Your Identity?

I AM more than I can see.
I Am a gift of Love, here to heal and reveal my true Self.
I Am a piece of the Universal Goodness, Abundance and Love.
I seek to know and live my true Identity with all I think and say and do.

Have You Lost Your Identity?

Do you know Who You Are?
Has the world robbed you of what is true?
Have you forgotten or ignored your real identity?
Are you willing to reclaim the truth about You?

We have a body.  We are not our Body.
We have a mind.  We are not our mind.
We have a personality. We are not our personality.
We have a history. We are not history or our stories.

People often take on the identity of their parents.
Children believe what people say about them.
We live in a world bombarded with judgmental descriptions.
Have you believed everything anyone has projected onto you?

We get confused by the idea we are our body.
Then we try to embellish the body to be perfect.
We adorn the body with stuff to make it attractive.
We think if our body is loved and adored, so are we.

We get distracted by thinking we are our intelligence quotient.
We identify with what is our IQ and how smart we are
We may believe it is our education and our degrees that define us.
We make up our ability to learn is our identity.

We may be defined by our personality, both positive and negative.
We may believe our popularity is our identity.
We seek others’ approval and admiration.
We may feel how much we are loved by others defines us.

Our body, our mind, our personality we have and wear, but they are not our true identity.
We enjoy being seen as beautiful, smart and lovable.
When we are defined by these external qualities, we may be distracted and forget our true self.
We may fear losing our beauty, our intelligence and our lovability.

What if our true identity is not our body, our mind or our emotional state?
What if our true identity is unchanging and the original blessing of our creation?
What if we have lost our identity when we set it aside for how others defined us?
What if we can return and reclaim and remember ourselves now or anytime we choose?

The way we identify ourselves defines how we see and feel about ourselves.
Who we relate to as our parents and birthright gives us the picture we carry about ourselves.
How we think of and talk to ourselves gives us the inner and outer image of how we show up.
When we step away and see ourselves rightly, we remember we are born of Love as Love.

If you see yourself as a product of your parents, education and worldly experiences, let go.
If you see yourself as limited by the body and mind you have, forgive yourself.
If you have defined your self worth by your history, please release false thinking.
You are a child of Infinite Love, born to be unlimited in power and in peace.

The Essence of you shines bright within you.
You cam to be the Love you are.
Trust in the Presence of Love within.
You are the Gift, the Blessing you seek to be.

Believing in you, as you set yourself free to fully be.

The 12 Principles of Attitudinal Healing By Jerry Jampolsky, MD and ACIM

1.       The essence of our being is love.
2.       Health is inner peace, healing is letting go of fear.
3.       Giving and receiving are the same.
4.       We can let go of the past and of the future.
5.       Now is the only time there is, and each instant is for giving.
6.       We can learn to love ourselves and others by forgiving rather than by judging.
7.       We can become love finders rather than fault finders.
8.       We can choose and direct ourselves to be peaceful inside, regardless of what is happening outside.
9.       We are students and teachers to each other.
10.    We can focus on the whole of life, rather than the fragments.
11.    Since love is eternal, change need not be viewed as fearful.
12.    We can always perceive others as either extending love or giving a call for help.

Attitudinal Healing affirms that we are responsible for our thoughts and whatever feelings we experience.
Attitudinal Healing encourages us to re-examine our relationships, bringing them into the present by releasing past judgments and grievances.
Attitudinal Healing reminds us that perception is a mirror of what is in our mind.
