The power of allowing and accepting
Words of affirmation are powerful tools.
There is also power in being able to accept our fear, anxiety, anger, unworthiness, insecurity, and uncertainty, in the moment.
Acceptance of our lower-based emotions allows their influence on us to dissolve.
Acceptance means we observe our fear, anger or anxiety with neutrality and do not attach or create stories from it. Just because I don’t understand something doesn’t mean I’m stupid. The story we tell ourselves does. The meaning we attach to the emotion does.
Three magical words
Words have power. I have found three words that instantly dissolve and transmute the negative influence. They are:
“And that’s okay”
- I might be feeling anxious about failing. I say to myself, “I am really anxious about failing… and that’s okay.”
- Or I might be feeling sad and uncertain about a relationship. “I am feeling uncertain about whether this is the right relationship for me… and that’s okay.”
- I am feeling guilty about …… and that’s okay.”
I’m sure you get the gist.
The key is to say the statement, “I am…, then pause, then add ‘and that’s okay’.
Have a play and experience for yourself.
Many blessings as we accept ourselves as the perfect imperfections as we are. It really is okay!
I’d love to hear below how this has this helped you allow and accept the flow of your emotions and know the (im)perfection that you are.
