“The most terrifying thing is to accept oneself completely.”
― C.G. Jung
Yesterday I did some floatation and decided to try something a little different than a meditation technique or just observation, recently ive been playing around with self love/self acceptance practises and have been finding them really helpful for gaining better insight and acceptance over some of my qualitys that I often find difficult to accept and as im sure you know What you resist persists.
So after getting in the pod and grounding myself for a little with breathing and relaxing my body I began by conjuring up a feeling of love in my body, I used an experiance I had the night before where I just layed outside on my trampoline for a half hour or so and completely blissed out looking at the sky and relaxing, after I got a solid connection to that feeling of love and just realising things as they happen I brought to mind a variety of things in my life that I find difficult to accept and patterns that I dont like about my self so much, after I bring these parts of me to mind I infuse the feeling of love and acceptance into those aspects and just notice them, notice them without judgement or without a need to change but just loving them and realising that nothing good can come from hating and creating conflict with these issues, focusing on how the only real way out is in.
I have to say recently I’ve found this kind of practise to be really helpful and conductive. Have you ever tried these kind of practises? Thanks for reading.
An amazing video on Leos channel from Actualized.org that explains the process in better detail 🙂 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GcNGtZPPSS8
