I am a firm supporter that the Universe offers the most crucial pieces of the puzzle when we are ready for them, until then perhaps we fumble with the edges-trying to make something fit. We see the totality of the picture, but we can't always be sure how it fits together. How many times have you sat down to put together a puzzle and have found yourself frustrated or overwhelmed with the details? Perhaps you repeatedly try to make the same combo work, but to no avail. How is this puzzle metaphor like your life?
It is only when we become conscious of another way that we begin to reap the benefits of awareness. There are many awarenesses born throughout our lives at very divine moments. An undeniable awareness for me in my personal work has been the ability to discover threads of the 'Victim, Rescurer, and Persecutor' energy. Eek...a few years ago I would have felt shame about identifying these parts of myself, but owning them is powerful. It is only when we own our shadows that we can change them- we can bring them to the light and heal them!
These puzzle pieces have been essential in discovering the development of healthy relationships, self esteem, forgiveness, love, and this unending grace that appears as a natural benefit of participating in 'your work.' This 'work' will be my work until I take my last breath. How about you?
This book has helped me to identify when I have been participating in the 'Victim Triangle' as identified by The Wellness work. This 'Triangle' is comprised of old programs that we have running in our unconscious. While we run these old programs, we often recreate experiences that are long tied to outdated childhood thought patterns and behaviors.
I'm profoundly grateful for this work and I want to share it with the world!! This work heals, it cracks our hearts wide open, it offers opportunities to forgive, it allows us to live our lives in a more conscious way!! Awake and aware my friends! We are all in Earth School together!
Here's an excerpt from Diane's book that has the trifecta importance stamp!!!(highlighted, underlined and tabbed in my book!)
"...we are provided with relationships that give us the opportunity to heal or change the old unhealthy patterns of our past. Whether the past is other lives, or the recent past of our families, is not the main issue. Through our relationships we must learn to love ourselves and others; it's that simple.
Just as in business the bottom line is money, in relationships the bottom line is love. Love seems to be so difficult for us and yet it is so simple that children can do it better than we can as adults. Why do we take such a simple basic feeling and complicate it with pain and hurt and fear?
We use it to manipulate others and control their lives. We use it as a tool and a weapon in the battlefields of our relationships. And what are all the battles about? About love!! Am I love able? Do you love me? Do I love you? Do you love someone else? Instead of relationships being our battlegrounds, they must become our universities. Within the walls of these universities we learn what self esteem is all about. We learn that to love ourselves is the opposite of being selfish. When we feel good inside, it is like having a we. That is filled with love; we have so much more to give to others. When there is self-hate and insecurity inside, that is all we have to give to others."
We get so focused on making some else prove that they love us, all the while never being able to accept that we are lovable. So many people feel unworthy of love that they destroy relationship after relationship, unable to accept the love that is there. So loving ourselves is the key to successful relationships."
May these words resonate with your heart and may you remember that the bottom line is all about love!
May You Sweetly Seek:)
