Giving yourself permission to be negative!!

I have written before about giving yourself permission and even outlined 24 things I would do if I gave myself permission to.  Yet in the last couple of weeks, I have seen more evidence of how many ways we hold ourselves back in life because we do not give ourselves permission.

When was the last time you gave yourself permission to be negative? I love all of the work that has surfaced on “The Secret” and the “Law of Attraction“.  I believe it has given people an opportunity to look at their mindset and how their thoughts and actions create an attraction to what shows up in their lives.  What I have noticed however, is that many people are petrified to feel anything but positive and optimistic about their lives.  They do not give themselves permission to be negative, think negatively or anything of the sort.  Sometimes, feeling worried and negative is our reality and we just need to give ourselves permission to feel it because withholding it and pretending it does not exist keeps it fired up within your system.  What I suggest for my clients (and I do regularly for myself) is to give themselves full permission to feel the negativity .

Find a safe place for you to be alone and with your emotion

Outline everything about the situation that makes you scared, angry and negative,

Don’t hold back

Really get into it

Outline the worst scenario that could possibly happen.

Write it out

Give it a voice

When you feel you are at the end of this release, take a deep breath

Let it go

By allowing yourself to fully express the worry, fear and negativity you help to release it out of your system.  It no longer has any power over you.  Many people spend so much time worrying about being negative that they can’t move on from that place.  By naming it and giving it a voice, the emotion no longer has a hold over you allowing you to release it and let it go.

Let me know what you think.

Blog with you soon.
