A Meditation for Today. ~ Sara Camiscioni

I want to share this inspirational meditation today.

It is centered around the relationship one has with oneself.

Our relationships with others, and our ability to fully love others, is directly related to our relationship and ability to love ourselves, and this is a zinger.

May we use this to start our day, grounding ourselves in the middle of our day, or to end of our day (depending on where we are in the world).

So let’s get comfy.

Relax.

Breath in and out through the nose—bringing awareness to the natural flow of breath.

Let these words ruminate over the body, then sit in silence with them, letting it settle.

If we find ourselves becoming distracted by thoughts, or noises around us, simply bring attention back to the breath and allow these thoughts to simply pass over.

Because one believes in oneself, one does not try to convince others.

Because one is content with oneself, one does not need others approval.

Because one accepts oneself, the whole world accepts him or her.

We expand and experience a sense of freedom in the moments that we open our hearts to ourselves.

Each time we give ourselves permission to accept who we are, in this very moment and with love and appreciation, the world around begins to transform.

Through stillness of meditation, we begin to clear a path that allows us to connect to our essential truth.

In these quiet moments of clarity, we have the opportunity to choose how we relate to ourselves.

Do we choose to love, accept, and celebrate ourselves?

Self acceptance begins when we expand beyond our thoughts and embrace ourselves, knowing that the glorys of creation are in our very cells—that we are made of the same essence as angels, the stars, and God itself.

From this place, we become one with our miraculous nature, and celebrate the wonder of living life as our authentic selves.

As you prepare for your meditation, invite the daily practice of gentle acceptance.

Drink in these words:

Today, I choose to accept myself. I am grateful for this moment.

Take this affirmation with you today. By consciously accepting yourself and adding gratitude to each day, we begin to witness a shift in our perceptions, and thus the world around us; aligning us with our authentic self, and transforming the relationships we have in our lives.

Have a blessed day.
