I am delighted to know the developer of this bear Dee Wallace and her dedication to self empowerment, self healing and well being. She has being a very special mentor guide and light in my own life over these latter years. Dee is also a actor and is best known for her acting role as the mother in the movie E.T. many years ago. I think it was the early 90's it came out. Last year I got to stay with Dee when I visited L.A. for a few days and join in one of her trainings she was hosting from her home.
Getting back to my main topic I want to discuss that this bear has inspired today LOVE of self. Just to recap SELF LOVE it's that thing the majority of us learnt from a very young age you are not suppose to do because it is selfish and you should feel guilty for it if you dared, we learnt it from our parents and they learnt it from their and so on back and back to gods knows when...Too fricken long I say and its mega time for a overhaul !
Well I have some great news for you and all little human angels, it is not selfish and actually the opposite is a higher truth in my own discovery. The reason for this is because only when we truly love and accept thy (our) self, can we truly love others without conditions...makes sense RIGHT ! When our own love for self is conditional then our love for others is also conditional, this is just how it works. It is a universal law of what we are in thought~word and deed, we give out and that in turn is what we get back in our experiences to reflect what we are and so then we get to know thy self that way. Once we come to understand what we do not prefer to experience in our life's, we can then reorientate our preferences and values from the power of free will choice to think and act differently in accordance with preferred life experience.
How many conditions do we really have on our own love of self ? I will love and accept myself when I am that certain weight, muscle tone, fitness, have that much money, be that level of success ....etc etc So many conditions on our love and support of oneself & this has been considered normal in our daily world ....WHAT THE FUNK ! ! ! Hey I was brought up in a Irish Catholic family and I got to experience this in a full out way, there was no self love in my family growing up or that in the larger community that I can recall. My self image as a youngster was so distorted I had to look in the mirror to remind myself I actually wasn't as bad as my inner self felt about myself inside and that in actuality I was picking up from all those people around me in my environment.
Did you know that much of our personality, beliefs and perceptions about life are all imprinted within our subconscious before the ages of 5 - 7 years old. That is why often even in our growth up years we have 2 and 3 year old reactions and response to things that seem out of proportion to the actual event happening. This is because it is literally a child like perception that is in reaction to something and if that reaction had been judged bad or repressed over the younger years, it may just be ready to explode a little don't you think !
Well all that handing down of the conditions on our love are on there way out as we open up to new paradigms and ways of understanding THY SELF in the light of godliness and move beyond the old harshness, judgements, illusions of separation and not being good enough as core beliefs and perceptions imprinted from a young innocence age before the intellect kicked in and innocence was king.
Here is one cuddling little bear to change that, imagine supporting your child to know it is OK to love thy self and to be encouraged and supported to grow that love daily. Imagine naturally seeing the love being shared through a continuously healed, happy, open heart and soul into teenage years and adulthood.
