[What did I learn today? Lessons on the Journey to Unconditional Self Love] You are it

Ready to address that which she had attempted to avoid Ready to embrace that which she had attempted to deny She placed all other distractions aside And finally committed to her relationship with herself Natalie Stewart

Readiness - the definition of readiness is willingness to do something

Are you willing? - free from reluctance?

That is all it takes I have learnt- the mind shift that says I am no longer
reluctant to do this new thing, this different thing no matter what I am no
longer reluctant, I am ready.

To do something different takes a change of mind, a feeling of belief and
ACTION, dare to believe

I have been having some serious challenges with abundance and I learnt the

The whole abundance and manifestation thing I had it backward

I was searching outside of myself, I thought, ok if I get these things,
these symbols it would give me permission to feel abundant

I believed that I needed to have the thing to be it

And so I was chasing- chasing after the things, the symbols instead of
believing that I am it, newsflash I am it!

if you are it, you manifest it but most importantly you keep it

I thought ok if I get the house and car and stuff It would give me
permission to think that I was abundant

If I get the fit and sexy body it would give me permission to think that I
was sexy

If I get the specific job it would give me permission to think I was

If I get the relationship it would give me permission to think that I am

Life does not work that way I have learnt

Its not - you get the stuff and because you get the stuff you get to be it

I am it!

I am love

I am abundance

I am enough

Hey the question is am I willing to be it, to believe it?

The biggest challenge is believing and shifting how I think about myself
