Daily Inspiration: March 29. Learning to Listen to Ourselves
How many times have we complained about others not listening to us? Let us today recall that we are all One, and thus the outer world is simply reflecting our internal beliefs and condition. “Others out there” are simply reflecting our internal condition, the beliefs we hold about the world we think we see. When not feeling listened to, ask yourself, how many times have you not gifted yourself the time to listen to what you were trying to tell yourself? Anytime we are experiencing any type of judgmental behavior towards self or others, being negative, hurtful, angry, stressed out, or worried, there is something about ourselves, that we are not listening to, that is asking to be heard, helped, and healed. If you do not listen to those parts of you that are struggling or in pain, then that pain will begin to grow, louder and louder, until you finally stop and listen to, what it is you are trying to tell yourself. The unconscious pain that is within you will overflow, and this overflowing or projection will begin to affect those around you. Thus, if you are looking at “others” and seeing them with something other than love, then that “seeing”, your internal condition and belief, is separating from the state of love. This separation from your natural state, is not due to them or their actions, but of how you have trained yourself to view and interpret them and their actions. The true call for healing is never really “out there,” it is within you, in your perceptions, in how you view the world. Heal your misperceptions, all the ways that you are viewing and interacting with this world that are not through love, and you will begin to see and experience a more loving world. Then continue to do this until love or the call for love is all you see. Continue to do so until love becomes your response to love, and love becomes your response to a call for love. Love is your natural state and true home, thus you desire to be aligned with the state of love, and so anytime you find yourself not in that space, then know that there is something you are trying to tell yourself, that you are not yet listening to, that there is something within you that needs to be heard, helped and healed.
Today, let us pay very close attention to how we are treating ourselves, because this will send a signal to others, on how they are to treat us. Others simply take cues on how to treat you, by how you treat yourself. How you are, consciously or unconsciously treating yourself, will open the door to how you will allow others to treat you. Thus, if you feel like others are not listening to you, be assure that somewhere in your life, you are not listening to yourself. If you are not listening to yourself, then the world, which is here to help you heal and awaken, will physically manifest in a form that will be an expression of how you are treating yourself, your internal condition, so that you may better see what is separating you from who you desire to be. And so you see, others are not listening to you, not because they don’t know how, but because they are showing you that you are not listening to yourself. The more time you take to practice and honor what you yourself are trying to tell yourself, the more “others” will treat you in the same manner. The sooner you get to that wound within, that is in need of being heard, helped and healed, the sooner that wound will begin to heal, and you will once again find a place of self-love, balance, and peace. When others see that you have heard, and thus healed yourself, they will desire to listen to you, because they too desire to experience the healed state. It is in this healed state, when you communicate from a place of love, balance and peace, that others will naturally want to pay attention and listen to. They will want to listen to what you have to say, because the state of mind that you are in, they themselves, desire to experience.
Today, when we see, feel or experience, any emotional pain “out there,” we will recall that this physical expression is really an inner call for help and healing. Let us today react to this “outer pain” not with judgment, as the ego has programmed us to do, but with gratitude, because now we know that it is simply a symbolic representation of an internal condition, and it is by knowing this, that we can begin to focus within, help ourselves and heal. Today, when we experience any kind of emotional distress in the physical world, let us not blame some outer circumstance or curse other beings, instead remembering that this is just a symbolic representation of our inner beliefs and condition, we will take some extra moments to go within, and truly listen to what it is that we are trying to tell ourselves. Today, let us realize, that anytime we are not being loving towards ourselves or others, that is simply a signal that we are not listening to, and at peace with, ourselves. Also, when we are being judgmental of self or others, negative, hurtful, angry, stressed out or worried, let us no longer put ourselves down for being unkind, instead let us use such reactions to trigger in us, the need to look within, listen to what its is we are trying to say to ourselves, and heal the inner self. Now, let us use those unloving thoughts and emotions, to stop us on our tracks, and remind us that it is time to pay attention to ourselves. Today, before every interaction, let us ask ourselves: “How can I shift my internal dialogue, in order to come from a place of love, balance and peace, so that others may truly want to listen to what I have to say.” When we come from a place of love, balance and peace, let this symbolize to us, that we have listened to ourselves, are now healed, and are offering this opportunity for healing to others.
Today, let us recall that we are all One, and so no matter what you think you see or hear “out there,” it is simply a physical reflection and representation of your internal condition. If your internal condition is anything other than joyous, at peace and loving, you will see and experience external confusion, conflict and chaos. This external confusion, conflict and chaos, always tells you the same thing, that some false belief within you, remains to be listened to and healed. Where have you chosen not to forgive yourself or another? Where are you buying into the ego’s false fear based concepts as more real than the Love that God has for you? Why are you choosing to believe in your worries and anxiety over trusting in God’s perfect plan? These are some of the areas within yourself, that you may have yet not listen to and healed. It is this unhealed inner state and mindset, that produces and projects a confused, conflicted and chaotic world. When you learn to go within, listen to, help and heal the unhealed mind, you will align with your sacred loving nature, and once you do, there will be very few beings, who will not want to listen to, what you have to say.
