Being yourself is being Magnificent

Loving yourself means REVEALING your True Self - not hiding it away!





What happens when you look in the mirror first thing and say to yourself,

'Good Morning! You're truly magnificent!'


For a start would you even dream of doing that in the first place?  That alone says something about your inner most feelings!
But, if you are anything like me I get straight into, 'Who me, magnificent,' as I reach for my specs. 'Yeah right? Who are you trying to kid?'

The insults I hurl at myself could be described as 'self-sabotage', and have nothing to do with 'Self Love.'  The mere fact that I don't even bother to take a look in the mirror, also speaks of self-sabotage. 

Why researching Self-Sabotage and EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique/Tapping) I came across this lovely YouTube edition on that subject with Brad Yates, who really impresses me and helps me when I get stuck. (oh boy do I get stuck)



Then I found this quotation from Australian Writer Bronnie Ware.

Magnificence is who you truly are.
Dare to be who you truly are!


I think these two things go together.  In fact I believe they are the opposites of the same coin, 

As human beings, we are destined to keep moving through changes in our lives, just as the natural world also does.  The part that is resistance and would rather stay safe and secure in the same old scenario is our Saboteur, whilst the part of us that knows who we really are and truly Light's up our Lives is SPIRIT AND TRULY MAGNIFICENT.  Our Saboteur is very crafty and very often is an undercover operator, so we don't always recognise what he's getting up to to start with.

Change is n't always easy; remember Growing Pains? Change may not be easy, but it is our destiny However if we trust SPIRIT then we are half way home.  However, we are all in danger of becoming fixed to a particular label and allowing it to define us, for instance Gillian the medium, or Gillian the writer or Gillian a woman of a certain age when we really are wired for change.  The vision we have of ourself in the moment is merely a snapshot in time, but certainly not  the whole picture, even though our Saboteur tries to tell us otherwise.

 We are all much more than a single snapshot in time, whether it's mother, writer, medium or elder, we are truly MAGNIFICENT. Our light shines brightly in the heavens.  It never dies, but is meant to  continue growing.

Magnificence is when you dare to keep 
the film rolling even when it seems the scariest thing in the world.
It is when you dare to go for your dreams in spite of 
the Self-Doubt your Saboteur keeps spilling into your mind.

The next few editions of this blog will be devoted to a closer look at Self-Sabotage and Magnificence 

As always I look forward to your comments on my blog.  Some people find it difficult to post so please email them to me if that's easier. Otherwise you need a gmail email address for that.

I am also available for readings at home, or via Skype, (although I am taking a few days off for early Spring Bank Holiday

Warm Wishes

  1. Pretty annoyed with myself for missing your enlightening and empowering blog, Gillian! I blame my self-saboteur who must have kept my head buried in the sand like an ostrich. My favorite part:
    "However, we are all in danger of becoming fixed to a particular label and allowing it to define us, for instance Gillian the medium, or Gillian the writer or Gillian a woman of a certain age when we really are wired for change. The vision we have of ourself in the moment is merely a snapshot in time, but certainly not the whole picture, even though our Saboteur tries to tell us otherwise.

    We are all much more than a single snapshot in time, whether it's mother, writer, medium or elder, we are truly MAGNIFICENT. Our light shines brightly in the heavens. It never dies, but is meant to continue growing."

    And with that I am going to go look at myself in the mirror. A million thanks for the shot of courage, Gillian!
