Loving Your Self

Loving Your Self

By Amba Gale

Your reluctance
to make peace with yourself,
to love yourself,
your younger self, that is,
can now be seen, and named.

The demons that usually block
the entrance to the temple door
now beckon you to come in.

You have to do one thing only:

Put
your arm around your younger self
(the one that hurt the most)
give up the reluctance,
and speak.

It does not matter how old you were.

Put your arm around yourself.

Speak
        your compassion.

Speak
        your connection.

Speak
        your understanding.

And, finally, and most importantly,
speak
        your love.

And, then, keep on walking
through the temple door,
past the demons,
knowing your are loved.

Then, and only then,
the love of another can enter in.

Your sudden appearance and my willingness to be surprised meet and hold hands.…

Creating Spaciousness

Breathe. Let the light that is all around you enter through your crown chakra. Let it penetrate your Being. Feel The warmth of the fire within you. Know that you are loved. Align all the energies. Let them converge as one in the center of your Being. Breathe. Create space in time. All will come to pass in its own time. Don’t try to rush things. Breathe. Create room in time. Those creative possibilities are beautiful, all in their own time. Give yourself the gift of room in time. Let this knowing in your body and your heart lead the…
