The No. 1 Reason to Treat Yourself With Grace

What would you do if I told you that the care and feeding of you were no different than the care and feeding of the Divine? If you accepted this truth, how would it shift the way you live?

When I see you, I see nothing but divine brilliance. You are a direct extension of source energy in this reality; everything you say and do, to and for yourself, you are also saying and doing to the Divine. Would you tell God it was 20 pounds overweight? Would you tell the Divine it was terrible at picking a life partner? Would you beat up the Divine for not doing a better job at parenting?

The answer is no. You wouldn't. So why do you say it to yourself?

Your ability to see yourself as a divine embodiment shifts everything at the deepest level. It expands your vibration exponentially. What you vibrate out is what the universe echoes back to you in every moment.

You've related to yourself as everything other than your deepest truth. As a result, you've lost sight of the importance of self-respect and self-care.

Each morning when you wake up, recognize that each time you catch your reflection you're looking at the Divine. Allow every thought word and deed to originate from a place of conscious acknowledgement of this truth. Last but not least, make one conscious choice that respects you and makes you feel great.

When you source your reality from these truths, your entire reality shifts. You begin to choose naturally the highest outcomes for yourself. From what you eat, to what you watch, to the company you keep. This greater perception of divinity leads you into the lives of individuals who can support you, and solutions will arise from the most unlikely places.

Above all else, you will begin to love the person you see in the mirror every day. The false perception of victimhood will fall away, and the victorious nature of life and living will become your new way of operating in the world.

Allow these words to become your new mantra-
"I love, honor and respect myself through all my thoughts, words and deeds. I am worthy of my own grace."

You are the source of your fulfillment. When I see you, I see nothing but divine brilliance. My greatest wish is that you see it as well.
