Accept: Align With Life

alignHeart_smI view acceptance as a three-pronged challenge and opportunity: to accept what life brings, to accept other people, and to accept yourself. Whenever you can manage this, you align with life.

“Acceptance: Let the mist of unworthiness evaporate.” Recently following a challenge I felt I demonstrably “failed” at facing, I explored the events in the Akashic Records, the archive and blueprint for all soul information. They reminded me to “Accept your best.” Right, each “best” stands innately perfect in its imperfection, and can lead you to a better best when you practice acceptance. Self-acceptance opens the door to accepting the rest of life. You did it, you said it, you own it, you accept it, you begin again.

“Move forward and embrace life as it presents itself to you.” To embrace life may sound extreme or even offensive during life’s most difficult challenges but at some point it help to ask “What can I embrace?” to begin to ease into a “new normal” life. In Linda Howe’s Akashic Records training we learned to ask, “How can this be good for me?” followed by “How could this possibly be good for me?” if the first question yields nothing. Whether answers present themselves or not, life invites you to keep living despite whatever obstacles you face. Somehow strength and resilience come.

“Practice the art of inclusion and allowing.” What does it take to accept the people in your life with all their imperfections and foibles? Making room for all the variations on “human” is a real challenge, especially if you haven’t carved out enough room for yourself.

To accept isn’t to resign yourself or to align with defeat. Acceptance means you relax into life, it brings ease. Can you connect with a time accepting brought ease? Did you feel it in your body as well?

*The acceptance quotes come from The Original Angel Card Book – Inspirational Messages and Meditations by Kathy Tyler and Joy Drake.

  1. Hi Christy, I keep returning to this sentence: “Making room for all the variations on “human” is a real challenge, especially if you haven’t carved out enough room for yourself.” Self-care is key and, in some cases, extreme self-care may be needed. Thanks for another thought-provoking post. Joanne 🙂

    • Hi Joanne,
      Thanks as always for your interest and comment. I think I need to return to that sentence as well! 🙂 I benefit from both the writing and your comments so I’ll say “You’re welcome/Thank you.” I think there needs to be a word or phrase for that combo!
      Warm regards,
      Christy

  2. “Forbearance comes from knowing that just like there is infinite variety in Nature, there is infinite variety in people… and their foibles…” – I had just read this in a Vivekananda essay, before I came over to read your post… Thought it relevant, and that I would share 🙂
    Namaste 🙂
