Wow, we’re already near the end of week 2! I’m so glad to be on this journey with you!
Thank you for your commitment to this practice. I applaud you for your desire to deepen your connection to your true self daily.
I believe it is one of the most important and valuable things you can do for yourself and others. I’m grateful for you.
Here’s another thought from Claude Bristol to follow up from yesterday:
“Every person is the creation of himself, the image of his own thinking and believing. As individuals think and believe, so they are.”
Every single time you think, “I love myself,” you create that as a deeper reality. You combat those lies of, “I’m not worthy,” and, “I can’t do it,” that make you feel like hating yourself.
You are the creation of yourself.
You get to choose what thoughts you will entertain.
If you are busy thinking empowering truths, guess what? There’s no room left for the false and limiting beliefs to rear their ugly heads.
When you have a song stuck in your head that you are sick of…how do you get rid of that endless loop?
You just turn on a song that you like!
The two songs won’t fit together at the same time in your mind.
It’s the same principle here. By barraging ourselves with, “I love myself,” throughout the day we leave no room for self-degradation.
That’s also one of the great reasons to repeat the affirmations of truth we began with in book one of this series: “Everything is conspiring for my benefit,” and, “This is a truly amazing life.”
Any and all empowering, positive truths you can actively program your mind with will do the job of keeping negativity out and creating beauty in your life.
Your mind is your tool to wield and control.
You are the master…not those random wandering thoughts.
I truly hope you are connecting to your true self each day.
I hope you are finding it easier each day to look deep in your eyes and see the majesty, the beauty, and the power within you.
I hope you are overcome with humility and gratitude for what you see, and the gift of life you have been given.
I want to hear from you. How is it going? Send me an email at email@example.com and let me know.

As the TAL Family, when we collectively share our truths, and the experiences we are having, it expands the consciousness and awareness of those around us.
We are all better for that.
One real possibility I recognize though, is that you may be struggling still to look in your eyes and see beauty.
You may be heavily weighed down with either guilt, sorrow, or shame, somewhere deep inside, which makes it very difficult to look in your eyes and say, “I love you,” and actually mean it.
You may not even know why you feel this way.
This practice could very well have exposed some deep, dark feelings that you have unconsciously suppressed for many years.
Please don’t give up if that’s what is happening for you!
That is a very good thing actually!
It is extremely common actually for people who begin this practice, to struggle severely with it at first. Some have shared that they break down in tears the minute they look in their eyes and have to look away.
If that’s you, please don’t give up! This is so important for you.
You are uncovering deep wounds that have been buried and festering for a long time.
And those wounds will continue to infect your life with sadness, misery, and suffering in different ways until you heal them with the truth.
It hurts to dig into wounds, so we all naturally turn away from doing it.
Be strong! You can do this. Know that you are on the right path, and DO IT ANYWAY.
If it hurts to look in your own eyes…DO IT ANYWAY! That’s when you need You most!
You are on the path to freedom.
I love you. You are worthy. Despite what the ego and the false programming in your head may tell you, you are amazing.
And you are going to see that very clearly at some point, probably soon. And you will shed tears of joy when you do!
You’ll get a break from my messages tomorrow. I’ll be back in two days.
Keep up your habits!
Reflect morning and night! Don’t let up now…you are almost half-way. Commit to being diligent for the rest of the month.
And be compassionate to yourself and all others when you fail.
Be kind, merciful, and forgiving. That is the way to true happiness.
Make today amazing!
