Checking In!

I am willing to take responsibility for healing me.
I trust myself to love myself and love you the best I know.
I forgive myself for all mistakes of omission and commission.
I love myself as I am, mistakes and all.

We are the same, you and I.
We are all in this together.

I am checking in with me and you, too.
One person hurt or offended is a call to stop, look and listen within.
One person expressing anger or upset is a call to check in with ourselves.
One person feeling unheard or misunderstood is a wakeup call.

If everyone is a part of me, then true in-to-me-see (intimacy) is listening within to me.
I sometimes make mistakes and everything can be used for good.
I sometimes am too fast and everything is a wakeup call.
I sometimes am misunderstood and everything offers an opportunity to heal.

When either one of us says or does something that comes from fear, we are not clear.
When we make the mistake of not fully listening to the call for love, we may miss understand.
When I come from a spiritual thinking place, I may be misunderstood for not having compassion.
When you come from a human feeling place, you may feel you need to be heard and validated.

Life is an intriguing and complex sorting of thoughts, feelings, activities and ideas.
Human beings are often not really hearing or feeling themselves and their own needs.
The best we can do is to be our own best friend, listening and loving ourselves with compassion.
Each one of us comes from our own unique history, beliefs, experiences and choices.

On a rare occasion someone reaches me and teaches me to “Stop, look and listen.”
When anyone is upset, it is a call for love for me and from me to everyone.
And so I respond with the greatest Love I know….the Love of God..the Love of Good.
I do my very best and God does the rest, because in my heart my intention is only Good.

Everyone has wounds and touchy spots where without awareness we may push buttons.
When this happens to me, I pay attention and  stop, look within and listen to my need.
I heal myself without judging or blaming others, because I am responsible and able to respond to me.
When this happens to others, I forgive my lack of awareness and send them blessings for healing.

You see when you hurt, I hurt.
When you heal, I am healed.
When we work together to return to Love, we remember our wholeness.
And for this and so much more, I give thanks.

Truly loving you with all the awareness in myself,
Betty Lue

The Gift You Are
You are the gift.

In your healing, I am healed.

In your smiling, I find joy.

In your learning, I am filled with wisdom.

In your free expressions, I am empowered.

In your abundance, I too prosper.

In your spontaneity, I am set free.

In your joy, I know heaven.

And so it is that you give your Self to me

And I receive you with love and gratitude.

I am the gift I give to You

And I fully receive the gift I freely give.

As I know You, I know my Self.

As I give to you, I receive all good.

As I support you, I am supported by the Universe.

As I honor and respect you, I experience gratitude in all my being.

As I love you, I am loving all of God's creation.

I know you and believe in you.

I honor, respect and support you in being.

In you and me is all the Universe.

We are gifts to one another.
