Acceptance and Change

Personalized support for learning how to integrate mindfulness into your life. Delivered fresh everyday by our world renowned experts. Choose meditation duration:

Hi, welcome back to

your Daily Mindfulness.

In today's session, we're going to

talk about acceptance and change.

Shame pain, and self hate cause us to do

things that serve a fear-based part of us.

We date people who reinforce the

feeling that we're not worthy of love.

We work ourselves into the ground

because we don't think we have

value unless we prove our worth.

We might eat too much unhealthy food

because it numbs a certain emotional pain.

We maybe overexercise because

it's the only thing that

gives us a sense of control.

Here's the thing.

When we start to mend our relationship

with ourselves, what motivates

us is no longer fear and safety.

Our motivation stems from

a more natural life energy.

We pursue things because of

intrinsic motivation, curiosity,

compassion, excitement, care,

joy, our natural life, energy.

As Carl Rogers said, "The curious

paradox is that when I accept myself

exactly as I am, then I can change."

So notice what your

motivation for changes.

Is it coming from fear or from love?

And as you go about your day, see if

you can ask yourself, what would I

be doing if I were leading from love?

Thank you for your practice.

Let's settle in for today's meditation.
