experience. Your emotional reaction to what happens projects that very energy onto the very thing you are reacting to. This perception is what creates your relationship with others and your environment. Let us focus on our relationships with others and how we perceive them.

If someone continually behaves in a certain manner towards you, you form a perception of them based upon your experience with them. You come to believe them to be a certain way. This belief will manifest certain internal or external emotional reactions within yourself. Every time you react – you strengthen your belief in this perception of them and you also either energetically or actually strengthen their belief in their perception of themselves. In relationships patterns begin to form between people and these patterns once they become ingrained may reach out into other relationships as that particular energy begins to build. 

You can change what you receive from other people, by seeing beyond the surface reactions. So, how do you do this? Here I would like to note our aim is not to ‘change’ people, but to inspire the best in them to experience a more fulfilling and connected relationship. Your emotional projections and expectations have power! You can choose what image you would like to project onto the people in your life. I find it best to create these projections during meditation, when I can center my mind and place my full emotional focus upon creating the desired image, however with more awareness and personal power you can do this whilst interacting with these people. It is wise to accept situations as they occur and focus upon creating a new projection in your meditation space. If someone has a firmly ingrained emotional reaction then it will take time to change.

The idea is that you present other people with a new image of self, a new mirror, by perceiving them differently. I find that by creating the energies in meditation before relating with a specific person, I literally put energy behind me. The key to the process is really believing in what you are projecting. This appears to be easy when working with negatives, but proves difficult at times when you are continually tested with a certain behavior in another person. 

So what do you want to experience with people? 

Step One

Choose someone you would like to work with.

Step Two

Note which behavior you would most like to change in them and what instead you would like to experience through them.

Step Three

Mentally take yourself into that space where they are playing out the negative behavior. Now in this space take your attention off their behavior and into your own self. How do you feel? What is your reaction? What is your ‘behavior’ in return. Feel your emotions, honor them and accept responsibility for them. Why does their behavior produce this reaction? Can you come to understand yourself? What is happening? What thoughts, beliefs and feelings are you holding onto that is preventing you from flowing freely through this situation in acceptance? Step Four involves taking responsibility for your emotions and processing them yourself without projecting blame onto the other person and defining and colouring them in a particular light. Step Four is about beginning to change yourself as opposed to the other person. 

Step Five

Look at the other person. Look at their behavior  Ask yourself, what energy is behind that behavior? Why do they react in that way? Is it through a lack of trust, feelings of insecurity or self doubt. Self punishment through lack of self worth or do they feel ugly or undeserving. Are they lonely, disconnected or suffering some illness? Is there fear, an inability to communicate or share? Here there is no right or wrong answer as what you see is what you project and it is your projection/perception that we are wanting to change. So choose to work with the projection you see most clearly in this other person.

Step Six

Self Awareness – Do you see that energy, not the behavior, but the energy behind the behavior, in yourself? In what way does it manifest in you?

Step Seven

Decide what new energy you would like to project. This is a gift that you offer to the other person and as you create it and experience it you receive it also within yourself. So choose an energy – Self worth, receptivity, trust, surrender, peace, love, openness, forgiveness. Or choose an image and note the emotions that build the whole picture. Note here that you are not interfering with another person – you are healing your perception of them!

Step Eight.

Enter meditation and begin to visualise this person in a new light. Imagine them as this new strong person, see them experience the new emotions, imagine how they would feel, how they would act and behave. Visualise their posture, how they relate to their world and other people. Take the full force of your emotional power into this situation. If you are creating confidence, feel that confidence in yourself and project it onto the other person, seeing them in your mind as a confident strong person, imagining them taking new decisive actions and behaving in a manner that displays that confidence. Or if you want them to be more accepting, you imagine their body softening and their posture becoming open and receptive, you see them loving and embracing you, you see them in a state of acceptance and experience your reaction to this new behavior as if it were real. The Key to this is to really believe and really feel your projection. If you don’t, then see yourself believing, see your body acting as if it believes, Imagine yourself really feeling and connecting with the process and being good at it. 

Step Nine

What do you do if your negative feelings are so strong that you cannot create and expect the positive? Keep at it and work from where you are at. Honestly look at the steps you need to take in order to change yourself and experience a better relationship with this chosen other. Choose an energy you can work with. Use your emotional strengths to take you closer to the energy you would like to experience. For example in a love relationship, there may be a need to focus on forgiveness and patience before you can create romance. Or you may need to create romance in order to focus on forgiveness. You may need to focus on creating emotional release, connection and communication to create harmony and peace, But you can also create harmony and peace to create release and communication. You may need to create support, security and stability before creating freedom and pleasure. Or you may focus on Freedom and Spontaneity to encourage a belief in security. You may need to create personal space and boundaries, before creating personal power, communication and understanding. There are no set rules or emotional formula, you simply have to work from where you are at and build your new picture of self gradually. Over time your perception of self and other will change as your meditations manifest and your expectations and beliefs alter.

Step Ten

Notice the changes in your reality and take every opportunity to act in faith of that which you are creating. Your action confirms your beliefs and accelerates your manifestations. However, there is no need to rush or force the process, your patience is also an action that confirms your trust in the process.

Understanding and Creating your Reality.

Through focusing upon the reality that you would like to experience you draw that reality into your existence. Each of your thoughts holds great power and creates an emotional reaction within your body. This emotional reaction sets up a point of attraction that begins to flow into your world. Therefor how you feel is everything! When you react negatively to a situation you send out a signal that says – This is how this experience makes me feel, Then depending on how much emotion you powered into that specific situation, every time that situation comes to you, you feel the same reaction. This reaction usually promotes an equal and opposite reaction and every time it manifests, your emotional experience intensifies.

So what do you do? You take emotional responsibilty within the situation. You ACCEPT how you feel. Once you can allow yourself to feel that feeling without projecting outward blame for your chosen emotional reaction, you allow that emotion to flow through you. When you can BE with an emotion you empower yourself to make a choice. When you can make an emotional choice – You become a manifestor! You empower yourself to choose which energy you would like to channel into parts of your life.

You can apply this idea to every aspect of your life. You create your internal world all by yourself, so whatever is happening externally you can ALWAYS choose what emotion you would like to create within. So how do you choose these emotions when often they appear to arise out of nowhere? It is important to note here that your emotions are triggered by your thoughts and your thoughts, which are reactions and perceptions of reality arise from the beliefs you have formed through your life. A belief is formed through a continuation of experiences.

We must take ourselves into our beliefs and challenge them by beginning to look at our external world from a different angle. This process takes time (or so I believe – lol!) Here I will give you an example.

You have a child. Your child behaves badly. You see them whining and complaining and feeling bad. Because you beleive what you see, you may react to this situation and try to manage or control it. You may emotionally react into it. All of these choices affirm that your child is a particular way and you believe they are this way because this is what you SEE! However, what you see is upon the surface, what you see is a manifestation of your reality of your energy of your expectations and your beleifs. What is really going on here? The energy that you cannot allow to flow through yourself is manifesting in your external world. The first step is to BE with this energy, to ACCEPT it and ALLOW it to come into you and to flow through you. Allow yourself to FEEL this ENERGY, to accept this energy as part of yourself. Then, LET IT GO. Now, depending on how much resistance and personal power you have is how long this process will take.

At this point if you find it difficult to FEEL and ACCEPT this emotion, then you need to focus upon strengthening aspects of your personality that will enable you to remain fluid and peaceful within this energy. If you cannot HANDLE the emotion, your perception, your reality, your belief is this – I AM WEAK

So here you recognise that it is YOU who is WEAK who is complaining, who is whining – You dont like and resist what you see because you are not strong enough to accept what is happening, allow energy to flow and empower youself to take the action and feel the feeling that will assist your mirror in ACCEPTING and FLOWING.

Here, you are now looking to change yourself and not the other person. This other person can be a whining child, an angry lover, a selfish spouse… etc, Can you ACCEPT and BE with these energies and if not, why not? How does it feel to allow these energies to flow to you? Can you handle it? Looking at the truth of what is really happening right here, right now, is the first step towards changing it. So let us first work with ourselves. Let us begin to see ourselves differently and thus experience new emotions in those around us.

So with this in mind, when you emotionalyl react to someone else’s behaviour you can follow these steps:

Step One

How do you feel? Attempt to look at your own feelings honestly. Instead of looking at what is wrong in the other person, find the weakness in yourself that blocks you from supporting, understanding and experiencing their behaviour in peace. What feelings are you holding onto, experiencing or beleiving in yourself that are disabling you from feeling peace with this person.

Step Two

Decide which emotions you need to strengthen within yourself in order to reach an understanding within this situation with this person.

examples of personality traits (emotional energies) that may need working on:

Communication and expression – building confidence in these areas.

Self beleif – Beleiving in the validity of your feelings and words.

Self Belief – Beleiving in your ability to simply let go.

Feeling safe and secure.

Feeling loved and supported.

Removing fear of standing up for oneself.

Having the courage to face things.

Removing fear of confrontation

Accepting another and removing inner judgement to choose peace.

Recognising your own self worth, beauty, qualities.

Allowing yourself to feel, emotional release.

Being honest and open

Allowing yourself to be vulnerable.

Acceptance of self.

There are so many examples here I could go on forever. It is your job to look honestly within yourself and decide which aspect of self you need to focus on in order to move through the behaviour of the other person towards peace.

Step 3

Visualise and manifest your desired reality. Imagine your new self with the desired qualities in this situation with the other person. Take yourself into the experience and connect with it emotionally as if it were real. Imagine yourself acting out your desired emotional strengths and experiencing them with this other person. Visualise the other person being receptive, listening, understanding, being open, compassionate and kind. You really do have creative license here. It is your reality! What would you like to experience? Create it.

 

Making things work!

So what to do when things don’t go according to plan?

Everything always goes perfectly to plan in order teach everyone involved whatever they need to learn. So don’t blame anything external to yourself. Look within. If there are others involved, look deeper at them. Everyone is always trying their best with the awareness, capabilities and resources they have.

You can use your power to overthrow, squash or control others, which may get you results but if your actions don’t come from the right place it will lead to further suffering down the line. By taking responsibility for that which occurs in your life, you can learn to work with your soul lessons and thus transform your present moment and future events.

So what do you need to learn? This is going to be different for each of us at different times in different situations.

Step 1

Take full responsibility – Be aware of how you feel and take full responsibility for these feelings.

Step 2

Look at what positive emotions would build a better picture to create the outcome you desire.

Step 3

You need to have all the emotional elements in place in order for your desires to manifest. Focus on triggers that build these emotions and paint a visualisation in your mind of the desired outcome. Be aware when visualising which emotions you can connect with and feel powerfully and emotions that are weak in relation to your desired goal. This should give you a clear idea of which areas you need to work on.

Step 4 

As well as doing a full visualisation of your desired goal you can work upon visualisations that build the emotions you need to strengthen.

Continue this work and you will gain more awareness and personal power within your life lessons.
