The solution is counter-intuitive

By Marion Nixon

After 2 recent conversations about accepting your circumstances in order to change them, it seems time to talk about this some more.

Acceptance feels counterintuitive as struggling to resolves a problem may seem the way to effect change. It’s NOT! As long as you are focused on trying to change something, you are effectively focused on what you don’t want, and as Jung said, what you resist persists… because a large amount of your energy is focused on what you are resisting.

When you accept yourself and or your situation without judgement you free up all that energy and can focus it on what you DO want. That makes it much more likely that you will achieve what you desire because you’ll see, and be able to take, opportunities that will move you towards it.

Easy to speak of acceptance but not so easy to do! I discovered the power of non-judgmental acceptance and how to achieve it, when I started using Emotional Freedom Techniques with my clients. The EFT process starts with the statement ‘even though I (feel …. /have this problem) I deeply and completely love and accept myself’. By working through the emotions activated by this statement my clients found it easier to have a more neutral response to their circumstances and it became possible to focus on what they wanted instead and plan how to achieve that.

There are 2 more steps in the process of breaking out of life patterns that no longer serve you but this one is the foundation of all transformation. You can work on this yourself, but I highly recommend working with a practitioner. Working regularly with a fellow practitioner has transformed my life on a much deeper level than I had previously achieved on my own. It’s hard to be both client and practitioner at the same time!
