Carolyn Cooper, our official Energy Healing Expert
Start by giving yourself unconditional love. You can't totally love and accept others when you have negative self-talk going on. After years of working with many clients in the field of Energy Healing, I am convinced that the #1 common denominator in every issue is the lack of self- worth, self-acceptance, self-love. Love is what we were born with; fear is what we have learned here. Our spiritual journey is to let go of the fear in order to accept the love back into our hearts. Recognize that we don't make any mistakes we don't need to in order to learn the lessons that are necessary for our growth. Listen to the lesson, forgive yourself, and move forward with love.
We all know the best way to lift ourselves when we are down is by giving service to someone else. It's a universal law; you can't bless the life of another without receiving blessings in return. It is as if we are all connected (which we are) by an invisible thread, and each time we lift another, we too are lifted. Likewise, each time we put someone else down, we also bring ourselves down. Helping a fellow-being, whether friend or stranger, is truly the best thing to do when you feel sorry for yourself. It opens your heart by helping you realize there are others in less fortunate circumstances right now than you.
