“The most terrifying thing is to accept oneself completely” – Carl Gustav Jung

Tonight’s show was a whole lot of a good time. I really, really enjoyed doing this show because it feels spot on. If we don’t feel good about ourselves, our lives, and our state of mind, what can we really give to others?

Here are 3 quick ways to work with this:

1. Become aware of what you feel.

What is the emotion? If you cannot feel anything, you could be numb. It may take some time of being aware and checking in with your self to really know what you are feeling.

2. Accept whatever it is that you feel.

We often are too quick to try and change something we are feeling or ignore what we experience, take a moment to really experience whatever it is you are feeling. Close your eyes and look inside.

3. Decide what you need.

After becoming aware and experiencing whatever it is that you are feeling, ask your self: “What is it I need now? What would be the best decision for my life in this moment?” You might be surprised to hear what your response is!

Phil and I go into this and much more during our show. We discuss Spiritual Selfishness, which will be the topic of a future blog post. Give a listen and let us know what you think!

Give to your SELF this holiday season.

“Self-love, my liege, is not so vile a sin, as self-neglecting.” – William Shakespeare

    It may be terrifying on an ego level, but on the soul level, I find it completely exhilarating and intoxicating!
