With Mother’s Day being last Sunday, I was recently thinking about some of the best things that my mom taught me growing up. I haven’t had the chance to write on my blog the things I have wanted to express recently, since I’ve been working on my final 20 page Transpersonal Integration Thesis Paper. I will be graduating next month with my Master’s of Arts in Transpersonal Psychology. After two years of studying in sixteen countries, I am SO excited to almost be done! ^.^
The 5 most important things my mom taught me directly:
1.) Trust yourself.
2.) Listen to your intuition. =It’s always right.
3.) You can be anything you want in life.
4.) Your body is your sacred temple. Honor it.
5.) I am strong, beautiful, smart, athletic, healthy and capable of doing anything I want. She always complimented me growing up, and affirmed my intrinsic worth which has contributed to my solid self esteem and confidence to go out into the world and make my dreams come true.
The things she taught me indirectly just from being what she is:
1.) Be Passionate.
2.) Love of life…living from the heart.
3.) Open heart.
4.) Humanistic values. Nobody is higher or lower than me, everyone has the same value and worth. She often told me that the same life spark that lives in me, lives in all humans.
5.) Living fearlessly. Being bold.
6.) Generosity…giving, giving, giving.
7.) Being a person who radiates warmth.
9.) She introduced me to spirituality and personal development. Growing up she often did Tibetan Reiki on me, taught me about the chakra’s in my body, how to heal myself, work with energy and to have an open third eye. My mother has always had strong intuitive gifts.
