Being Self-Accepting

How to we accept all of who we are - our humanness and our Divinity?

In working with the inner critic or Gremlin, my own and my clients, I have seen that being aware of our thoughts and limiting beliefs helps us to move toward self-acceptance. Challenging the truth of our thoughts instead of unconsciously being controlled by them is a practice. Simply by the act of observing our thoughts without criticizing ourselves for having them, we step into the present moment. We breathe. We sense what is happening in our bodies. We get connected to a deeper part of us, our Divine core.


I am in the moment. I am satisfied with all of who I am and accept my life just as it is. I now have the opportunity to create what's next for me from a place of gratitude and openness.
