Experience A Unique And Dynamic You

You are amazing. Wonderful. A unique and dynamic individual. There’s no one on earth exactly like you (it makes me smile just thinking about that). How special you are!

Have you had the experience of holding a brand new baby, your new baby, the moments after if came into the world? If you have you will know what I mean. If you haven’t than maybe you can imagine what that would be like.

This is what your mother felt for you in those first tender seconds of life. This is the pride your father carried in his heart as you grew.

At what point did you forget that this is who you are?

Life layers on depths of emotions, limiting beliefs about yourself, experiences you were maybe ill equipped to handle. So it is that you look into the mirror of your soul and don’t see a clear reflection of beauty anymore.

What a tragedy that perhaps you avoid looking.

That’s only your conscious limitations and your negative self-talk. It’s sabotaging you from seeing an accurate picture of yourself. Beneath life’s dustiness is the same soul who began the journey all those years ago.

The dust, and battle scars, are merely the honour of the experiences you have faced in a quest to do the best you know how and live a satisfying life.

How do I know all this about you?

I believe that based on our circumstance and the events that come into our experience we:

  • form memories,
  • make decisions,
  • reinforce values and beliefs
  • generate internal attitudes toward others and ourselves.

These things are neither right nor wrong. They are simply the sum of who we are. You need to take into account the human propensity to delete certain memories, distort even more of them and make sweeping generalizations about life as you walk headlong into it.

This becomes our toolbox that we draw from when looking to make sense of life… and most of all when we are looking to make sense of ourselves.

This soul is doing the best that it knows how with the tools it has available.

New events evoke a response based on what we have previously learnt in the past. We enter readily into a state and physiology that governs our behaviour that we subsequently project out to the world.

This generates a response from the world we’ve projected our internal stuff out onto and so our life becomes a self-perpetuating cycle of our own making.

If you’re not in the habit of looking for the positive side of life, and loving yourself unconditionally, it can be very easy to gather more obscuring dust and feel the weariness of the battle that you war within.

It’s all part of being responsible, or at cause, for your life. It’s also a raising of awareness that can start to cleanse that mirror of your soul. Trust me, there’s someone wonderful in there. Amazing!

How special you are!

:) You are too cute! With mom in the hospital it's been a rough couple of months but I'm trying to keep up with everything. Can only devote about an hour a day to all the emails and reading and squidoo and the like. Can't wait 'til she's all better!

We spend a lifetime applying layers of negative false notions we have of ourselves, and spend the same lifetime with sandpaper and a brush, trying to uncover who we really are. Yes, each and every one of us is a masterpiece in our own way. It's a shame we can't appreciate ourselves without being told we are just fine the way we are. Well, the sandpaper gives us an interesting patina anyway. Thanks Heather.

The universe provides when we have a need, Merrily. I'm so glad you stopped by here. Seeing beauty in ourselves can be challenging at times and yet, when we do, it is easier to see it in others. The rewards are so great and our world becomes a nicer place!

Thanks Heather. This one made me sit and think. Instead of gathering more dust to obscure my vision I am enjoying gathering the positive aspects. And as you say that is being responsible for our lives.

Just finished reading the previous article, and bang I'm hit by another. The double barrel shotgun you keep firing, have my days at a thought provoking start. This one I understand better than the last, I look in the mirror and say good morning to myself, and have a good day, if I look and tell myself what an ugly so and so I am, have a bad day. Read your articles and I have a good day, Thank you, you're a special person.
