Some of us already know that we hold limiting and negative beliefs about ourselves. These we can heal and change. The real problem is with the unconscious unworthy feelings we accept about ourselves but don’t even know is there.
For example, many children were told that they were a bad boy or girl. If these shaming statements were not offset by demonstrations of parental love, the unconscious will link their perceived badness with their feeling unworthy of love. This could profoundly effect the type of partner one would choose and the likelihood of the success of the relationship.
In another example, if a child was often told that he or she will never amount to anything, the unconscious feels unworthy of success and it will likely be harder to achieve. Or, when achieved, it may be sabotaged because the person will unconsciously feel that they don’t deserve it.
Here is one way to explore your unconscious worthiness: sit quietly and say to yourself, “I am a wonderful person capable of love and great success.” Now write down all the contradicting thoughts and emotions that surface after each time you state the affirmation.
This list of unworthy feelings can serve as a map for the healing of your unconscious. You can do a great deal to heal unconscious unworthy feelings on my web site: essentialpathways.com. Or, if you need some personal support I can be reached through the site as well.
The truth of you is that you are everything that you wish you could be. This greatness is just covered over by the shadows of the past, just as the sun is still there on a cloudy day.
