Inner Growth Exercise of the Day: Being You Doesn’t Have To Be So Hard
Exploring how being you doesn’t have to be so hard; what this means in inner growth terms and how you apply this in your life through your inner world – the inner conversations from the heart and mind you have as you process a situation that contrasts with who you are from within; why it’s only an inner job at the emotional and conscious level with the traits, thoughts, differences, and/or all aspects of who you are that you don’t feel resonate with the world outside of you; and how it’s through finding inner peace and harmony within you from the heart with who you are that you make it not so hard to be you long-term and in a loving, accepting, and understanding way of the external that is different from you.
Your Inner Growth Exercise of The Day depending on where you are in your journey:
- Inner Growth Exercise for Beginners: Take one or two traits that you have a hard time sharing with others or being with others (traits that are part of your personality or thoughts on topics related to life matters, personal opinions). Look for one to three ways you can accept them (these traits and personal opinions) within yourself at the heart level (with love for self) and write at least one explanation for why you can understand why others don’t get it. Include in this sentence another sentence where you conceptualize from a place of love (for self and others), how you can accept that they won’t, potentially ever, get it.
- Inner Growth Exercise for Intermediate: Find any or all areas of yourself that you hold in a place of duality according to your inner self and the external (the world outside of you). Look at the thoughts and emotions that arise from the conflict or differences between the two (you and the external); and bring forth aspects of neutrality to them so that you can harmonize the dualities in a way that allows both to exist, each for their reason. Also add an ending thought that brings forth unconditional love so that you can use it to bring you to a place of neutrality (consciously and internally/on an emotional level) and centeredness when you are experiencing the situations that highlight these differences that are what you are versus what the external is or what it tells you it would want you to be.
- Inner Growth Exercise for Advanced: Journal about how it is to be you now that you’ve found inner harmony with the differences that you are from the external you live in. Write about what inner growth comes from being able to be in this place of unconditional love, risen consciousness, and focus on within as it interacts with the without (external).
