If you’ve been following this series of posts you now have the basic keys to unlock your heart centre to receive God/Yourself. That sounds like a strange statement to make if you’re coming at this from scratch but how many of you actually understand your own divine nature? And more to the point, how many of you actually hold yourself dear to your own heart?
The final hurdle in the quest to occupy your own heart space is fully accepting responsibility for yourself, your health, your happiness, your actions, your feelings and of course your life, then taking steps to fulfil the highest potential in each.
We so often give over that honour to others in a bid to share ourselves but an inability to assess where you end and another begins is a recipe for co-dependency and allows some of the other hurdles to rear up and take root, like adopting the opinions of others to fit in, blaming and unforgiveness, and dependency also breeds entitlement and ownership…
Don’t get me wrong, what we want create here is interdependency rather than independence, the difference being that no man is an island and belonging, bonding and human interaction is at the very heart of human experience and probably the reason we incarnate in the first place but being capable of and actively taking care of ones own needs eliminates social imbalance and the hierarchical structure in many interactions.
We all need someone. I’m too short to reach the top cupboards and whilst married to a very tall guy, I let him reach the pots down for me but now I’m divorced I bought a step ladder… I didn’t sit there and cry because I couldn’t do it myself. That’s a very basic representation and its not a true reflection of the power of being Self-Full… when you meet your own needs to the absolute best of your abilities, you enlist the help of powerful supporters: the unbreakable laws of the universe. When you put yourself at the top of your list and make choices based on your own needs, (taking into account those who have no choice but to depend on you: children, the elderly or infirm), then you also become an inspiration to those who are trying to start their very own Grail Quest.
Try, for the next 7 days, if you do nothing else in this series, to place yourself at the top of your own list… The pressure it takes off of your loved ones will be a massive relief. There are those who will buck against this shift in your priorities, change is after all challenging but the quest, this life, isn’t for the faint hearted…
Some will see this change as selfish and those are the people with whom you are in a power struggle or refuse to become self-full in their own right… and that’s a whole other series for us to explore.
Principle 6: I AM Self-Full
Once you’ve scaled the final hurdle, your heart opens and you know you are worthy…
