"Simple kindness to one's self and all that lives is the most powerful transformational force of all."
~Dr. David Hawkins
When you are kind to yourself and others, you connect with the energy of the universe in a way that has the power to change yourself and others. Essentially, you open yourself up to the possibility of what you and they can become. The kindness denotes acceptance of yourself and others on a spiritual level. Even if you (or they) are not the way you would like to be yet, being kind to youself sends the universe the message that "I deserve." And when you believe that you deserve good things, you can make them happen.
This week: Practice being kind to yourself. Stop yourself from those overly critical thoughts. They are not helpful. Acknowledge that even though you may not be where you want to be, you are capable and deserving of having the life you want. Acknowledge and appreciate the things you do. Practice being kind to others. Reach out to people you know and to complete strangers. Talk to that person in line at the grocery store. Smile. Call someone you haven't talked to in a while. Let people know what you appreciate about them. Cherish other living things. Observe and be at ease with animals. Appreciate plants. Notice the feelings you have about doing these things. Notic the transformation that these action begin to bring. That is what it is all about.
