Marie T. Russell's Daily Inspiration
The focus for today is: I develop my essential qualities in order to feel more whole and fulfilled.
Today I'd like to share a quote from a book by Shakti Gawain:
If you are having difficulty with a present relationship, or if you frequently encounter certain kinds of difficult people, take a moment to look closely at what they are reflecting. Once you have identified the quality or qualities that bother you, ask yourself what the positive aspect or essence of that quality might be. For example, if you see them as lazy, what could be the positive aspect of laziness? It could be the ability to relax....
Once you have identified what quality this person is reflecting to you, imagine yourself having integrated more of that quality in yourself.... Imagine yourself more able to relax, for example, or more able to show your vulnerability in close relationships, or more assertive, or more able to receive...
Difficulties we are having in our relationships often mirror parts of ourselves that we need to heal. You can use the discomfort of this relationship to help you discover the essential qualities you need to develop in order to feel more whole and fulfilled.
Today's Focus was inspired by the InnerSelf.com article:
