I offered my guided imagery meditation “Breathe in Peace” as a free download on the Self-Help Giveaway that Dr. Joe Rubino is running, and got some interesting feedback on it.
In the meditation I say, “…This is your time, now, to take care of yourself, to be gentle with yourself, to give yourself patience and compassion, to give yourself the peace and safety that lies deep within your heart…”
One woman wrote to me, that she found herself in tears listening to that – trying to remember that last time that she put aside all her responsibilities and taking care of everyone around her and took time to be gentle and patient and compassionate with herself.
We are so hard on ourselves. Most of us find it so much easier to show patience and compassion to others than to our own sweet selves. We have this sense of urgency, of pushing and pushing to get everything done, and then maybe we can take a break and relax.
One of my favorite quotes from Abraham is “You’ll never get it done. You cannot get it wrong. So don’t you think it’s time for you to lighten up and start having more fun with all of this, and accept that you are Eternal Beings? And since you are Eternal Beings, then there’s no point in rushing, because there’s never going to be a time when you don’t exist.” (Learn more at Abraham-Hicks.com )
Today is Father’s Day in the US. Are you are a father in any sense of the word, either biological, step-father, adoptive, mentor, or just a loving man who contributes in some way to the growth and support of a younger person? Whether you are or not, I invite you to take some time today to take care of yourself, to be gentle with yourself, to give yourself patience and compassion, to give yourself the peace and safety that lies deep within your heart…
Yours in Peace, Carol
