Honor Thyself


You have come so far

And gathered much knowledge.

You are not the same person

You were yesterday.

And you will not be the same


You are in constant flux,

Opening, growing, remembering.

Dear One, it is time to stop the self-judgment and to celebrate how far you have come. You have faced many challenges on the way. And you have learned from those challenges, how to be and how not to be. You have loved and have been loved by many. And you have affected the lives of all who have crossed your path. You are a wonder and a gift to this world and beyond.

Self-judgment and criticism have become a habit for so many of you. There is an image of perfection which you seek which has misguided you along your path. Understand, Dear One, that while you are connected to the All That Is, you are also unique. Unique in your personality and in your gifts.

Comparing yourself to others is taking a path towards self-loathing and indecision. Can you not accept the uniqueness of who you are? Your perceived flaws, pointed out by others or by yourself, are truly gifts in disguise. But like all gifts, using them in moderation is key.

Those aspects of your personality which may have been criticized are truly strengths in many situations. Stubbornness, assertiveness or procrastination can be most helpful when used in moderation. Upon reflection, you will see how these traits which you and others have considered flaws have pulled you or others through difficult times.

Dear One, can you accept the uniqueness of who you are without doubt or judgment? Can you accept that discovering how to balance these gifts is part of the learning curve? And can you believe that they are precious tools to be used in a purposeful life?

If you had nothing to learn, you would not be here upon this plane. In fact, you would not be in existence. For life, be it here or in another realm, is a constant process of self-discovery. And not only do you share your experiences and knowledge with others. You also receive the knowledge from others gained through their own experiences.

Have you not observed another and told yourself that is not behavior which you wish to mimic? In moving through their own lessons, they have taught you as well. And should you be involved in the lessons of others can you give gratitude rather than blame for what you have experienced?

Be observant without criticism or judgment and learn from what you see in the lives of others. Forgive those dark secrets in yourself and in others. For all struggle with their own challenges. And receiving love and support rather than fear and judgment will help you raise each other up.

Before you judge another, reflect on your own life and how you may have done the same in years past. Before you judge yourself, give gratitude for the opportunity to learn and grow. For, Dear One, often the only way to knowledge is through the dense forests of struggle and darkness.

Forgive yourself and others for actions past. See yourself and others anew each day. For overnight there has been a shift, if only a small one. And supporting another will help move that shift in a loving direction.

Remember that thoughts are made of energy which can travel across realms. Keep your thoughts as pure as you can. Find compassion for yourself and others. You need not step into the fray of another’s life. But you can send energetic support to others and accept the same for yourself.

You have come so far. If you do not believe this truth, then sit and reflect upon your life. Yes, you may have stumbled along the way, but you have arrived here in this moment. Forgive yourself and others. Find compassion for yourself and others.

And never lose sight of the truth that you are the Divine Incarnate, connected to All of Creation. You are a beacon of light slowly opening up to your fullest potential. You are here at this moment in time for a reason, Dear One. It is because you are needed. Your life has purpose. And that purpose begins with sharing love with yourself and all who cross your path.

You have such power.

You live a purposeful life.

And you have gained such knowledge

Along the way.

Find balance in your life

And live it fully

In light and with love.

Dearest One With All of Thee.
