Many people today are struggling with their lives, often daily. Are you one of them?

My spirit guides have often said our highest and best authority is our own inner guidance, our intuition. It will never lead us astray. We can trust it completely.

Most of us know that. Yet, when faced with challenges and choices, we are often lost and struggling, not knowing which way to turn.

That’s because there are so few influences in our modern world encouraging self-reliance, self-trust and, most importantly, self-love.


Your lives were not meant to be a struggle. You’ve probably heard us, and others, say that before. But it always bears repeating.

If you are struggling with anything, big or small, it’s a sure sign you haven’t been listening to your intuition—you have not been tuned in to your spirit.

When you are listening and tuned in, your life becomes easier and more joyful. Your birthright is to live a life of effortless ease. That does not mean a life without challenges, which are only opportunities for growth.

Before you incarnated your spirit (or soul, if you prefer) was excited to be venturing into this world of density, diversity, and duality. After all, there might be some fun there, a chance to hook up with some of your soul family to once again explore the excitement of being in physical form.

Many of you have forgotten all that amidst, as John said, the forces in your society that work against self-reliance, self-trust, and self-love. Especially self-love.

We urge you to do all within your power to love and nurture yourselves in any way possible. Ignore those who say you are being “selfish.” Selfish is good. You cannot give what you do not have. If you do not fill yourselves up with love you will have none to give others.

You are divine beings of light. You deserve to be happy and abundant. You deserve to be loved, especially by yourselves.

Tell yourselves, at least once a day, “(your name), I love you.” Look in a mirror while saying it.

It sounds so simple, but it’s a powerful exercise.

Every problem or challenge you face can be resolved by reminding yourselves to love yourselves. If your whole planet did that you could create the peace you all seek—the peace within yourselves and the peace within all people.

Allow yourselves to love and be loved. Most of all, love yourselves unconditionally. That is the secret to living your life with effortless ease.


Here is Abraham, channelled by Esther Hicks, talking about unconditional self-love:
