Quote I like:

May the presence and power of spirit surround, support and guide us and keep us safe.
May we remember the deep love we have for each other.
May we greet our emerging differences with tenderness and tolerance.
May we call on our courage to speak our truth, and reveal our vulnerabilities.
May we reflect back to others without blaming or shaming.
May we hear the truth others speak with compassion.
May we have patience with their process and emergence.
May we pause, breathe, and let ourselves settle.
May we stand in love and strength together.
May our rough edges be doorways to healing. – Bette Acuff

tumblr_nb9yt6hspl1qfrjsho1_250.jpgI love this diagram 

I understand : there is only so much I can take in - in one day. I understand there is only so much I can do in one day. Today I have self compassion for where I am, what I have experienced and support myself to moving thru where my life journey leads.

I see: thru the empowering seed of faith & hope  

I speak: thru acceptance and love for myself 

I love: thru a love for the Creator of the Universe & myself. Loving myself allows me to desire the Perfect gifts the Creator has for me as I surrender 

I do: what is needed to the best of my ability on any given day .

I feel: that who I am, what I do, have done & will do are enough / & as I grow - all grows well too from right where I AM

I AM: right where I am supposed to be.

2) I can’t, yet, won’t, haven’t yet, because

I intend …to renew my Spirit throughout my day every day. My Spirit is already peaceful & harmonious , and renewing it allows for the Good I AM that already exists.
 
With my highest belief and expectation…. I allow people to be who they are, and not engage with anything other than love. No one need understand Love as my life , as long as I do . I choose to believe love permeates all that is , & with Prayer whatever seeps thru is accepted as intended for that moment in time.
I intend with my deepest conviction….that I love myself unconditionally at all times.
More than other moment, I intend….to surrender 
Today is that day I AM …free from concerns as I have known and being introduced to a brand new day & I allow Hope in to my essence.
Today is that day I will …enjoy myself by being adequately proactive in my most valued areas.
Today is the day no matter what …I see myself as amazing , courageous & living a good life.
I am amazing , therefore I can, will, do …what I need and desire daily . I will allow what is needed to be desirable.

In response to Inspired- Please&Thank you's post:

Self compassion is a very merciful and loving act...  It will sooth the soul...

Every time I allow myself to choose a new response, I lean in to being compassionate, patient and kind. I allow myself to stop, take a break and begin again with peace.

Self compassion allows me to sort things out.

 

Thank you for putting up this meeting!

 

“Radical Acceptance is the ability to face hardships with greater love and deeper awareness.
Contemplation shapes radical acceptance as a way to choose love and peace over anger and despair.
Begin by finding this within ourselves before helping others.

Compassion is something that I need - continuously through out my day.

With compassion, I choose to align with my how I want to experience my day and my daily list of needs.

When I encounter difficulty or other barriers, I give my self permission to re-presence what it is that I am committed to getting done and I choose how I want to feel while I get my work done...

I choose inner peace.  

I choose inner resilience, inner connectedness and inner gratitude.

I am grateful for Bmindful and our Bmindful community.

I appreciate all of the growth and the learning that I have gotten here... 

I am grateful for my relationship with self compassion so that I can be open to self love and self care.

Begin by finding this within ourselves before helping others.

I learn something everyday - that leads me to greater understanding and then, to greater self compassion.

Today, I got to a new place of gratitude and joy by listening with my heart and trusting my Spirit.

For 3 days, I had been having some anxiety about a score on a test which had not been posted yet. In the 3 day wait, I chose that I was happy to pass the test and to not be upset with just a passing score.

I stayed in peace in my Spirit. I did a lot of prayer of other parts of my life that I am actively creating, and I can feel the benefit of and the structure that this new routine is creating.

I learned that my brain is immediately adaptable, it's completely responsive - and instantaneous! 

This is really great to know... 

I am fully capable of adaptation and it's fully self directed - to get my mind into a relaxed state, and in that relaxation, find joy in that de - escalation. It's an instant reward of resilience!

I just wanted to to connect with inner calm and inner confidence, and I wanted that to be based upon inner peace.

some more

of the suggested

focus questions:

A. Describe what having more self compassion has done for you lately ?

a) more peace 

b) more desire to be , do , have what may benefit me.

c) allowing me to forgive myself for things I didn’t know & had wished I did to help others more

0bb85e65b5f3dcb93893884c7a4233d3.jpg?b=t

 



 

What inspired you to create ways to enhance self compassion and how has it benefited you so far?

I wasn’t comfortable with my speed/level of productivity with various projects.

I wasn’t comfortable with how I felt with a behavior of someone who was rude and I wanted to have more compassion for them/ backfired on me - getting further behind in meaningful areas for myself & felt drained from the experience w/ the person.

Working on self compassion for me, ending up allowing for self compassion for this person who was in pain. And I was able to forgive myself & this person in ways & areas I wasn’t able to do previously.

 

 


Tools I used to increase my self compassion were: coming soon

 

 

 

 

 

B.

How does self compassion increase your happiness?

I know I can only be wherever I am , and I forgive myself for not being where the rest of the world is as a ‘whole’ or

moments w/ many interactions w/individuals.

We all

interact with many people

outside of ourselves

with love & yes a level of detachment.

. After I am centered in love

and compassion for myself …

& self care … which is also self love /self compassion… I can be present for the intricacies of the world & appreciate greater 

levels of happiness 

 

 

 

 

 

C. How will you be mindful of your self compassion daily?

I will be aware that the ‘unfamiliar’ is something I will familiarize myself with.

 

Affirmations

created

recently

I can do what is next for me because I Am an expert on myself and my expertise is rare optimum form in this moment.

 

I choose to see what there is to see and to do what there is to do.

I have blinders on for unwanted detours & only allowing incredible journey

I thank you God, as my awesome Perfect Provider/

connection to the Best of only the Best.
I claim that best

as I observe /participate

in that best

which is healthy,

whole

& perfectly loving qualities .

And it is all so. Amen.

Being human is not about being any one particular way; it is about being as life creates you—with your own particular strengths and weaknesses, gifts and challenges, quirks and oddities.
Kristin Neff,

The beauty of self-compassion is that instead of replacing negative feelings with positive ones, new positive emotions are generated by embracing the negative ones. The positive emotions of care and connectedness are felt alongside our painful feelings. When we have compassion for ourselves, sunshine and shadow are both experienced simultaneously. This is important—ensuring that the fuel of resistance isn’t added to the fire of negativity. It also allows us to celebrate the entire range of human experience, so that we can become whole. As Marcel Proust said, “We are healed from suffering only by experiencing it to the full.

I had a recent experience with my inner child & she was kind of snarky w/ me. 

That was a new experience for me/ 

Bottom line, I found out - the many things I felt I needed to do & not conferring w/ her to find out if she needed some kind of comfort that only she knew she needed - was having her dig her heels in w/ me. She reminded me of a rude friend / when she really wasn’t rude as much as feeling ignored and needing my love & support 

I may not always know what I need or even how to fix what is wrong … though my inner child’s feelings give me immeasurable wisdom.,Thank you little Self

In response to Inspired- Please&Thank you's post:

some things I have learned about self compassion:

~ if various external things were no longer in your life - who would you be to yourself , to others … to the world?

I found out we don’t really know how dependent we are to external circumstances being a certain way until they are no longer ‘in place’

So where does focus belong & why?

1) kindness - yes to self & others. We never know about others being there as they were - the way we valued & brought us joy, purpose & further meaning 

so yes be kind - 

2) self care - as long as we give to ourselves in progressively healthy ways…. we have a better chance at resilience in life - to be present for ourselves & others 

3) joy, happiness - we aren’t going to happy , happy , happy 100% of the time , though it’s okay to know that it’s a place we like to spend time, refer back to & create better better experiences whenever possible… and bring good feelings to others … ( with the understanding everyone must ultimately make their own choices .

4) back to self compassion - it’s a process . We may believe we are unattached to anything / Though be glad you have some attachments . Attachments inspire. And be glad we can detach . detachment with love is freedom.

5) and with the power of prayer - all is possible.

In response to Inspired- Please&Thank you's post:

I very much appreciate the numerous quotes, all of which are beautiful examples of how we can welcome and nurture new growth in the field of consciousness and inner compassion.

In particular, I want to acknowledge the quote by Bette Acuff. It's just a well written, well thought out and a balanced quote of what this happiness meeting is bringing forth for me.

One brief comment about the quality and the contribution of Bmindful Happiness Meetings:  Happiness meeting were the beginning of a new phase for me, in my personal life. All of the other ground work was a strong foundation. 

Happiness Meeting are a work of creating; each meeting, each subject brings us to a new level - a new invitation to engage in that offering for growth, for new seeds and greater capacity to understand ourself and others.

In a word, I am like a seamstress, pulling on a few threads of meaningfulness in my life...

I know we are all working really hard, and sincerely wanting to be our best, our healthiest, and to thrive and achieve in each of our intentions.

More interiorly, I want to be as good as a listener, as a learner, as a lover of Life, Love and of Wisdom... To me, that is the work of inner connectedness. And, we all have a vastness, we just need to choose how, when and where we set about to do the work of learning how to connect and how to interpret this information.

Happiness meetings are all about what I am pointing towards...

I want that Joy of Being open to contribution. Open to transformation. Open to Being a contribution. I want that Light. I want that growth, that awareness, that ability to facilitate healing, union and be a source of peace, a source of indescribable wellness, creativity and connectedness.

Back to Happiness Meetings. Often, my posts are not demonstrative of all of the work that I am growing behind the scenes, and this is how it should be for all of us.

I am very grateful for All of this growth.

I understand

and

you are so right -

about not being able to represent where life takes us ,

when our spirit nurtures

us & the development we experience/

and continue to:

 

… Happiness Meetings & Bmindful

are a  unique setting …

I believe we go that place that is uniquely us … sharing facets of ourselves

and enjoying facets of each other.A peaceful place for authentic growth & inner reward

I have been on the receiving end too, and I am exactly where I am today because of the compassion and the care that I received when I needed it.

I am extremely grateful for the miracle's that I received, the amazing people who took the time to just listen. What a powerful gift it is to be heard and understood...

I very much believe that healing is as much as a journey -- as it need be. Maybe I needed to reach out for help several times before the right door opened. Maybe I needed to really get strong in my will and my determination - and maybe I needed to reach a point where the only thing left to do was to pray for a miracle. 

I know that all of the work that everyone does on Bmindful is helpful, it is life affirming, it can bring peace and order to overwhelm. 

I am inspired because when you feel full of positivity - you want to share joy with others so they can feel it too!

Can you imagine if EVERYONE was wiling to be open to Being a contribution?!!

Honestly,... the possibilities are endless!

I concur on all things you have shared .

A wonderful purpose to be joyful from the inside / out 

The world needs more positive encounters …. & just think we are part of that revolution.

And even when we are needing help/ support - we raise awareness to others that they are not alone in moments that feel less than perfect & we raise awareness that they can contribute with listening & or prayer. 

The world gets better because we do.

New compassion is new Life. 

 

I need constant renewal -- many times -- for many reasons ... when I am very focused to getting one important or vital task done, and done well...

Like all Growth --- there is a learning process as well as other types of processes that are different than learning. 

These other aspects -- like the aspects of brilliance that you can learn to identify when you look into a flawless blue white diamond ---  add a new and unique dimension, with a separate quality, a kaleidoscope type of a shower -- of capacity, increased vitality, increased velocity, increased sustenance - or resuscitation of the emergence of Self that is enveloped in Spirit.

I hope that you can follow where and what I am attempting to say here...

What is important is that when we encounter these unforeseen aspects of ourself - that we are aware that there is a part of us that is our own witness. And, that the Self that recognizes these rare occurrences validates that these lateral aspects exist. 

 

I allow my Self sleep, sustenance, time, space and awareness

for all that I need in this moment

so that I can connect with 

the multitude of processes that produce a new Self.

 

What becomes available is new life, new options, new Being...

I absolutely do understand  (:

Please continue as you desire.

It’s very interesting the points you are articulating.

I understand more of course

how it relates to my own experience because I can more fully identify w/ my own life.

While I cannot be in your experience

, I do attempt to hear you

 

& I  hope that I can allow a greater connection with you as well as just knowing what you are sharing is your beautiful experiential work .

pause - be still - & allow … &

to listen … & then decide if and how to participate

 How will you be mindful of your self compassion daily? I will go to my heart place and ask how I am feeling.

I will be loving toward myself regardless of any circumstance outside myself . I will care how I feel and not just try to substitute the feeling for a better feeling .
I will allow my love & prayer to

be the love I need .

Compassion Letter to Inner Child

My Dearest Inner Child,
I suppose you feel
I have been pushing you a lot & not always addressing how you feel even though I want us to be so satisfied & content.

Did you know we can create a game out of getting things done ?

 

We can align with fun & a good life

  • We will appeal to your fun & creative side
  • You want to feel good memories & other good feelings
  • You want to feel better about what is ahead and your purpose 
  • You want to know that I am listening to you
  • You want safety & security
  • You need a fun colorful way to begin every day and know you are actually getting whete it is you say you want to go 
  • You want to know that you are doing well and pray with more faith perspectives of miracles in your life
  • You don’t like change , though you enjoy  things to improve 

that’s where our teamwork comes in

I know you know we can experience a whole host of wonderful things, though you want me to hold your hand and enjoy the journey with you much more. I will give it my very best always because I love you , I love us.

Why does deep conviction

   THE MORE PLAYFUL I AM ABOUT LIFE, THE EASIER IT ALL IS

  I am

having so much fun playing house

I  experience boundless faith-filled freedom and supportive love throughout my world.

     A wonderful new invigorated strength is flowing freely to every part of my being now. I am renewed in spirit, soul, and body

  I live in the best place for my spirit and physical well being

I am building the home of my dreams.

Its a Beautiful Day posted this before:

 




Wow! I now have the awesome ability

to accomplish tasks of all levels of

emotional & physical

complexity with

uncanny ease.

  • It’s about preparation, and I am quite the prepper 
  • Its always been about allowing time , space & energy. Today I AM Time , Space & Energy . I permit easily my ideal self by having compassion for inner child . 
    I acknowledge my inner child . I respect my inner child . I include my inner child .

I made the perfect choice to dwell in peace, appreciation and freedom! ◦ -I Am allowing myself to Be whatever I enjoy feeling. I do this simply and powerfully by doing more of what works in my life…

I have realized more:

to be more compassionate to and for myself … an inner child connection is imperative . Some call the place where their feelings reside something else, though I am more than peaceful addressing this place as my inner little one/ little ones. 

Today woke up knowing I had things I was going to do… I went to my feeling place - and I had an inner chat … I noticed the dialogue and the emotions were changing . ‘She ‘ has been a little touchy or angrier lately . That was new. I noticed I was pushing myself a lot to accomplish necessary things. I didn’t think that was ‘bad’ because getting out of one’s comfort zone doesn’t always feel great . So, I found myself ignoring these feelings to keep on going . ‘She’ started to dig her heels in and was not being very compliant. 

So, I let her do what she wanted . We started to do less and less for awhile. I didn’t care on many levels , she seemed to see something I didn’t … I didn’t know how we’d get things ‘done’ if she was on strike .

So I started a more lighthearted practice with my affirmations and learned to be my inner child’s best friend again.

’We’ have gone back to the basics of compassion and listening … and now we are speaking and the dialogue is maturing and she admits to not knowing how to do things and sometimes just  not knowing how new things are making her feel. To me one of the wisest things anyone can admit to - is not knowing .

And when we don’t know , & we honestly admit that , it’s an easier next step to surrender to a God which has always exceeded my understanding- though never has left .

On some level when life changes do drastically- can’t help but wonder how alone alone really is . People are wonderful, and grateful for all . Though, they can’t fix loss . They can’t fix things I don’t personally want to do & need to to give myself a life I need and/ or the infamous life of my dreams 

So I choose to surrender - not give up. I choose to surrender not by giving in. I choose to surrender by giving it all I got by knowing I don’t have all the answers / though the Creator of the universe who is a mystery to me by being mysterious… yet never being unable to support or handle the life I have claimed to finally feel I don’t understand. This powerlessness is opening the door to an empowerment that only could have occurred this powerfully by admitting I don’t know on the deepest level & a Greater Good has my back with the most benevolent outcome.

I honestly believe - feeling like we

have to have all the answers can feel like power though

it actually opens the door to anxiety & stuckness

 When powerlessness is opening the door

and surrendering is the answer

we get real complete answers for that

Today I will have total self compassion for me during my planning & carrying out my :

  • self care
  • home care 
  • creating my helpful ledgers 
  • clearing things out inner/outer life
  • Allowing 
  • Creating 
  • Being

Thinking of fun hasn’t been a focus the way it once was , even though fun was more a way of being than doing .
Though in my desire to increase my self compassion - it is my intention to allow and be more fun … without ‘trying too hard’ Trying too hard at fun would defeat the purpose lol

My security is my relationship

Writing where we are in any given moment is such a beautiful freedom and a statement to our spirit 

When life gets messy , it’s up to us how we want to simplify . 
Our spirit knows what is right for us , and we are the peace we allow.

My feeling is - acknowledge there is a process , and identifying with others can be helpful , though what I find is the most compassionate and empowering is to be okay where you are , no matter who gets it. 
that’s self compassion.

Our experiences differ from the individual experiences of the world - though we have a common bond - our uniqueness & our humanity 

hang on to that, I feel ,

A. Describe what having more self compassion has done for you lately ? What inspired you to create ways to enhance self compassion and how has it benefited you so far? I would like to answer this question, now that some time has passed:

Back soon

I will give the source of the following questions credit , as soon as I locate again.

Please forgive me for not having yet

I believe it was an article blog about finding purpose when you have experienced a loss .

What can I learn here?

How can I realize more meaning in my life?

What is worthy of my attention?

Where is your (or the) attention?

How is your (or the) energy?

Such an excellent question...

yes, not only do I accept how I'm doing and feeling, I am unspeakably relieved....

After writing briefly on this meeting, I fell into one of the deepest sleep I've ever experienced...

 

Yes, I accept me, my entire human self, on all levels.

Yes... I fundamentally and I spiritually accept every aspect; and I want to know and understand every what's new in this moment...

Every thought, belief and perception holds the vastness of my processing, and that's where the action is -- is in this moment.

In this moment, I accept this entire life experience because I/we are more than this life... and we are much, much, much more than "this moment," we are eternally loved and we are eternal.

Acceptance is not our least greatest aspect, acceptance is our greatest aspect...

I am without guile.

I claim for myself peace in mind body and soul


“If we find ourselves unworkable and give up on ourselves, then we’ll find others unworkable and give up on them.  What we hate in ourselves, we’ll hate in others.  To the degree that we have compassion for ourselves, we will also have compassion for others.  Having compassion starts and ends with having compassion for all those unwanted parts of ourselves, all those imperfections that we don’t even want to look at.  Compassion isn’t some kind of self-improvement project or ideal that we’re trying to live up to."

Just found out not only is there a National Grief Day - It is

Wednesday

August 30 

This is a wonderful day to

give awareness

to on a compassion thread .

I am quite sure this day deserves a thread of its own, though this thread is a wonderful place to give healthy attention to.

there is for the world , because everyone will experience this in different ways for different individuals in their own  life time
