Have you ever noticed that, however you were treated as a child, that’s how you tend to treat yourself now?
Also, you often tend to form relationships who people who treat you the way you experienced when you were a child.
For instance, if those who raised you treated you with love and respect … do you also love and respect yourself?
Do the people now in your life treat you with love and respect?
On the other hand, if those who raised you abused, criticized or neglected you … do you also abuse, criticize or neglect yourself?
Does anyone now in your life claim to love you; yet abuses, criticizes or neglects you?
These are emotional and psychological patterns you take on when you’re young.
They make such a deep impression, it can be difficult to be free of them until you become aware of them – and choose something better.
If you’re aware of them now, would you like to change them for the better?
Are you willing to let go of the past and allow Forgiveness to flow through you now toward yourself and all who hurt you (understanding that forgiveness never means what they did was okay – just that you’re releasing the pain you’ve been carrying all these years)?
Would you like your Higher Power to lift you free of painful patterns now, and give you new patterns that create fulfillment, joy and peace in your relationships with yourself and others?
Want to know what will really happen if you accept, forgive, love and respect yourself fully and freely now, in relation to what you’ve imagined will happen, from the Highest Truth?
If so, say “Yes” out loud now* and feel the energy coming in through the top of your head.
Now, notice how you feel. Notice what you know now that you didn’t know before. And give thanks for it!
That’s your Miracle Minute with Moira Shepard. See you next time. Have a miraculous day!
