Guided Reflection - Recognizing and Releasing Feelings of Unworthiness
Posted Sep 07 2008 8:36pm
Recognizing the beliefs and fears that we hold that sustain our feeling
of unworthiness is the beginning of freedom. You might find it useful
to pause for a few minutes to consider the parts of yourself that you
habitually reject and push away.
Take a moment to consider your feelings about your body, your mind,
your emotions. Do you accept these parts of yourself? Do you feel that
you are a bad person because of the way you behave?
As you go through your day, pause occasionally to ask yourself, “This
moment, do I accept myself just as I am?” Without judging yourself,
simply become aware of how you are relating to your body, emotions,
thoughts, and behaviors. (From "Radical Acceptance" by Tara Brach, PhD)
