During the weekend I had a brief chat with Serge about feeling nauseous.
During a Universal Medicine course, I was feeling quite unwell. It felt like motion sickness as the feeling continued to churn through my stomach.
He simply said ‘What are you not accepting?’
It just hit me, and though at first I found these simple words hard to interpret, that quickly dissipated and was replaced by appreciation for his words and how true they were. The truth was, I wasn’t accepting many things in my life.
I wasn’t accepting who I am, I wasn’t accepting or appreciating the young man that I was, nor was I accepting my worth or my potential. These simple words unlocked a whole new view of myself. Not only did this truth enable me to be a more open and approachable person, it also allowed me to be more open, compassionate and accepting of others as well.
This wasn’t a trying or a ‘put on’ to be more open, but an example of how accepting myself showed me a way of being ‘just naturally’ me, as is my true nature. Through this experience I have continued to develop and deepen my self-acceptance daily, which has helped me immensely in all areas of life.
Although they were simple words, Serge’s reading was a profound gift from a person who had the clarity to remind me of something that I did already know, but up until that moment had chosen to not remember.
