Self-Discovery Guidelines to Access and Activate:

Writing down your insights is very helpful. 

Before you start, we encourage you to keep a journal of your explorations, so grab a journal, pad of paper or print the worksheet below.

1. Feel your body, take a few moments to settle in. Your body holds deep wisdom. Trust in it. Learn from it. Connect with it.

2. Bring your awareness to the specific Inner Resource of Acceptance, as you slow down, and take a few deep breaths.

3. Allow the word Acceptance to just drop into your field of being and notice what you experience with curiosity and kindness to yourself. 

Take your time, go slowly, and be patient with yourself to get the best results.

Explore the following questions with curiosity and kindness to yourself:

Can I accept myself just the way I am?

Can I accept my innocence?

Can I accept my dignity?

Can I accept my magnificence?

Can I accept my truth? Can I accept my beauty?  

Can I bring curiosity and kindness to myself as I open this inquiry into accepting myself and feel this in my body?

Take your time. Notice how you feel when you allow yourself to accept yourself just as you are.

Can I bring forgiveness, gentleness and kindness to what I perceive as my faults or mistakes, without judgment, but with compassion for myself?

Notice how you feel when you allow yourself to accept yourself just as you are.

Can I accept that I feel many hard, negative and sometimes painful feelings? Can I accept that I am deeply and fully OK even while feeling ‘negative’ emotions?

Can I accept that I might have a distorted perception of myself?

With curiosity, kindness, and gentleness, feel deep into the stillness of your innermost being, into the purity of your eternal and infinite spark of light.

In the calm, open, brightness of your being, can you accept that you are perfect, just as you are?

How do I feel as I contemplate these things?

We invite you to continue this journey of self-discovery. It is not a once-and-done experience. Please revisit this exploration into Acceptance and discover how it continues to deepen and enhance the quality of your life.

Take 5 Deep Breaths

1. Feel your body.

2. Relax your shoulders.

3. Choose a word that makes you feel peaceful, such as om, peace, or love.

4. Inhale slowly while mentally saying the word you chose. Pause before starting the exhalation.

5. Exhale slowly while mentally saying 1 with the first breath. Exhale saying 2 with the second breath, up to 5 or more.

Feel Your Body

Relax your body, and just be aware of how your body feels. Without changing anything, notice what you are feeling, and where you are feeling things in your body.  If your body wants to adjust a little, let it. Be curious how it feels as your body relaxes. (Resist any temptation to analyze or think.)
