Empowerment Through Self-Love

a meditative journey for shift      Introduction  •  The Journey  •  Robin Arrieta home page



Meditation is a key ingredient for a peaceful mind and healthy body. Guided meditations can take you on a journey to enhance and shift your life in some way. During meditation you let go of the physical and mental stresses of your daily life and allow the simple gift of breath to balance and ease your mind and body. When you have stressful thoughts or remember stressful events, your heart rate and blood pressure increase as your glandular systems react. Chemical reactions take place that deplete the body of its life-force energy. Biofeedback studies have proven that you can lower your heartbeat and blood pressure through breathing and positive thoughts. Breathing and positive thoughts … how simple and powerful is that! Taking this a step further, your thoughts create your reality. Even science is beginning to support this through the study of the electron. The truth is that you have everything you need within you to feel peaceful and create an amazing and happy life. It begins with self-love and acceptance.

Many people have trouble quieting their mind for any length of time. This is not surprising since we have been raised in a society based in constant “doing” and very little support for just “being.” It is in the “being” that you raise your level of consciousness and become proactive rather than reactive. Having someone guide the busy mind to a particular focus or purpose can be very empowering and easily create magical changes in your life.

Meditation takes you to an alpha state, connecting you with the subconscious mind. The subconscious mind is powerful—unlimited—and change can manifest very quickly here. It currently fulfills the directives of our conscious mind. The subconscious mind is like a computer. It only knows the programming downloaded from the conscious mind. You (and your conscious mind) might sit in front of the mirror and affirm daily that you love yourself but, if your core belief is that you are unworthy of love, that is what you magnetize into your life—events that reflect what you perceive as truth.

Much of your conscious programming began as a child and was based in limited thinking. You may have created coping devices for survival in dysfunctional households or relationships. For example, you may have learned to use anger as a protection. Being invisible and playing small could serve you in an abusive household but, as a free adult, this could greatly hinder your path and your purpose. It might be time to update the programs to empowerment, self-love, and healthy beliefs. The more you listen to this meditation-empowerment process, the faster and deeper shifts will occur. It is possible to retrain the mind into behaviors and attitudes that truly support your highest good. It is safe to be powerful and strong, and it is easy to love yourself when you awaken to the realization that you are Divine in physical expression.

In this guided meditation, you have the opportunity to rewrite your future by updating your present programs. Let go of false beliefs and realign yourself with the truth. Life is meant to be joyful. You are an amazing and powerful being. You have unique gifts to offer and it is your Divine birthright to receive all the good in life that is available to you. You have the sacred blueprint within you for perfect health, beautiful relationships, happiness, and a purpose that makes the world a better place in some way. Your empowerment begins with self-love and acceptance.


The Journey

Make sure that you’re comfortable, whether you are lying down or sitting up. Take a deep breath with the intention of letting the outside world go, bringing your attention to your body and your breath. That’s all you have to do at this moment—is breathe. It is a beautiful gift you are giving to yourself at this moment: stillness and breath. The opportunity to regenerate your life force and let go of the physical stress residing in your body as tension. There is nothing you have to do right now … nowhere to go. You’ve set this time aside just for you and it will serve you greatly … as you continue to deepen your breath with each inhalation. Breathing in vibrant life force energy … exhale completely, letting go of all worries, cares, and tension. You’ve set this time aside because you know that you are worth it and you know that taking this small amount of time for yourself will benefit you and those around you in amazing ways. So let go … and simply breathe.

Relax your mind. If your mind begins generating thoughts, lovingly let them pass through and bring your attention back to my voice and back to your breathing, allowing your mind to be open and receptive.

You are so much more powerful than you have ever been led to believe. Any anxiety is simply drifting away … as you relax your forehead … breathing in success … breathing out any doubt.

Relax your eyes … and all the muscles and tendons behind your eyes. Letting go of eyestrain generated from reading and focusing on computer, t.v., and phone screens. Letting your eyes totally relax. Very much aware of my voice and everything that I’m saying, but allowing the body to go limp in full relaxation. Breathing in serenity, letting go of any fear, anger, or judgments.

Relax your mouth and your jaw now. It is safe for you to speak your truth, and you are wiser than you realize. You have learned a great deal on this journey of life and you have wisdom and love to share.

Relax your neck and throat now … releasing any tightness, letting go completely. You carry the Divine blueprint for perfect health and free will to create the life of your dreams.

Relaxing your shoulders and your upper back, you are surrounded with loving support, both in the physical and ethereal realms. Let go and allow yourself to receive this love and support.

Relaxing your arms, your elbows, your wrists … hands … fingers. Bringing that deep sense of relaxation to your heart now—the energy center for giving and receiving love. Breathe love and light into the center of your heart and let it expand … within, around, and throughout your body. Healing, loving light is yours any time you need it. You have the power to create it with simple intention.


Taking a deep breath into your abdomen, let every muscle relax. Let go of all projections placed on you by others. We were taught by people that carry the filters and beliefs of their individual lives. By changing your mind, you change your life. Connecting with your inner Divine being will enable you to find your truth and express it with grace.

Relaxing your shoulders and your upper back, you are surrounded with loving support, both in the physical and ethereal realms. Let go and allow yourself to receive this love and support.

Now, take your breath all the way to the pelvic floor for the deepest breath possible. You are supported in ways that you cannot even imagine. You are greater than you ever imagined …

Relax your legs completely. Your thighs … knees … calves … ankles, feet … toes.

You’re doing beautifully … feeling light as a feather … surrounded in love and light.

Allowing the body to enjoy this serenity and deep healing, continue to breathe slowly and deeply. Let go of all conscious thoughts of the day and let the power of your subconscious mind be present. The subconscious mind carries with it a blueprint based upon your previous beliefs about yourself and the world around you. It strives to create whatever you believe in and focus on, be it negative or positive. So we focus on the truth about you. You have all the skills, abilities, and resources available beyond anything you ever dreamed of, and the subconscious mind holds the key to manifesting that reality. No limits. A life of joy. Your subconscious mind knows how to act upon these positive suggestions to create your blissful reality of success.

Simply allow …


Joseph Campbell once said: When you follow your bliss … doors will open where you would not have thought there were doors … and the world will step in and help.

Each day is a new beginning for you. Each minute of your life has led to this day, this hour, this very moment in time. You have done the very best you could given the information available to you. The truth is that you are a Divine spiritual being having a human experience. What would your experiences look like if you knew that you were not meant to live a life of suffering or sacrifice? What would your life be like if you knew that you would be supported for following your bliss? What is your life going to look like when you let go of the past hurts you continue to carry around with you? All negative thoughts, behaviors, concepts, and beliefs will simply dissolve in the wake of acknowledging your Divine perfection and the perfection of all events in your life. Step out of past limitations into freedom. The new you is ready to emerge, empowered by unconditional love and acceptance. There is a part of your mind that knows exactly how to reinvent behaviors, attitudes, and beliefs that will keep you optimistic, positive, and productive. Imagine how easily and naturally life can change for you now. And so it begins …

You’ve begun a new cycle in your life. Spiritual, intuitive gifts are surfacing in subtle and beautiful ways. Intention and imagination are powerful tools you use daily. Just as a magnet draws itself to metal, you will draw the perfect people, books, things, and information to assist you on your path. You know, in your heart, that you are worthy, you are loved, and you are supported. All you have to do is ask.

You may choose to close the door to negative past experiences that you are ready to let go of, beliefs that were projected or implanted by others … that do not reflect your true being … let go of any self-imposed limitations or judgments … and imagine before you a new door. This new door contains extraordinary possibilities for you. All you need to do is set a new blueprint in motion. Release the past and cast away all doubt. Open yourself to unconditional love as it permeates every cell, every organ, creating harmony in your relationships and endeavors. One beautiful possibility for you is a strong sense of self-confidence and self-esteem. See yourself with new eyes, for you are perfect and everything you will ever need is within you. By holding unconditional love for yourself, you are able to love others more deeply. You create a vibration of love that resonates out into the world … Like the ripple of a pebble dropped in water, that love radiates out, touching others … in ways you may never know. A simple smile or a kind gesture could create miraculous shifts in someone’s day. As you resonate with the vibration of love, you draw loving energy to you. This is a universal law of attraction and you are becoming the master of your domain by consciously choosing love over judgment and fear.


Upon awakening each day, you may wish to take a few moments to appreciate and express gratitude for your many gifts and blessings. Imagine yourself going through your day with a warm smile and happy, healthy body … relaxed and centered, successful, with plenty of time for everything. Setting positive intentions with faith that, if it is for your highest good, it will simply manifest.

Your life has infinite possibilities. Every day something new is happening to you. Accept the absolute possibility that every day, in every way, you are getting better … and better … and better in all aspects of your life. You master the power of making wise choices and are able to use this power in all areas of your life. Energy flows where your focus goes, and you can easily focus on positive and healthy thoughts and actions.

As you continue to breathe in that wonderful life-force energy, imagine it as pure love … pure light. It has the amazing ability to heal, and carries with it all possibilities. The blueprint for perfect health is available to you. So … breathe in light through the center of your heart and let it expand within, around, and throughout your body. As you continue to breathe slowly and deeply, let the vibration of love and light saturate every cell in your body. Let go of any judgments you may hold about your health or your body and envelop your being in unconditional love and supportive thoughts of perfect health. You are a spiritual being of pure energy … which is manifest in the form of a human body, made up of molecules in constant motion. Imagine for a moment the space in between these molecules … and now imagine healing white light filling that space … purifying your entire body and auric field.


Your body is the temple your spiritual being is residing in. It is an amazing gift that no industry or science can reproduce and is constantly regenerating itself. Because you want your body to feel vibrant, you choose to eat healthy and live foods whenever possible. Leafy green vegetables, fresh fruits—foods rich in vitamins, fiber, and protein in just the perfect portions. To honor and appreciate all food and drink that you take into your body raises the vibrational rate, the vibrational energy and reminds you that all living things deserve to be blessed and honored. It is possible to stay healthy, youthful, and vibrant. Nurture your body and it will serve you well.

You find opportunities to exercise in some way. Not because you should, but because you know how good it feels to strengthen and tone your body. You enjoy the deep breath and feeling of accomplishment. Whether it be walking, yoga, swimming, stretching, dancing, martial arts … the thought of exercise brings feelings of joy and confidence. Ten to twenty minutes, several times a week is all it takes … and you’re worth it.

Human existence can be challenging, but all challenges can be viewed from a Divine perspective which allows you to see the gift or opportunity for growth. There is a higher reason for every experience in your life. You have drawn all experience to you. Blaming someone else for your experiences only defers the self-growth you are needing. Similar experiences may continue until you see the gift and shift. There may be an opportunity to release guilt, anger, judgments, fear … Look at each experience with love and you will find the gift in it. This is one of the most important things that you can do to raise your vibration and transmute negativity. All is in Divine order.

You have the choice to stay centered and calm in the eye of the hurricane as those around you get caught up in drama and chaos in the world. By holding this peace, without judgment, you help others find their peace, thereby creating a shift on the planet … one being at a time. This is a choice which can serve the world in a miraculous way. Trust that all is in perfect and Divine order. Worry, sorrow, and viewing others as victims only waters their garden of victim energy. However, prayers of love and support can create miracles of empowerment. Your vibrance and peace of mind increases as you master this awareness.


Shift can happen in a golden moment of time. That change can occur in the most unexpected ways. Centered and calm, you are more able to hear messages from spirit or your wise inner being. Breathing deeply, you are able to handle any and all situations using positive and loving language. Because of this, your environment is becoming more peaceful and you are drawing people and experience that reflect this new way of being.

The more you surrender to the Divine flow available to you, the more you will experience synchronistic and magical events in your life. These synchronistic events may create opportunities and connections you never dreamed of. You have inner resources you never dreamed of. You are a Divine being with many special and creative gifts to share with the world. Your laughter, your love, and your smile are among the most beautiful gifts you have to share.

Every day you are seeing something special awaken within yourself. You have everything you need within you to create an amazing life. By living your truth, you empower others to do the same. Everything you have ever read, seen, or heard is available to you. You have exceptional mental capacity and things come to you easily. You have access to divine wisdom at all times and bring powerful gifts from other lifetimes. These will awaken as you continue to R E M E M B E R who you truly are. Through the power of the mind and the power of thought you can now unleash the imagination … for, if you can imagine it, you can create it. You are now feeling the self-worth of your amazing future. Powerful, positive changes take place every day.

Letting go of the past, no worries about the future, you tune into the NOW which gives you freedom … freedom to accomplish all your goals easily without preconceptions. Today you change the rules and begin creating a new story of your positive, creative, and stress-free life. You are far greater than you have let yourself believe. Embrace this truth and follow your bliss. You can recreate yourself on a dime. It could happen by changing one belief. You have unique gifts to offer and it is your Divine birthright to receive all the good in life that is available to you. You have the sacred blueprint within you for perfect health, beautiful relationships, happiness, and a purpose that serves the world in a beautiful way. Your empowerment begins with self-love and acceptance. Let the true beauty of your soul radiate out into the world today. Thank you for choosing to be on the planet at this time, and thank you for being YOU.

Feeling refreshed, remembering everything that has been said, and taking what serves you … bringing your attention back to the room, feeling strong … empowered … courageous. Back to your body, feeling vibrant and full of love, notice your breathing. Feel your fingers … and your toes … and, when you are ready, open your eyes.
