It has been a rough week or so emotionally. I have felt so totally out of alignment, off course, and filled with all sorts of painful emotions. Grief. Anger. Sadness. Pain. Along with a slew of angry thoughts. Everything is stewing together, bordering on depression. I keep heart-tapping, keep sending the love, so I think the energy and consciousness of love is pushing a lot of stuff up and out of my system.
If I am feeling stuff it means it’s working.
All of it stems from what I have been through in the past 10 years. It has been a real rough ride for the most part. Facing difficult decisions, going through divorce, going through nightmarish challenges as a parent, all have left me with a truly broken but deeply open heart.
So this post, I want to offer a simple intention of the heart:
It is my intention to love myself unconditionally for everything I have been through and for everything I am going through.
The truth is, I have been through hell and I am still kicking, still breathing, still growing, and still loving. It is so easy to revert to the default of self-hatred, self-abuse, and self-criticism when I go through stuff — and it’s much harder to turn and love myself for all of it.
So here is how I do it:
While tapping the center of my chest with an open hand, I repeat the above statement three times. Then I proceed to live out the intention. I do my best to cultivate positive, supporting, and loving self-talk. Tell myself it’s all okay, and will be okay. Tell myself that I’m a good dad, a good person, and that I am doing the very best I can.
So how about you?
Are you willing to love yourself for everything you have been through?
Are you willing to give yourself the inner support you need the most?
