Last week I went to an art show with my husband. He looked so nice. But I was tired from the long work day, so I stayed in my work clothes instead of getting more dressed up. When we got to the event, I saw how others were dressed. And The Compare Game started….. “Why didn’t I dress up?… That lady looks nicer than me… Why did I wear this?… What do they think of me?…”
I know it’s something we all do- compare ourselves to others. Sometimes we end up favoring ourselves (“Geez- I can’t believe she wore that“) but often we end up kicking ourselves (“Geez, I can’t believe I wore this.”) Unfortunately, our ego is rooting for us to come out favoring ourselves, but at the critical expense of others. That is actually a no-win game. It means I am only good when others are not. And that is a terrible way to think and to live. Even the Dalai Lama is dismayed that we, in the West, particularly, have a habit of self-judgments and self-loathing. He knows we need to learn kind to ourselves.
But not feeling good enough is something that most of us suffer with- it comes from not feeling valued at some point when we were young. We got some feedback from the world and we believed it as truth about ourselves. Or we got an in-accurate understanding of our worth or abilities. And now we compares ourselves to the world and we come up short.
These limiting self-beliefs are what we are targeting at my next workshop.
My co-presenter, Dr. Lezlie Laws, is going to share with us how the Inner Critic comes into being, and help us understand how to identify it more clearly (so we can change it!). You can’t change what you don’t recognize.
Then I am going to show how to use EFT/Tapping to help dismantle those old beliefs & habit patterns. In the workshop, participants get to experience the benefits of using Emotional Freedom Technique, as it calms the nervous system and they get to strengthen positive thoughts about themselves and their abilities and worth.
I love doing this work, because I see how it transforms people- it is very healing and positively energizing! I know it increases my happiness and I hope to show you how it can help you manifest abundance in your life.
Register online to come be a part of this wonderful workshop experience. It is a safe place to learn and explore a technique that will be a great new tool in your self-care toolkit. 🙂
