The Self-Compassion and Self-Responsibility Dance

Self-CompassionorSelf-Responsibility?.png

When we hit the road on the personal growth path, we are often faced with paradox.  

I happen to think it’s because we live in a paradox world.  Want to feel joy?  Gotta know what pain is.  In fact, have to be willing to feel both.  You get it.

Today I want to touch upon the paradox of self-responsibility and self-compassion.

I’ve been deep diving of late into the book “The Little Money Bible” after our December You Matter International Money Mindset workshop.  In fact, I’m having fun sharing a quote a day inside of our You Matter International FB group in order to keep meditating on quotes from it this month.

One quote in particular says “I hope you will see that in some instances, compassion can be described as the manifestation of love in action.  And that money is, in part, the fuel by which you express greater compassion- by transcending a poor self-image, loving yourself, being there for others; and by being grateful for the immense gift that has been bestowed upon you, the first and greatest gift you will ever receive- the gift of life.” - Stuart Wilde, The Little Money Bible

Ah!  I love looking at money, and receiving it, in connection with the practice of self-love and self-compassion.  In another part of the book however, he shares that “people now realize that they are responsible for their own empowerment.  They see that taking responsibility is a spiritual act; it allows each one the freedom to become more.  Accepting responsibility is an uncomfortable thing, for within that idea is the birth of the true individual.”

Ultimately then, our abundance or lack thereof, is part of accepting our responsibility for where we are at in the world.  And taking responsibility sounds great, until you become a victim of something atrocious, or you get diagnosed with that illness, or you are simply born into rotten circumstances.

So how do we honor our victimhood to life while looking to claim our wholeness, our healing, our empowerment?  

I think that it lies in accepting a metaphysical responsibility for where we find ourselves now, as conscious adults, in life, because it is from here that we can then find the empowered view that brings us the traction to move into a renewed state of living. It is then that we can claim our power in life so as to move forward with forgiveness, love, strength, and wisdom.  From there we can then truly live life with joy, abundance, and loving relationships.  

You might ask then how do I rectify becoming fully self-responsible for where I am in my life, with money and with health and with all of the things, while also having heaps of loving self-compassion for what has come about? Can I lovingly accept my imperfections, my falls, my moments of victimhood and my moments as perpetrator in order to be more fully human?  A human capable of being a bigger vehicle for real love, which sees all, accepts all, and chooses to embody and gift big heapings of acceptance to the world?  

I think that holding a very loving and compassionate dose of self-responsibility is key to claiming a fulfilling life.  Maybe in fact, it’s totally an expression of self-love to accept self-responsibility (empowerment) for being able to be with life as it is.  And from as it is, we can then steer our life towards that which we want to create, all while holding huge heaps of self-love and self-compassion for the as-isness of life now.

I love that the quote on self-compassion in The Little Money Bible actually would then imply that by holding that, we actually align more to loving flow, and ultimately to gratitude and amplification of the metaphysical attraction energy that will bring more of what we are wanting into our lives.

So maybe heaps of self-responsibility (empowered view) and self-compassion can help us to bring about more loving joy in the world, manifest as action, energy, and money, that we can then spread around for the good of life!

This is certainly my mission, and I am grateful for the many of you who are aligned on this path!

Here is to a year of heaps of loving self-compassion, coupled with intentional alignment to the flow of love and divine expression in life as our Love Bomber selves.  Here is to the amplification of love in action, of connection, of healing.  Love really is brave isn’t it?

From Envy to Inspiration

Hi All!

Okay, I loved getting to ponder this one!  And, I loved that the question came from our community.  When I was asked how I deal with Envy I got to really think about this natural method of being able shift into Inspiration.

Since we are creative beings, almost all of us can say there are things we admire in others that we just don't feel we have developed or created yet in our own lives.  Being able to shift into inspiration is just one way to handle this feeling.

Happy Valentines Day To Your Beautiful Heart

Happy Valentines Week To You!

I hope that you find a moment this week to enjoy some of the silly sparkles of the Valentines hearts floating around.  Regardless of whether or not you have a romantic partner to celebrate with (I went for years without that!), it's a sweet week to celebrate the lightness and love of the heart.

This week happens to be week number 2 in the My Love Bomb Program where we are focusing our attention on the building of both inner and outer harmony as an expression of Love.

I was inspired to take to the mic and record for you a podcast to help give you some insight to what we're going through while contributing some of that beautiful energy right back to you.

I also am bringing back the Body Love meditation this week recommendation as a Valentines Gift to your cells.

I hope you can find 20 minutes to calm and bring this gift of Love to every cell of your body.

Big Love to you!

How Do You Anchor During Challenging Times?

Some days when I am doing these FB Lives,....I get on fire and I feel like, wow, that was a good one.  This is a good one!

The structure of this talk comes from my Concept Therapy days,....and then anchors to the heart that has become a major part of my work during the Love Bomb days.

I go over a four point process for anchoring and finding the Love, being a part of the New Paradigm, as a Love Bomber, all while enjoying life!

If you have any kind of challenge coming on for you and you need to find a way to anchor, this is for you.

If you are ready to be a major part of the paradigm change from the head to the heart, then this is for you AND I'd love to talk!

I have 3 spots left for the My Love Bomb Program Facilitator Training path this year and we are kicking it off in one week.  I am ready to open those up to three more kick-ass heart-centered motivated women ready to live and love across the divides we make up with our minds.

If you feel called to this, please email me and let's get the conversation rolling:  dr.rhea@blossomlife.com

Big Love!

What Kind of Woman Are You? (Or, How Conflict Is The Road To Peace)

Photo by Briana Marie Photography, that's me, Dr. Rhea Zimmerman Komarek, at The World Premier of Love Bomb.  I chose it because it is me being my version of brave.  Heart totally on the line.  "In the Arena" as Brene Brown would call it.

Okay.  This FB Live scared me, for a few reasons.  First of all.  WHO IN THE HECK AM I to ask you what kind of woman you are?  And since my audience is no bull shit smart as heck women, well, ha, I don't want to offend you!

And that brings me to part two of this week's scary theme, conflict.

Somehow I manage to talk about the need for conflict, or rather, the need to get with the fact that conflict is actually a part of the peace recipe.  And that leads to why for me, the kind of woman I want to be, is powerful, courageously loving, real, willing to forgive, wearing my heart on my sleeve but my wits about me.  Basically, me.  My innate version of a strong woman.

So I ask you in this one, what kind of woman are you?  Because I believe the world needs us in our vulnerability and in our strength, in our hearts and in our beautiful minds.  And especially, it needs us able to work together in empowered ways.

Whew.

See what I mean, that is an awesome and scary vision, because we know how much it takes.

Thank you for being a part of it!
