“It is I, Quan Yin.
Believe that you can accept the love of another. It is easier to accept the love of another than it is to love oneself. But many of you are so accustomed to not loving yourselves that you cannot or will not accept the love of another.
And I know that there is the philosophy that says love yourself first, and that is a wonderful practice if you are capable of doing it. But if you are not willing to let another love you, then what chance do you really have of loving yourself first?
So when someone else loves you, accept it. When someone gives you a compliment, receive it. When someone offers you affection, take it. Feel how it feels to receive love. It feels good. You will feel good receiving the love of another, and that is the indicator that you need to go by.
Now I also understand that for many of you there is a tendency to look for others to love you, and that it can be a substitute for loving yourself, and that for some it has even become an addiction, as you try to get the attention and the love from others that you never got before. For those of you who fall into that category, I want to recommend that you love others, that you give others the love that you seek.
So do not look to just receive love without giving any back. Give love freely and openly and accept love, and you will find that it is much easier then for you to be in the frequency of love. And as you be in the frequency of love, you will find it easier to love yourself. It does not matter how you get there, you see. And you will. I promise you.
I am Quan Yin, and I hold you in my heart.”
