Gently and With Love, Honor Yourself

We are drawing on the compassionate and timeless wisdom of The Gabriel Messages to provide insight and inspiration that we can apply every day of our lives.

For this week's issue, the first message in The Gabriel Message Book and Card Set helps us remember that we are here to bring Heaven to Earth by honoring and respecting ourselves first.

The Gabriel Message Card for this week


Gently and With Love, Honor Yourself.

When I received this message from Archangel Gabriel in the early 1990s, I had no idea what honoring myself meant.

I was raised in a military family, and that patriarchal system had no room for honoring of the feminine. They had many strict rules that I rebelled against when I was there. Ironically, when I was no longer in that system, I found that I had adopted those same rules as my inner voice! I became a hard taskmaster, requiring perfection for myself. I was merciless when I failed to achieve that status...which was always. This caused me to continuously feel I was not good enough.

It was becoming painfully obvious by the time I was 50 that being hard on myself was not helping. After all, if I had not whipped myself into enlightenment by that time, it was clearly not going to work. It was only after a collapse of all the structures of my life in the tumultuous year of 1999 that I began to discover the power of having compassion for myself.

The Angels said to me, "Allow yourself to be enfolded in Wings of Pure Love." It was so sweet sounding, and I had a very great need by that time to open my heart and be blessed. When I surrendered to the Higher Power working through me, I found to my surprise that allowing myself to receive the Light of Divine Love was the most nourishing thing I had ever done.

I was always one to give others kindness and compassion. Giving myself what I would give to others turned into a new experience for me. I found that Compassion is a Force of very high-frequency energy that could empower me on new levels.

In fact, Compassion led me to actually loving myself in a true and honest way. I have heard that the love we give ourselves is healing our connection to Nature. This seems so important to me. We are meant to be a true blended being, bridging Heaven and Earth by bringing our most expansive connection to the Divine Source into our physical bodies to blend with our most human selves. In this way, everyone will live in harmony within themselves and with all life on the planet. This idea so inspires me and answers many questions about how to bring about a peaceful and thriving co-existence on Earth.

This honoring of myself expanded my field of consciousness and created a greater connection to my Higher Self. It enabled me to hear the true, sweet and authentic voice of my inner guidance showing me new ways to live that honored who I am as well as the deepest Truth of my Soul. And from this place I can, gently and with love, honor myself as well as all of life.

Divine Presence:

Thank you for helping me to remember how important it is to love and honor myself. May I bring more Compassion and Respect into every interaction within me. Encourage my heart to soften and be loving to myself first, so I may bring this open heart into every situation with others.

Thank you for showing me how Nature is responding to my new ability to love myself more in every moment. As I use Nature to demonstrate true nourishment and flow of Divine Light, help me to expand these connections in greater ways within me.

I ask to be a blended being, bridging Heaven and Earth through embodiment of my Divinity. Allow me to receive more Love, more Wisdom, more Communion with Divine Light throughout my physical, mental and emotional bodies at all times.

In all that I do, may I serve to be a greater presence of Love on this planet so that all may know this truth within themselves. And so it is.

The Gabriel Messages #1

Gently and with love, honor yourself.


Dear One,
You are sometimes kinder to total strangers than you are to yourself. You are a magnificent being of light. Honor
and remember this, for it is not easy to be in an earth body. There are many demands on you. You can be so
involved with day-to-day struggles that you do not feel you have time to remember your spirit. And yet it
is the focus on your spirit that will make your earth-walk easier.
Honor yourself with gentleness and love. You are not alone. The Infinite Presence has not placed you
onto the earth plane without a way of receiving assistance when you most need it. That is why there are Angels.
Angels are messengers from God who are here to assist in making your earthly life more effortless,
to bring light into the darkness, and to remind you that you are incredibly loved.
We know of your struggle, and we know that you are making a valiant effort. We bless you and honor
you for all that you have done and are doing. But more than that, we honor you for who you are deep
inside. We honor that part of you that holds the essence of your soul. We see within you a spark of
incredible goodness and love. This we bless and honor and we urge you to do the same. The more
you bless and honor this Divine Light within you, the more it grows. The more this light grows, the
more Love you feel and the more energy you have. The more Love you feel within you, the more you
want to give to others. In this way the world is served and more Light is brought to your beautiful planet,
which is in need of great blessings at this time.
We ask you to be gentle with yourself, to be as kind to yourself as you are to others. Without love and
encouragement a little child cannot grow to be a healthy adult. Yet you never outgrow your need for love —
and remember, it is important to give yourself this love first, before you can fully give it to others.


How does one love oneself? You can start with the small things. Place your hand on your heart and breathe
in Love and Gratitude. Say, "I love you" to yourself whenever you look into a mirror. Remember to give
yourself daily acknowledgment for how hard you work, for how much effort you give to another, for how caring
you are to your children. For whatever you can think of, acknowledge yourself. If you cannot think of anything,
simply acknowledge yourself for getting through another day on earth and doing the best you can do. As
simple as this may seem, it is very powerful.

The most important way you can love and honor yourself is by remembering who you are deep inside —
a radiant Spirit of Light growing stronger and more whole every day. This is the truth of you. You can love
yourself by eating in healthy ways and doing all that you know serves your body, but true loving and honoring
begins with your feelings about yourself. You are here on earth to express the Infinite in form and to
learn to be loving, joyful and peaceful. It does no good to berate yourself because you are not yet perfectly
expressing these qualities. You were not given a manual for life on earth, so the only way you can learn
is through trial and error, and by often painful experiences which encourage you to grow through the
choices you make. Everything you choose and who you are makes a difference on the Earth. Please honor this.
There are many ways you can gently love and honor yourself. We ask you to give yourself kindness
and compassion, to do the best you can with all aspects of your life, and to call on a Higher Power
to assist you at all times, no matter how mundane the situation.

The Angels are Divine messengers here to help you, bless you and most of all, love you. Receive
this love and remember to:

Gently and with love, honor yourself.
