    Self Acceptance & Ending Guilt Are Needed To Have Freedom, Balance & Success

    Life can be challenging enough without the extra burden the guilt brings, yet many of us continue to assume that somehow guilt is helpful or even loving! The bigger picture is that guilt is involved with many of our biggest problems now - including tyrannical government - let's take a look...

    The general case for guilt goes something like this:

    Guilt is necessary because without it we would just do whatever we wanted and wouldn't care about the outcomes or how much we hurt each other. Guilt pushes us to make things right.

    This, however, is not correct understanding of guilt. Guilt is not an active 'force' and is not even conscious - it cannot 'do' anything, it just feels a certain way and doesn't feel good. There is no guarantee that someone who is guilty will ever do what guilt demands and more importantly, there is no guarantee that what guilt demands is either loving or helpful in any way whatsoever. Just because you feel blamed, does not mean that you magically have all the answers and know how to best respond to any given situation.

    The reality is that guilt is a compression of our emotional system that leads to an inability to feel good or even to feel at all. With enough guilt, the individual feels shut down and unable to function. This is no more a useful tool for consciousness than handcuffs are a useful tool for the body. The only 'use' these things have is for control and limitation - which are not, generally, effective tools in problem solving; rather, they are typically involved more in causing problems.

    Guilt is caused by blame and involves invalidation and 'wronging' of something or someone. When someone feels denied and not accepted, if they accept the blame, they limit the love they can hold and the love they feel. Limiting love is not something that is going to improve the situation on Earth and is, in truth, actually the cause of many of our biggest challenges. For example, murder is an unloving act, yet our deepest conditioning around murder tells us that the correct response to murder is often violence and definitely not anything to do with love. How can a lack of love be resolved without the presence of love? It cannot.

    While it might seem that guiltless living is an invitation for unlovingness, the reality is that it is only an invitation for free will. It is through free will that we can learn, grown and have the experiences needed to come into balance and self empowerment. You do not need to feel controlled and shut down in order to have balanced relationships and to respect the free will of others. In fact, you cannot respect the free will of others without respecting your own free will and to do that you need to be free and not weighed down in guilt.

    Guilt has another role, which is to have us give away our own power and this is actually a large part of what is behind the intimidating form of government. As long as guilt tells you that you aren't good enough, you are also likely to reject your own power and in doing so, you open the door for government and others to take your power and use it against you and others. If you want to be free and have had enough of being pushed around by those that you do not respect, you are going to need to be more loving with yourself than you have ever been and to learn to take back your own power instead of giving it away because you are conditioned to think that you aren't good enough.

    You can start to clear guilt out by allowing unconditional acceptance of your own emotions and allow them to safely express (in private if necessary) in ways that you have never allowed before. You need to change your thinking patterns to allow your emotions to feel fully accepted and only then can you feel balance in the process. Every time you shut down your own emotions, you are limiting your own consciousness - you need to feel this to understand it.

    Once the free flow of emotions and information is really opened up, change will be easier, love can flow more than ever and healing will be taking place. Our destiny is ours and does not belong to those who would shut us down.

    Wishing you well,
