All Is Welcome Here

"Give love and unconditional acceptance to those you encounter,
and notice what happens.” ~ Wayne Dyer
Life is an outrageous adventure. Sometimes it is so radical that you may have difficulty accepting the people, situations, and experiences you are having. This resistance or non-acceptance to life makes everything more challenging. I've found one enlightening way to instantly transform out of this old pattern, by simply repeating the message "All is welcome here". Just notice what happens inside your body when you say this to yourself. You can see how the body naturally opens up and your mind becomes more aware and grateful for what is already present in your life. It is time to drop the struggling and embrace what already exists in your life.
Your very innermost being is connected to something so vast and soooo immense that it has the capacity to welcome everything that arises. Whether your ego likes it or not, acceptance can be discovered. Just give it a whirl...stretch and welcome everything in this world, including negative thoughts, sensations, or ideas. Welcome it all and acknowledge that it is all are part of the grand master plan. As you sit with all that exists in life, you naturally discover how magnificent life truly is. You begin to unwind and let go of holding onto the way the Universe "should" be. When you start letting go of control, the tension may increase or release, and this is the moment to keep acknowledging that "All Is Welcome Here". This divine Universe knows much more than we do and is far beyond the ego's opinions. A deep peace will enter your mindbody with this welcoming approach to life and make the world a more peaceful place to live.
Welcoming whatever shows up in each moment is your highway to heaven. It is your way home to deep experiences of everlasting love and peace. The interesting thing is that nothing in your life has to change for you to feel a deep peace and love inside. Your mind doesn't have to figure something out or get into action to try to solve all of your problems. Just let go and welcome what already is present. These set of circumstances that you may dislike in your life are your teachers that are guiding you home to reconnect with your authentic God-like self. What if it's more powerful for you to learn how to let go of being right all the time and use that time to explore deeper sensations of peace, joy and understanding? You do not need to change anything in your outer world to experience deep feel ings of peace and love. All of the beautiful feelings of bliss and peace that you have been striving for are here now because they are your true nature. They naturally arise from the depth of your being when you start to welcome what is. It is only the endless struggle of the ego mind that has shielded you from feeling your divine peaceful blissful nature.
"Seek first to understand, then to be understood." ~St. Francis of Assisi
Have you noticed that when your ego mind does not like a specific circumstance in your life, it starts to yell and scream like a small helpless child? The mind wants to get its own way, and when it doesn't experience what it wants, it goes into a full fledge temper tantrum like a small two year old in a panic. Fighting with what you don't like about your life only creates struggle, and suffering. It does not solve anything, or make a solution better for the ego. This is just an old game that you learned when you were young. Whenever your ego wants to fight and struggle, just watch this tendency arise inside of you, don't&nbs p;try to stop it, just watch it. Soon the energy of fighting and trying to change things will dissipate on its own. You don't have to do anything. Staying centered simply comes from being the observer. It's like you are watching a movie. You don't have to go along with the drama, you can watch and sit back. Once the fighting and the inner struggle subside, you naturally feel different about what is happening and can see the bigger picture.

By becoming a "welcome-aholic" you become a blessing to the world. Your true nature is one of acceptance and deep welcoming, and so we naturally do this easily and effortlessly. We all want to become more natural, in the flow of life and live easily. The struggle instantly disolves when the mind lets go. As you choose to welcome each experience, you'll find this organic and natural acceptance of what is arising inside of you. There is no need to manufacture this. Welcoming is natural. It is what is in every moment of existence. The grass is welcoming the rain, the sun, and wind. It is open to the energy field and allows life to penetrate it to the core. This is one of the greatest gifts you can give yourself and this world.
"The greatest gift that you can give to others is the gift of unconditional love and acceptance.” ~ Brian Tracy
Another fabulous by-product of welcoming is that you can fully step into your inherent ability to consciously manifest your desires. The energy of welcoming softens your mind-body's energy field, creating more expansiveness and receptivity . The more you can welcome what is occurring in each new moment, the more the Universe supports you in receiving whatever you naturally want to experience. It's so good to know that manifesting your desires is much easier and simpler than you imagine. This welcoming approach to each life experience naturally makes manifesting effortless. All it takes is welcoming what is here now.
