I had a client recently who shared a self-destructive habit with me that she was ready to let go of. She had worked on it before with other trained professionals, without much affect. She wanted to see if I could help her.
We all have self-destructive habits. We may shop too much, drink too much, hurt ourselves physically, hook-up with abusive men (o women,) deny ourselves what we need and most of us shame ourselves with brutal self-criticism.
Whichever your current form of self-abuse is, I encourage you to work with it as I coached my client to. But, know before you start, this is a tad radical.
I want you to love yourself into life.
I hear you. There’s a cynical voice in your head right now that is saying, “that won’t work!.”
You think you need discipline or “fixing.”
Let’s face it, we often feel like we’re “broken” or “not good enough.” The obvious answer is to whip ourselves into shape!
I bet you’ve tried that. My clients try it.
It doesn’t work.
It isn’t sustainable.
We can’t discipline or beat ourselves into our next break-through.
Your next break-through, the one that changes you forever, will come from love.
A deep sense of how lovable and worthy you are. Period. No matter what.
Not loving yourself because you successfully complete certain tasks, or hit your ideal weight or stop a destructive behavior.
Loving yourself because you are. You are. You are a unique spark of the Divine.
Created to spread your special magic into the world.
My client got her big break-through.
Are you ready for yours?
Email me and let me know what you’re ready to break-through in your life. We can get to work on loving you back to life this week!
