Most will agree that we live in a world in which outside manifestation and accomplishments are given much more attention and rewards than any inner changes. We admire other people’s ability To climb a mountain, to win a race, to grow a business, maybe to gain better health, become someone in the community that’s more respected, create art, music, writing, and the list goes on.
While all of these accomplishments are wonderful, and we are here to manifest and create our dreams, there is very little if no recognition given to the inner accomplishments. When was the last time you were admired for becoming more self-loving? Or releasing an emotional trauma that has been with you for a while? Do any of your friends or neighbors recognize in you the spiritual warrior that you are? That you have worked lifetimes to allow your spirit into your physical reality? That you are carving out a road that no one has taken before you? That you are altering the current mass consciousness as we speak? That you are a pioneer and in the forefront of the Ascension movement?
That you have taken so many spiritual and emotional risks to get to where you are today? No, I doubt if anyone in your family or community would really understand your personal accomplishments in that area. I don’t mention this so that you can feel resentful, but so that you can begin to give yourself the credit you are due. The odds that were against you from early on, and how you’ve moved through so much and are still here is testimony to your inner resolve. Have you been patting yourself on the back for everything you have done, and for all the inner changes you have gone through? Because if you’re waiting for anyone else to do it for you, you will be waiting a very long time.
To your mind it may not seem that you have accomplished as much as you think. But just remember the mind has been conditioned to see accomplishments as an outer manifestation. As you are moving into the new energy, every cell of your body is transforming. Your consciousness is transforming. You are releasing old patterns and systems of beliefs. The outer needs time to catch up with the inner. It does no good to be hard on yourself because you think you should have more physical manifestations by now. Sometimes these things take longer because the physical is the last to catch up with the inner changes. And while outer rewards for physical accomplishments are wonderful, it is time to give ourselves the awards and rewards for all of our consciousness work.
What we are learning is that simply by existing, we are worthy of anything we desire. We are learning that creating does not need to be hard work. That manifesting can come from joy. The journey has to be joyful. In actuality there is no need for competition or for evaluating the level of accomplishments, even the inner ones. That is all duality thinking. But meanwhile, do give yourself credit where credit is due, dear light worker. Take a walk down the Red Carpet and receive the award for being you.
