We often seek validation in those shadow places, within, where we were once injured. Many of us feel that in order to heal the damage that we've taken on, someone else has to see it and love it, because in the past perhaps we were mistreated, abused, belittled, or neglected.
Just for a moment, ask yourself, "Rather than looking for someone outside myself to heal, to feel loved, or to feel accepted...what if I turn my energy inward where the truth already resides?" I'm here to tell you that Truth resides within you and YOU inhabit the source of abundant unconditional love, that knows you and sees you.
Remember that we are often insulted and harmed in the places where our greatest gifts, strengths, and abilities lie. Someone I love very much told me I should only be insulted or hurt by something someone said about me IF I believed it was true. That statement stopped me in my tracks. I held on to that and began looking deeper within and decided that the nasty things that were said to and about me were not true at all. It was a moment in time that altered my paradigm.
Spirit encourages that rather than hide your truth and self-worth or be confused by it because it was injured - allow it to rise up in you even stronger than ever, so that the Truth is set free, rather than silenced because someone else was threatened, jealous, or afraid of your power and your expression.
If we do not work on our inner-selves the pattern will continue if we hold on to focusing on others' transgressions and mistakes, and expect flattery or validation to heal us. Those voices come and go, so do the voices of insult. It is up to us to stand in our center, to own our own power, truth, inner-beauty, and strength regardless of outside opinion.
During this transformational time of our evolution as spiritual beings, we have nothing to lose anymore - but to get rid of the veils, obstacles, and afflictions that have come from outside of our true selves. It is time to let go of that which binds us to injuries.
Perhaps we have attracted the harm to ourselves to know the human condition and to understand where change is needed most, in order to change the game of old paradigms and to overcome the energy of lower forces of cruelty, ignorance and deceit.
Be guided by Spirit that lives within you, not the voices of humans who haven't woken up to their own Divine nature. If they don't know it is within them, they can't see it in you. Don't give others the power to blind you of yourself. See it in yourself.
It is never too late to recover your treasure, your truth, that lives within you.
I walk beside you in the light,
