one of my clients came to a session excited because she had bought herself a new coat because she felt so good about herself.
it was a beautiful coat and it made her happy. she was smiling and filled up with pleasure.
that`s why it made it difficult to tell her the next thing.
out of loving ones self it is not about having things. we need a coat to keep us warm when it`s cold........
an act of unconditional love for one`s self would be to recognise that a coat is fine, but not today......
i`m o.k. without it.
and walking out of the store and watching as the feelings for a coat are replaced by the feeling that things really are alright.
the state of having a coat or not is totally seperate from loving one`s self unconditionally.
if it`s snowing outside, wear a coat.
buy a coat if you need one.
don`t buy a coat to feel good.
feel good unconditionally first.
it is the only thing.
a million coats are not going to warm a person without unconditional love for themselves.
it was a beautiful coat though........and she understood what i meant.
