Who Loves You, Baby?
There is a specific answer to this question that I’m going for here, but let’s go on a journey of discovery, and let the answer reveal itself, shall we?
David and I recently co-hosted an internet radio show on Loana Morgan Radio – the first radio show we’d done together in a few years. We had a really great time doing it, and the feedback we’ve received has been tremendous!
The theme we talked about is so important, and is so “up” for so many of us on our path right now, Dolphin inspired me to share excerpts of the show here (edited for clarity).
Here we go!
Linda: …I’d like to talk about a really important gift I came home from Hawaii with, as a result of my recent trip there to swim with my beloved Hawaiian spinner dolphin family.
A couple of weeks after I’d returned home, there was a morning that I got out of bed, and I went to the mirror, and immediately I started looking at myself and noticing my wrinkles, and noticing my hair – that it wasn’t doing what I wanted it to do – and noticing the places on my body that weren’t as tight as I would like them to be (laughing).
David: We’re getting very intimate here.
L: (laughing) Yes! Very intimate!
But it was so interesting, because in the area of self love, I think I’m functioning pretty well. I think that I really do have a high level of self love, and appreciation, and acceptance. But in this one area, all of the sudden I was engaged in that activity, and it was like the dolphins said:
"Wake up! Look at what you’re doing. Look at these thoughts that you have about yourself that you’re affirming over and over and over again. And notice the energy – the frequency – that’s entering into your body with every single critical thought. Notice that!"
It was shocking! And in that moment, the lightbulb went on for me, and that unloving behavior completely shifted. The dolphins gave me a number of ways to be in a new relationship with my body, and things to do every day to be in love with my body, and to tell my body how much I love and appreciate it. Those simple small daily practices have made such a difference for me!
The theme for me was self love. The dolphins showed me that I had a ways to go there!
D: What seems to have been a theme through many of the recent Journey of Discovery with Archie sessions I’ve been doing is this same issue of self love – of literally how we treat ourselves on a moment-by-moment basis. And so, that’s really become something that both you and I have become more conscious of.
And what’s been interesting is that a lot of the people who receive these sessions really are far along on their spiritual path. They really are people who have been serious lightworkers. They’ve done many workshops; they’ve done many sessions with other channels; they’ve done many, many things. They’re very, very beautiful people. And they’re very, very dedicated to bringing love and light to the world. And so often, they’re giving it to everybody but themselves!
…This has really been a theme. Through these Archie sessions, I’ve become so aware of the ways in which we’re unkind, even cruel, to ourselves.
L: Whenever I had that experience of looking at myself in the mirror and being critical, one of the things that the dolphins reminded me of was the Dr. Emoto work with water – the positive words causing the water to crystallize into beautiful patterns, and the negative words creating chaos and darkness in the patterns in the water. Well, our bodies are 87% or something like that, water! So every unkind, unloving thought that we generate towards ourselves creates that dissonance inside our bodies. It just became so clear to me.
And this is something dolphins don’t do! They can’t relate to this.
D: They’re so surprised to see us doing this to ourselves.
L: They don’t live there. That’s not their way of thinking or being in the world.
D: And, so often someone would say in a session … "I know what I should be doing, and I’m not doing it." Or, "I know what I have to do, but some part of me doesn’t want to do that."
L: And then we have: "I’m not enlightened enough; I’m not clairvoyant enough; I’m not feeling enough …" All these "I’m not enough’s." And that’s so common on the spiritual path. We compare ourselves to other people, and we want to be more … of something. And the dolphins are really highlighting that that’s not loving, and that’s not kind. We’re doing ourselves a disservice.
D: So, Archie’s intention in these sessions … is that it’s time for this whole way of being to simply stop, and to be replaced by genuine loving kindness towards ourselves – at all moments, in all situations.
He used an analogy. He said:
“You are a flower, and your desire is to bloom. Your intention is to bloom – to totally show your beauty to the world. So, imagine you have a flower garden, and you walk out and the bud is there and you’re standing in front of the flower, and saying, ‘BLOOM, darn it!’” (L & D laughing)
L: “Bloom faster!”
D: Yes. We attempt to change ourselves by force. There is a very subtle kind of force that we think is the way to get ourselves to be more of what we want to be, of who we want to be. We would never treat anybody else that way! (D laughing)
But the way Archie put it was very, very profound. He said:
“You are attempting to create the new paradigm using the methods and tools of the old paradigm. You are attempting to reach the new way of being, but you’re still operating from the old way of being – of judgment and criticism and duality – thinking that that will get you to the new way of being. And it’s simply not possible. It simply doesn’t work that way.”
I hope this whets your appetite to listen to the rest of this lively and fast-paced 40-minute show! At the end of the show, I lead a very beautiful and powerful inner process intended to lead you into a state of beautiful, deep, and expansive self love. I invite you to listen to it, and if it resonates for you, to listen to it often!
So … Who Loves You, Baby?
Yes, the dolphins love you. Yes, God loves you.
Who else’s love is essential to your full blossoming in the world? Whose love is essential to you realizing the new paradigm of unabashedly, joyously, and passionately showing your beauty to the world for all to see ~ here ~ now?
Who Loves You, Baby?
Let the answer be: “ME!”
