A Note from Rev. Nickie:
Self-awareness is our ability to turn our attention inward to explore our inner worlds. When we can do this from a consciousness of curiosity, we can learn vast amounts about ourselves. Most of us have learned to look at ourselves from a perspective of blame and criticism. If this is our come from, the process will not be much fun. However, when we can look at ourselves from a consciousness of curiosity, we can have fun exploring. Let’s try this on for a moment. Identify three things you appreciate about yourself:
Now, get curious. When did these appreciations show up in your life? How often do you focus on self-appreciation? What other parts of your life can you appreciate? Many people think that appreciating themselves is selfish. However, self-appreciation is one step in the process of self-love. Permit yourself daily to appreciate yourself in your meditations or some other aspect of your life.
