Can you see your own greatness?

Sunday, March 18, 2007

What a loaded question huh. I want to quickly say yes!!! But 2 months ago, I would have quickly wanted to say no. But then today i was listening to a deva premal cd while taking and bath and just singing my little heart out. And i got out of the tub and i was myself int he mirror. (luckily it isn't a full length mirror). And I tried to look myself in the eyes. After all, i just had some proufnd experiences, I am making significant personal and spiritual, and mental health gains. I even feel like I can finally say I am worthy and I love myself. So, i remembered this suggested exercise where you look yourself in the eyes in the mirror. And I tried it. And it isn't easy. And I was suprised. Why was it difficult??? Perhaps it is because I am still learning that I am worthy and that I love myself. Perhaps I am afraid of my own greatness. I don't know. But I know that I am still "in the flow". And I am still exstatic (even if i can't spell it). And I watched Wayne Dyer on pbs today and it reminded me again of all I find to be true. And it got me excited all over again about the journey practitioner program that i am in. And I feel inspired and hopeful. So, I will let it be what it is. And I guess I will just have to practice looking into my eyes in the mirror.

I wish you all well on your journey,

    Wow, what a powerful question.

    I am not afraid of my own greatness, just ask my wife (LOL).

    What I am afraid of is my own failure. I have the classic prefectionist syndrome in many areas of my life, except my health (all aspects). One of my triggers is the failures of the past creeping up on me. I think about the times when I have been in good physical health and how that was washed away.

    Now as I am writing this, maybe I am afraid of what I can acheive. I have acheived sucess in the past with my health (all aspects). But never all aspects at the same time. I am going to try looking at myself in the mirror and see what happens.

    Thanks for the inspiration.

    Ohh wow Tami..

    Namaste...that alone, I do Namaste Yoga when I can....hmmm
    we share so much and I had to find YOUR BLOG...ha ha ha

    I can see your greatness in so many ways! And yes we as women especially get hung up on that body image and facing ourselves
    I talk to myself and wish often I had written it down. You are! You are going to love it when you look back upon your journey. The eyes are the mirrors of our soul. And then there are those few that have gotten really good at even closing that part of us off. And then there are those that need the shades to wear so no one can look.
    I love it that you are so excited to be on YOUR JOURNEY. I am glad you are wishing us well on our journey, how about you wish yourself well on yours?

    isn't it time you do so?
    just as it it time you are practicing to look at yourself into your eyes? can do it!

    Love and hugs
