I’m welcoming in the world these days in many ways; big and small, internally and externally. While I’m focusing on welcoming in the world, it’s reminding me of the importance of welcoming myself.
Not just once or twice or occasionally.
Welcome yourself daily to your own world. This can feel awkward, strange, selfish, weird. Many were not welcomed to the world or have not felt welcomed through their lives.
Now is the time to change this. Welcome yourself to your own world. Invite yourself in, in your entirety. Soften your heart to yourself. Inquire of yourself, Where do I need healing? Send your love there. The love you give so freely to other people, give it to yourself.
This can be done physically by tuning in to your body and allowing it time and space to grow, heal, strengthen.
It can be done mentally by meditating and practicing mindfulness through our daily lives. It can be done emotionally by allowing yourself to feel whatever it feels. Allow the range of emotions and not just the ones that feel good. Allow yourself to be, encourage yourself to grow, support yourself in every stage.
Welcome yourself to your own world. Then welcome the world in to meet you.
