Why Accepting and Allowing Is So Powerful
Accepting (as in tolerating anything that is disappointing, uncomfortable or even painful with the end goal of empowering yourself) is…
*An act of rebellion against the ego, which always wants things to be safe and secure and certain
*Helps you let go of the past and forgive when it is appropriate
Allowing (as in giving yourself permission to have or be something empowering or helpful) is…
*A necessary mental and emotional habit that I predict you as a recovering compulsive eater need to develop. Self censorship and unconsciously wanting to prove to the world that you are not enough is very very common amongst my clients.
*An act of rebellion against inappropriate shame
Together, accepting and allowing …
*Prevents you constantly seeking affirmation from others
*Helps kill that craving for something external to solve your problems. We have all grown up brainwashed into the consumerist fantasy that there is an external solution to everything.
*Is a necessary underpinning to any goal or ambition you have
*Are powerful ways to dismantle the victim mentality
*Will make life easier
