Spirituality: Self-Acceptance and Love

In order to heal the shame that binds you, you have to begin with self-acceptance and self-love. Love creates union. When we make the decision to love ourselves unconditionally, we accept ourselves unconditionally. This total self-acceptance creates at-one-ment. We are at one with ourselves. Our full power is available to us because we are not dissipating our power by having to guard our split-off parts. Choosing to love ourselves is possible, even if we have negative feelings about ourselves.
