This seems to be quite a paradox, isn`t it? Because nobody has taught us to do it.
But even so, please don`t shut yourself before this statement and I do understand if it`s something you`re reading or hearing for the first time.
I understand, my friend 🙂
I really do, because we weren`t taught to honor ourselves, we didn`t see this at our parents our grandparents or elders, therefore, how could we possibly know about it?
Well, the answer is simple: we don`t.
But this can be changed and this the good part:-)
Yes, it is:-)
And you know why?
Because, it lies in our hands 🙂 Simple as that:-)
It lies in my hands to honor myself. It lies in your hands to honor yourself. It lies in their hands to honor themselves. And the list goes on and on and on… 🙂
The reason for this is because God gave us total freedom and responsibility for our lives. This can only mean that we`re free to treat our mind, body and soul in any way we choose to (followed by the specific consequences, of course. It is after all, a cause-effect world we live in)
So, what do I mean by You`re honoring God when you honor yourself? 🙂
Simply put, I mean this: God smiles when He sees that you take good care of yourself. God smiles when He sees that you`re being the best version of yourself. He smiles when he sees that you`re acknowledging the infinite power and potential that you have within you.
This is what I mean 🙂
Now, you may think, Why would God smile when He sees all this?
And the answer is this: He smiles because you`re being who you really are and who you were meant to be; He smiles because you`re expressing your gifts and talents into the world, making it a better place with them. He smiles because you are fully aware of all the greatness that is within you and you live by it day by day.
And let me tell you another thing, too. When you`re honoring yourself, you honor the divine spark and light that He placed in your soul. Yes, this is what happens…:-)
Isn`t it wonderful?:-) Aren`t we the most blessed amongst all creatures? 🙂
I truly believe we are, my friend…:-)
It is vital to honor yourself, my dear fellow human being 🙂
It is important to honor your soul, as it is the most precious thing you have and will ever have. This earthly life isn`t long and doesn`t last forever. Earthly things come and go, just like the sun rises in the morning and sets down in the evening.
So it is with our life. Is it beautiful? Certainly. Is it ours? Most definitely.
But it doesn`t last an eternity, therefore, why chase little and temporary things when it is our soul that truly matters and is with us till the end of all times?( If an end really exists, that is…:D Personally, I doubt it but that`s another topic)
Thus, we need to look after our souls and honor them, as they are the divine seeds given to us by God. They are the ones that really matter, and we better start honoring them…:-)
Then, come our mind and body. Why is it important to honor our mind and body?
Well, firstly because they are God given divine tools and it is through them that we can experience life. We honor our mind by using it well and wisely; we honor it by loving it and feeding it with uplifting, inspiring and positive thoughts. The mind is a very powerful tool; it can either help or harm us. The choice is ours and how we use it. Don`t get caught up by the collective mind`s attitude.
Honor your mind by thinking for yourself. This is where all your power and source of power is. Think for yourself and use your mind wisely.
The body is the third thing we need to honor in order for the Trinity to be complete 🙂
Imagine a traveler wanting to visit different places but doesn’t` have a carriage to do so? He can`t, can he? He needs a vehicle that will carry him throughout his journey.
Same thing with our bodies.
They are our “vehicles” through which we can walk, eat, feel, think, work. Without them, it would be IMPOSSIBLE for us to be here, in this human and physical shape.
That being said, it`s pretty obvious now why our bodies need special care and attention, right?:-)
They are these silent servants, giving us all and without asking anything back. At times, we get so caught up in our work and daily affairs that we forget that they need water, stretching, nutritious food (not junk food!), exercise and so on.
We tend to take for granted these divine tools called bodies but we shouldn`t as it is through God`s will that we came here, taking human form. It was His will to have these bodies…:-) Therefore, don`t take it for granted, ok?
Instead, be appreciative for it, love your body, give it what it needs.
This way, the Trinity will be in harmony…:-)
You see now, my friend, how important it is to honor yourself? You see how important it is to have the Trinity (your trinity) in balance?
The soul is linked to the mind for it can`t fulfill its purpose without it. The body is linked to the mind and both of them are linked to the soul because it is the soul that keeps them alive. The soul is the divine wood that keeps the fire burning.
If the wood runs out, how will you maintain the fire burning?
Think about it, please…:-)
Sending you much love 🙂
And remember: God is happy and smiles when you love yourself, when you accept and embrace all that you are, and mostly- He smiles when you honor YOURSELF. This is what He wants you to do.
Love & Light,
