Hello, dear Spiritual Warrior! This week we are exploring acceptance.
I’ve talked about the concept of acceptance many times, typically, in the context of how our need for acceptance drives so many of our daily and life decisions. How we need to feel the ripple of someone or something bigger than us. How we crave this acceptance – in the grandest ways and in the smaller moments.
This week, we’re exploring acceptance in a different way.
Acceptance is a beautiful teaching with many different levels. It is the root and the foundation of many wisdom traditions including Buddhist compassion teachings, the ancient Hindu Law of Least Effort, and Christ Consciousness. But regardless of your orientation to these belief systems, you can find powerful, personal evolution by awakening the Sacred Power of Acceptance in your life.

There are three core levels of acceptance, and we instantly shift every aspect of our being by:
1. Accepting that this moment is perfect, pure, whole, and every moment that has led to this moment was exactly the way it was meant to be.
This moment is the magnificent culmination of all of your life choices; every experience that has woven itself in, around, and through you; and every one of the 31 million seconds that have ticked by in just this year alone! It couldn’t be any other way.
2. Accepting that you are a divine being who is sealed in this human body for the span of a lifetime and that you have made choices and decisions throughout your life from your highest level of consciousness at the time.
3. Accepting others for who they are – not as we wish they would be. Allowing people’s differences, quirks, unique vibrations to just be and not necessarily fit into our box of how the world is supposed to be. Allowing others to be as they are.
When you awaken the Sacred Power of Acceptance, you finally recognize that wherever you are, every moment of the past is carved in stone and for you to evolve your life, improve your situation, or find deeper fulfillment you must own the present moment.
All we have is the present moment, but within the present moment when can transform our lives. If you want to go deeper into these teachings, check out my book Sacred Powers: The Five Secrets to Awakening Transformation.
Sending you expansive love, personal growth, and health. Be well.
Namaste. -davidji & Peaches the Buddha Princess
