In today’s blog I share with you the words that came to me during my yoga practice yesterday morning. I believe these are words for all of us!
Worthiness and Love
Of late, I have been reflecting on worthiness – specifically worthiness of being loved. This love is of course about our intimate human relationships, AND I know at the deepest core of my being, that this worthiness is ultimately about Divine Love and our ability to believe we are loved unconditionally, infinitely and beyond measure. As in worthiness of human love, we might hear that God loves us, but do we actually believe it? Most of the time and for most human beings, I would say the answer is “NO.” And what I have learned is that until we not only hear this love, but believe in it….with our whole hearts and souls, we are without peace, joy, compassion, mercy and fulfillment. In other words, it is in REMEMBERING the LOVE that WE ARE…..that we find peace, contentment and joy.
So I showed up for yoga class yesterday morning with these thoughts wrapped around my aura. Before beginning class, our instructor usually invites us to state within ourselves an intention for our practice. I didn’t have a specific intention for the morning, so I simply sat in silence, waiting. Then, clear as a bell, I hear God speak. And this is what God said to me, “You are my beloved daughter, and with you I am well pleased.” Yeah, Yeah….I know this is scriptural….and that it comes from the scriptural narratives about Jesus’ baptism in the Jordan by John. And…..I also believe these are not only God’s words for Jesus….but are God’s words for us as well. And…..hearing these words yesterday made me wonder, “Is this the truth Jesus had to hear, know, embrace and embody before he could embark upon his own healing ministry?” I think perhaps it is! So I used these words as a mantra during my yoga practice and allowed myself to not only hear these words, but begin to believe them. And in being present to these words, I felt peaceful, joyful, grounded and secure.
My Prayer for You
So, here is my prayer/invitation for you today – that you take these words, You Are my Beloved Daughter/Son, and with You I am Well Pleased – imagine that God is saying these words directly to and about you……and believe that God is addressing you in this way. Then, let your heart be open to hearing, believing, embracing and embodying this truth…..BECAUSE…….YOU ARE LOVE…..YOU ARE LOVED…..YOU ARE WORTHY….And the quicker you know this….the quicker you will know peace, contentment, fulfillment and joy!
