Have you ever wondered whether you were receiving guidance or not? Or have you ever wondered why you keep seeing the same things over and over around you? Well, that is your guides way of telling you to pay attention to that thing.
For example, if someone says to you – Hey, you got to check out this course. And then another few people tell you that same thing. And then you see ads for it online or on your phone, and then you hear an ad about it on the radio. Well, that is your guides way of saying – you need to take this course, you can benefit from it in some way.
I have been getting major signs to practice self-love, self-compassion. It started by my psychic advisor recommending I read The Power of the Heart by Baptist de Pape. I am in the middle of reading it, but I bought it in mid-December .
I put together a list of things for Christmas because most of my family doesn’t like to guess. But I didn’t specify anything I wanted over anything else.
After I bought the book, I received a Kuan Yin statue, a heart chakra Alex and Ani bracelet, and a colorful heart charm. All of which people felt pulled to get me. Kuan Yin is the goddess of compassion. I also received a daily calendar that I finally opened at the end of the first week in January, and its message was “Love Yourself”.
I also recently got one of the magazines I subscribe to and the theme for the month is Self Compassion. I woke up and looked at my Instagram feed this morning and the first post I saw was that Lokai came out with a Love bracelet with a ton of hearts on it.
Now, I know Valentine’s Day is coming, but still. There are a lot of signs that I need to do some heart work and learn self-compassion. So, I am.
I am working on reading the book. I meditate with my hand on my heart and explore it a bit. I am working on healing my heart and loving myself more. I also listen to guided imagery for the heart and also for self-compassion.
I find self-compassion to be incredibly hard. It is easy for me to be compassionate to or for someone else, but the opposite for myself.
Living with health issues forever – literally my whole life – I have found it hard to have self-compassion. In essence; I don’t usually feel well, sometimes plans get ruined because of my health, and sometimes my health gets in the way of a lot of things I want to do. I get frustrated with myself that I feel so awful, or if I can’t do something, my plans fall through, etc. And that anger just sits within. I don’t express it much but instead hold it in. (Which I am working on doing less.) Eventually my anger turns to sadness and I just cry my eyes out but over the years I have developed a strong resilience and it takes a lot for me to break down these days. Unless of course, the endometriosis is causing me some OTHER problem, or if I need help but refused to rely on others. Not knowing how my life will look in the future, if I will be better, the same or worse, also bothers me. But I am working on self-compassion right now and it is slowly coming about.
Sometimes we are our own worst critics. I think a lot of us are like that, though most of the time it is mental and we don’t usually show it. Practicing self-compassion, relaxing our expectations of ourselves, being kinder to ourselves and giving ourselves a break is incredibly important. I am learning to accept myself as I am, to have more self-love and self-compassion and to cut myself some slack.
Have you experienced signs from above that you need to do something? Can you benefit from learning self-compassion? Tell me about it. 😊
