Giving Yourself Grace
If you’ve been a follower of The Law of the Attraction or just a follower of the Personal Development World, and you notice that you still feel bad often, meaning you’re not getting the traction you desire…I invite you to see this in a different way.
I was talking to a colleague about this and she shared how she noticed when she was running her business and just trying to live her life according principles like creating a vision board, visualizing the things you desire, letting the Universe know the things you want, writing out all of the quality’s of the person you want to meet, she just felt bad all of the time. I was nodding my head in agreement.
This brings to mind a really important point…
What happens for you when you do everything you can think of to “get” or “attract” the things you want in your life and you “don’t” get or “attract” them?
I’ll go out on a limb and say that it’s likely you feel bad about yourself.
You blame yourself in some way. You make yourself wrong.
It’s really hard not to do these things in the world we live in.
When I woke up to the idea that much of the personal development and law of attraction world is all about…
If things aren’t showing up for you the way you want them to, then you must be doing something wrong. In other words, it’s your fault.
This is a bitter pill to swallow and one that I don’t think we need to swallow at all. I just think most of us are so used to blaming ourselves we don’t know there could be another way.
What if there is another way to see this?
What if the things you want, aren’t showing up for you because it’s not the right time?
What if the things you want aren’t showing up because there’s something better you’re meant to have?
What if this waiting period is where you’re learning how to let go of the ego’s agenda so that something so much greater can come into being for you?
I notice that Tapping has helped to keep clearing out the muck of learned limits, so that I can have a far more meaningful relationship with whatever I believe to be a force that’s greater than my very human self.
Tapping is allowing me to rekindle this relationship in a far deeper and more meaningful way.
I say this all the time…I am a flawed, fallible human. I make mistakes. I get things wrong. I get triggered and I get help when needed. I think that’s really important.
We’re never going to be perfect in a human body, and yet at the same time, we really already are.
I follow a doctor named Zach Bush and he worked ICU for years. On one particular day, he brought three people back to life in their bodies. All three were from vastly different backgrounds and experiences.
When they were lucid and able to talk, all three of them asked Dr. Bush why he brought them back. He was genuinely disappointed. But here was his takeaway.
Each of the three recounted this profound sense of love and acceptance for exactly who they are. No matter what had come in their lives. They knew, without question that we are all part of something far more lovable and acceptable than we’ve learned to believe we are. He said this changed him.
What if you could consider the idea that no matter what you have or haven’t done in your life you are always lovable and acceptable?
What if you could begin to remember and ultimately believe this about yourself? (Even just a little bit to start.)
What if you could practice using tapping to help you release the self-judgment that binds you to the things you judge yourself for?
What if by doing this you are practicing giving yourself grace?
I see it so often in this work, how hard many of us are on ourselves.
What if the things you appear to be stuck in, aren’t there because you’re doing anything wrong at all?
What if these “challenges” and “issues” are actually there because they’re meant to guide you to more self-acceptance and and self-kindness?
What if they’re meant to help you to learn to give yourself grace?
I don’t know about you, but this sure feels a lot better to me.
