March is a great time for connecting with, renewing, reclaiming and
healing your inner self. The question is, who do you want to be in this
new spring? Just like the new growth of plants, you grow and change too.
It’s just that you can mindfully choose the changes you want to
make, and on a deep level.
First, take stock of the reactive choices you have made. By that, I mean
those mistakes that you may have said or done without thinking about it
in reaction to a trigger, and now regret the results. A great way of doing
this is to look through your journal and highlight those moments you have
documented. Then, close your eyes, take a few deep breaths, and
visualize that situation again. How would you change it? How does the
result change? Do you like that result? If so, practice this new way of
responding – because chances are – the universe will give you a type of
“do over”. When that happens, all you have to do is take a deep
breath, pause, remember you new choice of response, and respond.
Document what happens in your journal and give yourself kudos for
changing a conditioned response. You are learning to choose who you
want to be, renewing and revising your inner programs and reclaiming
your true self.
The connection with your true self comes in when you breath deeply and
connect with you, the divine. The connection with your divine, true self
allows you to be guided by the divine to be – and act- according to your
true, divine nature and purpose. The response you chose consciously (or
unconsciously) allows you to re-write your inner programming that has
been there – possibly even starting in the womb or in your genetics (which
science is starting to prove is powerful). You can be your true self –
though it may take some courage to breach your family patterns. It’s
hardest to be you when you are with your family as the programming gets
triggered, so remember to take lots of deep breaths to anchor
and connect with you. You get to reclaim your divine self.
The healing comes into play by being compassionate and loving with
yourself and the mistakes that provide your personal learning lessons.
Accepting that you are here to have this experience and grow into your
greatest being – becoming self-actualized and connecting with the Creator
of All. We are each here to grow and learn, and you would not expect a
first grader to be doing calculus – so avoid expecting yourself to be
perfect – if you were, you wouldn’t be here!
So, enjoy the experience of connecting with you, renewing, reclaiming
and healing your inner self. Have fun with it and may your journey be
