Loving the Unlovable

Some people just make you so mad that you classify them as unlovable.  No matter what you do, they seem unapproachable, demeaning and critical.  Their way is the only way and their holier than thou attitude comes off as haute.  Do you know anyone like this? Maybe even more than one. If your life is miserable because of them, let’s explore ideas to help you  live with them and be content at the same time.  An oxymoron you say, not really.

In order to learn to be able to live with these people we need to set some groundwork first.  As is often true, one specific idea isn’t the answer but when you put several ideas together you create a plan that works. So let’s start with who you really are. 

If you have ever read any of Jerry and Esther Hicks’ books you  already know that Esther channels Abraham.  According to Abraham, all of us are eternal spiritual beings, who occasionally desire to add dimension to ourselves by entering the physical world.  So idea one is that we are spiritual beings living in a physical world.

Here on earth our physical bodies don’t allow us quite the same access to God and therefore we resist much of our spiritual knowledge in lieu of worldly knowledge.  As we grow from children into adults we assimilate more and more of what the physical world assumes as truth.  We allow our parents and our culture to dictate what is right and what is wrong.  We look outside ourselves for leadership instead of reaching inward to who we really are.  So idea two is to understand we have the ability to reference  knowledge thro our human nature as well as our spiritual nature but we most often make deisions based on our physical nature. 

Idea three is to reconcile our physical knowledge with your nonphysical knowledge. Doing so makes us complete.  Abraham explains this by saying that when we are in the spiritual dimension we do not “feel” separated from God because there is no resistance to receiving His knowledge. But the physical world creates resistance and so as we adopt more and more worldly views, the separation  from who we really are grows.  This separation causes negative feelings and we lose our way spiritually. 

If you want to feel complete you need to get back on the right track.   When you realize the answers the world presents aren’t necessarily the right ones for you and  investigate who you really are for the answer, you begin to reconcile your physical and nonphysical self. The right answer for you is always where these two parts agree.Therefore idea four is to find the common ground between physical and nonphysical knowledge.

The whole premise of this article is to find a way to love the unlovable.  By putting all the above ideas together you can see that when you are unable to feel love for another of God’s creations it is not a problem between you and them.  It is a problem between you and you.  You have allowed  someone else get between you physical self and who you really are instead of relying on your spiritual self for the guidance you need.  Your spiritual connection is always your best guidance system.  Do not allow what others think, do or say to interfere with what you already know is best for you. God is love and when you feel another is unlovable, you have allowed yourself to become separated from Him, which contributes to the hardship you experience in this plane. Stay connected with your inner spiritual guidance system so you can resume your proper course and love, love, love, even the unlovable. 

Peace and Love,

Katie

All the Answers

I don’t have all the answers and I don’t want to either.  I want to share just enough to help you realize that sadness and unhappiness don’t have to be your lot in life and guide you to ways to help you achieve transformation.The following are just a few methods that helped me with my transformation; The Law of Attraction, EFT, positive affirmations, spirituality, metaphysics, The Reconnection, and faith healing,  None of these methods are absolute, although positive affirmations  are high on the list, so today I want to concentrate on Biblically based positive affirmations.

An affirmation is a statement you deem to be true.  It can be positive or negative.   Most people base their lives on negative affirmations.  The evidence is everywhere.  People talk negatively about their jobs, about their families, about the government and even about themselves.  This negative thought pattern holds us back from finding real joy and experiencing total goodness in life. You might want to change your environment, but let’s start with changing you, for when you see things differently all of sudden things around you change.

God created us in His image which is a totally awesome thing, but what we do with that image is up to us.  I, for one, want a crisp, clear vision of who I really am.  That is the first step in overcoming adversity.  So to help me see myself more clearly, I did a Bible search and the following is just a snippet of what I found:

I am a child of God                                                                   John 1:12

I am chosen by God                                                                Colossians 3:12

I am righteous and holy                                                           Ephesians 4:24

I am a daughter of God                                                            Romans 8:14

I am a daughter of light, not darkness                                       1 Thessalonians 5:5

I am a member of a royal priesthood and a holy nation               1  Peter 2:9

I have been given the mind of Christ                                          1 Corinthians 2:16

I have direct access to God                                                      Ephesians 2:18

I have been given a spirit of love, power and  self-discipline          2 Timothy 1:7

I have the right to come boldly before the throne of God to find mercy and grace in time of need                                                                           Hebrews 4:16

By embracing these statements about myself, I gave myself permission to know that whatever anyone says about me or to me, I am still who I am; an awesome creation by God who deserves nothing but the best.  And what God says about me is also true about you. 

If you utilize these Biblical truths as a firm foundation,  you can create a list of affirmations which  reflect who you really are too.  If you need more, the Bible is full of them.  Go and check it out.  You might find some that are even more awesome than mine.  Reciting them everyday multiple times, is a way of filling your mind with the idea that you are someone special who deserves so much. 

Here is a list of how I see myself reflecting God’s image.  Feel free to use these positive affirmations for yourself.   

I let go and let God do His thing

I delight in doing the will of God

God loves me

God takes care of all my needs

I am loved by God who created me in His image

I am thankful for God’s endless treasures

I am wonderfully made

I am inspired by God

The love of God radiates through me

God fills me with joy

God has a plan for me

I love God and live my life based on my knowledge of Him

I base my confidence on God’s Word

I believe God’s promises are true

I am a perfect piece of God’s creation

Some of the above statements are similar but that is Ok. One statement may resonate well with one person’s soul, while a different statement saying the same thing in a different  way will resonate better with another person’s soul.  And that is the goal; to internalize these statements so that you believe them without a doubt.   I promise that using positive affirmations will change your outlook on life.  Just believe that what you are saying to yourself is true and all the answers you are seeking will come. 

Love and Peace my Friends,

Katie
