Everyone in this world is worthy of love, and that includes you. The great thing about love is, that its abundance—it does not run out—and you can start with this spiritual law which is to: “love thyself. Let the truth be told that, surely, you cannot love anyone until you love yourself.”
Self-Love is totally in your control. It is a choice that you can make every day, as well as a shift in how you view love. If you can love yourself deeply and truly, you will generate plenty of love for the world around you, and you will start to see yourself as being entirely worthy of love, in return.
You are worthy of love. Let me say it again. You are worthy of love! What happens inside when you hear that statement? “You are worthy of Love.” Does your heart open up and do you breathe a sigh of relief? Or do you immediately say to yourself “yeah right” and shut down?
For years I cringed inside when anyone suggested that I was worthy of love. I really wanted to believe it was true and felt I “should love myself”, but deep inside I felt so unworthy.
I thought that everything about me had to change in order for me to be worthy of love.
When I lost the weight, then I would be worthy. When I wasn’t so self-conscious, when I had the career I wanted, when I was more interesting…the list went on and on.
Underneath it all, was this deeply limiting belief that: When I became perfect, I would be worthy of love. Until then, I didn’t really deserve it. Until one day, somebody told me about the sun. And they said: The sun shines equally on everything on the planet.
It doesn’t pick and choose where to shine its rays based on how good or bad things are. It just gives its warmth equally. And this got me thinking. Maybe love was like the sun. And maybe it had been shining on me all along, I just couldn’t see it.
My rain clouds of unworthiness had been blocking it from my view. So I made a decision in my Foundations class in 1999, to look with the eyes of love and pay attention to all of the love that was coming into my life. And each time I felt love I would say to myself, “Tynya, you have this love because you deserve it.” Pretty soon I started to feel more worthy. Not because anything about me changed, but because I made a decision to let it in.
Have you decided that you are not worthy of love right now because you have to “do or be something”, before you deserve it? If so, please consider that the only thing you have to do is allow yourself to be loved right now, just as you are. And the only thing you have to be, is you. Need proof?
Think of a newborn baby. Would you ever think this to yourself: “That baby doesn’t deserve love? It’s not perfect.” I’m guessing no. You would probably say that even if it cries and spits and screams, that little baby deserves all the love in the world. Guess what? You’re just a grown up baby!
You were worthy of love from the moment you were born and that hasn’t changed. You are worthy of love simply because you are here. Love is all around you and when you remove the blocks of unworthiness and decide you deserve it just because, it will show up in miraculous ways. Will you let it in?
