Daily Inspiration: December 16. Punish Yourself No Longer for Being Human

Judge yourself no longer for having and expressing “negative” emotions; judge yourself no longer for being human. Negative emotions are simply part of the human growth, healing and awakening experience, and thus to deny them, is to deny and not be respectful of parts of yourself. When you are not being respectful of your whole self, because we are all One, you are not being respectful of God and of the sacred journey that you have co-created with Him. We will never find true peace of mind and joy as long as we do not learn to respect our whole self, and where each and every part of the whole self is in recognizing its divinity. You cannot live an abundant, fulfilled and joyful life, when you are constantly denying or not respecting parts of yourself. We have been taught by the ego to judge ourselves as bad, not worthy or spiritual enough, for having had or expressed negative emotions. But what true everlasting peace of mind or joy has following the ego’s teachings ever brought to us? Is it not time to stop punishing ourselves for simply being human? All we need ever remember is this: God uses all, even and especially our most difficult times, for good, and thus even our negative emotions will serve a greater good and a higher purpose, and that is why we have brought them into our experience, to overcome our illusionary thinking, and become an example to others that they too can overcome. When we learn to respect our whole experience, we learn to respect our whole self. It is then that our need for judging self and others, will begin to dissolve. It is actually your negative judgments, by experiencing them over and over again, that are teaching you that they are offering you nothing you truly want or need. Thus, today let us offer our so-called negative feelings and emotions gratitude, and by doing so, acknowledging them as equally important steps on our sacred path.

Imagine if, that what you have been programmed by the ego to believe are some of the so-called worst aspects of you or your experience, are simply here to help you heal and awaken to your true nature. Imagine, the great blessings that your own healing and awakening will one day offer all those who still hurt because they are asleep to who in truth they are. If you can begin to realize the blessing and usefulness that even these so-called negative emotions, unaware parts of you, can offer you and this world, will you not be able to see all the so-called un-awaken parts of you in this same manner. If you can begin to awaken to the fact that each and every part of you, no matter how negative the ego might have programmed you to define them as, is really here to help you grow, heal and awaken, but not only you, but also others through you, would you not begin to see the blessing that your whole self and experience, is providing us? Would this knowledge and understanding not bring clarity to your mind, peace to your heart, and gratitude to your soul? Imagine, if you could begin to shift your perception so that when you experience negative emotions, instead of putting yourself or others down for them, you simply understood them as steps along your perfect and sacred path, would a sense of clarity, peace, gratitude and purpose not begin to fill more of your time here on Earth? Would you not begin to experience a kind of Heaven on Earth, if you started to truly see and understand the blessing that each and every step along the path that you have co-created with God truly is? My dear friend, God uses all for good, remember and trust this, and receive the peace of mind and joy that as His creations, is yours to forever have, experience, share and enjoy.

Today, let us not judge or invalidate our negative feelings or emotions; instead let us see them as our own internal compass, a guidance system that is showing us where we are supporting the ego’s illusionary programming as more real than the understanding of the sacred path that we have co-created with God. Today, let us not run away or try to hide from our negative feelings or emotions, for as we begin to awaken, we will no longer need to hide from the monsters in our dreams. Today, let us look at our negative feelings and emotions through God’s eyes, with wisdom, mercy and grace, and instead of judging them and ourselves, let us thank them for playing an important part in our awakening process. What a gift it truly is to be able to consciously let go of our belief and support of the ego’s mindset, and of our unconscious lack of trust in an all-loving God. Let us make today the conscious choice to no longer punish ourselves with our own thoughts. Today, let us be grateful that our negative thoughts are coming out of the dark illusionary crevasse within our minds, and into emotional and physical forms, through our words and actions, so that we may see them for what they truly are, not real, not us. Now what was once a hidden virus that kept us feeling sick and separated from our brothers, sisters, and God, has now surface, and in the light it can now be dealt with, understood, forgiven, healed and released. This is the gift that we are offering ourselves, because we now have the courage to feel and look at every part of us and our journey, with love, mercy and grace. Our negative feelings and emotions, now met with our greater self-awareness and acceptance of our whole self, will begin to dissolve before our light and understanding. As the idea of negativity begins to dissolve from our minds and dreams, we will begin to awaken, and as we awaken, we will start to see and understand the gift that every one of our experiences had and has to offer us and the world.

Today, anytime that you find yourself beginning to judge yourself as less than, bad, negative, or not spiritual enough, first make the conscious choice to remember that you have control over your thoughts, and that your thoughts should not be controlling you. Second, remember where the ego’s mindset has taken you a thousand times before, no where that you desire to go. Third, remind yourself that every single step of your journey, is a sacred co-creation with God, and because of this, everything that we are experiencing, always serves a higher purpose. Fourth, remind yourself that each one of our steps along our sacred path will be use by God, in one way or another, for good, for our growth, healing and awakening. Fifth, practice taking and trusting the first four steps until a sense of trust, peace and gratitude begin to rein over you and your day.

Daily Inspiration with James Blanchard Cisneros

    You are amazing Mr Cisneros / James 🙂
    THANK YOU VERY MUCH for your daily reminders which I have been receiving since the beginning of this year – I don’t know how you got to my email address but I am immensely grateful you did.
    I have had very challenging year and your messages gave me so so much encouragement and help with remaining strong in difficult situations (well at least how I perceived these at the time of happening).
    I wish you keep going with your enlightened ‘mission’ and keep spreading your words of wisdom continuously day by day over and over again thus assisting us (people hungry for such a reminder) with discovering our true-selves, healthy potential and living our lives the best we can.
    Have a fantastic jolly Christmas and very successful new year!
    I look forwards to receiving your ‘high vibes’ in 2017 🙂
    Cheers, Miriam

      Thank you Miriam for your very kind words and for being open to the message. It is my honor that these messages have assisted you on your journey, through them, may you be of equal assistance to others. Every day, every moment, we, thanks to free will, can choose what thoughts we think, what thoughts we place our time, energy and focus on. Focus on thoughts that are filled with forgiveness, compassion, kindness, joy and peace, and it will be these energies that will fill up your day and life. Focus on judgments of self and others, anger, resentment, anxiousness, hate and revenge, and that will be what you experience throughout your day and life. Thankfully, it is we who have final say over the thoughts we think. Make the conscious decision to choose forgiving thoughts over judgment filled thoughts, trust in God instead of worry, offer peace to all others instead of pain, and you’ll be living your life in alignment with God, with Love, with Light. You are, and forever will, be as God created you, and we are all One. All glory to God. Peace. JBC

        Hi James,
        I have submitted my today’s (15 June 2018) comment few minutes ago and ticked the box about notification of follow-up comments, then – only just now read as found! – your comment to my message from the end of year 2016 (ha-ha) – and there is (I guess) the answer to my today’s enquiry = Trust God’s plans and The peace of mind shall follow 🙂
        Thank you very much again and again!

          Thank you Miriam for being open to the message. Each and every day, consciously move your thoughts in Love’s direction. Do not accept un-loving thoughts of self or others as true, do not invest your time and thus life in something that has no true value. You are God’s child, here to create as your Source creates, through love. When an un-loving thought tries to polite your mind, forgive it, forgive yourself and others, then return Home to peace, to a conscious alignment with your All-Loving Source, and then share your light and understanding with all who God sends your way. Peace. JBC

    I wish we all act on our growing AWARENESS of love & peace as our natural state and share / spread this BLESSING between each other 🙂
    Love, Miriam
