Embrace Yourself & Let Your Past Go
High Vibrational Healing for Feeling Safe
Many people don’t feel safe in their own skin. They don’t know how to feel secure with who they are and what they do, either because of their physical body or because of their self-concept, beliefs, and fears. Fortunately, there are ways to use meditation and high vibrational healing to connect your physical body with your mind, allowing you to feel safe in your own skin without needing anyone else to validate you or make you feel whole. Learn more about feeling safe through meditation and high vibrational healing below.
1) Find Your Center
When you sit down to meditate, it’s important to understand that your meditative state isn’t just about emptying your mind of thoughts—it’s also about finding your center. This is something you should always do before you begin a new meditation session or focus on a specific part of your body. I’ll often wake up in the morning, before I check my phone or start my daily tasks, to find my center. It allows me time to think clearly and feel relaxed while starting off my day. In essence, find your center means that you should acknowledge how you are feeling mentally and physically; it gives you time to gather yourself mentally so that when things get busy or chaotic (and they will) you still know who you are. Center yourself by focusing on your breath, slowly counting from 1 to 10 as you inhale and exhale. You can even place one hand over your heart and one over your stomach—or use both hands over your heart if you feel more comfortable doing so. Spend a few moments calming yourself until you feel ready to move forward into each day with strength and calmness. Use what works best for you until it becomes a routine that puts you at ease each morning.
2) Accept Yourself
I’ve always been a firm believer in learning to accept yourself, flaws and all. The reality is that it’s hard to feel safe in your own skin if you don’t accept who you are or what you’ve done. It’s normal to dislike certain things about yourself—everyone has shortcomings—but try to focus on how far you’ve come instead of where you feel like you could be better. Accepting your strengths will lead to greater success than trying to fix perceived weaknesses. And once you’re comfortable with who you are, it becomes easier to forgive others. You can see beyond their faults and find common ground in which both parties feel safe enough to meet halfway. When two people are being truly authentic, there’s nothing they can say that won’t be accepted; when we feel emotionally safe with someone else, we let our guards down and become more vulnerable. If we can feel safe expressing who we really are and what we think, we stop judging those around us so harshly and start accepting them more easily. People can sense insincerity, so hiding behind masks never makes anyone feel 100 percent at ease with themselves or another person. Be true to yourself by accepting both your talents and quirks—it might take some time before you’re completely confident in these parts of yourself, but over time it gets easier.
3) Meditate On Acceptance
Feeling safe can be an elusive state of mind. But meditation and self-acceptance go hand in hand: Through meditation, you learn to accept yourself unconditionally, no matter how you feel about yourself at any given moment. It doesn’t always come easily, but it’s worth it in order to be able to feel safe in your own skin. Use a mantra—like I am love or I am enough—to calm yourself when feelings of inadequacy start to creep in. Embrace your life as is, with all its ups and downs; everything will pass in time, including a less-than-stellar feeling toward yourself that may strike on occasion.
4) Spend Time Doing Things You Love
This sounds self-explanatory, but we often find ourselves forgetting to take time out of our day for things that we enjoy. Whether it’s watching your favorite TV show, hanging out with friends or having a meal alone, don’t be afraid to take some time each day to do something you love. It will help you feel more at ease physically and mentally. Don’t forget: You deserve it!
