Wisdom from Valerie Sheppard

Wisdom from Valerie Sheppard

I am passionate about helping people create better relationships with themselves.

I once asked an audience to write love letters. “Make them gush with adoration and affection!” I told them, and then added this: “Write the letter to yourself.” There was almost an audible gasp. I didn’t read them, but as people left, an older woman in tears told me she couldn’t come up with one thing. I was deeply saddened imagining what this state of inner desolation was creating in her outer experience.

You see, life is an inside-out game. Our relationship with ourselves influences everything. How well we know, honor, nurture, forgive, and love ourselves is reflected back to us in all our outer experiences and relationships. When we can’t love, trust, or free ourselves from resentment, fear, shame, or guilt, we attract what resonates with that vibration. It’s Universal Law, understand it or not, believe it or not, like it or not.

The solution? Inner discovery.

A trip to the emergency room fearing I was having a heart attack was the catalyst for my own such journey. I uncovered sub-conscious victim mentality and feelings of inadequacy and unworthiness were running me inside while I wore masks of poise and confidence on the outside.

It is unfortunate that we do not seem to 'discover' life until some drastic measure happens.
For me, it was a multiple change of circumstances in a short amount of time, that knocked
me to my knees. I have been able to recover slowly, with much prayer to the Lord.
Reflecting back upon those times, I find myself saying that it has made me a better person.

YOUR MINDSET CHANGES AS YOU GET OLDER... YOU NO LONGER BEAT YOURSELF UP ABOUT NOT ''MEASURING UP'' TO SOCIAL STANDARDS AND IDEALS... - PEOPLE HAVE TO LEARN TO LOVE AND ACCEPT THEMSELVES FOR WHO THEY ARE, ALTHOUGH IT CAN TAKE MANY YEARS...

Thank-you. Always good to reflect on how your inner feelings won't be denied by your outward display. It's a task, in a way, that requires frequent attention, since it's difficult to be completely self- aware at every moment.
