The more you begin to differentiate between what YOU see and feel and experience vs what others told you to see, feel, and hear, the more you will see that you are a strong, confident, centered, and courageous woman.Self-remembering is the willful act of not just choosing a response, but choosing that response as a process of returning to the deepest core of your being, to the truth, love, and energy of you. It is the practice and process of remembering yourself as more than False Personality, more than reactions, more than enduring, more than tired, more than overwhelmed, more than scared, more than worried, more than lost.You are a multifaceted beautiful living being that can shift and change like a faceted gemstone in brilliant light.You are uniquely you and there is no shame in this. When your uniqueness is used against you or shamed or brought into question, it will be helpful for you to understand that you are YOU. You cannot be another person.Your insecurities need not be your first line of honesty. It is just as honest to share who you are in terms of your joy, your curiosities, your philosophy, your silliness, your passions, etc. Let yourself be honest about who you truly are, rather than assuming you must display the worst of you as a threshold for others to cross in order to truly see you. You need not hide your insecurities, but you can share alongside your insecurities the rest of who you are. What you will begin to find is that you need not emphasize and focus on your insecurities as a way to heal and transform them. You will find that your focus on living and being as a whole person, you let others get to know more of you and this lets you get to know more of you and this builds your confidence more than any singular focus on just the wounding.This is a mix of message from ourselves and your Essence, since we are "on the same page" regarding support and compassion here: YOU MATTER. YOU CONTINUE TO MATTER. LIVE. LOVE. LAUGH. SCREAM. EMBRACE THE ABSURDITY AND CONFUSION THAT ARE A PART OF LIFE. EMBRACE THE ABSURDITY AND CONFUSION THAT ARE A PART OF DEATH. ABSURDITY AND CONFUSION, PAIN AND SHOCK, GRIEF, SADNESS AND ANGER DO NOT NEGATE THE BEAUTY, THE LOVE, THE JOY, THE PLAY, THE LIFE, THE LOVE, THE LAUGHS. ALL OF IT MATTERS. ALL OF US MATTER. IT DOES NOT END. NOT BEING ABLE TO SEE AROUND THE CURVE DOES NOT MEAN THE ROAD HAS ENDED.Think of Love as meaning Gift. Allow the Gifts in your life. Express your Gifts to others freely.You are already a lovable, loving, confident, creative, playful, intimate, and attractive person; there is no need to be rescued or wait for someone else to come along before you open your own gifts.Trust is inherent in you. It is not something that you develop. It is something you lose. (...) It is far more natural for you to trust than it is to not trust.Healing your past empowers your present and shifts your future back into the hands of your own creation.Loneliness is about being a stranger to the self, seeking identity in or through others. Aloneness means being able to be with yourself, sit with yourself, do things for yourself, think for yourself, choose for yourself, have for yourself.You may find that you fail, make a mistake, do not succeed, etc, but these are things that mean you are trying, that you are growing, learning, evolving. They are not signs that define you. They are invitations to learn more.To get back to your own voice of encouragement and trust and confidence, you would want to acknowledge the voices of Self-deprecation because they are only trying to protect you, but you would want to bring your voice to the front. If you hear the voices of discouragement, you can say "thank you for the warning, but let's see what I can do." It is not a battle with the discouragement. It is not an effort to prove yourself wrong. It is honoring your fears while teaching yourself a new response.To get used to the idea and practice of allowing the flow of Energy in your life, and accessing Vitality and trust in your choices- we suggest playing with each day as if it is an incarnation. You are the Essence of the day, and the day is your Personality.No matter what happens to you, you are ultimately safe.You are your own Universe, as well as being the equivalent of a cell in an even vaster Universe. And your Truth, Love, and Energy matter.The degree to which you nurture affection, generate/feel inspiration, and have healthy relationships is the degree to which the force of Love is nurtured, generated, and healthy in you and your life.You are the trainer of your reality, which is just to say that you are the one who chooses how you experience EVERYTHING.Kindness is a door to Curiosity and Curiosity is a fuel for life.On a daily basis, at various points in the day, when nothing in particular is happening, it can be helpful to state out loud, or internally: "I remember now: I like me."Imagination is the reverse of MemoryEverything beyond your liking yourself is a lie, is imprinting, is useless for anything more than information about how to make your next choices and decisions.The search for Essence is much like the search for a lost pair of sunglasses that are later found to be on your head.When you feel ugly, fearful, anxious, upset, angry, helpless, lonely, etc. we suggest that you embrace those things, but always along with the phrase, "It is okay for me to forget for a while."You will create your path to meaningfulness. It is a path, not a place. It is not a destination, but a realization. It is not a reward, but a reality.
