What emotions or initial reactions surface when you read the headline to this article? Are you aware of any internal resistance or mental chatter that says “yeah right?” You are perfect the way you are – since that’s the way you are!
While I don’t mean to sound condescending or trivial, you are perfect as you’re the universal expression of perfection. You were born with the perfect set of genes and a mind and body that defy anything man could manufacture.
Your mission is to embrace your perfection by evolving into it – emotionally, mentally and physically. Using your universal gifts, it’s possible to harness the inner resolve to bring about the changes you wish. You see, the universe wants for you what you want for yourself.
The desire for material possessions to fill an emotional void is not the basis for universal principles, unless you align yourself with the giving of service.
Your happiness lies dormant within – it seeks you as much as you seek it. In order to find this source of happiness, align yourself with the authentic inner self to manifest it with ease and perfection.
Below are three points guiding you to your perfection. Consider them next time you’re in a rut or feeling fragile about your sense of self worth.
1. The universe doesn’t make mistakes
How can the same universal force which allows the sun to rise each morning, birds to fly in perfect orchestration and the beating of your heart be anything less than perfect? Many of us fail to consider the miracle of these events in our lives. We tune out, failing to be aware of the miracle that unfolds before us.
Observe a young child stare in awe at these miracles – such as seeing an animal in a zoo for the first time. There’s a beauty in the unknown to children as evident by the passage looking through a child’s eyes. My young nephew of just two years marvels in awe everytime he sees a garbage truck pass by his home. He ceases to tire of it, as evident by his mum and dad taking him outside early mornings to witness the truck collect garbage.
When you appreciate there is something greater than science can prove operating in the universe, you undoubtedly surrender to that same force. Our minds are not well equipped to comprehend that there is a mysterious process which unfolds perfectly and in right timing.
Recall the last time you thought of someone and later bumped into them in the street? These have become normal occurrences for me. I feel an inner nod when these events take place, for they are more than just coincidence – rather synchronicity.
Love is another universal mystery. How can anyone prove the existence of love? Sure, you may recite the chemical reaction that takes place between two people experiencing love, but where does love reside? Is it in the human heart? Or is it within the realm of consciousness? Are we tapping into it when we align ourselves with this benevolent force? Why has science yet to prove it?
The point worth making is that there’s a great deal both humanity and science are yet to quantify and measure – however are prevalent in our everyday lives.
2. Embrace your own perfection
Do you embrace your own perfection or find fault in the physical aspects of your body? I recall years ago during my teens working in a men’s exclusive shoe store. We sold the finest leather shoes imported from around the world. I recall speaking with the sales representative from one of the shoe companies about the imperfections I noted on a number of high ticketed shoes.
He reassured me that they were markings made from the animal rubbing itself against a fence or tree. They were a desirable quality that buyers valued in a shoe. You never knew where the imperfection was or even if the blemish was apparent on all shoes.
Once the manufacturer received the hide for processing, it was a matter of luck if a customer purchased a shoe with the marking. I’m also aware of the same feature prominent in women’s handbags.
What most people deem defective is in fact a desirable quality. Using that analogy, how are you able to view your imperfections as ideal? Cosmetic surgery is never the answer to alter what you dislike about yourself. I’m yet to meet a person whom I found less appealing from the inside out. We are naturally drawn to one another’s inner landscape. Sure aesthetics matters, but your inner self is where the true beauty lies.
3. See the perfection in others
Do you see the beauty in others or are you drawn to their outer appearance? Whilst you may be initially drawn to their outer appearance with the passing of timing, you become acquainted with the whole person.
Having developed my intuition over the years, I am more aware of the energy of others these days. I’ve become attuned to notice the other’s person’s energy in various parts of my body – much like a magnet. Whist I acknowledge that I am by no means psychic, my intuition or gut instincts allows me to be aware of other people’s energy field.
For example if I meet someone whom I don’t connect with (mentally and emotionally), I feel a strong headache pulsate toward the rear of my head. This is also accompanied by the need to remove myself from the encounter. Alternatively, meeting someone of a higher vibration, I’m aware of lightness around my heart. I notice a tingly sensation all over which is accompanied by a sense of warmth and familiarity.
The message is to become aware of the beauty in others, rather than perceive their flaws. I’m not suggesting that if you encounter someone negative, that you remain in their company in order to see the beauty in them. That would be impractical as you would be doing yourself a disservice.
If someone is indifferent to you, look for qualities in that person that are favourable. There’s always an opportunity to appreciate something in others – even when we have to look hard. Remember what you see in others is already apparent in you.
Recognising the quality in others suggests somewhere in your awareness is the identification of the same attribute.
Begin to see the beauty in others. Even if you can’t find one positive thing about them, use the following thought pattern instead of a negative one – “that person was interesting.” This creates a neutral observation in your mind and a useful way of seeing the world.
Wherever you are in your life’s journey, be it young or old trust that you are infinitely perfect just the way you are. Accepting this way of thinking creates more of the same energy in your consciousness.
It is neither conceited nor egoic to regard yourself in high esteem. It becomes ego centred when you think yourself better than others.
Embrace yourself as the universal perfection forever evolving. You are work in progress that is flawless. Allow your inner beauty and genius to manifest and in doing so, give permission for others to do the same.
