Daily Inspiration: June 24. Feeling Free to Feel Your Feelings
Today, let us remember this: No matter how the ego’s world would insist that you act and react, it is always ok to feel, whatever it is, that you think you need to feel. Today, let us not feel encumbered by how society and those around us, tell us that we should be feeling, instead, let us recall that we have co-created our own individual journeys with God, and thus whichever way we think that we need to express and process our emotions to grow and heal, that we have the right to do so. Let us also remember that we are all One, and thus let us offer all others this same courtesy. Today, free yourself from your own judgments, from thinking that you know the proper way of how others should be feeling or how they should be reacting to their experience. Do so, and you’ll be freeing yourself of the weight and burden of having to log around your own judgments. Let us recall that the ego’s fuel source is judgment, thus it will try to put you down for not feeling good, happy, or at peace, saying to you that you feel this way because you are not wise, mature, worthy, spiritual or good enough. It does this because it wants us to believe that if we don’t feel at peace with ourselves, then obviously we must not be a part of a perfect God. If we feel unworthy of God, it is in that state of mind where the ego creeps in trying to make us feel a part of it. If we buy into the ego’s mindset, then it and its thought system gets to survive and thrive through us. When we think of ourselves in this manner, we will use the ego to protect us against a world that the ego itself has molded. In order to feel safe in such a world, we will focus our time and energy on learning the ego’s ways, and using its defense tools such as those of judgment, anger, resentment, hate and revenge. The more we focus on its tools, the more we make them real, the more real and in control our ego will appear to be. Then the less connected to God we feel, the less safe we feel, and thus the more we judge, and continue to use the ego’s tools. Today, let us not judge ourselves or others for using the ego’s tools, instead let us use this self-awareness to feel how using such tools makes us feel. Then let us notice, how these tools are making us feel. Are they or are they not, working for us? Are they or are they not, bringing us peace of mind and joy.
Today, let’s say you are feeling resentful; remember that it is perfectly fine to feel whatever and however it is that you think that you need to feel. You are a human being; having a human experience, do not judge yourself for being human, for that is what you came here to be, do, experience and share. But, also be courageous, and feel how what you are feeling, is making you feel. Then ask yourself are these feelings, aligning me with my true loving nature, or are they blocking my path to peace of mind and joy. We are not here to put ourselves or others down for feeling feelings. But, we are here to figure out which feelings we are experiencing that reflect the truth in us, so that we may share this truth with others. When it comes to judging self or another, the feeling that may best help return us to aligning with our loving nature would be that of forgiveness. Forgiveness has the ability to turn resentment into peace of mind and joy, and thus why it is a true reflection of us. Today, let us not judge illusionary thinking and feelings, instead let us thank our thoughts and emotions, for being a part of a process, that is helping us figure out and better understand who we are, and who we are not. Both figuring out who we are and who we are not, are helpful, and thus gratitude, not judgment, should be offered to them and to our past. It is important to feel whatever it is that you are feeling, in whichever way that you think you need to feel it, in order to clarify the difference between your truth and the illusionary mindset that you may be supporting. The sooner you can figure out the beliefs and emotions that are living within you, that sooner you can begin to let go of who you are not, and thus the quicker you can start becoming who you came here to be.
Today, imagine courageously processing the feeling of resentment, placing it as a complete and separate entity, next to the love that is within your heart and soul, and feel how unlike and unaligned they are to each other. Your truth is love, and Love is God Who Is All, therefore resentment, not being an expression of Love, is but an illusion of the ego, a falsity, a lie we have been programmed to believe and carry as true. After you have felt the difference between the feeling of resentment and the feeling of love, physically feel yourself making the conscious choice to hand your resentment over to God. Feel that weight physically and emotionally being lifted out of your hands and off your shoulders, feel it lifting off, up and away from you, moving higher and higher and dissolving in His Perfect Light and understanding. Then feel God filling those now freed spaces within your heart and soul where resentment once lived, with His Love for you, and for all your brothers and sisters. Keep on absorbing God’s Love, until it fills all those areas where resentment once lived, then begin to feel those areas overflowing with God’s love. Then pray for and bless with your overflowing love, all those who the ego once had you curse, blame and resent. Do this every single time that the thought of resentment tries to enter your mind. Forgive your misperception of self and others, offer all your misperceptions to God, allow His Love to fill you, and allow it to overflow unto all those that the ego once had you judge. Once you are able to do this wholeheartedly with any one of the ego’s judgments, feelings or emotions, you will be able to do this with all of them, for all of them are the same, for all of them are not real nor true.
Today, let us, no matter how much this world and those in it would judge us for them, or have us hide them, let us allow ourselves to feel our feelings. It is only what we allow ourselves to feel that we allow ourselves to heal. What we feel about self, others and this world, lives and resides within us. The feelings we house within, can either poison us or heal us. Let us no longer allow poisonous feelings to live within us unchallenged. For example, if resentment lives within, it is because we ourselves are allowing that, we are in essence allowing our own poisoning. But do not despair, for God is Love and All, thus this feeling of resentment, being in opposition to Love, must not in reality be real. Let us forgive our misperceptions, illusionary thinking, and thoughts or feelings that are not loving in nature, and hand them over to God. Let us feel these burden lifting off our shoulders and dissolving in God’s love and light. Then allow God’s love and light to fill those areas were resentment once lived. Allow yourself to overflow with God’s love and then offer this love to all those you once resented. Repeat this effort any time that resentment, or any of the ego’s thinking, tries to enter your mind.
