We tend to talk a lot about and so have a clear understanding of different issues in our lives.
We discuss meditation, talk about why mindfulness is so cool, or why self-awareness helps us become more successful.
BUT DO WE ACTUALLY DO THE WORK?
By reading and talking about something we do not ‘know it’. We gain a mental understanding of the topic but we do not have a personal experience of it, neither do we ‘own’ it.
Self-acceptance is one of such topics. Self-acceptance is something we ‘should’ do by practicing it and finding our the best way to go about it so to know we really ‘own’ it!
Mostly, we need to do the very things that we do not feel like doing because it is outside of our comfort-zone.
I would like to invite you to take this challenge and practice self-acceptance so you can experience it and own in.
The challenge will go on for a few days. Look for my posts daily to learn what you will do to practice and investigate what it is like for you to accept yourself.
It is Important to experience Self-Love and Acceptance. To learn to love ourselves unconditionally. We can free ourselves from the mind (judge and victim) and become who we came here to be. In self-acceptance, we can discover our gifts and begin to share these with the world. Until we focus into judging ourselves, it is unlikely that we can see and share our gifts. We can leave behind the negative thought processes and begin to vibrate a positive energy into our lives and the lives of those around us. When you discover the truth of who you are, you will no longer be attached to your pictures of perfect people or things to “make” you happy. Happiness will reveal itself gently in your life, and emerge from you…
“Emancipate yourself from mental slavery, none but ourselves can free our minds” Bob Marley
In the morning listen to this very short meditation, then do the tasks throughout the day. See them below.
For the next 24 hours, catch yourself when you are seeking validation from the external world, whether from the people or the things around you. Remember, that these don’t define who you are.
During the day find some time to this. Write down 5 qualities or character traits you appreciate about yourself and include a time when these came into play. Suggestion: you may want to listen to the meditation again before you start doing the task.
Over the next week, look for things you appreciate about yourself to add to this list.
In the evening, before you go to bed, watch this video and do 5 rounds of tapping with 5 different issues. Follow the instructions in the video.
