Humility is having the courage to embrace all that you are. To accept the fullness of all that you are. To be that candle, burning bright. Here I am. This is me. This is all of me.

I AM that I AM. To embrace all that I am is to embrace life, it is to acknowledge and love the Divine within. Accepting all that I am is freedom. I love humility as it sets me free to shine with a loving smile.

I enjoyed the exercise today. I feel proud of myself and like myself. It’s nice to talk about me, too… to take a pause and see my brilliance. Panache, I love it when you say: “We think that owning all of our perceived shortcomings makes us humble, but actually it diminishes our light as surely as if we were a candle being snuffed out.” This is me. There’s beauty in me. I’m gonna let me shine that others may realize that it’s okay to let their ‘me’ shine too! Let your ‘me’ shine, everyone! Love and Light to all!!! 😉
I am proud of you Osang! Love and Humility!
Sending YOU Love Osang ❤️
(((((((BEAUTIFUL OSANG))))))) Letting our LOVE LIGHTS SHINE SHINE SHINE, helping the whole world SHINE and make the shadows disappear,,,LOVE AND HUGS 🙂
Hi Panache I just wanted to let you know that I am still doing the 33 day program. When your book arrived a couple of weeks ago, I went back to the beginning of the program. I am currently on Ego. Wow! I am mind blown at how much stuff has come up for me. I keep asking for help. Up until today when I had a big breakthrough, I had been in a fog of emotional turmoil. Mostly it was this huge feeling of unworthiness. I have been listening to your last teleclass and it was Lesley your first caller who helped me see some light again. You answered my question too and in fact everyone’s questions were just perfect for what I needed to hear!! Thank You Panache. I asked for help with waking up and you came. You are the best and I adore you! Mega-Love Love Love!
(((Nicky))) I’m glad that the book arrived your hands! We are truly blessed! Love and Light on your journey! <3
Love to YOU Nicky ❤️
(((OH NICKY))) I love your breakthough,,,that is BEAUTIFUL,,,,LOVE AND HUGS, DARLING,,,we are all here with you cheering you on, hooray ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥
Love,love,love,and humility to all my sweet friends!! Have a great day :-))
Thanks Diane! Love and Humility to you too! <3
Hello Mr. Desai My name is Terri. I posted this on day 1 but did not realize you are already on day 24. Let’s just say I am strolling along right where I need to be……. again lol This is Amazing and Wonderful!!!!!! I just love how the Universe works and can make me giggle at myself! I love it!!!! I hope that it is ok that I reposted my comments here. ( From Day 1 FEAR) I am embracing both the validation and the ever unfolding journey that is always around me and transforming me someway, everyday. Blessings Terri
Dear Mr. Desai Hello. My name is Terri . I heard you speak on Christine Kloser’s “Transformational Author Experience that is presently going on. I am so grateful to have heard you speak there and follow you here on the 33 Day Path. I know that I am exactly where I AM suppose to be lol because before opening this page I had to deal with a situation that made me face my fear head on and in doing so allowed me to finally break free from my own chains of fear in moving ahead in times of uncertainty. After releasing, truly embracing and looking at my fear I realized for me the Fear was so much smaller than the BIGNESS that I saw it to be. It consumed me, made me sick, and kept me stagnant. By facing my fear it has allowed me a great relief of letting go, surrendering, love, and now new opportunities and openness to great things to come. If it wasn’t for your meditation that you did on the call with Ms. Kloser I truly believe I would not have been as open to letting this go, forgiving and replacing it with love . I would still be struggling to find answers and chasing my tail keeping me stuck and stagnant. Thank You! Thank YOU Mr. Desai for touching and transforming my life and for allowing me once again to reclaim my power, strength, and believing in myself to continue to take bold steps into the unknown. With much love and gratitude Terri Blessings on your journey and much success to you and the release of your book. I am so happy and honored to be here in this moment and at this time with You and Everyone here . I greatly look forward to getting your book. I know it is the right choice for me at this time and where I need to begin my journey now. Thank You again Mr. Desai for transforming my life and bringing me back home. May Everyone here find their spark of healing love light and transformation on their paths and journeys. Blessings Again and Always Terri

Beautiful Terri! Welcome! Love & Support.
Thank you Terri for your loving share! I am very glad that you now are on this journey with us! Love and Support!
Welome Terri!!! I heard Panache speak with Christine Kloser as well, & THAT meditation REALLY blew me away too; it was awesome! 😉 <3
I’m glad to meet here Terri! We are always in the perfect place and in the perfect time! Enjoy your journey! Love you much!
Welcome aboard Terri. – Sit back, take and deep breath and enjoy the ride. Life is your Canvas, paint away as you travel with this group of souls through the coming days and your infinite life!
Yes, welcome, Terri. Share whatever you want here — even if you’re on a different “day” than we are. Who knows? What you share may help someone here experience something that may have been missed the first time around. ❤️
I’m so glad that you are here, Terri. I loved that meditation too and it was VERY powerful. Looking forward to your posts. Blessings
Love to YOU Terri ❤️
(((((((AWESOME TERRI))))))) I love your breakthrough, you are Wonderful Darling ♥♥♥♥ Love Light and Hugs ♥♥♥♥
Terri, thanks for sharing do much. Welcome…and I especially loved your words, ” I am honored and happy to be here at this time with you and everybody….”. Your words and spirit brings joy to me.
I am still in astonishment for the ‘TRUST’ day yesterday. Although the book had tried to reach me earlier, it only reached me on the day of ‘TRUST’, how magical is that. This night, my navigation system has been reset. I’m walking my path in ‘TRUST’ for the highest benefit, for the highest good, for the highest outcome of ALL THAT IS. For me, my family, the world, Mother Earth, Father God, the Universe, Humanity and Divinity. No more fears, no more questions, no more doubts. Well, how humble is that… (lol). Although, I don’t mean anything for the outside world, because I didn’t fit in there, I’m very proud of all my invisible inner work I have been doing for 23 years now. That’s probably the reason, why it was such a marathon process, there was absolutely nothing else I was capable of. I doubted myself a lot during all those years, but this magical journey proves for me that I have been ‘right’ all the way, although the outside world wanted me to believe being ‘wrong’. I AM THAT I AM, and there is a place in this world for everyone, if we are humble and brave enough to shine our Light into this world, just the way we ARE. If we are humble and brave enough to do that first, we will be humble and brave enough to accept everyone else just the way he IS. This has always been my ultimate dream and I can truly feel the empowerment in this one. Thank you so much Panache, for this magical journey, I must admit that the book is truly making a difference. Thank you all for joining the ride with all your humble and brave stories, insights and breakthroughs. Love you all. ♥♥♥♥
You are Fantastic Hilde! Thanks for your inner developement and all your beautiful shares here! You have also showed that it is possible to walk this path without the book! I am glad you received it on the Trust Day and I am honored to be your soul-friend! Love and Trust!

Thank you Osang for this wonderful expression. ‘Being back home in ME, trusting all of Me, being RIGHT in being WRONG and embracing it fully’. Yes, I’m very glad and very grateful to arrive there more and more every step we are taking on this journey together. Thank you for YOUR wonderful sharings and for YOUR lovely support. See YOU back HOME in US. ♥♥♥♥
SO BEAUTIFUL OSANG AND HILDE, SHINING OUR LOVE LIGHTS TOGETHER ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥
I LOVE YOUR BRILLIANCE YOUR BEAUTY, THANK YOU DARLINGS, LOVE AND HUGS
Hilde – As I have read your comments over these days I kept feeling a commonality with your journey and it surfaced with this. I too have been on a search & rescue mission for a little over 23 years, knowing that inside there is something much more than I have lived up to then. And I have worked, read, reread, listened and tried. There is something in the presentation, the words, the presence or the energy of Panache that allows some different energy to flow. And totally new perspective and awareness has risen for me. Thank you for all of your wonderful words, feelings and energy. I also just received the book and I agree, the added words does expand the experience. Peace & Blessings to ALL
Indeed Panache is very special…
Yes, he is, Cosmic. And I’m SO grateful for what he’s given us — the book and this 33 Day Path! No “accident” that we’re all here. ❤️
The same for me Dave, although Panache is not telling me anything new, it’s just the way he’s guiding us, that allows me to continu my process in a different way. He’s showing me every little inch of the corner, there is no escape possible, all the hidden stuff, is rising to the surface and I’m very grateful for that. Love and Hugs. ♥♥♥♥
☆ Thank you Hilde for your insights and words, which have touched my heart. I am grateful to share this magical journey with you and everyone into the light and love that we are. May Peace be Yours ~
Hilde ❤️ Yes! Thank You! I too am SO JoyFULL in seeing the benefits! The outer reflects the inner. As above so below. It is our Courage in BEing humble that the ‘fearful, wounded’ ones will be melted by our Shining Light. I applauded everyone’s Humble Brilliance! ☆☆☆
MUCH LOVE TO YOU HILDA DARLING, SO HAPPY TO HAVE YOU ON THIS JOURNEY WITH US ALL TOGETHER, TOGETHER IS AWESOME,,,,,,,,I love the wisdom and the light you bring to us all here, thank you for being you,,,love n hugs
THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR BRILLIANCE AND YOUR LOVE AND LIGHT, IT IS SO WONDERFUL TO BE HERE TOGETHER SHARING THIS HUMBLE BRILLIANT AWAKENING TO LOVE PATH WITH ALL OF YOU, PANACHE, JAN AND TEAM, THANKING YOU ALL WITH ALL MY HEART AND SOUL ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥
Day 24: Wonderful morning chapter and exercise. Humility! 🙂 I have been very supportive in this forum because this is a part of my Light and Strengths from deep withinl I am working at home with my daughter, 3y, and math project.
I remember two years ago I got a prize from my IB class in math to be the most optimistic teacher at my school. It was IB math studies and they don´t like mathematics. They have big exams in may and a pre test in february. I came in the class room with the pre test results, concerned because it was nearly catastrophic,
I saw their shoulders hanging, their eyes full of disbelief, I felt their desperation and failure and I intivitely change me, I told them this can only be better, I believe in You and Your math skills, I was very positive, they needed this and they manage to do a very good exam 3 months later! I wish me and us and all to be able to acknowledge our strengths and use them fully! Love, Light and Support!
Thanks for inspiring the people around you! Keep YOU Light shinning! <3
Ivar, I’m glad to hear you are such a wonderful teacher at mathematics. Such teachers are needed very much at schools. Keep your Light shining brightly my Soul-Friend! Love and Hugs. ♥♥♥♥
YES HILDE, WHAT A WONDERFUL WORLD IT WILL BE WHEN THERE ARE MORE TEACHERS TEACHING WITH LOVE AND ENCOURAGEMENT,,,SHINING OUR LIGHT SO BRIGHT ♥♥♥♥
How wonderful that you have a gift for inspiring your students to BElieve in themselves, Ivar. Love to you
YES TO BELIEVE IN OURSELVES, BELIEVING IN YOU, BELIEVING IN ME,,,BELIEVE IN LOVE, THE LOVE THAT WE ALL ARE
Ivar ~ thank you for being such a sensitive loving man, your love and support has been a light for us all. Your students have a huge blessing, having you as their teacher. Keep shing bright Ivar ~ I see your strengths and you are beautiful! Love to you! ☆
Love to YOU my friend ❤️
((((((((OH IVAR))))))))) HOW WONDERFUL IS THE “MAGIC OF ENCOURAGEMENT”, HELPING TO LIFT US TO A HIGHER LEVEL OF LOVE,,,YOU ARE AWESOME, SO HAPPY YOU ARE HERE, LOVE AND HUGS, IVAR ♥♥♥♥
I just finished some late reply postings on Day 23, and thought I’d peak at what Day 24 is! It is 1:34 a.m. for me… I’m surprised to see the discussion is under way! Yes we have a 24 / 7 world don’t we!! SO I will sleep and check in later! Enjoy your day Beloved Ones! 🙂
Thanks GE! Love and Sleep Well! 🙂
Dear Panache, Humility is a hard thing to accept in ourselves. Who wants to see the bad? I see that everyday. I want to SHINE like you and everyone else on this journey of Love and Growth. I want someone to pat me on the back and say,”Mary, your doing a great job today.!” Not point out all my faults. I know my faults and I live with them everyday and I try to make myself better with every passing moment. I try with every moment to improve, but you know what? I don’t need to improve, because if THE DIVINE made me this way then I am perfect in his eyes and I cannot care what anyone thinks of me. Do you agree or have I missed this whole point totally. I am going to SHINE TODAY because I am worth love and acceptance. Yes, I can do certain things , and no there are many things I cannot do, especially after the Brain Surgery. Why was I on top before I got sick, and then kicked to the curb after I got sick? Why do people treat you that you way? Everyday is a struggle. BUT I TRY MY HARDEST !!!!!!! I Love you Panache, <3 u i^i Mary. I love everyone on this Journey with me. Thank you all for sticking by my side when I needed you the most and giving me the encouragement I needed. Your wonderful, sincere, people. Love u much, Mary
Oh my dear Mary! Your post brought tears in my eyes! You are perfect! As Panache once said, ‘the Divine was not having a bad day when He created You!’ Embrace all that you are, those things we consider ‘bad’ as well as those we consider ‘good’ (should the distinction ever existed!). Above all treat Yourself with Love and Gentleness. Let’s not depend on people to give those to us… we have to find everything in ourselves. I guess we are fully equipped! 😉 It may be difficult, but we are all learning how to do all these things one day at a time. Thanks for this journey, Panache and everyone!!! Love you much!
(((OSANG))) you always touch my heart with your loving ways, thank you for being you, much love and big hugs♥♥♥♥
Mary, you’re doing a great job today!! It is said we are either ‘doing or not doing’, there is no ‘trying’… so TRUST that you are ‘doing and being’ all that you are meant to do and be. You are perfect and perfectly loved, EXACTLY AS YOU ARE! Have a glorious day!
Dear Mary, I know that sometimes, it’s hard to believe that everything that we experience IS perfect, but as you understood very well, ‘if the DIVINE has made YOU that way, then YOU ARE perfect. The only thing you have to do, is to embrace ALL OF YOU as BEING PERFECT yourself. Love and Trust. ♥♥♥♥
MARY, YOU ARE DOING A GREAT JOB TODAY !!!! Mary, you are perfect not in “his” eyes, but her eyes, our eyes and your eyes. You are simply perfect. Closed eyes, deep breath and See the previous you that seems to believe things were better, not “kicked to the curb…”, feel that energy again and let it flow through you. That is as much of who you are in this moment as the images you carry that you feel are dragging you down. That Mary of old is as present today as any Mary. Just be of and in and aware of that Mary and she will once again rise to your body. Love & Blessings my friend. You are not even close to being alone and you are a beautiful being.
((((((MARY)))))) Did you print out the PDF for today where we own and write down our strengths? If not, I strongly encourage you to do that. We ALL have strengths and characteristics that SHINE — it doesn’t seem to be as easy to identify and talk about those as it is the stuff we don’t like about ourselves and tend to beat ourselves up for. Much love to you. ❤️❤️❤️
Mary, you are doing a great job today! Recuperating from a brain trauma, albeit different from your serious brain surgery, I can understand a touch of what you may be feeling. I question – “why did it happen” and find it sometimes difficult to accept the differences of the “new me with restrictions.” A doctor said to me, “God has made you this way and just keep reminding yourself that IT IS OK.” So for whatever reason, I have been divinely touched to be feel different, or slowed down in my path to which I say to myself, “It’s okay.” And then I remember Panache once saying, “The Divine isn’t done yet.” I have every intention of regaining my former self plus! So yes, shine today. You are perfect. Others don’t feel comfortable with what they don’t understand. Unless you go through whatever the circumstances, others just simply don’t know. And what they don’t understand, scares them. They may ask -Could this happen to me? So don’t for one moment believe you were kicked to the curb. This is really their problem, not yours. The loving beings who you need will find their way into your life. The others who “threw you to the curb” will not fit into your enlightened life anyway. At least that’s what I think. I hope this helps. I love you Mary and I’m sticking by your side. Praying you feel better and stronger every day! <3
Dear Mary, YOU are doing a great job today! We get taught to criticize ourselves and others and focus on what we supposedly need ‘to improve’. YOU SHINE AND BE YOUR BRILLIANT SELF,BEing all that you are! I know it sounds ridiculous, but when people don’t know how to BE with something, then they just go to a place of unkindness, quite often. LOVING YOU
Agree, you are perfect and so beutiful! Thanks for being You! 🙂
☆ Baby steps, Mary and just keep your forward motion, you are doing a great job today and every day. Love and acceptance are yours and you are not alone.
Wishing you peace in your recovery and sending you light and love and hugs. You can do it Mary, keep doing what you are doing. I already see you shining bright! ☆
I AM proud of YOU ❤️
LOVE YOUR LOVE LIGHT MARY♥♥♥♥JUST KEEP THAT LOVE LIGHT SHINING AND ALL THE SHADOWS AROUND YOU WILL DISAPPEAR♥♥♥♥HAPPY YOU ARE HERE

❤️Wendy! Yes You are Spectacularly Awesome and AWEmazing and I Am too! We All Shine On ❤️
I LOVE THAT WENDY, “SPECTACULARLY AWESOME”,,,I LOVE YOU, I LOVE ME, JUST THE WAY IT IS MEANT TO BE♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥
This daily practice is really helping me. Today’s particular topic has been a hard one for me. Being raised in strict fundamentalist religious home, I was taught that being proud of yourself is sinful. I struggle with owning my talents and not down playing. Many times I have taught others to treat me as less. But I am healing….each day I am getting better even though in many ways life is not that smooth for me. I am taking care of my elderly mom as she declines with age and I just got let go from another job (my work situation has been a struggle for years now due to the area I live in and the economy). But like I said…this is really helping. I think I may have to go through these exercises and the book more than once though!!! 🙂 Thank you everyone for sharing. Peace and love to you.
I had similar experience in childhood. Lovingly embrace all that we are and Life will open up! Love and Light!
Peace and Love to YOU sweet sister ❤️
MUCH LOVE TO YOU LISA,,,imagine that. sinful to be PROUD of yourself, where is the LOVE in that? I am PROUD of WHO YOU ARE, LOVE IS WHO YOU ARE and I am so happy you are here with such a loving soulful family to support you on your way,,,losing your job may mean there is something better around the corner for you,,,♥♥♥♥YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL♥♥♥♥
Certainly there are parts of me that I would love to ignore and forget about, but one truth that I know for sure is when I come into alignment with my true self I feel secure, peaceful and confident, I feel I can move mountains. Whereas when I’m not in alignment, I stumble, fall and feel unworthy. On this day I will humbly will embrace every aspect of who I am and make no apologies. I accept who I AM.
(((ANNE))) You GO, girl! ❤️
Love what you wrote, Anne. It is absolutely true. Being into alignment rocks! What you said: “I will humbly embrace every aspect of who I am and make no apologies. I accept who I AM” is going to be my mantra today. Thank you, Anne, with love.
I Love ALL of YOU ANNE♥♥♥♥YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL
Breakdown. Meltdown. Listened to Fear, Anger and Sadness while trading healing with a friend today. Looked my Dragon in the eye. All the hurt all the defence all ALERT! Lost the EXIT-sign in the darkness and got blind from not seeing light in so long. Thanks Panache for your Devine teachings <3 Hoping to talk to you at the call tonight <3
…then it’s time to let Your Light shine, Stina! Yey!
SEEING YOUR LOVE LIGHT SHINING STINA, we are here for you, loving you all the way
I like this one, it’s always nice to give yourself on the back for something you accomplished. Keep the good work up friends……this, for instance, has taken commitment on our part, whether your life has completely changed or not, demonstrates our desire to open the window and allow some fresh air to blow in. hugs
Ouch! All day I’ve been struggling with my humility, chanting my favourite prayer under my breath in a challenging situation; Lord keep me humble, keep me humble. An aching for humility that I not be a disgrace. Feeling the shameful power of an ego trip. I didn’t realise today is Humility. ‘I know something about you’ OH Nooo. BUSTED! Then I read on more comfortably agreeing I am those things. Yes that’s me. Then I was Gobsmacked. Did not see that coming. Followed exercise. Nice. Foreign but nice. The last inspiration, or is it truth?, challenged me to my core. Major internal conflict. When I own my shortcomings I do feel more humble…more worthy! My energy is much nicer. I’m nicer. That makes life more gentle. I can see the duality and program stuff here that keeps us separated. Oneness includes it all right. ‘Go ahead and shine your light’ is a bit too powerful to do right now, but you have just exploded all those years of punishment for having lack of humility. Seriously Toast!
Love and Light!
Have the courage to own all that YOU already are ❤️
LOVE AND HUGS KK, so happy you are here with all this wonderful love and support, bless your heart
I AM that I AM. To embrace all that I am is to embrace life, it is to acknowledge and love the Divine within. Accepting all that I am is freedom. I love humility as it sets me free to shine with a loving smile.
I have realized that my patterns are the same here. I start everything with joy and I give it all. Few days later I stop or make sure I don’t carry on. This is with every area in my life. In my family I did the same I would love , do everything to be loved, didn’t work would be angry, lash out , over eat , and star again. With this book. I bought the ebook and the audio. All enthusiastic – finally I am on my way! I thought – gave up on day 3. Came back tried again, get to lazy read, and distract myself with something else. If it is for someone else I am in -to prove show how great, dependent, honest and etc. When they don’t give what I think I worth in value. The critic comes in with all the bla, bla . So we smoke, or eat or even sometimes wants to steal from others. I obeserve all this I know this not me . Like tonight I know I can phone in and talk to Panache and have done with others “celebrities” in this “awakening” path – I prove to myself is not going to work. aIrport keep telling myself , I am so tired of this.Obviously I love this or I would be here .
Embrace all that you are at this moment. Please receive the hug I am sending you!!! 😉
Adriana, you are acknowledging a pattern within yourself. This is good. This is the first step needed in order to change the pattern. Stay connected. Know that you are supported and loved every step of the way. Take a conscious breath. Just one. Then another. They add up. I love you and will think good thoughts your way today. Remember what Panache says: You’re not broken and you don’t need fixing! :)))
Hi Adriana, I started a lot myself, and I gave up a lot myself, but in this process, I never gave up on ME, that persistence has pulled me over the edge to continue my journey, embracing ALL OF ME over and over again, until I will be that Shining Star I truly AM. I would just like to invite you, not to give up on YOU. Keep on embracing ALL OF YOU, over and over again, until you will be that Shining Star yourself. With all the support here, you will succeed. It’s your own ‘Free Will’s choice’. Love and Support. ♥♥♥♥
Adriana – What you are describing, has for me, been the physical Dave, the Ego, and yes it always seems to jump in. As with the others, I would say stick with this. Don’t “MAKE” it be anything, Don’t create some story about how “IT” is going to change you, just stay here and allow it to be. Don’t look for anything, just breath, read, listen and allow. Let it unfold. You will be shocked, surprised and loving what slowly begins to rise inside of you. Then, you and you alone will choose what to do with this new Adriana. Enjoy the ride, life is a exciting and wonderful journey. Peace & Blessings
I love that Dave…let it unfold.
Hi Adriana…not sure I understand completely what you are conveying, but sounds like you are struggling. I so admire your courage for sharing the struggle. I too get disappointed when I meet the parts of me that are resistant to this process, but I know that’s what we are doing…dredging up the parts that are stuck in the patterns so I am doing my best to flow with them. I dropped for 3 days when I went to NH even though I read the chapters I had sort of tuned out. I ate junk the whole weekend (hadn’t done that in months). I got so angry at my sis-in-law’s sister. This was the first time I met her and she was insulting, sarcastic and condescending especially to my younger brother of whom I am very protective. I couldn’t escape the anger, I didn’t feel I could even calmly put her in her place lest I upset my sis-in-law. I am just now realizing (it’s been a few days) that even though I was highly aggitated, I was able to see her insecurity through her rudeness. It was rather transparent to me actually. For me, the deeper realization was that my interaction with her revolved around being abused as a child and not being able to speak up lest I get beat harder and longer, hurt someone else even though I was being hurt, and not being able to scream “no, stop it, enough!”
I was so disappointed in myself for feeling so much anger thinking I should be above reacting this way. After all, I’ve worked on this stuff for over 20 years at nausium. The last thing I want to do is send love to my anger so instead I am doing what Matt Kahn suggests, to send love to the part of me that is affected by the anger. The part that feels disappointed in me. And of course, as Panache suggests being greatful for everything. These two little shifts in perspective have helped me. The anger is really spot on and is doing a fine job of alerting me to the deeper issue. It’s when the feelings begin to pile on top of one another, the anger is judged, that it gets really convoluted and mucky. I think some of us get trapped in wanting to become a better version of ourselves and we use self help tools, mentors and mantras to try to get there. I know that’s how I started my journey. This vision of a perfect self that always eluded me, but I know in my heart of hearts that I already am the best version of myself. I already am perfect right here, right now. I just haven’t completely embodied that concept yet. This journey for me is about embodying the truth, melting into complete acceptance and embracing/surrendering moment by moment. I already know, you know, we all know. In your last line you said, “obviously I love this or I wouldn’t (I think you meant wouldn’t) be here.” You already know this and that’s why you are here. Panache is reminding you, all of us, of what we already know and encouraging us, actually showing us a way to embody it.
Love and Care Colleen!
Beautiful thoughts, beautifully expressed. Thank you for your insights, Colleen!
(((COLLEEN))) you’ve come a long way BABY and I am so PROUD of YOU, Loving you all the way,,,I think we all need a group HUG, Bless you ALL♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥LOVE TO YOU ALL
(((ADRIANA))) Thank you so much for having the courage to share so authentically — not “sugarcoating” anything. My hope is that you’re not judging yourself harshly for some of the behaviors you may have labeled “bad.” Hang in there, keep reading the book, and ALLOW all of us to support you on your journey. You are worth it! Much love to you. ❤️❤️❤️
Dear Adriana, your honesty in admitting this shows you have deep courage. I know what you mean about giving up, I have also tried to quit, but I recognize within myself that I have a determined attitude and a deepseated belief in Panache and this process that will not allow that part of me to stop. I believe you must possess this in yourself as well, otherwise you would not have returned each time. Listen to your heart. Love yourself and trust that it is all going to be fine. Hang in there and join the call tonight. Treat yourself to this.
Love, Light and Peace!
Adriana, we are not broken, but at times we may feel lost……you are in the best place of your life here, reading Panache’s book and engaging with the energy of everyone participating. We all have the blessing of this book and all that Panache shares with us as an opportunity to look at ourselves and in turn others with new eyes. Love and big hugs to you ~ ☆ Let your timing be your own,
all is well.

Just read through all of today’s comments and feel so supported by your energy. Thank you to everyone on this journey, and for all who took the time to share.
It’s all about love; and my ability to love.
My strengths: cheerful, uplifting, people person, good listener, Yoga, compassionate, empathetic, reflective, learning new things, easy to talk to, good with kids and animals. Weaknesses: crafts, art, insecure, comparing myself to others, neurotic, can be critical at times, flaky, distracted easily. I love my strengths and my weaknesses. Why try to be someone I’m not, or hide who I am?? I loved this exercise and this definition of humility.
Loving all of You!
We all have an eternal flame flickering inside of us. The pilot light that has kept us searching for this moment. It’s exciting, isn’t it? To be or not to be? That IS the question! LET IT SHINE! LET IT SHINE! LET IT SHINE! Have an incredible day.
Never thought I would look at humility like this. I feel free to know that I can embrace all of who I am, even the ugly dark places. Freedom has arrived. Yes I am ready to shine my light and it feels so very good. I open up the shade and I see what I did not allow myself to see before and it’s okay every part of me is of God and how can you go wrong with that!
Great Anne! Love and Strength!
What an interesting exercise. I had to stop at each and every line. First my Ego or Brain would start running rapidly with all the things I used to do that we both thought we great. But, I could feel some tugging inside and a voice asking “Is this really you and who you see TODAY?” And the words that came were short and simple and real. Looking back at my list and responses, they are not anything that the old me would think as being of much value, but I am happy with what I see of me in this moment. This is a great tool for me and feels like something that I will revisit often. Being honest with my SELF about who I am and what is of value to the me. I take this energy forward in my day and hold humility and the power of this awareness with me.
Again, thanks to everyone in this energy and process. What a gift this is.
What a GIFT INDEED DAVE,,,Namaste
Humility. Panache, you blew me away with your explanation! Humility to me has always been downplaying my gifts to fit in. I’m the person you mention who doesn’t want her gifts singled out for recognition. I’m fine to have my looks or clothing complimented “Oh, you look nice today” but don’t say “you are really good at–“. And I can give you chapter and verse on all my faults and join in complaining or pity party. I give you my shadow so you you won’t reject me for being smarter, better than you in another way. I shudder when people “blow their own horn”. My ex was constantly telling people how good he was at his job or as a parent. I was usually true, but why did he HAVE to point it out to them. My friends get really upset when I downplay my gifts and won’t share what I know in groups or with someone new who doesn’t know me well. And at the same time, I crave approval. How messed up is that? Doing the worksheet today was difficult because I couldn’t think what people would say my gifts were or how I would want to be remembered after death. It is a real eye-opener.
(((CHERYL ROSE))) I really resonated with a lot of what you shared. I’ll post my experience of this exercise below. We ALL seem to be very good at emphasizing our faults. Let’s ditch that, shall we? Much love to you. ❤️❤️❤️
YA, ditch that, delete delete delete all that is not for our HIGHEST GOOD, haha, love and BIG HUGS♥♥♥♥We SHALL, and Let Our Love Lights SHINE ON
Love and Greatness!
I’m loving the book, this 33 day path, but I don’t know how to fill in today’s exercise. I’m stuck, I know it’s because I don’t really know myself at this point, but it makes me sad to have such a hard time with today’s exercise. Thank you
Monica – Having a hard time is a very good thing. Means you are engaged and moving. You say you don’t know yourself? I feel you know yourself rather well. but possibly, like many of us, you don’t want to LOOK at yourself or ACCEPT yourself. Which would then be a clear answer to your being stuck. Does that make sense? I had to really stop and let my inner voice and my soul self come up this morning to do this exercise. My Ego and Brain were taking me exactly to where it sounds like you are sitting, not being able to really see anything that felt like it was me in the answers I wanted to type. I didn’t like them and they didn’t feel like the right piece of clothing to put on. So, I sat with the worksheet, blank, staring back at me and had a conversation with my inner self and my guides. You have these also. Slowly I began to hear, allow and accept some visions of what really is me today. What I know I see and hear when I look in the mirror and what I believe others see in me TODAY, in this moment. It is there Monica, just not in the piece of you that you are looking right now. It is somewhere inside. As Panache reminded us a few days ago – STOP, SLOW DOWN & BREATH. Watch our breath and feel the moment and our true self. You will find that the “hard time..” will slowly dissipate, allowing the Divine Monica to speak.
Dave G, thank you so much for your beautiful, kind words of encouragement. They have helped me get a different perspective on this, especially after receiving news today that really made me doubt myself. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, thank you.
Hang in there, Monica! Even if you are only able to write down ONE “good” trait, do that and allow yourself to feel and believe the truth of it. Much love to you. ❤️❤️❤️
Thank you, Carol!
You’re most welcome, Monica. ❤️
MAGNIFICENTLY AWESOME,,,LOVING YOU ALL SHINING ON
Humility brought me to my PITY party. What am I good at? I realized I always go there when I’m asked this question. Digging a little deeper up pops “I’m not good enough”. I seem unable to work through this, it’s like a comfort zone. I know where this comes from and thought I had worked through it but here it is again. Any suggestions? Namaste
I’m right next to you, Dona! Namaste
(((DONA))) “I’m not good enough” pops up for me too. I think it may KEEP showing up for me to accept, love and release. It’s so deeply ingrained in most of us and in our “cultural conversation” that it will not be “handled” in just a few “sessions” of working with it. Hang in there. What I’m doing is noticing when it shows up and loving myself through it. I did that on “gripe day.” I saw that when I feel “better than,” it’s masking “not good enough.” Much love to you. ❤️❤️❤️
here we are on day 24, what an experience ! i’m sure life has changed how we perceive things over the years or in a flash. taking the time to look inside of yourself, is self-discovery and to get to know yourself. who has time for that ? what was important at one time may not be so important today. i am in humility, with the beauty, the support, and the courage that is being expressed and everyone who is part of the journey now or in the near time. however you are participating in this voyage makes a difference in all of our lifes, we are all a piece of that ever changing puzzle. may our light shine so brightly that is it is blinding ! deep thanks, many blessings, and LoVe to all of us, to pananche, jan, twins, & team.
Love and Support!
WE ARE ALL CREATING THIS MASTERPIECE TOGETHER AND IT IS MAGNIFICENT, SPECTACULARLY MAGNIFICENT,,,Love and Hugs to EVERYONE♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥
In the aftermath of yesterday’s chapter I had a breakdown this morning although I went to bed in peace and trust. More triggers in today’s chapter and yesterday’s comments. My mind somehow got entangled in this pre-ordained and soul agenda thing, pulling up the scenario that it might be my soul agenda to stay sick and end up in a wheelchair and nursery home. I stayed with the emotions instead of my thoughts and in the midst of all this emotional turmoil I surrendered. Emotions flow through and out of me and I was left with a feeling of clarity, similar like the world feels after a major thunderstorm, and the words: “You don’t know if it is going to get any better – but you also don’t know if it is going to get any worse.” Somehow this opened a new space within me and it felt as if I could briefly see and feel into infinity, into the infinite nature of the Divine, into infinite possibilites. I don’t know ANYTHING. I cannot possibly know. This is the beauty in this “I don’t know”. My mind was trying to comprehend infinity, which is not possible. I feel very tired today and also got sick. I am grateful for this. It feels like a shift in me. Time to BE with myself. Thank you all for shining YOUR light today!
((((((SABINE)))))) This is such GOOD NEWS, although all of it may not feel so good. It feels to me like a HUGE breakthrough. I’m going to adopt the phrase, “I don’t know if it is going to get any better — but I don’t know if it is going to get any worse.” BRILLIANT! Maybe all of us “control freaks” can adopt this as a mantra! Ya think? Blessings to you, dear one. Here’s hoping the illness moves through you quickly. Much love to you. ❤️❤️❤️
Take well care of yourself and be kind to yourself! Love and Health!
(((SABINE))) You are AMAZING,,,illness, HEALING crisis??? AWESOME!!! You’ve come a long way BABY, time to nurture yourself,,,Sending Healing Love and Light Your Way, Darling♥♥♥♥
The bigger the light, the bigger the shadow. I heard that before. Or wherever there is light, there is also a shadow. Yet, I have to remind myself that the reversion is also true: Wherever there is a shadow, there must be a light. I am aquainted with my shadow. I got to know him very well. Yet, I tend to forget, that beyond the shadow there also must be a light. Today I am willing to look for the light in me! Shining for myself!
Fabulous breakthrough, ((( SABINE ))). SHINE ON!!! x
Light comes first and then shadow! Love, Peace and Light!
Yes Sabine, it feels good to honor and accept our Light and our Shadow. It is in embracing all that we are, that we are made whole. Like the concept of yin and yang, it takes both. We are so blessed to be here, learning, sharing, becoming ourselves. Much love and peace to you ~ shine on beautiful Sabine! ☆
HERE I AM ~~THIS IS ME~~THIS IS ALL OF ME~~I AM GRATEFUL. ~~
I am writing to ask for some prayers as I have been facing my ultimate mirror my twin sister who is challenging me on every level. I am not sure what to do other then let go. I have been feeling my feelings, setting boundaries (admittedly not as gracefully as I like, but at least I am doing it!) I have allowed her to penetrate my mind with fear and that the path I have chosen is the wrong path and that if I do not recognize christ as my savior then I am going to die. This is so hard because I want to be open minded, I am finally coming to accept the truth that I have known since childhood that I am here to be a teacher of love. This is a big test, I know I can get through this. I just need that extra love and support. Thank You!
Much love to you, Alex! Stay true to what YOUR soul expression is. I know it’s hard in the face of criticism from a loved one. I recognize and love Jesus as a master teacher — one of MANY. I extricated myself from fundamentalist Christianity when I was 17 and have incorporated snippets of wisdom from ALL of the major world religions and created my own spiritual expression. Hang in there and create your OWN spiritual expression that suits YOU. Yes, it’s good to be open-minded, and often difficult to do with people who are close-minded. ❤️❤️❤️
Thank you Carol! I appreciate your support!
You’re very welcome, Alex. ❤️
Much love and support ((( ALEX )))
Dear Alex, now this is my territory for sure because I am also a twin and I think I know actually where you are, although my situation is not religious like yours, mine does revolve around this path I’ve chosen that she doesn’t really believe in. So I find it hard to tell her about what I need for myself, which is simply needing space, simple really, but I love her so much that I don’t know how to tell her to leave me alone and go back to her own home without hurting her. For you see my belief is that twins share a bond much closer than any other sibling, so her pain is going to cause me pain and this thought leaves me feeling stuck. Like you, I feel like I’m being tested. Thank you for posting this. With courage and determination we will triumph over this pain. Hang in there and don’t lose faith.
Thank You Anne! We will overcome this. Love to you!
Sorry, don’t know why this posted twice. Team Desai, please delete one. Thanks.
Oh my goodness Alex! A twin…so close…that is heavy, heavy, heavy burden your sister is carrying. So much fear. It must be so heavy she’s backing up the dump truck and trying to off-load on you. When I first became aware of my journey (over 20 years now) I was seeing a counselor for debilitating panic attacks. A very spiritual man who opened my eyes to new perspectives. I remember my Mother saying I would be sucked into a cult and she feared for my safety. She insisted I stop immediately and when that didn’t work insisted on meeting with my counselor. That didn’t go very well as you can imagine as they were on two different frequencies. Years later even though she is still fearful for herself, she is no longer fearful for me. Through the years I found that a lot of people (Christians) were interested in what I was doing and the first thing they wanted to know is if I believed in Jesus because I believe that somehow that made them less fearful. Well, I do love Jesus as a loving, healing and supremely healing energy for me personally, so I guess it’s easy for people to relate to me in that respect. I love Buddha, Kuan Yin, and others too. How can the teachings of such a loving gift to our planet be so distorted? I never push a philosophy, way of being or thinking on anyone. I rarely talk about what I do or spiritual matters to anyone except my husband, but I must exude something they are curious about. They feel soothed by me, sense I am different, even though I am really not different from them. I always say spirit knows spirit so we all know the truth, we are just remembering at different rates. You are perhaps challanging her status quo. She’s also probably fearful that you are leaving her behind. Some of your fear may not even be about the things you are hearing, but that you are leaving her as well. You never really go anywhere unless you want to, but you can choose to learn to relate on a different level. I have heard it all through the years. You asked for help so perhaps sharing the two things that freed me from the intimidation stuff will help you too, 1) It’s completely implausible and simply outrageous to me that a loving and reverent Jesus would condemn 2/3’s of the world population (approx. 1/3 is Christian) to hell or try to scare people into following him and, 2) Over 40% of the US population (couldn’t find world stats) don’t even believe in hell. Regardless of what side of the fence you are on about hell, consider that the interpretation of Jesus saying, “I am the way, the truth, and the life,” could be distorted. To me, he was simply referring to the great I AM presence, hence, knowing the I AM is the truth, the way, the truth, the life. Hope that helps. Nothing to fear…nothing to fear.
Thank you for your support Colleen! I do feel it is time for me to move on with my path, we currently live together and I know I need to move. I know I hold some guilt about owning my truth and being powerful because she does not feel that about herself. There is a gift that has come out of this that I am excited about and it is that I feel true love for her like I never had before because I always saw her as putting a wrench in my path. Now I see that she loves me (I always questioned that) and is just scared and wants me to be safe. Thank you again!
Fantastic Alex! Hugs to you…
☆ Alex, you have been growing and have left your comfort zone and she may feel some panic, and not be ready to leave her own comfort zone. Listen to your heart and allow both of you to be who you are. Just BE and allow time to let your new found energy resonate with her. With prayers of love and support for you both ~
Thank you Goldnrose and thank you for supporting my sister as well!
ALEX DARLING,,,follow the LOVE IN YOUR HEART, you will find your way,
some may not agree but you and only YOU know what your HEART WANTS,,,follow your HEART, follow your LOVE, follow your LIGHT and SHINE SO BRIGHT,,,
the others just may come along with you when they feel the shifts taking place, it is such a WONDERFUL place to be, happy and free,,,you have such wonderful loving support to help you on your way, WE ARE ALL HERE LOVING YOU ALL THE WAY, Sweet ALEX♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥TEACHER OF LOVE
“The news came upon a winged bird, reluctant to caryy the news”
May we remember Dr. Maya Angelou today. We have lost one of our greatest gifts of love and humility.
Beautiful, Taz! We have only lost Maya Angelou’s “physical presence” — not her “gifts of love and humanity.” Those will live on for generations to come. ❤️
I have to confess that I’m struggling with Humility. I was absolutely resistant to Shame and, now, facing Humility I’m confused! I’m one of those who held humility as not shining so as not to make someone else feel badly. I’ve done many things in my life and done them, at least, fairly well but I did it so as not to feel shame! I haven’t done the exercise yet because there’s a piece of me that says I don’t really know myself. I didn’t embrace other’s praise of what I did well but you can bet criticism was taken in! I’m going to leave this as is for now so that I can sit with this some more. I am grateful to You, once again, for this sacred space that allows me to BE.
Kenn, Maya Angelou is a perfect example of humility. She believed in herself n her work with such tenacity only never believing her importance was beyond any other human being. She followed her beliefs while working her crafts living her gifts giving and leaving the world a much better place because she visited it for 86 years.
Again tears fall for loss only not without the gratitude of the gift of her life.
((((((KENN)))))) I can SO relate to what you shared! I’ve only partially completed my “humility list.” I noticed it was A LOT easier to emphasize my flaws than my strengths. I’m sitting with this one as well — and will complete the exercise by the end of today. ❤️
(((CAROL DARLING))) YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL,,,YOU ARE LOVE
Love to you, Kenn.
(((KENN DARLING))) EMBRACING THE LOVE LIGHT THAT YOU ARE, YOU ARE MAGNIFICENT♥♥♥♥
“Listen to yourself and in this quietude you may hear the voice of God” Maya Angelou’s last tweet.
☆ Taz ~ indeed joining you in love and respect for Maya Angelou. An angel among us, sharing her light and love with the world. She also spoke about being grateful for All experiences and said Thank You to it All. A beautiful authentic woman and we have so much to remember her by in her example of how to live life with an open heart. Peace and love to you ~ ☆
Gosh, I think that today I have felt every part of my shadow. I have been reminded of times that I wanted to forget and I have felt a lot of shame, fear, self hatred. I even wrote in my diary how a certain person had been annoying me, and I was congratulating myself on how well I had described her faults (!!) I know that anything that we see in another is that which I have not embraced in myself, so I thank this person for teaching me about myself, and I am humbled. Looking forward to the call tomorrow.
WOW! I just got the book the other day. I have, for some reason felt that I was supposed to go and start at Day 1 with the book. For some reason, which I now am thankful for, I knew to go out and jump to today. My word, what an expansion of this web exercise. The words in the book for “Morning” just blew me away. What a great presentation Panache. I had already done the pdf exercise and then reading your words just brought forth this immense warm energy of self understand and connection. It is the allowing my inner being to feel the humbleness, but at the same time the gratitude for these parts of me. To be able to ACCEPT and feel grateful for all of these parts of me. I feel such a release of something this morning. I cannot and am not going to try to define this, but a calmness has set in and I am allowing all to just BE, including this physical being playing on planet earth with all of the other beings.
Thank you Panache for this and thank you all for being here as we shift the energy of the universe, one being and one moment at a time.
WOW THAT IS FASCINATING! – NO ONE PART IS BETTER THEN THE OTHER. I WILL EMBRACE THAT AS I LIVE MY DAY.
I’m struggling I can’t lie…..I don’t share easily so this in itself it a PUSH for me….no journals for me. No diaries for me as a child growing up. Big trouble if you shared what your emotions were if it wasn’t was deemed “Positive”. You’re living poor, deal with it. Being bullied in school, deal with it. The TRUST subject continues to be big for me. I grew up only telling Jesus my inner most thoughts, couldn’t get in trouble from him….or so I thought…it was then drummed into me through the Catholic religion what a great disappointment I truly was as it seemed daily I would break at least one commandment….I know my shadow side well, no need to dig deep for that. Now….acknowledging my “shinning” side that’s another story. Growing up with being told that when I did do something well, or had accomplished something that meant a lot to me… “Don’t go pinning medals on yourself”, “You’re putting a feather in your own cap”, you got on all those teams because you practiced, not because you’re naturally gifted, (not those words but it is how the message got into my head). State an emotion and you’re told there is ALWAYS someone else that has it worse then you…I wasn’t completing for something, just wanting to share how I felt. No crying, no moaning, no complaining no anything that didn’t keep things rosy and bright.
I was raised to be Humble…..which in the translation meant, to stay small, unnoticed to not go around giving yourself credit for anything. It was well pointed out by so many, not just my Mother, just what a truly gifted person was. And that surly wasn’t me.
By taking many of your 21 Day journeys Panache I have found deep inside of me just what a gift I am by just being ME….the I AM THAT I AM, and that is enough. I will say I have to drum it into my own head every day, sometimes, moment to moment but you have taught me to be Still, to stay aware of my breath and in that stillness I have found the small wounded child that is so afraid to be seen, of doing things wrong and is still so shut down that I cry daily for her sadness that has been so locked deep inside for so long. And so I will continue to allow all of me to be shown to the world, when, I’m not sure as I’ve made myself a prisoner and find it hard to leave the house now and be seen. I’ve lost all of my confidence in myself that I used to have (maybe when I had it, it wasn’t real anyway, just another game I was playing) but as long as I’m here I would imagine there is a great Plan unfolding.
Funny because with all of these “inside feelings” of unworthiness, as an adult now I am the Favorite of the family……why, I have no idea. My adult children think I am walking Peace and constantly look to me for guidance, my Grandchildren think I’m the best, funnest and coolest Nana ever, my sisters, I have three, each state that I’m their favorite but yet hold Great resentment of the fact that I am my Mother’s “Chosen One”. All of these things keep me in review of my Unworthiness…So for me, reviewing where I am Humble meant bowing out of any kind of “Shining” of my gifts to the world……time to reassess what Humble truly means…Thank you Panache for nudging me in the Awareness of the Balance of being Humble. I love you and I thank you for loving me enough to keep me pushing past myself imposed limitations……..xoxo
I HEAR you Georgette! Much love to you, sister!
Dear Sweet Georgette, YOU ARE a SHINING GIFT to THE WORLD!!! Bless You
((((((GEORGETTE)))))) I second what Carol Gould said. You ARE a shining gift to YOURSELF and the world. All the blah blah blah you internalized isn’t REAL, although it may still have a hold on you. Let it go. That’s not who you are. Much love to you. ❤️❤️❤️
I third that,,,,,,,Love is who you Truly Are♥♥♥♥Bless Your Heart
((( GEORGETTE ))) Much love to you
Georgette – Please come back and keep sharing. Starting a journal may be kind of a fun and cool thing for you. Daily push to the other side so to speak. Your presence shows through your words. Thank you and you are pushing your self, others are helping show you ways, but the pushing is from withing. Have fun.
A LOVE Journal about all the wonderful things that are unfolding for you and focus on the Love that it brings,,,,,,,,,love and hugs to all
Wow Georgette…I can understand what you are going through. Someone once told me that you know you’ve “made it” when you can be greatful for everything that ever happened to you. Sounds kind of cliche, but it really is so true. Being raised in the Catholic church, then going through years of feeling angry/victimized/manipulated by the church, then figuring it out and finding gratitude that I learned about a loving Jesus, angels, Mary, the saints, etc. I also know the “suck it up mentality” being raised Irish, but discovered that it was enormously helpful to me in so many ways. I developed such strength of body, mind and spirit. Thanks for sharing your reluctance to speak out because I too was very hesitant at first. I don’t normally share my stuff with anyone unless I hire a counselor to do so…lol, not kidding though. Everyone on this forum is so welcoming, so supportive and it just feels more real and genuine. I told my husband I felt like I was sucked in to some kind of love vortex in this forum from practically Day 1 of this journey. Then a gradually, feeling safer to write/read more and more. Sharing an insight or just giving a little cyber loving nod to a fellow 33 day Pathfinder. Those courageous souls, like you, that are vulnerable enough to, as Panache would say on page 177, “To say, I am greatful. I am here. I will own that part of myself. I will not diminish myself — because, in so doing, I diminish You.” and then, “In this way, you are able to turn to another candle and — with strength and dignity — offer your light, and say: Yes, yes this is me.” It feels vulnerable and scary, but I am not the vulnerable/scary and not the mediocre, nor are my fellow 33 Day Pathfinders, and neither are you.
(((GEORGETTE DARLING))) i Hear You,,,I See You,,,YOU ARE SUCH A SHINING LIGHT,,,others can see it, WILL YOU EMBRACE IT TOO,,,SHINE ON SWEET GEORGETTE, LOVE, LIGHT and HUGS,,,LOVING ALL THAT IS YOU♥♥♥♥We are all here with you Darling
Self-expression without self-importance, that is authenticity and humility to me. Loving myself and my unique soul signature while simultaneously loving the multiplicity of wondrous soul signatures all around me. We are ALL awesome beings of love & light. Individually and collectively, we shine, reflecting one another’s brilliance!! ♥ ♥
There is a reason for divine design of our lives. We are the magnificent creators of our lives – all parts of our lives, each and every challenge, flaw, strength and gift. This is who we are. I embrace each and every part of me!!!!
To be proud of one’s accomplishments has often been characterized as a negative trait. It was for sure that way in my family. For instance, I am a great cook. I can take a recipe for something that is unhealthy but oh so yummy and make it healthy and even more yummier. But I would never admit to my talent since my mother was an executive chef and how could I live up to her, the only person in my life who loved my unconditionally. But if you live long enough you learn. I am extremely talented in many areas and will admit it to myself and to others, even though they berate me for it, most of the time while they are smacking their lips eating the delights I have dreamed up for them.
Janet, I see this characterization of pride in our accomplishments as “negative” as part of our conditioning received from family, society and church. And it runs DEEP. How many of us have heard some version of “don’t toot your own horn”? I am also very talented in many areas and have difficulty acknowledging those talents. ❤️❤️❤️
JANET DARLING, your MOM Loved YOU UNCONDITIONALLY, she LOVED ALL OF WHO YOU ARE, I am sure she would be so PROUD of you embracing YOUR TALENTS, EVERY ONE OF THEM,,,
I never did like competition, I believe the ONLY ones we need to compete with is OURSELVES, to bring out the Very BEST IN US, ,,Shining Our Light and Helping others feel brave/strong enough to SHINE THEIRS,,,,,,,,,,SHINE ON DARLINGS
Well, this exercise is an eye-opener! Like many of us, it’s MUCH easier for me to recite the litany of my faults and failures than acknowledge and honor my strengths and gifts. I have written down SOME of the latter but stopped myself with a deluge of the “other ones.” I CAN shared what I want to be remembered for on my death bed: “She was a loving catalyst for transformation in the world.” More later as I complete my list.
Kudos to your death bed statement. Love it! <3
Thank you, Donna! ❤️
I love your deathbed statement too, Carol. x
Thank you, Kaye! ❤️
HMMMMMMMMM…CAROL, THAT FEELS QUITE POWERFUL!
YES I CAN,,,HOORAY CAROL
The last couple of years, while my Mom was fairly confined and ill, I would read to her, usually my own writings, when I visited her almost daily. Her eyes would dance with proudness. And I would say, “Well didn’t you know how talented your daughter was? I’m terrific.” When I would share my music, artwork or photographs, she would tell me how fabulous they were. I would say, “Of course, there’s a lot of talent in this body. You are the lucky mother of a truly gifted child.” We would both laugh at my audacity. Well, Mom died four months ago, and I’m feeling I lost my best friend and am not so bold anymore. I miss my Mom on so many levels, beyond of course, having lost my personal fan club. Thanks Mom for allowing me to be open, free and show my awesomeness unconditionally. So I am taking this opportunity to shout out to all of my loving friends here, “I AM AWESOME.” I think Mom is smiling at this.
I’m so moved by your share, Donna. YAY YOU! And you ARE AWESOME! ❤️
Thank you, Carol. YOU TOO ARE AWESOME! <3
Donna you gave your Mom the most precious gifts imaginable, and they will remain with her always. Your Mom is smiling and proud and loves you more than words can say. What a blessing the time you both shared, very loving! You are both Awesome! Peace and love to you ~ ☆
I love your audacity. You brought tears to my eyes Donna.
Your MOM is still cheering you on, LOVING YOU ALL THE WAY ON YOUR JOURNEY, DONNA DARLING
YES, YOU ARE AWESOME, I can see your Mom SMILING,,,she will always be your biggest fan
Sometimes my most unexpected breakdowns/breakthroughs are the biggest and most needed. I finally shed my inner critic toward the way I look. What a relief. I just cried and cried, I don’t think I’ve cried that long in a long time, it felt so good to see all the areas where I criticize myself physically, I’m fat, not enough, my stomach is too big, my butt is too big or not high enough, my skin is not shiny enough, whatever it is it all came rolling down me like a storm raging for my front door, in and out of my energy field like a tornado. When I finally got up and stopped crying I realized all that time wasted “hating on” myself when really I should just be grateful. Feels and felt so good to come to a place of gratitude and really appreciate all I have and acknowledge the true blessing it is to be beautiful on the inside and out and radiate positive energy toward others so they can feel the same way. There is never actually a reason to critisize ourselves physically from where I stand now. I was able to see all the hatred required for us to do that to ourselves even for one day, it’s not necessary. I love myself now and always. Thank you.
YES, Tanya! ❤️
(((YOU ARE AWESOME TANYA)))
Hello everyone its nice to be part of this journey ! Thank you for all your comments, very uplifiting and supportive.
I am going through several changes as many of you, and i m glad that i can come here and share, it helps a lot. Thanks for the opportunity Panache. Trust and humility, i have to admit that these two concepts have been a bit broken for me lately, especially trust in myself due to bad decisions i think not based in trust. I am scared of the situation but hopefully every situation presents us to learn and come out stronger. for some reason the situation i m facing is repeating again, but this time is being really different and more painful than others; i start to loose control of my life, i feel sad, and i cant keep going with my things of everyday. If i knew what it is.. This time i realize that i am very valious, that i m lovable and that i have a wonderful life, family, friends.. And that i just have to flow with all these great things and people that i ve been blessed with, and enjoy, and be present! Why is this so difficult to hold on to sometimes? Now i understand how important is to be grateful and dont try to change things all the time, things are ok the way they are sometimes without our intervention. I hope i learn from this one and come back to normal with enormous trust and humility ,gratitude and more present than ever; i hope i can find my way to that soon, i am out of track at the moment; thank you all again, i feel so accompanied as im writing this; big hugsss:))
YOU ARE AWESOME LAURA,,,so happy you are here with all the LOVING SUPPORT of Our wonderful SOUL FAMILY,,,,,,,,,,,,we are here for you every step of the way, Darling, sending lots of LOVE AND BIG HUGS
Dear Panache, you have been asking:
“Not quite what you were expecting for a day devoted to humility, is it? ”
And you are right- I did expect something very different….-and here we are again…
EXPECTATIONS….the wellknown TRAP- would have been much more easy – stay in the flow without expectations-.except this one : I EXCEPT THE BEST. Period.
As I had fallen into the wellknown trap- it took me a while to get to my FULLY OPENNESS again- waisted energy?
NO- necessary energy to acknowledge what happened-.not getting angry- FEEL all upcoming emotions and stay with them – somehow a process: **RECEIVING MYSELF OUT OF MYSELF***** GREAT- THANK YOU!****
The illuminating point has been TODAY:
The sequence, the order of : ” EMBRACE Your DARKNESS, then you will be able to embrace your light”- and everything in between….hits the point.
In crawling out of a SHADOW no matter whether it shows up small or big- with outline or diffusing silhouette- I reach out for a light created by a match or unsteady candle or floodlight- WILL BE ME- and ONLY ME- authentic…
Love you for this opportunity of GROWTH❤️
Thank YOU everyone, for all your beautiful comments and posts. They are so uplifting to read. Thank YOU, Panache for helping me to see that humility includes owning and loving all the parts of me that I have tried to banish. Attempting to fill out the worksheet bought up lots of tears and sadness, I will sit with it and do it properly this afternoon. Much love and light to all!
Does anyone besides me have a negative reaction to the word “should”? My experience is that it’s a word we use to judge and beat ourselves up — and other people, society, church, etc. do so well. I’ve pretty much eliminated that word from my vocabulary — and that feels REALLY good! What’s YOUR experience?
“do so as well
I’m with you, Carol. The word SHOULD negates everything. It’s either I should do this or I should have done that. In the case of I should do this: By using the word SHOULD, it places you in a corner of frustration and diminishes you, because if you adhere to what you SHOULD do, you are compromising or settling by doing something you would prefer not to do. We need to act on what it is we WANT to do and not what is expected of us. Too many times, we put ourselves second. Too often, we do things to be liked or please others, at our expense. So unless it is vital to fulfill an important responsibility or a promise or a timely essential action, I say, throw the SHOULD out. I find that when you do the SHOULD instead of the WANT, you had better hop on board and not resent the action cause invariably you realize that the action was a mistake after all. LISTEN TO YOUR INNER SELF!!! That little voice never steers you wrong. So when my son tells me he is really tired after a day’s work, but SHOULD do such and such…I smile and ask him, “What is it you WANT to do? Can it be done at another time?” I’d like to say that he smiles back and says, “Thanks for reminding me.” But he does what he does and I’m hoping that one day he will listen to himself. Haha. In the case of I should have done that: We can’t go back. What’s done is done. But then why do we beat ourselves up? I think I just went full circle with my answer to your question. Yes, you are right. Let’s eliminate SHOULD all together. 🙂 [Sorry for the essay-got word-winded!] <3
Well put, Donna! I love the term “word-winded”! Can I use it? The term I often use for the word “should” is tyrannical. ❤️
Absolutely! The term just kind of – blew out of me. LOL
Tyrannical says it all. <3 (Thanks for the heart yesterday. Wish I could do that on this computer. Maybe on my ipad or phone?)
Donna, all I did was copy one of the larger ones and then copy it into my posts. Can you not do that on your computer?
Donna, you can actually go to one of my posts or anyone else’s that has that large, lush heart and click your mouse on it and copy it. Then you can copy it into any post you want. The problem is that if you “cut and paste” any other text, you’ll lose the heart. Luckily, we can find them all over this discussion board so it’s not a problem to cut and paste it again. 🙂
(((((CAROL!!!))))) Can’t believe I am just seeing this today! WOW! Who knew that once we were finished (post day 33) I would finally learn how to do ♥♥♥♥. I had forgotten to check back here before. THANK YOU! A nice surprise, just when I could use one. Love you, Carol.
So drop it from your vocabulary. Those are sometimes what appear to be small insignificant changes we make in our world and something energetic and vibrational takes place. I vote for and as of now remove SHOULD from my own dictionary and vocabulary. I either “AM” or “AM NOT” doing. Works for me and it actually has a very nice feeling energy attached to the process. This is a nice one Carol.
Thank you, Dave. Not using that word “on me or anyone else” has given me an immense amount of freedom and space. ❤️
Found the pdf exercise hard but enjoyed it. The questions were a great way of learning all the good things about myself. i’ll come back and do it many times as it gave me joy which is something usually only my daughter gives me. It didn’t make me feel humble. i was brought up to be humble and i’ve also experienced the opposite of( someone brought up not to be humble ) and it made me understand why my parents chose to bring us up to be humble! i read the comments and related to the comment about being taught to be invisible and i know not being heard is something that really annoys me. For me this exercise helped me see myself more clearly and made me clearer about my soul signature. Thanks Panache!

((((((MARY))))) i’m moved to tears by your beautiful and joy-filled post. I’m SO glad that you SHINED at work today and every other place where you shine. I believe that’s our natural way of BEING and all that’s in the way of expressing it ALL THE TIME is the layers and layers of GUNK we’ve accumulated — the lies we’ve been told — and BELIEVED. Much love to you. ❤️❤️❤️

I love you Panache Desai for open a whole new world of Love and Wonder so unselfishly and with a true intention sent by The Divine. You have been Blessed by The Divine for reasons even you do not know, but sharing them with the world is proving to the Divine, that you do not think you are better than he is, you are spreading his message so we may come to him and his beloved son, where we belong. Thank You for that lesson. We all need to have our eyes opened in differet ways. The Divine is a very big part of my life and always has been. It’s the teachers like you that help us see these wonderful gifts we have been given so graciously, and all we have to do is say thank you, follow his tenants, forgive, help as much as we can, and give back as much as we can. Thank you again, I truly Love you. I wish you would email me back if you see this. Love Mary 🙂 <3 i^i
I am so humbled by you and your love for mankind
I love YOU too Mary ❤️
