You always have been. But, if you haven't been truly told that, you wouldn't know. First off let me say that I didn't understand I was loved either. I mean not outside of working for it constantly and most of the time coming up short.
This was a few years ago and I was coming out of a bad divorce. I was in need to really feel as if I was worth something to someone. I was in desperate need of help at one point and sought out a Healer. We talked for quite a while and on my way out she simply said, "You Are Loved."
OK, so yeah. We all hear those words. We all hear them within different scenarios. Most of the time we get to a point where we will do almost everything to catch that feeling of "love".But, how many of you have actually heard those words in a pure form coming from a complete stranger who has nothing to gain from you? I sure hadn't.
I remember standing in her driveway trying to find the right words to say... (I mean really, do you say "I love you" back or what.....?) I started to tear up instead, gave her a weak smile, and said thank you. I walked away changed but not knowing by how much. Her making that statement by far has had the biggest impact on my life.
I mean, I didn't do or say anything to earn that..... So how did she know I was deserving of this?
It was because she, herself, had found the truth and was willing to show me the same truth before I left her home that day.
It made me realize over the course of a few years that I was allowed to accept myself and be Loved without needing to hear it from the world. The truth was I was already Loved far beyond what any human here on this earth could ever let me experience.
But, I had to be reminded of this fact, so simple but so important. Reminded first of the truth that we are all from the same mold, and no one person or experience can take that original FORM from you.
