Say “Yes!” to Yourself

posted by Melanie Lutz

“Surrender your defenses and open your heart. It is okay. You are not alone. You are not alone in your feelings, You are not alone in your joy, You are connected in that space of the heart. In accepting your feelings as part of the wholeness of who you are, in saying “Yes!” to all of you. You are releasing any judgment taking the largest step into self love.”

Sometimes I start somewhere like today, with the topic of acceptance and it provides a point of entry, a point of dropping into the wave of the movement that is necessary for the work to express itself on the page. It is a profound part of the writing process, those moments where the discipline of the hours and the gravity of the mechanism that has developed expresses its weight and density to bring forth realizations and truths. You can never predict what will happen, it is often a surprise but it is wholly known. When I was in full swing of the concept of Acceptance, everything necessary for this moment dropped forward and came through bringing with it a heart felt movement.

When I am in this space I find it helpful to open up a blank page, a space where I am totally free to go in a different direction and allow the feelings of the deeper waters to take hold to move the work forward.

To be afforded insight into the human heart, to be able to bare witness to the light bulb moments, reconnecting and resurrecting parts of myself that had long lay dormant, unearthing them through this lovely process of feelings working like sweat detoxing whatever weighs me down, is an intense workout. When I look at it as a workout life becomes easier to pick up and carry not as a weight but as a full out adventure.

It helps me stay in touch with my feelings. I now know they are important. They are not who I am.

Who I am is saying a full and resounding “YES!” to myself. Exactly as I am. Right now.

Enjoy this opportunity to share who you are, a most fabulous work in progress in this moment unfolding as beautifully and magnificently as a rose opening its heart.

Wishing you a Wonderful New Day!
