What is true acceptance?

True acceptance is a life-changing practice which deeply influences how you feel and your inner peace.

It alters an experience to overcome difficulty and negativity.

To accept is a verb. Accepting is a fluid, active and dynamic concept.

It is practice that lasts our lifetimes.

It requires patience with ourselves.

It requires a deep love for ourselves.

It does not necessarily mean you agree with, like, enjoy, support or picked the outcome.

What it does mean is choosing in that moment to make space for what is happening right then and there.

To lighten the load you feel in your heart, in your soul, on your back, aching in your bones.

Where does this block sit? 

Feel into it.

Give yourself permission to stop struggling against it.

To stop fighting the outcome.

True acceptance is not easy, it is difficult. 

True acceptance is to melt resistance.

To let go.

To flow.
