10 Ways to Love Yourself and Overcome a Bad Childhood

You love yourself based on how much you perceived your parents loved you. If it wasn’t enough, then it’s up to you, now, to send love to those empty places within you. You can’t heal by blaming them, repeating the story over and over, or expecting everyone else in your life to make up for your parents’ mistakes. Only you can heal yourself from the emptiness, neediness and low-self esteem that an emotionally damaging childhood can create. Only YOU loving YOU works – not managing to get love from someone else, but only from YOU! We often look for love outside of ourselves, yearning for approvial, appreciation, hugs, positive support, attention, etc. but we find that not only can we not always depend on others to fulfill our emotional needs, but it is also exhausting trying to manipulate them to do it. So, how do you do this…how do you… Read the rest....

Happiness is Within You

Most of us spend a lifetime chasing down happiness…and it somehow is so elusive. I’ll be happy when I graduate, I’ll be happy when I’m married, I’ll be happy when we have a house, I’ll be happy when my bills are paid, etc. Even when we achieve a goal, there is always another one. Now, here is the beauty of Begin Within. Happiness is always inside of you. It is always there, but gets covered up by other emotions. All of these emotions are triggered by what’s going on outside of you, but the happiness, love, joy or any other emotion resides inside… all the time. You can wait for something outside of you to trigger happiness, or you can take command and trigger it yourself. You subconscious doesn’t know the difference between what’s going on outside your mind or inside your mind. If you imagine a time when you… Read the rest....

Standing Up for Yourself

Many interpersonal conflicts and anger arise when you feel that your rights have been violated.  One solution we use is to be passive, but then, you’re not only mad at the person who violated your rights, but angry at yourself for not standing up for yourself. The solution is to be assertive and learn to honestly and effectively communicate your feelings and needs to other people. One of the reasons we hesitate to be assertive is because we are worried about what the other person will think. This is giving your power away, placing the power outside of yourself. In order to take care of yourself and solve your problems, you have to keep your power,  taking action based on your inner truth, acting from the heart. When you have the courage to stand up for yourself and claim your own power, you feel whole. You can’t be responsible for… Read the rest....

Healing Painful Charges and Wounds from the Past

We all have them. Emotional wounding from our childhood. An event, a person, something happened to create a cluster of pain and beliefs surrounding that pain. Years can go by, and as long as that wound is still festering, all it takes is a word, or a certain look on someone’s face to trigger it. Then suddenly you are embroiled in a cloud of turbulence, lashing out at the poor person or thing that set you off, telling yourself a story of pain. A story that seems so true, that controls you so much, that eats away at your happiness. I have a wound around rejection. It comes with a set of beliefs to support it. “I’m not loved, people will betray me, I’m not wanted, I have to earn love, even good things won’t last, etc.” Once you get a wounding, it’s always there preventing you from seeing what… Read the rest....
