★I approve of myself

When we are worried we go over things like 400 times a day. No, its not too many times.

Let “ I approve of myself “ become a walking mantra. something you just say over and over and over yo yourself almost non stop!

Saying “I approve of myself”
is a guaranteed way to bring up everything buried in your consciousness that is in opposition.

When negative thoughts come up, such as, “ How can I approve of myself when I am fat?” or “It’s silly to think this can do any good,” or “I am no good,” or whatever your negative babble will be, this is the time to take mental control.

Give these thoughts no importance. Just see them for what they are. Another way to keep you stuck in the past! Gently say to these thoughts “I let you go” “ I approve of myself.”

Doing this exercise can bring up stuff like “This feels silly” It doesn’t feel true” “it’s a lie” “It sounds stuck up”

How can I approve of myself when I do that?

Let all these thoughts pass through.
These are only resistance thoughts. They have no power unless you choose to believe them!

I approve of myself, I approve of myself,I approve of myself….

In response to Peace&Harmony’s post:

I agree this is wonderful advise. We all have self doubts or negative thoughts from time to time. If we simply let then pass or be okay and NOT give them power by believing them, then they are harmless.

When other say unkind things to me, and it does happen, sometimes unintentionally, when I interpret things said as hurtful, I have made a habit of asking myself is it true. For example: when someone I haven’t seen in quite a while says my you are looking well fed or old, or whatever, I might think am I fat or old? Then I ask myself, “Am I fat? “ or “Am I old?” If I believe it is true, then I sometimes get my feelings hurt temporarily. I say temporarily because if it is true like being overweight, I can change it by eating better, increasing my exercise and so on. In the example I used about being old, I ask myself is it true and yes we are all getting older every day, so that is okay and my feelings are not hurt by that statement. If their statement to me is not true then I say to myself, “That’s okay, it’s just their opinion,” and I do not get my feelings hurt.

When I have unkind or negative thoughts about myself I do the same thing. I ask myself the same thing. Is it true? Ex. I might think that’s a stupid poem I’ve written or how stupid that sounds. Then I ask myself, is it true am I stupid? Of course not. I graduated from high school and then went on to college and had a successful career. If I think it’s true, then I can change it by going back to school, hiring a tutor, or so on and so on. I approve of myself, I approve of myself!

Words are like seeds. When you write them out, they grow into your dreams and spark the imagination of others.

SELF ESTEEM

One of the barriers to allowing positive affirmations to work is feeling “ not good enough “ that is, you feel that you don’t deserve to have good in your life.

Below is a list of self-esteem affirmations. I’d like you to see how many of them you can memorize, and then repeat them often. Doing so will help change that worthless feeling you might be carrying around. To one of self worth.

Then watch your positive affirmations materialize.

I choose to feel good about myself.

I stand on my own 2 feet.

I accept and use my own power.

I am totally adequate for all situations.

It does not matter what other people say or do.

My self esteem is high because I honor who I am.

I deserve all that is good.

My life gets more fabulous every day.

For every problem that I may create I am confident that I can find a solution.

Life supports me in every possible way.

I like these I had to leave a couple out.

Go awake everyone for work.

These are good rules for us all to follow. I especially like rule # 1, 4, 5, and 6.

Good morning all,

I am happy to see you all could pull something of interest from my list of rules most importantly for me is I am not going to “over think” I have anxiety and my thoughts can some times get the best of me.

But I made up this list in December while I sat back and reflected all the months before in 2015

=D BIG SMILES to all of you
