Ascension Insights: Who Do You Judge?
by Jennifer Hoffman
January 5, 2011
A friend recently paid me a very nice compliment when she said that she could talk to me about anything because I never judged her. I had not really thought about it before but it's true, I don't judge others because I feel that if they confide in me it's because they want someone to talk to and gain another perspective but taking that any farther gets into areas I don't feel that I have the right to delve into. Who am I to say whether someone is right or wrong, what their behavior says about them or to criticize or judge them based on what is going on in their life?
And this week I have had several client readings in which the issue of judgment, how they judge themselves and Universal judgment, came up. The issue of judgment is really quite simple, we are told that we should not judge anyone, including ourselves. Whenever we judge, we create an energetic block that stops all movement beyond the point of judgment. So the energy is stuck until we do or say something to move it.
But the most difficult aspect of judgment for us to understand is that the Universe never judges us. That means there is no good or bad, right or wrong, better or worse. We are all equal in the eyes of the Universe, which is a source of comfort but it has its drawbacks because the Universe doesn't judge us in any way, nor does it judge anything we do or ask for. And that extends to not preventing 'bad' things from happening to us.
Because there is no bad and because we are always seen as perfect and everything we do is the right and best thing for us at that time.
You've often heard me say that the Universe doesn't care if we want a glass of water because we're thirsty or a new house because we need a place to live. All things are equal and receive equal attention, including our judgments. So whatever we ask for is given to us because we asked for it. Judging anything prevents us from learning everything we need to know about it. Judging others is one way we criticize ourselves for not being 'enough' and what we see in others with our critical eyes is what we need to be aware of in ourselves.
There is no overseer to tell us that we are making a wrong choice, a bad decision, that we may not like the consequences of what we are doing or that there is a more powerful option available. This is non-judgment and it is how the Universe works with us. It is up to us to ask ourselves whether we are choosing well, to always set our intention for what we want and to be aware of ourselves as powerful, divine and perfect. Each thing we experience prepares us for the next step on our path, so there can be no right or wrong steps because we take each one based on what we need to learn from that situation. What we learn from our pain prepares us to make a less painful choice the next time (or not, then we get to experience the pain one more time).
It would be wonderful if the Universe maintained a dialogue with us that guided us through the tough times, helped us with our difficult choices and made sure we were always on the 'right' path. And it does, through our inner guidance which we can hear if we are listening. But what is the 'right' path? It's the one we are on right now. Sometimes the worst thing that happens is the best thing that can happen and when we make judgments we prevent ourselves from seeing the bigger picture. Our inner compass will always point us to the path that serves our healing and we have a choice as to the amount of pain that involves. When we stand in judgment of anything, we add another painful option to this learning.
Who do you judge as being better or worse, richer or poorer, more right or wrong, than you are? If you knew that your judgments stop the energy from moving in your life, would you be more or less willing to judge? If you knew how damaging your self-judgments were, would you be more aware of how you judge yourself?
Can you go an entire day without judging anything about yourself, and see yourself as perfect in every way, which is how the Universe sees you? Can you refrain from judging every person you encounter and see them as perfect in every way, which is how the Universe sees them?
I would like to challenge each of you, for one day, to look at yourselves in the mirror and tell yourself that you are gorgeous, talented, special and accomplished, to see yourselves in the same perfection that the Universe sees you with. Then look at everyone around you and refrain from judging anything about them, send your challenging life mates a special blessing and remember that they are doing the best they can in this moment, just like you. And then see how you feel at the end of the day. If you feel great, then do it the next day. Imagine what the world would be like if we didn't judge anyone or anything.
Keep the faith, we're all in this together and time is moving quickly. Become the observer in your life as you stay focused on your path.
In these interesting and transformational times, we can be overwhelmed by what is happening in our lives but there are always other solutions. Here are a few things to help you get through the difficult moments in your life:
Stay calm, focused, detached and aware and remember your thoughts are creating every moment of your life. Think the best ones.
As you ponder this and the other things that are happening at this time remember to:
Accept all gifts of understanding with gratitude and use them to apply forgiveness, release and healing to every situation.
Ask for guidance and confirmation and then wait for it to come to you.
Above all, be grateful for this opportunity to be part of humanity's amazing shift in consciousness as we all ascend into the miracle vibration.
Many blessings in these miraculous and amazing times,
