Merriam-Webster Dictionary definition: (v.) 2. to do away with as completely as if by pulling up by the roots.

Eradicate and inner growth: What we choose to eradicate from our life or our person is something that we’ve contemplated a lot on before making the decision and being able to take action to remove that something.  This contemplation brings about inner growth as we will find out so much about ourselves during the thought process and we will also make decisions to bring about changes that we feel are right from the heart.


Eradicate and inner growth action steps:

  1. In-depth self-exploration questions: What are things that I’ve chosen to eradicate from my life? What about from my person (behavior, judgements, reactions, thought processes, etc.)?  What have I learned about life from the things I’ve eradicated over time?  How has eradicating thing affected my relationships?  What does it mean to me to eradicate something?


  1. List or word bubble: Make a list or word bubble with eradicate at the center and then list or put around it all the other words that come to mind associated with it. From the list you compiled use one word to describe the common feeling they all bring about.  With that feeling in mind name one instance where you eradicated something that comes to mind.  Now write about the thought that came to mind using the words from your first list.


  1. Bring your awareness to your feelings about when you eradicate something from your life. Let the feelings speak for you and the relationship you have with this moment.  Focus on your emotions without thinking too much or deviating from the moment.  Once the message feels clear, move on to letting your thoughts flow and see what experiences and feelings they bring about.
