|Hey tell me if this describes you. You’ve done enough self work to know you’re supposed to “just accept yourself as you are,” or “love yourself and your body no matter what” or “know your worth.”|
But the problem is you don’t authentically feel it.
It’s super common among smart women on a spiritual path. In fact, a lot of the ladies at the last Freedom Talks Gathering related to feeling this way.
If you relate too, I want to share with you a game-changing tool I give myclients right when we start working together.
This tool helps you launch beyond the self-blame so you can get on an authentic and embodied path of freedom.
Because what I find is that most women who come to me are constantly judging themselves for not doing what the think they “should” be doing.
What they don’t realize is that it’s the judgement that is actually hijacking their freedom, not the thing they’re judging!
So if you want a more authentic way of being, then I have a suggestion for you.
Stop trying to “accept” things.
See acceptance is one of those spiritual terms that we try to make ourselves do but don’t or can’t actually embody.
This is because we tend to say we need to accept something (a.k.a. be cool with things just as they are), when actually all we really want to do is make it go away.
You can’t accept something and also have an agenda.
So instead of accepting, I invite you to do something else.
Embrace what is in this moment.
Embracing what is not trying to change anything but rather creating space for all of the disparate and conflicting feelings that are going on for you.
It’s wrapping your arms around the fullness of your experience right now, without making any of it wrong or trying to make it change.
For example, you’ve been trying to “accept” your body but all you feel is judgement towards it (and then judgement for judging yourself), instead, practice Embracing
….Embracing that there is a part of you that wants to love your body just as it is
….Embracing that there is a part of you that judges your body the way that it is
….Embracing that there is a part of you that thinks that if you judge yourself you’ll be more motivated to change what is
….Embracing that there is a part of you that judges the part of you that judges you for wanting to change what is.
When you embrace, you stop bracing against or resisting, and this, more than anything, is what actually allows it to begin to transform.
Is that tool something you’re willing to try out this week? If so, hit reply and let me know how it goes ❤️
