Those loving feelings

Never ever can you have a "wrong" feeling. There are only feelings that feel good, and feelings that feel bad. There are feelings that expand your soul, and feelings that cause you to contract. In every case, however, your feelings are attempting to guide you to love yourselves more kindly.

So no matter what you are feeling, take a breath, and first of all, accept yourself, as you are. Give yourself the gift of compassion. Today I am happy! Today I am sad. In this moment I am angry. I am tired. You cannot find the love within you unless you give yourself love and compassion first.

Then ask yourself, simply, "Joy / Anger / Sadness / etc... how are you trying to teach me to be kinder to myself?" Joy might say, "Yes, more of this please!" Sadness might say, "I need a hug dear angels, dear friend, dear spouse..." Anger might say, "I really want better treatment. I must treat myself differently / change my behaviors / set a boundary."

In no circumstance ever do we suggest you blame a feeling on another human being. Others trigger these feelings, but these feelings are inside of you. They are always, at some level – whether obvious or not – a cry for more love. So bless even those who inspire sadness or anger, for example, because they are exposing areas in your soul that need greater love. Perhaps the greater love is to reach out; perhaps to walk away, but in each case you have been forced to look at something inside of yourself that was not previously loved and now wishes to be loved.

Your feelings aremessengers from the soul. Pay attention to their messages and they will dissipate into a greater light. Ignore them and they will spiral beyond their original usefulness. Everything, dear ones, ... absolutely everything, is conspiring to reveal more love.
