I spent the weekend pondering on what topic to write about. I kept picking up my computer and then just putting it down. I ask for guidance and the word that kept popping up in my head was “Acceptance”.
Michelle and I filmed Video 4 in our Clairvoyant Living Series this weekend (watch for the post) and while we were preparing to film, we started talking and lo and behold the discussion of acceptance came up, there too.
Now acceptance is a really big word. When you hear the word what do you think of?
Do you think of accepting others, acceptance of gifts, compliments and possibly acceptance of another’s point of view. How many think of you think of it, in relation to ones self???
Let me start at the beginning…
For many of us our collective purpose is that of growth and healing. We seek guidance and advice, spend much of our life contemplating what we learn and reveal about ourselves. All this in the search for enlightenment. We see our faults and set out to change or correct them. We become focused on becoming a “better” person. We embark on a journey of change and dissection.
We dissect our personalities, categorizing our faults and our attributes into sections to be evaluated. Many times we will see areas that need to be enhances, supported or tamed down. Sometimes we even find things we don’t want to find. These things, these character flaws or errors of omissions we try to look over and not shed any real light on, are there. We think we should fix them…find out why we do what we do, why they are there. We try to unearth the wrong in our life that created this bleep in our path. We struggle with the dark that we find and try to overcompensate with extra good.
All this is part of the process that each one us encounter along our path of personal growth…or personal enlightenment. Many will spend their entire life trying to correct or fix things that they uncover that they feel do not meet the criteria of being the person they think they should be.
So…acceptance…where am I going with this? There comes a point in all of our lives that we need to stop what we are doing and accept who we are. All of who we are. Accept the beauty that is you.
Acceptance does not mean we are no longer working on improvement… rather it allows us the permission to be who we are. When we can love the person we are today in this very moment, this moment is the moment that true change and growth can actual begin to happen. Accepting ourselves our beauty, our faults, this is the biggest step forward we can ever take.
When we stop comparing ourselves to someone else or some other ideal and accept who we are and where we have been, then we can really look at the things we have not liked to look at. Look at them with a clearer view of what those attributes and traits were put into place for. Were they for survival? Wer they for defense, was put into place to prevent us from making a mistake we made once before in our past (current or past life)? We cannot change what was or has already been done…we can however look at the situation or experiences for what they were, the purpose… and know that this trait or attribute no longer serves us. We can then accept the past for what it was… knowing full well that it has helped to create the person you are today. Move forward with love and acceptance of yourself, this will enable you to let go of that which no longer fits your plan or your path. Sometimes experience is the best lesson in life…we learn from that which we personally experience and walk through. The key is knowing when and what you can let go of and leave behind you going forward.
Acceptance…is the key to love…unconditional love. To have it and to give it you must take the first step in accepting yourself.
Granted I could have thought the complete opposite given my sleepless night. From 11:40pm till 4:40am I was up every hour on the hour last night. Awakening with a sense of completion. I would feel refreshed and ready to start my day. Only after looking at the time would become tired once again and gratefully drift back to sleep. I would also go right back to the same dream I was having.
When 4:40 came I was ready for the day, however by this time I was also very tired and confused by my spirits eager anticipation for its arrival.
It wasn’t until I was backing out of my driveway at 6:40 (interesting time patter here) that I noticed the Moon in its full beautiful glory shining ever so brightly to the west just above the mountains.
I actually stopped at the bottom of my driveway. I was so enthralled with its beauty instead of heading east (like I would normally) I used the west exit of our subdivision, just so I could enjoy the moon for a minute or so more.
Today is the full moon. Cancer Full Moon: Fri. Dec. 28, 2012,
Sun 7.06 Capricorn, Moon 7.06 Cancer
This is the 13th moon of 2012, a rare and cool event. A morning I was definitely not suppose to miss. A day of celebration of all the work that has been accomplished this year.
This is the cold winter moon of December and I will tell you…It was cold this morning!
This moon prompts us to take a look at one what we started with the new moon and make sure we are still on the right path, as well as, realize our highest truth and drop all that is no longer serving us. We may be prompted to re-evaluate our relationships with others as well as our self. Look at where we are spending our time, and find balance. This time of year it can be hard to not lose sight on our goals as it can be chaotic and hectic at the very least. It is important to take some time alone, in your room, to be still and allow the breath to flow through you.
This morning, the instant I saw the moon, I was connected. I felt as though I was drawn to it, part of it. This feeling of being on the right path overwhelmed me. I felt as though I had passed one very important soul test. I was moving forward towards a new beginning, a new tomorrow with my eyes wide open and my heart ready for action.
We all are really. We have been working hard this year and this moon also symbolize the ending of what was and what no longer is.
I have spent a lot of time this past year working on my Heart Chakra, self acceptance, and understanding the patterns and choices in my life. Today I feel secure that this work has not been done in vain. It was needed for this next phase.
The emotions that keep floating to the service right now are ones of gratitude…deep fullfuling GRATITUDE.
Thank you Mr. Moon.
