Loving Yourself

by Linda
(Australia)


To know that a healing path is available to all so we may evolve as spiritual beings after years of child sexual abuse is a blessing. I did not seek it...somehow it found me and I had to understand my sanity so went on a spiritual journey reading most every book I could get my hands on. Dreams were lucid and exciting so kept a dream journal. Psychic experiences became more profound. Intuition/Clairaudience was amazing. Love not Fear was the answer to everything. Experiencing Bliss and Joy as my main emotion. Friends would say " I want what you've got" My connection to spirit/god/higher power...my strength. I started meditating, automatic writing and have written one poem below that I hope you enjoy:


Loving Yourself

Speak with me of love
Let the passion fill your cup
A heart that breaks no longer
Resilience tested by worldly pain
Don't need to learn that lesson again
The love of who you are remains

My trust was non existent, but now trust God to guide me. My friends are few. I connect with nature and still trying to rid myself of self damaging behaviours.
