Most of us are hard on ourselves.
We can find fault in who we are, how we look, what we think, say and do.
If there is a way to judge ourselves we can usually find it.
Of course, if you are judging yourself you are not accepting yourself. Since self-acceptance is an important part of emotional wellbeing, self-judgement isn’t good for you.
One of the many ways we find to fall short is to have standards that we don’t meet. Some of these standards are our own but many of them were learned during life and just adopted as the right way to be.
These standards show up every time we use the words:
- I am too …
- I am not … enough
- I should …
- I should not …
Every time we say or think these things we are falling short of these standards and may use it as a reason to reject ourselves.
In this month’s EFT Café Andy Hunt will demonstrate a simple process to find out where we are judging ourselves negatively and then show you a simple process for dissolving those judgements using Steve Well’s Intentional Energy Processes(IEP).
Unfortunately this EFT Café won’t give you instant and full unconditional self-acceptance, but it will give you a practical way of developing greater self acceptance.
This EFT Café is on Wednesday September 9th, 2015 from 7pm to 9pm at St Oswald’s Hospice Teaching Centre, Gosforth, Newcastle.
