When you love yourself you become a shining example for others. Through the Law of Attraction, you attract to you people that love themselves as well. Without doing the work of loving yourself, you will most likely attract those opposite of love, and that is a recipe for rocky relationships. To love yourself involves breaking through programming in order to realize who you truly are.
The societal programming that defines what we think of ourselves begins right out of the womb when we are rudely introduced to this world in birth. The separation from our mothers as we are weighed, cleaned up, poked, and prodded is the beginning of the illusion, along with the veil of forgetfulness of who we are and why we came here.
The programming children receive in school revolves around obedience and memorization of created propaganda and lies that are nothing less than mind control. Children are kept in school all day sitting idle in classrooms learning things that are left brained and for the most part non creative. At lunch they are fed GMO’s to insure they do not wake up the lies they are being told. In today’s world usually both of their parents are at work all day and when all converge in the evening everyone is tired and overwhelmed by external stimulation to the point of wanting to relax in front of one of the many televisions in the home. This sets up the stage for the most vicious programming of all.
The television can be called the mind controlling machine. It is designed to tell us what to think, what to wear, what to eat, and what unnecessary material items to buy. Ironically if most of us eat what we see on television, we won’t look like the people we try to model ourselves after, and we won’t be able to wear those clothes we saw either. Almost everything about television is meant to steer us away from love into self hatred due to societal pressure. We never feel like we are good enough as compared to the latest trending Hollywood actors. The actors and models on television compromise less that 1% of the seven billion plus humans on the planet. Have you had a look around lately? How many people around you actually look like the people on television?
The list of programming goes on and on including the illusion of money and religion. However all of this can be changed by taking the first step in de-programming yourself , and loving yourself is a great way to get the ball rolling.
Why should you love yourself?
Once you realize that you are a spirit being having a human experience and you learn to go within to feel the existence of your soul, you also realize that you are a spark of the Creator of “All that Is”. So in essence, you are part of All that Is. The Creator vibrates at a high frequency of love. Therefore, you are love. An important part of ascension involves re-connecting the bond with our Creator in remembrance of being a part of love itself.
We are all connected to our creator through a pillar of light that runs vertically through our chakras. Some call it the “hara line”. From our crown chakra “upward” it connects our soul to our monad to our creator (and possibly beyond!). The flow of energy through our hara line down through our body connects us to Earth. The terms upward and down are linear terms we use to describe something visually, however this connection is actually inward and all encompassing.
In part three of this series, “Going Within”, we touched on how to still yourself in meditation in order to connect with your higher self. With practice you can begin to get to that place rather quickly and then you can take it one step further by taking your consciousness upward or inward along the hara line, exploring and connecting with the connections to the pieces and parts of you that are awaiting a reunion. We will touch on this reunion in the next part of this series- “Healing”. You can also further reach your monad and your creator through practice. Many enjoy deep mediations that re-connect with our Creator and even have conversations and visual experiences, however each connection you make will be unique so remember to not have any expectations.
The greatest secret of the human body lies in its merkaba energy field, which is called the “chariot of light”. When spun with intention and clearing, it creates a vortex through which you can travel in your light body.
The following is an excerpt from the above referenced In5d article, “Drunvalo Melkizedek- The Teaching of the MER-KA-BA:
|“There is also a tube that runs through the center of the body, connecting the apexes of the star tetrahedral field.Before we fell in consciousness I3,000 years ago, we breathed prana through this tube. Prana simultaneously comes in from the top and passes through the pineal gland, and enters from the bottom, meeting in one of the chakras. Remembering how to breathe through this tube, combined with rotating the fields around the body, produces the merkaba, a vehicle of ascension.There are actually three star tetrahedral fields superimposed over each other around the body. One is the physical body, one is the mental body, and the third is the emotional body. This is literally so. The fields are rotated by linking together the mind, the emotions, and the physical body. The mental field spins to the left, the emotional field to the right, and the field for the body remains stationary. When these fields are rotated at very specific speeds and in a certain way, a disk pops out at the base of the spine for fifty-five to sixty feet and a sphere appears. It looks like a flying saucer.This field is known as the merkaba. It is the original creation pattern of the universe on all levels of existence. It is how we got here and it is how we will leave.The word “Mer” means counter-rotating fields of light; “Ka” spirit; and “Ba” is body or reality. So the Mer-Ka-Ba is a counter-rotating field of light that takes both body and spirit with it. Once you know how to activate these fields you can use your merkaba to travel throughout the universe.”
How could you not love your body knowing that it was designed to be an inter-dimensional vehicle and that you are always connected to source? Have you looked into the mirror lately and loved what you saw? Inevitable there is usually one if not more feature of ourselves that we would like to change. It is your programmed beliefs that would have you think you are less than perfect. Love is perfection.
There is an episode of the television show “The Twilight Zone” (yes, irony here), about a woman under the care of a doctor in a hospital setting. Her whole face is bandaged up and she longs for the day to remove her bandages and re-integrate into society- being able to go outside and be a normal person again. Apparently she had been undergoing several treatments of experimental plastic surgery. The doctor and all of the nurses do not show their faces in the beginning of the show, all we can see is the back of their heads. Toward the end of the show, her bandages are finally removed and she looks like one of those 1960’s Hollywood bombshells. We finally get a look at the doctor and all of the nurses, and they all have huge pig noses! The majority consensus had her believing that she was different and ugly; however it was all just a societal point of view.
Loving yourself means recognizing that you are perfect just the way you are. Having gratitude for being able to exist in your human body, no matter what beliefs you have about it, is the highest form of loving yourself that you can display.
How do I love myself?
Loving yourself can be as unique as you would like for it to be. However, for those of us who need a little boost toward loving ourselves, a great way to start is to gaze into the mirror. This practice may bring up other thoughts or visions in your head at first, and you may even see parts of you that you hadn’t seen before. While gazing in the mirror, smiling at yourself will instantly transform thoughts about yourself into a higher vibration of love. Looking at ourselves in the mirror may sound simple, but actually it may be one of our biggest fears and could take some time to erase our mental programming attached to it.
You can also love yourself by forgiving yourself. Let’s say you put yourself on a diet because of the idea you had that you needed to lose weight. Then you cheated on yourself and had a couple of slices of chocolate cake. If you do not forgive yourself of that action, you will carry that energy with you. Energy such as non forgiveness can cause blockages and interrupts the flow of our divine presence of who we are. This becomes a pattern of behavior that is the root of separation from who we are.
Doing something that excites you is a perfect way of loving yourself. It moves your vibrational frequency to one of your true self. In being the frequency of your true self, you will begin to attract to yourself what you need in order to recognize and transmute anything standing in your way of being love. In the frequency of loving yourself, synchronization occurs which not only gives you confirmation that you are in the vibration of your true self, but also opens the doors to continual situations of things that excite you. In essence you have created a new pattern of love in your DNA, and transmuted the old pattern of false belief. These old patterns will begin to seem illogical. Recognizing these old patterns and letting them go allows for the transformation of our DNA which is part of ascension.
Eating healthy and organic is a perfect way to treat your body as your temple. If you are someone that has a long history of bad eating habits, this will take gradual change. Rome wasn’t built in a day, and diet is one of the hardest things to tackle in today’s society of fast food corporatism. However, you are worth it, and when you begin to change things one item at a time, you not only feel better physically but you will begin to feel the mental fog dissipate which will help you to keep stepping forward with making better food choices.
Another great way to love yourself would be to get a massage or to have another form of energy work to balance your system such as acupuncture. Exercise also tells your body that you love it and you want to keep it moving forward. No matter what physical state you see yourself in, there is always a base line exercise that can be performed to make yourself feel better.
What should I expect from loving myself?
You should really pay attention to your co-created illusion around you when you begin to love yourself. The doorway will begin to open to synchronicities and miracles that will confirm that you are on the right path. Doing things that excite you will raise your vibration even further and new opportunities begin to appear seemingly out of nowhere. By loving yourself, in essence you are giving the Universe permission to bring you the tools and resources necessary for ascension.
Being in balance with your true vibration also allows you to trust yourself further. This allows you to trust what you are receiving when you go within, which allows you to break the programming of society. Breaking the programming of society also allows for you to go deeper within in order to find the truth. A new pattern of unity is created when you love yourself. This is a fine example of re-programming your DNA. Only when we love ourselves can we truly begin to love others, and the more we love ourselves, the more we can love others. To change the world, we all need to take responsibility for loving ourselves. We are all connected, therefore to love ourselves means to open the doorway for others to experience love as well.
