At the moment, you are so layered with other people’s opinions of you that you have forgotten the divine light that is in the center of your being.
It was during childhood that you learned to accept other people’s opinions about every aspect of your life. Those opinions and beliefs helped form the basis of your feelings of self-worth, especially as it pertains to your worthiness to be loved, your intellect, your looks, and your ability to accomplish things.
How you currently esteem yourself started with what happened in your home environment growing up, where your parent’s opinions had the power to make you feel elated and invincible OR very deflated and worthless. In addition to what your family members had to say about you, you received lots of feedback as you got older from your teachers, peers, bosses, significant others, authority figures and experts, and a multitude of different persons.
If you were able to ignore the comments, adjectives, and points of view coming your way—particularly the unsolicited, negative ones that were meant to tear you down or keep you disempowered and submissive—then you probably have a healthy level of self-confidence today. Yet if you took any of those harmful opinions and destructive comments to heart, it’s never too late to shake them off and give yourself permission to hold yourself in high regard once again. And EFT tapping is the tool that allows you to do just that!
As you are healing your relationship with food and with yourself, you will begin to seek internally and consult yourself first in all matters of the heart, for the positive, uplifting opinion you have of yourself is truly the one that counts the most.
