I was once again blessed this weekend to spend an amazing two days on Good Hope Farm near McGregor attending the ‘Timeout with the Angels’ Retreat. What an amazing weekend and so many new people met, new friendships formed and loads of personal healing and understanding for myself.
I always love the way that Michelle runs the sessions, very much guided by what is required by the group of people attending. Even though there is always a program, it seems that the Angels just take over and move us all towards where we most need to be.
So as we started the morning the issue of Self Love vs Self Worth came up and we did some amazing explorations. So we all get the concept of Self Love – this is really looking after yourself on a personal level, loving yourself enough to care and do things for you, things like pampering yourself, making sure that you are well looked after and generally learning to love yourself.
Then we have the other element of Self Worth – now this is a tricky baby to deal with. So when the explanation for this one started it was said that you need to realise that you are worthy of receiving more than you ever allow yourself to AND that you need to let go of stuff that does not serve you. Once you have done this the result will be peace and inner harmony.
How awesome is that – well it all sounded great and obviously this is something we all want – then our question came but how do I do this?
So we started with a simple exercise – she told us to write down what we love about ourselves. Man, was this a slow process, I think I got to about 8 things and then she said but think now about what other people say and think about you, so that made it way easier for me and I could actually start writing more things down.
What I found incredibly sad thought was that my list of stuff that I don’t like would be way longer than my initial list that I had to write about myself, this excluded the items that I know other people like about me.
So one thing to keep in mind and that Michelle kept on remind us of is – your reality is matched by your dominant vibration.
So by lifting our vibration we start changing the way we view things and the way we manifest things in our lives.
So our next exercise was to lift our vibration (so start thinking in a positive way about yourself) and start writing a list of things that you are worthy of. And do this by using I AM, so an example would be I Am worthy, I AM kind, I AM intelligent etc etc etc
Then once you have finished this list start again and lift your vibration again, but also think about how others think about you, about how much your angels and guides love you and how wonderful they think you are and then start writing a list again.
I was so surprised by what I got from this exercise and about how amazing it was to actually start looking at myself in such a positive light.
Then later on Kenny mentioned that him and his partner often play a game whilst driving where they use the I AM alphabet. So you start with A and this will be for instance I AM abundant and then move to B – I AM beautiful and then on to C – I AM courageous. And so you continue up to Z.
So yesterday morning I did some meditation and I thought about the wonderful alphabet game and I decided to start my meditation with it. What an awesome idea that was, and you know what I can feel the peace and inner harmony growing.
So my tip for the week start playing the I AM alphabet game with yourself and raise your vibration every time you do this.
I loved it!
