Empower Yourself

in Self-improvement

The majority of people in Western society have come to accept that we are spiritual beings having a human experience-if albeit only an accepted concept. There is an innate awkwardness for the soul as it is confined in the body, with an indoctrinated disconnect between soul, body and mind. Thus, coupled with only a conceptual belief, the decisions you make, there is the potential to lapse into the belief that since your spirituality is merely a concept self-doubt takes root and forms insecurities along with complex emotions that is a mix of equal parts of inadequacy, isolation, fear and hopelessness, a debilitating combination.

Your feelings of insecurity that prevent you from fulfilling your potential by inducing you to abide by arbitrary self-limitations are nothing more than erroneous perceptions. You might feel un-confident and unsure of yourself because you judge yourself harshly. Healing the root cause of the insecurity is a simple matter when you access your subconscious mind and process the emotional aspects of what has prompted you to have these insecurities.

When you feel insecure, you not only perceive yourself as incapable of meeting life's challenges, but, also fraudulent and unworthy of your true happiness. Feelings of not being good enough is how many people express their insecurities. You might be living life plagued by a sense that others have judged you, seemingly finding you lacking something. This sense of being judged, which the world sometimes does, is a manifestation of your belief about yourself. As a result, you are robbed of your personal power and rendered unable to feel positive about the choices you make.

Everyone feels insecure at times, because each of us is born into the world with unique strengths and challenges. If you find yourself with feelings of insecurity, however, endeavor to understand the source. If you were berated as a child or seldom receive positive reinforcement in the present, you will carry a sense of not being, 'good enough.' When a child feels berated, the child has a tendency to withdraw from risk or uncomfortable situations that might amplify feelings of insecurity.

When you discover the origin of your insecurity, focus on your abilities that you can use to achieve your
goals, rather than focusing on the insecurity. Your insecurities were a way to cope then, this is now. Shift into focusing on your empowered self. The more you engage with your empowered self - by taking risks, bolding facing challenges and acting decisively the stronger you will grow.

Insecurity is not objective. Rather, it is an emotional strategy and an interpretation of your value unconsciously based on doubt, shame, and fear. As you heal those underlying emotions through courageous action and intentional self-love, you will discover that you are capable of achieving more than you ever thought possible.
