Everyone needs to be reminded of their true self.
Have you heard people say that everyone needs uplifting at some point and time? The idea behind this statement is clear: We all feel down every once in a while. However, there is a little contradiction to be worked out. The statement implies that you are uplifted by someone, or something else outside of you. Please be sure that God (the Universe, Infinite Being, etc.) would never create something and place its happiness outside of itself. Now, let’s rephrase that statement a little. Everyone needs to be reminded of their true self at some point and time.
Here is a little caveat. What you are about to read is not some fluffed up mumbo jumbo to make you feel good about yourself. Instead, this is the truth about yourself. When you go through these descriptions you will feel deep down in your heart the truth these words carry. Don’t be surprised if you get emotional when you read about yourself. That is just the signal of self-recognition. Daily hassles take you away from your true self and get your attention tied up in an endless succession of events, problems, challenges, etc. Even though your true self may not get the attention it deserves, it never disappears. It’s always there as soon as you turn to it.
Now let’s see who you are:
You are victorious. There hasn’t been anything in your life yet that you haven’t overcome. Think back to some major problems in the past that seemed unsolvable at the time and caused you plenty of worry. And yet, they worked out because you are still here and now, reading this article. Remember that God only gives as many challenges as you are able to handle and not one iota more.
You are courageous. The notion a lot of people carry that they don’t have courage is nothing but a thought. Remove that thought and what remains is courage! Need more proof of your courage? You have made it thus far in life, haven’t you? Surely, you have faced difficult situations. Surely, you have made tough decisions. You have persevered. That’s courage! In fact, you can feel courage shining inside your heart like a bright star right now. Don’t you?
You are kind. Kindness has many different forms of expression. Undoubtedly, you have performed many acts of kindness in your life. You can think of some of those right now! How do I know? You are a human and kindness is your inherent nature.
You are not your problems. Never identify yourself with your problems. Problems come and go while you always remain. Hasn’t this been your own experience? Realize this and your problems will lose their grip on you.
You are whole. Despite popular culture, society, TV commercials and everything else trying to convince you that you are missing something to make you whole and complete, shatter those ideas to pieces! There is nothing and no one in the world that can make you whole and complete, because you ARE already whole and complete. Let go of all thoughts of comparison, competition, lack and what remains? You remain, whole and complete.
You are limitless. You truly are! All the perceived limits are but limiting thoughts. Deep down, in your heart of hearts, where no limiting thoughts reach, you know yourself to be limitless. Close your eyes now and reach straight to the center of your heart. Do you feel any limits?
You are unbreakable. Now you need to read the following statements in the first person to feel their true power. I’d even suggest reading them aloud with all the enthusiasm and energy you have.
“Go ahead, life, bring it on! I am unbreakable. Not what I imagine myself to be, but the real I, the victorious I, the courageous I, the kind I, the whole I, the limitless I—I am truly unbreakable! I am not afraid of any thoughts because all the fears are only thoughts. Because I accept with grace anything that comes my way, nothing can hurt me, nothing can break me. My power is love, I am love itself and nothing can break love. So, go ahead, life! Bring it on!”
