My Family is a Source of Healing Energy

This is how I feel about my children first, my mother second, and my grandmother third. They are always there to support me even when they don't understand me. They trust that I will be there for them. They love me, and ask nothing in return. Every mother knows this feeling when their toddler runs up and hugs them. Enjoy today's reflection.

My family is a source of healing energy for me because I know that with them I can truly be myself. While I always try to be my best no matter who I am with, I know that my family loves me unconditionally and that they want and need me to be me.

I am free from pressure when I am with my family because I know that their love for me is not dependent on my performance.

While I also have others in my life who back me up and help me out, I realize that most people who do so have at least some self-interest at heart. This is not bad; it's just life!

But with my family, I am confident that their love is based solely and permanently on the simple fact that we are family. And nothing can ever change that.

I find it easy to relax with my family. Because they know me inside and out, I am able to let go of the tendency to want to put on a show. If I am happy or excited about something, I share it with them. If I am sad or anxious, I share that as well.

I know my family wants to be a part of my inner life as much as I want to be a part of theirs. I can speak the truth around them because I know that our relationship is based on authenticity and trust.

Life can be so challenging so I truly cherish my family's support. I love having this group of people with whom I can laugh or cry, share my deepest fears or fondest dreams, and who will always be a part of my life, no matter what.

Self-Reflection Questions:

1. Do I appreciate all that my family brings to my life?
2. How do I show my family that I care about their lives?
3. When was the last time I got together with my family just to relax?
