Are you Stuck? Take a Look at Your Self Image

When clients come to see me it is because they are “stuck” and can’t move forward in a particular area of their lives. The issue is figuring out what is holding them back. The fact that they have an awareness of lack of momentum is the first step. Finding a solution is a matter of discovering what past programming is influencing them in the particular challenge they are facing. 

I thought it might be helpful to go over some of the various areas in which any of us could have limiting beliefs.  The first of these is Self Image.

Self image is about how you see yourself and how you think others see you. Your self image determines the way you live your entire life and sets the boundaries for what you can and can’t do. You learn this behavior from those who have had a significant influence over your life.  Perhaps they transferred a poor self image to you or you internalized comments from others as being negative.

The following statements are ones that some of my clients have used EFT on.  If they apply to you, then there’s a great starting point for you to clear some blocks.

I feel inferior
I depend too much on others
I blame myself for everything
I embarrass easily
I hate the way I look
I agonize over life
I set low goals
I give up quickly
I avoid direct eye contact
I avoid issues in which I feel weak
I am a poor conversationalist
I don’t come across the way I would like
I get embarrassed when people stare at me
I don’t socialize at parties
There are lots of things I don’t like about myself
I dress sloppily
I suffer from emotional illnesses
I prefer to play it safe
I don’t believe in myself
I don’t trust myself
I don’t feel free to express myself
I suppress my creativity.

There are obviously many more but these are a start.  If any/some/all of these are true for you, start using EFT (or another technique of your choosing) to “chop them down” and notice how your self image becomes much more positive.

In a Rut? The Secret to Getting Unstuck

Mary (not her real name) came to me because she couldn’t seem to lose weight (at least not more than 10lbs at any one time) no matter what she tried and she had tried most of the diets and products on the market.

What Mary didn’t realize was that food was not the real issue.  The “culprit” was the emotional baggage she carried around the issue of being thin. Her programmed beliefs were contributing to her holding onto stored energy (fat):

I don’t deserve to be happy with my body
My weight holds me back from earning more
My weight keeps me from making life changes
I want someone to love me as I am and THEN I will lose weight
Other family members are overweight and so that is my fate
My size allows me to avoid certain sports, hobbies or events
I avoid some social situations because of my weight
If I stopped eating ice cream, pastries etc, it would be like losing a friend
My weight allows me to be passive, to hold back
…etc, etc.

Every diet she had ever tried was an outside job.  She was supposed to shape up and act right externally: eat the low-fat foods, exercise more, and drink copious amounts of water.  What she needed was an inside job – an energetic approach to getting rid of the stored energy.  Or in other words, EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques).

EFT is a simple, easy-to-learn form of energy psychology (or acupuncture without the needles) that you can use to gain freedom from emotional and physical issues that hold you back from success in those things that are important to you.
