Judgment the cause?

March 8, 2016

Hi Everyone,

How’s the Christmas Challenge coming? Anything fabulous showing up because you’re now in the habit of silently saying to everyone you meet: “You are perfect just the way you are, and I love you.”?

I’ve noticed two things:

  • Life seems to flow with less struggle
  • And, I’ve become very aware of all my judgmental thinking.

The judgmental thinking has been a big “Wow”.

I stand in total amazement of the mental chatter that constantly goes through my mind that hasn’t a thing to do with acceptance or compassion.

People Feel
The thing is that even if you don’t voice those judgments, people feel them.

We actually feel now others really think about us; they don’t have to say a word.

People feel it when you are criticizing or failing to understand their view of a situation.

People consult with me when their life is in turmoil.  When we meet via telephone for a session with me, you and the angels, we ask to be taken to the source of the difficulty, and we are.

However, as I have dealt with my judgments and criticalness, a new cause or source has appeared.

New Cause
So, could your judgments of others be the reason your business isn’t getting off the ground, or you’re having career/employment problems, or you’re lonely?

To find out, I’m issuing a new challenge:

For the rest of this year, I offer only acceptance and compassion to all I meet. I immediately send my judgments, my criticisms, my doubts back to the nothingness from whence they came. I stand guard on my tongue, my thoughts and my feelings.

And, of course, there is no way I could even begin to do this without help from the angels.

Angels of All of Us
Angels of all of us,

Thank you for causing us to see a possible cause of our suffering. Wow! What a revelation!

The cause is us.

So, as of right here and right now, we pledge to offer only acceptance and compassion to all we meet. We know that you stand with us and will guide us as we learn how to do this.

And, we know that you will first teach us to accept ourselves and to give ourselves compassion.

We are open to doing this. We are open to being an accepting, welcoming, compassionate people.

Wow!

Thank you for reminding us that there is a Power for Good in the Universe and all of us can use it to bring good into our own life.

Being accepting and compassionate brings good. It is a use of this Power for Good.

We give thanks that we know this and that you stand with us.

And so it is.

In the spirit of my Christmas Challenge: You are perfect just the way you are, and I love you.

Let Go of Toxicity

Feb. 14, 2014

Hi,

I’ve just listened to a story I constantly hear:

My client desperately seeks acceptance from those who want nothing to do with her.  This person has been tormented by this group for years.  She can’t accept that this group has closed its doors to her, that they enjoy her discomfort and that they purposefully go about the business of making her miserable.

This group is the popular one, the one everyone wants to be part of.  My client can’t see that the members of this group are mean and toxic.  In fact, they are aggressively abusive to not only my client but to many others.

You see, my client can’t stand rejection or aloneness.

One Solution

Even though she’s been advised to find new interests and to participate in new activities; even though it’s been explained to her that by so doing she will find new friends, she still returns to this same story, this same group.  Her actions remind me of an addict’s: they know the substance is harmful, but return to it over and over.

Let us ask the angels to help us let go of toxicity, accept change and do what is best for us.

Ask the Angels

Angels of all of us,

Sometimes, we humans constantly beat our heads against the same door.  We do this even when it’s obvious that our heads are getting hurt.

Help us to recognize that if the door is meant for us, it will open easily and quickly as soon as we knock.

Turn us from doors that are toxic, that bring us harm and that cause us unhappiness.  Lead us to doors that welcome us, that cause us be in touch with those who accept us and that bring the true joy of knowing that we are the beloved of God.

Angels of all of us, this is Barbara.  I speak the word for all of us who are open and receptive to it.  I speak for all who desire the truth, for it is from the truth that health, prosperity, healthy relationships and success comes.

Angels of all of us,

Right here and now, we leave the cliques who torture us, who reject us, who behave aggressively toward us.  We stand tall as our own person, a person blessed by many talents and gifts, a person who is the beloved of God.

We accept our role as creators, organizers and leaders.  We recognize that we are valuable and have no need to beg anyone for acceptance.

We rejoice in who we are.  We give thanks for your support and nurturance.  We are grateful for who we are.

And so it is.

Peace,

Barbara
